He had text about Rosie O'Donnell I can't read on the year it's very funny. You said were assumed that on the -- really yes. I don't read it then I heard luck with the out of job -- -- egg that users -- I heard Rosie O'Donnell can -- her fart sound far. That's wonderful that's if that's true that's hot and yes I had -- I'd hit that that's that's my. That's mild in your wheel house to see a lot worse than that will help. Now. -- -- now in about that was more bill I thought it was Henry Kissinger. Good constitution is predict is predicated on state states' rights when Arab Christian but envoy to advocates have got to take it from hitting Minnesota please on this. Phillips in men -- how also how are you. The little comment and he had I don't know tolls to go to men did this -- -- we're not. I'm going to change involves focusing upon them on your teachers need it was all that the new Yankee Stadium yet Israel went and had no -- -- you know Bob Dylan. -- -- -- Little agitated so -- with the Red Sox. First -- to look at last year mocked a school girl what he did for the giants and then not. The truth charged rhetoric haven't dirty someone's home runs. We haven't made the playoffs -- a few years. Corresponds with the Yankees will regret the outlets such a take a shot him. I think maybe didn't make a splash. Something like Josh Hamilton brought. A contract will -- these four years 25 million. What stipulation action or this situation he's got an independent company and its. It's getting an education well. It is because of how how bad they were last year and how know there's been no real you know a gigantic addition to this ball club that makes electric -- on an odd to you yet you know. -- Elvis Andrus can they get all the Sanderson Texas he's been shopped around a little bit while they wanna deal Ellsbury again. But the gonna have to do something dumping money out. We have the eight pick in the collegiate draft is -- some could Barkley is open era you know the top eight players. Anything that you see certain. High school have a high schools. Well I'm an ecologist at eight pick the Red Sox. But. You know he was sorry -- down and -- -- Washington Nationals. Rookie of the year then that's one Strasburg and one in the -- wanna do you have something that we can hope for media. Catch what you're born with the eight pick could be a collegiate career after high school draft tomorrow. Well -- -- I can't come up -- it -- specific name I know people that they have in the mind is now. You know the ones that are going to be the foundation in two years if you know if they don't trade that. Like a guy like Jackie Bradley. You had to find another guy like that that'd be really -- keep -- no I can't say a name my and now. Yeah -- its. Baseball draft -- an inexact science but I thought that would that would -- pig and you should be getting a solid player you would hope. I would also. Stop the rumors urology and they might come -- Youkilis at first I heard Burton and I'm hearing names like yeah gotta be kidding me. I don't want any of those streets -- well yeah well they do if they and a desperate -- have a stopgap guy -- you know Lance Berkman for years -- as isn't waved away Beltre commute for a year and by the way that's the one guy really a problem -- god yes and then -- -- he and and Redick would have been you know just. You add those select add those two guys last year's Red Sox maybe they win 85 games. But the premise we know -- is the you know on the -- -- operations -- -- the -- how they make these children aren't making these deals with some of these players at. You albeit we do not think for a Sweeney and -- radical -- micro school we'd be key because only the cost which we mourn million dollars you know I mean. What do they do -- Now involved in an end to end this a way to win that they let scooter logo nobody said wal boy they -- -- franchise who probably go on -- -- this post season -- it was a relatively mediocre guy for the rest of mediocre and I got a better than a mile -- It was an average major -- anybody -- average mediocre average and I don't even if he could be an average plus you know he played pretty well again there was no outrage yeah well let. Besides raw Roma there haven't been a ton of moves and and I -- that the Red Sox and by no teams and there they usually. Eats starting really you know later this week and into next week the next few weeks -- well would you have given up don't trust him when he. Now it he I don't know that everybody's looking at him is like this weird twisted he could be you know he can be heaven or hell really from. When I'm seeing it take to -- -- put stipulations for contract Carolina team that becomes your ankle south regional now that you -- -- amnesty him. Yeah I mean if he's healthy. He's not gonna go south he's just saying he's going to be fine yeah he's a right. -- is still good if I took -- a player is that I heads in the right place and you know obviously there are concerns there will be language in the contract I'm