I didn't supply the players that would give us enough runs [in 2017]. I think we do need that. That's part of our offseason goal.feedback

We need to score more runs. Now, some of that has to come internal. When you start looking at some of our guys, some of them didn't have as good -- I don't think -- of offensive years as they're capable of having. But we do have probably the open spot at first base-slash-DH, and so that's a place, we'll try to create some offense there.” said Dave Dombrowski on this article: Could Giancarlo Stanton land in Boston?

If you had painted that scenario, I don't think that's one that we would've felt great about. There are a lot of things that the club has overcome. But you have to tip your cap to guys that have stepped up. Other people have done a really good job. Good leadership helps between John and the coaching staff. But I can't say you would've sat here and said, I really love that scenario,' by any means.feedback

Do I think sign stealing is wrong? No, I don't. I guess everybody in the game has been involved with it throughout the years. People are trying to win however they can. It's an edge they are trying to gain. I guess it depends how you do it, but no, I never thought it was wrong.feedback

Sep 05 2017

I never felt like [sign stealing] is wrong. Put it this way: I was never brought up that it was wrong.feedback

Sep 05 2017

We probably do something wrong every once in a while. I've had my wrist slapped a few times throughout my career. Not just with the Red Sox. Sure, we do things wrong at times.feedback

Sep 05 2017

I'm not going to get into the specifics of that. I really don't have any additional comment.feedback

Sep 05 2017

I've been involved in different things and I've talked to other general managers, and I know that [the Yankees] have been involved in those things, too. I'm not really sure why [it was handled this way]. Everybody has to do what they think is the right thing to do.feedback

Sep 01 2017

Yeah, he's really pitching well. He knows how to pitch. He's really very similar to what he was then.feedback

Aug 31 2017

It's interesting. Your stomach churns, but this is what you really want it to be all about.feedback

Aug 31 2017

This is more of a club that wins in other ways, too. We win a lot of close games, we run the bases well, we'll steal a base, make a lot of contact. Hopefully, if we get there, we'll be successful. But the reality is that all the clubs that end up playing are really good.feedback

Aug 31 2017

We have a guy in Chris Sale who's really good, and I think we're in the top two in the league in E.R.A., starting and bullpen. We're a really athletic club. So it's a different type of team for me. Normally when I've been associated with a really good club, that 3-4-5 in the middle are guys that just crush the ball. This is not that type of team.feedback

Aug 31 2017

It's not like I'm sad that they're breaking the team up now, because it's a couple of years down the road and there's a lot of new people. But I was saddened that we didn't win it. I thought we had a good enough club when we were there, and we were good for an extended period, and never did. There's certain clubs that never won championships, and you say, Gee, I can't believe they didn't win a championship.' Seattle was like that for a while. But that's why it's so tough to win it, and that's why it makes it so rewarding when you do.feedback

Aug 31 2017

If I told you that Chad Ogea was going to beat Kevin Brown twice in the World Series and we're still going to win, you'd say, There's no way. So that's why, when you get into short series, anything can happen. You grind it out. You just never can tell.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I think there were a couple of factors: First of all, he had a spectacular year and we had a great year. The other thing attached to it was that, as I recollect, there wasn't a clear-cut positional player that was also in the MVP conversation. I think that's part of the situation when we start talking about it, how that evolves.feedback

Aug 03 2017

Yeah, I think the Golden State Warriors have significantly made some moves. I expected it. I would've been surprised if they didn't. I don't know how they'll lose a game right now.feedback

Jul 31 2017

I don't know how they'll lose a game right now.feedback

Jul 26 2017

We haven't made our decision what we're going to do yet.feedback

Jul 23 2017

Our people said, Well, why would you try that [trade]? Why don't you try him? He's in a position. We think he can do it. The request for some of the guys that would be minimally better for us have been very large, and so we think that he gives us as good a chance as anybody we've had a chance to acquire -- for third base.feedback

Jul 15 2017

My dad's a big baseball fan, he follows us, and he said, Gosh, it looks like you really need a setup guy. And I said, I'm not sure why we need a setup man.' I said, Dad, Joe Kelly hasn't given up a run in 2 1/2 months. [Last Sunday] was the first run he's given up in 2 1/2 months, and now all of a sudden, we need a setup guy.' Again, can you get better? Yes. I don't think it's a glaring need for us. We'll keep an open mind.feedback

Jul 14 2017

I think we've come together as a club. We started to play better here over the last month, six weeks. We've put ourselves in a position where we control our own destiny, which is always good.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I think sometimes you have to give guys an opportunity before you just jump to the conclusions right away. And we'll continue to monitor his situation. It's up to him to do well and we'll see what takes place.feedback

