Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"That's the thing about Bochy," said ESPN's Tim Kurkjian, who has worked the baseball beat for 35 years as a writer and broadcaster. "You talk to people who really know the game, and they always mention Bochy when it comes to the best managers today. Because everybody understands how good he is. It basically comes down to this: Nine other guys have three World Series wins, and they're all in the Hall. Bochy will be the 10th." - Bruce Jenkins in The San Francisco Chronicle (11/01/2014, 'Bruce Bochy stamps ticket to Cooperstown', Source )
