Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"But it's spring. I'm feeling the sunshine erase my scowl, knowing the Royals have three Gold Glove winners, and three other regulars who have been nominees, all of whom can erase hits by opponents. Not sure anyone ever said defense wins championships in baseball. Probably not. Yet the (2014 Kansas City) Royals can combine enough other attributes with their defense to win a division pennant and play in the postseason this year. In fact, I'm predicting they will." - Sportswriter Kevin Haskin in The Topeka Capital-Journal (03/30/2014, 'Time is right for Royals to reach postseason', Source )
