All you really need to know about Bill Werber, the oldest living major leaguer, as interviewed by ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian.

1. Those damn hippies on the Red Sox killed his interest the game.

2. He shares most people’s take on Bud Selig.

“I don’t watch any baseball anymore,” he said. “I stopped watching because of Johnny Damon and, what’s his name? Alvarez? ¦ Ramirez? ¦ Yeah, [Manny] Ramirez. He had that long hair thing going down the back of his neck. And Damon had that beard. I wrote a number of polite letters to [commissioner Bud] Selig. I don’t believe in being abusive, that won’t get you nothing. He wrote me some innocuous letter back. It didn’t say anything.”
