What a special night. This team is a family, and what we have done is a family accomplishment. I can’t say enough about the way this team has responded to adversity all year. Every time we have something go wrong, this team seems to pull closer together. The Red Sox are a great team — we respect them a great deal — so to win a Game 7 against them is a real accomplishment. But we are a team that has been counted out a lot this season. Every time that happens, watch out.
We still have work to do in the World Series, so we’ll celebrate this together, because we are a family. We’ll rest a little bit on Monday, spend time with our families, then get back after it Tuesday.
What a thrill it was to be down on that field tonight after the game with all of our fans cheering us on. All of our fans really mean a lot to us. They are great and we respond to them being there. The World Series is right there in front of us, and it should be fun. This is what you dream about as a kid. Don’t wake me up.
