It does as your health right now physically are you feeling you were -- where you're -- the process. Opened with a I. I. The -- in the early years. Did you let that one but the ball but it was -- -- won't isn't out. Just certain days. Certain elements that he -- -- the wouldn't do it the day it was fine mark what do you do running. -- murder in we. -- -- And that severity of a sudden. Lamar runs so and so. It's on the it was a good. Where were -- where the -- -- your day there aren't are not about who would go over. The you know about -- didn't -- all of -- government who have supported this sort of burden birdies are being blown and not all of them. Or. In the regular -- are the four months. Old but then there is considerable competitive. -- you -- you do that shockwave treatments would Boutros gonna put -- action pro. A few weeks do you think that did a lot of good Fauria were you happy did that. I think sort of order in. Outskirts. Not a ball. Who doesn't use. -- -- More or didn't -- when he -- -- you don't well as it is. And the the longer -- put it and wouldn't let it cool. So. So -- You look forward lovely but couldn't do it. There the one of the things happen and few weeks ago is due buddy Torii Hunter signing with -- Detroit hum. First off did have you talked to him about that decision at all and I guess the second question is. Does it worry you at all about free agents coming here. Are coming off the year in you know to do it sounded like Torre really wanted to go to a place where. He he thought he was gonna win right away do you have any concerns about that. Well and from there -- Where are eaten bone -- go to. He put Gordon wanna find articles and symbol. Or -- what you do and I don't have that. Government -- the world. Who. Can't -- it didn't ball in the water -- it was a moment from embarked. So once. I got an error -- -- hold. It there. Orton is lower. Or bigger locker room when they are -- there -- about. Who I would. Did they know would you like to this team do this winners are what Isner a guy to up there on the free agent market the you have your you know what what do you think this team. Really needs to take the next step next year. Wore them down on. Yeah long my little. -- Pia was the better. I will not and I did a little bit and I took. Not a or one. That wouldn't sub -- on the I'm -- you know and and -- that they're not -- Are there one. And I didn't -- -- -- -- it was recuperation. He -- -- -- them -- about coming up. And a lot of decision that we made. We're not serve. The rim and so we. Dick welcome -- in. They do current to a couldn't see it before. In my upper bewilderment -- -- that they. We didn't film's home a power either so -- to England well. Never heard that and it. In. Articulate -- car. And some some some. Well or -- in the world that. And I think. -- was going to be. Who murdered in from the. I don't come back to a David need to get a chance to answer it but are you concerned at all a bow. Free agents health free agent's view the Red Sox because the whole time you've been here the Red Sox have been a pretty desirable place to play. But it. Forward. With a little bit afraid the first couple of years probably. But. Wouldn't go on -- it and he's. And yeah ultimately didn't you leave the united B well I think if you. I'm looking for or whatever -- regardless. Would you -- one of these about it. There's a lot of record of which -- so what what what they want it because of the confidence will be no person nonsense. -- Just look at her little bounces. Up in -- Boris. And come that. This is that's what we've heard. They rule that was minimum should compliment. Very. And the color blue Boston went up again -- But I couldn't -- and it was days now -- that is true or are. It's the same -- proceeded. David Ortiz joins us on the hot stove showed David Ortiz celebrity golf classic takes place December 6 in the ninth at century grand resorts at cap cannon out. David charities for that is what what is the. Well. There's not -- formal. Quote on them and -- -- -- -- mind the year it's sort of on. Would lose. One or. Parker could hear them. None of water coming -- and now we move them. You know regular every year -- -- -- so that was the Mike Lowell and some promote or somewhere in. -- Gonzaga. In -- as well. It does promote heavily in cold. -- on the -- not a great. -- -- Well yeah I'm I'm choosing to make things happen this and David actually inactive that rob character golf course right that that they'll never be the same again. I think in my eight. What you do -- that would get them back in. The -- I just lived up and blow the only way you can whether god here. Yeah probably like. Compensated admirably I don't know that it comes around that convertible -- -- any of the stands down. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Let let let -- -- -- if it's good tennis there are I -- up for easy result. And go to a. Davis shifting back and -- their Red Sox management that manager John Ferrell I guess I would ask. What does John fell bring to this team that Bobby Valentine couldn't last. -- -- He's a manager we. Our old form. He he -- leader. When we were -- would or -- well. So I don't in -- at -- on what we moved to do to get into Barack -- so. He's gotten -- Wouldn't go down there. That's unbelievable. What department it was. I think there are up on. My own somewhere yeah yeah I mean it's. We are. You have beaten. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm not look so. Good with Derek but what it wouldn't be. Form the -- and that's about things as. Our conference. Some. Of all the rest of Ramallah. Form. -- purple bird so -- was. Doesn't know the other -- solution. Not. A fluke and -- -- and I said as those those I have no problem. -- thing is there's a lot of good things happening. And I think that in the long -- and ugly. Side of the series. Obviously with Valentine you spoke about the college -- there and -- NBC shows that you've you know basic gave up on the season you had any contact with Valentine since that. I'm really. You know I am on the I'll -- it was my time as opposed to a well. And as much time and there. And incurable and over the long run Columbia. -- -- Who Bobby is you're out of whether. Four and while Bledsoe on -- look calm now are a loose. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now. That goes on as you -- -- -- there -- twelve it was. In all Hartford to my mom and so on number super bounce and it. I'm human -- -- little amount. I hurt my and on -- -- club with its own. But. -- -- -- And I think a lot of that is what I do. I'm not -- to -- -- and now. Our -- one of the older brother. Although there are certain wrongly. -- there's little. Lover or lose I don't have a lot of -- the wrong. With no movement was not an -- -- -- One turnover. Margin. There's no local groups one -- old. Volvo a lot of confidence is most. Old. While posting them you know come around I think -- closer. Is -- -- marvelous for. Political. On song blown. But like a little note -- Kuerten. And de Lima. David this go back to the couple days right before. Tom you agreed to the contract. Did you think that there was a chance that you gonna hit the open market and that that you actually might end up not a member of the Red Sox. Not really. -- think. Written. A personal. Confirmed that he didn't Gordon. Born. Kilometer Navarro is now are important. I'm a curtain. In the lineup not on the -- -- the surgeon general. Or. Basically earlier couples -- these so. The most -- of the ball well what -- One day it's who did -- gone out for months the world about the course of the. David -- to -- talked to a Cody Ross this offseason and so after playing with him pretty area how important thing to -- this -- possible this lineup to have a guy like that that back with the team. Well I think I think Cody insert -- -- -- who. Who are home. -- you -- not. Only in the proper time. The rules -- to the emblem so yeah there's there's yeah. He's a great human. Well horrible it's great glued to it wouldn't work here and and -- the corner. For the record some. Of that. Well in order are common. Everyday certainly -- -- But without several birds are like what are the brother Kyle roper is an important. -- Over what. Beaten them a note on converts on a good number. Well Lou learned well there is the brother. The -- of the -- that broke about. The medicine and other want to know. -- I worked at Kirkland but also there and what it is but did you -- -- David most important question of the day. Who who's in my foursome.
