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
-- love. At our eight minutes you know that. I'm gonna try to clean up and you're warming up now you're -- I'm comfortable. I haven't -- Haven't used -- -- -- -- light idling its chair waiting for -- had not an apparent that ultimately this year I'm not gonna hear it. I Jessica -- and that's. A lovely blasier hearings covers the Red Sox for Comcast sports net so because she's here and we're gonna keep it Red Sox for a little bit and then. And the next segment we're really unique in the NFL draft with the patriots -- and trading at twenty ninth spot in the first -- -- getting the four picks. From the vikings talk about the four guys that they got they need your fifth pick today they got another wide receiver were detected Jason Lott and for our. I'm at 230 I is -- colonies gonna break out down for -- stays up for ansari one of the best that this sky last night on Twitter. Was actually the first night of the -- he Colin picks. Before they happen -- mean people kind of get patsy and Jason -- apple or is ruining the draft because he's he's he's so quick. To know who these guys are taking so being as well connected as is my acampora we're thrilled to talk to him. So for you patriot anti that there were getting into the draft any draft -- the Celtics. Can't. Pants with the Celtics. What market is they're saying it can't what -- their -- I just and that was that was a horrible horrible horrible. Game last night you know what sometimes you needs to do at this point. For it to spark something. That will really turn it around as far as making some sort of change the target they earn a spot where they can't they make changes so. The future as far as that's concerned looks a little scary but. Some dynasties and you know big threes and things of that nature they don't end with conference championships and winning championships and things like that they and in situations like this where finally realize. Okay. We just can't do anymore when this particular. Group group so. Maybe this somehow spark something but -- -- a tight spot because their bill with contracts that are gonna keep them in a similar situation so they're gonna have to figure. Something out obviously yet that's the mean that's the problem but it was funny because when you said that you know maybe it's gonna spark something -- -- to jump across the table and to. A thinking I know of for it thinking that maybe that is sparkly turned theories they're out. Late hour hey -- -- way down lie I did Levy a -- -- -- and just think -- -- So I I I just want to -- -- its focus on the Red Sox. Let's focus line. The patriots. At right now. Again I -- policies I don't care. She don't have a pro am. At. Is south of the policies that that's fine I just like in the Celtics. I had a good they see themselves and the -- asked me. All I DAX. Series would be easy. You know it it's. An ex Celtics -- But at this point to stop the bleeding it's uncle an appeal. The test here over at fox calls arc. -- near -- end. I don't I don't carry. Out pretty good internal whether Matt thanks. Anyway. So on that point one can't that it. Would you think about it coming up early like it. And you know -- -- I don't watch -- -- but much they'll age right now. So a concern pretty. Now I don't think it's concerning I think in the right. Right decision. And he earned that roster spot -- planes. And -- was no harm in bringing him up and seeing what if he had the concern I had with that if he came up. And it was terrible. I was a little concerned about his content because -- covered the Yankees that happened. Where he came up a horrible game. -- -- -- -- -- with -- -- in his confidence was. Was really shot after that -- a little -- -- -- get back just because I saw that first concern to me a little. I'm but the wait Jackie Bradley was play in spring training. He deserved it there was no reason why. You know he wasn't rated come up given back that he showed that he is raid like it was spring training games. I'm in also just the -- the health field looks and Jessica talk about the health field. It was something that time that they need and right now I'm so glad you called him about Jackie did you ethnic or all forgetting -- is not very well. Because everybody else is doing. Great and we're focused so much on the starting pitching in the fact that -- and pop culture Kerry expertise and and tickets its first win last night I happily act. Out his contract. Let his contract -- you know like. And the secrets about my friendship with Mike has told me that he's not even playing better or trying harder because of the money. He just plays and the way he's in the best shape of his life and he. He's having fun and we talked about the team chemistry because the -- -- -- getting a project at the well. Look what happened with Jackie the first few games he really did contribute to wins and getting off to a strong start which is something bad. People wanted this Red Sox team to do but did you know what they collect. So he was part of that initial beginning of the season spark that really help them. Get a couple of those winds out of the gates and then what happens in these situations pitchers figure out the young -- figure out. What his weaknesses and they attacked that and at that point. He couldn't figured out how to adjust to get back in the timing worked out well with David Ortiz working his way back -- David coming back right after the Boston Marathon bombings in getting that -- speed Austin's though the timing was great and now Jackie Bradley junior can go back down work some things out take the experience that he has. And get better and now he can try to work things out down there -- kind of get himself back on track and he will work its way out of this experience can really only. Help him out to work his way back. And now he's experienced the big league life -- told us everything is better everything is better in the big leagues and now we can work maybe even a little bit harder than what he was to get his way back so I think. He'll go down for the appropriate amount of time and maybe even longer and maybe one the Red Sox need him if he's worked his way back well enough he can come back and help now. -- and I think that that's a good appointee he can go -- town and he got a taste of the big. You know so he knows what he's -- -- I. Think. Senate likes it better that way I I don't likes to look at Abbas eating just ham sandwich and go out there and pitching strength as -- type of guy. He doesn't need a big old weight room and all that fancy stuff. -- -- take a bunch of giant water jugs attached to his stick and do lunges out in the street that's what he strikes me I eat and that's what I. You know what I ever afraid well in the art in TIS. This like I I promise I promise and EB. It's speak. He had so. He had not there it's I'd. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think Bobby Valentine was the worst thing -- it because I -- Even too much. The crazy love crazy thing. Is out. By you know why I with ace on and -- I think he's got -- -- -- act died at a lot. At spots are. He stretched out enough for. Obvious he did it stepped in Lackey. Needed. -- you want him to pitch well enough now traded against something of value for an -- that's what you want all -- -- in the minor. You wanna get its act -- at least have an attitude problem. I think that's happened now I think they have. Had these meetings with him where they like in training. In spring training they told him and his agent enough no more last straw here we -- and then there was a meltdown and out there at Fenway Park obviously I know Ferrell said it was performance base that we all know is not realize is yes. I -- Unita said as to go down their pitch well enough to get his penetrated the the Sox don't have to -- -- all -- money and get something decent back. Since I have to fill in the blanks and -- it is a Baltimore covered TT PR IR. Ford island at it's. -- -- -- that's the deal eighth but you know I. Honestly I've always been -- on the rest of the mean you can talk about how good it's not. But it might pay talk about how well they're doing -- And Tampa Bay has taken a step back. Baltimore hanging tough and entities by. Only April. But the fact that Chris Davis at a -- In the clouds are still hitting well. Keeping that line up. Really in all of their games they helping to mark -- as the amateur mean China at third base. Brian Roberts shocker he injured again and this guy please -- -- Enough can't take it. Josh camel we dealt with Alice and the rotation and and you look at the fact that this was the Baltimore or so to. Take area Crist on the act for. There on the kind of damage out. There hurt to carry it as having -- -- and elements not doing well. So if you look at the competition. The -- talks about it. I think they can stay better than -- take. Josh Johnson now is gonna miss his next art. Albertson's soreness mark early not doing very well Jose Reyes is Al eight weeks and Ari -- is not to. So -- the team expressed some of these Toronto starters. And of people just talks much about. Pictures not being able even -- players having a hard time just -- -- you -- it the losses that touched on offered. And you're against. Us. And Detroit and Chicago. But mark early has lost to New York twice. And cut the no decision I believe beacons cost and an RA Dickey has lost the ball in. And one to clean. You have to restart has just Thompson coming over from the Marlins are currently coming over from Chicago carried out from the -- coming from the asked me to actually. American League east. -- was we've learned spending a lot of money doesn't care