Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I'm really proud of this team (the 2005 Houston Astros). We've come back from so much, far more than last year, we've had so much to overcome and we kept on doing what we had to do. These guys go about their business in the right way, I'm talking about the young guys as well as the veterans." - Houston Astros Pitcher Roger Clemens on MLB.com (Jim Molony, 10/02/2005)
