In the house. -- -- On his way you're kind of committed at that house product ever heard enough revenues grew up different different idea right that you're gonna recover the -- the -- on court TV I love it I can't I hate to get the job -- Or ideas that away because I've I've built the road I've. Basically. But the Culbertson lives candidate I have -- for fourteen maintain a -- I have maintain the whole thing and and what you've never -- -- to back down from a good it's you know was a scrum. And I was gonna ask you now -- while you're here if you could to depict. Your most famous managerial. Issue which was with the -- Don -- you gave that name you can get along with a what started that big. Fight between you would. Don -- What was the cause of that. I think. I was sitting in Seattle and I was sitting there I think it was -- -- go north with. -- been our boy I think was or no -- was still with us. We had a fourteen game lead on the Yankees and he said yeah I was take -- taking me out of the starting rotation after my record was and and I said we bring -- up he said -- brow as you can. But peace -- Bobby's brow and I remember that's what it never really pitched in the big leagues you never won a game in the okay at all at all yeah Bobby's -- took my spot. I think your record went to. I was ten and and at that point of the into the season host and tan. Never got another start never got another start. I never I only pitched in the Red Sox massacre when we came back the in my -- And then that massacre right through nine in a third innings of relief and gave up one run. A home run the loop and Allah and that's it that's what you -- you can see I had to put you back in the rotation never. And I had pitched those nine innings in one of those Red Sox games yes. We would never seen but he'd mop on our reported the playoffs we would have avoided the playoff if he just started one. Right so you -- observer but it wasn't the first time you didn't see -- -- because you -- a whole bunch of guys. -- Fergie Jenkins I remember that day because there was a fight between Sutton and -- It's an LA if these remind it was on that same day and he says how can these two guys like no how can they fight. I said once a pitcher ones hitter and the Twain shall never me. Yet and I -- that Samuel Clemens you know we're right where they both from the darkness with Gary we're able to draw on the dot -- up before he went to the Padres -- right man I think -- -- both on the Dodgers -- they had to have been because I played against. Garvey in 879. When he was there I beat -- and back to one. And got a base hit office here -- Montreal with Montreal beat -- and arousal I'd just shaped my beard remember that Harvey am -- not first RB goes. I don't know if you look better with or without the beard. And it says US open wheel or Opel there at at a pivotal of that he -- now that. So that did 78 and a 78 when the Red Sox win that was the collapse that's what they said. OK I you're going to stand pat exactly which was that may be the worst. Ever trade in Red Sox history because. You went on to win sixteen games for the Expos at. And cap but I stand happy not big populist not confusing to -- as happy didn't do squat nothing ever. On the subway stops around whose stand pat who the hell was and happy yeah it was amazing I'm the good old days. Yeah but I was with Dukakis they were trying to get me career I was with fair share Abalone alliance. It was -- The mass commission against and -- radical causes is zero population growth. Until like Katie was born and I was wrong that that. That was my third kid. But I I used to do all the causes here in the and I started the group in Cambridge calls -- from -- -- yes which -- Harrington stated. You know the yawkey -- right now and it's based series you've been partly because of your revolutionary. Thinking as the they left wing. Anarchist. Who you you you were kind of are on the bus for everybody just Zimmer. When I was player rep I was American League player rep always writers' strike we had the lockout we had 76. We were free agents stand. Then an 81 when I was in Montreal that was the last -- right and big league right as I was nationally player wrap your Marvin -- Barbara Miller working I was Marvin Miller right hand right right is the only one arm okay. That's and the and that's why it ever appropriate about the guys who did what he -- he retired in Europe all the reps and they said what should we get any -- Tennessee slams -- that -- around -- All right so the phone number his rhetoric because limit your questions -- -- we -- baseball and I got some for myself but the number 61777. -- 7937.

