Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Hendrick was called underachieving, lacking aggressiveness, even lazy at times. He had stopped talking with reporters for the most part, hence his nickname of Silent George with the Cardinals . 'We checked it over very thoroughly, we think, when we thought about getting George,' said Ken Boyer , Cardinals manager at the time of the deal. 'We couldn't find one single bad word about him.' In fact, the Cardinals found out the public perception and reputation was off base. Hendrick was misunderstood and somewhat miscast. With the Cardinals , Hendrick showed himself to be relaxed, sure, but highly competitive." - Author Michael Eisenbath in The Cardinals Encyclopedia (Temple University Press, May 14, 1999, "George Hendrick", Page 202-203)
