Bobby Valentine, on Kevin Youkilis:
I don’t think he’s as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason.
Kevin Youkilis, on Bobby Valentine, on Kevin Youkilis:
I’m more confused than anything, because I think everyone knows I go out and play the game as hard as I can. That’s just my style of play. I never was blessed with the raw tools … so I’ve always had to use playing the game as hard and with full effort my whole life. I don’t know any better, so that’s just the way I play.
Dustin Pedroia, on Bobby Valentine, on Keving Youkilis:
I know that Youk plays as hard as anybody I’ve ever seen in my life. I have his back, and his teammates have his back. We know how hard he plays. I don’t really understand what Bobby’s trying to do. But that’s really not the way we go about our stuff here. I’m sure he’ll figure that out soon.
