"Who says we can't reel off 25 wins in September? If you feel like you're defeated by losing a series, that's not the right attitude to have." -- Victor Martinez, the new face of the franchise

"He [Drew] said to me in the [ninth], he goes, I don’t know if I can finish this game. I said, look at the scorecard, you have to. We already put a pitcher in to run. That’s all we had to do was put somebody out there in right - like a circus. So we’re trying to take care of him for a couple days.’’ -- Terry Francona, taking Drew out via the media, so he's seriously sick of this, and he wants you to know
