Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We're (the 2000 Los Angeles Dodgers) in a pennant race. To me, it's a lot tougher to pitch when you're not in one than when you're in one. I know how he (Ismael Valdez) can turn it up a notch. I've seen it, and when he does that, there aren't many better." - Los Angeles Dodgers Manager Davey Johnson on The Los Angeles Times (Brian Dohn, 07/28/2000, 'L.A., VALDES TRY IT AGAIN DODGERS REACQUIRE TROUBLED PITCHER')
