Mustered -- Johnson our number two. Mediated addition. Of mustard and -- Serena take the quality over quantity -- because at 11 o'clock. We're going to the heavy hitters are okay no more fool around -- -- -- light weights so it's big. It is Jerry Kelly and John Dennis Kirk Manning and lives. In Saint Louis at 11 o'clock they'll take you through the afternoon minutes Bradford in -- Alex -- than Dave O'Brien and and Joseph. Is that you know it's like baseball like a Matt -- later when their -- we -- -- or crossover -- if there is a short listened to. Is that show that he. Great night no -- and -- -- John Dennis loves me. They do the right way. Like they sent all these people want to Saint Louis and it really you can't tell whether originally -- talented whether there and say why because -- tomorrow and hit your weather there and lowers -- where they. -- -- Wow it is our rightly attacked tiger attack at the seamer -- that this that. John -- and and do you view and not only that about the game but they talk about saint look exactly the -- -- -- there's so much smoke in this room right now kids yet -- if you look back cracked right I remember how we are you on hold stroke. I just I don't feel less. -- if you listen to this -- this is not just about the game it's about. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I was a surprise to see Craig -- or about yeah. I you are on a roll arms dropped it anyway so apparently according to my sources in other words Larry Johnson. John Dennis accuse me of using illegal substances by claiming. At that Grand Slam against the tigers in game two. Unable able blitzer some demented or -- he's getting on our prayer at the icing on the cake for Ortiz. I'm not sure if he doesn't think the Ortiz should make the hall or. That I don't know already has given points for a -- they don't want they refused that that's not to forward at all they just got to make sure they get the stereo. This bridge stories out there I mean they're gonna watch the game that night from a fourth -- apply because they -- get credentials to get into the game Mac at some violent music I need some sad music for Dennis and Callahan and these poor guys are forced to go out the Saint Louis for World Series. -- welcome -- just advocating quick to credentials -- terrorism. Yes we got to leave time for Adam Myers are gonna have a -- -- X seven text he says before reduce that guys. Fine with -- and -- that would stick withdrew -- so those guys are playing -- I tend to agree -- -- he makes every place supposed to make Ross. However asked the play soft is just overmatched. By good pitching you agree that CM -- -- There is concern I think. The way these games have been played -- as much concerned about the hitting although Ross is hitting -- wait five games. Is I -- the defense in I think controlling. The deep pitching staff I think in terms of going out. As you know the catcher calls out that Varitek was great with that in -- takes control of the situation. With a peavy type like that I just think he's fundamentally. Sound that's what he is and that's what I want right now. Our Ross absolutely asked the places that texture in the final way salty is horrible. Behind the plate and finally another text in the final eight says. If clay -- able to pick the Red Sox. Not that simple words the I want we're we're Reid. If we had not gotten peavy in that trade we wouldn't be where we are. Right now I think PV. As much as people you know but Carl's got her I got the surprise write articles and earning him in the regular season and you're gonna need him tonight if he's not available would you I've I'm much more comfortable -- Jake Peavy in the National League park. Where he's had success in the past been either Felix the -- or Ryan Dempster I'm sorry. This is this movie's gonna pay off tonight it's it's. Amazing drama it really is in if you can be dogmatic about it. I I think you're dogmatic about Lester. I think Lackey now his is is proven the point of winning -- confidence and sense of what he's going to be after that I am unsure. I am I am just I am not sure Bockwoldt. I am not sure with anybody outside the top two when you can say that about a lot of rotation with it to have phones John Blackstone you're first up this hour Sports Radio WEK -- They expect Larry I don't good how are you. Brett you know and Apple Stock of CIL I mind my personal heroes always been Walter White. What bridge argument -- -- -- bet -- won't -- It right at that point of the greatest series I've ever seen breaking. Bad belongs in the same group is sopranos the wire. So why won't anybody large black list has its. It demonstrates that we're all like about what you can't take it you know I don't take any shows and commercials and the final break -- -- can take commercials now. Not only neck cracked the family didn't didn't doubt disappoint you know tidbits and I was like the I held it held its own analogy that's good that you lead I don't. Well hopefully well have a winning finale. With his heroes who plays that went right back to sports and only got two hours -- -- at all at all -- what you take -- a series of margin. That state park gonna go seven -- -- -- now anybody can disagree with that and then at -- doesn't go seventy you know starting in game seven. You get JP going day -- well I could get Fenway Park. Yeah I I like his chances better really in Saint Louis is he says the lead us there equipment you gotta be kidding me so you get I don't peavy pitching today right. And then you got the Pentagon possibly Brock -- -- are -- bright. Event like that -- -- -- it brought out that and I hit. It is our right so they sent you feel you