Will Pitching and Defense Be Enough to Win?

"'Pitching and defense, that's the whole name of the game,' new first baseman Kevin Youkilis said. 'If somebody throws a shutout, all you need is one run to win a ball game. Plain and simple.'"

"'The game of baseball is not how many runs you can put up. It can 2-1, it could be 20-1, it doesn't matter,' Youkilis said. 'That's the whole key, for us to pitch well, play defense and score the runs when we need to score the runs.'" -- 2.18.06, Sox open camp with improved pitching and defense
