This -- the Red Sox review on the WEEI Sports Radio network. 67 right hander Wainwright delivers. It's. Yeah OK. Okay. It's a rekindle a World Series game number one between the Red Sox and Cardinals. Beasley did -- want I had deep right center field back but the -- haven't been at -- did it on. A two run homer but there aren't. That's not. The nice thing and -- and where the pitchers in the right. That I think bonds. Red Sox review with Mikey Evans in John Rheinecker. And Stewart loved to finish it off with a strike down. The bearded lady flyers. Well. If not and the Red Sox win yeah. World Series they still one of the Cardinals they have three more wins this new world champs. Now Mikey Adams and John Ryder with Red Sox review on the WEEI Sports Radio network. He's going to be -- that make its way all the way from. That way probably to the studios to Fenway Park where that places that he. All around the building people happy dance and sing and scream and drink and everything you wanna do. Out of it whether it's -- win game one of the World Series. It got this is this game was over early. And I hate to say it was very enjoyable people watched the whole game but did this game was a a game that really kind of went down the first inning you know via but he reversed call by the umpire. A three nothing lead and from that -- -- -- and electorate such loses game and indeed they did not winning 821 RB before we get any further to the program. There are doing us a press conference is right now and when he pitched for the game Jon Lester at podiums during that right now -- -- You get a little bit of -- -- what what does that do for you tonight what. Pitching from really a lead the entire way while I think. You and you can go -- -- with -- I think you can kind of let your guard down take a deep breath and go OK we got the lead and not really pay attention to the next inning this time a year you really have to. Think about winning each inning and once we scored in the first to go out there. You gotta you gotta win that inning you gotta you gotta put a zero up give these guys back in the dug out get them up to the to the batter's box. And you know we -- able to do that and we ended up score a few more runs in. You know speak first brush against a pitcher like I don't know there. I have to question boring. Job Mike's come up with some big hits you guys flailing. Any of those three run lead in the and the first thing he has talked about it it hits that he'd be able to take to get the guys -- we've been able to do offensively for you. Yeah I mean. It's it's been all season you know he's he's done a great job. You know the thing that that incident has impressed me the most about -- misses that amount of pitches he sees now seems like every time is up there's two to 32. And you know it just gives. I think he gives him the advantage over the pitcher just seen so many pitches and you know he's come up big like you said all year for us and especially here lately against some really good pitchers and to to have him go to get a double right there in the first inning. Score a couple of runs you know David chug around the bases you know it's just fun to see when he when he gets going so. You know us that was just a big momentum change for us right there and like I said to go out there and and get -- -- back in the dugout I think isn't as big. That's question temp job as the season's gone on have done more comfortable with it behind the plate I was that happens and then also -- tyra -- navigated through a lot of that. Yeah I mean obviously. David missing some time you know I think heard a lot of relationships do through the pitching staff you know took some time during spring training -- us. And -- for him to miss some time. I think was rough on him. But ever since he's come back it's it's been a seamless transition from -- saying earlier. For whatever reason you know I mean him kind of fallen into little bit of pattern a little bit of a a routine together and it's worked in. You know just keep grinding it out -- to the end but he's done a great job navigate through lineup tonight you know mixing in. We haven't really gone to the back door cutter a lot lately and you know he saw that it was working their given up on him -- we kept going right after. He did a great job tonight of like you said that game helped me navigate through on. -- my take a few questions thank are thank you. Feel -- yeah. But got the first question right here. Might -- great career World Series numbers. Seems like and you know who is there anything specific you attribute I attribute that to or is it just the way it's worked well. Yeah I think it's just the way it worked out -- mean I -- the stage. You know it's in the spotlight. As I mean I really enjoy this time of the year yes. Series is gone out doing -- job done. -- -- I'm Mike got that call was reversed. The fans are going nuts on and you come up he sees them along with the big if you just talk about seizing the moment there. Yeah I mean -- bases loaded -- -- -- -- vault of an errant outfield -- situation. Conosoga it to good hitters count and you know got a pitch -- and -- -- drive out there on the far left. I you you don't it is an extra motivation and they in the World Series but that does what that would happen in 2011 the Cardinals is that they're playing your mind a little when you're against -- -- -- not really -- The main thing was -- back here now. But I think it's nice you know play against them in Britain through world tentatively from -- But I in his I think -- demanding -- -- -- Turning can tell us about every in my any pitcher. In -- -- and talk about it. At that I'm -- -- game and potentially your theories. The -- been doing all year. It's a big time pitcher we have all the confidence in the world and he's out there's drama on the baseballs. He did a great job tonight earlier in Kabul over runs early and he's settled -- and you know it's it's awesome on the maid park. It was Ernie -- sense of surprise and your part that the call was overturned for you see overturn what that very often and you you really see. Especially. On the stays like this that. Nothing has different game you know if they want to get together and I saw some different and and get it right I think it's. And some should be done all the time but. Yeah I -- of the play -- you know the right column. 