This -- Red Sox review on the WEEI Sports Radio network. Here's the 31 stood. -- and Heidi -- got away senator racing back Jackson turning around. I'm managing editor of time I spend the Berman a Red Sox lead and won enough putting. Mike Napoli just destroyed one copilot -- 18 that's probably fourth fifth date at least. This second tier of the boys out there yet makes. It's a review of DO CS game number of fine between the Red Sox and tigers the -- -- If not physically but let's get to. -- They block it but it went up at third base line for another Red Sox none of the wild pitches cost them the first time -- -- disgusting tonight. Read so let's review with the Mikey ends in June were later we. Our love staring is looking down -- -- -- -- 32 pitch to hang up my club short right field -- dry as they -- he's under he's been. Red Sox don't want it any -- 32 lead they had captured game five and a Red Sox are one win away from going to the World Series. Now -- Adams and John right here with Red Sox review on the WUPI Sports Radio network. As a quote the immortal Dave O'Brien. -- John writers I allies say you get images of the -- into the Burma would Napoli also the firm here 4607460. Exactly yeah yikes a quote our good friend Dave O'Brien aren't open lines -- Of 2 o'clock in the morning 6177797937. John I tweeted my ass off you you have been quite a bit I noticed tendencies it's like I am addicted all of a sudden to wise cracked him on the Twitter line. I get on -- Twitter line and I have to have a pretty good luck and here's what I what I'm gonna say about superstition right now is Jonny Gomes in the lineup thank. 50 now in the policies -- goes online and keep it. And I don't yet have the big part of it. It was a guys delivered coincidence but provides that energy -- do anything to change anything in. By the way for those who wanted to coach you Horace on. I think it's -- aborted due and it's about the adults if we can get five. Verbal requests on our request line here don't react after I am maybe. How we will play the coach view ours on and I know that -- dissent which man has it in there -- -- in his audio vault summit at 155. Is that okay -- just -- removed by the extended version I'm joking this is good this is real good because why well because here's why they almost get no hit game one right. Since then three out of 42. Out of three in Detroit. Against this. Much heralded pitching staff remarkable. Deservedly so to win the game tonight by a score forestry and to have this little situation hang -- there. We need one win to go to World Series and we have wind scheduled at Fenway where we usually went. Well it's a beautiful thing they don't need to know. I don't put their two games and all I know yes yeah well look look they have -- opportunities yes alligator as you want it writer you know wanna play with fire and I don't as well Avery went next game is so I know you do doubt this elegant and all that I just this week yes I'd. Exactly right yeah yeah Abbott good deceit Napoli get cranky and as well I at least starting -- that. Home run is to ease its original almost guy ever is here and he's like a really eats either heaven or hell he's a little girl with a little -- little Lauren did you kind of feel have their first home run -- Verlander all right now that that that might jumpstart a little bit yeah I think it has. And you know he is just content release contact he does pretty well in cities the lack of contact is an Obama through the course and human. There's no killing going on here for Red Sox fans and by the way. I've decided writer. That when Jerry Remy retires is present Red Sox Nation whenever that is I wanna be a run for that office why. Because I was the only one you know this that predicted 92 wins. So maybe they should just by default make me the president of Red Sox Nation in my asking too much here. -- now well go for it you know I I don't know. It's much but deposition the other -- is how but the the defense led the tigers to at least in in left field that Russ that was a shot I don't know -- was different left fielder. Would have caught that led to a crawl an adventure and of course the base running Cabrera to hold -- Atkins thing. In the first inning was provoked well and again you were not even look at it we gotta look at. On the positive side of things what the Red Sox guys did to get gates is there. As opposed to where the but the tigers messed up. Lester you know five and we have five and a third. Is pretty good it was the best he's -- but had a pretty good. Both they weren't killed Abraham -- you have both pitchers or an extremely sharp we kind of expect that did we might Q academy. That it expects Sanchez to continue to you know no hit the Red Sox or hold them at bay through six innings and Lester who's just been. Incredible so forth as to policies that yeah. For for him you know we we you even sent last night at 54 type -- game -- and 43 he made a mistake you know to Cabrera won out over the plate -- temporary hit relatively hard -- to the -- way again. I'm not gonna cynical play he got the files that look and then and then you know here comes as it is now oil and -- Breslow and my favorite player. Are the favorite new Red Sox player of all time for me this guy just came out of nowhere and is surprised