Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"This has definitely been one of the most disappointing seasons (the 2009 Houston Astros) I can remember having here, and it's one of the few times where we've come into the last weekend of the season with absolutely no chance of making the postseason. It's foreign territory." - Lance Berkman on MLB.com (10/04/09, Brian McTaggart, 'Astros go quietly in finale against Mets')
