RoyCoup Sports Press — We work our back sides off early so we can go play when it’s time to play.

RoyCoup Sports Press– What we like to see is guys go out there and pump strikes in the zone, consistently pump strikes in the zone. And I think he did that. I thought he established command of the zone with his fastball and was able to expand the zone late in the count because of that. Again, it’s early, but we’re real pleased with how things went today and we’re encouraged by the results.
I felt good. I felt good out there today. I worked on a few things, threw some pitches in situations I wouldn’t normally throw them in. You know, again, this is still spring training. I’m getting where I need to be, you know? Things are progressing as they should. Just go out there, get my work in and build up my pitch count to be ready for opening day.
Today signals the start of spring training for the Boston Red Sox and, as other teams begin their spring training work-outs, the 2012 baseball season has officially gotten under way. So, in that spirit, I thought I would kick off the festivities with another Daily Sports Cliche: Spring Training Edition (Boston Red Sox).
Can we change what happened last year? Absolutely not. But can we learn from our mistakes? Yeah, I feel we can. But after today, I don’t want to talk about what happened last year. That’s in the past. I want to focus on 2012, because I feel like we still have a good team capable of winning the World Series. I can’t change what happened in 2011. The fans had a right to be angry, but let’s focus on 2012. I’m anxious to show our fans what we can do. We’ve got a real good team here.
While we’re on the Red Sox, can the Boston writers please just shut the fuck up about last year? Seriously, leave it in the past where it belongs and grow up. I really hope we don’t have to continue to hear their fucking doggerel once the season starts. Harrumph.
