It's just got John -- A wicket stand out. Mike Adams I hear someone else's -- -- -- definitely is and I was a little bit -- -- now he doesn't sound like that are out Jose low but now we've already had tax you know that they were that the that the play by play guys were. Dissing him because he has a walk off this year do you expect yet to walk off of -- It's a home run seventh and for Koji. Who are not for 12 gonna blame on the as a first homers given up since June 30 thirtieth that is Jose by 31 case in July and August. And 30 September 99. East nine case he went 99 days not a -- So you know it ago again you eat you know what's why you gonna give up a solo home runs were when you throw strikes like he does half. Carrillo the tournament wasn't a terrible pitch -- and hanging it she went down a golf -- -- down and got it in like a spoiler. Like -- what's his name did in the against the Packers lead there and Kirk Gibson or gives any years. I so you know good for an average good for having good for the whole entire city of Tampa today and -- eleven plays out. Good for them they sold it on how to read such fears but. You know at any course we saw ass -- command Fernando Rodney. What's up with a hat so sick that guy but he here's what happened. I'm not sick of seeing him he's -- he's a heart attack closer -- -- -- it -- -- straight out to stupid hat. Ask that. So but how it let's analyze three things that made a big there's this game first of all right -- me ask you -- you think this. Do you pitcher round Longoria with -- first base open in that situation earlier it was a fourth when he was -- -- Sports. I don't know when every hit a three run homer tied at three on the base was open I was the fourth -- one day at least. Make sure that was absolutely nothing -- -- -- you know in that that there. With every Wellemeyer is designed deck when I was 04 that's my players are well worse over twelve of the series and he's he's a kid I was hoping his pants when he gets up there now he's obviously under a lot of pressure. And he's not handling it well -- leave the game with menstrual cramps. And Sherrod on there began buzzing game -- -- he's outs and he can't get it done and he's on deck he's the clean up -- of the you don't walk a mile he -- the name though it was the changeup and same -- -- -- activities it's -- and struck down. Here comes boom there goes you know -- -- huge pivotal point game OK -- -- that number put I don't know if I think buckles can deal with pressures cannot -- -- champs in fact he got out of one. Right before that -- good choice to to strike out and I think part of it taking airs on gore his numbers are horrible against sparkles. I don't know another like her gigantic key to the -- he's in he's -- done well in the post season gives the Red Sox in the past remember Longoria. But -- there's no need to even confront him is my point -- he was the only guy that's a truly damage an arsonist fortieth birthday why tempt fate. Right you just under and I Bob celebrating a birthday and I don't that's a huge factor in out his facts Robertson for once. Maybe the history of his tenure with the Boston Red Sox Dustin Pedroia is aggressive. Heads up style baseball hurt the team. Yeah collided with -- there -- -- -- would have been an inning ending any inning ending double play and now everybody -- 31 out on that they look like the rays in the first two games soon then yeah that was huge and again here's Pedroia who I love you know that I love again. Do what he does best which played aggressive heads up baseball is those in the dirt and it and it cost some -- -- was -- -- -- it's a putt like you know but but that's what you try to get it -- a gave -- record and of all the times in every game he's made plays -- we -- -- You watch from the other night you -- -- turned ours every game to. He's a great ball player all the sudden when he dated. Release stymie the Red Sox in that situation because they -- again not enough -- nothing and different out our of course in the game. I don't know why you writer but -- pressure wanna see. Morales and -- And it tied playoff potential clinching game is is it is just me. A Morales can be a bit wild throws hard we know that their leadoff block courage that's what he trust Brandon Workman for the strikeout Ferrell keeps and a but I I don't know if I completely trust those guys you can't walk the lead only -- have a guy who's not gonna -- to walk the leadoff hitter in the game like this and that was off. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Cause you wonder for couldn't have gone another way -- -- got a couple breaks still. Oh absolutely -- the stolen base and right very -- is also Ellsbury at third event of an up by six inches was out. At an at and what that did was that which -- situation where. Now when you come around of the games that other line again Ortiz is out of the game. And very sitting fourth in a kinship with carp who strikes out yeah now I -- also saved. And our -- up 30 on account of Saltalamacchia. And drew disappointed me tonight in a big way with their inability to get anything done it all with men on base that was painful. Red Sox had 21 nobody our big it was earlier in the game there -- -- and Napoli nobody out nothing. And you know they scrape and scramble for the three runs they get before the fourth from finally commit late in this game. I don't know I mean I think there was some some question marks -- can now in my panic while and I think they would tomorrow night Red Sox to. