Quote of the Day

“It’s not for me right now. That’s something that might intrigue me in the future.  I like being on the field more than in an office — but it’s just not something I’m ready to do at this point. The time commitment for a manager is greater than it is for a player, which is something people don’t realize. The time isn’t something I’m willing to give up right now.”

-Mike Lowell on managing in MLB.

“There were a lot of emotions going through my this week. A lot of memories today, especially from the fans and stadium itself that I’ve had over the last five years. That really made me appreciate even more all the support I’ve had throughout my rehab process. I’m really grateful and want to express my gratitude towards everyone that has supported me along the way.”

-Daisuke Matsuzaka on his return to the Red Sox.

Quote of the Day

“I try always not to be surprised, but I’m surprised at just how ‘Pedroia’ he is, more than I even expected, in every aspect — preparation, competitiveness, ability, his banter.  I thought he had everything, and he’s more of everything. I’m very impressed, and they say I haven’t seen anything yet.’’

-Bobby Valentine on Dustin Pedroia.

Quote of the Day

 

“It felt real good.  Most of all, I’m happy we won the game. I know things are going to turn around for me. I’m working hard. I’ve been feeling good at the plate, but just haven’t been getting results. It feels good to get rewarded with a home run, but the main thing is getting something positive going and really keeping the same approach and give my team a quality at-bat. It’s a long season, a humbling game. Hopefully this gets me going.’’

 

-Darnell McDonald on his three run homer last night.

Quote of the Day

 

“I want to play every game.  I’m a first baseman, you know? How much effort do you really put out there? Not effort, but as far as how much energy do you really put out there? I don’t steal bases. I don’t run fast. I play first base. As long as my legs can take it, I’m good, and thank God up until now my legs have been good enough to take it.’’

FYI.  AGonz played 162 games in 2008.  He played 160 games in 2009 and 2010. 

Quote of the Day

Ridiculous. I’m capable of breaking down a righthanders swing as well as a lefthanders swing. That’s like saying you need two pitching coaches for lefties and righties, or two infield coaches for lefty throwers and righty throwers.

-Dave Magadan when asked if he agreed with Tim McCarver’s idea for teams to having two hitting coaches, one for righties and one for lefties.

“If you’re in New England and you’re sitting in the snow, there’s nothing better to watch than the palm trees, and what is a beautiful area here, and the thought that baseball at Fenway isn’t that far away.” -Don Orsillo
