David Ortiz Says Whoever Has Insisted Red Sox Haven’t Been Feeling Pressure Lately ‘Is Lying’

The Red Sox have struggled throughout September, which has allowed the Rays and Angels to hang around in the American League wild-card race. And while the Sox have remained confident throughout it all, David Ortiz admits that pressure is part of the game.

"Whoever has told you that we haven't been feeling pressure these past three weeks is lying," Ortiz said. "Because that's part of the game, that's part of what's going on…That's why this game's so good, because the pressure's right there, right? You've got to learn how to deal with it."

To hear what else Ortiz had to say, as well as whether NESN's Tom Caron and Dennis Eckersley think players should show more intensity on the field, check out the video above.
