Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"After you've gone through some ups and downs and get back here, you really take every moment, every day at a time. I'm not going to lie, when I was younger I was looking ahead, ahead, and ahead. It probably got me into trouble performance-wise. So I'm just taking it a day at a time and appreciating what's going on, and go forward from there." - Neal Cotts (Chuck Garfien, Comcast SportsNet, The Long, Improbable Comeback of Neal Cotts , 06/09/2013)
