I hope to play for the Red Sox a long time.
I don't like losing at anything. Why should I?
When I play videogames I'm trying to go deep every pitch. I'm definitely not going to try to do that in real life. In the (video)game I'm trying to leave the yard.
I just show up to the yard, work hard, and play as hard as I can.
I put the blinders on and just work as hard as I can, and hopefully I'll just continue to be a better player.
Next year I want to be better than this season, and the year after that, better than the year before.
I hang in there all the time. I'm not afraid to be taken out. I think that's the biggest thing to do-just stay in there on the double play.
I go out and break my leg next year and can't play ever again, I got 40 million dollars. Nothing's guaranteed in this world, except that 40 million dollars.
People always ask me if I wish I were bigger. I tell them no. I always wanted to be a miniature badass.
I don' really care what people think. I don't really have to prove anything to anybody. I just have to prove stuff to my teammates.
I'm going to go out there and be who I am, and if you don't like it, then watch somebody else.
Just because somebody swings one way and I swing another way doesn't mean he's better than me or I'm better than him ... Does my swing get hits? Yes.
I just try to see the ball and hit it. If I get a hit, I get a hit. If I get out, I get out. There's no secret about it.
