Alex Bregman defends comments about wanting to beat Boston
Alex Bregman recently expressed how badly he wants to beat the Boston Red Sox this upcoming season, which makes sense given that they won the World Series and defeated the Houston Astros along the way. But, for some reason, the star third baseman feels the need to defend himself over the remarks.
While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Bregman said he found it “crazy” how his commentary about wanting to beat the Red Sox went viral.
Alex Bregman on his Boston comments: “I’d say 99.9% of people playing competitive sports want to beat the team that beat them. I don’t think that’s anything outof the ordinary. Crazy how you say stuff now and it gets blown up, especially when you say it on a comedy podcast.”

Bregman spoke about the subject on the “Going Deep with Chad and JT” podcast. What people really found noteworthy was that he said he wants to end Boston’s reign of terror after the New England Patriots won yet another Super Bowl just months after the Red Sox won the World Series. Had he just said he wanted to exact revenge on the Red Sox, the reaction probably would have been a bit different.
Remember, Bregman is the guy who trolled a Red Sox pitcher during the ALCS last year. That was before that same pitcher dominated his team and the Astros lost the series 4-1. Because of that, anything he says about Boston is probably going to make headlines.