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But they've been winning two out of three -- a whole year. They went on -- won a lot of series. Three out of 43. Out of 52. Out of three bing bing bing you know and it 600 ballclub throughout. And let's face it down there and I saw some things and I from the umpire. That made me think he might have a date tomorrow night in Tampa at the doll sized sigh you I waited that yeah yeah because I wanted to share that with -- -- -- exist that place anymore I don't know doesn't matter who beat -- -- there will be you know -- -- -- -- -- make sure it was a game tomorrow. You know of course. And I'm -- it's again in my afraid to -- tell who would be. He throws his strike the ball's low he goes down again he hits it -- -- -- -- -- at -- the thing you the other question I guess deposed as the -- -- is -- bowl guards whether issued a penchant for Stephen Drew. So was -- a tactical mistake by John Ferrell in that situation did the Red Sox put themselves in. And a little bit of a by now nevermind -- Tampa Bay with the cramping of of minors then. They had to do the double switch and lose their DH and all that other crap going on. They kind of made a couple of mistakes and they didn't all of a total is the one hitting in that spot I don't run that sits. Well but tone sounds like some sort of suntan lotion yeah I play as sounds like that you take when you got -- -- furcal headache. Take -- atone for that that deep local bottom -- debate anyway a good -- -- the race you know whatever. Another game tomorrow night tomorrow as will be at 837 I believe rhetoric that's correct. And then after the game writers the marathon man. Will be here would be it's a lot of wee small hours of the morning is correctness. Talking all the folks out there who was worth of baseball on TV would probably just drink -- -- maybe do both the choking their pet chickens or something who knows. And so here we are alive and -- talk to you until lump at least midnight 6177797937. The tech's number -- telly text messages to. 37937. As the Red Sox lose game three. And gave force tomorrow will get right to the phones but we need this quick flash break stuff I crap. I -- a phone calls -- taken right now 617 service and I 790 several try to -- real fast for those who were -- underweight Mike in -- your first the Red Sox road to redemption thing. The Red Sox were you review one -- doesn't matter we're here. Mike I I go ahead you're on the right. I had I I just want to say that I don't light don't to a usual important what you in this game will assuming he's. I'm in the IQ's. I don't see Matt Thornton and at all well. Nevermind. And Morales and walk in the first guy the inning that haven't Brandon Workman coming and who's been Dicey at best he's had moments where he's okay but you know right guys. The young guys pressure situation. I -- a -- -- for bringing in the veteran Dempster in that situation I don't have a prominent. You know in Pretoria. I'm I mean that was a critical but to hear what occurred but did work -- pinch. That poorly I mean all right Escobar reaches on a ball that. I was Pedroia Clyde it would throw in a Delmon Young with a -- -- the ground obviously -- Rodriguez before I didn't pitch that poorly as so it. But I don't know there once I won the decision made to bring a man that's in that kind of scenario you can and the series Graham why why can't all the heart command. They get five outs. 88 tonight I -- has tiebreak. But it. Took me aside don't with the I don't know moralis here's a cardinal sin there Mike walking that first guy you don't do that well I think did the plan was to they'd wanna bring to a RA in that early because it is -- -- and it to get a Michael an extra. Right and that's a possibility -- possibly going to extras though. You know we allowed just that that management will allow this to happen. By allowing that run to command that's were changed a whole complexion of the game and you know. If I'm right up front morale some look at the mirror going and you -- allows him -- it was a messy it was a messy inning I made it look like the rays in the first two -- some of those mistakes so that in the the top of the eighth inning the Red Sox get Ortiz walking for the third time okay -- left handers and Ortiz draws a walk Barry runs four steals second but he's really out. Napoli grounds out to short no advance -- intentionally walked. Salty strikes out swinging and drew pops up well third -- what. Are you can tell margarine salt the you know who I wanna see do something in the series start to and some -- Napoli. Absolute Napoli has. Does not shy and so for and he Eddie faced a couple of lefties in the first two games that he has -- -- -- -- but so far gotten much done -- David. In the great state of Florida David how are you. Now that I'm I'm just -- we -- involved. Lot what what is -- thinking pitching so I'm. Two then Korea and -- situation to -- -- in the one -- and nobody out he basically you know -- along -- With two walks and a base and first base empty yeah what is he thinking. I think I'll stick and he has a three nothing lead and he doesn't want to force bases loaded as -- put the time they were winning run at the plate but I understand that but here's what -- The measurement is who's coming up next -- -- for eleven who's -- who's. Overwhelmed with fear in this situation. And not the birthday boy Longoria who's known to crush people including Red Sox. But not parts. -- -- number one I'm number two. I agree with the situation in the eighth inning. To control and sporty active and not giving up a walk and stole second -- -- the -- and he was all we -- out but he's the number that got second it. What kill me with the Red Sox and the play all yeah apology go to -- Is the kind of hostile topical of version to stealing third base last until it changes the entire complexion of the game. With all the about the commend him and it filled out the playing -- Wright stresses that Ichiro but they do not believe in. Still -- -- -- -- -- left I left -- pitcher you have nobody idea -- Mike Napoli facing the left the united situationally grounds out to short. Where do a better job at least advance him over to the grimy city but somebody bunting there would have been better that would remain on third and one out. -- kill me. They do not believe in and and somebody somebody in the media. The real barrel up all wadded monopoly -- sure -- sure -- -- that question the hardest -- certainly do it. -- -- you know -- green light and heat and outrageous chooses not to do it or he's. He's tall but still third base but there are -- the game went on third base especially -- night. Can be such a commitment in that position. You don't make that you don't make the first out or the third out there and I don't mean that's a -- world but secondly it is horses more susceptible to it in a divot left him on -- mound David and that's that's what -- -- -- -- -- he was on the bubble at Ellsbury stole third in the night. That they're looking -- -- to articulate their. I am and whatnot and two walks and -- don't look at it I just don't get it. Didn't look great Woodbury just stole second. It's it's not that difficult to figure out that certain guys about a lineup didn't even contribute anything to runs and aren't -- and every opportunity to. We haven't that you're expected I think the bigger deal here's David as you're expecting your hoping with a lefty on the not a McGee in Napoli. Facing a left hander that Napoli is gonna knock on Iran and you wish you well at the left hander drew get a hold on second -- David what about the left hander. David yeah this wait 12 okay. But the left hander drew facing in a crucial situation facing lefthander on -- mound more than once I'm not sure. They you know go for Bogart's that was at the 78 the eighth in the -- You're right now about the possibility. Absolutely right -- David -- at Florida you knew Tampa. No matter what on the good you know they get to worry about that. That's in May next day it's called in frequently disease -- had stated John Farrell he's like the only -- really and -- -- at -- hello Matt. That you don't you don't want to talk about baseball we could talk about the great round of golf I had the Joseph Morgan golf tournament today -- ever wants to start and get you don't always -- ballgame stuck in my golf round. That what's out. Hey guys Mikey John experiment that are worse. So our guests are. Obviously big disappointment. There in the end but my only point is. May be a good thing the guys are working. It's this Detroit Oakland game clock. And saw out there where can we sweep them tonight. And then suddenly we got that 34 day rest again. That it hurts the last time you know 345 -- -- he came out of the box twelve to win that seven of four and in two consecutive games again and they know it did play again as well. The play on Saturday -- Right OK. Just -- well yeah I mean I understand the consideration that because I always wondered does a little tiny bit Ross grows and it may be that makes him as a game. It didn't happen -- the play that enter squad game. And they seemed to have no no was probably that whatsoever. Course they were at home the whole times -- -- well I think Chara made a good point leading into that it is a big difference when you know you're gonna when you're gonna play when you're not having some of these teams in the past that bloated don't know when they're gonna start up. 6177797937. Writer and Mike you -- you were you Red Sox review talking -- you know about the Red Sox caught Red Sox -- And no one pitch down to Longoria and here come. Swing at a time. Okay. We're back here recession here Ryder -- were targeting UN -- getting your text messages some of which are very very good zone which are just absolutely stupid. I like to guide his says this guy here says. Work -- -- text is soft Adams watched gamer he read a box door. Well I divorce game -- my question really about work and it wasn't about how well