Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It's been an odd year. It really has. It's not for a lack of playing hard. These guys have played hard all year. To get off to the type of start we did -- we showed signs of it at times but never anything really close to what we did in April. Not for a lack of playing hard, but it obviously hasn't been the type of year we expected, especially after the first month." - Arizona Diamondbacks Manager Bob Melvin (MLB.com, Steve Gilbert, 09/28/2008)