219. Standing in the back they can you just talk about how sometimes there's a game where everything goes right for you maybe on the other side there's everything went wrong. Can talk about when when everything is clicking the confidence this team has the importance of getting off to -- -- I'm that they were confident group and no matter what the I think you got to take advantage of the opportunities you get. And a game. We've been able to do all playoffs and analysis that's was about on. A lot of things went right for us the reality of manages opportunities in the we did. One more -- Mike there -- some of us liked -- was streaky hitter but -- come up with some big hits lately. Can you explain why you're feeling so comfortable at the plate and drinking in particular that simply lends to that at this time. I was just trying to do every at bat in. I'm able to forget about. You know that tomorrow and excellent you know. Can do well when you get out -- -- scope there you know have a plan in and trying to excuse this possible and I just. Go there and I'm confident every time I go to -- -- even if -- sort of the last time you know post it on the. Thank you very much. That concludes the interview room for tonight. -- -- -- sets they have -- -- a -- no warning to talk to anybody we know what happened here and that we're fully aware of now's the time where the people who were at the game people watching at home record -- so excited the kids sleep back together hornet join us on the program like from Fenway Park. It's Red Sox review writers on the way down here to join us I guess we're gonna let him in a window. A because the ball parties getting all closed up will be -- to clock the number 617779. 7937. And you can also text as well because we do have a totally cool text -- down here it's actually functional. I even more so the -- the studio is sometimes. Again the Red Sox would much corporate won that first inning and the big hit use her Mike Napoli at the podium. Napoli with the big hit a lot of guys concerned about giving the Tigers series. Very good at that blast but you know a lot of strikeouts has all the Red Sox had not so tonight it was really kind of a calm relaxing thing -- the first inning and Red Sox got three runs. Right away how to reverse -- park call. And it put the runs up on the board and that's all good is from thereon I see the game as they said. Pretty much over what they -- to five nothing it stayed that way for a long long time till popping at the two run home run the bottom of the seventh inning. Which is kind of a cherry on top of the Sunday the Red Sox at a run and then of course at the Cardinals -- get a run off Dempster in that it would -- so what type of run. Off Dempster late in this game in which is meeting was in -- final 821 game one is in the books on this October 23. -- together number 6177797. 937. I've got to take your calls to 2 o'clock in the morning we'd love to hear from -- your thoughts on this game your thoughts on -- I've -- -- for people who leave the ballpark tonight. Some people talking sweep and -- kind of asking me go along with a -- that I'm not sure that I. I can go that far yet. I predicted a six game. Series tonight of course was you know a huge moment it was said the Boston's strong moment the military -- yes throwing out the first pitch. -- poppy -- a legendary it is in these parts superhero type guy. Driving in a run with a sacrifice fly tonight and also the two run home run. And the big played second base and you don't say what you will about. Umpires reversing their calls and a Johnny -- was talking about it as those kind of a stupid thing but you gotta get it right you gotta get a -- with a whole world's watching. I needs the World Series for God's sake that ball never hit the guys every never win the guy's glove you gotta have to trawler that they're to be an out called second base and he never did. So that was really kind of what's at the pace this game. And they -- Red Sox win we're gonna start would chip in Peabody Jim. You are the very first caller on this Red Sox review show chipped. They might play you know good buddies. Like if that umpire and actually help that call stood. Well because there would be -- -- -- inaudible they get to all the umpires together. And talking about it and by the way five out of six of them thought it was of a blown call so you know they got straight. That I was going to because -- that if he had that well and -- he had actually helpful them to change that call right. Need those umpires to -- some -- well you know you can almost hear what they were saying you know unfortunately they will always knew there was something as simple that we might cut that he. At something out of someone. Well everybody started throw believed fit and you know that's what's gonna happen in that situation than normally if if he had enough support from the other umpires maybe it would have been. It would have been reversed for what we had there was a classic case of the of the umpires getting together and doing the right thing now this has happened the Red Sox before the World Series. But know what's gonna are really bitch about it when you get down the final analysis. The right call was made justice was served. Yeah that -- is -- going -- that this could distinct gone to -- -- Series get away and has no way to got a focus and they were going to be the world champs what is that like. -- -- Of course I think we're going to be the world champs you know I've thought that all along you by the way Jim years -- to acquire when it comes to have a faith in this Red Sox team I had faith in this team. For April. On and I feel justified that now especially now seeded -- kind of walking out of here and com happy fashion. Liked like this was almost expected this whole lot of success ratio of it that. -- one less than an illegal move that -- kind of like my gazette but 232 format isn't fair because. If if you have the whole feel of -- -- what you have to put up fifteen when the other team. Feel -- it was there which it would change I don't know what you wanna play again I'll facility up the offense normally -- okay. I -- thank you that the key to that is this. Way to attack and we -- -- is that neither is it be echoing -- -- -- -- atop Mount Everest or what. The 232 format has always been there. It's something it doesn't change now you figure home field advantage you get the 21 two of the last two. I mean what more can you want you don't want the team to have to make two trips up to a afar we sound terribly good at 2221. Series. At doesn't make any sense. It's didn't. All part of baseball forever so I'm not for changing that I think that's the way it should be one trip. To the visitors park is enough and the Red Sox for the home team about who it is it's the first two cracks at it. To go on the road with a couple wins under development that's exactly -- as things don't turn out. Let's see we take him in order on this program so let's go to new. -- In a -- nick your next. Hey -- good. -- -- -- -- good look at it you know it's very fortunate enough yet at the in -- And I would -- the grandstand and there and keep it on the cheap. I don't think there's any cheap seats for the World Series men aboard about it where you're sitting this. Grant green and -- on the right field side. Under the roof. We and -- get that out of the I was I was so grateful. And honestly. Like less about it that up with a curtain and and you know at reading that it it outbreak hit it. It's not very. And -- get the bases loaded and Napoli or everybody in that double yeah. Everyone around me -- a hat that had a