Quote of the day: 'Our infield sucks'

0 Comments

“Our infield
sucks. It’s the worst in the game. I’m not lying about that. That is
true. It took a bad hop and I just tried to put my body in front of it
to get an out…”




“…That stuff
upsets me. My job is to take 1,000 ground balls a day, and other guys’
job is to get the field perfect so we can play baseball. It happens.
That’s the way it goes.”




– Dustin Pedroia thinks he had a real chance for an inning-ending double-play
on a Kendry Morales groundball in the top of the eighth inning. The
ball took a wicked hop, forcing Pedroia to dive. By the time he reached
his feet, his only play was first base. Juan Rivera followed with a
two-out, two-run single off Jonathan
Papelbon. The two runs proved critical as the Angels went on to score
three in the top of the ninth, taking the lead and ending the Red Sox
season.
