Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He's (Geovany Soto) going to be great. He's going to show he belongs here for a lot of years and he's going to carry this team all the way. He's taking things the way he's supposed to take them, and he's taken all the responsibility for the pitching staff, which is good, and he's going to keep getting better." - Chicago Cubs Catcher Henry Blanco on MLB.com (Carrie Muskat, 05/01/2008)
