It all starts with rookie QB Andrew Luck for the Colts. It will be interesting to see Talib in the mix and if the Pats can stop the run. The Colts like to establish the run early to get play action working for Luck. A pass rush will be key today as well.
Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Luvollo joins the program to talk about Red Sox injuries and the MLB Replay process
Our number two Chris aligning with sports Sunday Sports Radio WEEI 6177797937. Then not all Red Sox some pretty much all Jon Lester threw the first hour lie detectors weighing in on the AT&T tax line on that will get to that just a moment. Out final round of the masters is going on a maturity people. Into getting into what is much science tiger. And without Phil as well he Mickelson showed up I think late Thursday night she flew in and Friday after energy is flied out. With Phil Mickelson. I he had a tough weekend are tough early going Richardson first round in a local guy Keegan Bradley struggled missed But there are some big games of the top the leaderboard some exciting. I young names of the Jordan's BT's twenty years old he's cash to win the masters I he'd be the youngest winner since 1979. LEB younger. Then the tiger was the first time you want it. And one of the things that really stood out to me is speaking with some people were down there this week to cover the toward talks and these young guys and it get back to tiger. The complete and water. Lack of off. Around around Tiger Woods to these guys are too young you think about twenty years old 21 years old with somebody like camera some would like walker. In somebody like Blix the Swedish guys and second right now and he's. He's like 28. You know some of these guys too young to really remember or at least have played with tiger against tiger. When he was hitting level like we never seen before the PGA tour earlier received since Jack. And they look at him now a Zagat shoot 77 on the weekends. Is that cats really contention anymore where is I mean Aaron I'm not old and your and all of you remember when. Final round tigers in the lead it was done forget about it I mean one year in the PGA YE Yang those big shots out late and ended up beating and yet that epic battle with Bob May. I nearly beat him in the PGA but it would for the most part just wasn't close he would get a lead and he was one of the best closers in the we'd seen in the sport. But it's just it's different now that's a different vibe. Around Tiger Woods and it's gone from seemingly a foregone conclusion that he would get to nineteen majors is seemingly foregone conclusion that he won't eat next year. Does play majors this year. Is give forty years old Jack won three. After he needs five Jack won three after forty to two of those were when he was forty and the masters in 986. Was kind of an out Larry's 46 years old. Tiger would be a hall of fame career from here on out five major championship all career to get in nineteen. I think it's interesting not only his fall from grace just as a player. In terms of winning majors the was in my opinion at least the best player on were last year he had five or six wins a torch to win major. But the bigger thing to me is just how some of these younger players perceive him do tiger as a contention it used to be regarded. The average stroke. The average round rather up a stroke in. In in the in the final round on Sundays when tiger was in contention real just kind of melted aged just. Folded around with a few exceptions mentioned Bob revealed in Nickels and it's good battles but. For the most part it was just tiger's world everybody else's playing for second they were on him Ernie Els just not Now is young guys just young enough to cocky enough and don't really remember that at least they didn't play through it. And they're saying how statute 75 on the weekends with what's not ID in the turn now but. I should be upon Sunday Bubba Watson very very likable guy. And I Jordan who were finding out a lot about trying to become the youngest masters winner a long time quick birds update we'll get back to the calls against 617779. 7937. Cordially NC DM IA's doing great to get the good news on him that was definitely a concern that you know DM IAA was. Out I got hit looked like in the that it from I thought it was illegal but not dirty if that makes sense I don't think there was intent to injure there. It was just one of those times you're trying to make a hockey play get the principal point contact up higher and you won it. So I thought it was an illegal hit not a dirty hit but by a help not the that you concussion translated to on the ice Thursday that part we don't know just yet. But Patrice Bergeron it sound like is fine I he missed the third period yesterday that would would have been a huge concern. I outside to go. There's not too many guys you point to and say this more important to the bees and Bergeron two way player in hockey this year. Obvious he's good according to coach Julianne and Chris Kelly looks like still day to day with that back injury so some. Relatively speaking. Minor bumps and Bruce is going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs but you know these guys especially Alec Bergeron if he could be on the ice on Thursday against the red he's going to be there. I HTT tech slide is 37937. It's like grab a few of these real quick a one Dexter says eight times over David Price let Lester walked. While you make Casey price a better pitcher at this stage of his career early younger I can cost more money. And now your bidding against everybody else you've got the cost control guy. Housing cost control we get the guided the under your control rather. The of the exclusive negotiating window with wants to stay here to guide it. As more in depth track record in the post season to sign him. And that point it's not a knock on price and gives great pitcher. But if you're looking at what you can do it even easier than that that will save you some money relative to what price can get on the open market signed last. I know detector can you imagine having