Sauce gets some hilarious reactions to questions about Boston sports ... during the blizzard from random people on the street. Then he gives us his feelings on the direction the C's are going.
Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Luvollo joins the program to talk about Red Sox injuries and the MLB Replay process
Our number two Chris aligning with sports Sunday Sports Radio WEEI 6177797937. Then not all Red Sox some pretty much all Jon Lester threw the first hour lie detectors weighing in on the AT&T tax line on that will get to that just a moment. Out final round of the masters is going on a maturity people. Into getting into what is much science tiger. And without Phil as well he Mickelson showed up I think late Thursday night she flew in and Friday after energy is flied out. With Phil Mickelson. I he had a tough weekend are tough early going Richardson first round in a local guy Keegan Bradley struggled missed But there are some big games of the top the leaderboard some exciting. I young names of the Jordan's BT's twenty years old he's cash to win the masters I he'd be the youngest winner since 1979. LEB younger. Then the tiger was the first time you want it. And one of the things that really stood out to me is speaking with some people were down there this week to cover the toward talks and these young guys and it get back to tiger. The complete and water. Lack of off. Around around Tiger Woods to these guys are too young you think about twenty years old 21 years old with somebody like camera some would like walker. In somebody like Blix the Swedish guys and second right now and he's. He's like 28. You know some of these guys too young to really remember or at least have played with tiger against tiger. When he was hitting level like we never seen before the PGA tour earlier received since Jack. And they look at him now a Zagat shoot 77 on the weekends. Is that cats really contention anymore where is I mean Aaron I'm not old and your and all of you remember when. Final round tigers in the lead it was done forget about it I mean one year in the PGA YE Yang those big shots out late and ended up beating and yet that epic battle with Bob May. I nearly beat him in the PGA but it would for the most part just wasn't close he would get a lead and he was one of the best closers in the we'd seen in the sport. But it's just it's different now that's a different vibe. Around Tiger Woods and it's gone from seemingly a foregone conclusion that he would get to nineteen majors is seemingly foregone conclusion that he won't eat next year. Does play majors this year. Is give forty years old Jack won three. After he needs five Jack won three after forty to two of those were when he was forty and the masters in 986. Was kind of an out Larry's 46 years old. Tiger would be a hall of fame career from here on out five major championship all career to get in nineteen. I think it's interesting not only his fall from grace just as a player. In terms of winning majors the was in my opinion at least the best player on were last year he had five or six wins a torch to win major. But the bigger thing to me is just how some of these younger players perceive him do tiger as a contention it used to be regarded. The average stroke. The average round rather up a stroke in. In in the in the final round on Sundays when tiger was in contention real just kind of melted aged just. Folded around with a few exceptions mentioned Bob revealed in Nickels and it's good battles but. For the most part it was just tiger's world everybody else's playing for second they were on him Ernie Els just not Now is young guys just young enough to cocky enough and don't really remember that at least they didn't play through it. And they're saying how statute 75 on the weekends with what's not ID in the turn now but. I should be upon Sunday Bubba Watson very very likable guy. And I Jordan who were finding out a lot about trying to become the youngest masters winner a long time quick birds update we'll get back to the calls against 617779. 7937. Cordially NC DM IA's doing great to get the good news on him that was definitely a concern that you know DM IAA was. Out I got hit looked like in the that it from I thought it was illegal but not dirty if that makes sense I don't think there was intent to injure there. It was just one of those times you're trying to make a hockey play get the principal point contact up higher and you won it. So I thought it was an illegal hit not a dirty hit but by a help not the that you concussion translated to on the ice Thursday that part we don't know just yet. But Patrice Bergeron it sound like is fine I he missed the third period yesterday that would would have been a huge concern. I outside to go. There's not too many guys you point to and say this more important to the bees and Bergeron two way player in hockey this year. Obvious he's good according to coach Julianne and Chris Kelly looks like still day to day with that back injury so some. Relatively speaking. Minor bumps and Bruce is going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs