Kevin Millar brought you by make insurance commonwealth mortgage or by -- tractor corporation and even though he said so. Last week it's now the and leaves the 74 consecutive time Lars but -- about tweeting about it and promote he's gonna be coming on its -- We take Kevin -- how -- -- Miami all. Nomar Garciaparra Q were you angered that you bent. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I listen I hear you but the combined it with the two was make forty million in our careers I guess that is important in our dollars yes. Much bail money in -- road by the way because that's I -- is. -- -- all our our road -- we were talking and about closers and Andrew Bailey's had a tough time in here I think he's got a pretty good track record Kevin he came up a couple of days ago I set it was not panic but. It seems like when John Ferrell says after the last night blown save against Detroit a waist in really good start for John Lackey. That he's willing to try other guys out that's a sign that. To be the manager even interest in trying to see what else Diaz and apple pan -- may be. But to make some changes there at the back and for the Red Sox. Yeah you know it's funny how all that's why -- say that the Yankees and that's -- the last six years and -- -- under tomorrow however trot out there. And just good guys every closer goes through this and wondered out and establish your game. -- -- to top Bob ball to the last three saves Jim -- don't want her in a more staged situation you know. Every single call when you're not establish cute name. Then you are right you're these rent these things and I think. The main thing is that Andrew Bailey is a closer and their Red Sox really don't have any other options are like they can lean on and they get Jason -- -- there. You know in the wings. The Bob why -- they -- help those guys they got they got ill bet it stinks because now you -- sure -- got Urlacher and got whoever they get spacing began -- like you -- -- those games struck. It's staying the player. But but what -- you -- Oscar got. Yeah I don't throw talked about it after was that Dickey sticking him by a -- gonna. And it -- make a short term movement in mid -- is now we are but mostly because our as the frequency which he can pitch but. You just take Bailey put a few less leverage situations maybe 78 get him inning -- -- get right. And it's his job long term well look at. Yeah it it's like it's like that it's like Al but the player little me when we look at it got a job and you an example you look down for all the while all the ticks all the terrible -- on his. Maybe in -- you don't Bob Bailey make maybe a few days off and and and what you said. -- straight -- for our situation. Maybe the offense scored more runs and other call -- it shape up -- situation. And you work I think the opening get back problems that because. The games all about confidence everybody at this level could throw it you know catch. But eagle would be able to three week period -- a comment doctor York Tiger Woods. On the golf course it happens. And right now -- -- -- Brett realize you know what a -- They've been rotating a couple of guys here this last couple since Iglesias middle Brooks -- -- -- here Kevin it. There's been at least somewhat of rotation where you've seen Iglesias get some opportunities there at third and get some opportunities that shortly did you were middle Brooks. -- realistically how long can that last before. One -- just the guy and the platoon starts to having negative effect on all three of those guys and doesn't have a negative effect it's a point. Yeah you know what what I've never been a fan of the whole platoon situation -- mean -- me personally I could stand coming in and out. Look at -- every single day in this match and let you know that you're playing at left handed pitching and you're planning right now to keep the problem as cruisers sort here. Correct or. Yeah he's a lefty group yet so the problem right now you got broke into basically Iglesias. Are sitting there. At shortstop -- -- that decision been -- -- brought it hurt -- keep your third baseman right now procedure our source. English here believe me you can't take away what he got why he's been up here I -- round. On the -- why do we know all. This guy not going to be a serve -- OK but he finds in the upstart rabbit -- it forty year. The way it is but they're gonna make a decision at shortstop is it drew or an Iglesias and to -- that's -- decision. I don't think this whole revolving door is healthy and -- -- -- -- three guys replica my check the lineup and you know that's just my opinion I'm not a fan of. -- we see a lot of baseball -- street that you share of walk off hits that. You -- put their helmet. Come around coming around third and basically gonna gonna gonna pick sharp -- they'll say that. Obama but -- -- everybody's forty yard dash from 1987. They would operate ran a little -- -- -- at the university of probably -- All the story as I've never seen any like jangled never seemed delay in the. And this is why this guy brings a dynamic to a club. -- laughter. Happiness of winning a cup let it be on your team yeah absolutely love them and all the antics and when he's not on your team you wanna choke out. But out here right now if you gotta love it in your plaque and -- -- Albeit. