John and Gerry are back for the New Year and Dino's got a bold prediction for the Red Sox. He's counting on big seasons from Ellsbury and Pedroia, but Callahan doesn't think it's going to happen.

Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Time off we recently had I spent half of its sleeping and half of it thinking about 2013. Some thoughts about the Celtics addict is going to be some sort of major explosion here with the Celtics -- -- panic any panic -- -- -- adding any panic dreaded Danny panic I think so I have no idea what to think about the National Hockey -- a wake me when this thing has over the -- that. As far as the Red Sox are concerned and it's easy to say look at all the money they're spending all the time money they're spending. A mediocre average in May -- in some cases below average players. But I'm here to tell you. I thought about the long and hard. I am not -- -- when the World Series or even the pennant. But I'm telling you this they're gonna make the playoffs and what we're gonna watch starting six weeks from today by the way pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers, Florida six weeks from today. You're going to see them pool a Baltimore or. I think I think Ferrell and it was funny because you went through this you know who else but the fine tooth comb. This manager -- that manager verses this guy who should replace Bobby Valentine. And what's in a clear more than anything else more than anybody else in the entire world. Barrels -- got to manage this baseball team because of lack of pitching prowess because of the lack the underperformance of the starting rotation. I'm here to tell you -- gonna happen generally. Adding Ellsbury and a contract year is going to have a very very good year and MVP type year out probably not I think David probably gonna slip a little bit. By the got to be more than made up for by will middle Brooks who I think is going to expand. His production. And Dustin Pedroia who needs to have a very good year so I think whatever you get slippage in David Ortiz it will be taking care of a mitigated. By. A middle Brooks and and and Pedroia. Now here's here's where I think the real improvements gonna come -- a come from here because the can't be any worse. Starting pitching. And I'm guaranteeing you that not because their bats like we just have historically seen in Boston that the bludgeoned the ball bludgeon teams in the submission that's not -- other gonna win games. Pitching is gonna do it and -- know that's laughable based on how bad. The starting pitching was last year and two or three months. I'm telling you right now I think adding buckle is going to be fine. I think Jon Lester certainly has to be shamed and and and and sick to his stomach about what he has become and I think -- was the key to fixing all this and now here's the part where you can laugh a deal. John Lackey is going to be your race. Ace off Lackey went to be a race he sure he will win more games than any other Red Sox starting pitcher this year picture while. Dog got a hold ya think besides sleeping and thinking you're doing something else no drugs Al SA LSU would do and that's all us. -- -- -- 69 and 93 Baltimore did out there right now 9072. My prediction was that he was beat going to be traded by may. No I think I think lack adequate good I just won't be in Macy's as a mennesses you know in ten years. A panel as he ever been innings. Nobody is that a claim to fame -- -- -- angels it's India owed to me closer to twelve years ago Tom and figure with by Nabil viable. Third fourth star I was the at the same thing in the owns expecting much from and you know he he doesn't care people hate him he's just gonna go pitch and -- -- Upton and you ago then he'll be. Passable but he's Huckabee an ace and SA MLS and there's no I am I disagree completely. I haven't seen one you're -- the guys who were here to promote Lester but Droid and I even compliment indeed -- didn't mention any addition they may I was. The net for the end I was saving that for the yet and it's not a matter it's it's it's not the whole is greater than the sum of the parts this is a change in culture we talked about changing the culture in San Diego or change in the NFL. I think more than anything else you were going to have a change in culture where you're no longer going to have a clubhouse full of each goal. Maniacal. Meet first what does this mean to -- kind of people. I understand that you need production on the field and you need production at the plate but the fact of the matter is I think you're going to see -- there's actually eight team. For the first time in two or three years now how many wins that translates into I'm not exactly sure but certainly more than last year I think you're going to -- A unified clubhouse -- adding Ferrell is gonna get the culture straightened out there they brought in the people that that will buy into that system and I think it's going to be. A breath of fresh share. Other than Beckett who is the problem. Lester got dragged I bought -- stuff here I -- -- -- they got dragged down by Beckett Lackey still here and there and that's -- other than Beckett who was the problem. Me back it's gone -- in August and Bobby. He wasn't here the year both know about the before but what but all you -- now because Bob he's -- these guys are gonna get along and NB yes but yes and they're gonna have the public -- distractions Will Ferrell provided Bobby Valentine many -- ID management best marching guy who's who's who of over 174. Games in the -- made it back and -- the club is going to be -- get well. Leader he'd drag those people down I don't think Lester is necessarily a bad guy having to -- went along the goal -- and certainly in that category. He's not here anymore Beckham's not here anymore a big if if in I know we said -- last year this time. If September of the year before didn't shame them into into playing better and trying harder and doing what they needed to do. To be as good as they can possibly be nothing well what -- hold another year of this crap. And I think testing their window closed I think they're seeing a bunch of things change and an aunt and their their legacy is starting to be forged and I think all the wanna change and I think they think Ferrell. Is that agent for -- but you're not talking tangible to distort and -- they wanna win and they want -- makeup -- coming or are they good enough facts quite good and I talked about to settle for just that Ellsbury is going to be a very good your contract your that is probably bull. Having having Pedroia and having Miller Brooks are going to be very very good and I think at him. I'm not sure what to expect out of them -- expecting anything on him but I think you're gonna get sums up one run. There's not one new guy that. Moon gives me -- incompetence the economic difference not one I mean -- could girl two guys comic thirteen million year but the you know Napoli coming up -- you make a difference smalls united Minneapolis. Like an upgrade over Adrian Gonzales. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Steven Andrews defense -- we're grasping at straws elected at 74 they had finished fifth round if he finished fifth -- what they -- nothing makes you that on paper makes them look any better than day in the better than the other four teams -- Mean the other four teams. Look better on paper than this team that finished that it would Baltimore look like a year ago. They look like a last place on the net last place yet to clearly like not a -- -- yet you know there was -- -- in particular a strong bullpen which the Red Sox have they turned it around so there are those miracle and they -- they spend money on clothes which it that the party hat. And other government. Trading you know the close a closer to the previous -- -- Bailey who they got four a thirty homer guys that corner -- -- past mistakes also so -- going to be gone yes even though all the it was get hurt adrenalin no good battery and came back it was in effect does that help these days. Yeah I know I -- seems like a very cool guy and that's important no I don't know a lot. Cruel guys what it's all about I got a bunch of if you can shorten the game -- deal one Baltimore did a year ago right. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Get the job done he's gonna take my job to dollar plan mean we just think about our friends -- and invite you to join us on the FM side 93 point 74 and final hour Dennis and Callahan and it.
