Fill in the Blankety-Blank-Blank

From Jim Leyland, on the current Tigers situation (i.e., last place). MLB.com provides the brackets. There are so many it's comical:

"I don't give a [care] what [effect] it has," he said. "When people start making weak excuses in the newspaper, diversionary tactics and [stuff], that rubs me wrong. I don't give a [care] what effect it has. It can't have a bad effect, because we've been as [bad] as you can be. So it can't hurt. I'm not looking for problems here, but I'm a man. I look in the mirror. When I'm [bad], I'm [bad]. And there's a few [players] in that clubhouse right now that are [bad] too. And they need to look in that mirror. Don't look at mine, look at theirs. And don't look at the guy next to them. Look in the mirror yourself. Don't be pointing fingers over here and why we're not doing well. That's all weak [stuff]. Grilli's [stuff], some of that other [stuff] I read in the paper today, that's weak [stuff]. Weak."

how does MLB even know what he was saying?!
Are there baseball manager hermeneutics you can learn?

I'm not sure what you mean by "happy substitute words," but let's just say that Leyland didn't say "[care]" or "[effect]" or any of the other words in brackets.