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pitching great cynical at three starts a -- deals and things but a look at Jonny Gomes and no David Ross deal with concussion and you know Ross might be in 185 -- might be in June 12. But other -- you know and I are you afraid -- -- you -- is a good quarterback quarter guy but they have an impact no matter what the numbers aren't a team. -- not mean you can hit it hard to explain and people at our end this thing for instance like Brian penny -- we get it. Discussions at all numbers. It's hard to explain it should it just works. It works but -- good guys good guys. You have to pick out. It works I don't hit -- you want collier but you know what. He's a threat he got it up there on the dugout he's watching every single pitch he got about our comical about bonds bonds. You know Dempster -- -- games like that. As much you like. What it wouldn't it -- go advocate start and grind out any good -- of the -- you need comic club and that's why the -- out the extra. -- -- at -- atmosphere the year when I think of those guys that think of you you know you're last year Toronto. Right I mean. It's like you know -- them Allard it's like Dario if he's got one year left to whatever he wants but this is a guy he might get 250 at bats but he is going to help our team he's going to give these guys right attitude. You know I think we're out at times Greg good pattern. Right but -- -- Eric Hinske is an example or I'll bet you an example -- kind of guys that you know. Well I mean I could elect to pick up from the Yankees corporate like sort Dallas and the contract now -- But on the same you'd get you better at it could become -- -- role players and these are what guys like -- rocks and media are. Starters but. You get to an -- we got a switch and turn bulked up and I help this team. And and not -- -- play cards and more you don't -- You know I go back to -- for second technology punt the helmet like -- after that he I'd Jenny -- you've done these before Kevin was -- the Red Sox. -- on field report I forget it could have been here it's -- yeah when you were here -- I forget but Jenny -- comes over that ball game winning home run what do you think. And he says the real MVP is Jared Saltalamacchia that do just -- back to back games of a double header and tell me. -- that is the sign of a team that that that team. Kevin gets that they might not when the World Series but they get a -- clubhouse. But it. You're exactly right ninety -- you know salty catch it or. And an eight -- walk up and -- get a -- -- but -- -- collector it was Dan -- I wouldn't -- too bad. -- RT we have we -- we get Dan -- good looking and wrote out there it was sideline reporter. The we dealt with via the mail situations lots. -- -- -- up to about -- in any area. I DC as a matter of fact he's had some of the post games that Tom Caron. Butler. A little bit different situation right now it we know the American least be competitive -- -- -- -- -- going -- we had no -- -- was gonna -- it was gonna finish last. Five games in the loss column now separate first place Boston in last place Toronto five games. You know this is this different divisions before we started this seat in that you couldn't tell me who's gonna win east. Yeah everybody have the right thing that got all -- and you're like the Orioles are just a great team but you're not thinking anymore offensively and -- -- They can win baseball games and had a -- like who's gonna hit tolerate real rich. I also an illegally run scored the first you know eight weeks like who Zobrist and Matt -- -- Longoria. And then -- the Yankees also brought in a while Akron and Kent and overbay. They get a green light and then the Red Sox -- better and better people thought he and I almost up they're going to be pretty decent. Going to be on on race all your logic -- divisions up or 500. As a got the point now on potential top where you guys just schedule couple minutes every night just talk about whatever you -- -- did that whether -- Wendell or whether he made a note don't ever done all but we just. It's all you -- -- all the time on leadership. -- -- -- -- -- -- Was what was you want Karl on call I like to call like OK to try to beautiful expert I've. USC product that are out there in California but -- good look at court. And I had a I can't block that answering.