that crap -- the most. -- -- and again mogul for some requests from who plays the song they played now when he on the radio via. A comes into a ball game. Here's a guy what's he got no walks and eleven strikeouts in our policies that's correct me hello. Blemish that -- the total moron but that I'd love to hear from any Yankee fan who it is my earlier statement made about coach -- and a prominent American. Power on this John -- -- -- on the commode and again. As great as Mario Mario Rivera is -- Wallace. He was the greatest the greatest closer of all time this year. This individual -- thirteen season Koji was better. That Mariano Rivera ever ones while. He well look at the numbers up look at numbers there is some lights out seasons their buds I don't know it has been or mark -- I very readies the postseason and want to I like many like the Koji signing -- -- Say that earlier in the season even the offseason but I'd never expect and who -- expected this type but the identity and I love that signing seven date tanning bed. Who who would have bucket that -- beautiful beautiful thing Red Sox one game away below average your phone calls right now because well because you America's -- -- Bob. On the North Shore you were first -- All of that -- you've got a bit too late night guy going around right now we're gonna lose that relate they practiced writer and I and our career and that's a much on the air hurt. I -- I would definitely -- -- that you I'm gonna happen to agree view that he's in right now. -- Better than -- remember. This episode we're looking girl that immigrants do not have a good debut on the council positions that Israel under and so he also -- Nobody wanted to go to the well. We know that you're going to go to the -- went. It. Wouldn't really I -- it all in all stronger as well. They didn't -- The Melvin and the blue and the reason that -- To act in that market and I want it. What you can expect that tonight. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I didn't know what I remember on the road but don't look at -- -- at home Zander and chant -- They get away and -- rigid form -- -- -- formulated and say this in the press conference Ferrell but my guess is. She said that's about the Bay's bats earlier right should scored on that -- that mid Atlantic series at the inexperienced probably hit there are these sent in a play like they do -- a football sideline wall that until I -- that -- -- he said don't watch slow. While Miguel library or are you brought down -- thirty star running and if you see he's not covered thirty rug right over the well well the guy and -- and also as well although they could have done and after. It has that it was -- would -- you know for just for his defense that they might have brought him in an excuse anyway there is a language barrier you know we heard all night Zander -- speaks four languages may -- one of them was an English during the instructions on that's speaks English very well it's okay though I mean the look in the -- man people people of -- that and it. You know we can because they're only want to dragons -- Stephen Drew. And he deserves it and by the way. All the 95 batting average. For Shane Victorino 105. For property. So early age that they're getting it done somehow yeah to Roy's lost. Victorino is just heard throughout his whole body about sort of promised you before the series has poppies and about 105 you gonna win the series -- -- -- re crazy. I'd say only -- they get the tremendous pitching that they have six -- 77797937. Christian Chelsea you are next. Chris. And boy howdy what should be our anchors. Went. Important -- from the moment that you won't. You. But the game. Is being ultimately -- -- and it. And program. That didn't about it and -- -- like yeah yeah out of the day. -- -- -- Yeah. All that green pop it out there. I don't know. -- -- -- good looking. I'm glad you're in good shape Chris. Nice work. That is a stream of consciousness that's right allies is always -- -- so prison Chelsea would either adrenaline or meth amphetamines and I don't know which. Broad meadow Vista so American about. A Tyree but thanks we'd love to hear from him. David -- think David's in Salem David go ahead. They do -- thinking the -- from Chelsea of being on drug. Well not really yeah I sort of all I started -- that it would have a problem that it's not only the first that it would do that. Look at gonna win and I've got a little little uglier than it needed to be artfully. And and I'm never I'm never this guy look we're -- street to come and -- home. We didn't shut down. By epic pitching. Two week we could be you know we could have been out of this by now. I think guitar for the taking I think we will -- -- And that makes everything. You ever ever go to your shut up guys. I mean I don't. You know and Cheryl Cheryl I'd like you -- there are well. 00 David you know because Koji here's here's David here's -- -- did -- just because Koji. Isn't Mario Mario hardly ever came in for 45 ounces. Coach you can do that he's a former starter. There are more about him throw strikes has committed to a 47 pitches and they didn't like apple -- used to it goes there and he does 89 pitchers Bowman. Out of there well I don't have a problem that -- what I if you can't live in the what was that one or two -- from the truth -- You go to go to our Hoosier closure and we appreciate your -- Naive -- you put -- it's a David David this is the American League Championship Series this hasn't you know game number fifty that's right this season that's a little different. I don't I don't like I don't like flip flop on guys like that at all because our. It's art but you know -- look at the matchups there -- all of matchups -- -- and there tomorrow I think -- -- you -- -- win this game for -- -- reason you -- along the way you got a whole different thing going -- you could say -- raising his game. -- Leland go into his bullpen. Evil would then lead last night and -- he he was saying let's respect for the Red Sox say they come back anytime. Yeah -- get -- -- -- I don't know boat I don't think -- I think deep it will hurt there weren't so he's a genius. But it didn't. Oh you don't have done left Lester and his that we were thinking there. And while it is even even -- -- -- need to pull laughter. And he's he's look at -- he's a big shot senator or whatever the rationale as. You bring him out out of breath blow it oil in the ground ball. Pitcher. I mean he's he's peek into the well in the strikeout guy or or shut down guy you don't need -- only eight it's scary about. Listen listen I think we should leave this and that they come back and -- it. And it got to blow. As poor as your break on I don't know what what happens if it was a -- that is how -- -- There's no definitions here it's mix and match has have been the case all season with the exception of -- provisional and you know seaports of one meaning. You know no matter what you say OK well maybe the same thing you were you were you're talking the caller was talked about incessantly happening was something would happen. An inning or two thirds innings later. So what it this is -- the playoffs this is a time when eyes they said they know coach he was ready to go five doubts. OK and that that changes everything that pushed everything forward right right. I mean mine I got them now here's the thing again and -- I -- we get -- like this stooge. I said the thing about Mariano -- text from Connecticut where the Yankee fans live. And this -- is Mikey seriously. You're trying to equate -- Harwood Mariano. Let's see if he can last as long as Mariano did that's greatness my friend -- years not make it great closer not to take away from this year for code you'll second. If you listen carefully to what I said. I said -- -- the greatest closer of all time enough probably Connecticut -- this okay. Then I said but this year. Koji was better. In it is single year than my Mariano Rivera ever was in the single year statistically. Functionally. Okay serie a spectacular years you flash Japan this is always to be next year. I -- I'm not saying he's a better all the time close and Mario are saying this year season for the open nuts for for coach thank you. -- in national and implement take a break him load a peaceful went again because everybody's chomping at the bit chipping at the bit which it relates to my -- shop. Michael was. As he sounds very mellow Mike. One. Totally. Quote -- -- as the break the record really. One which your favorite song might. All -- don't have any favorites. But that was that was the world was warmly and possibly created. Yes officials stupid it is to cancel public. Yet Mike you know the finding is -- you start your mama half an hour ago when she loves this on so -- go which she says okay because she's boss. I'm glad you're out of prison might -- on national -- -- finally. I don't know those charges were brought up -- And you know we wish the best I here's the song for your luck because you know hide your mom is pat pat -- he digs it. Follow up on the besides. -- we will you have IE Yang Yang Yang -- yeah I. Feel tonight and open through debris ago recites an hour on the verge of total World Series they are the third time in ten years writer and actually win one more game I expect. I wanna hear action this office of the taxes callers will be yelling MB but you know -- just pass -- along. You got that you noticed -- -- member of what happened the last time. The Red Sox -- were up 32. Was it against Tampa Bay well -- in it in a series. And in a championship series and -- yes no don't know. Well it championship if you're really never know the last time they were up by 32 heading into game six where they can close it out last time don't tell me because now you -- and I think the crap out of it was -- There was 86 the Mets great okay -- where they have the potential they could potentially wrap up -- series -- that we have to go back that far for them but you're right we do. And I was there. I know you're judge's seat you know thanks for bringing that up quite -- -- -- -- about that regularly aggravate. Has nothing to do with what. It's game six says Shea Stadium you know. And bill bucked his brother the autographed baseball whole weird story. That Billy Joseph saying the National Anthem and Billy Joseph the penalty in the seventy S and I would what was asked or is that they're version of sweet Carolina one who knows. That's crappy song for Detroit -- It's only like 18100 great groups from Motown right absent -- minority in Long Island Billy Joel's. You know piano man instead of sweet Caroline