Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Jim Gott) probably has the best raw stuff on the staff. After Rich Gossage and maybe Juan Berenguer, he probably throws as hard as any righthander in the league, and when he gets his slider over, he's virtually unhittable." - Toronto Blue Jays Manager Bobby Cox in The Sporting News (June 13, 1983)
