At that filter unfortunately. -- is good at this -- great why don't we see what we hear what we read on Twitter all of our guests is just the haters because he said vote bush oh that's a bus -- he is still very I don't actually sucks that this sucks just great. -- you separate I would last night and I think. He's the best analysts in pro sports today I -- I think he is not -- I'm quite a big fan personally -- -- big fans something to them but I don't care the best almost all of anybody that's what he's gonna pitcher going eaten in the mind of -- -- -- last night yes there's nothing else like. I'd normally don't like pitchers as they get -- into pitching and every pitch trying to break your arm seamer. One oral again played overall -- -- -- oral -- I mean it's two seamer cutter and then it just gets tedious. Which some pitches I don't know. -- -- -- -- Reply -- but chilling. He gives you an -- -- pitchers inside but he doesn't overwhelm you with -- isn't obsessive dilution of pitching yet and you really feel was chilling like all great analyst tonight -- I mean I'd -- is the best baseball analyst with a -- though -- agree to have her shows are back next week. I don't know wine at a season will export send down for what she'll do in the game yet. -- as a oral is that it's that'll Little League game it doesn't lead groups are you look ridiculous tangled kids. I -- -- you can connect line lets go to the words chilling. As are all the polar. It's gives it too young for all of it. Never too young girl for but it surely you can really feel this notion no -- it's like all the great ones like Chris cones were. It in football it. Would be -- gruden I mean gluten gluten anymore. Jon -- when he was scared me bad idea is great yet because you'd since that it is goes from the guys you know from the brain Kamal that's ultimately what should I say how will this sound. It's a bully and that is to more canceled seats still following wow single worst analyst in baseball history. The single most Minneapolis it's true personality Everest at that he's gone. Doesn't seem even more ridiculous that we -- subject -- guys like money Ers like guys what he hears. Oral -- Hurt on the bench and and -- -- the only ones of act. So -- reckless home yet while Joseph Morgan was on the for twenty years actually throw the ball. Problem was the gutless critics though there. Receipt egg and remarks he loved amber says he won Emmys and how -- he is just awful but they were afraid to cross them here. And Joplin disaster but chilling chilling first -- now he says things before they -- might be right may be wrong but he has an actual opinion Bryant talks about is supposed to. In a caucus -- he seems like a nice guy he's boring to me give you learn nothing from the. Partner shall be last report but he. This is the guys who competes in competes in a very different way than everybody else and but he he brings a lot off the field as well as on the field and it's about over the next five to six weeks for them. Finishing the season strong going to do. A post season series with a rotation more than two deep and I think he might be a guy that today. I thought. Last them for the first time that the record BAC ALCS. They had a chance to go the World Series and always felt kind of fragile up to this point because other teams have better. Freeman rotations you know talked about him proponent as payment. Texas Detroit mean -- -- buckles comes back and they have a dam and Lester -- -- -- that -- And good three man rotation for men -- I -- should be for. A what you pass that one game playoff. And then you -- real series and surges -- -- game without -- seven sevenths they need for they got four of sparkles comes back peavy pitches like that. This was a great weekend for the star -- that it. It was and and you're right it doesn't feel as fragile as it did before but. Not trying to throw -- like -- -- party here emergency Kershaw Greinke race weekend what does that have to do preview. I'm just telling you that I admit that that your your good time feeling about this weekend and taken two out of -- from the Dodgers. And beat them in the series for the first time in the I think more than two months. Sort of mitigated bit by the fact you can add their two minute. Starting staff had -- 117. Yeah on this on this trip starting staff were talking about it often do with creaky. Or Kershaw or will mean these guys and you look at -- -- -- he really does he really is here for the pennant race he really is -- year. He really is -- acted on the ball which in September and may be. October 01 game playoff it's tomorrow everybody's on full rest who is it Leckey. -- -- -- he's on the mound they just don't do I can't relax you should. Am I up obviously PV I think off right now I think I jumped on the balance. Probably -- -- information. Steve he's been really did that one bad starting at last the last restart the lesser of refined team that's why for this position if you don't less is going to be -- -- the rest of the way. If -- comes back great for the Red Sox beat doesn't the world doesn't end and if you're in a fight to the finish human your rotation lined up you might the useless term goals in the final week in. So any of the four guys -- ago that won the you know what they're still. Likely to play and that still likely to play one game or imply oh yeah because it was still the US Lowell spinners that better they wouldn't say about colts and has no no now. -- took buckle -- the game he kept the ball. As. Well as souvenir. Normally the pitcher gives the ball for the manager -- -- enormous amount and kept the ball. That the market. -- first. Action in anger since June -- -- happy it's still like I felt like my prediction that have to operate the page ritual played a meaningful football game before it's looking good right now Buchholz pitches for the Red Sox. -- -- -- I felt good out that was my only concern of from the -- -- -- physically felt. So far in sort of did the same thing as we've been doing in the semi reasonable grounds he's my way through it -- the other -- you know fill the -- your ministries still. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know what they just sort of got going on YouTube hadn't until four pitches all together. Two thirds of an ending 38 pitches nineteen strikes three runs allowed one earned one bit. Three walks with one strikeout. He made it through without discomfort yeah okay are. The good news he's happy.

But. I'm over here now used to be over the habits but overall beating each other we straddling the fence.

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.
