Then you have the final blow with coach you are out -- in the mix with four other names and yeah I think he has a chance. If it is gonna come down to the fair and it's not necessarily accomplishments what about overall around the league some snubs and surprises. Yes you know I think -- -- to kind of go back to you look at. How -- teams who are represented rule and -- in the Red Sox the best the best record in the American League. And really only has three guys that's not a time. But you look at it for example. Castro Houston whose the catcher and he has almost identical numbers -- Jared Saltalamacchia he makes the team Saltalamacchia doesn't. Which to be -- John has surprised me a little bit. And all the conversations that we've had about this. -- Salisbury. -- who are you Knoblauch not a lot of conversation about Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Almost exactly the -- Castro but when you have a few guys on one team make it in only one guy. Make it for the Houston.

I if this was like comes down at John. I think the fact that the fans vote these guys and they want -- there and NASCAR to draw attention all star game which they need all the -- -- and they certainly do and and it baseball's great would -- not -- Jose Iglesias and all star and a fumble. Really crazy. I'd excellent as always -- appreciated and coming up next. We take her trip around the majors under her chambers Chevrolet pregame show on the WE yeah Red Sox radio network.