feeling all right game over the next inning. We scored more. -- like it's easy it's easy and from that point not everybody is a great mood. Everything was on our way now. That way to -- it -- -- I've never seen anything like it as far as just the overall -- ballpark in -- I said the Sicilian takes the tension out of your -- ballpark experience what it's not a grinding. You know 22 game in the eighth inning when the Red Sox jump out to a lead like that and you're right that was a -- settled in over the ballpark. -- they were still excited excited to be here cheering for stuff but. It was like everybody felt so good about what the outcome of tonight's game is going to be that they -- obviously have never seen more smiling people Fenway in my whole life. Let's break it obviously I mean it's. My first World Series which I'm sure it was for many people and I couldn't imagine a better scenario like I -- little nervous about the matchup. Or hand you know Cardinals -- tough game but after that first inning I just relaxed and it. Bunch of saluted a bunch of beer and just really enjoyed myself quite a bit and I I -- sort of a bad that every game. Well you never forget World Series games you go to I mean -- -- it was my it was so long ago man it was like you know yankees Cardinals in the sixties and I was it's a little -- -- But I effort I don't I don't forget any of the things that happened during that game. It's stuck in my head for a forever because it's it's it's not just a game it's a World Series it's part of history. That that's why that is or are -- years that this -- now I'm ready at a good time spent all right nick. That's nick chicken and this we also have thought of fill in -- bridge and a standing by hello Phil how -- you don't. But pretty good about it or I can be better right now great where there are running great -- over under currently walker. -- too optimistic well get off -- glad you said that because a lot of people right now are in the tendency is for people to fuel we you'll. Hockey after an 821 victory in game one. But I'm gonna tell you that there's this cardinal team that's tough for them they looked tonight. Their defense is normally stellar and what we -- from that tonight was on the sloppy side so look for them to get over their jitters tomorrow -- a tougher game. I still expect the Red Sox to win tomorrow despite the fact the -- is on the hill but don't don't think the Cardinals are gonna go away without a fight. Rather not but Mike Garrett also have a radio program and complain what's that. What about earmarked rich civilization -- it clearly is one of three point -- yeah. And world report itself and pick up the nationals -- -- -- up. You guys who are loyal to and you know. Right well -- national -- is on those stations for off for one reason one reason only it's a Major League Baseball thing. It has to do with there are rights. To the broadcast and of course our home -- 937 has the Red Sox broadcast rights is most people know. But the the good news visit at least you're able to get some feed of the game and by the way what we're strong a team Vito. Or that -- operate I. Will work that we don't have your work. I -- lift some sort of look sort of game. What kind of went -- number very some positions where the heck happened out outlets superstition -- -- good you know. And change the power line was he the -- guys on the radio Cordoba in that. Good stories popping up from all over New England of people used to listening to Joseph and David look and we all love Joseph David and that's kind of that makes you feel more home because those -- you use to describe your Red Sox action but. In no way is it WEEI his choice. To have the network -- it's a Major League Baseball decision much like the credentials and everything else the whole ballpark is taken over by the Major League Baseball group. And there's not much that the Red Sox or or EE IA president he can do about it so so little period -- one -- reporting there will be well it if that's right if that's with a when you're listening to him was you get 937 there's always going to be. Are they get around and there are marquee about -- it's tough I know it's tough to deal with a -- 81 win here Phil will get by. Our thanks for the call. Six front 77797937. We got full lives have given a number out anyway matches one line openness to want filters vacated. A we'd love to hear from all of you wherever you are wherever you're going whatever you do it. On the way home from the game. Or going from somewhere Rosa somewhere else ever had after having watched the game again Riders can rejoice a few minutes. What are you from every single hardcore baseball fans they can get through to the program tonight. On Red Sox review live from Fenway will be right back. What it is I tell you what it is. It's one nothing three more victories in a Red Sox will be the world champions now. Or writer and I both know you know been around long enough to know that this this cardinal team is not gonna just. Results under the press wouldn't think -- other good out of Saint Louis. At a gonna throw work three games tested voters have to see what happens but. Did his I don't think as anybody that thinks a -- card is gonna lose every game by seven runs or be totally dominated the Red Sox tonight different. Opening game. Boston's strong. The -- of the military's here yes throws out the first ball the fans are excited Red Sox get three runs in the first inning and guess what. The of momentum was clearly there's. And I don't know if there's anything that I kinda Isiah. Okay a couple of line right now I have spent two drunk guys outside the Leno asked god how much -- don't window yet rule. -- You know it's -- against god and thank god has bulletproof glass and like right now and that's probably the first time to -- -- Let's go to rob Bob and Brockton Obama. -- -- You know here are good what's up. -- it and actually called bill and -- politics as usual crap rob Williams a party should. It sucks it is or if they're. -- -- and just a couple of tropical not a particularly great Europe. He. Look -- it in expecting. Shortstop. Actually. And probably looking at the base and defeat of this of the shortstop as opposed to the globe because on that play. It's the pick it up the government not try to avoid the neighborhood call you know networks. That's probably where he was looking -- -- look at Dowd didn't see exactly how leftist love needs assumed it was on the -- transfer exactly yeah and you can assume that. You know quite because of that that professionalism of these players on him as a rule that ball is not -- And if it is it's -- -- -- and -- reputation to book -- was in there and operas Bedford school. On line -- it's Peter in Falmouth hello Peter. Did and I might how that he had he been happy right now Peter. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- is it you know like and think you know all about -- actually thought. All altered from him. Are like socially. Okay that that's want to -- it's only -- -- -- woke up or near Iraq now sponsor that came Lions note that it's yours you'd be surprised at how many women have -- because of a -- tile dysfunction dwell on what what does that say WP. I think that. My name's Brett and I say that then. Yeah. I mean you know you're the guy was name's Peter. Learn all the more reps so wise so so what do you think -- now what do you think as you think is going to be six games -- these before me how you feel about after what happened tonight. You know. It's one game you know keep going back to caramel -- Don't count out you know it's well you know much about we gotta win the next game. Well it's it's a far stretch I think to try to imagine that any ball club. Is going to be able to matchup with the Red Sox accomplish in 04 after losing three straight games of the Yankees and it might await game three they lost by eleven runs. You know so I mean that's a -- demoralizing. It's a comeback from that you really got to climb to climb out of a hole -- climb the top of the mountain and that's what they did. I don't think any teams ever -- duplicate that. And in the Cardinals that season won over a hundred games good but this is this Cardinals team much like the Red Sox has been very resilient him. Putting a loss behind them -- we think about the Mets were the Mets play the Red Sox in 86 -- they were they were two to 108 games. And -- they almost they came within a whisker -- a miracle of losing in game six. Themselves so it's it's not even about the regular season record. It's about the constitution of a team as they stand right now if Beltran is out. Beltran for the rest of the series and then their sets huge you know look what that did to the Dodgers in Hanley Ramirez and -- Belcher on such a force in the post season. That's big and don't forget. These guys like everyone talks about their character. I mean it's a veteran. Which to which team coincides Ressa rook yeah well I yeah I mean it's not. There are better -- support her as a veteran presence on the Red Sox. But they also have a useful. Element to them -- a youthful exuberance. Of don't most the guys that are on this team work here beat last time the Red Sox played the world. -- most is he noted that yeah most of these red sex players do have post season experts been on a World Series experts most of Duke Cardinals added depth clear especially your bullpen. And really three of their starters all rookies -- they do have. Some veterans out -- in the field including freeze won a MVP World Series you know and and -- -- -- is it the transfer between the nationally the American team is taking nothing away from. Wainwright who's who's been. Reputed to have tremendous stuff all year long and you are into three -- National League ERA under three it's a little bit of a different story. It's not just about facing the pitchers but it's the way the whole game is played the National League and to come to Fenway Park. Game one of a World Series with this entire theme of Boston's spur strong going on it's it's shaved into the grass etc. we know that from Dave O'Brien and you get the wall right there over your right shoulder it's a little bit more. I'm sure intimidating. That it is in any of the prior games you play during the yeah I wouldn't think. That I wonder -- grow. Are anxious. And objectives more. The deck chair her. They do. Veteran leadership certain pitcher David Ortiz and then you bring all the other guys and but like these guys became and they were Shell shocked from our. Ops are. Saint -- They are a little bit -- the jitters I think you see a different team ball. Well. Bottom line is. Those socks -- the dugout and you know that it gave rookies are just a pejorative on that on one game that's one game. Not a very good at that. The very good at it and and they love playing here at Fenway there's no question about it destroyed sixteen I wouldn't think that would rattle Wainwright. Pitching here I won I wondered about -- Tomorrow night if our rattle him now so I think a year afterwards -- Wainwright had to say because is a tremendous curve -- Mikey. Was the that is in this cold weather we've heard so many times from pitchers I know that the off speed stuff kind of lose in the field for in the -- was. -- -- and because there at you that's a touch thing and him and if you if your fingers are slightly numb or not moist enough for whatever they can have an effect. Some of especially -- these guys have Andy you know unity they gonna try to control one or the other but it's the breaking ball reversed that ago in the cold weather no question about it. A we have text message is coming at 37. And -- a guy here who says that. Just move it down and bit. It's just adjusting John because this guy says he saw three. Scantily clad women chasing you down yawkey way yelling. -- the radio show -- party with us ever do that really happening yours and that was last night there was less talk. This is how -- -- loses the sound like something something might of made up along the way somewhere let's go to Bob. Bob upside up Bob next -- after this call Joseph in California who's been on the -- the -- and in fairness but it's what we always do. We make sure that beat people are taken in order first come first serve that's only fair. Joseph and California. Maybe we shouldn't have gone real joke that the I had no. Yeah I've been hit until I also play and it's only 8 o'clock yes yes it's early there yet you did 10 o'clock in California junior lightweight. I'll tell -- what. Can't fall asleep after that what a great when he went out to a popular city and we're in the Bay Area. Matt my friends one of whom live in Boston with me when my like I look back important out here. Went to -- all the Connecticut Yankee. Run by you guys who left Boston 88. Moved out here are the barn it's the Red Sox are they call that Connecticut Yankee but there Red Sox fans I don't -- I ironic I. Really weird how they do in the winter. I don't know what they do and why I Putin that the guide dogs -- But I'm it was just perfect great way to start which friends. Camped there in person so it's meant that they want some extreme in what they -- after the first inning like he exactly. The same feeling it's like. Almost certain -- we're in control. Yeah yeah. -- you know what's what the oddest thing about it Joseph is that for some reason. The ALCS. Always seems to be more of a sticking point oh or more of a tight. Tense series I'm not just talk about 0:4 and 0:7 am talk but even this year you talk with the Tigers Syria they were were top that was a nail biting took the court it was not what -- bitten in the entire. On par no I I don't like I'd died and it absolutely intact. I think this but it it was such a great game for a short and that. After they outscored garlic or. Or what the Hispanic. Actually almost boring for compliment. And I keep saying that because I don't want to be any higher want them to be winning by that but it really couldn't hold our attention