Stanton in Boston did it forty plus homers easy architecture from western mass. Two words about prospects Daniel yep they can go hard the other way. I another one here says agree with you order percent top of the rotation guys talk about Lester innings a year post seasons died. Given the cash over five years five for one and should get it done. And out finally is Lester stats are comparable to average career he walked away from 244 million Lester has been better than Homer Bailey and look at the contract. That he just signed a few textures telling me the gets four clocked at. Well evening parade for a UConn for the championships I assume the men and women together out both of them winning the national title. Yes as tougher as Turkey's but happy for Kevin Ollie who now is the next. Hot coaching named to go from college to the end beauty after eight seasons. But undefeated in the NCAA tournament ally guys can say that are at six or 77797937. is in New Jersey he's up next When then. Just try to not cute bit Ali thank you and I can't believe that a low ball. Jon Lester like they don't agree that you like a side impact by one and whatever argument sake. We have been out of my. But you see a lot of contracts for your team that have gone got into the contract stratosphere and some of them have really worked out so well. But for a number like dapper Lester what he's so willing to stay. I agree I was surprised. When I saw what the number was at the end of spring training where the Red Sox know Lester broke off toxin seems like a a low ball contract terms of dollars in a low ball contract thirty years. definitely. god I G I mean lucky probably let out a little bit like that way radio reluctant I had. Yeah I mean yeah I'm with you thanks to the fall being a former yankees fans perspective. They're never shy about spending dollars. That Lester contract is makes sense and I've said this a few times. Because just getting back to this point I do think my gut still tells me they get a Don. Gut feeling they still get this contract done because I hate candidate it player just wants too much just wants to be a Boston too much. You back going to be here at the expense of taking deal it's foolish and a four year seventy to eighty million dollar contract before which. At ball way below market terms years below market terms the average annual There's no upside here it sounded like a Red Sox blown away with a give you four years but here's point six million a year. Which is probably more than you gonna get I guarantee each and every year on the open market that it could at least. I still think Lester would walk away from crystal he'd say no. But I could look at that is saying the Red Sox in good faith effort to try to. Do with last year what they've done with other guys which is over pay an average annual dollars but try to take that discounted terms of the number years seventy. I can't say that. I can't see it as they came under years came under dollars 6177797937. Bill isn't busted up next they've built. They would subject. who visual. You know what about. You guys keep in the world. Could together okay. guys they look at the guys renewed deal if everybody involved. Make him have the option to. Who boarded deals rivals ordered to the guys will. Make it work. So real simple. So three years of his make sure Israelis and three years seventy million. And then assuming he stays healthy another two years at how much. Ordered me at all. That would come out to volley at 5110. About then you know what would actions. YouTube. 120. It was cute guys so. Yeah It it it any guaranteed dollars sport. That that's just not gonna work for the players work for last. Well hope what works right now what made two big guy a two year deal seven million. With a guarantee. Appeared to remain nimble. The two more years of targeted what are enviable. Well let's get. That that that the five year 120 million dollar contract. Where. OK I guess that that's reasonable but I mean you if you're guaranteeing the money that it's not three years in the two years to five years. And yet we could what three years didn't work out three years it will be created numerous believe that you develop very animated. You know. Yeah I mean I like well. I guess I can't get what you in there you know again trial period so to speak at three year seventy million dollar. You know test blown the CP states LP and see if he still producing. The news saying guaranteed fifty million after that which is five for once money. Why would John again you'd think about it okay hometown discount know we heard the operator gets excited about it. to get past the idea of a hometown discount meeting complete insanity. Seventy million dollars even over a three years average dollars a lot of money. But it still. 50% of what can get out in the open market. You know why would I take seventy million guaranteed even for three years when I could just double that six years guaranteed at 140 million. You know six I can get that extra seventy million dollars over three more seasons just to go out in the open market. That would be a great team friendly kind of idea but Lester were being eyed Joseph and Wakefield once the way HL. What they've done so much for the in the you know 78 years. That burning up I don't know are already up at. I agree with UN and the injury concern for me is that they're now we are talking about Clay Buchholz we'd be having added I merely different conversation. But with Lester even a year it was bad in 2012. Still pitch to plus innings. Yeah I mean you don't get a picture wondering about that party and you don't hate you guys brought there get a going to be offered. And I are I think I really like the attitude that you just want the behavior I don't understand why the Internet situation black. We're not talking about giving the guy a 140. I'm not all that with the amount of money more book like the object audit. Well he had I think the Red Sox kind of Hewitt in the regard as well that's why I wasn't completely floored when he said OK if we here opera was the most that they