but you know these guys especially Alec Bergeron if he could be on the ice on Thursday against the red he's going to be there. I HTT tech slide is 37937. It's like grab a few of these real quick a one Dexter says eight times over David Price let Lester walked. While you make Casey price a better pitcher at this stage of his career early younger I can cost more money. And now your bidding against everybody else you've got the cost control guy. Housing cost control we get the guided the under your control rather. The of the exclusive negotiating window with wants to stay here to guide it. As more in depth track record in the post season to sign him. And that point it's not a knock on price and gives great pitcher. But if you're looking at what you can do it even easier than that that will save you some money relative to what price can get on the open market signed last. I know detector can you imagine having Stanton in Boston did it forty plus homers easy architecture from western mass. Two words about prospects Daniel yep they can go hard the other way. I another one here says agree with you order percent top of the rotation guys talk about Lester innings a year post seasons died. Given the cash over five years five for one and should get it done. And out finally is Lester stats are comparable to average career he walked away from 244 million Lester has been better than Homer Bailey and look at the contract. That he just signed a few textures telling me the gets four clocked at. Well evening parade for a UConn for the championships I assume the men and women together out both of them winning the national title. Yes as tougher as Turkey's but happy for Kevin Ollie who now is the next. Hot coaching named to go from college to the end beauty after eight seasons. But undefeated in the NCAA tournament ally guys can say that are at six or 77797937. is in New Jersey he's up next When then. Just try to not cute bit Ali thank you and I can't believe that a low ball. Jon Lester like they don't agree that you like a side impact by one and whatever argument sake. We have been out of my. But you see a lot of contracts for your team that have gone got into the contract stratosphere and some of them have really worked out so well. But for a number like dapper Lester what he's so willing to stay. I agree I was surprised. When I saw what the number was at the end of spring training where the Red Sox know Lester broke off toxin seems like a a low ball contract terms of dollars in a low ball contract thirty years. definitely. god I G I mean lucky probably let out a little bit like that way radio reluctant I had. Yeah I mean yeah I'm with you thanks to the fall being a former yankees fans perspective. They're never shy about spending dollars. That Lester contract is makes sense and I've said this a few times. Because just getting back to this point I do think my gut still tells me they get a Don. Gut feeling they still get this contract done because I hate candidate it player just wants too much just wants to be a Boston too much. You back going to be here at the expense of taking deal it's foolish and a four year seventy to eighty million dollar contract before which. At ball way below market terms years below market terms the average annual There's no upside here it sounded like a Red Sox blown away with a give you four years but here's point six million a year. Which is probably more than you gonna get I guarantee each and every year on the open market that it could at least. I still think Lester would walk away from crystal he'd say no. But I could look at that is saying the Red Sox in good faith effort to try to. Do with last year what they've done with other guys which is over pay an average annual dollars but try to take that discounted terms of the number years seventy. I can't say that. I can't see it as they came under years came under dollars 6177797937. Bill isn't busted up next they've built. They would subject. who visual. You know what about. You guys keep in the world. Could together okay. guys they look at the guys renewed deal if everybody involved. Make him have the option to. Who boarded deals rivals ordered to the guys will. Make it work. So real simple. So three years of his make sure Israelis and three years seventy million. And then assuming he stays healthy another two years at how much. Ordered me at all. That would come out to volley at 5110. About then you know what would actions. YouTube. 120. It was cute guys so. Yeah It it it any guaranteed dollars sport. That that's just not gonna work for the players work for last. Well hope what works right now what made two big guy a two year deal seven million. With a guarantee. Appeared to remain nimble. The two more years of targeted what are enviable. Well let's get. That that that the five year 120 million dollar contract. Where. OK I guess that that's reasonable but I mean you if you're guaranteeing the money that it's not three years in the two years to five years. And yet we could what three years didn't work out three years it will be created numerous believe that you develop very animated. You know. Yeah I mean I like well. I guess I can't get what you in there you know again trial period so to speak at three year seventy million dollar. You know test blown the CP states LP and see if he still producing. The news saying guaranteed fifty million after that which is five for once money. Why would John again you'd think about it okay hometown discount know we heard the operator gets excited about it. to get past the idea of a hometown discount meeting complete insanity. Seventy million dollars even over a three years average dollars a lot of money. But it still. 