well they started doing something again later. No it -- should really be Tyco weren't Lester will be Lester shut him down that they score those three right he had 4123. Innings tonight might be right in and I felt after that. After that Napoli double even though it's only three run game I was like all right. I felt pretty good about it this president and and they added to an all right and the way Lester was going with a cutter and I'm like candidate Cardinals are. You get to their ace for five runs in the first two innings I guess everybody can relax at least a little bit and most people the ballpark did I went outside the street. You know waited and -- a special smoking area on yawkey way were you know like really it's like a leopard I don't know anybody you got to be -- lawyer Beatles -- it out there now that's not a very good nor Els. So I doubt have to admit that's -- bit TV's brother. He does have a but in there. But it the idea is that people or so com. That they were able to say I've let's go have a cigarette you like after I -- -- to have sex only have a cigarette afterwards Sunday it was like kind of a nice feeling for people get a -- beside Jim -- out there. I think it's a -- 11 thing I just don't really -- and go with that hole on. Episode with the changing of the ultimate call clearly. In a replay on television it was all a place there was no question about it. But I love the fact that -- at least I don't know if you saw that you could hear this on the broadcast Liu where you guys. But they had audio but it might umpires. And they edit it down and that he gave you -- later yeah her and what are higher sent to the guy and I thought I was -- to -- -- five over so we are all a 100% sure yeah and we just want to get it right. Put into that put the whole thing to bed not I -- -- had to -- argue Terrell had to come out -- argue first because obviously it was a wrong call. How big -- gets out there they change it now but he has come out there. And are you even though he probably easier to -- right but he asked him that's his job yes stick up for his players. Yeah I think they said that is saying something along the lines of well if you're gonna overturn that one other thing the league and overturn that Syracuse at -- make a symbolic protest. Of the process -- the potential that could argue the call. Know -- at the bit again whoever argues that call Eric do you part of made it called incorrectly thought fights for his stance is ground he's gonna look like it shark once he goes home and watch the game on -- importantly -- -- replay it is. So everybody did the right thing there and it ate it stunk for second for some enormous -- for somebody -- the call is made wrong and it but it stopped talk about it but. Any final analysis nobody can argue with the results. Well guys love this show love that you guys take it. Seriously can't take it felt -- heartedly which is really on the listen to a just grateful we had a good game one and as -- -- it might be I actually do wanted to go six to seven so we can win back and bought. That's what I've been saying II I I don't wanna sit through losses that may get close 32 series or whatever it because nobody likes to have the attention of their lives. On the other hand I really do crave a clinch party in Boston in this ballpark so that all the fans who haven't seen that happens it's 1918. And by the way whose lives. There was a -- in 98 my grandmother yeah how old's your grammar and she's over a hundred she's really yeah. Why should get her down here Saturday at the food -- -- maybe she can join us on this show. Now aren't great and what -- did it. Happen that on Halloween right now there will be. You -- Vegas telling. Well yeah. Well we won't see event. But you don't want to a Halloween night I you have to take kids out trick retreating that's why did for the war first time in my life from thankful it's 807 start. If it does go to game seven because. I don't wanna I don't know. Just saw my little kids on Halloween by deputy were taken trick or treating its cycle and it's not point seven Mike you Red -- -- -- no question you right at the accurate about that 617779. 797. We welcome Red Sox fans from all over New England. All six New England states we know or all into this -- broadcasting across going and as we always do. We'd sure love to hear -- we got some real hot girls outside the window out. Thumbs up it was that easy get the thumbs up from hot women -- got there industry wet yet. I wanna thank you for that. We did it take your calls into text messages beat writer. Up till 2 o'clock in the morning right now let's take a short break and we'll get right back to the -- live from Fenway Park. -- the 22. Swing popped him up on the infield round pitchers not only to racing to the pitcher's gonna take it. Man of the Cardinals look sloppy. He played for the pitchers and why did it back off. The problem metres to the minute it's up. Wainwright it's stands up and says I got -- I got it and then looks to believe. Then let's back up again lets it drop. I'll come -- so let's not pretend that ever happening you know in Little League. That Cardinals keystone cops so yeah that was left. Again you all you hear about this cardinal teams that they're you know fundamentally sound tonight and I believe they are as a bad night they had is really when we had a good night for the Red Sox did some issues out SNL last night and we do have some issues a little bit in the outfield defensively now Beltran but John -- and holiday at times can be an adventure out there are usually there infield defense is pretty sound Adams at first a little tricky. Yep but that's all over now 821 game one in the books it's history October -- third Torre thirteen Red Sox win game one. On the 24 they were -- game to got a day off Friday. Well have a complete planet Mikey show. Six to -- on Friday evening Saturday down to saint Louis the rest of recruit goes. For some live broadcast pre game down there three games there and -- back and you know again -- -- or is anybody gonna be upset if they sweep of course not. However if it gets and where the point where they they're going to be a game six. Here at Fenway Park and we all hope that's the case we -- we hoping that they -- that's that's the case and they will have a big celebration. The Boston unlike any you've seen. We -- know what duck boat tour after a four that was great but that was on a really cold day well after the fact. Where it if the Red Sox -- the World Series out of this field with 38000 people in the stadium. And everybody all the bars around the ballpark it's gonna be -- -- -- didn't -- riot gear just to keep -- happy people out private polls and but. Unexpected you know you you look back before the season and -- and we know people are sick of hearing about last season but also that the tragic events that happened and April. Exactly and that's really the key assault and that's what the national news angle is on the Boston Red Sox team this