So what are you what are you doing these days working out today and it's again. Yeah reactors -- every. You don't still villa. All right now come a long long way back but -- you know -- not repeat it thank. Injury but much licked get this retreating to pick on note he still going on this year but. Melodic and I'm excited.

All that's the Reagan William Bennett now rages in number and that's I I guess that's probably will be the best part of it is you've got two teams. That -- never been here before but I think it's difficult one of them but never 54 -- -- remembers that. On it's it's difficult to kind of root for either war against either one at least -- There are army and I are here -- -- -- -- giant storage -- that -- political Iraq. Well we're all -- -- don't have a lot of -- diet -- -- up the way at. There's like I'd bet a -- people occurred out of step up and the big situation corporate record a lot. Stories pretty amazing you just don't see once that happened in baseball you know. -- bounces back like that suddenly he's -- -- at a course -- the my hero Bengie Molina. Not because of this size though it did the president that's it that's an impressive I think you're the only person -- ever said that bush tonight here opens evil it's an impressive body you gotta give -- -- you know you know he works. Where I checked through an era I think I was bastard particularly at that it's a little. In the -- And tell you he works hard on the body but he can't lose in this deal. Because he got traded from San Francisco to Texas so he picks up a ring either way. And he probably picks up a fall World Series share of the why can't close. Yeah I don't -- -- situation you know and I have ever done for. -- -- Sure sure that -- ever done. It sounds rather than close to definitive and -- to understand this -- -- lesson number one on the radio this act like you know what you're talking about. A minute they'll become true. The.

He's a fascinating guy as as you guys know. Terrific player but a fascinating guy he's very funny. In -- very quick. And he's more interest in talking in the offseason causes rubble explain. It doesn't necessarily like to do a lot of radio during the course of the season we -- using it if you want to times during the course of the season the offseason he feels.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
