Twelve he's or didn't do you really doing it and then that all of that what Bryant are often see in the one constant you. Baseball we look thin blue. On Sports Radio WV. Can you just instructed what to ask the team was ten and one with his starting in the post season. Well I mean there's an senior manager at Google I don't know loses stopping other. The whole war stat the other. Even so. You've been no time. I don't think Ken Rosenthal to get a Christmas cards ever again for Jonny Gomes Butler and 937. February the Jonny sat down to the feels like for an extended interview. Rain yesterday in the Boston Globe. PG couple quotes from this to get your reaction to that part of daily dime it. Spots like piece of this is not every quote he's quoted a lot in this stories merger to go He talks about his. Talks about his path to get to where Call before 2010. I played it 29 years old night in a hundred home runs that. Only one other guy in the big leagues had a hundred career home run to signed a multi year deal before the age of thirty. BJ Upton was the other guy. He was going year to year with arbitration. The other one. I was the only what eight years of service time position player who hadn't made eight million bucks reality domino brought the at the age of other guys and how much money he should have been making yeah. Here's the other quote I hoisted out of my reaction yet those is that. That that agent. It's easy to get a packet from the how that works of things ages that. He's telling him all about himself and I was this element is that the bottom and everything else. Not or agency look it up apple what but it gets more of an agent well he didn't always one as Rosenthal said it is well aware of that. How about this one then. There's no stat for winning player. It gets brushed under the rug they talk about a player's war. Hot money team war goals I've turned a team around twenty games four different times. Worst to first. I was on Tampa I was on Tampa team historically bad in 2007 I went to the World Series in 2008. The reds ended in the playoffs are many years when you're building a team. I'm last analysts because the lights go out you don't see the player grind out at bats run hard the first face every time. Or see a player respect the game and his teammates or through the way a player approaches the game. And the work ethic and a what I like is. Like this one I've gone from getting pinch hit for six times the first month and half. The becoming to pinch hitting guru guy at the end of the year a 78 and ninth last year abetting for. In the World Series. Here's the thing he has been in you know with budget everyday player maybe. No one's ours turned into a couple of times and in eleven years in the big leagues you know he's never made it to you to mind Nokia's best it was ever he's ever gotten to from the Boston Red Sox. The stick around the game as long as you have as far as at bats everything you have to be. Extremely confident in your ability and he has no question. At a we are belly backup catcher the his to Doug he's going deep knowledge that this is cocky Steiner team. In April it was twice a week or whatever laws once a week because you in order to survive you you have to believe you're that good Johnny does. You know and that's up in the playoffs. But he says that an intangible because a little full moderates such wanton soup because Johnny getting back in there again. Here you pack it obviously the World Series of three run homer but he is very confident. Armored guys and more talking about you could this be an issue. And if you don't win but he could. The year went last year there time to punish compliant but if you don't win it gives it its I don't wanna see here keep watch They've played in a World Series in America the most he played in a regular season but it could be you know I think he's very confident his ability. I think gold wanted to play more last year I read these concert nick for a today is a guy who sees the writing on the wall. That he's not gonna get a long term multi year deal the Boston Red Sox and his he's expressing. He's angst than that you Daniel lava. He's got to play. Final he's got to play via a lot tonight you probably won't you know it but the thing is these are realized it was that you what he can bring is. So that's pretty valuable not only you know pop off the bench it come off the bench bench quake hit some home runs but he knows you be good at bat on base. is a good clubhouse guy. So me at least I think of the I want state game long long time but. If he thinks those things those qualities. a three year deal with junior made no are very good deal for Johnny gold or. Last year was in this or it translate them finally be in the eight billion dollar player that he references right on right million dollar player. He's not getting the playing time this year to do that no and here's the other part of this he spring training the numbers are not most important but. Can make the argument price has been the most impressive hitter the Red Sox and spring training. Probably right in left field right they're getting mix don't trade him. He's now coming down the so for it's finally here is deal bioscience have brands waiting in the wings. I believe sees the writing on the wall that he's not gonna play a lot this year and is not gonna get eight million dollars from the right. And NB a because they can stick rise 32 years those can be 33 this year to the three or four years because he because of their presence he has on the team good power off the bench. He can survive in a play it's not just he wants to be air okay. But it might not be here somewhere else just stick around Camelot was very similar the last couple years what the Baltimore they want to bring amend it. For that presents a veteran to help some of these young kids to help them build something that he went to Toronto for the same reasons helped them build something. You know and and Jonny to be the same way. You know this year if you win it's not an issue for losing you guys are performing of the wanna be in that line. You know I don't think it'll be the make public. You know I don't think delivered becoming public up and it's really bothering this team he'll deal with internally privately. But he'll play in this game for a long is pushing to stay here. Hoping to be here. 61777979837.