50% of what can get out in the open market. You know why would I take seventy million guaranteed even for three years when I could just double that six years guaranteed at 140 million. You know six I can get that extra seventy million dollars over three more seasons just to go out in the open market. That would be a great team friendly kind of idea but Lester were being eyed Joseph and Wakefield once the way HL. What they've done so much for the in the you know 78 years. That burning up I don't know are already up at. I agree with UN and the injury concern for me is that they're now we are talking about Clay Buchholz we'd be having added I merely different conversation. But with Lester even a year it was bad in 2012. Still pitch to plus innings. Yeah I mean you don't get a picture wondering about that party and you don't hate you guys brought there get a going to be offered. And I are I think I really like the attitude that you just want the behavior I don't understand why the Internet situation black. We're not talking about giving the guy a 140. I'm not all that with the amount of money more book like the object audit. Well he had I think the Red Sox kind of Hewitt in the regard as well that's why I wasn't completely floored when he said OK if we here opera was the most that they had. I'll put out there by the time they broke off negotiations. But I'd be and neighbor of 400. Yell now and a and a big. Average annual value a Ford seventy for is an opera that you know the players get a that's an opera that it's designed to be turned out. Yeah independent though they looked like but based on the yacht I don't know it. All the the PR stunt getting negative PR because I think I had tickets ridiculous they have any Lester did lie to me if he blocks away at the end of the day. And and the Red Sox look back and in the end flick back and say. And they could of they could negotiate they could out of spring training but the only opera percent beat the teams the only one's gonna look bad that's an. Aerial my opinion darker integrated you know integrated I'm sorry you know it made it. It's the same age and it did Dustin Pedroia has I can't think of his name off my head to similar Pedroia as we negotiated down discounts the This situation it is thought here we cannot I mean update completely done park are now completely. It sounds like till the end of the season got to do have an exclusive negotiating window. Went thanks for the college and they've exclusive negotiating window with Lester. After the season is over and that it's free agency. But you know in my mind even if the Red Sox were come back with a big number in the fall. But it even gets to. Reagents even gets to the point were other teams are our ticketing contracts are offers a Lester you're probably spending more than what you have spent. It just get the deal done now. You just avoid any possibility any any chance did you rate in the another team another suitor and unlike David Ortiz we can't you know we had a debate about Ortiz is going to be even a market that is. And I thought maybe lot of people but absolutely now. That's fine with Lester there's no debate right. I mean when I can debate the fact that it thirty year old going on 31 year old lefty it's starting pitcher with a great post season track records that market. We know that that's the case there's going to be money thrown at this. So you have the opportunity. To not only negotiate exclusively with him up or you even touch or even Free agency. It to get an offer on the table to sign this guy if they're not able losing the player beat. I signing into a deal that maybe goes outside their comfort zone because now they worry about free agency not to worry about other offers them. You could have made a better fate in my mind decide than these reported figures in at these numbers are right you know he's not taking. It's an it's designed to be refused to keep brought out their deceit it's a hit proper. I don't think organ necessarily buy that I think that this mark baseball banner that. That they and as long as you're in line with keeping Lester some cables don't want that at any high price and that's fine that's your opinion I disagree by. It any band that wants Jon Lester back is valued at his team. It and understand just what the market is looking for the seventy's at It's an insult. Text messages committed 37937. AT&T like. Texas is Red Sox have too many pitches in the system they had the upper hand. Now that it's does its thing is too many