Has our number three Dennis and Callahan and it is always a pleasure to talk baseball with our hall of fame friend Peter Gammons who joins us on the AT&T hotline -- Peter argued today. Are no longer are excellent good and I'll get to a number of subjects with Cuba let's start with the interesting tweet that Jerry and Kirk I've been trying to. Dissect and figure out the media manipulation. That shoved the Red Sox best player offshore. And took ten million dollars from a productive deal means no 2950 BP in the five through nine holes I understand what the words mean in and of themselves. Are you suggesting that the Red Sox brass either succumbed or in some way. Was swayed to some degree by media the media low for a Stephen -- I think he'll. We didn't look so I -- the only Star Wars that are great job and all that and other. They options for students who don't you. And she didn't go well in social work but -- so much all. Shortness. Of corrupt practices. When you -- a situation which -- which are trying to develop young players. And -- attended the same time you go from some periods now. Obviously -- -- period we're so worried about what exactly Jackie Bradley but on the other hand. I mean once on board work was terrible. Aired. I thought that that was so much. May we view it happens -- Julia can't see it through billboards is hurt or what are the long term impact that you can only god can work. -- order will be a good player in America -- regular regular player who issues. Second -- -- a problem placement all short -- racially behind Troy Tulowitzki on me what. Well they're it will accomplish what I've got served the greater in my mind was another bat. Likely out to see that certainly no one's -- the drill now available back. -- to go to the market. And they don't have. Our guests are good that it that it is that got. A little crazy and I really don't mean they. All I had -- in here that we -- gores fault that they were worried and I that's -- they'll sort. While mall for knock in the media around Peter for that but instead the media manipulation should you say -- to. I'll move -- the Red -- best part of short took ten million from productive deal I mean. War I think the coaches and players one through backward and he wasn't you know huge defensive part of their wedding last year I'd I'd buy that. There practical so much or they'll get through here he's so shorthanded is very reliable. It's simple throughout the year I'll Google Google places in the air that they won't want and 23 Detroit news starting pitchers. -- they're trying to -- you know in regards and good luck enters. It basically I put too until he gets -- and I get. But the practice -- computer is painful in -- salaries of 240 commuter. It up because of the concussion and the ankles. Or is -- because. Audience I mean in America I'm not sure icing where there are problems assault witness -- this will. Last night if last night was any indication in the Ferrell has lost faith in them because if you watched it but. He hit form would Jonathan Herrera and and let Bradley hit for himself. Up next it was in this you new ten million dollar a year guy who plays you know every other day and when he -- faced a tough lefty. Our our hits so it's you know it's it's it's hopeless now what else could have done OP when it was there. Hope they -- their -- -- -- DH and they who knows what else could they have dealt with the money. Well other -- maybe well Arafat now resolutely against illegal what most -- San Diego that you want to show with Cameron Maybin. Which I don't like -- -- -- -- content. Your. Such -- what Caroline a topic but. I don't think -- -- out fighting. It productive outfielders as some sort of drop an alibi thought I was gonna lose. Let's go to do well on the other hand. I think the out of public view riddled can order a little. Bogart factor for -- and I think got old quickly kill me Alex who will argue about that he did it. Let the clock to move back and forth between certain shorting -- I would report it to hold somebody -- same way. Is that what you play -- is like you're cage or you react so -- by. -- -- -- -- And what you won't hurt short -- -- hard to go back those angles which corps -- with some problem with. -- Both personal responsible citizen and you. That he wants visibility this isn't the angles that he actually added. He has lost but you know we'll see but it's. The Jackie Bradley I was shocked that out last night. I realize that -- and -- left handers in a long time but the same time. Jackie didn't report the strike out agreeing to a -- legal what in the world Obama Geithner. I actually killed her and about 75 on base and very productive player. Peter -- two part question here is there in your opinion buyer's remorse in the Red Sox front office regarding the -- acquisition and the second part is. How can win. Will the Red Sox decide to be buyers or sellers in the coming days. All my -- that the city rewards so I mean they're well they've really lecturer. And there are also -- that centuries and still a great believer. If there is no middle books. Very strongly. So that there will be decisions made another year from now what's interesting here is that it's a part of it. Of course purposes and Stephen Drew and her Bogart's. And never Guerrero. In now. I don't think that old orchard place -- And then went through it's -- moral play short I don't know what are those two