Big Papi: Sox more improved than Yanks

The Yankees play the Red Sox Friday and David Ortiz thinks the Red Sox, who added Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford, made more improvements over the winter.

``It finally seems like the Red Sox made better moves this offseason than the Yankees," he told espnboston.com. ``It's always the Yankees who are doing the good moves -- I mean, not always, but pretty much since I've been here…The Yankees always found a way to get --- done. I don't know how they do it.

``Their players always pass that around, that the Yankees are the best team to play for, this and that and blah, blah, blah," Ortiz continued. ``That's why there are a lot of players who want to go there and see what's up, and then they come out with the same communication. Why? I don't know….I asked Alex [Rodriguez] and Johnny [Damon], `Hey, how do you like it over there?' They say, 'Oh, man, it's awesome. It's top of the line.' You ask the next player, and they come out with the same thing. Alex has said, 'Dude, there is no better team to play for than this.' Johnny said the same thing."
