"We (the 2005 Washington Nationals) are not going to hang our heads about it, but we know out record should have been much better and we'll try to do better next year. We were always trying to put someone out there that was hurt. When you do that, it just gets to you after a while. After they came back from their injuries, they were working their way back into the lineup and that caught up with us. There's nothing we can do about it. The harder we tried to right the ship, the worse it got." - Washington Nationals Manager Frank Robinson on MLB.com (Bill Ladson, 10/02/2005)
