-- write it down now what it Adam what did Adam Myers saying and yet that's ever jets win a game and the patriots -- and yes OK cover what is that OK -- they don't. Whatever Adams says. You're Dallas right last major Dallas last name. Now I don't and I donated a bed and I don't I -- have more lack debts from -- money Roberts eleven and bedding in I just don't. Okay are you 7-Eleven people out there -- watch out for a lean mean machine stroll and into your shop and can rally demanding all your solar. It's Lenny -- -- -- house. Lack of an in person. I don't when he under a good -- -- writers you concede is not wearing them tonight but I'd be out of you know this season contests now. Appreciate it Monica -- on Friday nights usually it's pretty he's dress is now like up like a freaking professional. He's ourselves a blue jacket he's got this nice shirt on underneath these -- the big boy issues focus on that show they actually show your shoes they Google I shot they have Dugas had resentment network. They put they they show the shoes. And John where in the big boy shoes and he when he got size thirteen now -- well 1212. So you what you see on the set as -- -- really ended that's at I now or so mill -- you know other -- those store permit me. Are trying to make me look good -- is ready for his close up in the movies he has you know what you should do some time just on was put like a fake -- in the Chinese food in your nose so it was a good strip and when -- on the show. Probably call me back after that let's say. Really people don't like -- more they'll feel sorry for -- like you know a lot like it feel sorry for -- -- -- and what's out there are people that you feel there's one yes well I want you are buying -- you heard the whole thing yesterday. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It was riveting. Lot of attention because he's done -- borderline right now about B of snapping really I mean really particular animal -- somebody -- in knots it's a question. I said I wrote a column yesterday you like reasons that keep an iron them yeah com and now. Fire him. -- Wednesday yesterday or today before they play game Friday. A day idiot. Or is it to you guys for a long -- -- agencies and maybe even that's not sure I don't think he's a less disease I don't I do. I think he's gonna last. Mean they're gonna gonna obviously have a plan you know OK he's. Who's gonna step -- -- be talking of that guys I mean who knows who it is too old guard if they do what it has to be coming up soon though Mike maybe. If if and and not the wins and losses even matter anymore but for the most apartment coming up right before the Yankees series maybe September 10 while it's insane -- regarding forward after that's why -- within ten days of September 4 -- -- he has and that's just to gasp but I think it's an educated -- That makes -- just wait till the end of season. With its season ends October 4 firearm and guys that don't think that I'm waiting to the -- that your -- dangling him out here in a -- might. Expose him and although it's -- it's a whole lot more -- -- -- -- bad behavior I don't thanks. I don't think the only thing he could do now is come in studio and actually punched. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I wrote I'll come I don't know he's out already in your head you're John and read Tom -- you whoever the brain trust is nobody you know he's out. Why wait that's my point what's the best reason for waiting I can't think -- well it's not only -- Let's support invoke average -- for twenty -- yeah well that's status I know he's pretty good -- -- even if the if he goes you know -- one loss during dad's gonna ask you this -- if you know he's out. What's the point of of of president seasons -- it may -- have that bad. 'cause they don't want to call another press conference naming the new manager Eric given the reasons why -- they've made Iran and all by the way how did you know everyone thinks that's he's Lucchino spit right. And what is Lucchino what is the guys say when they're asked about that its collective. Thing right right well guess what. I'd like to know is who brought up the name. Bobby Valentine for us it had a pop up I'm sure I Larry -- well that's -- you're not sure Joseph I'm probably only know how do you know like I know I don't depended heavily wonderland but I'm not and that's my dad's an educated well. Were destined -- -- volcano would just seem normal yeah but we don't really know. I don't think it was Terry Francona. Just as he that you don't be good for this job Bobby's best knowing full well that he get Bobby's gay NE SPN. I'd -- probably it's your Robin Lenny megs John. I can -- -- only get brief. -- -- -- -- a great with the Boston red you don't what is -- trade but also rents out straight guy a little bit but they. -- -- I won't let them appear maddening company ended to swap the whole team. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Would glom onto that even though the Red Sox have lessened there payroll a better with a big -- another Garza's team because he spits it grosses me output. 82 games behind in the only to a 101000 couldn't beat. I lots and don't -- don't draw their 2000 when the Red Sox it's not a bad spot it's not the players' fault it's the damn people in Tampa some other people you gotta wake him up -- you know it's afternoon nap but if I had known and -- that awful stadium to announce -- bad location. Tour. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And relaxed point. Well when he gets its pitching staff back is gonna have a better team why why is John I wanna come here and reconstruct his pitching staff and all the -- -- known and unknown they have plenty injuries here in Toronto yet John and those guys are coming back that's all I know I know and that is a bit out of his -- he's a tank wasn't there all you and then coming back saying this guys asking and Ed not the sole reason because they don't have a ton of talent but. Though the whole AL east is bill loaded trees. Exactly but they've lost all -- most of those who pitches in less club's chances and I was asking why there's so you know 61 and 75 that's. Yeah but I mean it's your hard pressed to find eight team outside -- the Red Sox were their number one and two starters were both miserable. -- that was a major reason why but that's it -- -- -- you can find injuries on every -- team sure not the straight guy -- why would come along yeah buckled up and down and took him yet -- inmates had to get -- -- Larry -- -- -- -- -- so I -- all of that you can say in this is not again I don't defend Bobby Valentine for no reason here but it you know. It would be a vastly different conversation we're having right now right -- -- were in the wild card. Absolutely. Different you know at this idea of -- -- -- getting through that's I you know I really. What's really cracking him up right now I think it's a fact that. He can't win this team could be 101215 games under five when it's 00 yeah and and this has stunned them I'm and I I really thought not just him I think he thought that -- they would. Turn this around and be decent and maybe. If these incidents and come up. Okay I'll bite my tongue. I'm trying get this team for five games of -- fight and it -- while won't go anywhere but I'll be rehired next year. But Ali spiced arms open -- day after day in that defies. You know what it is still on he's a guy. Cares about his legacy this is going to be his last manager will stop no one else is gonna I've never wanted to Fallujah this. Failure of a season. So he's gonna look at that look back boy you know I had one of the worst seasons as a Red Sox manager since the nineties. Now not only that that the worse. Period in terms of Tora boil it all in LA after a joke at the office no laughing stock craze and a card next on the planet Mikey show cranked. It says -- here may be re hire somebody that's from another country. Take our calls its clay like in Clay Buchholz. Likened the lottery clay or yeah yeah cycling go ahead. -- Might want to quit or -- we don't recognize that the players -- -- this one. This year Europe the year we got rid of the poison. And that's the highlight of the -- is that. We got rid of our street big Cha Chia has been. That and -- by the year's end -- that story right. -- that's that but. What I wanna know it all the Red Sox shouldn't because. And that big show. Must move. Morning and sure I forget DNC. And you guys not yet occurred and Bobby slack but -- callers in the -- interpret that all got about BP. I'd learned that there's a part in the face of a step. I don't understand what the flip flopped it because remember when the Red Sox were hurt in that perhaps aren't -- the earlier in the year and not steal a line I -- seven. At -- But they. Pure weren't concerned about BP this guy's McLaren who joked he's not doing anything for players he's on our our. Our captains would you question. Picked up the I don't understand what the the full flop it -- and. I mean I think it's been divided school on him of for the whole season. He's had his defenders like me at times are dependent basically saying it's not his fault that these guys arm -- I was watching Beckett starts in on what's what's this guy Caledonia to the team that course Ellsbury goes down and there's a ready made excuse. For team not to be as good as they were last year when Ellsbury was great. This was one thing after another. But Bobby Valentine can look at legitimately pointers they want to and this isn't helping my record here and remember we're on the up. Go -- pop went down they still had a chance yet they were still kind of impact play one game and Heatley yeah. -- by the they expect outward form what you did last year molecular aberrations in the heat. He's not a power. I don't so we don't know -- -- -- we that we you know what is he that's tough it's tough to define what he has artists say this if he's not a power guy like he was last year ever again. Then you've got to look at that year is something he did special vitamins because it was it was -- -- it was -- Brady Anderson. Type of break away from what he normally was -- hasn't resumed that behavior that kind of performance. He never had it before that so you know while we all want him to be the Hillary was last year and maybe years. I don't know what is what what's gonna set that up he didn't look it doesn't look like that player this year does he. Now and as he came back from the entry. I -- dislocated shoulders. Tough thing to come back -- anyway. Well -- well lucky you didn't come back got my shoes ready. And -- point is this is a -- season for him when you have a season like he had an MVP and any of the year type season. What you really want to see especially the guy is prone to injuries. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It is well in Europe to -- -- -- while you're next after next year you know if he's there were any here there right right. Column if he can do it again yeah. Now he's -- play 150 to do it at -- get -- -- high on base percentage walk a little more hit to left and and forget the home runs and steal a hundred bases he's got the -- -- -- -- steal ninety bases -- on this and not anymore I think you've lost half a -- -- general idea that there I don't know these hundreds -- -- Andy -- and -- -- presented if he's not if you hit 32 home runs that's and that's going to be thirty less opportunity to steal a base. But walking is key to that is not a classic leadoff guy that much we know.
