"Not as winning as we (the 2005 Minnesota Twins) wanted it to be, but it's a winning season. That's important. It's really good for those young men. They're trying to impress and they finish up the season throwing like that. That's a nice way to go into the offseason. It's a good feeling for them and for us." - Minnesota Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire on MLB.com (Mark Sheldon, 10/01/2005)
