Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Jose) Acosta is a pretty good pitcher, a trifle small in stature, but with plenty of well-known intestinal upholstery which is sometimes termed guts. He has a beautiful curve ball and a lot of speed for a little chap, and should make a great relief hurler for the Mackmen, if he doesn't die at the job through overwork. Acosta is a Cuban and came to this country with the invaders from the Antilles, and ( Clark ) Griffith has been sweet on him for some time. He acted in the relief role for [the] Nationals last year, and performed in no mean and insignificant manner." - The Philadelphia Inquirer (01/11/1922, Joe Dugan Traded to Washington for Bing Miller, Outfielder, Jose Acosta, Pitcher: Macks' Prima Donna Will Land in Boston , Page 16)