he pitched in tonight's situation but why is he in the game at all he's like -- these like the tenth is like the ninth or tenth guy out of eleven I don't know -- Ferrero likes him I'm not out off like completely trust me -- like come quite apparently that you can make you know the strikeout pitcher in those situations may be he loves that may be loves them. But my question is more or less. -- what's. Why would -- get to crack at coming into a tie game -- pretend that question I'm asking not how well the pitched tonight giving up that smoky. Was I was even hit it really was in his ruling it. But. This is a guy over the course of the year you're his earned run average ones. Do you. Now was around 54. Point 97. Is that the guy you go to when the situation that's my question and -- not as -- a good guy players capable of getting guys out. Well well is he cable quote pitching is as soft yeah but guess what maybe he's not a guy you hit the ball so well I think he's so that. Now who's too confident for the rays in that situation and it's part of the reason also part of receiving go to Dempster is because Dempster is prone to give up the warmer and it's not just Workman. You know it's Morales to. You know it's a tie ballgame -- in the freaking playoffs paralysis one way -- doesn't -- nit -- out here thinks it workmanship committed to be committed pitch a whole inning you know tomorrow night -- some -- our morale is this is either really good or really bad there's no in between with -- and it a's have -- to give feature an unbelievable curve ball he throws -- Chara is either backcourt starters and can't control it and he's not trustworthy in a situation like that. All in Rhode Island of the it's such review program of all. Yeah unborn don't care how are. Couldn't call him. Listen this is an operator okay. Psyche quite easy six innings he had number three got a. Right you don't get past we -- -- pitches which in my opinion is Brett low for the seventh. He hit his power what -- at the -- and you the -- quote I mean it's a no brainer. It never even know. It might. Well Breslow a resolute about it you know after row 13 innings is our and I understand that it is it -- they'll resolutely pitched a one bad I would sure hope. I don't do I expect. And best pitcher all season. -- one I think he only pitched one -- from -- to make any sense. Why bring in a reckless morality -- biggest problem his entire career is that at -- he hit both strikes. So that -- can you weren't really that we -- old. And Larry -- Breslow and -- is our so admitted I guess it's the other decision as whether to bring your browser go with Koji right there. I guess -- seventh inning Breslow eight pitting speed against their. What it is now and ninth inning you -- because no brainer. Well we're hoping is that what buckles gives you -- it right or deeper -- -- -- -- -- -- -- if you have a did he really pitched that great tonight. Oh yeah now he won't get out of a jam it up with a three run home run that was it that was all he gave up he gave up the three Ronald part of that was on a you know low inside changeup that. Against the best -- to the question is surety of been. Throwing all balls on the outside part of the plate that guy with the hope that he swinging a couple of them and leaving first base open at that point times -- Pitch around that -- That's Michael -- I don't think that the play at least six innings he gave up a great run. That's all you want from -- -- I'm gonna have a he's better than a number three's not looked at a number salary. You could definitely when he catches for most of the -- -- -- -- but I -- He barks three guys and he gave his command was good volume of seven -- that's not Buchholz Ian at that point in time we struck out five home runs would kill them but here's the killer. You say to yourself OK game on the line RE eight inning. Let's see morale is -- let's bring it and will follow up with a Workman. Who had a four point 97 ERA and a whip of 142. Out. Yeah that's that's the decision you make of the game I don't think so. I called up and I said that he does all the right -- Farrell -- did he -- that he will work. With him -- -- a no -- -- You know -- here we are we don't you can't sit expect the Red Sox aren't we -- crazy but given the thing is not that I completely interest but -- didn't it would -- -- That did his job I -- he he okay he writer I know he he didn't do was really his fault. That that he advanced that inning okay Mike Mike again when I'm saying view is. Morales -- in that order in that inning to I think too bad decisions now in my it worked out for Workman. In that he didn't have he wasn't across the problem morale is leadoff walk was but guess what. I don't think he should be in that game or Morales at that so what are you do you think guessing those guys for X yes save those guys for extra innings if necessary. That's what you do it. And while they're getting -- and getting -- shadows are there mop -- -- -- thank you. That's gonna met for a while that my guy you can use in extras to go for awhile if he gets warmed up and up is -- -- Seattle got -- like that who either -- Dempster would have better for me