-- much to my surprise. My quads. Are a little more so for them my hamstrings this morning after all. Four hours and nine minutes of me standing out there cheering on the runners they went by -- -- but I will say this. The energy and the excitement of the crowd around me. Kept me up right and and stationery and active and plotting for four hours and nine minutes this evidence of the day certainly have something to do with it. But I'm I'm making a top -- and retired now retiring from this because. How can it get any better than yesterday so that's that it's good luck and a group of fans were the -- on anymore about it. Top one out on top good cause too crowded missed too many people there they were in my way. But it -- you know what I don't think it will be elected next year I don't think government like that again -- -- runners or or famine and that was about it that is. Was electorate but it's still great it'll still be greatly -- and as you know actually interest. Rate for hours optical. I would do it again. Bush is better marathon experience than yesterday -- personable -- even answer that I'd like to thank our personal Dennis and Callahan -- fund. Since he finished yesterday he's been on Dale -- Hang way up Mikey did Schwartzman overnight -- I think he called it is that why you ask me -- they needed no I didn't tell you I just arguing -- -- -- every radio program in the world -- -- -- nothing for a I was JT the brick column we said hello what George great. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Was announced a settlement paid television -- I'm fine early edition that comes to -- on Holland's supposed to publish -- -- called -- -- The ABC gratitude. -- they were there from media and as -- like words for you which -- would -- for wind or shorts and a from every -- entertains your a couple of minutes drive and informative and did you tell him via the good idea bad idea for a I'll never dull moment. So why not stop at this point I might I night you'll. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Like it was yesterday and they use their four while future was. On believe it was 1 and I am congregate cornea Marcos awful. It was one of the great sporting moments ever. Well ago. I was by myself at first in the stands it was funny deal where we were the team due to the stands were fifty feet away. -- -- But 45 minutes to get -- walked. Two miles I knocked it down Arlington and it backed up across and it wasn't the back across his back up and two blocks over and it's. And security was a pain in the -- there was a lot of frustrated. People family members could not get to the Boston's right. They couldn't get anywhere near the finished with a shoulder VIP pass ideas why. Cries of -- here but he's you know like L with that I went into the VIP area three different times of literally six hours. And every time it was. Our way yet more undo again and they'll. Boost and it was I mean it was over the top and I'm I'm not gonna complain about it. Hopefully -- shield them right you'll be risking twelve year old kids. Mean again just profile a case stop -- twelve year old kids don't arms anyway. It was awesome display sauce and even no -- We you know we was now we met him mister minister I think we did Tony Revis said they would not be in a -- the greatest experiment in what you -- absolutely the greatest. Whenever premise is better that Revis out that was better than anyone and anything and he said no chance that American it was a surprise that -- -- -- even know anything. Look like typical American remain. He just he might be from your -- It's yes I think that's Eritrea bit rhetorical stuff. He's a native of -- read for any move here and when he was twelve that's cool. Based chants of USA started when he was two blocks of more -- when he made the turn right most. Ago chant USA. At Roche has happened. Yeah happen all day -- -- But he was I was paying attention but the -- out nobody goes with it I would that he would yet all these that John Hancock and identity is the mayor and it was a tough job -- joke but. It was just wanna know who wins this guy. And I hope that he was American in the crowd and the and among big man on the -- marathon runner fan. That was so cool is this a bit upset not the fact that America while -- huge he's 39 yet not. He's. Well -- like algebra -- at least six months and you turn yeah he's just to know he just turns 39 next month that's about. He's got that when it gets more press that he's got it's it's absolutely true. Mean the first wave leeway if you see people this week that smile and not even straining and accept your chick she -- should theater itself -- use -- strategy and finish line. And they call we coaches over and everything she's I mean which is coach that'll feel right. But the guys ask the skinny guys not nearly as difficult for them as it is for yeah. Yeah well it's much longer for you -- yet it's much longer for other people was for me you might. It was fine commute was longer than -- to be it was hot it was hot the sun never let up all of your putts standing there but it felt -- Of course and initiate it you're an idiot the vision and where -- -- just -- -- -- query on our opponents on screen like the halfway point is I didn't Robyn are waiting to stop -- CBS and I've been at all -- say okay I know to put African. On again -- have a right device feels warmer it. Is it feels when you were like I -- like I like running hats with -- I don't like those -- the -- on so I was I was called signal that kept the sun off your forehead ultimate thing is a did you face the big -- and I feel I felt warm at the of people. That was a little hats on people that people struggling in my point more people walking and not I think he will operate -- I stretched I want to over the tried stretch in my hamstrings but in I was -- a -- a try I was -- let's take a pass heartbreak hill. I was empty hole leak completely spent Bruce -- was downhill hard. Just BC a little bit -- -- was -- it was great is that if I'm telling you from. Beginning to and that usually go through you know actually in the frame him it's quite the was yesterday it was 23 deepens the whole race and everywhere it's all well. All point six miles about were no gaps there were no gaps you know -- we know that's awesome blossom was. -- unbelievable. Now was what was it like that it was -- -- yes the -- -- I got there. I -- -- and I'm telling -- I still say the ladies there the better it is it was just. Watching I was there for Brad follow. He crusty and he -- Like three feet away but he added phones well he wasn't listening to the crowd at finish. That's not the way he has he's his -- -- I was fallen -- live tweeting the race but he didn't look like he was struggling now that you're in the unit compared to some of the people. I was there watch that I could -- and it was just unbelievable to see what else. Four people each -- yet they literally like when -- -- you -- you know somebody. And they carried them I don't know couple maybe block made via couple does that count if you get carried across you know he didn't get carried across that is wrong. If you read that somewhere else I did. They stopped before the finish down propped him up and he staggered over the finish outside did not finish the race that's not a somewhat. To say if he's let me finish it is now no medal for them. -- -- -- -- But the people who carried them. Didn't know -- and realized it like friends notes and team everybody's different doctor -- and but they eat at bar stool as the video people like vs two guys on him and then someone grabs a lag and so wells grabs a leg -- people. Running in the Boston Marathon and it's -- rapidly looking guy right yeah with somebody like. -- -- needed care opt Sonya I stayed I was out there at 5 o'clock.

That she got out of a chair in and grab their arms and ran. -- The last half -- I'm with the America. Couple hundred as the moment spoiled little Bradford ran over to you greeting at the kind of portrait at the outset of this. -- to an end and this goes back to my theory of relativity relative speed that I tell that story about cross and the -- About how different. A -- athletes or in any discipline Bentley car. And hand last year plus everyday blocker and train his ass off and blooded cold sleep as -- banks -- the whole thing. And be disciplined and run ten miles twelve mile on trading at one point one miles.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
