  2. The Chris Villani Show: The Failure of MLB Replay System

    Sun, 13 Apr 2014

    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!?!

Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Yeah about that. Parks offer today is just work five days relatively back tomorrow morning. Will be talking. Between nine and one tomorrow here on Sports Radio but I'm very happy to be working with John -- and yes. It is weird considering the hours that writer works that we've never had an opportunity to work I know reported that we've both been at the station for such a long time and I'm in the -- now for seven years first time or equated the -- from happening -- an -- and at one of those deals where usually am on my way out the door and an -- -- this way -- -- vice Versa. This is one of those times when -- both of -- are on our way in the Dora the exact same time and and happy to do that we've been talking Bruins and Celtics again not so much football at that time year. We probably aren't gonna get into some all star game break down now got -- handles our games I had All Star Games in every single sport. The only one that's even they -- Fermi is based -- And me -- when you were key it off and you didn't get to seat. Interleague play and and you really there you know you have the game of the week that was the only chance ever had -- the National -- grown up in New England. And so you know the all star game was like it was it was planned -- week around the all star game. That ended a number of years yeah I mean I mean when is the last time it was good maybe the early ninety's may be then. No -- eighties it was great for me as cal always looked forward to that. Seeing Andre Dawson a different players have and actually they never would see on a regular basis -- out. You can check out any team any given time now with a wayward if I gave you 300. As total points for the all star game to take the over the under. That's a good that's good slide under. Barely I mean 300 is a buy out or -- -- You know 151491. Of those deals. There is no defense there -- end. Just thought and a whole weekend thing that. Those have you worked for you Portland red cloth fans waiting to see -- two representatives in the -- league all star game. Pop and good luck to the celebrity. Game I. I mean you're gonna have to explain how some of them qualified as celebrities but it was there. Tonight's though all. Slam dunk which again has a date goods since the eighties and it only way that could be interest in the slam -- card contest deal would be if -- was -- -- Kevin Doran some of the superstars were in it but there's no way of that ever happening the only way that would happen. And fans are gonna like this is if they game more money game plenty of money to do it that's the only way to compete and and even. I mean. I just I'm not an all star game and by the way for those of you say this is meet kicking is the NBA around he ate all star game. And you talk about over under the NHL all star game is about a 1211 and the only good part of a -- the only good part. Was that the all star game disappear I feel bad for the folks in Columbus which is where it would ban. Those people who wanted to their city in the business would have brought to the town. -- NHL all star game is horrible hockey believe they can never seem to figure any of this out they try to get people who watch. In the NHL you have. That they've got back to the traditional right the east vs west for awhile there were two indicted team USA vs team -- -- or team North America rather vs -- Europe and and they've tried every single thing same thing with the the the Pro Bowl public the points total approval that that has to be the bottom of the list out of before the Pro Bowl for questions I I. I know that there has been talking Goodell has talked about the possibility of doing away with -- itself a favor and away. I mean it is the worst of before and they're all stupid. If you ranked them you'd say the Major League Baseball is the best of that lot. But the Pro Bowl game is is the single dumbest thing in the history of sports it was funny about it all more people are interested in who gets elected to these things and the games themselves. -- -- -- Who who sent to the all -- -- talk of for the probable there was much more talked about. Who made it who didn't -- there was about the -- yet I feel like that's the way about the way it is with all of on this much -- conversation about the snubs who doesn't get -- -- who gets -- than the actual game itself. I just I think that there's a whole lot of interest in all our games in general. Dan and I know that they -- cash house for the leagues that bring a lot of the corporate sponsors into the cities that's the only reason that the NHL. You know has a a big concern about the the all star game is is because of its corporate. Partnerships and bring people into the sit wine and dine them and all that stuff but there. I wonder if anyone could even. Off the top of their head know who won the slam dunk contest last year. It was Jeremy Evans of Utah -- gets any playing time committed. End of the bench guy. Ally's fallen pretty far from Dominique Wilkins Michael Jordan days. The appear. Shoot I was the ground I mean I mean that was the last time that it yet one Wendy Brown was pumping up these views -- and there's no new moves -- -- everything's been does a limit isn't there Dwight or powered with a cape I mean everything's been done already. Blake Griffin over the key right I mean there is sort of there is a limit to how far you can take it how many things you can view -- I just. How much interest there is for most folks in the east thanks. Big -- and bring to -- any I don't. That there -- so glad to talk to you enjoy a thank you thanks man. Is that the forest what is in the long. Wow you're the -- assets and thank you got a couple of questions you and I hope I get for you guys again. Yeah well -- like to have little problem might also return