Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"When I was in Philly , we had a fifth division title, so it was like old hat. We had won 102 games, we clinched early, so it was different. It was very businesslike. In KC Yankees ), I feel like it is such a great mesh of both. You have guys that have never been there. You have veterans that are still excited about getting back there, but you also have the professionalism of the preparation before games. Just being extremely prepared for the game is something that the younger guys, when they go to another team or later in their career, they’ll be like, 'I remember when so-and-so did this.' Just learning things by osmosis, not even knowing that they're learning it from the guys that have been there." - Erik Kratz in The New York Sports Day (David Russell, 09/27/2017, Q & A with Erik Kratz , Source )