open but it definitely Koji in that situation if because you it's still a tie game. So -- pitches the eight maybe doesn't pitch the ninth to throw a lot of pitches the -- you know somebody else but. You got to get yourself out of that jam you know especially morale is committed that was his back that was the biggest -- a ball but to think. Guy -- -- would walk to one DuBois would probably walk to invite to that pitcher no I don't think I'm not -- to blunt the Arabs into the goes deep and -- right yet but it. Actually the guy Paul just before me -- -- my asunder you know in terms of the miscues to the bullpen but he didn't use. You're gonna bring -- you can bet they use them not just. For trickery out you know but. I think the mistake that I won the mistakes that that he can do about it for like that at that point -- -- yet. The PB traded on the line tomorrow that this is a chance to you know to -- open it. Can't -- because that's not you wanted to -- -- Omar Vizquel the way they're talking about a -- -- national television in terms of the potential world. Of the places but I want it to make it. I think how to get into the playoffs this did not. The regular season why -- pinch hit Gomes automatically for not but I believe in this because then the -- you gonna switch headed there. Same goal and get it if he doesn't want to pinch hit I did. Well and shortstop Alex god. For. You know. Broke the habit I don't mind that all I agree with that move Gomes for knob -- that situation numbers are completely. Different. Ready never let me know what you might go lefty but you know that they they are -- walk on Summers a beacon pre read what's gonna happen here. -- -- went when Ortiz is limited in the four spot is going to be Quintin Berry. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What -- had Carr who is a great guy that I didn't have any problems with -- they would stayed in the game if you wanted to extra innings but. It neither one of them is poppy when it comes to a situation like that and that's what do you cut off you know and it -- that the reason they did it was obviously the right -- -- trying to get that one run. But I I played I played for the big inning. Did I just think yeah sometimes you have to have the -- -- -- -- gambler in in the playoffs. What do you like take the Dodgers tonight that they they moved up -- had to go for the kill -- the gamble they -- they want to win it at home. And they think this -- their best shot. You got it you know to close the series you've got to take it yeah. That shot yeah I don't know about the dodgers' decision bridge Kershaw Lyonnais -- I would I become -- -- -- Freddy Garcia. That Cuba. Pay -- you have a splendid night down info remote. I've questioned you know -- It's been -- however. It Bryant didn't go home still on the playoff roster for the for the race Heathrow and -- -- just curious. He was with them during the. Yeah I know he's hurt his knee is not other playoff roster that you -- the other Gomes is a reliever I don't go to golden ticket and I wet turf and guys. Yeah already I know I go target I'd that's enough meant thank you out there these. -- and we let mango tells everybody forward their tempers his including Steve Bruno once a year. 6177797937. Techsters at 37937. This from says Mike whether it's not gonna stop trying to beat Longoria by pitching him inside he kills and every time. You can't let him beat you you put -- first take a chance admired by a good chance by the -- as we mentioned Myers. That home by yours incident involved at Fenway Park and all that. And I ended up you know for twelve so far before coming out menstrual cramps in the seventh was -- seventh inning they switch happened I don't know they remembered. Buyers out -- yeah it was yeah after that it now when he struck out in the seventh. -- Troy has gas -- yet we know that today you know but we let's forgive Dustin Pedroia -- because for ninety and a hundred times he makes an aggressive move on the field it's the right one. And it hurts and I used to say it was a kind of a fluke you think that was a double play ball in and being no outs and and bases loaded after that. It was as if he thought -- was it short. Okay his process if you watch the game -- MLB allowed clay. To cheat every pitch. Yesterday video of him throwing between starts big -- Every game in 2013 Harris so before and liquid this -- Texan ball continues to tap his index and middle finger in his hair then throws wipes and done. Dark stayed above his right but stocks. Its parent yeah well this guy -- note that we need buckle after that every stretch you know what a joke did you notice he did they have any always does even in due course. The -- bull frog. Lotion on his. All of -- -- Lantos suntan lotion on his left form yet well -- did have that that was visible if clay that I was talking myself about this earlier tonight is he like he's a fan guys get a rarity in baseball. Has it that 80 which what -- towards real good daddy. And that we know whether he's doctoring the ball stopping the ball don't put some stuff on it. If you are so good that it that you can't get caught. By people who are looking forward then maybe