“In Boston, there is always a novel — in here they never talk about baseball; it’s always the same. That’s one of the reasons why I almost never talk to the press here. Very few times they ask me about baseball. But most of the time it’s about gossip, rumors, plots, well … a soap opera. When they talk to me about baseball, I’m available. But that does not happen often.“
–Adrian Gonzalez on the Boston media.
