And yet listen it's been -- twenty years now when this thing here sit around talking trash. And got to take its. Love the stuff into an -- -- this -- Last October was my twentieth year. In sports. There's not a lot of filter what you got there. Now I mean it you are racing -- say it kind of guy I find it hard to believe that people don't like the truth. We speak. And we say well on our minds. I found out that 90% of the people in the world. Hate when you tell them reality they like to have it -- sunshine blown up the rear end where people will sit there and go oh yeah they'd like. Told what they want me here well when you look at some than I call myself -- observations. More than a sports talk guy I look at it I observe it and I see it with my eyes and my -- tell me -- then I'm gonna say it. And sometimes people don't like that and sometimes you -- you don't leave sometimes wrong -- yet but it. This is what I've been doing now for like -- -- for twenty years now went. When I look at sports today sports takes me away from nastiness that we saw it done in Newtown last month. I mean are from where you grew up now Mike got my dad lived in Newtown and went through that area played high school football against Ron Amadon down nets saint Mary him and I were down any FC act together. Played against him for four years it's a great place to live Fairfield County. And those Tony angels' money went away affected mean we were talking before we even. Went on here I never was more affected by anything in my life and that includes 9/11 I mean the next day I cried like a baby. When -- when I haven't -- like that since I was hit when I saw that in that home -- and done yet -- especially when it's around your area and the and the father. The monsignor Bob -- married my wife and I. So there were a lot of connections in that area there and the beautiful thing about sports economy is that release she get away from you know and you get a chance to do some things and talk about pass. Well public of people that the quick bumper sticker version of Oudin is now we're -- -- we do here. And we'll talk a lot obviously patriots dolphins -- the perfect guy. To discuss that with I grew up in Stamford Connecticut. The first guy ever out of that area to be drafted very high in in the NFL draft. That includes any -- was still to come and that it only and I don't know hall of Famer and -- -- around cold Allah so I mean like I've been involved in sports I mean.

Start dictating people doing things their way championship away and he's gonna go win there. Never done anything and he's gonna tell a guy like Kevin Youkilis out what you depict that piece of trash up off the ground and that's drastic. You're not gonna tell guys massage guys like that if you become a -- in the room. It's so that butted heads up that thing was gonna explode like that so I mean. But mentality -- them as Mets when he was the Rangers.

You went on to -- to play at the EU University of Miami cup championship teams there pot then -- year your eligibility ran out. You declared yourself pretty ancient. The NFL didn't take too kindly now. They sued me. And then I had a turnaround that suit them to get into the supplemental draft and that's supplemental draft. Brian Bosworth. And Chris Carter. Were in that same draft with me and pretty damn good supplement yeah well I was this out is this fifty player taken Bosworth was number one. I think Chris was a third or fourth rounder in that so out of Ohio State had some. You don't know what whatever round they take Q and you have to give up that pick in the next year's draft -- so they're not just gonna say a meticulous guy won this guy to disguise freebie is.

She understands problem yes and that's which turned around and turn them which goes to paint this. This is my week. And I like taking days off so -- ladies like OK we're going experience. I'm gonna be barreling down -- hill humbling Donna laughed my daughter next week. We did the I said you know we need we all know -- still got a bone crusher coming out. As overtake cubs don't go over it and where it is you helmet yeah. And although it did you -- about it this time where the mouthpiece the -- -- how -- the mouthpiece just thrown out on him there. We'll take very quick break ninety seconds only would get into and the rest of the stuff were reports called one of his players that. And I am guessing. OK with that will get -- all lets up but Celtics huge. Let's here's here's a little tidbit for you gambling folks out there and I don't gamble as you know but if I didn't gamble. I would never bet on a home team playing on Christmas Day because they open up the president's -- fat. Sorry -- -- -- -- saying that all get their doors are all off Brooklyn looks like they're not interest that. I think I probably witness something yeah that's true. And the heat. Mean your UC the mall yet. Can't root for them. I kind of wanted LeBron to get a championship ring a weird dichotomy there from now as you with the only one guy you know what I mean after the Celtics would -- -- I gotta tell you. I I gotta tell my my favorite player to -- during. I'd just -- the way he place. A -- perimeter game start to see 337. And five now instead of 33 to win one. Start revamped his game I dig the way he took Kobe -- school. Our last year's playoffs hit that. It's like watching LeBron I compare him with Chamberlain because he can play off by positions. Put us back to the glass. Asked in the facility saw what he did late night last magic in that regard because he's a bigger version of math and an Oscar. If you look at -- you can't compare him. Oscar could have played a five Nolan and this guy can't write this -- to write a spider -- Oscar can not done on the box and play by away magic could in a short stay and -- it and this guy -- -- did you -- what did against the 76ers you know we went 45 or whatever to close out that series against Philadelphia and six I mean he -- down when -- got hurt so. You're right he has more magic I said that when you watch him he is so dominate physically dominating he's not spectacular though. Like -- ones. He's not that -- got -- NJ -- my -- -- the -- -- enters the guided drove the lane and that later became the perimeter and -- And that's were elected with weight now he's trying to he's trying to get his game to being a perimeter shooter now because he can't drive the like yeast or like he did in 06. But again don't -- to meet Westbrook. Out of the two best dynamic duels in my opinion in Indian BA and the flash your dynamic duo. I say that I did kill all the time because I don't think -- so we get hurt last night little bits I mean I don't think he's consistent enough. Physically to be able to play 82 games like say. Westbrook and -- I'd love those two guys together. Member what it was like Walter Payton to a couple of times you throw up in your in your face Yasser -- People just turning on the radio -- hearing us talk so nicely about LeBron James just drawn up a little bit in their mouth is again ready yet for breakfast we'll take break silly I was here bone crusher. Winter is here as well we're in for DNC Sports Radio WE yeah.

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.
