"I don't think I pitched as bad as the linescore says." -- um, yeah, you did Jon Lester

"Wow... this team is a complete failure in my mind. No bats, no heart, no personality, no resiliency, no timely hitting, soft manager, soft ownership, soft GM. Not to mention we're getting absolutely drilled by HUNGRY TEAMS. TEAMS with so much camradarie that they clear the bases in defense on their new Right Fielder on a pitch over his head. I've never been more disappointed in this organization and it's leadership in a LONG time." -- e-mail from Jimmy, who's not happy with the team
