The difference between him and [David Ross] was maturity. Ross picked his spots. ... Willy is so young and eager that sometimes it gets him in trouble, but more times than not, it benefits us. It not only shortens those guys up on the bases, it doesn't allow them to get the jumps they normally

Kind of like a young Pudge [Ivan Rodriguez] back in the day. Just throw to throw. It gives our infielders that extra split-second to turn that double play or do whatever. It shortens guys up. ... When guys are second-guessing themselves, it's an advantage for us. It's little things like that that make us all

Baseball has been played for over 100 years the exact same way and now we're trying to change everything and make it soft. That's baseball, man. We're out there playing with a bunch of pansies right now. I'm over this damn slide rule and replaying if it's too far and all this other B.S. We're grown men out

You can't tell people -- they have to experience it. I feel like the guys that are brought up through the system handle it better than free-agent guys because it is a culture shock. You go in there and it is 162 single-game seasons. Every game is Game 7 of the World Series and that's how they look at it. It's awesome because it makes you accountable day in and day out. It's a good place to teach you accountability. I wouldn't change anything about it. I enjoyed the hell out of my time

What people outside of Boston don't realize is, yeah, the Patriots are good, the Celtics are good and the Bruins are good, but when it comes down to it, it's a Red Sox town.

What some people still don't understand is he pitched broke for two years. He grinded his butt off to get out there and pitch, got his butt kicked a lot and finally went and got surgery and came back and was the John Lackey we knew.

Apr 01 2017

I think our guys are ready to turn the page and move on to this year. We'd like to do it again. And then also not forgetting the previous year, NLCS was pretty solid also. So that's two years in a row we traveled deeply into the postseason. I don't think we think that way for the best way to describe it. I'd be surprised if – that's not saying we're going to kill it or somebody's not going to beat us, that's not my point. I just think we're going to go into it with the right

Oct 12 2016