deserved to get away with -- and certainly the hitters like -- look at right now yes -- week. And he's a cheater who he's a Jews are -- -- I mean I look at it right now I know he's cheating okay look at his body. Okay that's just that's ridiculous he is on something right here you know so the hitters can cheat. And maybe the pitchers deserve a break distressed -- gets good genetics is huge the ethnic. You know the strike -- is big the umpires like -- that well yes sealed Wiig is definitely a handful to deal and its future. Meeting and in his regular job all females and it's they have means more. You have to use yes field we exchange I could be who knows -- out of doubt anymore -- in the car Alia. Red Sox review. You know I. You know elite eight that wanna take it to the Texas it just don't like under a little bit. The order them badly tonight. I don't think it was a ball an -- -- to -- moralis. And I mean it looked -- We don't know let you know nobody that inning. The ball didn't leave the and -- really didn't know that that that's not the point you walked the first guy and you're you guys what to say I suck. Well in -- -- -- -- cleanly and Pedroia didn't count of first. And then the -- God for drivers to -- get away what happened in Napoli broke toward the ball yeah it was in Detroit dryer was on Napoli should stay at home on that knows paralysis ball. Right but I mean look and and he is telling me what morale listed Jo-Jo. -- you're telling me what Morales did after he walked the first hitter. Okay that's the guy who scored. That's guidance and again we have it at the -- play. You know I mean it is progress that altruistic that period and out. There attempt and the play up the middle -- double play to ignore Shaq in. I get. It -- at it. I mean I totally out of you know what it's different when you go 123 after you -- allowed the guy to come around and get on base in first place. That's the thing you don't you know walked up first. Guy the epic you know like it happens -- -- OK it happens when you regain crappy pitchers can't throw strikes well I mean I them. Yeah I mean I will have resolute rustling in the third and I don't know if we put them and then we -- Woodson well I. I mean if we get a lot of response I'd still go Morales in that situation over -- over Dempster or -- -- some of those other out over -- Now but it's a tie game your -- or two years I mean this thing you're looking for coaching maybe two innings of a story that's it was a tight game they brought him in the ninth and so why -- -- many -- saving him for -- -- -- -- -- that it was a -- ninth and tenth is what to try and that they have what what's different treating it. It's essential that you got to put out a fly out. For the night and -- answer right -- -- play Sunday we heard mediate in and try to shut that out -- that put. Yeah you know because you throw strikes he'd get out and hitting an 891011. Pitches and then you know -- and here's a guy you used to be a star he can certainly give it to winnings and and if he gives it two ways we -- heads of him on top than it is at the Pittsburgh five race. Look right to -- I think I just you know put right. I'm you know eat eat eat more aggressive and that's terrific but I don't regret so not a good thing and now any. In this era in this rare case it was a negative you're right six point 77797937. We're gonna hear John -- maybe John -- can explain. After the break. A little better as you might have in the press conference to people I'm sure question him. About the Longoria at that which is probably. Tactically the biggest missed -- a bunch of of things the -- -- -- and because of the owners -- Celtics the big one overcame early and one of his the three run lump was. Pitching to Longoria -- we'll take a break and come back to that sound here on Red Sox review. And and -- -- the Red Sox. Lose five to four and the series not two games to one if if the recession of game four scheduled to aren't rated 37 of the WEEI Sports Radio network. John in those early in the game any consideration walked Longoria in the fifth. No. Not synopsis. To bring the go ahead run to the place. Clay and struck him out popped them up off onto the change ups and got ahead in the count 01. Changeup was near the spot that you try to throw one down and in on him I just didn't get to the bottom of the zone as much but a no no consideration walking him. They had a for the skipper he wasn't gonna walk at area and you know you gonna see in the look Bellagio I -- an argument for any any opinion do or don't do. I look at that as a broad concept of this. The rays don't have a bunch of great hitters Loney can -- our time and time again and surprisingly but really it's all about. Number three near your lineup every single these numbers in the post season in his career. He's a cup around 370 crazy he was such -- -- for the -- are winning then so saved him Crawford. Who -- two home runs tonight was -- home runs. You know that's what happened subs and sometimes it changes seen. But. You know as far as walking Longoria it's really about who's up next. Who will convert -- PO I know you have the bases loaded and is minors capable of