It's -- prickly of -- and joins us on the eighteenth the hot -- live in New York. Brick game four tonight what's your expectation how to Rangers come out with some some pride for their team they whimper away into the golf season. That while I certainly this routine that you know they still believe that they can get -- in this series. If a cult is the challenges that faces them -- The knuckle ozone hole like that won't go down fourth straight to the Bruins team that won -- came fired them you know. There's actually a lot of -- the professional athletes on their team that was expected do something this year and the opportunities. Are sliding away quickly so I expect from the preliminary economic technical and it is what he did in game three. -- Brittany is -- says quick discussion just quickly. If David is that they're down 41 at third period you extortion expect and the joint kind of fight don't expect to sort lie down let's agreement. I can be certain individuals that won't take became lying down or take a lot flying down but I don't think they have a lot of those guys an airliner and I think they actually respect the the -- the with the Bruins played gold clinic in the right way. You know you could seawater to -- -- to -- a -- of hand but the -- certainly it'll -- on the ice. -- circle back to gain three brick we talked Q prior to that game -- New York getting home. I try to get their feet under them I thought the beginning of that game was pretty telling where corporal puts that. That physical line out there and for ninety seconds they can't get the puck on the road and and for not for Lundqvist. It could have been 5161. Did you see as much of eight -- that ice towards the Bruins in game threes -- -- The thing I love the brought to gain street guys will assert you know that no -- -- height persona that we'll like to talk about far more consistent in the best measure is. Quality scoring chances given up and you could come on one hand against rats in games three and you know even though they needed to -- in the third period the Bruins were never in. Any real trouble despite there you know one will be grass Drupal open bodies through a screen on match up and the down from the point so. The other the only thing that concerned a little that was scoring chances that they had in the first period were unable to -- What sparked this mentality coming into the series was that what they expect it from one of course all along even though they -- in game one and so. Eric -- mentally and emotionally what Eric -- our performance. And they just you know try to stay on the attack and played their identity which was the -- -- or alliances. What they've shown in this series is incredible depth at they have no Seidenberg both parents know written you'd only get part coach speak group and Hamilton wreckage at different dynamic to your team that speed quickness and mobility of the fact -- But I think you're also saw that veteran team forward you know when -- -- -- and the matchup you'd get with that fourth line. And -- -- -- would experience and would familiarity. And -- or checking simple fundamental effective and they end up being different -- on. Rick Austrian defenseman at that are outstanding in games one and two here in Boston but they show me some even more thought in game three on the road last change all of those things. What -- your impressions -- did you expect and to get that kind of performance on the road. The big different. Allow them to be as effective in this series in this matchup with -- Is that back pressure or lack of it depending on how you're a look at brought back checking news or speed and effort that allowed to have more control wouldn't -- so. I don't see that the urgency from the Rangers on their -- checking illegal act watched forty cruel game -- down here in New York. Pick apart a ski people from center right allows re all the pros to drive the net. Still has the pot store and it will be yet to -- -- quality scoring church RI slot because at that pressure what they're wondering just. And you a lot of that in this series and so allow the -- to be the better team offensively because they're doing the job sure. Any Berkeley -- joining us it's not a pre post game coverage and -- will pay about that. You mentioned defensemen they have scored now what eleven goals so far brick during these ten post season games. Can you lie on that or at some point do we look back at that first line and look back at that second line it's okay the scoring. Stability this team is still get refocused on -- and not the Bruins defenseman. Well can create -- point at -- open right and that's that's the whole concept that actually it lets them make police source of Rangers and they want executive mentality -- they try to get that weak side Winger in the slot along with the the Frenchman and the -- And at that point mineral and get a -- create them yet he can get some good -- getting your reflections good bounces screens whether it might be when you try to -- -- the net but. If your points are open in the offensive zone enemy fire man attacked him. He created them. He didn't -- on the net he's a Peggy Hamilton. When he didn't have a lane you know tightly art in