Adrian Gonzalez made it clear that he liked his new home in Los Angeles when he homered in his first at-bat as a Dodger on Saturday. On Sunday, Gonzalez told the LA Times' Dylan Hernandez that the Boston media didn't take to his calm demeanor.
"I won't throw my helmet, I won't scream, I won't use bad words if I strike out. That's what they want over there," Gonzalez said of the Boston media.
"I was the same person in San Diego. They took me over there and I didn't change. My intensity, how I prepared, everything was the same. When they took me over there, they took me over there to drive in runs. And I did that."
Gonzalez also said that he never thought about wanting to leave Boston and that his happiness on the West coast had nothing to do with leaving Boston.