hitting a home run -- at thirteen home runs as you know something like that of course he has. But an -- in that would be the go ahead run. But with Longoria it's I think he's a pretty save bet. If anybody that line of stoic pitcher and Richard -- well for the long ball and drive it's a -- it's yeah yeah he scares you the most more than any other hitter operated by far. I don't use any question about and that's on the post game John Ferrell -- and again -- second guesses as Tommy LaSorda with Tommy John Ryder. -- -- -- I don't like he says that because first of all if they have to guess they don't know anything about baseball and secondly it takes him to -- just to get it right. Of an -- -- -- second guessing is part of what we do part of what -- is hindsight 28 when it's always perfect in net met at -- -- bed and Chelsea elementary you. Hidalgo of what's going comment one that was look Michelle thanks. -- that I sort of one thing. What you are saying there were 80 how great it is I mean I think Evan Longoria hit a great area up. And I -- -- a couple of playoffs. And talent will haunt you can pull one out hot like exactly right it. -- that was I was surprised but no there's -- -- yet even if it's -- of -- well. You know I've for the Padres in 84 I guess you're gonna say well he's won 88 hitter he got hot for a couple days. Overtimes at 245 hitter. With seven home runs all year long and good for him they know what and they retires oversaw one or email them today hey you know. That was a lot but it was a fun game and there's a lot of interest in parts of this yet so weird game. -- -- was weird. Not in the and that the same way they like our great -- it up you know told that they -- -- -- but it. I wanna talk about spilled milk no film looks like a great no ill will will middle bill is building built. Well as -- William yeah an -- -- bill nobody calls. Don't make it great. Great policy in and I on the whole game -- -- I don't -- question ever -- order short outside. Now on the. You know -- -- he knows it too bad it was that you know is one of those very rare things where where Pedroia. Perch it doesn't usually ever happen that way. It doesn't usually happen but I think he caught the game I I think you know it's sort of -- -- -- certainly get our guys get so they are -- like. Saddam in the game tying run -- you know I think I think Costas and I game I I really do what you guys think. Of course he didn't -- me you know again it's there with their about the scenario of different -- your lower factors that affected the outcome of this 54 loss. In Tampa Bay -- they were twelve to seven against him for the year 10211 against him right now in the play -- And you know if you if you if if you automatically think of the -- are gonna go through sweep everybody in -- then you know -- for his -- as the playoffs. Now we're going to be sorely disappointed if the Red Sox losses series oh yeah -- -- says oh yeah but I'm not gonna panic. Tonight as they won a -- on I might get to to take it tomorrow night you could be right 6177797. 937. Now programming note tomorrow night's game at 837 start time. We will have a special road to redemption broadcast with. Salt and holly and who else -- Loney. Over along maybe tomorrow before to someone who says -- that our special broadcasts of Red Sox review after the game until probably. -- 2 o'clock in the morning and goes right with the 830 years haven't sort them. Now if it's a four -- game tomorrow of course will be -- around midnight or so later and that's just it just has regulars at -- game will probably beyond -- -- Now wildest game four hours in nineteen minutes and that is a part that was -- who's taken forever with runners on there was it was a long game tonight -- almost like Yankee Red Sox can. In Brockton we go to gym next hello Jim. -- all miked how you do Jim up to those guys. I just thought it was a game that. The red -- as like you might say the urinate it away because. Iverson has to yeah but -- I usually just say that I want hats is the word at all but. You know. Is it that intentionally walked Longoria with dangerous. Suspected -- the team -- almost. Ought. You know push -- what don't you don't -- -- that's if that's around a minute it problem or recognizable like I got to let that get us. I haven't shut out. Could that wouldn't get any more runs up the buckles up about having Mike. Well. I opened a little -- little too. Don't know it's hard to say what whatever you know argue it does go -- which you know and what happens when actually did happen up the fulke part of this whole thing. -- was that was the play it's the the double play ball that was just played second base because Torre is never in the way. In the UK I don't know who would have been a double play it would have looked like he could amendment but you definitely got a sack yet at least. Still alterations Longoria well. We -- difficult operation woman Gloria Mike -- I would have done -- I wouldn't you know look I -- I don't think you really give them much you know yeah I know about it potential -- but it -- try to swing at a bad pitch. Just so that doesn't like like. I get throw Koppel and it's almost a semi