and I he wins it it. Increases the chances of winning but it does not guarantee that your going to win. And even even the regular season small way so we still need some time to see how the -- lethal shake out you know we're just. Lower a few weeks in a year but I I didn't think is gonna happen again I didn't think that what happened the Red Sox could happen again. Another team we're starting to see it happen with the blue jays and it think. Maybe there could be your recipe for a big problem there like we saw. In Boston but. Spending a lot of money doesn't guarantee anything it's -- it increases your chances of course. But it was I I kind of bought into the blue jays at the beginning of the season by -- apprehensive about it because of what happens here we were scarred by what happened in. Off and everybody it's that the credit Alex and topless for the job that he day. Average take a break here just aren't in studio on general WE -- radio Africa talk football it's Jason -- and four I believe that's at 235. I want to art at a time is Al given the based off segment coming up before football though. Come back after the break. Well we've been overlooked and the board we. Took it guesstimate of what we thought the value would be in what will the two extra picks basically that we got were 83 and one of two whatever was. So we kept down 89 and it was 59 there was. It's so -- -- we felt like those you know that we would get good value their thing. The conduct on -- in addition the seventh welcome back on I think you know. We can make that trade for the that the draft started we probably would have made it on Wednesday. And and never thought I it's I know the draft expanded. Health after back -- go out and get yourself some value. Hey -- you pictured and loved to hear that now do and that's what they guy I think I. And it started drafted you know if you're gonna do it again that's with the ones that are just gonna say I'm horrible drafts I'm not that much out Mary and -- wide receivers. They got they got some help on the secondary. For those that don't know it just to recap they treated number 29 for four X the reason why they hinted -- asked for only five -- due to. Losing draft picks for the trades. To leave Ochocinco and as it -- I if they finished with. And that was after day -- that's fifty to 59839. Line. One it sued to 26 to twenty to 35. AM. More picks in the seventh round. -- -- -- player right now. To get a seventh round pick or -- and it was -- But it can't point you show up to camp and you hope that you write that girl I likely be spa weekend. -- But yeah this is the -- to trade down. He said. But they loaded up on valuable guys in the field holes my question is ethnic got a wide receivers. You know. -- dobbs and out of Marshall. I'd joints Trey brown cost to both Cameron Marshall and I didn't drop a pass last year. And his senior year but my question is this is is he asked if not for its IP that the it's going to be please spree. Is it better than and Emmanuel Sanders and staying with Pittsburgh. You know they also lost -- down guy's brain and noisy and it would head. These are good wide receivers. I -- and of course in Los Welker and charity replaced by. Any Amendola it and take a running back am obviously eat one by my my concern at this -- it's team. Is that whole -- -- to bring him on -- -- and not easy on. That now. Proven they don't need that I worked without it. They have worked at a time line. At Baltimore typical boss in outrage and I'm Atlanta group. In just a lot. Of -- I'd be discussed it you. Coverage of that by. Act at the -- And start -- it. -- -- -- -- -- -- I was eight high heat on crumbled. And -- -- he's extreme compliment our pets as an act. But what the -- hail Mary. And those please catch this ball. And profit down if you please catch it if it wasn't for the for the chemistry between. Joseph Flacco or -- I'm not sure they would line there were a lot of passes were shocked and humbled and high. And that Super Bowl in a lot and into the deep balls and concern about the chemistry with a wide receiver. And and read it. Anymore. No you still have your obviously your guys like rocket hope got to stay healthy Hernandez not a single Amendola. That's going to be a huge transition out of the Welker thing we need to pump the brakes on this new kid at -- guy yesterday and it's dobbs and -- I know even know check. Bush try to temper some expectations but. He he does look like he had some very shirt hands we certain audience. Well good he has a small he's not dropping passes I ride this morning I was let me know drops on 92 targets as a senior. That's pretty sick and there's that one YouTube clip of -- out there that's been going like -- the last. Less than 24 hours -- backhand. Catching Indians in the end zone around the guy and coming down -- it those are the