Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. said he's "going to go all Marshawn Lynch" with the media this year.
At last week's Super Bowl Media Day, NFL running back Marshawn Lynch answered every question from the media with a variation of, "I'm here so I don't get fined."
Lynch was fined $100,000 earlier in the season for not cooperating with the media and gave the stock answer to fulfill his media obligation. He has had several other interviews since being fined where he gave a stock answer to all questions.
"I just focus on me. I have to do what I've got to do. I don't even talk about it to anybody,” Bradley told WEEI.com. "Action speaks louder than words, and that's pretty much this whole year is going to be. I won't have much to say. I'm just going to go out there and take care of business."
In 127 games for the Red Sox last season, Bradley hit .198 with one home run, 30 RBI and eight stolen bases. The 24-year-old said he's "in a good place" heading into spring training.
"Action, not words. Words are gone now this year. Put up or shut up," he said.
