Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"If you look at the (2009 Oakland Athletics) season as a whole, it was a disappointment. It was an awful season, and going into the offseason, nobody here should be kidding themselves about what a bad year it was. You have to feel that, and hopefully do whatever it takes to make sure you don't feel it again." - Nomar Garciaparra on MLB.com (10/04/09, Mychael Urban, 'A's drop seventh straight to close 2009')
