John Ferrell Chauncey and trigger line today 97 games no brush fires for the manager and a great job 58 wins. At the break second half starts against the Yankees on Friday -- -- 937 WEEI talking a ton. A baseball today and what a good got to talk to part of the ESPN's got two days the coverage here he got home run derby they got all star game. Coverage tomorrow Curt Schilling was on talk a lot of baseball yesterday he joins us on the AT&T hotline will get to the Red Sox -- I'm curious republic John rocker's comments. A few minutes ago where he came out and said. Baseball was better off baseball is better during the steroid -- agree with them. Like on a break from all couldn't help out John Rocker would be great and didn't care. I don't think you're -- -- the ball replace. You know what I'm not so sure there is not on the front and I mean and had sent. That -- it was a it was a different game and I don't know who works writing it. You know they have -- open -- The apparel wanna ask you about this this team here because they know it's been a couple years now talking about managers effect on a team and a 162 games and show lined -- shot at the park and have a guy with ability and how we can perform under one -- -- postal another. -- because summed it up and input it as far as your opinion goes as far as the difference is you could have by playing for Bobby V in for John -- Well I tell you that our big -- program in particular days there the man of the year American -- at the I think he's done here I'm not surprised. But and I'm happy to see. When you're surprised and I currency and you know I didn't take a lot of black. It started talking about -- there are committed -- but I think one of the best -- repeat baseball people. I've ever know and tonight I've been -- -- -- -- in the game is over or at war and and I would tell you. So -- inaudible every business. You probably -- The best indicator I've ever been. And and that new development in the big leagues these days it's about community about about an open knowing when the bought. When he wrote about getting across your players it's about putting your iPod players in the best position to execute that don't have the appeal appeal perhaps it would have been mentally prepared. For the grind it put a patent and playing in Boston which has a very different animal and anarchy as well as anybody. -- -- better at doing that. Well I got to follow up than for those of us who have not EO and communicate with and can you give me example when he say he's a great communicate -- the best communicators you've been around a baseball. Current what does that mean give an example that. I'll tell you do you think -- It. Is obviously by a lot of very tight -- -- -- bright. And on all commands to support in the big boy is -- -- immediate sense of respect. But he goes out and try to to garner more you will also demonstrate. And you know like that like he would break -- -- He won't -- better you get in my way that -- I don't believe. John -- player in the media. Illegal alien and into it when you. -- -- He's going to hear from -- look -- -- -- or aren't like -- and to walk out of there are no -- congress and people the only people here that are about it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Number 20 -- you we usually normally your game. I think. It's been like that you're. Tool that means. Not a lot of -- or understand or important that he shall. And put me in network request what you end of problem but you -- -- as part and I know. And you are incredibly valuable in the day and especially -- -- -- -- know. -- he knows this and then. And -- -- it as it relates to media -- I think you understand all of the potential. All we can happen and it opened my big. It's an incredibly dog -- out. -- and give more we hear abuse is not fixed this rotation in the first nine stars Jon Lester looked a lot more like you did that in the previous 45 years before last year. Lately though I think his last eleven now he's kind of gone back to some things we saw last year what what do you see is a big difference from Lester early on the air right now. Why didn't anybody see the frustrate you -- she didn't ability. To adjust then and it's going to be great in the big leagues. Too hot to make adjustments you've -- 00 record and everybody goes through and everybody goes through on what we're relaxed here -- soap -- multiple parts. Because legal group -- -- -- bigger picture and I don't know. It got pretty Lampe and a lot because. On the -- I didn't know -- -- Cy Young guy to beat you -- interpret into our program. It over -- -- credential B cable and speaker Kirk and I that you approve it opened -- beat rhetorically. He doesn't have a dual port or something -- He is indicted now. You hope you get into the struggle gonna about a 140 -- and I got back to marketing your number one. Yeah we say physically mechanically pissed me when I watch -- -- I think it's predictable when it. When he winning now when he has struggled toughening it just sort of implode tonight. I set point to the mental side of it like it looks like he gets in jams wants to be perfect realize it's not his day. And just can't execute pitches whether it's an umpire whether it's a ball finds all and it looks more mental to me as far as getting over the hump and limiting damage. You write about that and here's a page you -- it in order -- -- when you're on the you'll see it in on an opponent when a pitcher out here. He doesn't have the ability. To television and so brigade which is what I agree that there -- Well -- and when you're going to go when he capable of all of nothing big senior Cuba psyched up about it -- the -- the great bone credential to put ago. And he has shown an ability to get -- has gained by put -- And about how -- everybody out -- and everybody -- on our typical white. Aren't you could go a huge part of it in the big return the one that should help each and had a doubt Marty should know. And should have no probably don't -- who broke. Who in government we don't -- what does what he shouldn't be called guard but the Big Apple does are there any gains continuing coined. And not the part reported. You