Here's the quote of the off-season so far, from new Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes, on his role with the 2013 Sox (courtesy of Pete Abraham):
"How does a big machine run? A big machine runs with a lot of grease. You
get a tall building with all kinds of fancy windows. It’s that
foundation that keeps that building up. I always say I represent the
grease that runs the machine, not the machine. I represent the
foundation, not the star at the top."
Got a feeling Mr. Gomes should be good for a colorful quote or two during the 2013 season.
And ready or not, the Winter Meetings kick off in Nashville tomorrow.
