Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Steve Finley) insists that he doesn't do anything different. For whatever reason, the career numbers would bear out that he struggles very early in the season. The career numbers would also bear out that if you're patient, you stick with him. He'll figure it out and he'll put up the numbers you expect out of him by the end of the season." - Manager Bob Brenly
