"There are a lot of reasons this team didn't perform or didn't have the chance to perform the way we expected it to. You have to go back to the injuries, especially to the pitching staff and even some position players. Like the previous four years, we were always depending on our frontline players to carry the big load. If we had any serious injuries to those people for any length of time, we would be in trouble. This year, it was the worst year as far as that is concerned." - Washington Nationals Manager Frank Robinson on MLB.com (Bill Ladson, 10/02/2006)