had. I'll put out there by the time they broke off negotiations. But I'd be and neighbor of 400. Yell now and a and a big. Average annual value a Ford seventy for is an opera that you know the players get a that's an opera that it's designed to be turned out. Yeah independent though they looked like but based on the yacht I don't know it. All the the PR stunt getting negative PR because I think I had tickets ridiculous they have any Lester did lie to me if he blocks away at the end of the day. And and the Red Sox look back and in the end flick back and say. And they could of they could negotiate they could out of spring training but the only opera percent beat the teams the only one's gonna look bad that's an. Aerial my opinion darker integrated you know integrated I'm sorry you know it made it. It's the same age and it did Dustin Pedroia has I can't think of his name off my head to similar Pedroia as we negotiated down discounts the This situation it is thought here we cannot I mean update completely done park are now completely. It sounds like till the end of the season got to do have an exclusive negotiating window. Went thanks for the college and they've exclusive negotiating window with Lester. After the season is over and that it's free agency. But you know in my mind even if the Red Sox were come back with a big number in the fall. But it even gets to. Reagents even gets to the point were other teams are our ticketing contracts are offers a Lester you're probably spending more than what you have spent. It just get the deal done now. You just avoid any possibility any any chance did you rate in the another team another suitor and unlike David Ortiz we can't you know we had a debate about Ortiz is going to be even a market that is. And I thought maybe lot of people but absolutely now. That's fine with Lester there's no debate right. I mean when I can debate the fact that it thirty year old going on 31 year old lefty it's starting pitcher with a great post season track records that market. We know that that's the case there's going to be money thrown at this. So you have the opportunity. To not only negotiate exclusively with him up or you even touch or even Free agency. It to get an offer on the table to sign this guy if they're not able losing the player beat. I signing into a deal that maybe goes outside their comfort zone because now they worry about free agency not to worry about other offers them. You could have made a better fate in my mind decide than these reported figures in at these numbers are right you know he's not taking. It's an it's designed to be refused to keep brought out their deceit it's a hit proper. I don't think organ necessarily buy that I think that this mark baseball banner that. That they and as long as you're in line with keeping Lester some cables don't want that at any high price and that's fine that's your opinion I disagree by. It any band that wants Jon Lester back is valued at his team. It and understand just what the market is looking for the seventy's at It's an insult. Text messages committed 37937. AT&T like. Texas is Red Sox have too many pitches in the system they had the upper hand. Now that it's does its thing is too many pitchers in this is have a lot of starting pitching depth they have a lot of potential. As allowed by hope and is better than Jon Lester obese Kerr shot why not. But you know what you have in Jon Lester. You don't know what you have yet Henry and that goes to my point of if you're gonna have some of these cost control pre arbitration arbitration guys up. Lester got the money to do. He could have a a lot of money coming off the books over the next read of where years. Yet a pitcher John Lackey threw for 500000 dollars on next season. In NA and it not a salary cap sport but it sport I care about a 189 million dollar luxury tax threshold for the at least they're from last. I that to take three years the market's already at five to six. years as Lester won't get 140 on the open market I disagree I think he will. I the Texas is give Lester one of these two deals. Or for a hundred or seven and 12611. if the offer candidate for for a hundred then I would say you know the Sox made an effort. They made shots try to sign him and take battled down discounted terms of the year when it for par seventy it. and a few text is going back to a couple calls as a wide world Lester take three year deal and a trial period. We can get five years guaranteed and I completely agree this is an interesting text here get this one before the break. I you know I'm not entirely sure why everyone has the phrase 110 for five I should get it done because he had no idea. What will get it done in theory. Yet that would be a hometown discount. 111 for five years an option six and eight I have no way of knowing. Whether that would get it done so he's looking at 5110. I just keep coming back that number because I look at. What the market would probably and keep going back to guys like Cole Hamels you know reasonable comparable to last year's regular season numbers I see six. In 144. EC 23 and change per year so take roughly that average annual value. 43 in his case it's going to take a year back it five years old hometown discount. But he's not leaving and and the billions of dollars That's why I come back to that number I'll get it done I have no idea what I'd be willing to go to say. 150 over 520 million a year probably. Start pushing diablo or we'll talk. You see what the number but a number I have in mind. And a lot of people have in mind they think 22 million a year twenty to 22 million a year years and college day. Five years a 10210 million dollars 6177797937. The point though I had no idea we don't know. What gets I can tell you this though. Ward seven he doesn't get it on told you that before knowing. That that was the for the Jon Lester turned out we get back to your calls coming up next we'll talk war. A Red Sox get to the Bruins as well and what touch and the Celtics before the end of the show as well get to 4 o'clock Chris Blondie with Sports Radio. WE yeah.