Brothers for their song bigotry that's just dump the -- at all about -- dumbest thing earn. Six point 77797937. And a lot of text messages will get your calls right now but first we just you visa. This text six on seminary program of Mariano Rivera has ten seasons that have been coached like better than Koji this year. Okay you find me OK these guys are such -- rods enough announces. Find me a season. Where Mariano Rivera at 74 innings. And gave up a grand total of nine earned runs for Peoria of one point 09 we'll start with that. And then finally a time when. Of the whip from Mariano Rivera was point five separate. Yet that's slower than any I. Of course he's not gonna finish top -- article or so or even the cy young and I'd Rivera -- more innings typically his season but. No not really. Yeah pretty much know usually more than seventy I don't have a step a look at our -- got Mariano Rivera he and I am sure he was rarely at seventy for an -- year. More like some 68 is seventy. Okay that's my -- at -- yeah and I mean it like it's been a long careers so obviously news. But the fact is that that. Eight point 570 you've got his numbers there what was the best whip. Was the best whip that Mario Rivera ever. All right I just got his numbers here. In Ali's. A point well he's a one point eight. Three point eight -- that's that's what coach -- career whip it is okay so that's his best year. Well that that's his is best witness invests -- OK so coach was oh point 57 and Mario's best walks and eight hits to innings pitched. Was point eight. OK so he's shall we a year where his DR -- was one point 09 or under from -- repair. As you just entrance to make appointment basic stats here he had the scoreless innings at the end of the -- and by the way we -- don't want fewer pitches. You know so I would think so economy of pitching I'm saying that in this particular year through the 73 games and he appeared and you know the guy it was -- a 101. Strikeouts. He averaged ten strikeouts per per nine innings I mean. Tell me that Mario had a better year is anybody out there and tell me that Mario has ever had. One single individual year statistically better than -- -- what I think is what people are confusing you -- it is -- -- -- promote -- -- an individual policies horse and that's what I'm talking about of course and yes. And I never lost your mind I N and I only said it five times I'm saying hey look rested its debate I already know sand on the record that -- was the greatest closer of all time. I'm just saying this year. Arian has never been as good as coach -- this year that's -- you know -- breaks out there c'mon. Put your listening years on as Judge Judy was this alleged enemy Ares one point 38 that's when he finished -- close runner up this cy young and ninth in the MVP I rest my case. And right in lol is hang in loose there's somewhere frank. And thank you aren't thank state recruiting -- it's our pleasure frank what's -- thank you one thing is today I'm piety charity in. That you played in years ago but that's yeah -- charity and they arrested a baseball game because that way. It is great you know let me go on -- yeah I'd like to hear about it. But what I'm -- virus like victory -- -- yes let's close secret until. Now like eight states. In birds in lemons and blanket -- in front and lay down arms. And then -- he would act and yet. And then make perfect -- and just as well the ball up. He's in Victor Reno has had a ballplayer he's had a very uncharacteristically. Awful series for gonna get all the 95 that speaks for itself. Now I'm not gonna crap they -- throw the guy and the crafty because he's had a tremendous year. He's been a very important part of his team especially defensively. But he he has an idea -- low -- in his -- end and nothing really hard even even -- limited -- he has but I I think I think -- substitute and while many situations. Most guys would you be playing well the divided by -- yes he's right you heard steadily IP is her I mean you might be diverted affecting his swing has such a way of it is and it's like Pedroia with a hurt. -- -- -- Might I point this and he professional ball and. Tickets kept it should be ample laid -- upon. Now do you think so army with the exception maybe of our hitters are mourning have Cecil what do you feel in -- And so I don't sheets you know and even -- there's exceptions when I'm saying. No no I am I it's not plugged in the open text very you've played to the -- so actions don't you remember -- six years ago I did play. A little. Looks like direct -- experts -- yankees in the Simon Cameron and the collapse option remember this. I always does -- do you say to experience that wasn't in Peabody discussed as a journalist and -- very. And that's written and I think it does sound like you were part of the plate he wanted to get up punched me. I don't know I get the playwright. Well you know we yank it. These things I know that these things pass really quickly Franken I sure hope you don't -- that -- although I don't write. And thank you and -- all -- I think part of -- to -- -- and you got to remember to his face now -- -- youth throw as hard -- that tough -- just -- them -- -- rights card which is that is on a -- basis -- -- -- -- -- -- I agree -- and that and I also will take it one step further -- -- I would say that any pitcher. Who makes it to the big leagues -- the American League or not should learn how to hit a little bit and not embarrass themselves because they're still athletes and in the National League you have to hit. And it's only way to be a complete baseball players hitting in -- right. And -- victory in Gaza -- today has done -- -- thank you frank appreciate the call 617779793. Set. To Florida -- calls from all over the damn world here on the show -- we -- David. -- -- -- you don't use the question you over that thing you were trying to get over last time. Yeah Hamas and I'm happy form. Would you I would go in Iraq or consultant in the. Roster behind played over salting and say you know I think they go back to Saltalamacchia. I'm Nat king brought deserved it after what he did tonight I think -- pathetic attempts -- care. -- -- -- -- Better I agree and there I think there Ross is one of those players who can impact a game defensively by his very presence now the question would it would have to be asked David. Is how to spark -- feel about it. That's what you can do for the team I mean uphold Catholic -- I mean it's gonna help the team and you do it. Pilot buckles and have a problem that you -- how to Saltalamacchia PO I noticed the sounds a Little League type stuff led. I they probably would go backwards Saltalamacchia face insurers -- A couple what do you do now became the third base I mean I mean all of -- the -- one hit and when complete backup -- he. I have yet to keep -- and they don't you -- you kinda do and that's based strictly again that you need at this point timing you to use numbers to your best stability here and and you say well. Middle Brooks has been awful. So let's go with this -- at least he walks at least to get subbing out. But -- -- -- while watching and by the way let me just say this. I've I've said I like middle Brooks a lot at these can be good professional and -- as a player are. But yet he did and I think that was a set play believe it -- not because of Cabrera is lack of mobility but all of them are vital and not what I'm saying is I think they they sent Mel Brooks and there's a -- are saying no listen. We're gonna -- here and watch and keep your -- at third base because have been going Cabrera charges for the bunt. He's not gonna BO get back there in time and that's exactly what happened -- -- -- -- given too much credit in the middle Brooks is not that great. Defensively he's he's okay. He doesn't have big range to his left I've noticed that all season long have been complain about it David so. Maybe Bogart's over there at third base is the better move right now and just keep Gomes in the lineup too because he's your good luck charm. -- -- have one more thing about this sort of the second and -- and it would -- 12. Second and I. One thing to be questionable. At got to bring it. It was a bunch of is that none not pleasant but is this your ammo -- don't know -- Let me run the ready in the net Ellsbury has -- between victory -- corporate sector went to vote in -- that both for the kill right there with a double dale. That's second third and then he has that single about it in five months. As -- how many -- rather than it too well okay that's why you don't do. May you got a man in scoring position you don't try to steal third. Because the old adage applies even -- base runners in -- make the first or third out at third base in Beijing and at that point to. Of below is still in the game is pretty good throw on our runners. Oh no I don't think who's gonna throw runners you might be at third base I mean not no actually he had. He's been you know third Big Easy is the better defensive catchers and he had he has struggled at times -- on he got it was 70% but still. At that point right yes ass -- and you know it is blue with Ellsbury I mean anything. It by perjury victory don't even have to challenge school yet I can I'd rather count on Pretoria for single income on the double steal the work there and it has received third base. You know in that in this situation I mean I don't know double steal that's not that's not remove -- Orlando's in Boston Orlando go. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But no abortion should doubt UB JD. -- brought -- I must say personal respect horrible. The lady has ever. He's been terrible to -- it -- a list of 45 guys who you can't believe how bad it looks like a glaze cius last year at the plate right now -- into an extra. Our blocks I would put middle Brooks. I yeah I like -- are walking or riding in the back. Right will be better and I electing an in depth on it. Well it's it's -- it's not even about the park at that point Orlando because he's not even -- -- solid contact it's not like he's come and. -- don't even know I know but immediately went. Herbert -- and shortstop vs third base for these two guys know Andrew's brother Steven. Nancy Drew has had a -- will be one of the worst series ever seen the play with -- all the strikeouts elect got you right. But if you're gonna ordinaries say middle Brooks at third. They're either broke her face right east because that's where the tigers are there already tonight you put -- about a third of Bogart's it short and take out Stephen Drew oh. You know you -- original against the percentages on two