Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The athletic ability of a pitcher is one of the most underrated facets of the sport. Some games I watch a Tommy Glavine or a John Smoltz or Billy Swift pitch, and I feel as if there are three superior middle infielders on the field at the same time. And there are. A Glavine or a Swift gives your defense two steps toward either hole, not to mention what they do to bunts, tappers, and plays like that." - Bobby Cox in Baseball Digest (September 1992, Peter Gammons, "Pitchers Help Themselves by Perfecting Their Defense")