Villani doesn't understand the Red Sox' approach to the negotiations with Jon Lester for an extension. Sure, you have to start somewhere, but their offer was so off base, it was almost insulting. He wonders if the Red Sox truly want Lester in the future and if they don't, WHY!?!
The Red Sox will have the proverbial log jam in the outfield when Shane Victorino returns - what should they do? Send Jackie Bradley back down, make a trade or something else...Butch and Buck discuss.

He -- my two little organizations. This has put together very well even though locals -- rebuilding. Comes home with a different look what you've noticed -- -- -- moment and then -- went -- and all these teams have in common that. On the normal Wimbledon so. We have to be able to messed intensity just like us and Iran -- footprint -- purpose so -- we have been really the play comes our. Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork here on NFL Sunday brought -- my -- natural casing franks -- for the -- blue box. At your favorite -- KM celebrate something. -- let's start because you have to start here when you talk about the Indianapolis Colts with their quarterback Andrew Luck I found it interesting. That the -- The interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts -- area and told south Allen Tony elf that. He thinks that a lot of people are taking cheap shots at Andrew Luck jaguars safety Dawan Landry. Really laid a -- Into the into the head of Andrew -- he got penalized for it according to Bruce area a lot of people are doing it even when he -- people are taking shots out of -- -- see -- at least anecdotally with my own eyes I don't see that -- force and other quarterbacks do you guys know nobody else. The gophers got. That it didn't accidents do you wanna protect the quarterback when you -- -- -- protected by the deadly accident but I don't keep. More than any -- as a coach you've seen it. He's too good morning within your coach so there's some sort some examples -- -- the same time I can say I think he's thinking -- -- -- with. Trying to give the -- them -- -- -- so that it. Wanted to -- because -- today. I yeah I actually heard this discussion on -- radio this week. Started screaming -- my radio when I heard. The absolutely idiotic. Sports Radio talk show topic of don't think it's great they're operating line a lot. Let me just say this OK as politely as I -- Tennessee. It that way beyond fantasy I think nightmare. Yeah look it's a good quarterback in the NFL right now I won't even take -- he's not even close is completion percentage is 57 point five. He's got ten touchdowns. And nine interceptions he's fumbled the ball seven times his quarterback rating for the year 79 point one. Now the colts are probably surprising people with their overall record and he's good. He's probably not even as -- as Robert. -- from the third right now. Here's the problem so I'm not sure who flew into I didn't hear I have a feeling I know this. That if you were to rip the name tag off take the number off make the skin color neutral not -- my team. People make those comments would pick in the lockout. They could except for that he'll be -- but does that -- yet so that was the point is. A lot of those comments come from where it was drafted from. You know what the future's -- -- what the staff. The stat line doesn't matter you a lot of this a lot of this comes from that to me that sort of handicap in the goes in the analysis of proof just look at what's on field. He's a good young quarterback he's got a lot of potential he was drafted in the right place the whole complexion of the -- Argument is so ass and I did such an outing of members of that opinion. It's amateur hour stuff I think we all understand that and I think it puts too much pressure on the -- that. He is he's a he's a player is going to be your mood to play in this league and he's a guy which we'll build -- and build a program. Why you have to take it that this sort of nonsense. Just you know I know this. It's just trying to get more of the post -- write notes that he's a very that he he doesn't play like a repeat what. Maybe that's the best compliment you -- you missed this deep thinker I like we when he does a lot of good things out there. He looks like a guy who's been in the league for a few years but he is not. He's the second best rookie quarterback playing right yes but I think Robert Griffin the third Betty Beth -- he's one of those guys that has happened up. He's one of Cordoba had the opportunity to play in the pro style offense that he was in college. It's really but Saxony right now in these bear the thought of his rookie season does that look at the start of his rookie season the first game he played he threw for over 300 yards. Through ball for what 35 times a game you know president and everybody throw for 300 yards in the NFL