Quote to note

"They're huge. If they pitch like they're capable, it makes it easier on everybody else. They're going to be asked to shoulder a huge load. They're going to match up against the other teams' two best pitchers. The deeper they get into games, it gives us a better chance to win."
--Francona, on Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez
