Dustin Pedroia is upset over the way he feels the Red Sox are playing baseball right now.
The second baseman had some harsh words for his teammates after Friday night's 10-3 loss to the Yankees, accusing them of going through the motions at the plate.
"The first 100 games have been [lousy]. I mean, two games under .500? We're the Boston Red Sox," Pedroia said. "If anyone's thrilled about where we're at, we need to re-evaluate because I don't like losing. I know everyone else doesn't like losing. We've got to play better, man.
"We've got to play good, man. That's the bottom line. We have great players, we just have to play good. That's it. We didn't. Their guys did. Late in the game they extended themselves from us. That's what great teams do.
"We didn't do anything. Our at-bats later in the game were not good. Swinging early in the count. I mean, heck, if their eighth-inning guy is going to come in the game let's at least get 25, 30 pitches so maybe he can't pitch tomorrow, you know? Do something productive and we're not doing that. That's a sign of not a winning team. Those are the little things we need to do better."