intentional you don't you don't actually put your arm out with the catcher and Marcum. He just throw you know the -- -- -- bet -- by accident you don't Daisuke nibbling. When you don't look real well I just what -- horrible illness usually that some of them pitching to Longoria and -- the divisional one. Just decide ya CL -- is Wilbon a Manny and doesn't. Lot and it and a bit of the field Robin assailed by enemies out there and just played appalling to a triple. Yeah he's right at the same exact additives to the Braves news that he was Elliot Johnson bowl people the triple. Mark my words as Yasuo week gonna find out now -- -- he's a mental case he's not because of -- jobs at a card jungle I had. Elliott you and Aaron has -- I love -- happen that. And critique Harold and I look at the my problem in OT or. You take -- -- Sort of picture and know that the picture on the mound is a lefty the major on the mound thrown seven. -- not -- out -- and put you out at second base he was. That in the way it. They can't hit a pull out there right fielder and all of the sudden -- go to national -- batting in the lineup yeah I didn't hear how long the game went good -- -- I would I would but I hit -- you know obviously a pitcher. Game at the -- at the old -- should. Well action was ironically lol but Tony ended up hitting and -- on in the game winning homer right. As they did double switch. So what you know you've played well winning now. The guy makes the second day why aren't they walked go home which you know to go to bill. -- Saltalamacchia strikes out. And then. You know you get a little. -- he made an even even drew. In an eight -- College tours equally -- and they stole that game. Where he could come into each. Life. -- -- -- and because the kicker and a double switches you. All over the place like it normally I'd expect an even knowing that you. Are not a bad. -- -- -- -- And here's a reverse that they know that probably is a guy's gonna hurt him most of their line of -- you know he's one for one with three walks they just said screw it we're not gonna deal -- them. And then you got Longoria. Who's clearly the only real viable star threat in that. -- that rays lineup and these guys second and third I would just had some of the singles that's a two run single. I'm not I'm not GM -- a number orbit facing up. And it really jet largely in agreement almost everything -- done all year he's done a fine job. And you know we're going to be able to -- Mark Eaton but might -- somebody young like it'd be until that would -- on my door and I would a win lose or draw I guess that. How -- sort reminded. I thought it made sense at all or admit as much respect that I lost a -- this whole month sentence and at the end of that that Josh Beckett -- attitude that he showed exported out of I will take Longoria any. It away now would you take him if he dropped the -- off his first name and was Eva Longoria. Oh would you still take them and take her sport on Sunday and -- -- Rios squeeze one more in here before Maria make make like bandits. Charlotte and Everett. Eric I'm liking what subway yeah you do. 080. Gordon now Torre -- like that comment like. What escrow had two out sure but I'm sure he's not having problems getting some one -- -- with a salary again. Why I called quite a few -- All to call bill little book I -- screw around some pet name form yet now I have a Sunday will does that -- its will and that's it it's just like you know. What do you do you must say that be sorry that's OK okay LA all cherry has felt like I call I could call John Ryder read Jack Ryan. -- would never be running. Jack Ryder about how how -- -- that's all we all know walk at all and tell me if I'm at bat it's all right all. Right exactly the key thing is DC -- the post season once follow Enola we know what the last walk up against the Red Sox -- the post season. Remember Aaron Boone I yeah. Now that I thought he'd get back to eat at. Now you have is it happens it happens. Kurt bark like you're back -- because all of a sudden this guy's a superstar when you're 84 easier before Padre policies over the next year wasn't -- -- a lot of with a royal buddy beyond the free -- and a I don't 00 you can't you. Share yeah all. Right -- -- in well at least I'm on sweep -- you're making a Halloween reverence there nodded -- razor. Tough team they always sore knees but I think the Red Sox finished off the mark narrates coming up from midnight show on -- the call you know Ryder have a Becker tomorrow night after the Red Sox win the game behind peavy I really think that's gonna happen to remind. I do. Yeah I do too I think he's out -- hard -- competitor he's going to be just and you know luck in this playoff activity that he really -- himself into writing he was economic the playoffs with Chicago -- know he was not -- at that Alex a lot of surely stood up. So while -- coverage all day long I don't I don't talk about the Jets I think they want to beat the -- know that's why don't talk about it. Good to see a writer -- -- right and thanks to Craig -- which grand. There with the production of the program that it will talk tomorrow have on the WP I Sports Radio had. Okay.