would feel comfortable with -- you radical -- -- -- Astaro. More PD. Well yeah well sure what that means it is not -- in the play out straight and you look at the numbers there I know and ensure rat that is. Brutal -- from the darkness. Yet yeah exactly and your lack element something about saying look that good against lefties. Slowly they scored nine against spot in about like eating in the last Spaniard currently archer. So La that means not even in the playoffs and everything gets thrown out on the it did tonight and hit TV get hypocrite I'm getting that he wrote acting but it pitched well what did. I've entered earners spotted there recently yeah but at all game and at -- app. No question about you know he gets into the sixth inning I think there'll be happy. And here's the difference. At. -- it. Why I think if you throw up blood is -- -- -- -- -- brought sharp drop in the sub saharan morale -- let's not present lie you're. Out on autopilot so like yeah you know what you the. I actually thought of all this discussion about pitchers cannot throw to bases with a lot of Revere in 2001. Try to go to second base on a bond he's (%expletive) out there obviously hindsight he should help the ball. And -- yeah I know I still think as this what I think I I pick the the Red Sox to win in five. I after what the cardinals in game two I I guess it's more reasonable thing reportage about playing anywhere but where does it yet thank -- -- -- In I mean this person in the cattle that's the the debt write what I like it was all right away and and the Red Sox cannot. Same thing later in the game when they spit the bit there with some assault -- much -- that's. Seven spinning it into you know the second game the second game came down to the seventh inning -- -- -- It's not a -- look like that anyway he's got his foot on the bag -- -- -- his -- on the on the base of the play. -- I think he must have believed it was a much closer play that it really was I'm wondering what happens though is on target does the make that play I still think he gets -- if you you'll like that -- on tea and you could see Gomes as his body was not. He went to school in a way yes our ballot while Robert -- was that is where account why people don't like him. -- jump on that so quick. Peaches that you gotta you gotta move off the plate to get the ball right. All. Right we got a gentleman that you please we got to get over that. He's got enough home as Iran and now screaming for teams. You know they could kill them if they are hollow flatly last point all fixing Craig with what sort peace if he'd been -- and again school. Broken record than any broad and then brought in the Rogers it. That -- that's that this is what John must have meant when he thought I was knots were automatically putting Ortiz and for some reason maybe because he's David Ortiz and he's user friendly with the media. And he's challenged his his placed on that list that came out ten years ago. He's not quite in that same category have to admit that even though he might have been user but here's my attitude. All use that for the last year just immediately stricken ship. Yeah Pedro on the interview with token knowledge is not okay when he -- he just said that's one of the reasons he refused to use anything. Because he worked very however this body he worked very had to stay in shape if Pedro -- sit here right now would you tell him -- I believe you were using. I think that's so ridiculous to say everybody was using don't want is definitively said. Don't possibility that that -- -- being from the committee can never used any single of the legal debate Polytechnic. What about the possibility of it would it would be a chilling column last week Greg why didn't use state defiantly. Well you'll only be easy -- -- words apparent division where -- as -- -- user. We don't know that he didn't -- innocent until proven guilty. Well but -- about a quote equity analyst so you'll get there. Well you know worked -- and I say this. I'll say this about Ortiz. The way they have screwed up things just like the Obama health plan that everybody wants that everybody wants these things to be darn right in baseball screw that up so bad in releasing names and then there -- names that weren't released. -- is just a fiasco so I don't know. I don't know how I lean a little bit towards Greg I don't know how you can just keep our guy out because his name is on a list because it was handled so poorly. No I think they should all go in I'm not I'm not making any demarcation. Is all this is a good steroid user Andy Pettitte David Ortiz. This -- a bad steroid user -- erotic -- they all go in my mind. Put them in -- economic -- you put a little lap strictly aimed at played in the steroid are you that you don't think they've played an error or black people were not allowed to play for crying out how they played and aaron's. We want to play with a bat right exactly what this player right in one thing about the -- -- an outlet. But -- got to come out. That it -- that hit a rut it's not bitter peace between these guys. Out there were outed -- -- -- -- right OK but the -- right now all we we we not find out want okay let's get. The only thing the only thing I will give they -- credit for. Is that he did come out in face the music in you admitted that he did it. I I will get credit for that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But I -- fumes. To win -- to indict everybody. Because some people were caught that's ridiculous logic. Well it wasn't exactly. Scientific methodology. Here these people that were quote unquote caught. Were based on testimony that you know unreliable a lot of ways so when I