to differ. Levels while he did have one key play that I drew. In the field an -- and what went -- Orlando heated up in the field -- -- -- -- throw on a double play. Those about it. Okay. -- there don't know he did that was -- -- -- -- key pivotal play that -- of the errant throw to second base hi Lester as usual if you watch cholesterol season is tough time to debate by the way that slit throat and Napoli beat -- made a great play and that -- yes restaurant first base he just barely yeah that runner that was being. Had a better chance so what do we know we're actually occurred in standards to a -- -- -- you -- But he won't do they won't do that I expect. All I know I. I think it's more defense. And as what you think true it what it but yes he's he's. He just -- -- Syria not spectacular but he's very steady -- He's pretty good and he's got beat the. I think that our I've just mutual of that because I think that the double play. I would to develop liquid. Now all of that I -- yeah I think it's pretty -- bottom line early and he can't stand this gag is last name's drew back half as -- -- -- -- to come across the bag normally on throws from Pedroia. And so a double play ball pickle for 63 I mean I think that's that's part of -- well. Now do I like him in the lineup now because we're receiving now it's almost like you wanna see the pitcher company had he been that bad. And he is streaky too the Red Sox have three or four guys are buried Verisign idea I picture is still there at short minded bloggers remains at through this is to guessing so -- I think so too. Six point 77797937. We get the real hardcore baseball fans all over knowing -- and the country. -- listening tonight after an exciting Red Sox 43 win where Koji did it again. He's just an unbelievable zero walks eleven strikeouts in the post season and as I mentioned earlier writer. The greatest season ever better than Mario has been a season I mean look -- it sounds absurd but when you look at the numbers anywhere any use your eyesight now we have watched full seasons of -- -- I think people are getting confused as they typically do that especially when it's something you against the Yankees it's it's. You time loaded individual season and by the way in the same breath I'm saying that Mariano Rivera was the greatest closer in the history of baseball what in attendance and on -- -- -- -- obvious said to him as a earning higher compliment I can pay -- -- They're the greatest that ever lived for God's sake okay Lou in Jamaica Plain. -- and Hyde Park and all of view it's 617779797. We come back. On the Red Sox review. Washington pretty good wondered. His double single and struck down he turns the bond dropped to down to third Cabrera is up Clooney is one played first base. He gets there and racing and a third of Mel Brooks bill providing. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- In them all we wanna go with a defense of replacement just because of the familiarity to position him with middle ropes. Eight innings you know after the sack bunt and again we talked to a base running just a heads up play a -- which is Smart to go from first to third on the sac bunt. -- -- -- -- We're live in Brighton Massachusetts where sometime tonight not here in Brighton but in Boston the plane landed the -- such organ on the big day off tomorrow and get ready for Saturday baseball and we don't know right now what time the game is yet. Actually -- tomorrow. When we have tomorrow Rory is today's for a priority but what -- what you like and I just Texas and -- is it but I'm Willie I I usually don't say it's you know. The next day Jake had to about 4 AM is it is Friday morning right now as we speak and -- nightly you know nice technically. Ted Knight -- technically at 6 o'clock. We will have the planet Mikey show leading up to the Dodgers cardinals elders titled why -- have. From the Charley horse in West Bridgewater where we would like to invite all you folks stop down Washington dodger cardinal -- radios you wanna watch and their millions of TV's. Related bolstering -- drink some Beers as a planet Mikey show goes live from that Charlie horse where I've been many times I really enjoy myself when I go there. In West Bridgewater 6 o'clock -- -- for dinner yet you know these -- wings you know what I heard Michael Holley says this to me once that they -- and it's. Near me have been there before I haven't added yet but then they have a great bison burger from what I hear yes and I'm gonna have one tomorrow bison. I do I love love love -- -- buffalo resorted to -- devices. You know. And all those big game animals attack. We have Jamaica Plain are you happy -- that's my question you. Turn your radio down. They got it right on exaggerating a down -- thank you sir how -- -- de Melo might expect a all the I'm glad I'm hope you have a good night of big Red Sox -- -- one. Almost die hard man I'm a die hard spam that if -- -- -- -- to gain. -- cab drivers. On and rattled mine. Are. Has got to be fun area -- any weird stories from the back here -- are reporting. This really just want you know local making them back seat. At about it -- his -- -- kids cinema in the air. And so what else is out. Let the man home it was great went to my man autumn. Outlook -- RO. I like to see him you know to pay generally -- and -- and little I don't eat it. I'm and so got a little bit but I want seemed -- commit a little bit more or being -- I would look to -- ample Bogart a source. Tool. Two other women you eat enough. Yeah the question would be for me because you know we gonna have a tight it's game where you want your shortstop defense to be kind of a well oiled machine. I know. But who hasn't -- -- -- play all all they're now yeah you you're looking to more of the plate yet either have that one Arab IDC said a couple of solid defensive plays on that Prince Fielder yeah pop up tonight it's the the reason why I watched oh yeah shortstop -- deployment tool -- Willis and pulled the real down eight spot on the right. