-- Listen to release daily. -- Like hourly -- -- 837 WEEI your phones. -- next half hour so big show coming your way. 61777979837. AT&T -- -- 37. 9837. Red Sox started their spring training games against Kabul college teams were jump back in your phone calls which ticket would WEE got a com's rob Bradford. As the real games start this weekend rob -- Why do I have to follow which started station just -- he. That's unacceptable I I can follow. It is up is it is it ended in this because he's been outstanding for last couple Fridays feeling -- -- weekend but. -- one -- user application into the assistant athletic director. It's called off. I was classic where he jog stroller just by Jodi Miller has years do you play WU deeper Oklahoma State. A liquor. But Ortiz -- you to know ought to talk about -- -- like okay that could prevail and good luck to them out. -- arguments David Ortiz committee update document. You know he interviewed children older you have the video public right now -- it totally agility drill a little bit of sprinting at the end of a menu appear -- a Buick. Because he couldn't score a little bit but it not a bad towards the good score -- not to be expected. He did have to run the bases. Could come next week the week out. He could pretty optimistic and John Carlson yesterday he really all he needs two weeks for the past I think you might need a little bit more -- that. If you will get more than that by its creator right now they were cute pretty domestic. Rob do we ever get an answer -- the question you know what really happen with the injury last year was it misdiagnosed it and did two weeks was there a setback that. -- -- talked about it seem like what he didn't come back and then have a slower process you guys -- them on the baseball show that that something was up that we ever get a solid answer on that. No -- there that care and there are that a durable over a prayer and and they may trend has surged to a near the turn don't look like -- might have been the right call. But I'll -- you what the problem was that you are you getting mixed messages are getting Bobby Valentine's Day a you might be back any time now. They were usually what we pray that people what he did come back. He he he didn't really get clearance from the traders he basically said -- guys turf -- the other way. I wanna give this world and we compete -- and I worked out either go. He got the right treatment after that and then you heard today that they go to -- is completely healed. And that compel a vacation but that's about it and and you feel pretty. Are you son Daniel Bard threw yesterday I think you reported that some Scott had a mid 94 and I think velocity spring training to be different season adrenaline going but still probably a lot of drilled for Daniel -- how did he look in your mind. I thought I was. Good okay I figure which is somewhat encouraging yeah I mean that was the first dictionary or -- computer sitting right around 94. Right right around that rain the whole time through a lot of fliers for the first timeout and and outlook generally get on my radar widely grown to -- -- and would do -- you know very good slider. But still -- -- -- right before him just counting the fastball throwing -- breaking ball. Can help it turned out to destroy -- fighter because if you blow it out of whack at you and your slider to gonna get it hard slog to the people back. And I tell you blast your fastball -- were much much better -- I was better better control. I gotta go I'm honestly I -- gaga about a outing with David Brock. And the -- influence a game or opt not to make too much so those big deal out of it. Blood he was the one that's an okay you know our. You're a little bit out of whack but you've got all you'll to ramp up let's go look at slider is -- right and that's exactly what worked it got me into a super hyped big repayment rocket could help what. Also just a little adjustments right I mean because that was something that we NC from -- last year's well. -- when he made adjustments there were all over the place. Yeah yeah yeah yeah and I think that. Good speaking -- just yesterday and but it was the right adjustment and he stayed loaded and now we -- you go from there -- I guess the last I think the last out ball and threw it exactly what you wanna do it right on the adult -- too much -- -- you struck out the side. Do look at -- command of the fastball in the last few through a pretty good. He's one of the biggest wild cards on this team rob I have we had him on the show of her Ramallah do you guys he's very Smart like he's a Smart guy. I think he might over think things who's in charge this year making shore he sort of stays focused and doesn't start to over think about any sort of -- -- -- amount for the Red Sox. What little we have Jon -- I think John -- -- in the masters say okay let's sit you know what the -- in just about the recent. If there's more than that this is we have -- big news here no YouTube there's going to be -- -- -- but you have to get things right. And so yeah who's kind of in charge of the didn't bark from the back I don't think it's been. And you are people out there the other day your