Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Dale Arnold Steve Buckley here and I I guess I have just. I have blown your mines. I didn't mean to but the -- you you guys just. Either you refuse to believe it or you -- OK we'll watch the game if I have an Internet connection. From my house that's funny because I I got a tweet here at at dale. And it says so it's is technically you can watch the game on line if you pay for MLB network I panelists and when I'm on the wrong no he he. There will be no cameras on tonight there will be telecast to show you online on MLB network. Texture here I heard you can watch tonight's game on ESPN three dot com no you can't. I mean I know you guys don't believe me on this -- there is no telecast there will be no cameras on the only cameras that will be you get highlights. You know you bid double local TV news's it's not like 45 and seven gonna send camera crews out there cause they're not. But they'll they'll pay for the local ABC NBC CBS affiliates fox affiliates to shoot highlights you'll see highlights. If Josh Beckett twirls a perfect game tonight you'll never get -- it. So I and I said. It is sad. You get they are targeting and I don't know if you noticed you probably -- notices dale but that Beckett he's doing okay lately is ever -- This is -- this he's in that he's gonna stretch right now we're throwing the ball as well as I've ever seen in the base -- -- a stretch right now we throw the ball better than it was -- -- -- And Manny was really good then too but instead that -- -- got that. That's there need to see mostly Claudia yes I did when he mark in in the -- dugout out here -- I'm an idiot that's the kind of attitude you want from Josh Beckett. Now you will it is here tonight on Sports Radio. Nuclear generation able Brian joke instantly on they'll bring you all the action -- here all of it. Considerate you know a throwback game OK you know if they wear throwback uniforms those god awful uniforms they were denied him -- -- Those were even I didn't like those dale. -- But consider this throwback night okay back in the day before games were on TV and you'd you'd sit there you know with a transistor radio under your blankets. You know sneaking in trying to listen -- the game can Coleman telling you what the Red Sox were doing a considerate a throwback night and in Major League Baseball tonight listen.

Now here's a good question I hadn't -- I hadn't thought about this one techsters says about TV replay for home runs. There won't be any height they will not be able to use TV replays for home runs tonight. Because it's one of those weird strange instances where there will be no cameras to show -- So if there's a controversial. Home run where where Beck is gonna win his perfect game. On -- ninth inning home run by Jacoby Ellsbury it is ruled owl but it's really fair you're gonna lose our right it's just gonna happen. That's sorry it's what just occurred to me that when they have the pregame meeting of the umpires. In the minutes at home plate -- it has to be stated there will be no. You cute kid mom asked for replay review. Is that we know there -- no mechanism in place there will be no cameras to show you re all full. If if the manager wants to come -- talent equality can make an announcement anyway had a cellphone. On that plate I'm not gonna not run it down by police for pass your cellphone the -- bring your Apple iPhone or get out a section two employees fuel heating oil is cellphones I'd be the only way they could do but I guess if I Davidson Concord hello David how -- There -- -- it's gonna. So. Getty you're it was the -- -- aren't no game can be televised live in the history in the act that can start at 6 o'clock will be televised. They get it today at it in fact in in Major League Baseball no game can even be played on Sunday night it's the only reason they're playing the game tonight in Detroit. Is because it's the Red Sox last trip to Detroit the Saturday game got rained out there's no. -- choices where they play a doubleheader today where they play the Thursday after the all star game. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And they did televised vote I didn't -- double I don't like that right as tickets shouldn't it every -- Saturday that. Mom didn't you know what I think Simmons -- eyes and you're correct. And you can that's an excellent point you could start again knowing or in LA and play the game at 8 o'clock in it to be televised. -- it before sex if you that port that it goes into -- out. You can amateur hour in Atlantic eight and the dot the first at aren't temporary good and still tell it again I believe that would be correct. And I don't know again the political Accardo experiences built -- 1 game at 4 o'clock or until six. Yeah and then also need to salaries are we get to the sounds like we'll George -- thing what -- what if god made a rock so big in the we -- Now this can't at a course I have to. I don't know the millions hidden cameras whatsoever. I'm just saying that they they don't have -- they wanna -- their because I televise the game. I didn't so you might not all right thing out so the leak. -- had a bench clearing brawl again that's nobody is the route to replay that basically approach you recite it should be suspended as you realistic don't feel better right. I would say probably not unless I am not there they could use news camera footage you know if if the local you know Foxit -- were. There excelling at that moment. And so -- and can't do like to a game and then do they are into it now. Well played tomorrow about it.

It was seen you mean it makes sense -- Wakefield in the rotation for two reasons number -- is pitching well too. And number two you don't get a whole lot of bang for your buck with him in the bullpen where is the seven as. You take him out of the rotation put him in the bullpen he immediately straight into bullpen. Do you think they'll. Yeah that they'll yeah I think it Savvis is a better bullpen options and Wakefield what are what are you could do but lacy Kessler ruled it. Mom well this is a guy that the mildly it may be in his head and -- I haven't talked to him I've been a Red Sox game intrigued because of -- the Bruins but. You rent you remember in the minors this guy -- considerable trouble getting the stuff over the -- minister he was like Colfax as a rookie you know on the ball the backstop. And it it it may be in again I'm just guessing. It may be no more complicated then he's got himself back into some bad habits that he had to rid himself off when he was in the mightily.