know and artwork. Any any is that the crop rotation of eight will be good but I'm becoming fewer orbit between you know the prop treatment. Guy who was the race where I got her was clip buckle to so long ago now Kurds June -- like Tommy pitch but he had. A neck strain needed MRI and -- shoulder that was came back OK the discomfort I guess is coming easy decelerate or follows through. According to John Ferrell how concerned are all are you. I'm about Clay Buchholz in the second half and how quickly can he come back from this injury get back to the guy was. We got hurt spark a big bird but the -- in part of it we -- that are part of Hendrick gives news. Knowing. What an honor you. I would tell you that -- every art from the current reporting -- -- discomfort and pain somewhere. And -- I don't know -- -- peek at camp and but he also wanted to know and understand. That -- and what our discomfort part of the rest of them you'll like what happened. I don't know it could cripple children and you. And an important -- committed to it got to clear your -- has -- because of normality eat. It could be you know it it was typical -- -- or how important it -- One of the course -- out there it opens its apparent order Iran and you're -- are in particular ball. Because of popular pick up the -- provisions are. And -- that police have patrolled from the bottom of the -- everybody picked robot if you look at right now I'm like anonymous leaving this happened on Saturday -- problem. -- -- -- We think about October -- big Bubba -- In it goes bought all them and what current -- and -- that's what I've been intimidating three awaited turnaround now. It could have been intimidated the pick up. Yet what you've seen a lot of young pitchers come up here Felix to brought you look at him first couple years strikeout totals high. They don't get many hits off the -- can't get deep in the games in the run we've seen him lately is it just maturing third year type of thing realizing your stuff is really that good. Welcome in the spring training in shape physically mentally. Which he clearly didn't do -- supporting president and how would you go go unconscious but that's about you should only -- -- one time. What -- in the country you wonder where America was essentially pits and he should be in the paper there's like that just point. And and he should be -- -- cup or card and a couple guys from Portugal but remember -- the impeached. They'll compete in coaching between the mental game pitching. And he should be getting better he should be understanding that -- thing and every one -- commander told bought 800. This is arguable why this has gotten to the broader recollect I look at Chris -- guys aren't open it up to market report articles that are looking over some debris. Botswana or rock. It a lot of -- 9290. Or how well he wouldn't good breaking ball in -- are we could be getting better every start. And that's what got throughout Europe or street pretty right now that I -- -- -- donors have an eighth and ninth inning and and at a 102 to ninety. -- you're guy went back and -- little bit in terms -- starting pitching out of the bullpen brand of work we saw him yesterday and I. And have a curve ball and was able to get through a fastball location -- of that came we know it's on the board until eventually. Donaldson and others got him a little bit but do you think he can be. -- Justin Masterson tight angle to this bullpen and BL one in the L one and two thirds to winning guy and be effective out of the -- the second after the Steve. It's about and watching him yesterday. -- all about -- that that. You know are -- -- -- and what. You remember the card. It was ninety ordered 97. And it was a bowling ball but he group. It took a look at the slider intercepts and that when you go predicts that. Execute and equipment that you and -- didn't expect you know perhaps the console. Achieved no. Matter how hard we all week it's all about well and eager seeking. But he pitched pretty novel -- -- what kind of cup locker creature but now that the first here. In the end and you know it's great I'm always -- about marketers so all I wanna make sure my hard worker and my -- it happened. He comes up what circular burger don't wanna hear it in port Belgrade about himself. And I'm gone up dirt ball wrong and it was in the game and Leo good problem to what part bundled up eight I don't know what he needs that right now. -- but it certainly yesterday -- make it to look good intensity don't swing right now. Equally blunt despite the immunity indeed when you're first -- -- guys are the guys did I think the ball went. He gets out on the issue -- spent some time on it now last couple weeks the plight of -- -- he meets a baseball. -- on Friday odd doesn't drop for spring IAs is its spring game is straining game on Friday night that gets rained out. He's their Saturdays Sundays out a way out of shape I guess to see play again for the Yankees we ever see him play for that team ever again. Could be wrong and I won't be started do you have approach and nick uniform on again. I don't think there's -- scenario now. Stood up and step on your name and I think he knows. -- -- I think he knows. -- you know that that. I don't -- -- to fight what he knows that the a lot of memory and sponsors and I think it's kind of sharp and comedians. Did you -- -- big undertaking -- no machines and about and and I'm I'm from the -- -- -- -- our party started and probably wrong content types are being here. And -- all the palette and I would work a miracle -- moment the only terminate your. Kirk great stuff we appreciate and enjoy the all star break we'll talk too soon. -- Curt Schilling ESPN catcher brick and casting Downey joins us here in the AT&T hotline AT&T. -- its LTE was speeds to up to ten times faster than three G -- AT&T. Rethink possible interesting you brought up Lester with them you've been talking mental he -- ever physical standpoint but it's also. Cited the mantle's -- and everything. With a guy that really needs to find it is the guy he was in the first nine starts. Here in the second half John like you'll be as good for so long at that point you need Jon Lester.
