Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The Astros' stunning push through the last two weeks of the season left them with positive feelings about their season, even if they fell a couple of games short of making a historic recovery just in the nick of time. But even though the Astros hit well, pitched well and played good defense through a nine-game winning streak that was almost enough to overtake the Cardinals, it should not cloud the big picture. The Astros were a talented but flawed team this year, and the basic needs still exist going into the 2007 season." - Sportswriter Alyson Footer on MLB.com (10/02/2006)
