Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Trading Leyritz reinforces the team concept and commitment every player makes to the other players on the roster. To have good chemistry, everybody has to make a sacrifice to be a part of the team. Jim Leyritz was not satisfied with his role on this team. We thought it best for the ballclub, with the season it has going. to make a change that allows him to pursue his goals with another ballclub." - Red Sox General Manager Dan Duquette
