This is from JaYson (sorry Chuck) Stark’s column, and I think it is both eloquent and selfless:
MARTÍN MALDONADO: “It’s about winning the game. That’s all. As long as we win the game, the result doesn’t matter. It’s about winning. The World Series is about winning. It’s not about a player or an achievement, or about player recognition or anything like that. The World Series is about winning. It’s about, ‘Give me as many innings as you can. Give us a chance to win.’”
In this era of I and ME, the Astros emphasize team.
