Hot stove show in 937 WEEI -- -- and Alex beer Ian Browne in this field and what's the word out. Well I'm hoping that the word is Bradford not poolside downsize at. It was like I. Am I'm in the middle of a sudden -- despite -- aren't really any. -- in the middle throws it right into the over the OK fine I sit in this field in. Blank -- ran he's been amazing. Again and again I could've said not a not a fill in -- is now Bradford is basically right now. Joining us in the AT&T hotline is Wally Pip him back. -- -- -- -- out here too now. Now we talked to Mike Hayes and rob and he said and and then listen it's not like you spent company money but the idea that your lounging by the pool day. Is Mike he's until he saw you today is I think encouraging news for people who want to baseball. Well Alex you know -- music. As our group at guard -- it was just hockey that would that would not poolside and take pictures of them accused Miley Cyrus. Well you got to play. Well if you really -- -- little blue sport has already got bullets with any any big updates from the Boris summit. Know a lot of guys do that I mechanical break away from that also invited you don't be shocked to find out that it. He thinks that having a premier closer on the team is one of the most important in baseball. -- -- bit quicker -- be at Bryant as Rafael Soriano on the market so yeah it's it's a lot of us. Same thing here it was -- -- we all know that was one of the things it in the winter -- you look forward to the one time Scott Boras in February like Basra. Is he wearing blue jeans. Blue sports it. Always uniform. Rob I'm curious one thing that we've heard almost nothing about with regards to the Red Sox Ian and I and and Kirk -- sometimes referred to. We're talking at the beginning there's been so little conversation about Zack Greinke with -- a berth with relationship to the Red Sox you rule out any Red Sox interest and Greinke. They have an idea idea because I would rule out in trapped in the I vaguely defined as we've gone back. Every single year the CC sabathia AJ Burnett you gotta eat couldn't keep you lay out this the reds aren't. Cotton -- in their representatives. And ours are believed to commit I really do that was everybody. Buy it would Greinke I just don't via for a lot of reasons that I heard guys talk about. The mentality and not being fit to that market the -- that commitment for years that you talk about a guy. Couldn't interrupt you -- the lack of its or lack of where they were here about PP it's create Greinke. Josh get open and like I think -- paddle ball. Because a qualifying offer but where they're wait until tomorrow night to see who would have to call on offers and a mechanical there. Rob with -- he reported earlier that the Red Sox -- against strong interest he said. Isn't strong enough to be willing to go more than one year you think. That's a tricky -- they got so big that it -- gamble and and I think it thirtieth that -- sixty million that you target out to people and thirteen point pretty good right. Yeah I didn't think that that's our preference is to make you overpay on that one year a little bit -- taking the gamble would view it -- even though he's been really really -- I didn't contrasting dynamic I think because the took a -- I'm just saying. The Red Sox might have the upper hand on the Yankees because of the payroll constraints to a certain extent college years. -- -- it still has yet you don't wanna be a lot and something correlate because of what your payroll that. Probably a bit of the planet does any truth to these says these rumors with the Indians for. As I think it was John Palmer -- mentioned that -- -- -- they're looking at you and Masterson is there is substance there you know what sort of the -- -- We're all -- coincidentally you know cricket -- that you -- won by a couple right next because it'll out. Fired CE kind of downplayed the rumors and said you know these rumors have come up. Over the course of the year and that you respect and bill I don't think that they've. It is part of legitimate being trapped in Masterson mentioned a little bit different because you're talking about -- bright -- contract. But back I don't without the realm of possibility that they've talked about something like this because it. Would -- threats like the it makes sense in terms of -- Rob banks go back to doing what you don't pitches abort Oregon tonight we have for tomorrow -- any force report. I think there are bigger and bigger and this Kuroda actually Gary talks right now that you guys in the bullpen coach -- Josh -- Joshua Tree. On us tomorrow will be yeah about it. Thank rob Bradford join -- kind of the join us.