year. The national news outlets are saying well remember what happened on April 15 really it's the start of this Red Sox season sword so to speak. You know Patriots day. Marathon day it's a huge day of Boston and everybody refers to that they refer to -- services are bleeping city. And all that and it's cool bits of very cool thing and we as we hear Dave O'Brien mentioned during the broadcast. Bosses strong shaved. It to the grass not able to center field that -- shaped. Up opposite Brockton hit your next on Red Sox review big Bob what do you have. Can isolate -- and they got it got very very popular it will be thinking. In Boston. I don't want more -- stronger aptitude and for sure. Looked up. You don't want to get like -- smoltz a lot of the other national pundits were talking the -- tall grass roots like should be your lead in their -- -- -- -- -- to -- And you don't do very patient -- in before you let people. That he was awful if he pitches. Settle down to that did a good job -- in the bullpen a bit settle down after that but to. Yeah and eat you know you only have one walk this entire post season heading into the -- I know I know it but you know it's it's it's kind of like. When you get in a situation like that it's not even the amount of pitches he has. It's the way you pitch when you have a five run lead for Jon Lester. When you're up five nothing. It changes everything you don't have to be precise but you know you can pitch to this right you could pitch to to put the ball in play. And that's saves. The arm of Lester. And changes his whole approach with each individual hitter again he's not gonna toy around with -- -- always gonna go straight out of him and he only walked one struck out eight he was he uses its predominant as -- always -- Were absolutely dogged -- more experience in it short and right. And and got to take ultimately double steal other's situation because it -- you tonight. I was hit -- friends and agree that it's like you look at I actually don't quite we kind of making me out quite the Sox in the squad game reachable or. I also kicks him to completely sick but -- You know if they didn't get -- -- hard ones and I think they can play right circuit and I hopes Dublin. But that's just like that the European leg -- see what you. Can get to. Yet. Yep right now he's I mean he probably saw it right after the say they're probably showed 34 times on national broadcast. At somebody back there -- backed rule with a videotape was able to show home. I you know. And by the way it's not like he probably didn't know even before he ran out there and argue. That I'm sure it's not a boy we've got to when it happened get away with a one there because from his seat if he saw the ball like nobody else to go off the glove and wasn't watching defeat of the of the infielders Farrell had a perfect view of it. Yeah question. It into. It and you don't want to. I'm able to the same respect that I -- I got you know particularly about the. Well again he's not gonna -- -- his -- we're goat horns because his so it is crewmates bail them out. I really overruling a -- every other one ever went to the umpires was doing the same thing watching the ball. As opposed to defeat of the yes shortstop trying to make the play at second base. So -- it's all straightened out I'm sure they're -- cool -- it and he's not gonna we're goat horns for Everett Everett and tomorrow in the media. A blown call yet but it's up to kind of blown call affected gave so it's not gonna be worn on his face like a let's go to -- Falmouth. Again we we -- so number one in Falmouth and it writers some -- level that is his decision like number one down there -- Mario. Or comment that what are your thoughts. When you round. Mike you mentioned that saint Peter that has called for Belmont. Now we don't know what different people get out -- there could be more than one guy named Pete Falmouth I know it's just you know we're reduced -- repeat. Again and again in the afternoon sometimes just six months -- in the studio I know it's incredible. What's going on it -- Carter won 30 or in the morning there. Wild and Salomon gets a real force. But -- future analogy he'd turn up your radio I appreciate that so the fact that. My dad and I east I problems Framingham the majority most it -- -- -- the Celtics are -- yeah. Sorry I Syria on that one yeah like court or question -- you they are in his. Who's the pitcher. Tomorrow. First -- -- Lockett blocked a walk a walk got dad Michael -- got. Did see it or mr. deer in the headlights turn this thing like I mean penalized got to see. It Pena to close in on him. Yeah and it's it's going to be oh well -- wouldn't rule out the possibility that he gets a little bit freaked out by the situation but on the other hand he's here he comes up with very little experience -- -- was pitching college ball -- less than a year ago. He's gonna come up and he's ready to be one of two kinds of people. -- the guy -- guy that he can be affected by it or the kind of guy who absolutely doesn't give a rat's behind. About these what the scenario is he has self confidence ex -- type. He's shown he can work either way that's what's going to be fascinating about tomorrow night but he's shown so far there NLCS MVP. You almost threw a no hitter in his final game almost threw a no hitter in his first post season start throws about 98 miles per hour and as an unbelievable -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- two pitch -- occasionally throws -- curve ball. But it's just fastball changeup within and his fastball. Can touch you know hi nice straight just straight changeup and fastball yet so it I I it's -- us. You know how many -- positive -- because again as can be a cold night tomorrow and I didn't it will -- -- -- -- Well I mean let's let's face it over the greatest pitchers of all time as sandy Kolb -- a two pitch pitcher. The problem was they couldn't hit either problem because the fastball was so precise where he'd put it. And the speed at which he approached the plate at a curveball is such a twelve to sixer. You sit out either one of what you're going to be embarrassed half the time. Well -- for -- it was the immortal -- well the immortal Nick Punto said after the after the series. The Dodgers Cardinals series that -- Might be the toughest pitcher you ever faced because if you're used to give fastball and you get that changeup advice Burress city's nearly unhittable and you have. At doubted that Nick Punto is not a future hall of not only he's not he's got -- she's not Tony Gwynn at the Sybase big leaguer I mean I'd venture a guess that Nick Punto probably had some tough pitchers it is high school careers -- Because he's Nick Punto must -- at least. Marks in Malden I don't sorry I'm a mark is coming up in -- but reform before we do market mauled and again I try to be equitable here when accompanied when it comes to taking these calls in order -- in. -- Well but. Hey guys -- and I above I'm in Boston and it yeah of course this. You