Usual requests were getting in the AT&T text line and looking for DNA from Sussman. They're asking if we don't usually get that I can I promote low for you and you ought to 510 minutes -- unique fiber cement. Told him module. Six separate -- that's up nine ST you know -- fifteen -- seven 37. I write your idea of the direction elbow politics he -- professional dollars a that it scratch or use that word. You know. Figure out the secret do you think that the with the St. Louis Rams. Against the San Francisco forty. Of bowl games. And actually Saint Louis got screwed in the first overtime game they should want is terrible call an -- so let's put up 4050 yards. In the first game 339. Yards in the second and regrettable overtime games. -- Yardage in those that's a Bradford but they really haven't faced. Good quarterback. They got Aaron Rodgers in the first game -- if -- remember -- -- remember that offensive line look like for the Green Bay Packers. In the first game it was hall -- bad it would hurt real bad. And against that 48 editing on -- and not just the 49ers community. How bad -- -- against the other thought they were bad for the for four for the -- -- I was embarrassed who applied Christian Ponder. They got Mark Sanchez. They get Fitzpatrick Eli Manning beat them 26 history. I lit up the defense. They got Russell Wilson they barely won 1913 the sex and campers can. Do you can't do because I don't quarterback some I don't seems a talk about what format but. This is not this is not a little bit of a different look for the San Francisco 49 -- sum up put it down Michael terrific. 49 defense and I'm I'm they may be the best in in the NF. But what they seen anywhere close to what they're going to see Sunday night to operate on Bob Brady is playing his game. Well listen most teams don't mean to say that about. Every defense in the league. You'd never see anything like it if you think Tom Brady had problems -- -- -- -- the point is if you think about Tom Brady is the best quarterback in the league. Then nobody ever sees -- -- guy like Tom Brady. Supplying. Peyton Manning. So. Yeah it is going to be. To be a little different for them to be praising Tom Brady as opposed to whatever I -- the Arizona Cardinals but not the airport. Drew Brees put out there aren't when he won on 3121 was the final and that its rat. Has been a guy that said the most success against that the front. That's been the extent. Of quarterbacks their -- air -- Jim in a car here and a picture on WEEI hello Jim. And guys. On. They're good area I agree with you glad on the right side and that's right now they're eighty wouldn't even when I don't understand it. Concern analysts now believe that in the past -- all the -- box and they went out. -- a look -- Adams and look to. Julio Lugo all property and if it's a nation I have at that either hurt or suck like Leo look oh how Procter and I also feel that they haven't taken advantage of market with respect pitching. That's a problem now I don't looked a -- ever gone out artists I like Italian -- sure. Not so much Sanchez but -- coalition and beauty traits like Gavin Floyd just the Burma that's starting rotation that I'm not convinced that -- the John Lackey he can beat you you you know what he had when he is at the angels and be ready for. -- give you the number of innings that you need from from John like -- that's one thing he's always been able. You -- pass for the first year back in May be fine in 2014. But first our first year back from Tommy John. Is using one of those years that you can't text the -- too much next year they see many times you stronger. You your armor stronger than it was before -- -- but let's not give them credit they apparently made a move. For Cliff -- They were willing to absorb in you know three years and 85 million actually cut about a 110 million the only way it would be 110 million. Is he reached all of the incentives so you wouldn't mind that is that means he would be good for. If you get a look -- -- 110 but they weren't willing to make that move they obviously. Are trying to find ways to improve the -- I'm just. Not sure there are a lot of answers for them right now. Because they have put themselves into this hole they keep on changing up what they wanna be every couple years when he urged defense Dexter is up make up your mind. What do you wanna be what your identity. Mean -- tell anyone about Tampa Bay they have an identity. They don't have an awful lot of money they develop young pitching right and they are challenged when it comes to going out and get the bat and they think they solve this this year. By getting a guy who they believe it's gonna be the next big bumper in Major League Baseball on what might resonate deeply unhappy they charged atmosphere that is. I respect what they've done to protect. Too often that's your example and haven't -- and why Michael because they. Don't have the role I don't really want to Red Sox -- one of the largest Iraq comment really on fire and they failure yeah. They'll be fine if if the point wasn't to win championships. At the point wasn't to chase actually went OK fine. So I'll give them. They won't they they lack money then I'll give -- much money might attempt. At sixty million dollars they would be great let's let's give a pattern ahead and make them champions for everybody who's spent fifty million dollars -- -- -- so they are the champions they are. The low budget champs I'll give it to home. -- hold them up. As an example of everything that's right baseball. Field they have but they have a system Michael -- -- -- great end to what to do what is -- get creative here they can't get that big -- through free agency but keep on bringing back the -- news of the world -- is that can't afford those guys so what they did is they gave up what they have been able to develop. So they give away one of their stuff starting five why because they've got a 6789. Within the support they -- little. I would think they don't. -- that I -- they do I think they're right and they went and got more pitching -- that they can replace them. And they get a guy who they believe will be the next big hitter in Major League Baseball. How did they have a plan. What's the Red Sox win. The Red Sox -- Bart back and that's an apple. Yes yes. I think immediately asked -- I'm gonna go see you know Bart and remembering bought two expert with me because they look. That's part of -- yeah any problems that talked to -- and what -- -- -- -- and I mean I. -- executive. -- -- -- -- -- You know you don't want don't get it that think about this in all fairness to -- Daniel boy. If you get the opportunities to. And you look at what's starters are getting in the open market so that if you're pretty good starter for 23 seasons forget it if you're good start for one year. You get the free agency. What are you end up get 6700. Million dollars part 47 million dollars is as a -- just got right now. Or are you -- eighth inning guy. Where does the ceiling is warning half million bucks a year I don't play. Why why not that's what he wants to do and obviously it didn't work out warm but I don't blame him for wanting to do -- the Red Sox. That was a solution to a whole they have the starting rotation here it was not gonna cost them an awful lot of money yes but and what they'll. Thought it was good I do it -- -- is that welcomed. I rarely asked this but that Dexter who wrote that Josh Hamilton doesn't have impressive numbers just street. What is your right back in time which commit because the detector a while ago sent to get about the personal problems. That Hamilton has. I'm not impressed with his numbers. So does look at that I know we had a slump last year got off to a great start he tailed off but he still finished last year of 43 home -- 120 RBIs. 354 on base 577 slugging. The year before. 536 slugging gear before that 633 year before that he was hurt you for that 530 fun. He's a slugger strikes out a lot. -- -- as analysts I don't see. What's not to be impressed about I. Think the only thing that you could look at its not impressive he's he said one year 156. Games and other Matty says the 89133. Once we want. 148 that's the only okay and that's -- got tired us out disasters hero that's not disasters. Com hit a lot of strikeouts in 2012. Didn't have nearly. As as many believe the previous years but -- lot this past year. I 61777. Ninth and ID 37 -- -- --