pitchers in this is have a lot of starting pitching depth they have a lot of potential. As allowed by hope and is better than Jon Lester obese Kerr shot why not. But you know what you have in Jon Lester. You don't know what you have yet Henry and that goes to my point of if you're gonna have some of these cost control pre arbitration arbitration guys up. Lester got the money to do. He could have a a lot of money coming off the books over the next read of where years. Yet a pitcher John Lackey threw for 500000 dollars on next season. In NA and it not a salary cap sport but it sport I care about a 189 million dollar luxury tax threshold for the at least they're from last. I that to take three years the market's already at five to six. years as Lester won't get 140 on the open market I disagree I think he will. I the Texas is give Lester one of these two deals. Or for a hundred or seven and 12611. if the offer candidate for for a hundred then I would say you know the Sox made an effort. They made shots try to sign him and take battled down discounted terms of the year when it for par seventy it. and a few text is going back to a couple calls as a wide world Lester take three year deal and a trial period. We can get five years guaranteed and I completely agree this is an interesting text here get this one before the break. I you know I'm not entirely sure why everyone has the phrase 110 for five I should get it done because he had no idea. What will get it done in theory. Yet that would be a hometown discount. 111 for five years an option six and eight I have no way of knowing. Whether that would get it done so he's looking at 5110. I just keep coming back that number because I look at. What the market would probably and keep going back to guys like Cole Hamels you know reasonable comparable to last year's regular season numbers I see six. In 144. EC 23 and change per year so take roughly that average annual value. 43 in his case it's going to take a year back it five years old hometown discount. But he's not leaving and and the billions of dollars That's why I come back to that number I'll get it done I have no idea what I'd be willing to go to say. 150 over 520 million a year probably. Start pushing diablo or we'll talk. You see what the number but a number I have in mind. And a lot of people have in mind they think 22 million a year twenty to 22 million a year years and college day. Five years a 10210 million dollars 6177797937. The point though I had no idea we don't know. What gets I can tell you this though. Ward seven he doesn't get it on told you that before knowing. That that was the for the Jon Lester turned out we get back to your calls coming up next we'll talk war. A Red Sox get to the Bruins as well and what touch and the Celtics before the end of the show as well get to 4 o'clock Chris Blondie with Sports Radio. WE yeah.
Villani doesn't understand the Red Sox' approach to the negotiations with Jon Lester for an extension. Sure, you have to start somewhere, but their offer was so off base, it was almost insulting. He wonders if the Red Sox truly want Lester in the future and if they don't, WHY!?!
The Red Sox will have the proverbial log jam in the outfield when Shane Victorino returns - what should they do? Send Jackie Bradley back down, make a trade or something else...Butch and Buck discuss.
Transcript - will not be 100% accurate
It is a saucepan radio programming here on Sports Radio WEEI once again -- snowed in hang around triggered some Beers like. I'll be at 701 tonight that's when the show's over a drinking game but the CD's every time he -- sauce man taken nice that goal -- -- a little sip. A nice backed -- going to opera so your tweets here. From during the break. Act DJ underscore being -- real -- wouldn't have static X and rates for the open I was wrong. DJ your hilarious to nab -- on later on the show I think -- for the third time so he's used them at least today. And -- get another -- here that says sauce -- pairing up the Airways makes sure to tune in sauces. Artists are the best show in the history of radio. I don't know about that -- reading your tweets are going to be up at real sauce man. That's what -- if you wanna Texas 37937. And if you're awkward enough choose a phone call. 6177797937. And once again -- a phone calls or bit awkward -- We get a blizzard to dispel are on the book is on the ground here in Boston all over to England I guess the jackpot of the snow. Was Hamden Connecticut where they got over thirty inches of snow. That's a good large amount powder you're in Boston that we talked out a runner on 22 inches or just above that it will -- I know the city Portland Maine got thirty inches now with the highest snowfall total. Ever for the city of Portland and I think -- because that's the tool seven. And Bangor Maine myself although I do live in Boston Nelson award my teeth are blocked though and I don't Wear -- jeans and camel. Our shirts anymore although you know if like could I war. Sony restaurant last night during the absolute height of the blizzard I thought to be great idea to take gravel MP3 