Animal are with us and Major League Baseball network an intentional talked to men's Christian Fauria -- days with MFB there were already. The recalls I think Kevin on the board when we came back from breaking the news about Resnick a steel coming to Boston. And all three before inning gave the phone number this is a precursor to get John Carlos Stanton and -- words they're bringing a guy -- boards they can free up maybe a move keep Betts is a trade option. And bring another outfielder in so they can a move says producer Craig to get Stanton here. Is that just wishful thinking what's your take -- where the Marlins really are going to keep or moves and Carlos Stanton after the season. What they wanted the Marlins have kept themselves way above flow the entire season way better than people probably have them on the board beat Mike. Great job about a great impact. NC but. The one thing you can't teach in this game right and a power. Jon Karl standing at the right and -- -- and making their Mark McGwire back today you know had a guy kicking the ball 500 feet you can't teach that. It -- -- -- to deal him I don't know whether financially for their own organization. But if they're willing to deal him which is seemed like -- more -- In the past going by in the past would trade. But yeah I think the Red Sox. I dislike about ten other teams would love to see Juan Carlo you know John crossed and in the -- that lineup and you can imagine the damage he can do -- -- part. That's been negotiation the kind the scene between David Sampson and the Marlins brass but I think that you know this is where you get creative. And crafty to figure out try to get our team right back on the board after a miserable I'd seen him 2014. You know a year from you know win -- World Series and -- If there's a club position player that you would pay to watch you view anywhere any park in America took the money out of your wallet paid to get -- put the LB press pass away your ticket by member of the public. Is Stanton it as a position player or is it Trout in if it's a pitcher is -- Hernandez because Fenway fans have a chance to see Hernandez and Trout. In back to back series here. Yeah I mean Trout. Stanton week old dynamic I can't remote stoppers their their biggest. On the field every day and it makes you a while and yes so he's in that category and the guy I don't stop and -- take batting practice Monty oh in a dugout watched. And down yet so because the guys like to say that there's a dynamic out of probably five in the entire big -- just go Walt and they are you know whether -- -- -- 123 or who cares but they're -- also. And in all three -- moral and there's a ton of them but. He's a guy that if you can try to make a deal for he's a guy that I wanted to seat try to make a deal for you others can -- the situation out. You can get a feel that our year and this year he's proven that killing not yet he's young he's a dynamic in the mark are willing to figure out a way. Deduce something after the Red Sox he must. So you know Kevin so the pace of play has been discussing here for the for the past four days especially since rob -- Byrd was. Voted Commissioner of Baseball which led me to this -- the -- all the for ESPN. Wrote he says the pace of play situation is much like the issue -- PED testing. They'll not be changed and told the players union decides to make it changed now. Obviously it feels like you know that the rule guardian their target -- a party what does he mean by saying that that that the unions gonna have to did it get a ball to make this change. I don't know I don't have enough information about that to be ops would be -- -- -- basically been -- discussion. And while that knowledge you know not to get involved in some low quality or there's very involved in everything -- you know made that their. All current or yeah Gregory -- whether that if you don't while our batters to about about a buck what are you wanna put a pitch count. On the pitchers -- to stop you gotta get you can just make this -- like get -- up so -- -- go through that the other cycles but like that I don't have enough information on how. Can make this game faster we all have opinions got to make -- -- -- dollar outlet but the batter to lead the batter's box you want put in the batter's box. Put a pitch count on the pitcher ever at all back -- whatever it. I don't know but there is a way to make this game a tad faster which is coming up with the right solution and we will see you I'll let you move forward. Kevin thanks a lot for coming on and you're tied up against time today we appreciate you joining us and thanks goodness some incentive to -- we look toward to the Major League Baseball network intentional -- sit down interview with -- Davis whenever that's happening. You guys got a -- -- crabmeat that's Camelot era and 937 WE.