belt they're working -- -- Yemen Tunisia and Pete but it is a little bit interest and that's what happened why you're good you've got guys. Who weren't that familiar Wear them. You worry hey you know try this or try that the project go to gonna have to do that but I think ultimately it's it's gonna be Jon Karl real -- -- how to get back where it needs to be. Where we that was Mike Napoli what does he allowed to do and what has been doing lately. Mike Napoli who can run the base -- on Sunday. And that's kind of the -- looting toward getting back in the game next week feel fine you know that is kind of the progression can be game until it random basis. Been doing everything else so I would expect that you would be back again next week. God that I was really pushing for a last year Jose Iglesias how is he looked this first one almost two weeks now rob in terms of what you saw last year -- this year. Yeah its current stance and approach -- calmer and -- simpler and do that encouraging. I think he's still won't know anything more under the -- and figure out about Iglesias who you saw a little bit of that. Today in the group fiercely taking ground is with Guerrero and Bogart's. But before it was all my trip that would typically -- you take ground can't let it go -- look much better years all the global good enough people out there are the other two more than they do. -- -- -- -- -- -- back the -- he -- the people. Describe your organization praised. But yeah I think it's okay. OK look guys that you're you're -- part -- the wild card camp I think the guy who had a Mickey in the important -- more than anybody literally Dell wrote. Go broke Turkey Parker and you don't hear much from -- -- but a lot of guys that you could give proper rotation guy that he felt fourteen. Yeah visit you say knocking him off from this year -- mean would it shock you with that -- he was part of this rotation at some poignant. Well -- you what you would be under very controlled environment you can throw more into an experience throughout all spring training. They're generally limited in the -- the year ago time. But I doubt now what it looked -- is only able hyperbole but it comes Pedro Martinez. Though you have to lift and do it. And guy out and grow about a little piglet and all -- them around everywhere. But how -- GB. Pedro he continued couldn't Roger Clemens or want our -- there is no doubt ruby -- good group dole wrote to complete college and -- my -- and hyperbole but I. Actually it's a good how good -- deal. Blog glad to punitive put him in his class that -- -- have to grab like hell I'll tell you welcome your paper over the other two just. It -- that first base a left field situation to trade for -- to see immediately go to the top a list in terms a car. Over -- -- ten -- Rolston that competition not a spot no Daniel -- sure. -- I think that you -- -- Curt Schilling number Larry clearly you know put -- methodical as well in my car group. Yeah I think you're right there Lyle Overbay. I don't think that you OP candidate. Well I don't think you'd go to stop -- I think you guys are you and they really like the way the numbers. Gonna handle himself the first page the other garbage merit over there a -- now -- by the end I was better than you look at first -- itself. But I I think -- you have got a group I think it's an open competition right now rule out the fuel the next couple weeks. It does seem -- spring training traits. It's still early in the need all arms but. Are we three weeks away from team's call and Red Sox about some of the bullpen issues some of the excess arms may be catcher even. Yeah I I think yeah pretty -- it's probably about rioting here is so bizarre -- and -- Because we create three weeks nearly all URD people should not. And yeah I think that's where he seemed. Number one. But you -- -- and cultural we can we can't hurt everyone can be healthy are your roster under orders Goodell and the media all you guys. The -- and you don't know you know what Africa that was supposed to power. Someone else you know so I think -- I -- I've been three weeks and a pretty good what you got in terms of where we should check back in on the. Alas what made it Lackey and Lester on the slate this weekend depicts looking at and each is ours to be capped out at and their starts. -- -- -- -- -- -- to double check on that beat. Good drug trial today in regards to Lackey got a secret to -- you step in and you don't really hear that a -- I first got -- first outing. But I think -- compared to a year ago period. -- W John Farrell that you're talking to join insurgents also you don't mind that the token -- it saw Ilya slippery breaking ball game situation for the first time. Third picked up by being worked together to all the guys -- But by -- last outing of spring between 9500 pitches around 4327. Innings. And that they can get -- there without any discomfort than -- a pretty good about things going. Rob great stuff -- forty covers throughout the weekend WEEI dot com and I'll talk decent. -- -- weaker rock -- for joining us on the AT&T hotline AT&T forgy LTE was speeds up to ten times faster than three jeetz AT&T. Rethink possible.
