"A lot of work’s gone into it. I was down. Anybody would be down. Nobody wants to go out there and give up runs and put your team in a losing situation. That’s where the work comes in. The Red Sox stuck with me. They could have given up on me a lot quicker. I do appreciate that. -- Buchholz on bouncing back

"There’s things with teammates, players and playing for this team and the fans that like me, but I don’t think there’s ideal situations a lot of the time. You kind of know as a player when you’re in the last year of your deal, so you know it’s going one way or another. So you’ve got to prepare yourself mentally that that could happen." -- Kevin Youkilis to Michael Silverman