plays that. Everyone loves to see of course now. We got to pump the brakes on this guy the patriots needed an outside receiver they got one and it looks like this guy could help them out but it's still. It's too early to tell I mean it it's. Yes it's division one football but it's also it's Marshall were dealing so let's kind of pump the brakes take a step back and we'll see how this kid plays it now. I love you brought up the clips -- has. They're number 91 panic CT derived garment makers. While -- best friend got drafted together Logan Ryan he's the quarterbacking is number 83. -- arrived at any. I know I ask you does not this -- is -- place that. Look at that and I loved that have attracted mama's watching I let the man that that's something I'm. I thought that was theories you know nothingness. And again back to -- good I think it is. Reading some of the comments from the could be orders for the patriots. They love these two guys. You know Ana and bill Belichick's say you know even errant dot -- heat heat like that he was one of the smartest wide receivers out there and he's not doing health. -- -- -- When your football Smart yours mark I at work ethic. And the fact that Logan Ryan in Iran Harmon. Our best friend. I think is -- an -- -- the academic and secondary because DeVon Courtney. Makes my makes my head. It would those guys played with by the way yes but played at them at Rutgers but that's -- with Belichick you don't have to necessarily be the most off the charts. Charts athletic guy arts as far as that term but if you're Smart. And you can learn the system and you can go to the right place at the right time and that's what he wants and these guys from what he's told -- so far are Smart ball players so. That's something. To look for and that's what he wants that's what he's. Saying he's drafting so if these guys are Smart enough to learn what he wants them to do and be there at the right time and that will obviously played. Huge angry. I'm or its new. I don't I'm glad to -- payment and -- is more -- the -- the bulk of the draft. I'm glad it's over and I'm glad that. They filled the holes like I said before it got there at their help in the secondary got it -- -- I'm. See these guys -- -- okay. On -- path and I can't really say that because of an end and rock -- their two regular guys by. You know we hang onto that. He's on his talent you know we don't have pylon. Is two doubles and and I don't know I'm I'm in the keep sports scene with these guys. Ain't. You know just. That the fact that they were -- quarters. They did it -- the -- -- was no one wanted. It to Minnesota and at they have all these options. Jason lack of forest and join us at 235 after the break he's gonna break down all of these guys talk about. Is 2013. 1413. That's good enough. Patriots team and -- talked after the break Jenn -- here with just memory. -- -- this is why building relationships. Over eleven years is in -- Okay I'm ready to learn I -- we gonna learn from my AA. Hero. In the NFL. I'm Jason -- for. Well as -- Out one of -- very very good friends. From Baltimore and CBS NFL insanity is our eyes to an. -- beauty. Eighth and -- for me. -- But yet you know pulled me a lot. Robert you don't like all the public -- or -- -- well that's that's certainly on the -- your bio like it but god. The world Europe. You should guide you -- book art you would look really cool jays right here. Because you're calling. First round draft before they even -- now sell why is your secret. But a lot of people you know. Boarding call eight. Acting trying to get to work like predicting -- figure out what's going on in real time. You know -- back not looks like it. It would be sure it'll probably. You know I mean -- -- that aren't yet I think all black I'm not part. What what's going on their terms of the television product it. I have a job to do it CPR chocolate -- product. But the most important and the most accurate and timely can be so we've got -- actually -- -- -- -- get what -- -- we are a lot there tractor and a weaker outlook that. That we've got all the extra 41 and a leak out and announce to eighteen yet. You know that -- like. People who wanna know what actually happened and what was actually booted it straight -- -- a -- up and what it might be picked them rather than you'll be surprised at that. Lot of the -- also. But it all I have got to do it also. In -- China at that -- -- -- the -- -- -- optical auto sector would be at all. It's funny -- -- at mainland -- sweetie you might still are enormously. High grass but -- announcing the -- soon. I mean really instead of anger -- doing awesome job stay off -- -- that they up but the letter. Well you know it had it I try to be pretty well -- let my plan or because. I would not part of any agreement -- not put information out there is precedent for major. Eight