Listen up. Text the word garage. -- -- Joey gets open and said. He hammers that thing and garage listen I say the word look different -- people do you pronounce it how. Garage and I get -- the -- crime -- all different types of butterflies. I forget and say they're on the pronunciation. -- Somebody's gonna win a very good care from the pokes at shamrock part of the perks here today and it got all the bank for their buck. Well my missed pronunciation -- -- my own take on the word itself. 6177797937. The baseball market it's out of whack and that could be. I think evidenced by one year twelve million bucks for Kevin Youkilis and all round here. That it becomes a big deal because Youkilis played a Red Sox uniform now he's a Yankee and all boy how people gonna respond which -- mile bleaching in New York for me. But twelve million bucks for a one year deal for Kevin Youkilis got it to 38. With two different teams last year. Baseball markets -- if you can get wobbly right. It's ever been in. Free agency running the argument never right and it. But well actually I'll tell -- -- revenue last year it was actually in -- because. And -- -- -- field it was a look at the guys the Red Sox were interested in in Kuroda one year deal -- Jackson one year deal. And that there was some of those the guys that -- -- -- ethic Ritz -- the account on the markets were collapsing on the but it's always like this. I Youkilis. A one year twelve million dollars. And the question is you know. Again what is Kevin Youkilis is is agent in -- catching up to him. It's been it trend the last really the last three years 2010 and greet you with Boston the only play 102 games though. You know last year and 2011120. Games to 58 thirds of the dip on -- still high and last year was worst years where. Operate under point two games and a lot of that injured threats oxen and notebook to playing over and at times. 235336. On base. Or Steve's career got one year while the a lot of that go on writers -- The worst year of your career you make all the thirteen million dollars. Interest. -- also give Youkilis credit forget that -- money is part of it but it put that aside for a second to decide. -- two options here the pressure cooker that is New York. For a much more relaxed atmosphere go play for Terry Francona for a couple of years a -- -- -- can be less money but a two year guarantee with the Cleveland Indians. Mean he's got to know choosing New York's covering a lot more pressure with the always again be the soap opera what is out every gets comeback doesn't play well. Defense attorney quick. You don't play well on that market -- -- credit in that sense of he's gonna be much more in the fire with that Yankee team. And it if Iran doesn't come back he's gonna play a lot of baseball this year for team that thinks they're gonna get an every single year. I guess I assumed in my mind evil of one year wildly box it up with Terry Francona Cleveland to be an extra year and be a player would play with a guy. That is he said it is. Charity event last week that's the one guy played for all now -- most of my career. About time for little bits on -- -- -- all noses Terry Francona looks that he had that option to go back there he chose New York one. Maybe they ain't they didn't choose him. You know I mean they end up signing Mark Reynolds. -- -- one years six million dollar deal now we can and we know Mark Reynolds likes to strike out an awful lot. But -- still the power still there. -- point three home runs last year but he's not the player when he's at. Cleveland but when you're six million dollars maybe they chose that route. They're put on -- first base -- up -- a for the Orioles. Residency at the market for -- Kevin was gonna be when you're twelve that's twice as much. It's not the Red Sox right now citizen of all the minor burn as the guy we want given six million dollars over the whatever is out there. It wasn't a position interesting spot for him this year adding Red Sox fans will do what they always do dug him a nice big. Here when he comes in and Yankee uniform for the first time -- every bad after that. Won't be quite as friendly as they were a White Sox uniform works here like every night that three game series was Kevin Youkilis appreciation night. I think for handle at that one big. Bank for a spot in the -- give public every of the Yankee player does after -- not so sure about that. I'm not and I know this is this will be interesting I think because. He's he's a member of the New York Yankees we saw it treated Johnny Damon you didn't choose the Yankees in free agency. Treated and he was traded because if a woman approached the better option moving forward. So he's now a free agent. The Indians choose to go elsewhere he's looking at there and a one year deal with the yankees'. One year. You know -- wanna be a bench player. And do I get a deal next to a my deal look like next year probably bench play