The quote

“Just because we didn’t trade for anybody? No. That’s not it. We just got beat in a game, and that’s part of it. That has nothing to do with yesterday or at (3 p.m.) today.” –Sox manager Robin Ventura on if his team was affected by the trade deadline

“The energy was there. Don’t mistake a loss like that like we were dead or we didn’t have energy. It’s there. That’s baseball, and it’s going to happen. It happens to the best teams and the best pitchers. The good ones shake that off and come back tomorrow ready to win and don’t drag that into the next day. That’s what we’re planning on doing.” --Sox designated hitter Adam LaRoche
