-- And now our silicon -- swollen painful rate roller board or -- -- Fun cleaning. -- -- Well we solved it Kelly and sports radio and W. Von Miller of the Denver Broncos have been suspended or will be suspended for four games for a drug violation. Many experts. Are predicting the Broncos represented in this terrible does this change their predictions now. Now the first four games they still playing a lousy division in the. By the time they end up in the playoffs which I think they will Von Miller will be back now will be able the use amphetamines or maybe that will hurt him but finally -- of hurting the Broncos at all. To Bethpage -- some get a chance to -- -- in the four. Thought I heard from an irksome because they've already lost Elvis Dumervil little problem they had there so Elvis Dumervil gone. Von Miller there their only real scary pass passed Russian threat -- for four games sure but can we say this. The prediction of the Broncos being the best team in the AFC was little skeptical -- little shaky to begin -- I agree that. Overrated little overrated heading into the year but because this is only going to be the beginning of the season instead of the whole season not network. -- Phil Mickelson had an amazing final round yesterday at the British Open and finally added that trophy to his case filler tiger who is the best in the world. I'll ask the question is the best in the world. Tigers ranked number one phills and number two. Have when you when it comes down to it if you just say. At a tournament in the -- won this one. If you got a tournament to win -- got to put your money on feel we're gonna put your money on Tiger Woods put your money on tiger. I would say the best the world I would go Tiger Woods drove it I don't know -- Watch it watching him the way he's fallen apart on Sundays in majors over the last last -- so it's not pretty. Cute. It. Should help. Now vodafone's news. How the other ones. About the fifty government for you to call yet the the triangle take care this and he deals that doesn't work out too well form I would take Phil right now I think so yeah. I'm not I don't know whether either one of them is particularly likable -- one of people were rooting for Phil. -- and stents and down the stretch he would do much needed it Lee Westwood he was giving -- -- Tiger's not saying I don't tigers don't has the reputation. But it really is interest in watching him play on Sunday is now in majors he puts on the redshirt last yesterday had a covered up by the black vest. But it doesn't have the same fear factor that I think it once did guys have no problems don't -- to tell them if he'd won the question I was asking is would you think tiger is back. And I still think the answer is no even if he is number one in the world. Back meeting to winner tiger was before. Know back in terms of being a good player again yes clearly Tiger Woods a good player who was a threat any time he gets out on the golf course to win a tournament but. In terms of being where he was when it was a legitimate shocked that he did not win a major anytime he didn't win. He is not there it isn't gonna be there even just because he wins another major I know 3725. Or something like that. And is making that up when he is 37 years old B 38 and December. Does he -- -- Ten years ago it was an answer to that was obvious yes of course is the maritimes and if it's inevitable. As he passed Jack. Don't finally does and I know it's easy to say that right now anybody's it while it's easy to say that when he looks the way he has in majors for the last few years but I don't I don't think he's going to. He needs as many as Phil has -- told -- career. And there's so many good young and when you watch the tour now and watch how many good young golfers there are. They really it's it's an impressive group in any given tournament. A few of them are there between the Adam Scotts and Brandt Snedeker isn't -- still hanging around at some legal guys that are still there. Yeah I don't I don't think so I don't see you know what was on this level ten years ago no one was on -- level now. Maybe no one is still on this level but -- that the field is much more competitive than one factory. Yesterday Bartolo Cologne tosses third complete game shutout of the season at forty years old -- is having arguably his best season of his career. -- -- What are your thoughts on -- -- Believe that I thought these are my thoughts commissioner. Did on email and they don't using -- using email. Start a campaign. I I take great offense you're -- by Mariano Rivera being cured from -- part that -- about it bothers me. Bartolo Cologne and Major League Baseball. Given me the middle finger every time Cologne takes the mound because no treatment that's -- there's no way. He is able to do that this is a person of interest. Should be tested. Ten times a week. There is no question Bartolo columnist -- there's no doubt him why. I guess the answer here is the same as you just said about Tiger Woods 37 has been -- 25 -- held it up and for the same reasons on tiger is I would say it about -- call. -- -- I view I view them somewhat similar I don't anybody who is I don't I don't -- and similarly at all only Tiger Woods is used TDs in his career I don't view Tiger Woods this thing where you parked on the hunt for -- and every facet of -- artillery round was that internal people I believe it yeah absolutely. Career was over and -- -- and remember he was with the Yankees yeah. And Brian Cashman said it's amazing you know we thought and then -- the surgery and -- -- generated is -- and brought him back to life what happened. At the platelet rich plasma injections. And then he had he went down -- the Dominican and got some fat from his -- stuck into his elbow right -- no doubt. You watch it watch in the game last -- -- the shots of CC sabathia is albums that -- and gross to almost in slow motion LOO perhaps flat. Mikey had the love the weenie shots of the in the all the shots that flap on the elbow he had the law that. The. The AT&T question of the day Antonio Morris in his second year linebacker of Florida was arrested over the weekend for parking. At a police dog. His excuse was that the dog -- first. Is -- the funniest a rest you've ever heard of. I have to. You -- to -- and will Muster office. It would go in there. You know really really a dog. -- like you got arrested you're walking out of a club. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You try to throw the dog I don't know man I don't died in August. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It feels that much to arrest somebody for -- auditing -- -- but it is there a specific statute that has no barking at that part of -- Kind of pattern -- -- what is happening DMX summit amateur events to be totally screwed up if you were to run into one of these intimidating of police officer. That's hold on. So what that was opinion on -- so we we're we were asked earlier we have some of these open -- here we -- you guys terms of you imitating a what you do to talk to your dog yeah.

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.
