When they got behind three games to none, I was thinking 'Here we go again
But when they won the third game I started to believe.
The celebratory spirit in Boston is unbelievable, ... But Boston being Boston, the fans aren't really happy unless they have something to complain about, and lately that's been Schilling.
I think the Red Sox chances will all come down to how well he pitches in the playoffs, ... I don't think they can win without him close to 100 percent.
I consider it an honor and a privilege to be here today, ... I'm also involved with Special Olympics and the Jimmy Fund, which is the Red Sox charity.
I'm a six-handicap but those two holes scare me every time
It's not just Palmeiro but a lot of these guys have put up numbers that border on the obscene, ... And when you think they've done it illegally when so many guys did it the right way, it's hard to stomach.
I don't know what's going to happen with these guys down the road when they become eligible for the Hall of Fame, ... But I know a lot of Hall of Famers don't think what they did was right, and I'm one of them.
I knew it was gonna go out, ... It was just a question of it being fair or foul. The wind must have carried it 15 feet toward the foul pole. I just stood there and watched. I didn't want to miss seeing it go out.
There was no player I enjoyed playing against more than Kirby. He brought such joy to the game. He elevated the play of everyone around him.
It's funny. Some people remember that a lot more than I do. I remember certain parts of it, and if everybody who mentioned that to me had been to the game who said they were at the game, there'd be 800,000 people at that game, I think.
I always looked up there, because I remember a time when the only things on the walls in Fenway were the Jimmy Fund sign and the retired numbers. Never in a million years did you think you'd ever be up there with those guys.
The '70s were a time of turmoil and turnover. But I grew up here. I always wanted to play here.
