Quote of the Day
Robin on the Sox’s veteran presence taking the current losing streak in stride:
“Nobody likes losing a game, they’re tough games. But they’ve been through the long season before and you can’t start heading down that road looking at the negative…that’s part of the discipline in baseball, to be able to put stuff behind you and keep grinding every day and thinking about today instead of down the road or three days ago.”
