Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We (New York Yankees) go into the winter every year and the expectation is to win the World Series. If you don't reach that, it's considered not getting your job done. I told them (the 2011 New York Yankees) that there was really nothing I could say that was going to make anyone in that room feel any better. There really wasn't. I thought they played hard all year long. I thought they gave us everything that they've got. I thought they played like champions would play, even though we're not going to be champions." - New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi on MLB.com (Spencer Fordin, 10/11/2011, 'Despite missing goal, Girardi proud of Yanks', Source )