little books and you Keeney. Are people like us but. There are so many political angles. At play here that. You've just got to wonder. What I would be. A year from now and I are ignorant about looking at buyers sellers I don't excel just because of the nature. Obama bought it because of the nature of the market and because and actually. I think they stick with it and it'll they have released from last month and Bahrain. It got started -- stability. Be able to make a run the last two seasons I think it was believe that's possible. And gotten Napoli got it one step and that is victory but it's -- it's definitely defensively. -- -- It's the end as a statistic that -- -- what level of Ortiz is opiates route 200 points. We're accused of it just step -- Roll call without yesterday afternoon to look look look what our research people can -- with our ultimate -- 6% say a month from now if they're saying 910 games under 51112. Games out of first five or six out of the wild -- And a chance to move protecting Pierzynski and Gomes and Lester even who -- are. Drew lack Lackey you don't think they're gonna move any of these guys because of NASA. I don't think that they would move. Lester. Lackey who are. I do think that would move Krzyzewski. -- Maria Vasquez. If there were eleven or twelve. And I think that will probably. Probably -- looking back around the fifteenth of August just where we saw. A -- guard from last year but I don't think that they'll go in case. Big time. Scott Walker let it that they still believe that they don't -- Lester the that -- workshop will likely -- -- -- -- deal. And then. Tricky but the concern -- reported a lot. -- pictures on their team in the it is all of a sudden say we're gonna start. Ford guys who opened the season in Pawtucket next year I don't think. I don't think it works in terms of contending in the Mercury fallacies. Albums they were. I'd signing less to repeater. When do they do it and somebody wrote over the weekend -- will take six years to get that done you think the the Red Sox thing give Lester six years at market value which will be 2324. Million a year. Now I know that Google gears. The way of doing it to be creative and a salary. I I think I did the -- five years there Arctic -- the calls you a hundred here 120 million. I I don't I don't like it. Just because. I think -- all the pitching injuries it's a bad time. -- pictures you're saying -- -- to -- America. I looked kind of thing you can do -- sabathia if they want a World Series. You know they let 2000. That the World Series in their new ballpark what's really important -- them. It'll work monitored it's about the Yankees -- supported to let us so we're back that kind of extension I don't see anybody else. Right now that would give it six years -- record. I don't think. The Yankees would do it. Considering all of the money they spent on this starting pitching so I don't see anybody else out there that would do. Peter what have you heard of opinions and chattering conversations about Dustin Pedroia and the poll. On his body that apparently he has. Made us -- the best of -- and majority in the past is production is down his powers down. Well you know -- what -- that column for couples really they're not all. My initial reaction was no. I'd get. Eight. I think it all the way he plays in the -- keeps. With the breaking his hand fingers at all it. It's great for the Atlantic yet he's in his teammates. As much as any player. In game day. I understand that but I -- see in the parking lots and lots of and that's I think that's the traditional open -- paying you money. The thing. -- a made an eighteen hole lunch activation. Button at the current what worked really well taken as far as. Oregon State doesn't mean that he's not going to be a great defender. It doesn't mean -- is going to be forgotten every young players come up there at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. And pushes everybody. But the question of are we overseas like 85900. OP -- again. It's sort of the core classes because of the physical part. Final question what do you think and what to the Red Sox think they're going to get from Buchholz when he comes back. Are there any idea now. I mean I -- -- the coaches that's you know I'll talk tackle. What do you think that's them. A little bit like labor I'm really sure. All conversations lower the bar ever Q so -- You know practice we're here to get -- about -- you know it is -- -- shortcomings. And let her career and I -- about delivery and all that. But I think -- -- watching with him is available that he had to slow up as well he doesn't it. It really lost relics are -- -- in 2000 let. Mean you know -- the -- playoffs in 2000 whether he doesn't go down and. -- And it's. It is clear. Uneasiness was going out and pitching us that it is it an issue up short just can't sort of change. Peter is always a pleasure talking baseball with you thanks taken some times when instructed on the roadmap for an -- plot -- Gavin hall of Famer Dennis and Callahan on the AT&T V -- real electric Cooperstown hall of -- yeah yeah I guess he did something like Italian -- Phnom legal channels and I'll tell metropolitan great health. What is tough -- -- well that is. B -- clinical -- and redeem you choose an original member he thinks they're gonna sign last. Each fictional world in six years how we've been through this enough to know there's always an idiot.
