Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"As bright as I feel like our (the 2005 Cleveland Indians) future is, it's a little hard to swallow (after a 3-1 loss to the White Sox). I think any experience in the game shapes your career. Hopefully, you grew from it. We will." - Cleveland Indians Third Baseman Aaron Boone on MLB.com (Justice B. Hill, 10/02/2005)
