Exports and everything and escapade you don't think about us in now I don't result on and well delta force which -- -- -- -- -- What what did you realize that was you know that life probably the third month it felt like. -- -- is an amazing -- you know you can do what we say that people say. It's return here bachelor party whatever. That say -- you know going to be okay. So he's he's he's a row he has he's not he's a pro since what probably won't want -- in the machine and you say you think one -- -- break then never does he thank you possible yet I don't you might be abandoned based on the tweets. What -- -- -- sort of yes a phase distress as strange as this sort of thing is not as upgrade for. Advocates you don't think so what you think he's the greatest follow them all you have to because those chances -- gonna go. -- you default -- court as a follow up Julia goes after Bertrand out of of those those that's like that's the deal -- -- yet. Right that's the -- you know I know a lot. It's like get the real deal -- the thanks. The wife and are going out for lunch and the swim with the size between upset that's so -- -- an average now. It is a good quality because these are few people that you look forward to the next week. Because you never know it is never. I'll repeat the fall -- not sure if they're gonna go off the rails as muse is probably the only one there's a lot of people don't -- -- I mean that's not people who wore her and that's you know let me Clark -- has been counted -- -- doesn't -- don't hurt the across a couple of cents. He says direct messages and tweets in my whole onion Kevin Millwood where it's 01. Or you know that is the lunatics that we know like in silly oh as like that you know. -- A crazy two weeks ago. But it's not he's not one of those guys that you you know no worries me in person is first time I've ever work -- Personal Obama much. You are supposed to be done well or drove in and out of not a violent I can no no not no problem it's not the other -- of the rebel over here. I'm sure. So losses in this big sausage fingers on the blog right now I'm under orders I can't let that. Can't let that go now now. -- host of policy wise that. The Olympic -- -- all. We just play one big. The -- for three hours here but god that's and it's sad because you know what meter. Those baseball those Red Sox as well or better than anyone in this market and mostly I include people are on the beat. You know like I say Peter and I here it's like that there's that -- It's anything. But you know based human you know sports that I do like that the innocent if there if there ever if the Ehrlich a media critic in this town who were gonna rate who's gonna rate the sports knowledge of the sports talk shows. I mean that would never happen this wouldn't -- Well for his guys right now but if that works someone like that the world who must record Jim Baker was gonna -- sports world. Would you put anyone had a meter. Mean Bob Bryan stands along -- because he's he's he's he's types. -- back -- that if you took Brian's. Body of work from. From the old days so some people in the old days and Mikey ends -- -- Red Sox I couldn't one's -- -- historical all -- community at the Mariners via government but if you took them intimate question who would you put the enemy you stink. Yeah maybe him that's about it -- -- that your that mean I mean I'm sure that I'm sure it. That just aren't you think for once I put I'm sure. An occupant of the future is bending over back which he wants to black helicopters regularly. Well I -- that I did anybody come because meter obviously was a passionate fan growing up but he also. Was a flash boy who had to know the days and he likes -- likes sports easily -- Atlantis. And like that if there were ever I mean I know that's crazy. Thought Kris Allen's margin to rank you know who knows sports and Sports Radio. Now what we know why would never be done in in in at least in the Boston Globe. And this would wanna give me your program or even minute also become reports -- -- oh really would be unlike you know who who's on the Ernie Johnson replied televisa would -- its rank who knows most about sports. Why is that why is that any more boring and any other media -- But it's a -- in the giving immediate -- it's not -- And -- Bob rice and launch John Sterling hit through all of this up about this a media column on Sports Radio people who don't know sports. -- -- without heat that up that's that's called reverse it that. Okay and you could take shots -- you know people you wanna take shots at -- that was Patrick -- debuted. At the people who. You know and you're experts have practiced right. Another you know hockey guy ought to talk about Patrick Roy. But wouldn't meet Perot farewell and that -- you -- too much -- would -- like sit there you know what he's mad because he thinks he knows more than you do I do not. And that's. The very similar. And it's very but if you'd asked me questions from the -- -- answer to a Catholic what what do you think of legitimate and the dot Goodrich. And agrees that and honestly I -- he's got a good job to see rates again do you hate him because everyone wants to be missed when they leave and we miss you actually he's different than you it is I don't like I say that honestly mean we may issue because he is different. And you always when we go off the -- you can always get it back in on the -- tried to these guys now Boston I would like you they really knew because you're a sports guy -- in Boston sports cut at Boston sports fan. That the most important. Yeah -- I. Wish you hear that the shows that you and I used to do Dale Arnold you guys -- about -- -- so do you sometimes think you know more sports the -- yes you have mom and I don't think -- it's a perfect fit. Because I think he's. He gets you -- he gets he manages jury goes well. He manages ego that's. Scene and when the producers don't you know give -- a piece of paper don't. You know kisses at the scene that's not -- they should leave the nest and cameras out of that one of these it's always justified but don't deleted and prosecutors should be you know I don't feel. And now on this and that those two words in this and those that it was -- those two and that's that's to protect it. They could they won't do a column until the -- and I love until the period until a built like. We at anfield the block and -- did you hear it no did an almost to a deserted did you address brought the question what are you listening to Ron and and it's. -- As Charlie -- -- that's correct observation political. Trip you couldn't get to the questions please tell you didn't hear -- and Bradford got called for a homer. Bradford called buck clears opened in the setback not the Obama cut off the it was great homophobic or something I didn't even though they disliked each likeable you likable you.

Which Greek yet times but sometimes you -- was agree that the and then sometimes on Monday. He's good enough good Pittsburgh. Was over argument people and it was and it devolved into chaos which we like. We know enough chaos in this nation anymore need more chaos this was -- yesterday yeah.

I think it's who you Croat issue it's definitely be perfect. Perfect out you know what you want you reflect relieve the show -- the -- to size -- love Hewitt you know a -- I -- -- I talked to him more than a centimeter almost finished yes he touched everybody's the biggest gossip and a minute's notice arrived at tournaments like this -- standoffish guy in person but went to get him with the phone in the next in the and he's the biggest gossip there is that's true if this -- -- this little gig fails you'll be the next. Inside track. Person you can do the -- attract.

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.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
