Gomes Wanting to Give Everyone In Championship City a Ring

"That Marathon Monday... that was something that I've never been a part of. We obviously have deaths in your family, deaths in your... something, tragedy like that... An explosive, a bomb, something so selfish an act, not only to Boston but on America and then we're supposed to be the strong legs, strong back to carry everyone and put smiles on everyone's faces but like I was saying, I think it's the other way around. I think we jumped on Boston's back. They wouldn't let us quit. They wouldn't let us lay it down. I mean obviously it happened right on the finish line, so you would think in your head let's not go to the baseball game, something bad might happen there, too. Nope, even more people came, threw up Boston Strong on the Green Monster and we just rolled, so if everyone in Boston could get a ring, they deserve one too." -- Jonny Gomes on Conan

"I've played with a lot of superstars but I've never been around a superstar who cared more about winning than David. He could go 0-for-4, but if we win the game, he's the happiest man in the room." -- Red Sox catcher David Ross
