They need appears to match him that day and that was that was during the time where we're gears now talk more about this later that was tire Wear when pierce could afford. To call out LeBron Jane yeah I would worry about -- Jackson. We still had you still have a little -- lateral movement you know he's a guy was he was inside the bronze head to an -- just like make it Larry Bird LeBron had more points. But Peterson the Celtics won that game didn't PJ brown and his entire playoff money that can't you Dave played Great Neck and -- brownies people forget about him because he he won the rain in any kind of disappeared. And has been around much but they they don't go and win the championship without him really key guys. And. I mean that's just the day with their relationship.

Like like the finished adults alike than just to be honest -- -- And what your -- today that. You. -- And the single greatest comeback I've ever witnessed -- that that's they were down three goals with ten minutes last. And as you watched it you almost couldn't like they scored the first we thought okay well at least that will be a little more right back I was switching back and forth net then they scored the second -- anything -- I mean maybe and then they scored the third went to -- it and I thought.

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.