Jun 20 2017

Third base has been one area I think we still need a spot to kind of see how Pablo plays through this. Starting in spring training, he did very well for us. We were very excited. And I think you also have to remember that Pablo has done everything that we asked him to do. He got himself in shape, he's worked very hard. He's continued to work hard. He's worked on the dietary aspect of it. He's worked on the skill aspect of it.feedback

Jun 06 2017

I do not believe we need to hit more home runs. Have never emphasized having to hit a home run. Need to get more doubles and hits with men on base. We have been doing that more often lately.feedback

Jun 05 2017

We would not anticipate having anything until [Tuesday].feedback

May 29 2017

We could have gotten an MRI here and had people read it, but he just knows the [doctors] there so well. He wanted to do that, so we said, Sure, we'll fly you there and get the MRI done there.feedback

May 29 2017

He's played almost every day. He's had to deal with a lot of things, which is very unfortunate, but he battles through it.feedback

May 17 2017

He's got an edge to him, a good edge. His teammates love him.feedback

May 12 2017

Devers has done great. We like him a lot. He's having a great season. He's in Double-A at 20 years old right now. We're happy where he is right now.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Any time you survive in your job for an extended period, part of it has to be not only your ability, but your ability to communicate with your ownership. That has to be an extremely important part of the equation.feedback

Mar 30 2017

You're not going to replace David Ortiz with one person, that's what we thought. So we really went about it trying to look at: How could we collectively do that?feedback

Mar 21 2017

It was more that, when we had a chance to get Chris Sale, we would get Chris Sale, because we thought that he would make any rotation better. And we would not have anticipated David getting hurt, but you know that anything could happen. We did have five solid starters, but we just felt if you could add another guy who was a No. 1-type starter to Porcello and Price, guys who were 200-plus-inning guys, it gives you some depth – and depth with ability. To me, if you're going to have a chance to win, there's not a better way to do that.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Timing is important. What organizations might be doing, as far as making a decision that they might be willing to rebuild and trade a guy, that doesn't happen all the time.feedback

Mar 04 2017

Anytime you have any of your guys with a sore elbow, even if you're hopeful, it's a relief when you hear that news, sure. He'll take his medication and in a week to 10 days, it's up to him. I heard in his briefing over there that if he felt today instead of how he felt a couple of days ago, he wouldn't have said anything. The doctor said we're not going to put a time frame on it. We haven't even discussed that. We've been careful not to get into that. That's not the most important part. The most important part is to get him throwing again.feedback

Mar 03 2017

You're concerned any time any of your pitchers have a sore elbow. To what extent, at this point, we'll have to wait until the doctors see him. But you never like to see a guy step down no matter what, as far as missing any time is concerned. But we'll wait and we'll see, because we just don't have enough information at this point.feedback

Mar 02 2017

They just happen to be set up in the same place in a very short time period, which would be convenient if we could get him in to see them. Any time you have someone like [Price], you're going to be cautious. He said it's not significantly different to him, but we just don't want to take any chances.feedback

Mar 02 2017

No, I don't [regret that trade]. That's just the timing. You're not going to just hold on to somebody in case things take place later on.feedback

Feb 10 2017

We won a lot. I wish we would have won the ultimate world championship for him. He loved the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan and its fans.feedback

Feb 10 2017

He has a good feel for sports, baseball in particular, and that's always good when you're working for someone like that.feedback

Dec 20 2016

It's always part of the overall equation, not a real driving force for us. It fell into play here very well for us. It also creates some flexibility for us as we go forward.feedback

Dec 20 2016

We had seven established big league starters. We felt like we had some depth there. The deal that made the most sense was Clay.feedback

Dec 08 2016

They usually don't like when you make it $1.feedback

Dec 06 2016

I think we're open to free agency and I think we're also open to making trades.feedback

Dec 06 2016

The ability to get a Chris Sale doesn't come along very often.feedback

Dec 06 2016

We're trying to win now, as you can see.feedback

Dec 06 2016

Do I think a player could be a two-way player? Yeah, it could happen. Is it very difficult? Yes. But I'm not saying that there's not a player out there that can't do that because some of them are rare, rare guys. Babe Ruth could do it. He was pretty good.feedback

Dec 06 2016

If you're going to get good players you have to give up good players and it hurts. When you have a chance to win you go for it, you go for it. You really need to go for it when you can, when you think you have a legitimate chance to win.feedback

Dec 06 2016

We feel it gives us a chance to win now.feedback
