Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It is true, the Sox sent me back down to minors, I think it was Tucson, one day before I was able to receive my bonus. I had to be on the roster for ninety days, but day eighty-nine was my last in the majors. Later that year, they did give it to me though, and I had no bad feelings, I just wanted to get back on the team." - John Matias (Baseball Almanac Collection, Personal Letter, May 2008)
