People are overlooked for a variety of biased reasons and perceived flaws: Age, appearance, personality. Bill James and Mathematics cuts straight through that. Billy, of the twenty thousand notable players for us to consider, I believe that there’s a championship team of twenty five people that we can afford. Because everyone else in baseball undervalues them – like an island of misfit toys.

That’s the way baseball go.
The only way you can make good at anything is to practice, and then practice some more.
It doesn’t matter if we were down 3-0. You’ve just got to keep the faith. The game is not over until the last out.
You never know what’s going to happen… And that’s the fun of it!! That’s what baseball’s all about!!
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Baseball is 50% from the neck up.
