Potent quotables: Lowell sums up loss to Yanks

Aug 22, 2009, 10:18 AM EDT

“I think that it was plain and simple that we got our asses kicked pretty good.”



- Mike Lowell just about sums up
the 20-11 trouncing the Red Sox experienced at the hand of the Yankees
on Friday night. The Bombers have now won five straight over their
division rivals and sit 7 1/2 games ahead in the American League East.




“He called me in the office, I was in the lineup and he just went over
the whole waiver thing with me because I guess a lot of people in the
media were speculating a lot of different things and he wanted to clear
that up. So I asked him after that, well, if you pull
me back and you’re keeping me from going to a contending team, what’s
my future? And basically I got a maybe, maybe not. And that’s basically
not much of a future.”




- Gary Sheffield explains a conversation he had with general manager Omar Minaya on Thursday. The 40-year-old outfielder denies asking for a contract extension, as reported in various media outlets.



“To me, an ace is not something that floats. It’s career
numbers stuff, to have that dominating pitcher year in and year out.
It’s an overused term.”




- Despite a 2.94 ERA since July, Randy Wolf deflects any talk about him as the staff ace.
He may never be an ace, but he’d be a decent cleanup hitter for the
Dodgers right now. After knocking in three runs with a homer, double
and single against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, Wolf drove in the only
two runs of Friday’s victory over the Cubs.




“I didn’t know I was like that. That would be a first for me.”



- Derek Jeter responds to comments made by Hall of Famer Jim Rice earlier this week.

    Lowell better get used to it cause the redsuks are gonna get beat up some more by the Yanks because they are not even in the Yankees class this season so get used to it!

    No-one is in the Yankees class. Even the Sox are some $80,000,000 short. Money doesn’t guarantee a title, though they try year after year.
