Bronson Arroyo
It was disappointing. I love being a baseball player. I love the city. I loved being a Red Sox. But it's a business. They do what they do to benefit the team.

Manny is a strange guy. Outward, he's happy-go-lucky. On the inside, he's got a lot of conspiracy theories going on. Obviously, Manny might be one of those guys when he's 50 years old he might be in his house with all the blinds shut and looking out and the CIA is after him. You don't know, man. You don't know what's going on his head.

We're definitely close, probably as close as you get to a GM as a player but it's a business. It doesn't matter how you feel personally about somebody. You've got to make the best move. It's like playing a chess match. You're just pieces on a freaking board, that's what players are in this business. It doesn't matter how much they like you.

It was an 0-2 fastball. I was trying to go up around his neck at the middle of the plate. I missed and left it chest high on the outer half.

Facing the Yankees 19 times a year, that lineup is so power packed -- even the eight hole and nine hole sometimes. It's tough to pitch to. It's mentally wearing on you as the game goes on. For me to be over here in the National League, just to have the pitcher in the nine hole, gives me a little bit of breathing room. I don't think there's any lineup in the National League that can compare with that one. For me, it feels like it's easier to get over the hump.

I don't think a lot of decisions rested on just Theo's shoulders, ... I think a lot of people were involved in having a roundtable discussion and having different ideas, so I don't think it will change all that much. Obviously it's going to hurt some because of the relationship he had with the players.

Back in eighth grade, I remember going to school with a Mohawk and Ozzie Smith's name carved into the side of my head, and no one said anything to me. When I heard about it, I thought it was unfortunate that he got sent home, but it was also funny because he was trying to have his hair like me.

It's nice to have that familiarity, knowing how you should be looking and how you should be throwing the ball. I personally enjoy a pitching coach who's very laid back, very hands off for the most part, unless you have a problem.

I gave up four runs, but it was on two home runs, two mistake pitches. Really, other than that, they didn?t hit the ball that hard. I just tried to stay focused. It?s been like that for us for a while. The starting pitching hasn?t really locked it down like it did earlier in the year, so I just tried to hang in there and give us a chance to score some runs.

I enjoyed having him around. I think he brought a lot of honesty to the table as a GM and also, he's kind of closer to our age group, so it was easy to communicate with him. The door was always open. People always say that, but it's hard, a lot of times, when you have a big gap in age. A lot of times people aren't as friendly in front offices, it can be more like a principal-student thing. With Theo, you always felt like you were on the same level as him.

It's funny, ... it's almost like Theo is such a friendly guy, so much like on of his peers, I think he went above and beyond so people (thought) he wasn't 'one of the guys.'
