"If we would have pitched better, none of that stuff would have been an issue. It shouldnít be an issue anyways, because what goes on in the clubhouse should stay in the clubhouse. I donít care who says that or whatever. Iím not saying we donít make mistakes in the clubhouseÖ What goes on in the clubhouse, itís supposed to stay in the clubhouse." -- Josh Beckett, not exactly accountable or contrite

A Tale of Two Youks ...

Youk in October: "When things like this happen, in a town like this that is so passionate about their baseball, they want answers. And sometimes there is no answer for it. And we can sit around and make up as much stories as you want and say it was this, it was that, this person did this..." -- Kevin Youkilis before everyone else fessed up

Youk in January: "[The Red Sox] didnít have the best vibe in the clubhouse... It was very different. It was noticeable early, but when you win, winning heals all the wounds. But we definitely didnít have the right attitude in a lot of ways. We were worrying about things that we shouldnít have been worrying about and not playing the game of baseball." -- Kevin Youkilis after everyone else fessed up