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Ultimately whatever way I just like to people like and who -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The ballot if you follow Obama spot and bright man so let's talk to art AD any. Let me ask you this. Have you ever had anybody that you liked in your whole life because like I can't say that I have that was named Austin. You know -- never met anyone who detonated a technical but it's like the worst they've. -- well this is my friend Austin lab. I don't -- in Austin healing and when I hope your book that they've caused an arm has to be priests say that low pay have a good night event. You. Could all lowdown in Jamaica Plain. The rents are I really haven't ever met anyone with a name my. Austin American ever there have you well that was an attorney general in Connecticut named Austin would -- and I believe. But I didn't really -- read about it in the newspaper no you're right I don't think government were named Austin either. This this whole this quick discussion we've been having about Mariano and coach these years are you know -- and I got to finish but as Texas is known as confused. May be -- had a better half season in Mo give you that it. Pitching half the season in the seventh and eight Denny's does a -- he had 21 saves he had thirteen holds. -- -- -- -- one point nine he pitch enough innings to be considered along with any closer to major 174 warnings now. He struck a 101. Guy it's. And what was the walks. I Italy at nine but he puts up more in the first half of the season over that somehow it doesn't matter when they were at nine walks and a 101 strikeouts. In 73 games he had nine walk every six games. Coach you know every seven Harlem what's nine times. What is don't ask me what's so math quiz he had nine walks nine rosary every eight games. Coach you would walk one guy. He c'mon man Dave's in west and hello David. Hey -- like went up OK here we go by that this statement is so happy right now. I got a book report sort of things as well throw it'll be quick and the relative figured out okay. Number -- I -- called a couple of years ago I don't know -- but you know taken a little bit of the credit here. That I thought the -- that lead this team unity thing with people for days at the mustaches. As suggested -- I think it just appeared but I don't play with in the direction of team unity. No I you know it's funny I remember your conversation that you were oddly you suggested they'll have nipple rings -- that's right yeah well whatever. OK so just to set the record straight that's. That's what I think the thing is also real quick to meet at -- artists. Does Ferrell kinda reminds me of Darryl Johnson a little bit. House so stoic you played the Wendy's but that will look -- -- that title -- maybe that is extreme but he like you know what the next generation there'll. Yep well I mean -- ever a member Gerald Johnson pretty well. As manager of the Red Sox and you can tell is better is probably space and went and as a manager said point five -- Johnson was. You know he he he just kind. I initially was a big. Tactician when it comes to you know strategist when it comes to the game. He had a bunch of good players he becomes okay get out there and swing away boys but I mean not to knock the guy he did win American league championship. But I think John Ferrell has Lama go and I'm not just talk and information we technologically. Right. And and more certainly better with a pitching staff because of all of his spears is a particular. They've dealt with it and let the at least. Well too quickly what is -- anybody who knows that you restart unit and other guys over the total loser and become what -- that assists as the coolest. All the media guys in New Hampshire right and yet he was that he was -- and he -- I've never have fun for the rest of his life because he's -- nothing but -- dukes right. He calls up to crap on a song you know look you admitted that he hangs up right at people that hang up there already. You know real. Real light weights because they can't even finish the conversation they're afraid to they hang out and -- were astute. But as that but anyway here we go -- and at least that wrote that so before but the whole idea okay. I just wanna thank you for your passion for the rest as I you'll really has what to do with this season. About -- -- inspire anybody but I tell you what it is my favorite sport and you know I love all sports very much but baseball's always been my favorite night. Really have enjoyed this year a lot and I was telling a writer in the -- we're going