Koskie koskie postponed big balls -- that soft all of those things I and -- and lots of disappoint you -- a really nice person now I don't know. And I can't admit that got its. -- well I'm really disappointed most recently I would say or keeps up but no idea when Brady and Wes Welker did not connect on the that was in the that going to be one of those things after the top this -- an -- Yeah a weakened like -- my high school teams. Those rooting for ball undefeated -- -- -- this past week. This past weekend that was a tough one yeah I always think as a kid. When they lost the 75. World's leaders I cry yeah I cried yet so disappointing. And I couldn't sleep I lay in bed and said god why did you let us win one of those deals. It was called it was just seven game opposite feeling from the fiscal run the fiscal mums the big high and yet the next game real downer in the long rain out. Yes 33 days see it was a long -- process in your heart really and and that was when you know before. Boston fans longed for Boston and got so spoiled. That when they know they have lost the console -- next year you know like the patriots. Lose to the giants' season and they said they'll be back in suitable yes XT yeah those days there was a long drought just they just didn't win and win anything I mean. In -- the Bruins won in 170. And 72. But. And then the Red Sox had -- and if you -- this since 1918 no patriots were generally the laughing stock graphics are good -- out. Celtics won in ends the year before against but you know they were expected to win the Red Sox to a special was something they lost 778 yeah. 78 on -- -- -- up yes popped up medals made the catch. I was in school and let us watch films like -- went -- school in the in the weight room. It was like the feeling was. They will never ever win it can't happen won't apps in a painful it was frustrating and it. It's it's so long ago the ping has -- I think is that is more -- more acute pain. The eight you know season that ended with a -- that's up giant -- that's got to be a sense and you know why it's more painful if you're you're younger little younger Paul. I mean -- mean Mo call our Reynolds a lot come would not compare because. Eighteen MO was awesome softness CDS an event every week and an eighteen and -- came. A bad thing a negative -- yes there were eighteen at all and did and didn't win at all you remembered that the it's like the ultimate favorite the ultimate even though the point spread -- -- -- -- the highest it was an undefeated team that it -- ask for much of the year. And when you lose in the super bully them by Woodward's three points. It makes all that just just. Not only worthless but more important and what makes it even worse I was up that school and Syracuse at the time in the frozen cold waste land that is sent to new York and everyone all of a sudden became a giants fan I only had this crappy little patriots jacket that did not keep me warm at all that I had to Wear it every single class war for three months ago crap from everybody not just guys that Eagles fans. Were piling on -- fans prominently that there was no threes. It was real shot and Freud in that one because the patriots and run to score every week they got caught in -- videotape right all that. And then they took the revenge on the lead India's rule people and they became on the bully. And I think the with the giants. And they won before the New York. They were America's team yes yes and people I would be enjoyed that if I were Lebanon you know. Anywhere elsewhere and the Moines Iowa Paducah I would be sand. Oh you know I don't wanna see how voice of that or you know some other team Packers go when AT you know -- and knock them off their. What percentage of the United States was rooting against the patriots. Not complete the season we know the Miami Dolphins were right out today. I'm 170 or so far worse -- -- slightly more than 23 a weasel I don't think I mean I like they are capable team if you weren't around here. They still are patriots. Mean they've won so much -- to -- -- politics. In there when you think about it when you're younger the good behavior. These two teams won't mean cowboys yeah you know yankees Negroponte Pittsburgh so much he was always -- to -- materials. -- write -- -- and Pittsburgh well they aren't capable people. Mean like Chuck -- was eating all of its available people not compared to -- it means job creators yet at LC Greenwood I don't know I think I made some Jack Lambert I love -- he wants I would object well. I love Jack Lambert. I I and I didn't hate LC Greenwood Ernie Holmes and hate them. Think America hated them yeah they were politics. -- them because they want Lynn Swann Dan Jenkins famously wrote a line and -- in this resonated with a lot of people when they. Played the Minnesota Vikings in the Super Bowl. I think the score was sixteen to six and the vikings had like sixteen total yards of offense kicked two field goals. Dan Jenkins wrote about the game and said I knew. The night before that this was going to be an absolute wipe out I visited both hotels that was back in the day when. Media can actually go to the team motel right -- and not have security stop you and he said the Minnesota Vikings hotel was buttoned up. Church. Every door was locked every light was off every -- was -- there was no players to knock them. Is -- to the fourth floor and there in this week. LC Greenwood mean -- green. Jack -- The it was Ernie Holmes and a bunch of the guys sit around drinking gin and tonic black musica -- I -- at that point who's gonna win the game tomorrow. -- there were awesome. They were awesome watched him every week in and I was an -- -- -- were great defense that a lot of personality and even publish as did the cowboys managed to be hated team if you don't don't win -- I don't win it's true that it and people still hate the cowboys even on haven't won since 94. And and even know. They don't have that many cable guys they it the owners of polarizing yes he has fans are able -- -- as well as April it's like with the Eagles. I don't care who's on the Eagles I hate them because their fans are a just and he noxious people we've we -- right with them down and Jacksonville. And yeah I was there.

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.
