I feel great, ready to go. ... I haven't talked to Tito about [playing fewer games in the spring]. I don't think that's necessary. ... I've taken ground balls, turned double plays, run the bases. I've done everything. I'm ready to go.On Carl Crawford:
I've worked with Carl for three or four years (in Arizona). I put some whuppings on him in ping-pong and talked a lot of trash to him. ... It's a pain in the butt playing against him. ... It's going to be fun having him on our side.On Terry Francona referring to him as actor Giovanni Ribisi because he has let his hair grow in:
I don't know what Tito's starting. He's a tool. He poured water on himself today to pretend he was working out. He didn't do shit. I might kick his ass before we get started. ... I'm a grown-ass man now. I think it looks solid. My wife likes it.
