Next to many hand. Require board to support and it would be an opinion OP never hear any instance I'll tell us your screen there. It was going to be so anyway. We're talking about the a state of affairs with the four. Sport major teams. Right now and and -- I don't know why the other they -- just -- fascinated about it Celtics calls it barks and everybody's oh well listen you know see who's free agency if they can thank -- that everybody was so. I'm just dreaming about it and in poignant monument in the bruins' thomas'. You back -- Brady. This story to Marty just decided on equating I'm gonna take a year or office how old are gonna stop you there for -- if you make it sound as if people. Just signed off on Tim doll but it's not until our anger toward him Tom not as the longest writes taxing people still angry about the time but. While would you -- -- saying it at that you know whether paid here's why after the ravens and Nat into it at home I mean a lot of things the pages of dot. That you can get angry about the whole 124 wild but people bowl. Has that market and the Red Sox tonight I've. Fascinated I don't know why people can't move past that quicker with this team well you don't want and we had interest -- discussion I believe it was Dan who took issue with my. Observation that the intensity level. Is not nearly as strong as it was free 2004. And I think about that. I I still believe that's true yet you are correct that I'm surprised how angry people still -- About September I think is just this huge September and now we did find out. Visit is very fascinating to me that when we went over to Christmas at Fenway. If there was no audio -- -- wall to wall people all of the plays buying ticket packages and stuff in the system tickets available that's great it is a great. Not time to go out on July evening and watch the team in the you know with the weather and all. But the point is it Craig I was a me -- like how many people we're just like if you just mentioned a retired -- name may get a standing ovation. This seems to be two different groups of people one is like talk radio where. Of people and in fellowship the miserable out and -- as the house of another group over the that they can do no wrong right let's face it Larry when you go to Fenway Park you're going we are not to be miserable -- -- for a night or days -- better take it why would you be promoting misery. Well you know in the past they used to do that. But they're not doing it now it's like you don't think he had era but you do here now and I think the via. I'm fascinated by I really amazed -- ballot Texas today. Last year was last year return all the pitches down of super previous Super Bowl wins and highlights. The other day of training camp he had practiced plays out they -- known members. On the jerseys because he wanted guys to get to know people by the name enough by the number we need just always a step ahead doing things differently. Any signing people left and right he can't get it they sign ballot the -- and injured giants tight and it just. It's almost like the east teams operate like in this modest ones in the room. And I used to feel that way about the Red Sox in I don't known now in now you have the old backtracking in explaining why some of the things didn't go right. I think he started to get a clue last year when you have that dog and pony show of the day after they lose to Baltimore. Down in Camden yards -- the -- there and Francona there. And was it Larry a third guy I think was -- is the third guy. And hit the three days later to look for crap now. It's -- I mean you know and things have really unraveled forget about just the seven and 20 September you had dead John Henry barging into another radios for. This radio station everything would have been fun would be a app that 61 sentence there from 790851. 8885250850. By the way detector in Rhode Island says Larry I take issue I'll never get over that first. Giants' loss in Super Bowl number 42 and I -- not getting all operate is different than being angry. Is it different now the text or 978 says that the rate they're going the Sox are gonna need a 1978. Redux. In reverse run of the Red Sox had their fourteen and after you -- over the Yankees. Only to see -- completely disappear by the end of September and then but Heidi -- Heidi get a winning streak going and it's kind of -- with a pitching government. The only. Eight and a half -- their lives I have eight in the loss column there's a long way to go on the Yankees look good very very good right now because they've won seven in a row. This is all about streaks it's it's all about surging. It's dips in its colleagues is different than now you're looking at a team that has decimated with injuries. Players who signed a -- contracts who have not lived up to them mean Lackey hasn't Daisuke hasn't. Gonzales it's too early but he hasn't Crawford hasn't me -- you don't eat if one of these guys performed up to expectations even. They were being about a position that that that tribe people angry they purchased a new car. In the transmissions follow before they get out of pocket -- not sounds like one of my cars let's have a 7790. Rate 51888525. 0850. Danny you're next on Sports Radio -- don't mind getting. Well before it out before I get to Barack ST okay I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna just. Point out why I'm angry with the Red Sox okay yeah yeah like -- climate that you cracked in like that that's. That's a reference to capitalism -- a nice guy can get noticed but I'm too busy eating my stones in it wasn't here I didn't hear. Yeah I know I of course eating Eric -- didn't hear anything about slandering you like that but anyway -- If you ask me why I think religious organizations that since -- And every. Why did you and anger exists. Since he came out of the -- -- disorganization. Because because if you -- back you know the old adage is if you don't want to -- -- doomed to repeat them right there but there's also another -- Should also look at what the what made you successful the biggest -- here that this organization has in cart. -- they brought in seeing what the bridges between -- and into cat. And when they brought the team and it took one had to get to the seventh game of the NLC gas and then they went and won the championship and also walk. So hope and -- -- ignore what they want that would trade and free agency and baseball decisions. The baseball decision that would do that as things get led to business. Let my business that poor it would develop organically. Don't have the brought. When it distorted what -- feel like -- got to manufacture the business in order to get a beat. Guy irate if you make a good point right right you know a lot in and to use the line if they build it they will calm and all they have to do is build a winning team and of course we saw. How they reaped profits based on winning not the other way you're right I think -- address that Danny. Talking about this insatiable monster that is the business side of the operation. And your right. The cart is in front of the horse right now. It's just so it's an end you know once they they said that the low -- in many as you the other day -- -- -- on this one good thing about a collaborative. Decision making process source CD yet to get -- well whatever it is that I like the resources -- India needs. And I like to refer to it is that. The poll you know one guy complaining about what happened you know but I believe going everywhere he said that I didn't want. All right I said AM if you barged into my radio station that was at the principal owner. Make that decision but -- benefit Danny but that of John Henry makes that decision then he's overruling. He's. You know lot. Don't know -- You if you the principal owner forget about the I'll forget about anybody else your sign the checks can't. Turnaround because that they are your your star ball player alleged tar ball player doesn't perform -- somebody else that leadership. Let me just fiddling let me finish the statement he also made an and a lot of people visit. He said I was not in favor of that I think because I thought we were -- left front happy okay. US and its meaning less scary right. Did this the first you should complain that I'm ever involved in -- conversation what -- complaint that don't. You point I'll take I don't know when I agree -- okay but I wouldn't it got. But that they were -- they two well hit it at the OK right baseball reasons right -- yet. I -- one out. I don't want to. Use -- -- the metal I don't wanna I don't I don't. -- -- apparently ready yet I heartily I don't want to -- might this might might just you know and that. Up point. The way. Here's the Danny you don't do it in retrospect. When Danny Danny again. Danny again. Again Danny and I'm brought another Democrat here successes -- files and fathers in orphan or failure is an orphan. And disown -- there was failure. Okay it's 'cause it was failure John Henry with robbing in the other direction you want nothing to do what Crawford doesn't. -- fact he was willing to blame somebody else is that good leadership I don't. Well let me. And -- happening to meddling owner and popped out situation -- right -- do you learn from probably probably want to know that I. -- -- -- -- -- -- It's just Johnny most from -- and I'm happy to steal the ball again did you probably denial about what a night. I kept being one. And it. Went back and well. We came back. And talking to. Well he went up into the kind. And again. He can't. -- and saying you understand. That -- up and somebody else. I'm not. It reminds -- Clinton on the minds exactly did he blame for this -- did not. Blame that on the monster. -- -- -- And I think it is a man and don't technical. What Danny did anyone think we can say about -- -- at least you're not bitter --
