David Ortiz was a topic of some contrived controversy over the winter and into spring training. With a minority of misguided souls arguing the Sox had overpaid him there at two years and 26 million dollars. It's arguable they overpaid. You could say you can say a lot of people said he's not going to be good. It's gonna be injured today Richard you won't you won't play as he did last year we certainly prove those people wrong it's a good it's arguable that's 26 million dollars he is over. I would all -- Tomas he would be wells was gonna -- an answer of course nobody. Even close and even the owners you know Henry workhorse in its yeah we overpay him because of what he brings. On the open market I've would not have got more than one year to get one years at the most seven -- the most strikes and seven. It to a 26. John knows that he's vastly overpaid because of the intangibles. You know they they had this -- going in the camp going in the season.

Munich during here and new players and everything looks green on the other part is it really that simple. Are you asking is it sustainable. And is this real or just some sort of mirage were looking out -- which are asking. Well I'm 26 years old arm you know -- is younger hawks -- and mighty you know -- -- has always been like long. You know band and had you know seat but I'm wondering yeah is that sustainable. And you know it really that easy. OK it's just not a matter being easy it's a matter of guys performing in in situations like Buchholz as an example leads I think all of baseball with five wins. Lester is pitching very well Ortiz has at the ground running literally and figuratively. Knoblauch has problems more than anybody thought he possibly would Napoli has been better than anybody thought he would I mean it's just a matter of of good performances by a bunch of different guys. And you wanna throw in that little. You know that little seasoning of a good club house in great chemistry and that allows them to play for each other than the written that.
