Your baseball landscape today. Josh Hamilton signed a five year 125. Million dollar deal with the Los Angeles angels and I'm. And the Boston Red Sox -- Ryan Dempster two year deal. 26 point five million dollars I'll tell you this -- it's fascinating to me. I brought this up couple weeks ago. All of this nickel and dime stuff getting the Napoli the world Victorino is in the world and make a big splash. And get a guy that's going to at least entertain the people of the next few years that's just him opening you'll. Actually went along without the -- is about five years you're. You wanted to run try to squeeze it down the -- we use the same thing they're not go for Josh apartment and the next one had been lit up. And it was to show patience. And you hit it people were bull statements blasting us for bringing up. For that Josh Hamilton should come to the Boston Red Sox that you get a guy who you legitimate. Time editor who's a very good -- well. Today. He gets for 125. Million bucks for five years for -- -- -- -- ever after the Red Sox in this text light is lit up -- you know liberals. Problem is that the Red Sox. They've gone totally opposite direction now -- this is a whole -- list of of people texting today and the people who. Didn't want Hamilton a couple weeks ago. Have gone to bed or did give up -- the dollar or waiting for that you know -- the first game of -- buyers are. I think it's bizarre if you don't. Usually see that dramatic of a swing. Well all that but. Isn't easy to say. And it's easy for everybody to say that way you don't really have to do if you're sitting here at August. October other teams are playing baseball season is over you got a ton of money. You're you're looking forward. -- So thankful. Where we don't have to feel the pressure. Of those outrageous bad contracts that we had last year and this time we're going to be different look at it differently now. You can sign people to. Be disciplined and -- the -- -- developer kids it all sounds -- -- -- when -- management. It is easy to say when Europeans it rankled fans got to let. What to look that's right we have -- evidence about how will do it and we're gonna get back to the way we were to Vista right way. That would free agency starts UC people. Going other places look at the angels now messy and they -- salon dot -- present the best team in the American -- Are they certainly. Are in the conversation on paper. They're -- in that conversation after awhile I guess you have one guy. If you have one guy out Apple's. Its export one -- Albert Wilson Mike Trout takes one couple guys sitting in the playoffs but drought coupled that you. He had Josh Hamilton. You've got three legitimate MVP candidate two guys have won MVP. Another guy -- to keep -- at all want it running away. This year. After -- it becomes really tough to say -- doesn't make it made some. Dangers that it really the the angels who did not win you handled it great hitters in the game today in pools. And then shying away from going -- and -- it. Market. If it is that they're not a market is this important market they have they have an agenda and I don't hear it to a -- They're building an exciting team. The urgent. Taking over. -- They think they have -- they have a second little battle going on it. Outside the American League west they got that little battle answered you know what it is race if -- in America at its TV dollars. It's TV don't get 200 dodged two ED. Millions from the local fox. Out of -- your phone calls your reaction we're also talking about apps as well. And -- what you expect from him on Sunday night to me he's got a plate big. For the 49ers to -- I know I agree with you about the defense of their treatment quick. Active they they messed up a lot of quarterbacks I'm not sure the government's this guy up number twelve. I think they might just a couple times sacked a couple I don't think you're going to get him. Often it's normal focused he's ever played their electorate. Which gives even you know that's that's gonna give -- always going to be. And then that story -- -- on everything organized to pick having had a season tickets needed. So it matters it's gonna add a this game comes down -- Can't he handle the pressure. And play under a game like he has never played it before what. It. Comes to. That's that's what I think this game comes down to listen I know Brady's gonna play terrific game. -- that's efforts Cisco defense is gonna be pretty damn good. I don't think patriots could easily be able to score 3540. To 52 points like they have over the last few weeks but 24 might be enough. 47 might be enough unless -- -- goes out and -- himself. Eight huge game I mean there's no excuse me the party's right here but he. It's right out yet but it's not that bodies right here go to the -- sometimes like their long line had its own right there. C'mon you've been working provides comfort there. They held -- when you realized that I don't realize gotta gotta gotta go to -- yeah -- probably yeah message fill up. A gentleman I think we constituency. You are. On the red we're back to sixty brother -- wrong with it a new market for money than not you'll see him. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- In that they'll figure out mystery behind. Me quickly to with Josh team in the stipulations -- is alcohol problems whatever. I'm really angels probably have some -- segments -- -- do. But it -- simply don't want Phillips and what do I want what I -- -- -- -- the crop they can't go get it all that we also. Without that money can't answer those states and you know not a one and it gets it that while -- -- it seems to pop that we -- to make the playoff. This I don't want his -- peace. The gulf the other -- I'm -- to communism collapsed site is we have made the playoffs won't betray -- Sweeney. We're at a local credit -- -- these guys I got a question you know apple all along the upper management we -- -- it to. They all he needs to tell me equally competitive yet. -- question is how important. It is not there or not and money. It. It's -- -- Michael it's getting. But it can you tell me honestly like that wound all got it shortstop that are in trouble so put the U. It the numbers here. It. -- dollars. Dollars to. -- This -- this. There are -- are about it -- don't read whatever it as I was saying before ahead of the technical difficulty here. So that worked so basically they've. They've spent about a hundred well. A 112150. Million dollars so far. An inquiry agency I know it's not that they're not spending. After that it's. I have. Opinions about -- equitable. Plays -- wanna see him. It's elation is like that it lobbying by only -- people to charges it was a dodge stratus. But the -- of. I mean I'd worked on several outlets outlets that it was the people they're just recently amateur in the money -- in 2000. Right it's incredible. I it's I think it's going to be fascinating to see how that plays out I if things remain that way they are right now I would not be surprised at all. If that sellout streak is broken in in date of after the they opener and that's what -- Buick that was the Lipton it was last year I should've happened last year. I don't care about the industry if so everybody gets worse they felt it yet it worked out sellout streak. I don't. Rob Bradford is now reporting that the Red Sox. Wouldn't go over the three years. Or -- source regarding. Him over three years of waiting offer toward a simple correctly -- think that's what gets me right now. And in the -- -- going along with it like the Red Sox really it. I can't help -- people on the ocean they do not make a concerted effort to go after Josh Hamilton. You. Made it one. Well maybe the statement but it works with the public is now there are some people up hills where roads. And they didn't try. Because to try means you've got to approach market value you went and buy a house it's worth. 500000. Dollars -- market off of the 200000 dollars for the house almost daily. All we tried but we just simply good. You would not willing to go to market value. Exactly -- of like if you like Jackson airport yesterday but that BMW. 600. Jackets lost their mind. This thing just security is lost what we have -- and I love what we have budget I want ocean. It is all it does is get around yeah. The best of -- -- -- excitement and business people must go crazy bounces from place -- Hangs around and finds you know. I talk to the cafeteria yesterday. It captain. -- no -- making the -- But that this idea Europe. Three years all the way you would have gotten is that the winter meetings with people were talking three years you decide which apparently they did -- -- While beating them. And that's when you say it we love. We want to that's the guy wants he wants to hear -- -- -- -- we once. But you don't want we don't wanna get to the pitching war back and forth all these other teams you know these teams at this respect that you just up for years. The Boston red -- we have a winning tradition. We're done over the last ten years and our organization with a great organization with a lot of money and go get a lot of butler's where they want. Five years 105. You work up to 150 to -- but you don't -- in this room right now. We leave this room that we're not gonna let played a game where you go right back today that don't Rangers. Aren't right now losers and use us. As some type of leveraged -- Regal obvious Josh and you don't want -- difficult. We counseling we help people work which will help to every you need to do to make your life. Very comfortable and lost it. It. Didn't go -- ago.