know today I'm -- into. And Cuba that experts and they look and you know Saint Louis it becomes endless amounts that might actually come and gone. Committee Dickenson Willis and -- at the same -- do. President going to be a reason why as well and I did some research and I start and a. -- -- -- seamlessly this year they get a lot of wind but putted it up two teams in each division part of it out against Arizona. Being settled and that it's reinforce and desperate move and recognize and and get some Braves was connected to reinforce. As the Dodgers as an active and we came -- had a winning record it was against Washington. American League but -- Wondered. What it must beat the living crap what everybody else that too in 97 games if you talk about all those teams that losing you know it against who may have losing records. I you know I I I know that they played well when it counts down the stretch when Pittsburgh and Cincinnati and a person right now out in the top central division Saint Louis and emerged on top of that pile and those were all three good baseball clubs. But you which there if orchard given us is correct stats and I believe it is. Then that's enough of a positive. Information for Red Sox fans. You know the reason why I'm thinking you know you hear about it decent not great -- so long -- the amateur compliment and I -- than anything. Boston went in this -- side note -- great -- I think it does have a great night. Actually check it it still meant 617779. 7937. We're gonna get to all your cause I probably should that may be able to south from up. Of the post game press conference as well right now let's take a break live from Fenway Park this is Red Sox review and 67 right hander Wainwright -- swing hasn't. It's. OK okay. It's. May not beat around. It's. It's. Okay. Hours and there. -- there -- -- it that way reiter today and you know and everybody else walking around ballpark. Very very happy you know -- I go way back of the Red Sox as you know but I do I actually got my first press credential for World Series in 1986. -- -- experiences that was. I also went through 88 and nine -- I went to Oakland you know it so you save lives and a trip -- -- I did I did a nice want to be 95 I was there for all the gave me a bit at this ballpark for every single playoff game that happened. Opt for the Red Sox since the eighties it's 86 -- -- play off of onto on saint playoff and World Series right you know ALCS wherever it is. And a bunch of those this one feels this particular series in this particular team. Feel better to meet and all those teams and and you know -- Saints -- the 014 was very special but let's face it nobody felt special bottom when they lost 98 were down three games to none of the ALCS. Every thought oh my god this is the most horrific thing ever received. Until suddenly was flipped around and became the most miraculous thing people ever seen post seven wasn't the same. You know the Rockies had to wait wait wait. And then guess what they get together with the Rockies and sweep the Red Sox have now won nine consecutive World Series games yes that's so insane. It is and I -- -- 04 I think will be. Maybe the most special to ever -- really depends but yeah I don't I meet all four in this in this team is thirteen team if they go on to win the world so are very special -- to -- -- and I know the idiots and 04 and get the beards this season but just. The unexpected nature all for you expected them to be a playoff team that's treacherous ice this year -- many people expect the reds have to be even a playoff team. No and that's what makes is to in this way each team has their own unique personality. And this one here is extremely memorable even though it took -- for people to warm up to or believed they were for real. But that's what makes a great. The Boston strong think ticket and off in April and then the constant growing. The snowball effect of the fan base as they started to believe this team -- it's been a remarkable run and we're not obviously -- and yet and there's a lot more yet to talk about it play. There's going to be anywhere between three and six more games up played before we we finally figure always gonna win this thing but I take it it does feel. It feels pretty good right now and is one game but you know all it. It's kinda. You know all of different did the walk off wins all the come back and victories this team has had this season just you know it galvanized effort and as somebody people compared -- 04 but. I think people right now I was around for a but go to the 67 field because of the unexpected being absolutely immense. And that's why it's hard I mean even though it's hard regularly winning a bad team in 67. As unexpected -- really expected as it was for them to be successful. Was a very very youthful team the manager of that team hall of Famer Dick Williams -- thirty was 37 younger than poppy younger than Koji. You know me and he's -- manager to ride the ever change the ball club was 45. I they had all young guys 432420. This Cardinals the Jazz was the old guy he was 28. Right Metheny is what 44 and most so many guys on this Cardinals team like 2223. But you know. But it was gonna compare. We're gonna grab all these calls us try to rattle off -- these calls is not a good point before we make way for the cleaning people are coming here yes they're vacuums and stuff like that. I would just take -- ball in order 123 Alex -- Boston go. All the -- hi Alex. So I want to talk but with Jon Lester tonight. You know they -- 94 mile per hour perhaps spot and it Schmidt seventies or upper seventies curve ball just -- the table. And then. My big player who has slightly -- fighting for me when the bases loaded and David freezes up yes I was a little concerned about that. I'm wondering. An inexperienced pitchers in that situation. I wonder if they showed the composure. That he shows to. Take -- second and just make that play at home and get that double play. That was the big play of the game for me. That was huge play it when I could believe it you know I think Hudson was fortunate Lester we've seen all of his problems throwing to bases. The -- -- that lob toss to home like news of Forsett on the ended up getting a double play out of it. One thing to watch too with the Cardinals and freeze guys is and he's doing -- -- -- Pretty bad ankle injury right now and at the same player you know you look around that ball club and you say -- they got they don't really have a lot of speed it's not like they're you know -- Molina is is on the chubby side. Our veteran pitchers ever fans -- is relatively slow the first baseman has a low he had JJ you know Robinson's speed that's about it. That's -- but they don't you don't get on base again if you don't -- he can't steal first base at an order get and you know and in this they're -- hard time this Red Sox pitching rotation I got news for you. That's the place I'm most confident is that -- the Red Sox for even if you're talking peavy and a reduced