Guys you know last time we want the cup -- we -- the first two games in Vancouver. Never stopped us from coming back and this early. When you look at the game could've gone either way and I thought we as a real great looks in overtime. Hand there was a little little laughter and we could have ended and before they did not that's an amateur game and you know they get a good -- they're tying goal. Cornell University so that's a waiting game goes on some nights you can -- breaks going your way some nights you don't but you know as far as I'm concerned. Two good teams and my dad played extremely hard and unfortunately it took a loser and a winner. Claude Julian very level headed as usual after the game but -- 937 WEEI the great Andy Berkeley and studio. Taking your phone calls and 11 o'clock the the common about Vancouver -- an interesting one because. I don't know why I didn't get appealing feeling some people. Are forgetting what happened the Bruins last from the Stanley Cup going to Vancouver. Losing a regulation game where roughly -- scored in the final minute to send -- home losing a tough tough game to. 32 in overtime. He came home down two nothing and that's theories you know -- years. They didn't play well in the third period -- overtime. Yelled -- gain any quickly overtime affect -- -- up they add on on goal I think about a game was over game one you go they're 00. Nineteen seconds to go in the game rafting tours gets the game when. Tough loss -- played well tough loss to combat game to get a 21 legal 13 period. Sitting scores 937 into -- -- overtime. Eleven seconds into overtime the -- -- -- See you come home down 02. Those kind of frustrating losses right I mean I'm sure at some point to set in cement and there are opportunities and the lost a great opportunity to split. They could have won through. Another come home to enough then. It's it's it's it is is there it's -- is a lot of parallels. Tools going on well do you remember at that time everyone. Or speak for Gwen -- like that he was well they play with the best team on paid for the presidents cup winner. Play with -- for two straight games so why would -- be out of they come home and opportunity still win. And that's what happened when the game three and you blew their dorsal -- there's going to jail according to one goal of the game three. At 507 of the first period. Down two games that nothing can score 00 then -- puts a hit on Nathan Horton. It's done. -- done for the rest of our it was averaging five minutes into the game will come. Down two games enough and Nathan Horton bit when he best players throughout the playoffs huge goals -- have so he goes down. 00 game did you did you feel good about that did you feel like they're gonna overcome. Losing one of the better players down to nothing at home. And and I heard the argument anecdote. Callahan and Kirk got a jump all albeit at the crossing L they don't have crop for at AI Longo he's a sale of if you -- knew that after the Stanley Cup but. You know when you went into game one we went into the series. In a -- Longo was number two and in each other regular season goals against. At two point 11 who's number three in NHL at 99923%. Action. When it'd be an -- runner up. The vehicle was the number one team in the NHL goals against. Game one he pitches a shot out with 36 saves. Game two he -- in overtime -- 28 of thirty saves. You go into game three. Did you really. Know that Longo -- good -- tires pumped. And he was an absolute mess in a row when he made 6466. Saves and the track record of what he didn't regular season you knew that over Bernal Longo. I disagree I completely disagree I mean it's religious history say and you might look back and CYL the year before -- -- really struggle. You know he opens doors blown up basically Chicago ran the Roman -- -- was -- through whatever give a lot of goals for Chicago won the cup. -- -- Crawford last year. It is questions of the way he performed against the the coyotes. 8983 goals against a bolt of home. Did anyone break I don't know OK got you talk about her. -- Bob. -- -- longer -- 95 goals against. The year before -- get the cup so it in the playoffs there was some there was some questions with them. Court profit last year first round loss to Phoenix 8983. Save percentage and those of say percent to 95893. Both against -- 2.5 8 for Crawford. Central Longo the year before 3.2 two both of a couple of the year before they weren't very sound. Okay and Oprah offer great regular -- Crawford look at Crawford looked just as good as the Longo yup the first -- So there's no similarities. 