to generate information and story and -- that. So act of the world where like I'm put up like to there's an economic development shall. -- at the top shelf I'll meet our -- that's totally cool idol I never liked. At the -- I'll I would never hurt anyone -- -- -- like people what they want it picked it would have been wars that's also that's straight about it so. I was told that it'll it'll follow me if I get it put it out look at it that supply. Well I'm an approach that from my job and that someone who. -- our report would not believe it to provide a portrait and if you don't want it. And then that's cool but it's -- in the same age will be live at the minute -- it's pretty it's packet the packet. So the bank could get a lot of that. And not had -- find out about it when that -- big paper. Whatever government another architect and I have been out to the victory behind you know -- a lot at apple really that also. I mean I don't know what. I would imagine a lot of reports that you want to let go up to eighteen yet. And await another pilot sentiment of the year you know I want to party -- -- it up again Apache tank totally get it that's all great. What torture collect. Well you know it was awesome anti tastes and those guys that are you might load game jerseys with -- based paints it we aren't like Rand Paul and screaming at the state. I'm at a loss towards the as the. The audit that the firmer and that's about it that the people out there and -- -- -- other -- of -- and that's what I'll repeat Mahdi Army. He they wanted to wrap it up -- overhear what the -- start to eat I got -- pretty early in the locker pre op. -- -- saw them they -- the people just lined up and really get it it is what could be around it line up on the streets of say and it they're all very outfit on and it looked like game day meeting of the -- Secrecy Utley hit a meaningful football if they think -- -- -- that they've got to figure out. And they're gonna hit it's not a monetize all these things that you need to try to make it here ground game. But actually pick in the draft will be out later create a little later the purpose for everything a little -- -- regulars here. But I get a lot -- you know ul PA while some of those issues particularly moving appropriate but. You know -- come by and let people back in the draft might be more accurate -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and every -- -- -- the -- -- or the event that the -- -- A bit earlier saying the NFL is about to. The basically what you're saying is the NFL is about to rule the world. Well -- what the world the aptly put America if it and you know what I'm actually tactical guy wires could be the what is all fired up the next ten years. Would not surprise me at all and we got what two games over -- out. You know look at ticket flowers and that even expand -- apartment -- receiving -- in -- They like order to the world but right now operator ruling certainly the US -- -- -- -- -- -- Right here knowing that we want the patriots throw the -- let's get into patriots draft picks. And pages only AM CT it's not panic in the first. I am. Two part question three part question I'm what are your thoughts and and trading -- out with Minnesota when he. I'd gain those four picks back. How did that move benefit that seems to start with Aaron Dobson on Marcel. Can he be placed -- light and will he be placed upon wealth. Well I'll say it I mean caddie caddie being what they hope random luck with the when they signed them. It out of the gate because you look at -- -- and what it is big here -- quick judgment in their opening in armor like that any. Replacement randomly in -- -- virtually -- I think so until we look at an upgrade over that but so much the deposition and that if not all that -- you. It really was and they got older some even have about a player that -- gonna be the jacket pocket you drop the order that he's. I don't but the player they export route so. It looked at what are your look support you one spot you want him out by -- politically you've seen out all of these are even now what Lott beat. -- -- -- -- All of that equate it what I want a cute -- there or not. This was not a normal scope out there it is always are a -- that advocate war the war but the only spy. And it's forty RED -- and make much sense because there was still so much value with somebody -- also required to report that. You can justify it in any guy much further down the line and let's replace the -- Democrats are picked up all the -- -- -- squeezed it sort of really well there I love that trade idea to try to -- back again. But that gives it that it's where it fourteen draft -- it will. That Belichick at the other that you only does it look like soccer player -- -- argue look you are required. There are excellent but like he didn't care what anybody thinks aware