Trying to bounce back

Papi275.jpgWe came out here in the past and were able to take Game 1 from these guys, but that’s not how it’s going to be this time. They had a great pitching performance this time. John Lackey was on. He made good pitches. What can you do?

You play to win, especially in a short series, so we’re not going to change our mindset just because of one loss. Just because you lose a game, you can’t change anything. You want to come the next day with the same mentality, ready to go, and let it happen.

When you have pitching like Jon Lester and Lackey going against each other, you know that it’s usually just going to be one mistake that’s going to be the difference and change the whole game. Too bad that the mistake from Lester was against one of their best hitters. I know Torii Hunter, I know him well. We’re close friends, and we played together in Minnesota and I know how he is. He was fired up and when he’s fired up, look out.

We had a little bit of a layoff coming into Game 1. There were no games in three days. I’m not going to make excuses, but I hate layoffs.  That’s how it goes sometimes this time of year. You’ve got to get used to it.

I didn’t have a good night at the plate, but Lackey was making nasty pitches. They don’t want to make a mistake to me, you know that. They pitched me real carefully. That’s how it is. When good pitchers pitch in that kind of game, they want to make sure they stay on top of their game.

We’re excited to get out there again for Game 2. We have Josh Beckett. You can’t ask for much more than that. Everyone knows what he’s done in October. He’s been pitching great and we need a quality start out there.



    I know what you mean about layoffs David, it’s sometimes tough to play pretty much everyday, turn it off for 3 days, then turning it back on again. Lackey was very nasty last night, Lester was too though. Hunter is a great hitter, so you have to give credit where credit is due. On the pitch Torii hit out, Lester did leave it out high and over the plate. That’s why every pitch in the playoffs is so crucial. Pitchers have to be so perfect with their deliveries, and one pitch can really hurt you. I know you guys will bounce back tonight with Beckett on the mound. Your lineup is too talented to held with no runs for long. I see you guys tying this series up 1-1 tonight. Good luck David, we all support you here in boston!!


    We believe in you Papi and in Beckett. We know you both have amazing talent and heart. The Red Sox nation is with you and our great team. I will be rooting for you in CT tonight!


    Hit that field….play your game Red Sox style……and meet you at fenway Sunday afternoon!! The place is ready to rock with the best guys in baseball!! Let’s go!!


    We are behind you all. Hear your fans in the stands. We rejoice with the wins, feel badly for all players when you lose. But all in all, the real fans remain regardless. Play on!

We’re lucky to have two #1 guys in Beckett and Lester, reminds me of Pedro and schilling.
