Quote to note

"It's probably not an understatement [to say] that he's an above-average first baseman. I don't know if Carlos always looks that athletic. Sometimes he's got his pocket hanging out or his zipper down, but he's very athletic. I think it's starting to show."
-- Francona, on Carlos Santana