He's left a -- is okay is OK okay. Everything. Is integrated. And he's left. He would you have to win to his son's death is that by design or are you don't you think there's a natural mr. being you pick up the ball whichever did you throw away that's what you're Michael's right handers did just. Forced himself to be left weird birdies but -- isn't true left via my my boy -- lefty to. Yeah it says it can be to a local baseball no question about it. That much we actually baseball west faces a game. That's set up for left handers it really hits you right because left handed hitters. Eight closer to the first base -- act and they're all right -- and Iran Iran you got a gap there you left handed hitter that's what mostly an all time batting champions have been left and -- re edit her already and it's not as a practice that arrogant -- figure out -- we did it at the bottom of that to the game itself prize ports that is if you will I can hold the runner on. Yeah a lot and lot right Adam look right now and they have a hard time. Stealing second base you know I have a pretty good movement to pick people you know who had the greatest move ever is an independent and -- while the best in the -- floor who wins Bob Butler had a bad mustache and disabling my brother yet. He did -- on bed -- It's a bad porno started bad for a movie you know. Now Austria left handers a Red Sox have 21 and Jon Lester who. Claimed he was going to be going to take home team discount stick in Boston but you know we're finding out in a home team discount from. I'm Lester may be twenty million a year anyway 23 point Biggio and we -- and but this if you will tell us your assessment of Felix -- brunt. I saw him last year the end and I said he's got a pitch against Saint Louis and finally they listened to me. And that brought him man in the race's history why do you say that -- he had a perfect fade away for them. He had. He was the perfect match. Like I was the purse -- -- matchup in 75 against Cincinnati is like it pistols right handers away and turn the ball over. And he'd just was master yet but EU looks good already this spring. He's gonna have more and more confidence these he reminds me a little bit of -- wrong -- Mike Quayle are right who was a Cy Young -- winner one year with Denny McClain. Who'll -- -- should have hit the ground ball wherever he wanted to talk to Willie Hernandez she brought his name yes. He had a perfect fade away and look at Koji he has the perfect -- if you can pitch power hitters. A way slowly. They can't hitch because as long as you can throw hard not to keep them honest. They will always swing over the top of that fade away from. Tug McGraw -- -- urged Lee had that fade away. Same thing he had the slider and yet pinpoint control now you know I mean great relievers and agree years but last year that second half of the year the guy was light out. I mean he never -- -- balls in the time he didn't give up my you know that ball almost was caught in center field right you know and unbelievable it you know he sold tickets he broke the record. He broke the record for most consecutive -- of you know very small area but it was a and I asked packages with lawyers who do -- Latin phrase used their promise this year is going to be score. You think so. Yeah and and I thought Pierzynski. You know would never get hurt and now he's got as the -- the ankle you know not -- -- to catchers in -- -- thirties right. It's that it beat I like both -- I love combo yeah I mean there's this Roscoe I was just you know he's like almost a one of those salt of the earth. Ankles are hard but suing you -- here -- out. You know. They do have an up and coming guy well -- as it is -- that yes there is a god supposedly -- ago -- going Ross was comparative to yadier -- they always talked about -- and weighs -- next big thing here he's here guys -- yeah and it I've -- right. Are we -- watt. Not Dixie want to leave but the the what we might -- here of saint. Whitney and I know wasn't Dixie widely on balls and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Get paid though I wouldn't have variety show review with the academy music in North Hampton. A moment -- that like twenty years ago yeah that you're. Are featured speaker. I just like that take up on the Ed Sullivan out. I used to play ball out there played -- Hampshire College -- that would now Thursday with -- Thursday we were obviously -- -- national online within the pit and that. You know all you went and got right after. What's at all -- youth ball. Yeah