say that David Ortiz belongs in the hall of fame. I'm putting a big asterisk next all of these guys they were all dominant maybe you can probably not a historical -- -- have an asterisk. Next to his name I said the era I would put on individual plan except that is it and is still a visitor. To Cooperstown. Understands. For instance the -- group was a great player dominated. His peers in a variety of different things including on the mound. But you also have to understand historically. That he wasn't necessarily. Facing the best possible opposite okay this entire group of people were not allowed applied. Right in in but his best week no Babe Ruth was not Ty Cobb and so you don't blame him what was -- backup. He was that are out now racist everybody knew that -- and I'm and that's say I would put some current some people -- that did not encourage or want to allow -- or do everything to prevent it. I still don't understand -- yawkey way he has street signs and in buildings named after -- -- I was now not racist I'll I'll never understand that that's not part of playing the game whether you are racists -- not believe the world he says no we are right up on the game when I'm saying is guys like Gaylord Perry poverty knew he knows he. Pitched illegally for years you're not supposed to put a subs that right out of baseball -- -- About Lester went wicked do you believe he's using a foreign substance in his -- they all do. They all do every year to your in this thing where everybody's doing it right because I'm much source Taylor and a I can get exclusive statements I'm not a doctor it'll play one on the radio so I -- -- -- -- -- -- 98 rotted Bedford your product Sports Radio W Maria. But I didn't vote -- an ally. Russia and we just apropos what I thought I love trouble or what we brought here. A lot of credit or what shirt and force. You know what's gone on what are surgeons dispute that the eliminate. The guys fell asleep but will follow -- mostly good but we'll. Went flawlessly. Lackey out alone let me explain it it's a tool that people don't you -- to a virtual blocks that valued at a lefty ready go -- -- -- -- Tonight banks get sicker they are left straight faced a left the -- that I don't get to a one on entirely different and that's the first time people leave. Second time. Yeah Brooke we'll follow the ball over the had a third baseman that bring in the tying run in the world here. -- a little crooked admiral picking up my own. Just like human nature in his -- because Hewitt came down you've got to get a he got the pulpit where the ball and launch a program and edit and apparently. You -- triggered -- two of the searing -- No hardly get a writes I get the breslaw any human being is obvious it is not gonna -- that clear mind to what street culture we're all people. So you just say so when he used things fouls have taken Adam. -- -- -- The bidding got it you elect you to let. Get accepted now that's that they'll struggle because there but mostly it's a tight game go to the next tree would he told them all over that you particularly Libya. -- probably might go about it. No we looked at mount. By the way is as much as everybody it is that much is everybody's putting the knock on Saltalamacchia he made a great stop there. During that series. Well -- you wanna get people call out the figure of force like. When you look at the at the plate or what shall all trying to make a nice weeks yeah I don't -- every -- Kidney and he well -- certainly. A couple of I'd be like -- Why open it would look up a little Gamal and although. It. But as you well know but Ron right now Saltalamacchia. Is on Red Sox fans the list the guys not Haiti makes a bad play good. What's that. Want it to me that I hope they -- greener fuel it even will. With one out that should have been go to sleep well if you look at how the big -- up to the plate with one out the seventh and you. If we re certainly ill leadership based law. We could find a World Series team who had a bad it would keep the American League hitting certain OB opiates and an up and play. I think it's offered don't -- I do wonder about -- I understand defensively right drew was in there and I I don't. The -- illegals even -- what do social the first of great Mike you've played division took baseball and what can you -- -- completely brick and everybody. -- -- -- -- I've also same plays I've also -- plays by other teams of players in the points -- -- Fundamental plays -- made so I'm not taking anything for granted. Right and you know a lot I'm looking even when they're down 42 in the bombs simply still have three innings for the Red Sox tonight now it's in this post season in the way they played all year. Did you really believe it fortuitous that. Then at the game was over it it just because. The cardinals were able to exploit a couple of mistakes by the Red Sox go up by a couple of runs. Did not mean by any stretch did you really think. That the cardinal bullpen was going to be lights out in those final three it's going to be honest with you I mean I don't watch that much National League ball all right it really know what to exactly. And we -- that I know there was throw in some gas well I don't expect -- I understood what they did in the nationally playoffs in the regular season but I expected more of the same what we saw with the tigers tigers. Completely on able. To be equal to the moment -- final the tigers were just it does not even the wow really didn't mean that much will move on and you know is always next year. Guys make -- twenty something million a year yet to be kidding me on the other hand Hampshire Jim Leland probably in retrospect. Would admit that. I should captures -- -- jazz though only a little bit longer both those games. 