Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The only disappointment was we (the 2004 Oakland Athletics) didn't make the playoffs, but there was a small margin of error, and Kenny (Macha / Manager) did a nice job with it. If you stand back and look at all the changes, and all the things that went on, and all the injuries we had this year, I think we probably did about as well as we could have." - Oakland Athletics General Manager Billy Beane (AP, October 4, 2004)
