Buckley: Questions About Errors Spark a Lugo Outburst

Someone Needs to Explain to Julio How It Works in Boston: ďI donít care, but sometimes it would be nice to say something positive,Ē he said. ďBut all the time itís negative things, you know? Sometimes, you know, people should say something thatís positive. But every time itís something negative . . . bring it up, bring it up, bring it up. Why? I understand you (the media) are going to write whatever you want . . . but I come here every day and bust my ass . . . if things donít work out sometimes, thatís the way itís going to be. You understand? But sometimes you bring up the same things . . . You get tired of that." -- 5.7.08, Julio Lugo to Steve Buckley, Boston Herald
