Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It pretty much goes without saying that we had pretty much the same group of guys as we had last year, when we went to the World Series. This year it's just been a matter of executing the fundamentals, coming out pitching consistently, timely hitting and defense -- that all leads to a championship-caliber team. There are times when we struggled at all those areas this year, and that's why we haven't put together a consistent season." - Colorado Rockies Pitcher Aaron Cook on MLB.com (Thomas Harding, 09/28/2008)
