Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Before the season started, we (the 2005 St. Louis Cardinals) knew what was ahead of us -- the last season at Busch, and so many expectations. I hoped we would have a good year and sure enough we did. Coming into the weekend, we wanted to have a good weekend, and we did. And now I know we want to have a real good postseason." - St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony La Russ on MLB.com (Matthew Leach, 10/02/2005)
