Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

-- that -- of the field right now talk to him out Jonny Gomes joins us from the field -- do we have it there yeah I got -- hey thanks for being with us -- we really appreciate it one of the great things about tonight. If you're gonna get a second look at the pitcher in the way your team has been throughout this whole post season. Whether it's getting a second look at a guy in the game or getting a second look because it takes second game against him you've been so much more effective. Why is that how does that work for you. I think to explain I guess you'll just have to go the resonate these players and set a club house. The veterans you know if you will they know how important that is in a game in a series on to make adjustments and at this point you know game 56 and seven. Like he can go back to the Detroit series ruling. I was under the -- got -- And about twice and Verlander twice. So basically now. You can't really highlight delete what happened in the past you know with Wainwright. But you know now is it true it's a race to adjustments where he got a hit off somewhere that you walked off from -- and he has our report to. But you always got to continue to play you know killed thirteen Sox baseball and you know live and die with our plan you know goddess as far as we're continuing -- John you know your home run last night was huge help wondering what you're thinking as you approach to play. What was going to be your game plan -- going going in against a rookie pitcher famous. Com we'll get several as a rookie you know right now as far as you know facing each other for the first time. But you know stepping -- says there's not too many unhittable pitches in the game and if there is one it's probably a ball. So saying now you can kind of throw out all the reports of what a guy can't can't hit because. You know naming game is getting a mistake and put -- mistaken play. You know majors and power seekers in any -- -- a couple power seekers. When I was just looking for him to elevate one. And I guy and you know I take a lot of pride you know individually you know what he had back in front of me and behind me. I don't think I have you know the stature in the resonated detect protecting you know -- Ortiz but you know last night -- -- my task and I had to do it and then when I saw him. You know basically unintentional intentional -- you know I don't wanna be a pushover by any means so. You know I -- Through my heart helmet on and get to work. That where your back out there again protective mr. Ortiz and a little more length behind it would did you find view and Zander Bogart's. Seems though -- this guys -- for eleven and it's not easy they've worked he's he's doing right now and he's going to be wondered if -- good you pitch to. Com yeah you know I tell you what though that -- like you said this on a -- and you know I mean you know one thing you can guarantee is you know Pedroia Els and on and get up in the first inning. I'm with me hidden behind him in the foregoing you know your your four points and you know I'd be the first or second any. But outside of that you know we we can turn this line up over pretty quick you know -- Bogart and -- Rossi. So. You know upon doing a heck of -- job unbelievable offense touched off of you know carrying us right now. But you know this team doesn't sit back and wait upon -- three run homer a Grand Slam -- get on -- and we've got a ways away. Is not how to go back a bit too -- the start of the post season or even the start of the ALCS. And during the regular season. Other roles were pretty defined between you and Daniel -- and John -- similar guy. I'm not necessarily going by the book your Jonny Gomes as some intangibles that you can't ignore look at our record. When he starts a putting event there and we've talked to John about how he explained that gag about a how explain that to you and where were you surprised by. Com. Not look too far into Vietnam a player I'm not a fan here you know although I have to do is get ready. You know reduce my number's called. You know we wouldn't have gotten here without gaining knowledge you know 300 average you know those RBIs and homers he hit. You -- any good defense as well. You know these games are extremely important right now but we wouldn't have gotten to these games without you know the work that we did -- wants to -- you. You know what you -- says how deep this organization is now. No important all 25 guys aren't team and you know there's no one person more important -- next and you know just a lot of in -- success we've had. You know -- obviously they buckles was did you performance fired some -- to -- it fired me up because apparently. What's -- -- in north we go back to back -- walked in that levels for the game yesterday told the of his. You tell John I can go seven and that got me pretty fired up here so -- bet on him but it probably does it surprise you with this team. No it doesn't. -- seems -- every time you turn a corner and you see John Farrell there's a player in uniform in his -- I mean. These pictures one about weed out these pictures -- -- -- I mean you know John Lackey obviously doing he had the last night Jake Peavy won in the game. You know these guys don't negate the in the game to be heroes they wanna be in the game to you know help this ballclub win. And you know it just goes to will be no talk about before that he doesn't just baseball junkies and it was a pretty hostile environment here -- a big stage in the World Series we're we're most comfortable in the -- on the mound you know your positions that he's going to get out there. Well your team has been incredibly level headed all yearlong you don't get too high you don't get too low in yet. To lose the lead dating game three I know there were some players that were upset afterwards was it any more of a challenge to get yourself back into into. Game mode for yesterday. I mean it could be you know but I think that goes -- character and identity revealed during the season. When you look you know we're the only ballclub -- baseball bat in the sport gains in the world. This teams teams and -- good job of cleaning the slate what you reviews double doors here Arnold win or loss. And you know I'm always preach you know thinking thinking bad it's just like eating bad you know -- -- you do it you know all day every day. -- season on the area healthy lifestyle. And get a door waited and I go our way I don't know you know but we we clean the -- you saw how we can play the extent. We -- very poorly today we have to rid us to dole says Saint Louis we as a bridge is halo you like ten pounds since there are advantages crazy. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Beyond legendary now fourteen speech. By the dugout what was your take on it. Com you know I do it you know people talk about that and I mean that happens all the time to take pictures coming from I mean he. Not only does he have a presence you know when he throws 34 season and he has a presence when he's in the box you're the president when he Washington's double doors as a present to dinner. You know. With that being said what when this guy opens his mouth you know. I mean knowledge is coming hours knowledge easily roll your eyes shrugged shoulders. The -- -- have a tough time -- if you're fortunate to hit with him in the cage if you're fortunate enough to have. You know -- locker -- with him dinner on the bus on the plane. I mean this -- just you know truly preaching baseball and wants the best at every morning. And you know there there's a little -- -- -- -- the game before work we work to Jun thirteen Sox who we play aggressive we played extremely play rambunctious. You know we go on extreme things over here you know to a -- when your success and it seems like we just kind of had our feet in the mud. And leave -- to -- you know to. Point just -- -- accountability that we need to have. You're really pushing pond -- and that's that is the nickname did you run for David Ortiz. Cooperstown like -- there woman we really appreciate it we'll let you go in finish get ready for the game tonight your bat cleanup. -- protecting David Ortiz protecting Cooperstown.
