I got block you know L -- All. -- not being brought to come back in light of -- rebuilding your rotation I understand the reality what they're probably gonna do this. I just.

And he's closed -- Koji go wrong just what are called out of all this coach he's going to be the main -- the one got its -- -- probably Stan. Currently. That's Koji Lackey forty year old Andrew Miller. As a tool is to win fifty games out here to really get admitted. You've got four guys that are performed at ten pitches and he just out of Floyd -- you that it makes her come on let's let's see what you get return. For John Lackey made you get one of these items are as a -- OK you get -- what number of epic Ramsey went for. For com what does it Masterson. Gave the tip at best ultra elect three other prospect Oprah prospects above them. Got to get more for Lackey. Absolutely got to get more for Lackey. Nash is a free agent year lackeys spec ECU of all the leverage the science -- Africa two year deals will be getting -- few years of John Lackey apps again give normally give the masters. I so Lewis definitely paying ponting and yell yelling here I I don't monitor -- really is no I'm an emotional mess right now. Or do we have ready to go the K and be our reaction. Are photographs of them -- John -- Red Sox expected to give Major League ready outfielder and pitcher. Back for Lackey might select ready outfielder let's let's let's see. What we Deepak okay that maybe it's -- this Scotty battery likes I don't beat it beat the virus may be -- You get to bars and a big league pitcher ready. Hey you know what let's see would you give back -- return elected -- wait for the sets but this thing. I'm not crazy about a gathering info on -- big picture the one area they lost as they don't have his outfield power they've acquired that released the of the got -- that long term. I've come to grips with that let's let's just see what you get back for -- the folks at her Lackey rather. Folks -- Red Sox stats point out the guy who wrote the article that I was quoting from there was ripping the trade from an Oakland perspective -- getting Jon Lester. He get this cross pollination out there's probably a giants fan. Indices of big giants and the authors so Leo basic of the grain of salt but from our sister station Camby are out there. In the Bay Area here are some quote -- these old guys -- shows -- Basically just people call its listeners reacting to the trade okay 957 game. So I went through the a's roster in my head. During the break and you know one. Since this is the one guy. That I don't wanna give up for journalist I know you're on the wagon but it's one of those like that you know when you have a beer and at first you TCI and time. Now about this many have another wanna go count I can't stand -- that's where you're where exactly. I don't know more I'm thinking about this deal the more and more I absolutely love it for the -- I mean. Yes you you loose -- Syria hurts but you you're not a recital next year after the season anyway you get a giant Jon Lester who is a guy. Is built to win the playoffs he will be your number one guy. The more I think about this trade the less -- -- and I didn't like it when I first heard written in -- right now and with all due respect to -- -- Yeah you just said that you look at what. Lester and assessments can give you on any given day. If a playoff series in the first round goes five games blasters impacted one games just -- all major cleanup hitter with a potentially impact. All five. Let's just game one starter so they're ping -- into a little well understand Lester starting over everybody. Some larger Jamaica's first postseason appearance Sonny -- it was very good for them last year upstart Lester. Scott Kazmir have a great year. Do you trust. Mr. Scott Kazmir Mexico's game -- game five and you move. You move on -- big and it -- game three game sevens and you win thanks to come. Most of the -- is there any god against her show so that will be that will be get to popcorn ready. They're looking at the Sampras and agrees Bernard idle time and I've always been advocates for him as -- -- -- -- losses and incursions went better than you name whatever it is there gotten so that's probably -- -- got the perspective that they do on that but I can no longer view it's money -- money pitcher who's gonna pitch in big money games. -- I'd keep everybody posted on what the return is Miller. And John. They -- there -- any there there in the same situation -- if they -- the same thing we are out there right -- and resigning after next year anyways muscle gets on the -- real fast crank. -- don't go ahead you're on. Take gently on that. They have the block who are absolute repression airborne sort of part about competitive you know I love the guy we're getting here. But my biggest concerns that we haven't for one year. -- kind of think back -- I would. He signed a four year deal and actually. To get this could be created. So I just the way the reflective it's going right now -- in the next deal. We're not a great deal so I really feel it's a one year thing I just don't think network it's almost. Yes it's a one year thing Lester doesn't resign says -- is tanks and is it worth keeping. Today's gonna look a lot worse upon further review. Brings Jerry -- upon further I don't know what it could down. The lower gothic whatever will she was Lester -- we'll see you assessments was -- besides you have you about another hour. Hour fifty minutes either make you -- make this day works for you. You haven't so that's already knew what was gonna happen it's sort of like you weren't prepared for this to good Lamar activist. And -- division I mean it's already -- it just it's insane -- what just happened here in the last two and a half hours. That he's been traded. If you confirming it they don't know what it is yet Saint Louis -- -- to Saint Louis and nobody knows people are confirmed on him report lectures goat though. These traded Lackey and Lester. And peavy and the -- attorney Andrew Miller in OC. This World Series team in less than a year ago just lost that two guys that dominated in the post season due to win it. They got they acquired PB nine will be dig a couple of arms -- and deal is another piece and Andrew Miller. I actually -- I feel for the guys in the locker right now if you need to show up at the ballpark tomorrow and elegant you know -- you. Wanna get that -- well. Who we are gonna get to that the reaction within the clubhouse now that's gonna go over on the field and we -- -- -- -- interview at 105.
