Red Sox player on John Farrell: "He's a hell of a pitching coach, but did you see Toronto play this year? They were as lost as we were. ... Losing [Jose Bautista] was like us losing David [Ortiz], but they didn't gut their team at the deadline (and still finished only four games ahead of the Sox). And what happened to their pitching staff? Isn't that [Farrell's] strength? He can't make 'em make the pitch, but isn't that the expectation here? Whatever. ... I'm pretty sure those guys were in more of a hurry to end the season than we were. Did you see how fast they went in the [expletive]? That was a step backward."

It's Their Kind of Party: Jason Aldean Signed for 2013

"Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester, and a bunch of other guys I hang out with... Your Boston Red Sox right here... I love this city can I move here after?... I just want to move here and hang out with these guys, that's it. We'll all be old and retired by then, that's all right. We'll just go to the Cask & Flagon and drink a lot of beer with you guys before they go, how 'bout that?" -- Country singer Jason Aldean, June 5, 2011 at the Comcast Center
