Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Bill) Selby was a versatile utility guy with a squatty body, and (Grady) Little thought he might be the perfect answer to a hypothetical problem. ''He said, 'What if (Indians catcher Sandy) Alomar got hurt, and then Einar (Diaz) went in behind the plate and something happened to him?' '' Selby recalled. ''He asked me if both of those things happened, could I go back there? I kind of laughed and said, 'Yeah, but if I did you might not let me back there again.' '' - Post Staff Reporter Tony Jackson in The Cincinnati Post (02/23/2001)
