Here's what Willie Stargell had to say about Madlock in "The Greatest Team of All Time" (Copyright 1994).
"Madlock wins Stargell's endorsement as the most underrated player of his era. 'The man won batting championships and was a great clutch hitter. He was also a leader in the clubhouse, although a lot of front office people never liked him because he always said what was on his mind.'"
“There can be no higher law in journalism than to tell the truth and to shame the devil.” – Walter Lippmann
"Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian; black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet." -Conan the Barbarian
