Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Trailing in the American League Central division by as many as 12 1/2 games back in May, the Twins' hopes of making a return to the playoffs this season seemed to already have disappeared. Many had written the club off for dead at the time, and with the team floundering and doing everything in its power to just remain close to the .500 mark, that notion didn't seem like a far reach. But there was something about the chemistry and grit of the Twins that instead turned the 2006 season into what seems to be one of destiny." - Sportswriter Kelly Thesier on MLB.com (10/01/2006)