panic about the -- what -- have that -- on the back for the slot -- -- if you don't have a play hard around even in the operative abroad to actively get used behind the net for -- the possession all four lines. You know when it partly operative Tony -- heavily for the -- partners not open. The pros and gone -- on what kind of let it once or is anticipating that plate and -- been here. That really love their own separate operatives don't. Brick through ten games but a lot of story lines that this team in the in the playoffs and we that the run a couple of years back of two Tim Thomas the first ten games and we look at Lukas his mr. could not get enough credit here so far. But they certainly are in the political in this series and we really try to break down and say well you'll -- won the first period that feeling out process work you're cool you're really important. In a hockey game well it to overtime games approached it in the record deal pandering to match. But equal enemies and make -- if you vote and he took a Tibetan game when he -- to the school won one. And -- had a surge when it was 22 courageous so that they were the better team clearly. In that second period and bought and indeed to. -- that was outstanding in extra what was important he makes me to keep the game. And being -- Gary mentioned during QQ quality -- for memories but when he would get them in -- particularly like match. There's too so -- -- medical it's our own country even though on what was awesome. Brick do we know in terms of the contract status with him was at the Bruins who want to -- ordered to go wanna let this thing play out get too restrictive free agency and see. How he's gonna play in the playoffs for -- extension. Then my memory and I was that brought off from a multi -- deal pretty good money and I each had no he wanted the one year the only one that you you know rolled by -- -- pick your phrase and I want her describe -- -- In order brutal -- routine defendants are lucky community their you know -- oracle -- not just an available one but a real good -- -- And you -- past tester and regular season obviously you do it again here in the proceeds. Brick going to be interesting here tonight to see how this team response and do you feel like last one for me that they have learned terms closing out games at Toronto. I don't a year laughing but hey game three I thought the Rangers come out and impose their will and and the Bruins might be trouble in game three was exact opposite they came out and they slam the door. On the Rangers do you take anything out of that have they learned their lesson flyers and even game three in the series. Yeah I'd look -- you -- units to. To that let's put. You know I still have memories of game five on all the lights against Iran all 31 -- -- all the way they responded in game three. Makes you think that if -- I'm more prepared mentally physically emotionally or eight closeout game situation on the decree closeout games beat believe -- open -- lesson learned. I expect the Bruins because the clouds and consistency calendar game that you'll be parked at a tonight. You'll reckless it's an interview and -- on the gold interview with honesty booked -- so. A wanna ask you bottom -- Perino often you know that probably no reason to change anything I just want him Upton -- a lot of the 34 ships. It makes it. It makes economic inventory value -- -- going it the match ups that they are they giving him whether to keep airlines that their goal against. -- -- -- -- the Bruins are down and a look at for a little bit more energy quote as to what you're -- -- -- out there playing with Bergeron. The march on March -- -- -- come around Bergeron and obviously you know as advertised game inning game now so it's. It's that opportunity that's available to load he can mix and match the beauty is that you have a -- in line that you don't have -- type -- force unit that you don't have to -- -- It's good to have those options and you may see a little because they get certainly because I think he would keep saying that. Need to do war you need to be more productive and -- other people we get at least play out the opportunities continue to present themselves you wanna take advantage. -- -- they do is an only yarder like him and he's going out there with reforming it shifts into it and you know it you open a play a lot of hockey here in years and older. And the question about it then you know that required discipline and coaching staff certainly tried to get it to. Attention especially along change situations and certain period. Try to keep it nice and tight and short. You know the the -- -- career the coaching interest rates you know -- -- acquired when you're first they'll all in guy. The -- top -- to recede but he needs to put the team first. It is best value to the team is when he plays well sure got to be shorter because they're the energy is they -- because that is -- brick. Our before and immediately afterwards you stay in the same with the covers on NASA. We are 6 o'clock this imply it's pull out pregame. Would you will be generated lives from that's where god with Jack and myself and not put down here.

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.
