Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Firpo (Marberry) was a character. On the mound, he'd grab at the ball, paw the ground with his spikes, fume, fret, wave his big feet in the batter's face, and the blaze through a fast one." - Catcher Muddy Ruel in Baseball Digest (Bill James, October 1978)

Did you know that Firpo Marberry is quoted in John Thorn's The Relief Pitcher: Baseball's New Hero (1979) as saying that, "If the relief pitcher holds the opposing club in check, he gets no credit. The pitcher who preceded him and couldn't stand the pace wins the game."?
