Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It's a dichotomy, where the first four and a half months were very good and the last six weeks were less than what we would expect and what we wanted. You learn a great deal through adversity and you learn a great deal through success, so I'll take a little bit of both from both areas." - Baltimore Orioles Manager Dave Trembley (MLB.com, Spencer Fordin, 09/28/2008)
