"It would have been a lot more interesting if we could have held them down in the eighth." -- 8.5.06, Terry Francona on the horrendous Hansen outing

"`In my [David Ortiz's] situation, I think when I go out there, sometimes you have to flip a coin. Sometimes, I'm OK, sometimes I [stink]. I guess tonight was a night I [stunk]. It was a ball I've got to catch. It was a ball I tried to throw before I caught the ball, and it got me in trouble. Bad decision, I guess. I was trying to do my best. I can't do too much over there. It can't be all fantasy." -- 8.5.06, David Ortiz on his Big play in the field