effectiveness Buchholz. They're still. -- difficult guys to contend with in a row with Lester coming back catcher who's been sparkling. On line one market -- and go ahead mark here and next. Maybe guys don't they -- -- up I love you I love you so the restaurant event at Wimbledon all that weight. I'm okay. I'm tired because normally doesn't follow the Red Sox pitcher in this nap while Obama on nine and I did and when was hoping no matter what. You're still remarked I am doing it. That's sure you feel anything else yet he drinks tonight and -- the -- David. No dispute on what they have an Arsenal area tonight symbol that. I -- thank you allow him. Guys you said that thanks a lot I appreciate the love. You know that I talked to go to guy hates my guts -- -- that black guys the exact opposite this guy was a big hole where reefer madness look at -- -- and it's like he walked up to be just for the sole purpose writer telling me he hates me. I haven't had the biggest sign of respect I think I think it's correct I laughed I had left my -- was so funny. -- -- -- -- -- Randy Johnson was it was not just -- look at you -- make fun of him a -- -- looking dude you know it looked like you've had some kind of -- bottoming. Are we going out problems. Shawn -- the car Sean. -- wasn't -- wasn't the sauce look at it. Charlotte's up on top of that continent you're there you go out and out now you we're house he wouldn't do that. It probably. Credit Broadway got report you know you're gonna not say what if you ever had to fight just associate you better have 44 foot arms that dude is a big. Only 611 -- one -- -- -- thought he actually liked that blatant -- dog now he's huge man he's like sixty Andersons even bigger. 611 thing. -- in the John Black belt or double fought and you know -- trouble -- the get out of trouble. Not have been seen recently you're -- He usually struggle. Now they are able to pick out the right trying to get a lot of people there but he may have been great move. A special double play with the guys who I mean I'm about and that's what people are volatile mental about. And second of all. The one thing that people need to really cheer about it but he got it out MIT unique got you under. It surely -- chocolate I read doctor -- what was and that you. All I doubt I doubt bedside since my privilege to really my purpose. Well see you know are right up to that's what happens in the pecking order of radio station okay you get your morning show. -- if you -- -- here afternoons now every getting everybody gets pumped up you know I'm not so sure that it's not just. The guys on the radio station wanting to usurp all the prime time attention. Before the bogeys I don't care because we're a team on this radio station and -- socket and holly wanna go five hours six hours. And totally preempt my sorry yes that's perfectly okay because I. I -- the -- our job Ryder after the game. And I get to hang out Mikey. So lucky that I know trying to hospitals many -- he caught my best let the truck about. Opposite golden. You know like you guys republic together that you are a little let it make it a little let me -- that that. I'm insulated bag Brazil many events that's -- sprinkle in the oregano and look at that. And I shot. -- lady has of the mag wheels on his card and sprinkle Lenny -- is this a little advantage you know -- in Rhode Island next and Red Sox review we're trying to -- -- squeeze these calls and hear Joseph. Bye guys they joke I've -- solid solid win. All across deployed no complaints at all just wanna date I would love to see the Red Sox winning. He then went with -- a -- I think procurement its earliest possible are you don't give them any team. The week gone because you don't want those bats we got. Now I know it's silly it's silly or -- root for as. A six game series just Serena the party here but I still think about it and on the other hand did this Red Sox team won't knows. Especially -- guys have been through before Pedroia. We won't be waiting for you in Boston when you get back if you are so. A adept adept and it should wonderful a team to sweep this. David -- -- it doesn't matter we're gonna wait for you won't -- with a party don't worry guys okay don't worry about it when I'll be here. Right we're gonna party anyway whether it whether it's good what's -- whether it's in Rhode Island. It doesn't matter actually. Until we won it already would I don't know I -- the -- -- dogleg -- -- up a solid wood or -- or maybe we'll have the party -- house I seeks no right. I think the Red Sox party could be all over the country. Because that's the way you would be where it. Part of August 19 and anxiousness. The meant a -- people were happy -- and -- leave this ballpark tonight I talked to -- people you know I stand outside -- walk over his fault all I know -- like I said it every -- the ambassador you really -- I just like I hear from their -- the people you're a man of the people and they're all -- they go -- the -- repairs -- you know all we got there yet and that's all good as -- -- but the problem is it's not over. At tomorrow's going to be a whole other game with a hole two different pitchers I'm confident about Lackey get in there and do you -- deal and his stuff. Against walker. And I I just you know just nothing but positive feelings economy and most fans huge for -- -- out there let's say let's try to grab one or two more before we hit the road here -- it's -- Norwood can't go ahead. And make you -- on on. -- pretty good here. And out well play him a match you earlier today at the in the smoking section. We you do reject TV's brother. Know that I wasn't. Went out and soon with Jarrod Saltalamacchia is cousin that I think yeah I was I was there with them out of out there requested and you said. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yes but that I remember you guys course. I added. That's our guy I called all the time -- and allow calling up. Now about your sister not just as she is a very lovely girl at you know it's funny how every piles that area every was. In that area at the same time because of Red Sox had built that five nothing lead every so I think at the end up I go smoke without missing anything you know. And decadent that take a moment and I play came on about whether they whether. The game was over in the first in the first inning. Now it was a bit the best pitcher -- -- -- but -- let's get that feeling like right now and they're gonna come back rest because the way the three runs and has it turns out those three runs would have held up but you should know that at that time so it didn't take out any of it inside of but I mean I -- out like out in the pocket and people of this you've had a -- like that that like you know because of Nicaragua I'm gonna get done now you commented on are you coming in tomorrow night's game. Did you coming tomorrow night's game. You know what I am actually -- -- -- -- -- are you bringing your sister to be a game six I'm doing it against the clinic reluctant.