of their order your hair chart that fact that nobody mocked the -- You've got security you have an upbeat Kerry earned that right and you're right more often than not nobody gets back the -- I get that back. You know it's not part of the plate -- it played out I thought it would get so much at. They traded down and got. More picks and that it did they make you go well at the act and the fact. Re talking on CBS's. And it Allen said Jason Michael Mori and Debbie Lee radium and accurate test and -- in studio. You mentioned Rutgers and how Bill Belichick loves those record record -- guys. The two I that they took their best friends I am cornerback lo and Ryan safety deride -- I. Obviously they want it help in the secondary they got it. These two guys. You know were they right -- -- -- the patriots day and and just look at it -- according who makes my head explode every time -- watch him play. It is this exactly what they need to read these two good picks for them. A little shaken up but their body and I don't -- -- -- you're not I mean I'm not. I'm not -- value economic information gatherer so they like these you're not with you more than democracy. Like pat does it matter because you know a lot of get a -- particular right in other thing I would like to read it it it it got you know -- checked as. He wired Internet -- -- -- Ritchie until you pretty much got in the jobs that pay. It brought him much on on other competing now but they're not the -- it and I'm sure that the Shia split about them for years and not appropriate -- -- Cricket shot played there is not an art it sort of those people their although exactly the kind of people we market every -- that -- -- people. -- -- Expect that out of date the facility the other you know you know. You're you're bigger profit than not it at all on ya ya ya so. Eat out -- -- -- and all -- it was a tie here has acquired it you know what Urban Meyer era Cammermeyer out of Florida. Obviously at the on those guys in -- sure -- eight the year accommodate Mexico but under the act and one almost got it. You know you're comfortable about a meet cute you know Herbert but he looked so not -- doberman -- -- -- it's about. Figure out what makes them -- in China on Internet -- -- you're out their original older than anybody else. And it's here in the market that everybody is undervalued it and I don't know why why have more value in them. But -- structure -- -- -- and I get I get an architect now let. You know at it again. I felt the -- I did it at that they've -- actually eating or super ball. And what secure -- summit itself well and and I think people need to give the benefit -- I'm gonna get an incredible look at the traffic weather traffic and restrict our stock. That happened on the side but again that they've built and replenished and maintain a pretty good bubble without -- -- out. Jason Jen loves you so much this is Jessica that I wanna talk to ask you a question so I'm gonna just jumping to take over for -- what can tell it's not the first guide at the pats took with -- Jamie Collins cannot southern -- what you know about him I've seen some stuff about questioning his effort maybe. Yeah I've been out or not told him but you know I. The picture -- -- not enough -- pretty quickly you know you -- your -- -- I think you know you're gonna make even you're going to be you're supposed to -- Buy dot you can argue that all the parts of that that the other -- that they can afford quite there a lot of times -- -- -- -- record the sport because. They don't about the -- for me the senate quarterback position would mean all it could actually get threat but that's -- -- -- at the -- but never gonna happen that the secret. Popped into problems are up my program. The bottle you anything about it at the -- here that that the threat that you just expect Ed. Actors are a lot the other you that you were part of a lot of other is -- better -- -- is a lot of it. And or go to sell its duck out it's not for the Porsche program and at a particular watch all the carrier -- of the deficiency somewhere. You know you can not infrequently because that ball fly that not -- -- like. The rich get richer and you know you can get about our ultimate -- or that same period hockey Newsom. You treat that back there you know the -- the other Cleveland -- -- -- the -- -- its basic beat your ass and and more often than not it works because of that they -- so much secure wanna be part of a winning program and they realize the right way to protect. You know we like to beat up on the jets here Sundance switch gears for just a heartbeat what do you think about what they've done here what with Tina -- I mean really I think he can it get any bigger of a circus in the -- I you know look I I don't enjoy taking shots here -- because they -- at the lot of them now that. When you -- the circuit