We met this morning to look back on the 2011 season and to consider the future of the Boston Red Sox, including my involvement with the club. I passed along my frustrations at my inability to effectively reach the players. After many conversations and much consideration, I ultimately felt…
“This team I think became challenging at the end. I remember a day in Toronto, it was after the game we won I think 14-0, and I ended up having a meeting. Not even sure if anybody knew. Because there were some things I was worried about. I thought we were spending too much energy on things that weren’t putting our best foot forward toward winning. And we spent a few minutes in the clubhouse that day talking about that. There were some things that did concern me. Teams normally, as the season progresses, there’s events that make you care about each other, and this club, it didn’t always happen as much as I wanted it to. And I was frustrated by that.”—Tito on the team’s character/chemistry.
does it work for you? I have Verizon in NY and it works for like 5 minutes and then shuts down. It probably works really well for AT&T bc they are the big sponsor for WEEI and Im guessing you have AT&T if you live in Cali
I’m actually using an iPod Touch, so it’s just connected to my house WiFi (which is not AT&T). It’s working really well. :)
4:23 p.m: He also did have an interesting sentence within there as well. On the players in the clubhouse: “I have a ton of respect for almost of them.”
4:16 p.m.: Also, as we try to keep up with everything is said, Francona spoke to something of a lack of chemistry in the clubhouse. He did stress that while everyone isn’t always going to like everyone, there still needs to be a bond on the field.
“I’m devastated. I’m heartbroken. To play hard for 161 games like we have and have it end like this. … It should not have gone down to the last game of the season to decide if we were going to the postseason.”—Dustin Pedroia (via outtathepahk)
