Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Dave) Stieb's alleged character flaws, which were wickedly exaggerated (in my opinion) by some of the most thin-skinned hacks in the business, were the very same idiosyncrasies that made him such an effective pitcher: pride, towering self-confidence criss-crossed with a profound self-criticism, and an inability to trust anybody. - Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star
