Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We're (the 2009 Chicago Cubs) not far away from from getting close to where we were last year. I don't know about 97 wins, but to compete and win a division again, we're not far away. A little touch here, a little touch there." - Chicago Cubs Manager Lou Piniella on MLB.com (10/05/09, Carrie Muskat, 'Touch-up job in works for Cubs')
