    • QUOTES (5)

      • St. Louis Starting Pitcher Jeff Weaver: It's all the belief in yourself, knowing that you're going to work through it. Just never say die. Just keep working.

      • St. Louis Manager Tony La Russa: I just saw Bob Gibson. When you're around here, especially if you're around here for a while, I just don't feel you can join the club unless you can say you won a World Series. Now we can say this group can join the club.

      • (on joining Sparky Anderson (Cincinnati and Detroit) as the only managers to win Series titles in each league)
        St. Louis Manager Tony La Russa: I have such a respect and affection for Sparky. It's such a great honor. He should really have this alone.

      • Detroit Manager Jim Leyland: We didn't play well enough. There's no excuse here. I don't really know what the reasons were.

      • St. Louis Center Fielder Jim Edmonds: I think we shocked the world.