player. While -- governments that are first of all see if there was anyone out there. Second policy Betty -- who would talk to me. And -- false if they actually want to talk while sports opinions during the height of the blizzard and fortunately for me this it's this segment didn't really work out so well. No secret through the radio this one do -- get your favorite red talking all of these acquisitions are. You -- here. And iron to. So we have now want -- that was the first what I did fortunately I was the myself bigger of the scrap this. It's probably not going to be good idea but I pressed on there were many people around the City Hall plausibly here's the next one. 100 years on the radio on it and how you were able. Blizzard there -- That's perfect it's a blizzard broke. I know and sorry I you know I just I'm interested in seeing what people think about sports tell me if I'm wrong. Tell that from wrong here I don't care of the blizzard I don't care what's in nominee whatever is going on I wanna know what you have to think about sports once again text in the your sports opinions if you want 37937. It up on Twitter at real. Sauce man I'll be reading your tweets all afternoon I'm very curious to what you have to say about my show. Now the final one I have here in terms of people I talk to is this woman. Mentally I was wondering for the radio interview apparently you know what you want to broad new additional five million will have a after trading Tim Thomas left. -- That she was blunt okay I think you'd and finally etc. City Hall closet disguise the religious and think to say is one of us are some locations. It looked as I remind them. The only city in America -- with the bearcats beat bush some locations but look this. Item pick us. -- -- -- That I didn't understand a word of that except for the end we're gonna have an accident is -- series without. -- -- -- -- anyways that was Mayor Tom Menino in a press converts know I didn't go after him -- trees in the -- -- somewhere. All right to guess the more serious part of this segment the other day Kevin Garnett. Became one of sixteen players in NBA history to score 25000 points. -- actually. If so and so that's that's personal for me. First thing person needs a lot to be in a Celtics uniform now Kevin Garnett says something like that he's not be guessing you look at it'll -- Kevin Garnett really BS's. Well anything supposed to be glasses sitting wares to and from the games. What a 5000 points is a very serious accomplishment and Kevin Garnett to me really embodies everything that is good about the Celtics and everything that kind of brings back history of the Celtics apart earlier the game where Ray Allen what -- open to optimal to -- try to get him dump up. A lot of people or give them a hard time about that desolate. You don't play for us anymore you don't get doubts -- -- didn't think Bill Walton there is giving -- the bill Russell's giving doubts. -- -- bird is giving out so weeks ago. So it. -- is being played some nice. Stuff. The wind. And it -- -- tonight. There was a monument to -- for more than one reason it's a dissimilar. Random ramblings and random thoughts about the Celtics the big question it's -- in Boston all over the place I've heard arguments. On one solid the other is the insane assumption. Of the insane statement that the Boston Celtics are better weed out Rajon Rondo. You're really gonna say that about a guy who was voted as an all star starter and artists and the fans -- the ones who vote on that but Rondo is one of the best players in the league definitely. Here's where I think that. The dynamic with -- the Celtics changes the biggest change no Rondo and I think the biggest reason what itself have won six in a row. It's been transition defense wants those games. Rondo does not play trends as a defense he rose by any defense at all anyone that watches basketball and actually knows. What doc river system is looking for. Ducks' defensive system is set up the cards don't crash supports giver noticed that barely -- supports. I wanna get back as soon as possible because you don't chemical and has been a tough time getting back. The remarked I'm it's this old guy Paul Pierce is going to be tough time getting back. Robbers like to do that -- like about the system realistic gamble with steals and it hurts them against the team that can push. That's where your biggest difference I think with Ronald vs without Rondo -- look back in the game at Cleveland January 22 -- great stat line did a great job seventeen points tool thirteen rebounds. Eight assists. And the Celtics lost -- game by five -- carrier ring at forty points. Good young point guard who's really gonna push double open really go after it. And I think Rondo gets exposed forty points of ivory are now obviously he caught fire this is an extreme example but. The Celtics only loss like game by five and that was just their fourth loss in a row during its six game puke in my mouth of the rolled up on purpose losing streak. Nothing about the Celtics currently. Speaking of streaks is they are streaky team obviously were