nowadays what here's here's it not as a rookie. I don't know. -- -- -- -- well when you watched -- -- -- -- what you see this sort of bothering him so it's better than the rest of the pack for most. It's his pocket presence and that's not just you know -- keeps us -- to look at stuff with what he does -- you what's the rush without. Without sort of we -- his progression. He keeps his size of fuel use and distracted by what's -- room. What's more so far less distracted less less than usual it and he keeps his eyes on the fuel and a lot of times you see him throat would suffer through progression that seems -- -- -- -- -- since thing but that's usually -- things sound like you -- we are caused by former NFL quarterback -- we have. Half and satellite and that makes that hasn't practiced. I think it's important -- -- -- you know this isn't -- pass and -- competition governor it's not forgot the provable or it's I think what's impressive about it. As these big strong you can make Wilson throws and didn't work. Works well within the pocket it's a -- of the one thing that we need to noticed I think fans walked out this today. There was there was one -- who threw downfield last week it's Jack's built from the truth to that. One that was called back from a penalty of -- the one that the Dodgers this time these children have been reports of household so. -- made -- wonder -- my column this week I think as much as any player maybe the Flacco that we saw over this year. Reflective of -- ultimately we don't know god what he's gonna give them as many opportunities in global issue that provable went out. Again it doesn't matter what kind of put into the -- years from now because we with a team that's very comfortable dependent it's going to be a lot of opportunities. You compared since that we heard time and again this week on fox marine who look first of all the team you today defeat quarterback. He can run he can keep plays alive with his feet. He can do some things outside the pocket and then the other -- it probably runs better than he gets credit exactly you know there's a couple I don't physical exactly he's a far better physical presence out there -- -- a lot of people realize -- one has been Roethlisberger there's some comparisons there Roethlisberger -- -- -- it's the -- kind of systems become offensive system that the way to Pittsburgh for the music theory for the Pittsburgh for a long long -- it and doing some similar things with. We've good luck that he didn't Roethlisberger against broad brush but it again those are two need to keep up an awful lot done fought for the people who look at for compares. What's interesting is that if you look at sort of those systems you wolf there was always if he knew where there was always there's always an -- work. Were running game outlet. He probably doesn't have going back to revolve the -- in the casket to tighten this down of the -- I think you know another young guy that's a rookie that's been pretty -- which one -- catches for them but it's interesting because that's sort of system is reliant on. Deep threat one what one option to the took that to one catch guys you know. When after the kept coming out and -- an outlet to go with the ball if we don't have the running game pass catcher. And they -- we don't have a tight and that's the kind of discussion with the injuries. So he's sort of handicap about it nor shall we -- similar -- -- -- -- -- -- we talked about week after week you kind of look for the times were with some situations where it's based on this particular report had this. With Russell Wilson it was a terrific shots in the crossed midfield whom touched on the billions of -- a group -- -- I think within a block I think he. He breaks the pocket with some of the move the pocket -- play action stuff. More so when they reach. When they've reached the higher rated -- and do some more deadly and definitely we -- -- it's less of the break the pocket and wanna make plays until we get that red zone they have a lot of conclusions were to hit a hybrid because he's the pocket scrambled for. Not a great big plays 67 yards for critical this isn't you know it's not victims not to run for thirty. What -- critical situations we'll we'll have to supply warehouse -- -- because. He has hired tendency brick apartment once the -- -- -- -- report. We talked earlier in the day about Reggie went and in the past. You know this is a cliche for -- reason Bill Belichick he usually take one thing away from. And if I look at the Indianapolis Colts I think it's Reggie White. The -- he leads the NFL in receptions with 69. He leads the NFL in targets with a 112. Second the NFL in receiving yardage with 9312. In the NFL in receiving yards per game a 103 point four. I don't think you're gonna ask that -- -- to take Reggie -- away so what he did. The seems counter intuitive