It's just a record for errant throw particular hard. The little -- tonight -- -- his favorite. Brewers saw them beat me I. -- -- -- It's not there. Only the I had -- mixed. As far as Red Sox Arabia. -- rode on their great -- shouldn't dammit she. I'm Mike Adams your hosts. Are aware of my colleagues -- make available executive and advertisers aren't every single when you. At 617779. Seven. 937. I gotta say a few things here because I'd -- thing about a lot of stuff you're letting you know like when I think I'm a deep thinker I can -- I get -- like the -- -- the statue we you know yeah I -- down like a -- later something that looks just like him I put my hand on my face just like the thinker and I think it's stuff that's important but could you always dressing -- the show where ally should I forgot. I forgot I guess so which of these thoughts that I haven't but this year Boston Red Sox whenever an amazing ball club right now me and I'm torn Iraq I have them in the highest possible place. In my mind as far as regard. For the professionals. And the beat these guys have heart they have spunk they have spirit they have hair on their faces. They have that school clubs balls everything you need to be good baseball team. Did you figure -- who we all week to week and you don't want how's it and we know we get him to the end he's like the cherry on the Sunday there. They had John Lackey. Match and pitch for pitch what did you win that Justin Verlander who we all know his instantly minster. But the last 456. Oreo Monty get overrun -- some stupid number like that. He's got the dimple in his chair and he's got the -- face she's got the former Kate Upton girlfriend thing going on -- -- -- got it going on this guy. And depth it's it's certainly looked like what -- six k's in a row. As for me it's over there they were it was cardinal like here we go again in game one a little bit. But in the end. -- in his was key with the Napoli at people and this is a guy who's gotten out there. And struck out every single time in the series it's like almost again joke thinks that way. He goes to three to somehow against Verlander just wait she knows it's not going to be ball force he says okay. Sit here and -- As cold as he's been. Bangs it over the wall for the only run of the team in a beautifully. Executed pitcher's duel between these two guys -- believe. And Lackey. Was he pissed coming out -- so yeah already expressed that he respects but you know what that's what you want. That's what you want from your starting pitcher I you know would would Louis T out of it pitched just when if he's -- of course he might have refused flat out refused. Any good pitcher any good starter worth his salt in a situation like that. Once that ball in his hand and I give Lackey actual credit for that now. It could -- out the other way if if that a blown up matchup just like you would be to go through that year or you know with a wins and losses to bad luck in the know hitting support. If you got pulled out a game and they somehow gave up to leave a he would be very very pissed and I -- -- one tiny bit that's the competitor in this guy. But guess what -- once again. Waited exactly right and how can you say heated when they won one to nothing. Talk briefly that Lackey was it talked and Farrell and to keep an amendment Wednesday and I mean that was. I got pretty shifts and he can't say you are you Leigh Tony what do you gotta be -- to -- yeah I mean as soon as -- some come out of the dugout -- our starters is gonna be good and I'm hot and who's the right move and men that win Breslow got his man. Opinion into the dugout and they big cheerleader is is Lackey himself as. Huge it was -- it was you know way the whole thing went down the end to -- be keeping in. Junichi desire walk to strike out. I mean what was the magnitude of this the run that the runs on third base. He strikes out Cabrera they bring in our. Koji he strikes out fielder had a magical moments -- bullpen that can go down in history as -- hugely clutch performance. And what led to the victory matters. Magical moments back to back I mean everything Farrell did I was right even keep in Napoli in the lineup bargaining against Orlando you say. But -- I've played my cops just get -- -- the basket at the airport I left a huge you know as I did that he just has to bust one and he's -- capable yeah you know I -- -- is that -- abreast -- reported. They were eleven have a lefty against the righty -- that tomorrow Obama and not enough starts tomorrow -- up of from our. Is Johnny -- vandals quoted guy outside of a bomber in the country these days he's. -- there you know it's a helmet people low man and a helmet yeah the -- the pitching matchup for tomorrow frozen view leader curious of course it's peavy. Had peavy I am not really a pretty happy right now. Against Fister Fister hot Braves know that's gonna happen tomorrow at 8 o'clock maybe in regular time gave a night for you. Right here on the W your sports remembers Iverson what are your calls you'll take time be hanging around midnight tonight. And we -- talked every single what do you. Am really -- talk about small ball and -- that's trying you know we could dismiss that or you can talk about that tell us why. You know this game was so poorly executed by the Red Sox manager after after this one of the I will start from Miami Florida where Jonathan is hang in that Johnathan -- There employ -- reminds -- what's -- reds actually in the Miami area -- -- -- went down there and you know get the ball. I don't know open I have a friend who had a boat and it's actually better than -- -- yourself oh yeah you put it there you don't have to pay the -- these. Good. What Johnson I looked and I'm obviously thrilled about this winter and I hit who hit picnic of one not -- win but it out to argue Richard when he gets that Farrell and ultimately that Corey -- I don't. I don't understand why you -- left you there and don't let him finish out that one. At bat against appeal has good numbers against two mile. And then. And I don't know they're related or not but I think we're overlooking proposed leadoff walk to put the fastest guy who only got to Detroit. On traffic and run. You lead off with a walk and I was -- preferred treatment eighteen strikeouts OK and I went what happened man Farrell yanked. I mean I'm -- but after you look -- two dollar knew we are built him out because like regular outlets. They do what I did not only that but Jonathan you gotta go with the numbers that you know Breslow as being great he's been great he he never walks two guys in the same appearance and it and it will -- doing that all you heard -- walked -- So I don't know and I agree with you have the