at six at -- allegory for seven a row they lost six or one point five -- -- Why is this team so streaky because. They rely more and more on the outside shot was the last time you really saw Kevin Garnett yet down in the paint hard making good salt post he locals. High screen rolls he loves that open jumper at the top. Those must round to get people off the dribble which is five because that tells work for Kevin Garnett but when that. Gets offended he's gonna give it to Paul Pierce and we -- Paul Pierce's that is shooting will support this season. And that's what the Celtics to -- event so streaky now. In terms of their chances before the season I thought it was hilarious where you've got Tommy hides and Mike Gorman. You know of course they asked the question already excluding the NBA champions this year so it's got a it's X it's -- Celtics. Tsakalidis it's okay if it is the Celtics -- -- for the -- hope I'm wrong but do you really think that. At this point the Celtics can beat the Miami Heat a seven game series you think they could beat the Oklahoma City Thunder a seven game series. On company enough to say that. But that being said. I will say this this incarnation of the Celtics team besides the the on the championship. Limped through the regular season they always out they've looked through ever regular season -- -- at the same exact conversation year after year after year. All the Celtics are bad shape also in the playoffs come around and bowl it's off. That's what they do and that's what they need to do it's an older team Doc Rivers isn't going to be one of those young hot head coaches who's gonna push his team -- -- he wants this team to turn it on for the playoffs. That's the only way this team to function. And the thing is it works it got into game seven in 2010 against LA with perk they're probably without a championship. It got them to a game seven with the score tied going to the fourth quarter in Miami in the Eastern Conference finals last season. So I think that the Celtics limping through the regular season. Actually -- work who has wanted to be up via text message once again 37937. On Twitter at real salsa man. And we've got all sorts itself to talk about here in terms of a taxi or some of the -- -- witnesses. At RCR 2004 yes that it put Fred Jackson on there and yes I'm part Canadian Emily French Canadian who lives itself Boston's -- And this guy says this -- actually employ the cream of the crop this year without Rondo where you need Rondo to care. OK for point. The lakers not the cream of the crop -- right about that a complete agreement. Like. This sample size of six games so far as you bird every single those other shows -- on it and I think it's true. Were six games in a row and I think the real reason or win these games is because the Celtics have recommitted themselves. Two defense that was another road that specifically. They're transition defense and all -- -- transition defense is in the MBA use and very important species whose get back together at B five on five. Half quart every time I think -- last. Five to seven years the NBA has gotten. Zillion times better it's faster it's a much better game but you're gonna tell with the daily clippers are not an elite team -- a pretty good. Toronto not only team Sacramento not league team. It is -- Miami Heat not an elite team 100 to 98 the final there in overtime that was the first of his current six game win streak. All these while Rondo. And do they beat the -- without Rondo while probably they're probably right and once again I'm not trying to say here. That the Celtics are better without Rondo there to -- different -- Courtney Lee knows how to play transition defects. Some -- about the locker room as law I don't think that's as big an issue is a lot of people are talking about as a text reports out here. Where Rondo brings news the -- of that dynamic the bad dynamic and Rondo in terms of people say he's a jerk. That is that your -- -- the jerk Kevin Garnett is the biggest jerk in -- US anybody. Nobody likes -- -- -- you know wealth of the jerk. Danny -- the general manager but Denny's as a player is the biggest jerk in the NBA that is the Celtics when they won the championship. In 2008. They have the mentality of we don't care what you think about -- okay. We're gonna come out here and punched in the face and ignore China puts us back -- for border what -- harder than your -- just. I love that Celtics mentality. I think that's exactly what they need to do grit and you know what is Kevin Garnett always talks about even Paul appears to be elect at a time calpers the tough guy right. He struck an Inglewood California he's a rapid enough Winchester Massachusetts congressman Wellesley mass Paul Pierce the truth. Literally. So. Anyway someone did I did a huge thing about the Celtics hope you enjoyed it we're taking your tax once again 37937. Be up on Twitter that's the real the best way to get ahold -- me out real sauce man. A real hole what's your tweets on the air and -- to get all sorts of interesting stuff here on yes they re entering the sauce man radio program.
