David Ortiz: "You always go through these times every year and then we start playing better. We've got to hang tight and go home and win some games. There's nothing you can do but hang in there."
The road is getting rougher, there won't be any smooth pavement for dozens and dozens of miles, but we never get off the bus. Never even consider it. ... Not even when the toilet backs up, the AC quits, our head is pounding, and the sweaty guy next to us starts eating his lunch with his mouth open and humming. ... Homicidal thoughts come and go, and return. We consider leaping out of the window. ... A couple of people got off a few hours back, and we shook our heads in pity. ... We're riding this bus to the very end.
The driver will get us there.