effect -- why not just let Lackey pitched the rest of that inning and -- remember it well wouldn't even shorter stroke and you know it. But -- thing is that their hats there has to be at that moment it's not 97 pitches in lackeys case because I saw a stat that right there was weeded out. About Lackey. After he's pitched 97. An opposing hitters after the 97 pitch by like you're only hitting 143 for the years -- wasn't that stat. But it might have been a match up stat between Lackey the next hitter. Might have been -- a matchup stepped between Breslow and the next hitter every it's all about the information you haven't -- making the right move and you can't ever say. They made a wrong move when they went a one nothing game because it was almost a perfect execution again. I just so I just open is all -- all -- -- is one tiny mistake and that runner on third -- watched. Get sends the right thing maybe that they'll let you only have provoked this one batter. And I don't. You don't go to two guys and I'm Dan Wheldon. Rests Breslow Breslow and very good against right handed guy hit it as -- -- -- almost been a specialist against right he's awake keeps the ball on the outside part of the late inning to -- and what exactly I mean and everything was important in this game I I know it's the sand and but for anyone to you know look back to what happened today. And not saying. Well I am I done this might have done that but everything that wasn't done that you wanted dissect were just out and work. Doubt to now here's the other thing is that the last home run the Mike Napoli had off Justin Verlander. Was his very first Major League game. -- in 2006. Of them that's the last time he touched -- Verlander for a long ball in in his first Major League home run up up up up. Now seven years later in this scenario I mean this is the only run of the game that decides an ALCS game three. And it's and it's Napoli Verlander in that weird match up and it showed the video and right before he did it and the ball went to the same spot. Right and -- Landis said that day will be a cold day in hell and you hit another home run -- -- and -- -- well just a cold day in Detroit all day period -- -- -- -- go ahead you're on the the Red Sox -- program John. Yeah I'd say I couldn't be out because that's a little early and stay. -- reds Sunday. Since John. It is just amazing. I think this team is -- as good -- -- any of that are such intimate history. I mean these guys just are something special. I am just so happy and. You know -- I couldn't believe it yet. How how happy are you John could you could you stand on your head yeah. We should mean -- and that you know I'm just saying you know when that -- Bryant hit and that. That would strike out and it was just amazing you know. Eating being take alone is enough to make most people happy but then when the Red Sox to what they did you had to be like in seventh haven't. Just amazing I play I expect them to let our other just before the Portland and happily. All grown -- he's been great to. I'm sorry was he beat him he met at bat we -- well I. But I thought so I haven't gotten him and he strikes out all the time and -- there was a home run them. Almost dropped Jerry. Yeah I mean I sit on things. The car and I've. -- out there being take treats him as well like twelve hours from now is it -- was going down we should keep score how many times the words amazing and unbelievable to going to be said before 12 o'clock media or they will definitely outscored the word being -- for the rest the program Johns and a car next hello John. It right are you know I'm an excellent day and let me I don't. Great. In a while so called I think. Not a light of recruited history -- like -- spring went to Lester made his comment about what -- an ace metric are out. Any great -- -- problem. You share. That those superlative. It out -- describe what they've done this year and tonight again there's just. It all in the making them don't you know. It feels like to read John it really does and that reason is paying off of that since April that has indicated to me that the Red Sox. Then or now have the tendency. To get nervous and (%expletive) away something Vick could be there's. On the contrary when they're behind they were great all year in late come from behind wins they were great in protecting leads out to the eight inning. A lot of that has to do Koji. A lot of it has to do with Ferrell. The the the people he's put in his bullpen has been unbelievable in the series so far and what does a Red Sox ER wrecked the Red Sox have given up. A grand total of six runs in three games so the team has an ERA of two. Against the Detroit Tigers who were second in the league in run programs produced not in the playoffs there ERA is too. And that by the weight save me -- break the tie. Yours now it's been an incredible -- series is no question about any kind of shaped up that way but this is almost over the top from what I've talked to for a series began to look under it's hard to -- look at these guys. And this is going to be pitchers. Series and and has spent a column. Big problem with the time with the Tigers or white still Alyssa pitching series because failed. Hasn't done squad don't even when he's a big fat tub of -- usually it was saying that all along -- He's a big fat lard -- the guy is I'm I'm saying and I know that he's a talented guy and he comes from good baseball. Bloodlines are all that other stuff and he said mark he's very had very big years -- here's what I would say though. He would be a better player if he dropped twenty or thirty pounds period and because there's no reason to have all that excess fat on your body. Army in my prevent him from getting three ground balls a year because he Campbell passed up more swinging and missing it. Five -- whatever it is for the money these guys get he should get himself in shape it's almost embarrassing. Well it's it is and when he's sitting I mean he's you know we have a huge years -- for the money you know -- he did not -- -- he'll never he never well anyway I mean no one's -- -- Live up to 24 million a year and all that stuff but. Yeah birdies then that I look at Nolan through we hit anyway. Evidence swing against -- you know yeah I treated this out the Tigers find him on that -- -- -- -- ever be defined his ass for leaving the ballpark without permission. On that swing dominant I mean he -- he was just completely baffled yeah. You're right we got full lines here when he's gonna take this break right now as it gets -- -- should -- -- short break we'll get to all your phone calls and not take an order that's how we do it. If Iran hole this five lines -- somebody hangs up your next 6177797937.
