Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Sometimes the word 'great' gets overused, and it's a shame. There have been some truly great Cardinals who have come through the organization, but I don't know anyone greater or more beloved than Dave Ricketts." - St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa in the St. Louis Post Dispatch (Derrick Goold, 07/14/2008)
