What are your thoughts on how about how to. Oh is palpable on the jokers we did you anything that comes at a Papelbon mouth as far as I'm concerned is a joke the idea of taking anything out of his -- seriously. But when he speaking about -- other player like that. Ridiculous. Jonathan Papelbon has diarrhea of the mouth now maybe I've been accused of the same thing but fortunately for me it happens to be my job to be radio host. His is not is to be a pitcher and it continues to open his mouth and usually what comes out is not good what's weird to me. And this is this one's on me but. The idea of Jonathan Papelbon as being one of the elder statesman of baseball in -- gets the opportunity to not talk about the younger guys. He actually has and he's been in the game now long enough he's got his big contract. He's been in the game like seven years or eight years since 2005. He actually is one of the adults of the game but I'm sorry I just cannot think of them that way. Plus it strikes a thoughtful pose Michael really is you're a strong opinions on the game let you know who always that you've got to river -- hockey coach. Was that. Was it shock when bear went over arsenic. At the -- the fines. It's all about the bonds in what they want. That's what Jonathan Papelbon Afghanistan this is a game for the fans show at times. There are weird things going on in the all star game like home field advantage being at stake. In the World Series that's misplaced but for the most part it's an exhibition. And of the fans. Or. -- the National League manager what to put them in their dispute is that. Going crazy fit in well over 400. And is a month in the big leagues if they want him there. That he deserves her -- 2005 they decided Papelbon needed to be in the all star game because he was so exciting and electric you would have turned it down because it would have been unfair to the guys who tumbled anything liberal -- anything that brings fans to the all star game the fans want to see it. All that is good for the -- -- Don't be umpire Brian Romney has been fired by him will be first failed drug test. But be struck her shorts is still unknown at this time but I have my suspicions.

It's got to be the NBA would explain some things though wouldn't it. We keep talking about the corruption in the gambling. That took place in the NBA with him -- Have we ever drug test. In BA officials. This is a good idea I think the players association. I don't lead me to get done.

Fail a drug test and be up rung up for a where where where pictures up there in the third -- -- -- -- it's gotta be full. Football because of the potential users you see it at the referee position. And it's not just actually -- obviously big -- and you know I went to college with his son.

Really really fast running quarterback type -- college. But -- there towards kind of the same way your receipt -- conspirator out there yet he gives you the Sammy he's not quite as -- that go about it. They think they're trying to -- the that the youngsters on rise. Amanda did -- take the extra small. -- the -- like in went the NFL went to the new wider strikes beginning to make him look a little bit tighter between stare at Tora. And hockey -- and is another young refereed whose name I'm blanking on. Who also kind built the same way I think it's got to be the NFL you know who's not partaking. Who what's his name. What the the referee always sounds like he's annoyed he's always annoyed about it over the -- come on. He underwent caught very much Mike about that he was confident. Probably here they would turn as Microsoft hope he does he shares the name with with -- old lineman. I'll think of it just completely like in Steve's -- I just.

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.
