Let's go to -- -- brown. As you them brown. The great act even and brown on Twitter down in Texas. Ian. Regulations in the first guest ever on. It the -- Israel and put -- somebody. My career highlight it. Well is that as the first previous two callers they have said the exact same things though evidently is a great throw for everybody. Including myself who I want to ask you Ian. -- and brown on Twitter. What some stint for violent. Anyway. What's it what what does it give us some a system that tidbits off the John -- media session this morning down. I don't think it's not the most you know intricately -- -- they don't have to -- -- banks that are in Vietnam tomorrow. -- get that -- looked -- -- you know congress cannot but the fact that it has included are. That's they epic battle it. And you know poppy I'll give him some peace -- -- -- and see I would look on none of that by -- -- and they'll consider the -- -- -- -- Yeah. They upon -- on the belly of the muscle. The government so it's not so well on the buy a separate split opportunities Billy the last. Interest and opinion intensity when he reached when he tried to go to the extra room you know and that's at least they'll be over here. Are going to be -- the dislike the intestinal. Turmoil. Was a catch phrase for Terry Francona. The belly of the muscles are are are goes through for Ferraro aren't that. They're out here in 2013. What are. Special work that there are not receive a bitterly Tucker mark a little after the game I -- -- you see a little. A little -- just get a -- in summary -- -- -- -- career he used to and so well unity stability. He get away and anyone that quote mr. -- to assist error terrible timing you know or something else to come up. Are you were also on the docket from the federal conversation. They'll talk about just -- -- -- what you know what it's sort of almost -- and -- -- and dispute the fact that this guy. I thought it didn't throw much and it shouldn't in the copies and I didn't get negotiate it made the or maybe some of that is. Can't see that first round strict import. But blunt connect reflectors on a little bit and street he said look there are growing 93 in the past well spring training. But now -- -- you know he stopped and ready to the other day that stocks -- averaged. -- I need to be bigger -- sort of lit up a lot -- certain -- please. Complain about being from a -- airports are not peace keeping something from them both Europe that are perpetrated -- that there -- I edit the even in -- references before the first start of the year yet 46 times he ignited soup is it two times in the last couple outings or something there. Yeah there's got to be something -- -- -- you -- that there are. You know every every time he knew he had some. The results here every start the standard at the high wire act. You know we're pepper if you read it bases loaded opportunity or altered every other priorities he can't he. -- -- -- I heard you alluded to act the second the other that a spectacular open to it now and you know one guy coming back from from me jumpers it Lackey obviously doctor. I think I -- away. There are you -- going to be union are. You know our secure and to restart you know so. It is that they -- -- seriously are a pretty quickly but you gotta go to Alan Webster and you know waiting in the wing to just poke -- always -- and doctor. That's where it is because you have feelings to Bryant situation. And -- and as he said he hasn't been terrible. But but when you have an -- Webster sitting there and so analyzing take how to take that leap. But he is the same time then what are you -- Dubroff I guess of the conversation for for down the road. Other then the -- brought other than the bail the Israeli anything position only that it they're talking about his victory no work. Actually a little bit middle Brooks to you know it's they -- -- kind of a plant down now elect the spectators. It is -- not -- I mean this -- an overall it should or sitting. You know rhetoric 200 in particular are -- 81 -- AP the you know like I struggle like that for the first time it. Struggled badly. As you want to protest your government he starts a little bit and Iraq play it that way and that aren't quite similar to I think it's predicted that he. In the Irish. There's still it is edited -- they've achieved in the community are underdog here. You know Napoli -- you -- they've been neatly done. And middle reorder -- producer a middle put it you know certainly we really are a lot about it. Well you know why because David Ortiz at 14100 GOP yes and Mike Napoli in the crap by the ball and and to your point is this when those guys start coming back down a little bit that's when the middle -- things become more evident. Yeah exactly that's -- -- in a certainty from some. Got some -- to -- Pedroia Pedroia who over the slope on the strip so. -- as what was is I guess his demeanor last night after the game and his demeanor before the game today. It is therefore -- -- sort of relative teach. -- he's given -- art and -- and yet you have interest that we. You -- -- commentator on their purse to the -- -- mercenary. Saying that you know Derrick Brooks speech. Sacramento. If you're that there are very -- He'll say he you know the pork. The sort of panic question is regret -- -- -- as you -- out that he says direct quote on the you know what. And it actually wasn't a direct quote. -- -- -- -- to -- -- the fact that he got a single thing around the. Do you talk to the Specter of the camera. Be right under the light -- they say you you know on the you know what down. Well clearly did a -- who never -- has gotten to him and he's turnover and leads the -- so what's the latest on -- Go ahead. To circulate to try Europe he ducked out there -- over Cuba its Internet page that you wouldn't rule out a lot more proper -- this year's team and you have. Last appears they picked that this is just -- -- opera computer Russell. My my last question the -- just the overall kind of vibe as we head into what is a very interesting game Lester Darvish. It in everyone back here where -- at -- they're playing bad in in and there they've lost two in a row and this is if they lose can be unsuccessful road trip. You get any sense that the demeanor has changed within that clubhouse because as he said. It's a different year than last last year every single loss this kind of added another and puts more pressure on their backs. But did you sense any big they have -- differently this this morning. No I really have an elected to being nervous in bell on -- you guys are choker out -- learning -- -- -- -- -- two groups. You know and -- it's really no -- or even he couldn't really lost. The last two -- and there are -- and they have a one run in the spirit to it does seem stereo or you -- eat doughnuts and direction also Antarctica that's our. -- -- work ethic that's your best do your best radio parents of all time while ago. Let let it another way I want I want an art department. I tell you what next time we have the -- approach you know it's union the first gas I promise you enjoy pop put those down there ex squeeze squeeze another mile and in.
