Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"You measure progress with how these guys' (the 2005 Cincinnati Reds) work ethic improved. You measure progress with whether you grind it out or not. There's different ways of measuring progress. It all comes down to, 'Are you playing in October or are you going home?'" - Cincinnati Reds Manager Jerry Narron on MLB.com (Anthony Castrovince, 10/02/2005)