how we -- it was a really fun but that was way yes I'm a big tax there or that like yeah. You know any game 67%. And. You it's fifty cents -- who -- then my neighbor came over that morning that you wanna -- to game whether it be to -- and the last game. You were there for fifty cents. An. Assistant -- show -- that a ticket prices so you should -- a while. -- -- but then again you look at you say okay fifty says the players Jamaican you know 40000 dollars maximum. You know. Now and I've abuses -- before. What -- get a couple hundred dude granderson -- to a grand valley took home 89 month and oh so you only have to pitch a 150 years bill to make what. What. Was against the Dodgers -- a person what he's gonna make it this year we have the -- is a 150 years at that number it this way where baseball's insane. And it just doesn't stop the Yankees sign Ellsbury. Twenty million dollars a year for seven years. To make any sense to it. Tired Darren what is the name is Darren Oliver and millions Aaron I'll he had no idea like you'd be a lefty could stick around again for -- -- he -- even -- -- wasn't -- -- There -- -- -- nowhere near as good as bill all you have to do is roll model for me -- you at all only one like left the dollar per unit acknowledged smoking pot. Well some on the cover -- times three times. What Richard Windsor go over to Amsterdam -- -- chairman of their him fast now I was I was and they want you to be I was the head speaker for normal. I remember before opening day when you really and we went to it and they didn't go up a bit or a day late and I forgot they are not the -- I didn't all the reds iced tea and it's -- well in the bleachers they gave me nothing but I think he's I think. But it is and it -- -- on his -- -- well you know it. He's tricky and it pretty and it's 45 degree angle and the way he brings his knee across like -- It's it's it's tricky rate -- -- early Saturday to early this early -- unit there regarding. Now I didn't -- -- got to move when I was Smart I knew when they are running and to this day and oh yeah you like Richmond guys -- and I didn't but I don't try to come up here at. Did you ever get golfer -- We need to get a couple of Geithner called for -- I usually call for block nowadays for not stop. And then I look at the umpire and and hold the ball and I ago now you want me to hold the ball for five and a half stopping a lot made of you know I said yeah you know I think. Don't care they're not running mommy anyway it's a 65 and -- it already -- -- I was I always wanted to call block on Billy Goodman and you've you've fulfilled your best gaggle. Tell your 93 program let me ask you before we take a protest. A break here about that the new rule they're trying to do it to avoid a home plate collision we were your thoughts on impossible. Impossible to do is just so so bang -- so close sew up the line. It's you just don't try and hurt guys but he got it I mean is is that it's a tough game and you gotta play at that way I gist. You know I feel bad I feel bad when guys get hurt but -- on her he came back in the hall of fame -- that the giant catcher hours -- that's where it gets hurt real going to be in the -- thing right you get hurt you come back you don't block the plate anymore this was a -- dagger that. You don't wanna make people thinking about that as it displays happening now you can't -- it's trending now writer yet here you want it to happen right there it as it goes and you can't be taken all while. Am I going to be you know. Pinched on this give the the broader a chance to score giving part of the plate. Take that'll play he can hook slide around you he can do this you know when you. Land and you have the ball in the -- step in front of the plate the runner has no ball for no other choice no choice right. What could there be more injuries to maybe if there ever on -- -- And -- of some injuries eagle slide into an era in roads on a plan -- like a and right you can try to slide if he's not totally played did you try to slide past the base and take out the ligaments not planted -- and it's locked in -- three truck when Fisk got hurt. He blocked the plate on -- Iran Lee and he got his clock ms. -- Iran Lee was big and hitting just exactly right. Posey was down. Kind of vulnerable and he got lead over his cleats got yeah and that's heat manner then you know but very seldom did people get hurt and it's you want. Rhubarb -- miss calls by umpires you won the umpire to come out I mean the the manager to throw his hat and it kicked dirt.

