Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We got it done today. It was really good to end the schedule (at PNC Park) on a good note. It was very important. We know we have a future. This team is young and we're going to hopefully play together for a long time. We're excited about the direction we're going." - Pittsburgh Pirates Shortstop Jack Wilson on MLB.com (Ed Eagle, 09/26/2004)
