Quote to note

"Joe Smith is one of the most professional good guys in our game. I remember a conversation I had with Smitty when he was going through free agency. I remember telling him, flat out, I said, 'We want you back so bad, but if we don't, I hope you break the bank.' He's what you want in a player." -- Francona, on former Indians setup man and current Angels closer Joe Smith
