I’ve got zero to contend about him. There are some things that we would like to say, though I’m not going to. You guys forget flattering conveniently about stuff.”
Made wakeful of Lackey’s remarks before yesterday’s game, Cruz said, “When we go to ballparks and kick other teams they are not going to be happy regardless of what we do. What we caring about is what my teammates consider about me and what my fans consider about me. . . . Everybody is giveaway to talk. What we caring about is what I’m doing here. You can’t go and confront everybody who talks, we know? My indicate is to go and play tough and try to get hits for a team.”
Said O’s manager Buck Showalter, saying’ players should “check your possess behind yard’ before accusing others,” a potential anxiety to David Ortiz’ organisation with PED use in 2003.