6177797937. Will we be saying that about Lackey. I don't think it was Lackey that I mean if -- -- on the mound. Does does the seventh inning unfold differently if he stays in the game -- -- thing is Breslow has been terrific right up to date that's why you can't have a -- people are not machines and it's right. Every once a while a guy's gonna come out there and he's not going to be able to make the plays that you won on the make that's the difference fraternal won game one -- winning. We're gonna take a quick break more your calls on the way of Sports Radio WEI. Everything's fixed fixed fixable you know it's. When too much to read into -- really you know -- people want to. It to make it to. Just a small small adjustment that. Can make all the difference in the world. As Jake Peavy trying to work out the -- maybe get some -- arms slot adjustments going for tonight's game number at the rate. Is first World Series appearance ever. He has had success. In Saint Louis as a long time. Hodge -- pitcher we -- seats ninety number three got to -- right year. -- Sports Radio WEEI really all day long is just one giant. Baseball. Pregame show Dennis and -- coming up after process that's -- -- -- -- -- it now they'll just talk about -- kind of things going -- -- that'll be great you know John Dennis thinks it might crack because I -- like John David Ortiz is a hall of -- here's a -- that might take issue with that very topic -- -- -- you're next on Sports Radio. Well fourteen to go on in Enron and orders. -- first designated hitter ever right. Part time left handed DH first baseman only Bloomberg -- better okay -- the Hokies found the fountain view there's something else. Yeah out of a lot of other players you have victories pots they -- on to Gatwick you'll admit Ortiz is one of the greatest clutch -- -- you have a saint. I told nobody is always a sure we'll kick then. Yes. All oil and A-Rod had obviously you're gonna concede this they -- -- -- a little medicinal help now and again he only had one good year postseason -- that's. I got a great what you I just want can sit Greg you can you guys can do what we scientific. Poll your callers. Asked them at fourteen -- I guarantee you at least two thirds tools they never do. While most of the college we polls say they don't want you want. Now -- well not. That hey you know what it is right at least Ortiz is giving Al gift house -- If for your for your own -- of the you don't see the text line that's -- -- an opera Obama got -- academic. And I gotta get this now to get this straight what is the bet between -- -- correct it it's it's a moot point the Red Sox winning the World Series. That he sit down with Mike. Yeah 8383. -- Larry would jump ever collect. You're not gonna collect as the Red Sox are winning the World Series yeah. But you don't -- Well it'll loans for me no I don't agree with credited as a tossup now. They believe that -- the -- box the -- -- around the game in game one the Red Sox return of -- game to Budapest the pipe. We tell you something right now don't you can go with Jake Peavy. Aren't the only. I mean come. The grass -- blast from the past air -- out of a new ball the pitchers you can compare. Probably. -- Oh remember I'm Joseph Girardi who ousted -- C Lee ever have to go to the mound for the Red Sox in the key game -- will it. Any anywhere in a post season in seizing have to check them out now. -- will quit the game. Which one. Sunday on the Obama the app patriots got robbed. I don't but when she's got what are you going to do some field goal and I. A lot of wal -- second level all right -- -- that. Let's do it when I I don't know that would be our IR Bryant got them right now I thought Bryant got him. Ryan got him on that when these idiot that we want you don't think rob art -- his brother -- told them my confidence. Yeah let me tell you for the people say well incident that would be placed updated in baseball. Happens all the time our manager -- opposing defense a lefty with a group thought most of first. Don't -- at first base umpire for the games they list you don't want to -- Absolutely. -- this is here's the question on Mike -- line up that field goal 56 yards knowing that fall wasn't then hopefully the refereeing would throw the yellow flag Beasley going already -- -- -- -- -- and you are probably here's my point I think that was a tremendous -- -- -- -- and that. I disagree with a bit more I think Iraq is too conservative on third and five broads running the ball you don't back and -- still think. You know he's still not completely companies submit that you might. You know if I needed a bit. I I like him now I I think it's gonna be there for awhile he stays injury -- can be pretty good player. I can't I thought like that kidding about the way this thing about it went to -- this information coming into bad attitude I don't see that at all. -- -- -- -- I don't know I thought he had a good game I thought he outplayed Brady Brady right now. I think what you're seeing right now. Yes wasting time talk about the paycheck really got ten minutes left I don't. Let me let me just summed up this whole PP staying within a rod and commissioner used car salesman. From 1995. To 2005. When PED uses an overdrive. Selig did absolutely nothing about it he knew about it. Now he -- David let let if you look like a crusader. Okay. Okay do you think everybody did it like Greg saying. I don't smoke everywhere -- Larry I think a substantial amount of them did it. You think Jeter did it. All young guy you return to a little -- go that far. You can't just make this blanket statement