Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"For all the hand-wringing since April about what the (2017 Chicago) Cubs couldn't do, stop for a moment and consider what they did in spite of their well-documented flaws. They won their division anyway, something the last seven World Series champions couldn't accomplish. They persevered. If last season was about the wait for the Cubs, this one is about the grind. If they return to the World Series, they might need eight games to win. It has been that kind of year." - Chicago Tribune Reporter David Haugh (09/27/2017, After nerve-wracking season, Cubs should make other playoff teams nervous , Source )
