Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

They play 3 o'clock on on a weekday and maybe you're not able to watch the first couple of innings of the first half now fortunately it's a Red Sox game that's what 2 hours until 5 o'clock that's what two winnings. So by the third inning you should be -- to grind it out of bats doing their thing third inning usually look at the game Jonny Gomes joins us right now. And then you know people calling sheet and there I just caught our areas Jonny Gomes joining -- -- the AT&T outlined Johnny how aria. Girl boy you -- thanks to be with us what are what are these four or or five days like year. For you guys as you sit back watch the watch the play in game last night watch the -- game tomorrow night and get ready for Friday. On. A -- about anxiety you know Patriot just because. Mean it this machine here that -- -- you know I mean -- beaters and -- junkies. There's you know really not count on her not just going on that we wanted Jews you know played baseball you know later cheerleaders on the road and hit it. Forgotten that these guys jeez you know eventually point. -- we enjoyed doing what we -- to view. On would have been sick you know it's kind of our opponents to what we got here on you -- an opportunity that our wounds. I'm gonna get something on the line. And -- or a year annually or not on the road opened up which is not allowed to work on also -- -- and I get to work hard. And if you call yourself a baseball junkie if you're not playing baseball I imagine you're watching it. What did you watch last night and if so what were your thoughts watching the the rays in the Rangers. Yeah I -- watch what you know -- probably you know it's gonna watch as much based on -- in -- you know I just. You know which -- -- to watch not -- and no matter win or lose you know arm. But you know I think you should be fried -- -- you know. He's you know when -- -- out pitchers in the game. You know some some fishing or anything and happily -- -- -- on the law and now both teams that are back on the law. So long you know the good baseball game on you know obviously out on firemen checkers. And you know temple won the whichever one all year so you know it could be -- couldn't watch. You said that you watch it without really caring who wins will that be the same thing on Wednesday in the we're going to play whoever wins tomorrow night's game won't -- you have a rooting interest that. There is truth not really. I mean we got 97 win a main. We've we beat a team in baseball that we played. You know wiser you know few times. So long that means that I think this team has built -- -- to put anybody can beat anybody. Arm I think we're OK with what we built here in two where you know we play our game I think you know -- got a pretty good opportunity -- I saw a story where you've been to at least eight World Series. At as a fan what was the best one you went to. Arm. Can't really you know go one through eight on you know just something that saw on you know I was in northern California could hurt quick series. 89 you know that -- in the case -- and it. That's -- that's -- problem. I think that's parliament baseball -- picked off. Tour you know I got a best American League and that's actually seeing more mild backyard. On. Thought you know I saw an -- do that work in 2010. And eleven. And you know in those former guard he you know it would have been in -- World Series MVP. Nelson -- catches the ball. On you know -- -- Albert Pujols hit three home runs. On. You know a lot you. I can't -- in that game six where were where cruised in catcher you -- game know what okay. I'm -- the greatest World Series game I've ever seen -- -- that game as it was unbelievable. You have an I mean Texas had an opportunity to rapid you know one strike away not -- anyway not in -- way include not just straight one strike. And. I mean you know you think you can put that series you know -- You know the battles that this schematic accurate kicker machine the late seventies there and he. Are those a pretty big three big series. It tested us because there are a lot of guys in baseball. Who who would say I hate pinch hitting. I can't do it and then some guys just really good at it I -- finished one home run shy of the team record. Her pension at all -- had four club record five. What are you what what your mentality before you go of their. In a pinch hitting situation. Well he got three cracks as soon as our communication has it you know now but. I -- out you know better attic you know throughout my career. Had some success at it you know started last year and again this year. But on you know kind of win you know it figured out that you know you're pinch hit dozens start you know when -- -- called. You know it's is in my -- that's going to. Obviously. Who would you possibly pitches or. What picture what you bring in from the -- and. Or you get off the bench on what their pitchers did in the past. I'm what tendencies their catchers accordingly at that game. And obviously the situation. You know who -- -- behind. You know you might that change it but you know they got him out of granite base you know the guy on deck. -- so what what I kind of figured out that was -- you know a year pinch hit and pat at -- there. -- you know what the Rose -- get into the the -- workout -- -- preparation of it kind of made things easier. Jonny Gomes with a -- WEEI you know you talk about his being a team that loves baseball be a bunch of baseball geeks on plane again that's a great thing. But I think that perception would be able OK don't all baseball players love based on the doesn't everybody loved to come out to the park you've played on a lot of different teams with a -- I would guess to be a lot of different cultures. How how does that culture that how was it different on this team from others. -- -- What is it at soldier in pressure for me the idea that it's not like you know it's not like that at all I mean. There are some guys that just you know pat back god given ability you know when they were. All stars when they're twelve all stars when they're eighteen and all American at an all American that first rounder I'll lay up. -- -- beat them you know they don't have to pay attention to the game is at the pay attention to themselves. You know they made it to the big leagues by themselves and you know what their own talent so you know they feel they don't have to. You know Spain can appreciate -- feel that paved the road for them and kinda you know just go through the motions. And -- our energy Gretchen their exact opposite you know on the other side. And you know -- pointless and possibly future hall of famers. Played you know so many tees and you you'd you'd never know what they're going to be like I'm pretty sure the crap out -- them and -- -- shared ninth inning and our students -- And I mean there's there's not one guy on the sense you know called -- pitcher. And and I tell you. -- game -- -- -- in so many different ways to lose the ball and get knocked page you're old and injury -- and speed turning strikeouts Bible double plays everything. When you break winning down the gluttony -- yet to do away. So on the and that comes you know study in the game knowing the game -- -- and now I mean this is definitely the you know highest baseball IQ -- -- You -- celebrating the championship the of the division championship you putted some Beers into the stands pick Greg -- in the head and now. He's got to become an -- -- one of your playoff game to at least you guys had a conversation what was that like. Yeah man you know unfortunately. You know you forget that your duties celebrate with me I mean it's pretty much had -- at all and contact you know. You know. Our -- that we have a good time to understand. You know celebrating. You know you know -- -- for those couple hours that was not. But you know people don't really see you know behind the scenes and you know what it -- to get there. And down was yet or my the ball I bet my life and work out at my like -- get to that point. And down you know it's always. You know some I don't take for -- it. But you know that means that he yet but it wasn't happy -- guys by any means he brought it up first and foremost. That you know he's that you get. Played behind the people in front actors yet Japan's. And there's just a lot of things going on right there and now unfortunately couldn't catch out of my guard. But you know -- yet -- let me know he has good hands and calmed. He. He's ready for the next celebration to get -- some tickets. Yeah yeah yeah we go out there again. It's not like bribery. Yet we're bribery by any means you're on. He he deserved it more will be about the game and as of right now in order and the in the building so great so hopefully can break Morgan. It will you guys we watched the game together any of you guys tomorrow night they play wild card game most of the guys get together watch. I'm sure.