that found in people and all that it opens up a lot of criticism that got a lot of horrible contract betrayed its salary cap that. It dug themselves with it all you know pick this basic that -- -- -- culture get caught up -- of winning it in newspapers and now all of it out. I'm not are not all of game day as I like on that I think I'd like -- Straight Little League ball airport we are an excellent. He took the bat he threw it under those circumstances. And in terms of the -- I mean. They've -- let it sit there what the tactic is to protect you somewhat of -- At some some real whites and at some white desert heat -- -- what's been lacking it needed an interior presence there. You know where they got -- the early data are stuck with it that scenario but the contract with. He's not the secure the port that the future is in order a lot if you look at the quarterback of the future somewhere around that the pick at a particular actor. District court -- and not put it up and I think. An egg -- the court. The band I think it's not a pretty -- like it's great that our people or something you become much better aren't activating their on the roster for awhile I probably going to be who were not what you. At the -- mark. Like you will with -- yet so consider -- air I'd attack Iran without fire. And is Eric salary cap meant to -- and don't create it I actually think it -- out there. Right -- -- -- immense and replacing Revis I don't know if anyone can but the jets did say they got two of their top top four choices on the board. -- talking about -- and it went thirty ninth what happens Sanchez. -- I mean it didn't report that there may be -- them at I mean I thought -- it absolutely impossible beat it. Why reality in March into the art poppy you're right about that is that salary cap hit would be apps and now well. And at what. -- -- if it hit it close at nine million. And so it is contract out of the -- all which means the players leave economy goes somewhere -- and there's two million instead of -- -- you'll get it. You're up you're sick there's all that by the amount of money -- The other of any offense so the law that you. Regular contact the multiple bank okay and that money payable over 18 march of that money it all over your ears or get back. He's doing it with a series of the bird and it. Now it payable thirty days I don't hear the return what triggered -- -- and one of the best players in all the world leader. What do -- -- the team or -- year accurate it is going to be create that value of the army that their market -- not billion dollars. In the span of thirty days just to get off the clock just to leave it at the -- but they concrete things. But that doesn't make that doesn't make it back I mean you know it -- -- -- we want you may not but anyway you know. Six interest schoolyard outlook I think he's a typical -- there. But -- -- them they don't have to what he has meant that you try to let that thing play out -- but I don't see them cutting him now is it accurate I really thought and you Tucker picked up that. -- know you duke people want to contract with the iron flat screen but don't look now. But they let it if -- -- we feature that I replace the U. It is not clear but otherwise a chocolate dot com or there. Last question -- literally seconds left -- division. Easy partner or. Not it. On right Jason -- and Laura my best friend in the world. Zero CBS senator -- addict or via -- solicitor Aussie may and I drank cocktails oysters on rock and roll. Our thanks for joining us to act and aren't they say it's -- Florida CBS. And a balance I don't hear it just -- -- take a quick pre packed with. Back here WEEI Sports Radio -- -- here with the lovely Jessica -- you it's. I made it I today I well. Hours are you did without really setting the place on fire spilling anything on important equipment -- talking about. They're cooking cleaning segment that I thought we are gonna get -- I had I had tips for cleaning a bathtub without using bleach that now. Yeah that that has earned those yet which is not that people were tweeting me Tina but it's blowing -- -- -- just a tremendous. OK so -- cats and I clean up backed up like Jared. Right not a single spot on it brand new -- and you're coming -- after that cleaning my -- and I think they. Okay and the fact that we can't speak and -- And weaken -- To the yeah it's funny because. When he that with me. -- you talk about. Is important for me. I've dealt with them it's in the past one in Baltimore. And Ali. We are the best of friends and -- -- trying to test and ask our attitude and eat now. -- and be all such different. -- -- Refreshing that we're about an inch -- I'm not no no let on but we don't get a lot of Jason -- that I think take what you guys talk about at dinner and bring it to every and we haven't even mentioned -- yet we -- boy.
