"We have made the baseball development decision that we've been contemplating for a while to go back to one team, presumably higher-quality players for only one team. Consequently we released 14 players today in addition." (Stan Kasten, via Nationals Journal, 2/26/2009)
"I feel bad, really bad." (Carlos Daniel Alvarez Lugo, via Washington Post, 2/26/2009)
