Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I think we have to accept the three phases of the season for what they were," said Sox general manager Theo Epstein. "We got off to a really bad start. I think we've identified some of the reasons for that. Some of it, we'll probably never know. And then we played great for about four months. We went 81-42. I think we were the best team in baseball. I think that period represented sort of us at our best, our true talent level without any real issues dragging us down. And then obviously September, 7-20, as bad as you can get. We'll be dissecting that phase of the season forever." - By Ian Browne on MLB.com (10/03/2011, 'Full of promise, Red Sox left with questions', Source )
