With John Farrell and -- 41 runs thirteen homers in the last three games and beat goes on but last night. Was one of those extraordinary Red Sox wins that we have really come to find common place this season Natalie. Well they've I don't know if you university commonplace today we get down by five. And much like they were the night before they they stormed back in that seventh inning and it was almost a replay of the first game in the series we stormed back in the seventh inning. Highlighted by obviously nepalese Grand Slam the -- some things up. But it's the relentless in this to the attacks that never escape this group whether it's the first inning of the ninth inning. Because even even last night when were up 128 when you consider the at -- Dustin Pedroia had against. That their rookie reliever making is in his debut here about a nine pitch at bat from outside on right -- that. Ends up with with a double down in the left corner. Almost exemplifies the way this team goes about the offensive approach and it is relentless and that's what allows us to build those innings and come back from the deficit we're in last night. Is John Lackey said in a dugout last night going save some of these for me just give before today. Yeah I tell you want to. I think here is as confident as we're playing right now and we never know what we you know -- going to a game you never know what to really expect but. As well as John has pitched if he goes on just takes care of his into the business which he has done routinely every time he walks in and around. Who -- where he's got a lot of runs coming his way and and we might be just in that's all right now -- finally get some of his fair share. Couple of notes from last night you bring in -- it's not a save situation of foreign game. -- Adam warmed up is that a case of I got in heated up on I'm gonna bring him and again I'm not gonna waste that even though you know he's not in a safe situation well Dave where we were last night with guys sort of used. It in the in the ball game previous to Koji plus the guys that had pitch multiple innings the night before. They're also in the heart of their order and we've got a four run lead. It is if I don't bring in Koji and the guy gets on base or getting cozy up get a -- getting in the game anyway so my thought is okay it's not a save situation. Let's just get him in the game and do we can to seal off right here now and he's done just that not a save situation but in -- way it was -- situation. Well it is certainly you know in this ballpark. Anything can happen as we've seen the last two nights in the quieter we can make that ninth inning the better. He has a remarkable way of making a ninth inning quiet every single time out that's what seven or eight perfect saves in a row. But 27 straight batters he set down that in essence is a perfect game. To do that at the big league level against the line if she's facing is incredible. Well it it really is and do. The one thing that you know -- -- -- -- start to get more notoriety for the performance -- is open again this year but if you look back what he's done not only in Japan but. Every year than he's been here in the states his performance is your isn't that far out of the norm for him. The fact is he's now in a close with Ross always get a little bit more more notoriety where before he's been that. You know seventh eighth inning guys sixth inning guy were you know the strikeout totals for the same the hits allowed per inning at the same. And yet finally with us -- maybe because we're in first place were in Boston he's our closer. Some of that acknowledgment from a company like you certainly hope that's the case because it's been an amazing run for him. Time for our Mercedes-Benz question of the day for John France but your line of John and you're mixing and matching a little bit -- you have Jackie Bradley and today. While Jackie had come to us Jacoby as we know didn't play last night because of fallible ball office -- probably 56 games ago. Re aggravated it in the final stolen base two nights ago and wasn't really responding to treatment throughout the course of the game last night we did send him back to Boston to get reexamined. We're still trying to gather all the information there's probably some more testing in violation that's gonna want. He has been put in the boot so this isn't just a quick -- anything he's got something legitimate going on here and and we've got like -- -- get more information before we have the definitive plan going forward but. It's kill him right now because he wants to be on the field he's complained banged up. And hopefully he's back -- -- -- so are you concerned about it. While it's in that spot or you know it's that particular bone which might not mean much to people listening but it's the same -- the both PD and protected broken. In the last couple years and we've got to be very careful with the spot and give at the time needed a quick question about -- buckles for -- ago have you made a determination on when he's gonna start point. While it's likely everything's going to this series and Tampa he's traveling back was today who throws pulpit here tomorrow. We've got just one more sit down meeting with him with long been. On just. How we get just the rotation going forward so. It's likely he'll -- start and force them to -- things -- today thanks appreciate. Our question with a manager was brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.

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.
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.
