I'll give back your phone calls joining us on the eighteenth the hotline Donny Marshall Comcast sports net part of the broadcast last night with gear and wing company. In that post game would you agree Donny and encouraging. Loss is a former player you don't believe in that type thing. Or not I'm. Baltimore board you know it's actually when you look at other -- been depleted you know actually before that game at Miami looked -- it at Miami lost. If they played well I think they would say okay we were not happy losing what it could be much worse you know he you're -- you. It's not really that -- opposite on the game but for the Celtics. You know there are no moral victories obviously with the way that you see guys stepping up and playing. -- -- in particular you guys talk about Jeff Green you won't we waited for and this select ain't got up there. You know forty plus point but did the aggressive Jeff Green finishing around the basket that's collecting a lot. People didn't really know much bug -- that's what they were waiting for defeat that -- it absolutely it's encouraging. A retired what is too big games this year of 243 last night 31 in Phoenix. Both games without KG so it's nights which he needs to step up the hottest Doc Rivers say even with KG can still be that same player. A book and he started as well ago. You know those are games that I think agreed that I understand I don't I don't necessarily need to coach to tell me. You know you. We're gonna replace -- and you can score and give credence to get into promoting you know what. From what I understand you know last night in KG was at his -- as global for telling him to be -- He was. And it is -- going to be different obviously when KG comes back. He's not Carmelo by any means he's not one to take 20/20 but shot. And and it may make it easier for -- win KG comes back -- Obama wing player. I'd sort of authenticate ya know. Pentagon turned and looked admit it if they don't go double team when Katie is playing well they're still they still want to have the respect and that mean now. It's my opportunity my job. To cut to the -- to move without the quality he's such a great absurd that Jeff Green I think will. He was still get. That quality shot but I think it may be even easier for him but it's the look to get green to stay aggressive and not worry if you take -- shot. Not not apple apologized. Two KG you're not have to apologize to all I don't even think they expect that but I think it should in -- major. Could be very aware of his teammates and to be a great teammate but -- time you guys know it. A little -- -- you you have to be selfish for UT meaning you might have to. The shot you may have to take different risks when you're out there and that's how you electing gain the respect me and also let them know that okay I'm here to help you. And not just put everything on Paul and KG. Don't mess up big mismatch problem last night with Perry live web start with -- -- and -- on the court the same time looks like. -- just didn't have the got to kind of coverage yet so brings in the question. Does he start all the Brandon Bass even though is getting more minutes -- best should he startled him would you like him coming off the bench. You know I have -- I have me. I have a problem with with. Guys like Brandon Bass who work we're really struggling I feel bad for -- bats because he's got that you're not a contract and that it's it's every. At -- nightmare that is you know he's just got a brand new deal and and you struggle when you really really struggle. I think Brandon -- and the kind of -- you know with all due respect can -- -- -- have to -- him up any chance you can do it. But you also have to be aware of the coached. That they are the guys on the team that you can't just takes so much aren't going to pick one guy out you also the other guys around it will help. Is that what would read about it it's -- -- situation I don't know struggling when he starts. And we had a conversation the beginning of the seed in the east our enemies are selling so well. They try to bring -- off the bench and that is something personalities fit for coming out the best I don't think he's one of those Cokie guys. You don't read anything form in the post if you think about where sharp -- -- -- Drive draw and -- That little 1614. Foot area. So -- -- not a view those guys that you're going to showcase up the best so I don't know how you go well. You know bringing him up there -- just think you almost have to keep them in the area and keep some semblance of of and interior. With perhaps on the floor it's this nugget we think that Doc Rivers as. A depleted bench but here you go he's already -- decisions with this roach who -- coming up yet decisions he has to -- don't start and influential cases out there. Seven point you'd ago Donny take me through your view that final -- and -- Lou and I -- -- kind of a rush shot. By Pearson. Off balance three fade away LeBron your face could've waited maybe got a better shot -- that time. You know. I didn't initially I really did not have a problem with it. -- Propecia you know it in depth chart -- and you know it did this shot just explained -- what -- is it alters shots that we can solely they didn't write it off. -- it's speeding away. And from some of them have been deeper than that you know some of -- have been on the wing -- bit further back. So that shot goes ahead and I know it's easy to say that for relief if it's fault or not but struggled in and it's so I don't know Terrence Williams and somebody like it. Obama got great setting a lucky if pierce makes sense out like they're with their -- that that that's his legacy that's what he does. I don't think in LeBron gave me is not included the American is everyone wants him to be -- -- like the Michael Jordan effect until. When we see Michael Gordon. Play golf and we seem chipping in at social and how it's like all Michael Jordan. He's he's he's a basketball player not a golfer but -- immunity have played during the course not agreed it -- if he really about we -- see. But not everybody's a scratch golfer don't -- -- yourself and we don't mean you know golf course around the country you know now. Let's admit it there's a couple might have been here that the figure that -- all -- but you know the point being is. You have a situation in the bargain that people think all great and had to keep that shut up I really don't believe collateral -- -- is that greed and they're better defenders in the NBA. Was so brave and so all -- that appear -- that. Pump fake I don't think LeBron goes forward and if he does. Here is probably damaged. Take one global and step back that's what he -- and I you have a success abroad. Who can extend. Now exit the shot properly so I really think they -- trying to beat LeBron really. To the punch so to speak in every I didn't knock this out a little early. But I did not have a problem with that shot because of who took it in and really what the situation was another good to have that that's happened. Help me out that plates of distrust our promoter ruler you know if you wanna wanna try to get the switching to LeBron -- -- -- in nick and Jason Terry on the brawn when he walked in right through that pick. -- wanna get another big kind of get that's what you open appears maybe on weight. Yeah I think I think what happens also lose that. You're trying to -- you're playing that you have the crowd going your the players you're -- -- -- to get the ball land and at one point it's like okay. My option -- on my option two is gone now the third option really where wrecking ball to and at that point. You know you have in Miami. A little bit of credit as much people don't want to -- I know a lot of teams we did -- play right in on the Iraq what is agreed and played it from the playwright. Because the defense probably pretty good. All you have to give Miami some credit Baird and also you -- all of I think he is that the job he does this is overshot a little bit because the celebrity that. You know he has on that team but. When you get to a situation like that it's like okay what is and what is the best thing I can sides of the ball over or -- I'm not even if we have a timeout left. And then that was what you're left with. Doc called basically LeBron on guard ball in the post game and 37 points economists is that a rebound complete game for him and he just. The different player now -- I'm curious what's is there any weakness right now it is game how would you go about trying to slow him down scoring the basketball. In one week and it would be. Community nitpicking will be free throw shooting -- a low seventies and low to mid seventies and the ball. And you know you price should so much I've volume that maybe that's not such a bad number. But if you look at greats who have played in and does -- in really great but the very good players that can quote gains. Reggie -- only talk about Michael -- a lot but if you you can do it from and didn't talk about Reggie Miller is out about. Kobe Bryant you know that the players who are really really. Terrific players let you know -- -- doesn't like guys who can make note late I think that. Is probably wondered but it it's the same you know when Michael Jordan within the legal only young player like -- what you do what our coats -- same make and laughed. It's like all he's -- mean. The goal he still going to be awesome all of Latin decide what -- well you don't want to go right go abroad and in that position where I. I saw him achieve a couple of and it -- -- I thought you lose. Going a little bit whipped up Paul peers in the -- reducing the so called economic try to chew my left end and you know eat you see the game it's so easy for and I don't think he -- necessarily -- sport I think he actually -- the one player remember. Outside Michael torture and pretend that I quoted the words of one cleric and remember Kobe didn't do this that actually. When he playing the game and a big game like that gold when he wrote that actually works on his game and -- not great but. There were points and -- but he's trying to work on his left and jump hook when he could easily -- -- with his right hand and that's -- special bargains in the the right there and they're not a lot of weaknesses but I think what we're seeing right now. Everyone who got a chance to watch Wayne Gretzky everyone -- got here watched. Tiger Woods is Michael Jordan. Enjoy what you're seeing right now because it's too close things kids grow they grow up a lot abroad and that's -- experts and right now I'm -- Daria I don't know I forget -- we were with the -- once Rondo went down even during that run initially afterwards but. There's a game like that change your opinion of what this team's capable of. And all you know when -- and I'd I'd love -- love their kids and they -- -- his rookie year. Early in the season were Memphis got to go to dinner with them and not look good they want because people that you're you're not in here at case and it will not -- July. Greatness. Is a little body you know great -- great players if its competitors like it's athlete who -- may be. You know Albert Einstein whoever that could be I you know Babe -- -- Those guys were a little -- I mean they are a little edgy there are a little off. Who wants one would rather play against tech I play whit Beck diet. You know people at all they're better without their virtual. And I and I disagree with that he'll disagree I think. They're playing better without him because they -- just in -- and have a terrific coaching has taught him how to play. Better without him but in order prevent -- to win a championship. You need a guy like -- You really do I said that they hurt he Europe. -- mean that is I will stick with that right now it's awesome to the other playing and Avery Bradley to meet. It -- becoming better because people be so hard and in a league or guys not play hard every night which is competent -- couldn't see in your Bradley's proving -- you know what it. It can be done and I think he gets a little bit more readable without -- being out there but. This team plays this way and you bring Toronto back. I think -- was Smart enough to know I'm going to just feed off of kuwaitis and I think he can make them a much better. Three game road trip starts tomorrow in New Orleans we watch and -- Gary the entire crew on Comcast Dottie thank you sorry can't golf today's knows calculate an Elvis and we'll talk and now I start although it brought us.

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.
