You've Got to Be Kidding
A-Gon Hits 3-Run Homer in First At-Bat with Dodgers
"Only two pitches and Adrian Gonzalez was already illustrating the vision the Dodgers had when they inherited $260 million in salary commitments to acquire him from the Boston Red Sox.
Gonzalez redirected an inside fastball from Josh Johnson inside the right-field foul pole for a three-run home run, and the same fans who were on their feet when he first stepped into the batter's box were standing again, only this time they roared even louder." -- Dylan Hernandez, Los Angeles Times
Tangled Up in Blue
"Everything I ever did was for the sake of winning and I think everybody in the clubhouse knows that. The way things were spun is unfortunate, but I guess, looking back, there are a couple things; well, one thing, that I shouldn't have done." -- Adrian Gonzalez, admitting that sending that text to John Henry, sorry, having Kelly Shoppach send that text to John Henry, was the wrong thing to do
"I had an awesome time in Boston. I had some tough times. There are some great people there. For me, I think it was time to move on and start this new chapter." -- Josh Beckett, Dodger
