I we have one -- 33 I suppose worrisome tweets from politely when I can get them -- me let me work on what you work on that I'll tell you what the last loans said. His third tweet was the most chilling quote. And it just ain't right. I'm not leave it at that no ill will towards no one I'm just sit here across from the arena with tears in my.

Which and lose more badly which -- worse it's the -- isn't it. Yeah yeah although I didn't register and a guy -- try not to be JaMarcus Russell you know just some stiff who just couldn't figure it out. So have permissions of the flash in the we need whenever the last adds up to elect go likely on straight past us banks. Mop and -- YMCA of. To fix our honey -- your thick of non quarterback more exciting players you've seen in the last generation. And on quarterback more exciting -- honey badger and then were Lou I guess I'm a public. -- met met and secondly. Do you think of any player anywhere on in the world that the patriots could use more than any of it and runs low eighties. And play making defense sabathia again -- makes plays although they would -- blitz that was specialty blitzing strip and the quarterbacks took second piece of -- out of our -- -- bill would say it will stay in our. Our base defense yeah. And abandoned but don't break but hopefully. He won't he's gonna go to -- -- -- no announcer next year. Probably not -- it -- you know luckily bill seen Joseph Lucas get -- -- the way that is of politic aspect though that Cuba. Mean is that -- Alonso and energy in the seventy off field issues yet and that's. Aaron Hernandez. Still -- -- there and silently he was smoke -- fourth round pick in a well run outlook had got look at the body look at it is tools and say. Out of 31 teams 32 actually let him slip to the fourth round it's almost as mind boggling as Brady. Just look at right and you say. Around everyone's kick themselves so I think money managers of patriot next puberty thing. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- third sixth when I mean small bodies yes ball and tough but it could certainly concerns would be. That he actually get worse not better when he gets into so what the national telephone or worse. It's worse Brady. Ago called the pros don't worst in in terms of his physical activity play the game just terms but -- ago. Stupid stuff don't think -- and then it's still smokes weed. And smoke. Before I was think that means. Here in your room smoke and we just enough trouble in real trouble -- a third room known as the real trouble. He's gonna smoke that was selling them -- -- at -- Jefferson. That was to have children the starting quarterback last year starting quarterback and how they got caught how it is yet this can we searched the place. And got to back up isn't sure go ahead. There or else I'll smoke weed and honey badgers apartment. And and the knock on the door. And it's the cops and the called the apartment because Jefferson when he came burst past somehow some way past security. Suite with. So don't wanna draw attention yourself at this point two Eagles and badge -- department and because he forced his way past security at the gate of the apartment. The cubs got called McCain -- on the door and they'll look -- the beginning which each shot movie was just an old dog and -- LSU but when you man yeah that was not a big deal. Cops didn't care. Mostly accurate. Having people like this year you've been -- Walked down story -- from all columns. And column. And the door and we shot that it wasn't. 1920s and right well no actually I -- it's -- well you know when I yeah I came are now after the. -- again here that they ban K eggs from the dorms. Before I got yeah and it was a really big deal like it was a big that you can't do that. And it was slick. Real controversy no more kegs -- the protests if he had to actually carry the case of beer in the room. And regatta in cans or bottles he couldn't bring a -- your Roman no it was like Nazi Germany -- So legally and champion and nice and make -- with a lot cakes exam you know like in in the well and -- -- do you get to be extant you know EU. Hold on to -- cake and somebody holds your eggs at any hair and the count how many gulps of -- today and what was your record your PB 37 o'clock a 37 gulf solid performance and come back up. How we know and now I don't want things that Jen has over a previous flash and all our. Meter couldn't be -- to capture that -- rum and Coke please let us I should put it on merit -- days cheap date 37 gulps them consistently chipped real content. Eighteen while he's also four times the size. At least and four times the size. You appeared Gene Lamont and the only guy on the team out of the new -- this -- bird that you might wanna hold all -- Just stick straight some about the body type genius someone who is 300 pounds jogging around the bases your inclination should be oh there -- not -- run the base I. I remembered spring training with the experts -- PM at. -- -- -- -- -- It is. Amazing that Gene Lamont years ago I wonder how urgently wants to rethink -- pregame comments that this out the Red Sox screwed up yeah. Now I'm not hiring Gene Lamont he doesn't exact cutoff we have this -- and under the bus -- all the rest and when it takes a picture perfect plate you're trying to start so you're trying to get them on. Fielder I'm kidding fielder is. Doug Mirabelli -- piece where Adrian Gonzales slow what does it feel that it would ask him like after the game -- if you lost fifty. -- escort and a you know -- out as many Romans now he -- is -- thanks in -- and work and so for Wright make 200 mile -- -- banker can I make 200 million of them start and in the World Series them. And cleanup here. What's gone wrong lol why is this what I'm doing here is not good enough that it is better to be better he could be but that's on August with -- anyways. His only super estimate James because I know to be like forty it's less than Pablo Sandoval lord. He's like 57. And swear to god ever since standout first ever and what it's -- first yeah. I mean -- the scandal show ever it is it is to outline how can go on first and looked out on come on Prince Fielder. It. 75 Amos and which means over 300 if there is a -- when it -- and -- a -- 510. Eagle 510595945. Doug -- 593 record sales at three bills what is the doctor tell him. When he goes is checked. They tell everyone to get lose even if you carry it well. I mean if you go to the doctor it was a man -- -- struggles and he relations lose fifteen -- a couple of windy triples when he asked the doctor missy 210. That would they -- -- they generally don't it feel like they used that your goal unit dropped right you can drop in the -- drop another but. Obviously no -- obviously didn't work and obviously if you put the pressure on Marcos grow you lose. The -- it was quick it was on the money is perfect and by the way if it's a little little left. Doesn't bust of posting like duck and hide and roll from that tank -- gun -- any curious -- season. He doesn't wanna get plowed over he gets in field -- wave that throws a little left. I think two things the giants lose the game and that was the catcher they used a bass player. If that for as little could be Jeter would it it would be devastating but it was perfect as is scooter row and school -- -- in on some -- the plan. Is a free form Friday it is a patriot Friday.

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.
