Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"When it comes to his baseball personality, (Chris) James is Type A Plus. Intense, driven, motivated and self-critical, James has pushed himself at each step. It is little wonder that at 26, he has had a stomach ulcer for six years. That is why the antacid tablets are never far out of reach. 'Baseball gave it to me,' James said. 'This game will drive you up the wall.' At times, his intensity has been his downfall. At times, it has been his source of strength. And in times like these, it has been both." - Staff Writer Curt Holbreich in the Los Angeles Times (06/23/1989, 'CHRIS JAMES : Baseball Drives Newest Padre 'Up the Wall', Source )
