Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The Mariners had such great expectations for the 2008 season coming out of Spring Training that manager John McLaren said anything less than a division championship would be a major disappointment. The optimism was short-lived and a season of high hopes became a season of despair as the Mariners became only the fourth team in franchise history to lose at least 100 games -- the first to do it in 25 years." - Sportswriter Jim Street on MLB.com (09/28/2008, 'Mariners let down by slow start')
