What can one expect from someone who cheated his way into the 1951 World Series? His illegal sign stealing was every bit as bad as what the Houston Astros were caught doing. Durocher, unfortunately, was not caught, and reserve catcher Sal Yvars spilled the beans much too late.

Durocher appears in a story poem about the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1945, and one couplet in that poem has stayed with me:

It galled Durocher worse than fools
That someone else would break the rules.