saying you neighbors. And I really enjoy you. As a broadcaster and TV guy juror neither tremendous voice on the radio thank you gonna -- and now my question is. Two white peonies in that battle. That we can't get here. -- I'm just I'm not a huge Dwight Freeney -- to begin with and and I. Part of this the issue is I guess you know these guys who played against the patriots and he certainly had his moments but I think they're somewhat limited against the patriots. It if he can't get to you with the spin move in and rush the quarterback. Then what's he gonna do for you have to be a limited does too I would think there'd be more interest in Charles Woodson read read and Dwight Freeney from the patriot. Well okay if that's you guys think and that leaves -- out. Components. -- are -- I thought leaking -- he was gonna give -- police 1612 vehicles. Because when he was against us that's sort of the that would be anywhere any place and he'd -- the -- put a puck in the net. And the companion is working out the same way. Well I think I think that it worked out very nicely up until the point where Aaron Rome and rushed him with that vicious cheap shot in the middle of the -- Don't forget that the Bruins don't win the Stanley Cup and I mean as an -- I was just gonna mention that a lot of people in the were so many. You first think of Tim Thomas but there were so many tremendous players -- may support one of yeah I mean just in the Montreal series alone and the overtime game winner in game seven. Nathan Horton was having a are spectacular playoff run up until the Aaron Rome -- a 90 really what I got no issues with Horton now. Sense that yet in the ensuing concussion and the limitations he tried to play last year. Took the second shot I think it was January 11 against the flyers. And that ended his season. He's actually been one of the pleasant the -- right -- me this is the -- six -- seven point somewhere around there. And and looks like Nathan Horton yet. You know a physical presence in front of the net. I I -- -- wishes without Orton is the -- -- -- on the cellphone AJ I don't. Details build on that but both you Gallagher drilled into. You guys are argued -- Saturday at a normally I don't think it's probably don't and I looked at the opera. If he. Well we can't sing for you if you want tail and paparazzi having the same deal. -- -- -- Is that -- the Mets on Lima that it doesn't. I didn't get out it's a summary I don't like if I I -- I would b.'s presence osment who properly -- -- it. The question when you talk about the -- I think that the have the best. Ought to any of the I think he didn't -- what you get is that all of and there are little you agree here this. And -- and even that and now look I was at Fenway Park in 99 run home run derby insignia with my brother in the tool set your watch and it and it was a blast. I -- admit that even that has kind of worn out all right as that. Well I'm just not say that that that met their worn and worn itself out there and that as you have said in -- I think that the federal law. Yeah out there that comes up but the other thing I want to go look at when the call it starts all start like what was. Boy that was a long time ago. Yeah and and I can't even picture doing it now. I mean you'd be afraid of guys get hurt although the way they played. Yeah well I think some -- the -- can -- and -- is that the future of of the college stars that are out there another at you and your career they get injured about. And also targeted by the I don't play it up they play in a call at all star game another play enough. The Senior Bowl with proper -- wondering -- -- bring that back reviving a habitable but who knows. Yeah I that's not ever gonna happen I don't think will happen again and you are right there used to be an interest in that you know back in the day. I just I think -- fortunately. The All Star Games just as a general rule of kind of outlived their usefulness and I think that and as I said Major League Baseball is the closest and you did have that the disaster in Milwaukee and ran out of pitching and all that stuff and but that was a one time thing that happened. I mean Tito's talked about deal -- when you're managing an all star game your only concern is making streak at everybody and right. And you know you don't run out of pitching you don't have that disaster happened. For the most part though. You're watching tell your guys are done. Where you watch until your -- gets as it -- something in -- I think the most ridiculous that got to do away would this determining home field the World Series with the all star winner. Do like that I I I now I I I never thought that it mattered. I never thought the guys played differently because of that. I mean he really think that the all star representative from the Pittsburgh Carol city right -- you know sit on my got to -- a sense of National League gets home fielder. They don't care and nowadays you don't really away Tito and and other managers and it doesn't even enter my mind as a managing the game. I don't even think about what this time it counts and -- home field was writing I don't think any of them even if you're on the you know the Yankees are a team that might be there is expected to be there I don't think -- thinking about it nowadays to these All Star Games. You know NBA guys usually show up but for for most of them. The stars don't contemplate. And in baseball -- start to bag out a little bit more while in in courts in the NFL it's it's almost all your data like the sixth quarterback before it's all said that now the beauty of it is is that you can say -- -- five time pro bowler. I'd be more interest that -- mobile that player actually participated. Right. Well that's what they like early in his -- and I'm Tom Brady played the pro. Point I that would be an interesting thing to look up we'll try to do that if we can during the break although. It's a short break and I'm right back your calls for Sports Radio W media.
