"I've been working with my mechanics, man. I've been late, a little late with pitches, which is something that I normally don't do, and pitchers are taking advantage of it.

You want to make sure you get to the point where you like to be and where you need to be. It's the beginning of the season and you don't want to give up." -- Big Papi shows signs of life

"He's pretty special. I've played with some really good hitters and I don't think I've ever seen anyone that's as comfortable. It doesn't matter what the count is. He trusts his hands so much and that's what keeps him from swinging at those pitchers' pitches." -- Beckett on the amazing Youk