sure Texas had a but it comes down now to Texas -- -- where African country is in not a day more. So bad opens up the door for anyone else with the Red Sox I mean that's is panel to veterans agent. Absolutely certain. That. They'll take nothing less you know I think five to seven years you know what I definitely going to be waiting a long time you know I think -- -- Hamilton the same thing that would Prince Fielder last year. It drags. On and on and on and then all of a sudden some team like the -- somewhat. Bites and it's this huge for five years I have got about Hamilton is that he and an. People been barred now by having these late contracts even when pujols got his big effect contractor what he'd do would -- angels -- he came out of the box stink involved you know. And it the thing about him that is what 32 right is going to be 32 win season so yeah if you gave him a six year you're gonna be paid him at 28 plus million dollars a year now it's at least 38 at Mellon and I don't think anyone wants gonna -- Michael and Plymouth go right ahead Michael your next. Good evening and happy Thanksgiving and Jimmy. First of all of the -- just not all. Of the state law regulation or practice. Constitutes an impermissible. Burden upon interstate commerce could well be unconstitutional. Bobbitt who had to pay they're paying it now. So what they're really doing an effective they cut the told rates on a Mass Pike for Massachusetts residents. Is they're giving them a discount they're not in they're not changing or are you know or making it more difficult for interstate commerce right. Well the fact that dependent. Inquiry that the court would -- a lot -- small dot. Can -- and -- I think extra segment. Check as the shot trap all situational football right -- Okay sorry. This -- Scott. Not capable of improvising. On -- I beat. -- -- -- writing but all of our actual Pedro where there's only 53 players that they can sort -- that. As you can -- -- I despite what they're published in Wayne week. And -- check out a wedding crop in the I'm ATP. What offers I don't think -- a defense required for doing what you've done every single game of every single year that you -- coach and that is to keep one unit as your point after touchdown unit. I of these -- lame about batterer or there's anything that needs to be defended you know. If that's what he's been doing and that's that's what he does then that's what it is it's not like we did something different this time and it cost you -- your best. Players. You know I don't I don't get this whole thing about the point after -- and again that they can you name one time Michael. Michael. Can you name name me one time a player got hurt on a point after. Some. Local talk about what -- example. And then you might be just as many times a guy got hurt walking in the locker shot. And probably preventable. I mean I think it potential -- -- prodigious Saluki. But -- in other circumstances. What. Because that's what he does on point after touchdown that's his job et -- tell you why I like that he's absolutely sure law absolutely sure that he won't get her -- guess what -- -- what one time. Big dale made the I mean you can't I mean obviously. You couldn't -- I think the argument will be better if he got her and actually play that occur on -- late in the game what it was not a brand. But not not in an -- there's not a self -- you're you're talking about like this is some kind of tearing down Belichick's -- as a coach over time. -- he doesn't have one imagination foresight is that what you're saying. What I'm saying -- you why you're here in the sense that brought it up. That the don't want to do and that's how they Turkey's -- to come across -- era. But let's not just him every single coach in the NFL -- said it best earlier if you take him out on that one play for whatever stupid reason you think is appropriate to take him out of something he does every single play. All year ever since he's been here. That you say will. On that one play. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you know. I it wouldn't have been in Poland because let's go away you know this bill would like I -- -- to -- back to -- Biden guy fell right -- through with a you know close a close game that's insane and that's why you know by eight. By a creature of habit that's -- Biotech does he puts out the -- -- line of scrimmage Eagles -- if there was any history of guys getting hurt on that particular where you'd say okay maybe he should have done that but there's no history. I mean if if feel if Belichick had known that. Last week Tony Gonzales right you know you know broken ankle on you know extra point blocked. For the falcons we'll let you know what ballots as you know I might. But there is no history that well. The other party is so many players have already stated that. They they just don't have enough time of the week to practice that have different specialties there's so much other than many other things to do that they do that before the season starts up.