It I hated SE I hated their I have nightmares to this day dreaming. About SC missing classes professors at that they can test while I don't remember which or graduated with special that I nation I did but I still the anxiety use suffer. Being this place I was too young. You know it was kind of the guy dropped off and I was sent in the quarters might calm when I was that kind of nervous as a child. And I was I was young I went to school for and I -- icy to injury -- -- did late December exactly so I was always. I'm the kind of guy that would never made it -- the NHL you know I'd never. I I was too young and everything else it's a rare thing that I made his -- it did it -- but I was I was gifted gifted with a pinpoint control like I was gifted with. Very good move I was gifted with unbelievable ability to adapt and change yeah I think I I did this today. I get people out on pitches in the -- You know your -- against forty year old is it out yeah and our -- kids that -- -- -- him -- sounds funny but it's true you don't have 67 yeah oh yeah exactly -- play it down you have forty year old kids I have 42 of them and still play ball right. And I'm looking forward to going to lose one to look. A finish utopian community often island off an island off Vancouver Island and -- a play in the Victoria date tournament. With all these hippies up there died there eating oysters and playing hard ball like. Is -- my grandkids that's when I look forward to look for us kind of a strange but -- -- -- -- bloodletting if you'd have thought that way now that's -- -- -- come back game I don't think 1109 by the way he's so I did the -- -- try to squeeze all -- it before bill has flight tomorrow to Vegas let's surrogate Mike in the truck on here Mike. Hello. Everybody you know in my -- go ahead you're on the air. I'd pick and you're out I don't know if any garlic and -- -- 77. I'm feeling pretty good credit could -- -- -- of the time. Yeah about this issue that the yeah. And I know they're going to got a pretty good at that -- and make it sure that and -- chance. You have elect -- but I think that the leadership is going to be picked it because bottled and shipped -- the planet from last year. Is going to be a good team don't worry about it I love him and you know you just can't appreciate what you had last year this team didn't think they're going to be 500 amendments spring training and they had Ballantine. They had this all hanging over and it was just tremendous -- what kind of truck you drive the 990. I'm gonna get my feet and -- -- Arlen or rather etc. but that won't go with it clearly. Long Island bringing fresh wanna. As good -- And yet any. Tonight let's not men that lot up for a Long Island -- he. -- Canadian illegal aliens on -- and I'm sure I don't doubt. About. It. That's -- -- Mike thanks ticket and get Jeff Greenfield hello Jeff. Yeah on I'm good how are you boiled -- and big day on the Connecticut River. But. Treatment that would yeah we feel there's a great town as a -- It's not a bad. My question is and -- suit based on these changes there on domestic you know within three lead and -- -- the last contact -- -- play. The question of sports in general public now I can't swear and say certain things in football they wanted to -- I think out of hockey. I understand your time goes on sports you have to Dutton -- -- and here and there aren't. And then on -- and people bought into that hole PHC get agreement what's going on that. My question is where they draw the line you know where when he is you know. You -- this was some vacation of all sports. Yeah I admit it when they're going to be enough -- why it why change things that are completely unnecessary and and on my big thing especially in baseball are now. It doesn't take away from the period and -- my understanding wanna get a car and especially big game do you wanna make sure it right. Forty years ago same situation look. -- human known yet well what about that though because the kind of play you're gonna have a play where you can't call in the first place. Even answer replay double its reply with the replay with a replay at everything else abandoning yesterday's high its attack. Well it it it's that -- OK you get a half a point I get a half a point it's a CFL. Tiger is that a runner. I goes in or whatever but whatever tiger -- the good play isn't it good though especially when it comes the big games that there can be no. Future argument about was he safer route if they have in those games the ability to get it right. Every time -- unlike what they'd done Dinkins or what every five. You know where it changed the whole outcome I know to say or or or even it's every five World Series you know the the play with an arm Brewster or something I mean. Another point though I mean I understand that bogey where -- -- -- -- -- line okay sure they're gonna start to review this -- let them and later sir thank all of our third you know. -- -- chewing everything and then you're just gonna make a long game even longer and I just think it's gonna you're gonna take. The carrier with him actually -- a lot of interest in -- Okay here's what we do. Before the season we drop a neutron no drop high frequency bomb in the atmosphere. And that'll have electric discharged which will destroy all cellular items and everything in all everything in -- will go back to.

And hills -- We're off the year -- -- will we still -- mean what will it affect the rest of us I think so I think we're all gonna change and got answered everything now Bud Selig saying right now -- and I think that that's something that. When you refused have a cellphone you're one of the few people I know now in my whole life and you you don't have one you'll want one.
