    • Statement about the Boston Red Sox being just "idiots" out to rewrite history.

If we use our brains, we're only hurting the team.
    • Interview (24 October 2004)
  • We all pulled together at the right time, unfortunately, we were down 3-0 to the Yankees when we decided to do it, but we did it. And we shocked the world.