that these guys didn't do -- tell me why aren't why debate why should they be smeared. Quite -- -- everybody who would put a 100% I think it's significant percent. I think Canseco was probably on target what he says 7580 -- -- -- -- -- did. -- -- -- -- Yeah how about it by. That you used car lot in Milwaukee -- he and Bartlett a plaid jacket tells them soccer I think what you would give Buick. Let me read a tepid metro fire at every -- with -- Kevin Mitchell know what that -- which Mitchell the senator -- tournament. -- probably broke the health plan is up in the abort is on board of directors of the Red Sox as a very objective best. All -- he's got. I don't feel -- Jack you win you're an exact radio and I feel this morning Jack about your Boston Red Sox. Let me be quick points -- I know you looked -- me as much time as -- stop slightly different. I was talked about personal I've met -- when I was -- I wanted to say hello happy with the caucus I don't have a telephone number but anywhere developed useless and hopefully get. I just wanna talk about that one play because in the game the other night. Principal goal shouldn't have been in there and Duracell. I think done a great job getting them with the -- -- -- a mistake I don't know how -- can put that guy in the lineup would now run the bank but on that play. Is brought it was still in the wrong way -- -- -- he had not shock really to get the -- at the plate if he had real baseball instincts which I think he does. -- -- -- At the -- and I'm glad it was a four point. We have endorsed Obama the second that the guy that time would describe it that would have been out in the parliament it's a Lackey up. What does -- -- region and he's trying to catch well this week even if he reaches out and gets the ball -- -- -- this weekend and get them now. -- and then look at the -- could go and Saltalamacchia. Their own internal. I mean I never saw so many swings and misses and strikeout. And I would put a benefit to. And hopefully those statistics are the 670. League ballplayers that are put it. And that and that and that at Baltimore -- in playoff baseball playoffs. It's six the sense that he broke. I mean you know I'll tell me intimate and the place and I agreed to have a good but I haven't seen and. -- part of the lives you -- only good plate now you're going to be probably the guy that's can't make those plays. Because you've got to take one game of football -- to try and put metal works. Last year he was great he went in the slap this year and -- in the line -- we come back. When he first came back he was didn't -- -- 300 then whatever a puppy get. But boy I would much rather seen that -- a -- and Stephen Drew right now. You know and I just think you're comfortable -- -- short and that is about -- his shots. I mean that that predicament that he was in the basement. -- we know why I don't know I think when it comes October and did everything and did I forget whether they were ahead 21 about one not that. Mentally capable men on first and second in the league pennants. And I don't give it to them and. What a cute to look at him look good nor bad play is important I think there were down one nothing at the time that you read about it and nepotism that successful. -- -- -- -- put -- management and. Don't play that way in the American League you know well all that Jackie got to give up your small ball. Crusade as its not gonna happen. Ralph in Cranston you're next on Sports Radio -- Ralph. And good morning thanks Tom. The game itself. This is going to be a different strategy -- ensured that. It will lead to at least association with the estrogens -- will look at such great report which is in the world and the concept was. The MacBook or try to fool and it's actually collect and this is not a stunt which they -- so many below. The actual that's why when we get to this pitcher Joseph otherworldly I would have spoke -- -- not the whole world. Like a sure it's -- burrow into one of these guys will -- won everything. Right but you can actually support score in -- up or -- that's why -- -- only way to usual hole why. How about power about Saltalamacchia catching again. Well I mean. That's. Something I don't get around perhaps also used it as much last to be getting -- that the source. But I don't have a problem with their original -- -- you -- how about how about defensively. I particularly like sure I'll look at that offense first stop this war that he can't do legally to the 78 I would put my best teacher to play yourself. -- like BL I bring true it -- now it's a little different strategy because this is a different. We never thought would be. Didn't we built this recorded call these guys and most of them are gonna be a war -- It's more pressure on to win the action here subsequent -- was. Now we thought this is going to hear -- enjoy the game tonight Steve we got to let ego get -- -- coming up next and Dennis and Callahan amending. Million policies that you know. Okay what a great show they do -- just loved that show Larry some more accolades before you go. I'm like -- you're Italian you want me to rip -- you yeah I -- really sites are from the they're really upset that you're ripping a job very well right about the Obama -- -- -- and rip him took a shot at me that I am still on the floor over recognizable pretty large enough medically sick -- you wouldn't be getting out too bad Shelby wasn't here we were forced to go about -- I haven't the last working under -- -- -- -- Now I'm obviously a signals an instant shirts you Wear enough of those dirty war let's go out to the mighty Mississippi River job. And Jerry and Kirk covered up -- and Sports Radio WB.
