Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I really thought that we were going to do it. Last year we brought them (the New York Yankees) to Game 5, then this year, we go up 2-0 and lose the series. I don't know what can happen next year that would be worse than this." - Oakland Athletics Manager Art Howe (October 17, 2001)
