Don Zimmer quotes of the day
On managing the 1978 Sox: "When we were 14 games in front, I knew we weren't 14 games better than the Yankees. Everything went right for us and everything went wrong for them. So when we got close, to me, it was like, 'This is more like it.'"
On sharing the thrill of the chase as senior advisor for the Rays: "It was fun going to the park every day, a full house, everybody second-guessing you. That's the game. That's the thrill of the game. And I hope that someday the young players here can be in that situation and see how that feels."e_SClBTonight: Raysvs. Red Sox