005 minutes in the game three you lose -- -- when -- better players you don't -- and at home I think there's a lot of similarities. I really don't and losing game one with seventeen seconds to go and eleven seconds and overtime of game two do we forget that both kick in the -- game kicked in that. Balls right there so it's it's it's similar -- I think both these teams are mentally tough they have shown that before and that's why expect. Honestly like. Every single game to be like this until some -- the cup yeah so you're not -- to be a let down -- from us I don't think this this program's gonna overreact guy. I can't the history tells you can't. Not only because the Bruins but the way the NHL finals and the NHL playoffs go. A one game where you were in it until a double redirect. Double redirect in the tying goal off of parents is scary yeah. 61777979837. The phone number -- and east and we continue with your -- a joke. Later on today guys -- Hey MLK yeah aboriginal. Okay -- not. Please don't mention -- in the same thing not -- this around. Crawford is every pound machine. And -- is right on top of that he's in control. Because a rebound machine last night on the first shot of the game it was a while but after that I thought he was -- committing -- him credit though -- mean it's okay right. Yeah -- -- -- recoup the level and an out of Barry Barry you lose. I was very against not ardent pro wraps until playoffs and he's incredible. I got an issue it Kruger -- which you got slamming crude. You got an egg there which are gonna talk to -- with her about that. But. He may you may state may clear the puck out of their own. It is it was from outside the Blue Line and they're they are forward. Picked up what it can't wait for the guy to get on site throughout the park and ended the -- happen now. You because -- a whole bunch of other. Irwin that made mistakes that wrapped in -- statement by. During the number one -- this game is because they stopped battling winning those little battles. And nick couldn't get it out of their own zone and -- the only one that -- it out of their own own its crew. Georgia they -- they had problems getting others on at times because they were all turning the puck over. -- and turned -- -- Joseph Ro Ro Chara dog and Israel Sega record all of real quick update. I apologize if we think it is Jamaican lawmakers sound like opening entire game and -- crew. We are not -- but the question comes into play. There was been decisions about crew with the Plame with the aid don't play him and and it's all about matchups in the speed utilized against the Rangers. And now any grind it out Stanley Cup you know he did not look shop last night and with that and you got a couple company guys. In -- Q I think they might go to maybe Wade Redden. There's there's there's talk about a possible move then this it's a good discussion. Quite frankly. Well yes and I don't think it's so early all the log on unclear because even later in the game. It all when I don't know pocket most egregious skated the puck out of the are on hand for the middle lights and and are up there with the sports. Laughter retarded overeat and he didn't get a chance to play again -- and regulate and he sap the rest of the way because Julian was so concerned. About his play out there except for what was it twelve minutes -- an hour or. So I -- I. This is not a knock on crew again the guy's been lights out. Since he got made a mistake but turn over changed the game and a few other options there people or text in Renton maybe -- read news. The guy he'll go to 'cause he's a veteran. But. I think map -- cow -- would be just as good an option and if I play crew on concern that. He plays without that edge which makes him really really really good I let -- watch a game and then reevaluate how it played Bart -- keep you wanna play redden I understand. I'm but I would sic crew and I do believe that that play changed the game got Chicago back in -- had a couple of minutes later. And it was swell game two and I was like game one -- up three theory that you put a whole different game that ended in a double re direct. 6177797937. The phone number AT&T text -- 37. 937. Get involved the shell on Twitter at -- Maloney at Mott and UT. WEEI. Ted Greg Bryant can't get all your phone calls and how about this.