but as much as if this is actions and idiotic but I think it -- exit -- for this. There's -- little yellow -- notified and equipment delays that out of I'm really hopefully you know political players look at the but it's the most important thing to stop the -- -- run so ridiculous right and that's obviously hoping that the most competent. What if there are any cracks there in the play action becomes an issue. And I think there can be no play action that is true but simply don't respect that aspect because -- -- that we. It you can just see who will be focused on maybe they'll leave the workforce in an outing Reggie Wayne. The issue because homes if the if there's a one game -- talking to a yard -- what a legitimate. First and four type -- you know the gonna get 45 yards for them -- now play action real. You're gonna give little by little linebackers and some of the separation of what would see -- originally some -- -- -- -- watches you know this is not. We've got to start Maurice Jones-Drew this is not just upward -- They do need to make sure that the or not cracks in the run game to play action is very real because that's the separation happens. And that's for some disputes in the matches in the old politics come up if there's no real play action to Google might buy it by mail -- -- -- spikes they're not. You know for the safety don't have a plausible for second and not able to -- about progression that's critical in the -- the colts in the run game is -- -- and north half we kind of guy the fact that make that perfectly. Illegitimate. And it makes all the -- coverage -- ironically it. Maybe the few problems the patriots had with the run game a week ago. If they leads me to believe they're going to be better today and that initiative because they write about -- -- that's really what caused a lot of due primarily a lot of winnable match up to their front seven this week about yes there is no doubt especially I -- but the one of the matchup that I looked at. Earlier this week was Sheila Jones gives the -- It again we talked about electability the right tackle that Dallas has now left tackle for a young. They don't it's it's not it's it's a good decisions Adobe chief for them -- it's it's tough to do with them and we talked about luck. He -- to keep plays alive with his feet but. It again is a different kind of quarterback but that's a Wimbledon to for the patriots a lot of would have -- that took the net front seven for -- we -- this week who went up against the. There you can say tournaments are no -- office. You know submissions here I think -- -- -- to be looked at some of the cracks and -- last week which. Was with the three game at running diplomacy has Ballard kid. Donald Brown bits of -- mix of backs recently. Will be back what these are not bound to cut back guys you can -- this case that we're taking them -- -- turn. We'll go all the way back to back we'll -- about five yards back. Big game James one and one man -- deserve what they do straight line killed you look at your. Through my duration for the country I think the precedent that would normally that's important. The other thing to note is because they have the tightening down. They're gonna have to sort of find that secondary option in the past game Donnie Avery then they're for weeks with them disappear for weeks -- -- efficiency -- -- -- that. But that the things that the that the dual rate over the patriots and I don't think that -- to build this will be offered to wind is not a -- -- this isn't a group of guys. And that's what to do that if she would pay you to tell how confident they are treated as athletic as workable space. Sometimes it's a situation where you can look at last two groups ahead they beat us up to mistreat him. My guys the scandal. You're walking Williams pre game space you were maybe not as though they've really have a lot of luck in the passing game with their backs we don't use our. Our -- -- not -- passed it back so although doable deal last week and say hey here's how they didn't hear the game plan for us. -- -- -- -- -- you -- your left with we just won't do well we're we try to replicate that will be downgraded to see him trying. At the B I think of trying to because if you right. The screen game with two successful. It was too successful in the meaning immediate difference between that buffalo than you and we fifteen -- it was too successful against the preakness before and so. I can't -- say that they're not going to try and Lisa cope with -- for his game to see speaking -- have few very few be pleased to see exactly. Big day and you know like I notice the cut -- in. This. The Patriots defense the product -- received the same thing they -- a couple of weeks ago on last week in the same formation. Have you adjusted to head you know you may -- correct exactly have you -- accurate to a fifth.