out to check the weather forecast. That this team is a very lovable team. There's nobody I can pick out and nobody nobody else. On the TV just don't like you know and it hasn't complaints here there'll poppy this party look this is a very very personality wise a team you couldn't. If you don't hit your card too and and feel real good about like an element being fans of there's. -- -- A price data I want to thank you Mike yesterday or today I think -- -- inspiration well no I think -- be -- -- -- enough and I agree if you think your time I really don't. But it's it's been very enjoyable year and he's that is partially to do a due to the fact that. We were so -- Suffering last year through this -- only thing I remember that that you have that we most I think most it would been reasonably happy with a team that. One a lot more than they lost and you know playoffs and -- -- this is like -- all bonus but are no question everything's like bonus money were playing announcement. Let's we enough callers because who do we can use a couple more to get this through for another ten minutes so we're gonna take a break. Where hero to Clark John Ryder Mikey -- it's the road to redemption Red Sox review ray -- Use the 31 pitch. Swing and Heidi drive -- away senator racing Bennett Jackson turning and this is I'm. And any minute time and not many of the Berman a Red Sox lead and won enough -- Mike Napoli just destroyed one -- the -- money that's probably 450. At least we'll the second -- the horse out there yanks. I think it is to the -- it's shaved in a forest out there she wanted to -- -- neighborhood off Forrest out there shaved it and that. That Boston strike shaved and Ed Burns gave an outfield grass. We have it just moments ago on the program I -- our borders were excited because it's going to be baseball not today weakness. Today is Friday it'll be tomorrow Saturday. At Fenway Park we don't win because it's really it is writer tells me earlier it depends on what the Dodgers do tomorrow night yes. If the Dodgers win and forcing game seven the Red Sox will play at 4 o'clock right if the Dodgers lose and it's the cardinals then the Red Sox would get bumped into the prime time exactly 8 o'clock PM. But either way baseball fed way to clinching party may be going on. Depending you know scherzer. By the way. I didn't I was tweeting about this guy you know -- cute kids and you know there's no it's not a kid and I can't stand and you know he has won -- lie and didn't round how did you not know I don't at all. I really -- and I never noticed that really in all is David talking about it so much in all it even during the season armies of the funny thing is got a second brown I would know what overseas. I'll raise it Rhode Island hello -- Hidden. Morning guys ray Howard you know. The debt. Like a good -- you're our plants and that's one. That they actually area. All based on what you see now would not put the emotion of it but we have summoned back then when might we. Not right now. I've heard this question before -- because people always for some reason to Boston. New England always concerned about what's gonna happen after. After the I can't get past. October 31 which would be game seven of the World Series if there would be going to seven games well. I ticket past Halloween and think about one -- very. His contract who's gonna be bat I was gonna get what I. Yeah elves are well I'd love to hell -- I'll I'll just give McCourt Ellsbury is the big one and Napoli is a free agent drew is a free agent is close loser. Kind of -- three right there. Lester I think they'll pick up as options obviously that's a that's a no brainer so I just can easily put my head and a spot where I care Monday yet in -- was due to be a free agent but he. Get his performance bonus were shocked -- prediction was a good thing. Very good thing here love Koji 38 years old now he's listed at 62190. Miles cannot -- on. He can't be over six feet now. And but I have to tell you laid out one number five there's no he's my favorite Red Sox closer cystic Raddatz. -- -- -- -- -- -- I mean this is this is -- called him the little monster and and I absolutely love the guy. I follow on Twitter. He -- something to Japanese I read -- even though I don't have any idea what he says he could be talking about the fooled at some restaurant he went to last night and we care. Because if he's saying that I'm listening you know he's still on board -- witness that he's been wearing Cuomo knows to these post game shows it. And notions well I mean an end and I doubt I'd be a little bit maybe a little too much when you were talent you know the -- the bosses that you wanted. Rice paper from the walls are necessary because I've heard that coach -- rule will run through. Paper walls for year to win a ball game minute and I'm so excited now they're gonna leave you tonight writer because organizers and -- -- in the -- morning. Gonna leave you with some sound out of the Red Sox locker room from tonight's. Offensive hero for terrorism. Which is Mike Napoli and -- did you -- good evening.

Gone up to China used tough event every time I guess it is I can handle and horrible job. Make over the offseason -- and uncertainty you know physical problems that came up.

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.