another team is the best fit Alex Rodriguez is out. There's no timetable first year for six months and he attend the twelfth. -- missed the entire year who knows. -- goes to the Yankee Stadium. Justin you know have one good -- a team. That -- knows the score some runs. In the getting older does injury concerns but if you put yourself back in a market to you do the following year. He didn't have many options as the poignant in united it was a threats are -- deal was was in the Red Sox yankees ballot for joint game services. This was given -- close out there are talks were adjusted to sound the Yankees but do you think Red Sox fan who pays the 5067. Bucks to get -- building. Is gonna take the kinda think what you just thought about that whole process yes. I see I don't. I -- natural reaction to see a guy you knew and a Yankee uniform and absolutely go after him that that after that first initial round of applause he'll get it. A city extend Damon back is Damon got destroyed. But just like any other Yankee Red -- primary. How it gets treated New York that'll be interest again if he goes south quickly as a 238 type year. Yankee fans got a real real short memory here you know we like -- right now are talking about a little -- yesterday in New York on New York radio. But he gets up to a bad start. There's nights are pretty quick disposal for four in the first game all Red Sox that makes an error lose the game went to the response gonna be there he's the abetted at socket that. It's like we set -- a -- that Youkilis is throwing games EC. The Texans played on Monday night and you -- that played out in a Yankee uniform that I get it just read this three. Corsican in Colorado just tweeted me who's that little Maloney is that we okay. As Taylor Maloney Felix to brown reminds -- be young sandy Colfax I would think. I was referring to Ellsbury Mickey Mantle. Comparison look at which led me to pull -- mantle's numbers are laughter in the -- about that compares to about its Red Sox fans that they'll. Kevin's in the car driving around I kept. Or are you guys -- -- -- nobody wanted and I'm glad I'm concerned about. Some of the most Sox have done them wander and not particularly about why Shaun Marcum. -- get no attention at all on the create a market because the guys that can't talk to impact on this and you know. People get caught up. With Lester and the tickets really emotional response within because he came up as a young kids -- for the cancer at all there's always around one point four that's not. That's not. Stocks are what -- won't stop but it's not number one and two material was Marcum. Absolutely. Look what this country only about one point 11 point two it's everywhere you know at the -- point forced age. And what do an excellent article about you guys thought -- You don't think a couple of home when you look at a guy -- -- -- -- the last three years there was a great comparison of him. Where it intricacies of numbers is the price over the last three years. Well listen. Jon Lester before this year. There's been a better pitcher I think that Shaun Marcum now I I always look Shaun Marcum when he's in Toronto -- a great signing for the for the brewers -- but the Tommy John thing. That has to concern you Kevin because he had Tommy John -- on nine -- missed seven he won games this year because of elbow because of his elbow. Well EEB pitched the -- market type numbers and he's always mid threes aren't as the last four years. -- three usual movement Tommy John any misses some time became Beckett pitched OK for them but there has to be some kind of concern there. Well that's something they can look at all. That's something you can look at what the medical records god knows they've -- they've got except of record on everyone not playing and I didn't get you know that better than me. It just as medical staff can. It's that you trust the medical staff right now rhetorical question what are they did it there in shambles and it trying to hopefully get this thing better. Accidents to with the -- Napoli physical efforts in Markham and I had to look it up it was 2005 in unbelievable year for the New Hampshire mr. Katz was 71. Under three ERA in that was so when he jumped on the radar for a lot of people around baseball. When he won seven games with them and not a whole lot of innings but privacy question Lou does right. How much you wanna invest in a guy about Tommy John surgery in 07 missed an entire. Two years don't just go here's a time when John doesn't concern me is guys you bounced back. It's missing it's two months 71 games last year. Because available issues. And that concerns me when -- three years removed in the -- popping back up again you know there's there's some concerns there. 6177797937. Your phone number I'll continue with your -- Tom. I's gonna join its one point talks patriots and 49 we come back. TJ cyber harassing more sports people in LA keep it here.
