Now Red Sox got to feel that kind of cocky right now and real feel good about themselves again. Five days off right to Saturday Saturday -- game one at Fenway who sort of travel whoever they play. Is gonna have to -- and series travel because as we know they're heading out to Oakland right now for game five which will be Thursday right. That's correct so so then they get done with -- game 51 way or the other. Travel East Coast no matter who it is right. Not as bad as what the rays had to endure but still. Not a heavy travel and posted most traveled to because they're go to Detroit Oakland Oakland back to Boston whichever team wins that thing and that's. You know they've. That's -- section meanwhile sitting there -- law allowing on the chaise lounges -- tell you what Oakland's been of all the time I tickets are a stat where the a's -- he since 2000. And and his sons. Errors one an eleven in elimination games. -- -- -- -- -- The a's are seated as they've got a funky budget dude is similar nor are they playing loose they are the Red Sox of old they've got Coco Crisp they've got a jet lauer read they've got -- Brandon Moss right. My whole hostess two more on that team out to Redick. Well yeah and and what more pull former Red Sox what they have one starting Bartolo colonial artists are right now he counts he counts former residents even though. He's -- mystifying. Steroid -- Illegal operation. Fire plug of a bag it was smash what the the Tigers are great team I'm afraid of the Tigers ended they Oakland actually it had Hideki Okajima and camp to make the cut -- -- but -- but yet know the Tigers -- but before everything started I had the Tigers vs the Red Sox. And ALCS we'll see you know scherzer they had to use him out of the bullpen right so. You wonder if he would be ago if Detroit wins it won't be Verlander pitching game one it'll probably be -- -- -- Verlander pitching a I don't know I'm saying it won't be burly right -- said they'll probably be on a ball on the bells and out of Sanchez. If they look at what will -- we're getting embarrassed yet. Always liked it although from the radio listeners. Is personal high field and a and B I feel about food and who you want to win. I the American League -- the Red Sox next opponent will be on Saturday it will be wonderful the -- game Saturday the big -- Sunday at Fenway. That's right dead Tuesday Wednesday there will be much jubilation of the land and people are excited -- should be a very very. Lovable. A ball club I've been tweeting my ass off and I am pleased nephew my asked to read these problems my fingers bleed to knowledge decorum yoga. You know before the show during I'm sure bring up the as you need to do on occasion now -- -- probably back in that -- -- -- sells wine drinking that there quietly by himself leaping in you know it's gonna be terrified for him as effective Fernando Rodney drank it all before the game answers not to be able to get to have been -- -- ass -- Ask pat Rodney yeah are number 61777. Ninths seven. 937. Excuse me we don't know where you're what you're doing why you're there we'd love to hear from NC which your mood is all about right now. As we -- -- into the wee small hours of the points of to a camera -- that's correct that's what the schedules that I follow the schedule. Stephen Connecticut would triple checked you when you first on this very very short bites at Boston -- -- jubilee. They -- so bloody what he got. What I like I'm glad that nomadic mouth shut his mouth than not these that are out there at that ball. You can sharp his fat trap is now have a job to do -- for now it -- the pressure and I -- -- almost -- the until next year. Well no I mean look at he Joseph Maddon and all I like come here's the thing about his team and let's just. Let's let's call what it is so. He's got a good pitching staff and a crap -- bunch of hitters on the team. He was saddled with a team that couldn't hear it yet again only one run tonight and it. 13 at the line up against a Red Sox full I don't. -- -- You know solid and -- it's -- -- to kid the kid will Myers let him down big time didn't produce squawk that it will be. Yeah you know what he's you know be better and he'll be better coming up. And this year. I'm sure he will let him. -- grammys an absolute star though David Price that we got up. -- hope Beijing we can take it to warm now seven games maybe. We're going all the way. Are right now. You know they -- Lawrence I was. Whether it's or score the runs tonight were almost reminiscent of how the rays score they were -- scratch scratch again bought a biting and clawing you know one of the wild pitches and stolen -- This was very -- but you know what can you say some of the song. We by the way we flipped over on the feet. You don't know how -- you know -- is Slaton and what do we have that song because I like to play a few bars. Of the song that I think we should devote to. Maybe one of the guys that made the most difference. In in this year's Red Sox team as a as an unexpected. Guy you know I tell you played at Drake signed -- -- It clubhouse. And it. From the bottom and just play a couple bars others this is Drake is in his -- like these phone lines right -- US does that we're gonna get to every single one of these phone calls right now because. But I just want to hear the zone he he closes out again tonight. As anybody that criticized last -- and jerk. Bag yeah -- Yeah. -- -- I just needed dose of that -- and missed. When on the radio here on W yeah I met him making a -- I feel pretty good actually for his that are haven't drank anything. I think David Price is still warming up but the camera back on the bullpen I think he's still warming up there's a light. -- win the -- played her Herman Munster. -- -- -- -- got to give the front office credit for the swan and they pulled up to trade. And then they've used that money to buy the right players. Everybody made fun of victory notion. Are signing all pleased that guy he has won me over you don't see that and writer I've talked about this this is a classic example of a guy you don't appreciate that you watch every day when you look at the you're -- Dustin Pedroia. Really has had a tough time hitting. In this series and when you have a guy like Victor Reno. In the number two spot right to pick it up form. He takes it for the team literally by pitches literally taken it for the team -- wants it right when you look at how the assembled this -- at -- how much playoff experience on this team picked arena and I was out of it yet. Three years at that at first it was -- that in mind for this season. I can understand and I love the guys are not easy you watch him every day. And he appreciated them at war and -- how -- Farrell's moves all of them worked now use some might say you know you gonna pinch hit for salty Jiri yes. Yes the exact right move now everybody loves salty right now I'm looking -- goggles is -- is also with champagne. -- he hasn't been having good swings and by the way the right move might be defensively to put Ross in their anyways so every single thing Ferrell did. Ended up making says I think that. All of us should feel much -- For any time respect criticizing Farrell's the pitching to Longoria yesterday could over the course of the year he's been like 99% correct in every move. We think Longoria ended up two for thirteen right around it -- it -- They handled them and they really handled. On the grenade then 154 -- in the you know western -- got to give credit to to the Tampa Bay Rays for -- in this playoff picture as long as he did with no real hitters Willie Warren. And with -- all the travel and all the elimination games they did a hell of a job I get a tip my cap to them are you have a cap -- if I have -- on I don't know there. Because there are tough little ball club their Matt. Yeah I I think really when you look at the next two opponents either one. Oakland or Detroit bullpen pitching. Both have good bullpen though of course it's really -- Detroit does memorable don't know -- a bullpen right they get tremendous start cause death it is starting step their front four really. They've Matt thanks for the call appreciated -- in Woburn go ahead Doug. They -- they don't I -- you know I think we typically would tie the title of the world the last guy in the room and I know in the media to birth to a pitching staff. -- it to win game like that and he he's hoping they gonna hit. He panicked yeah well not I I don't blame him I don't blame him -- who. Alex in the way that to -- he was going he was forced to -- him he -- -- regularly go on the because when you go that early you commit yourself to using nine pitchers if you're always second inning right I mean you know down one plus throw it to him. What. It came. No well I had no dog fight -- the thirteenth of fourteen and out the first two games he needs he needed better out of rice and more that that's where was also it when it relates to tonight's game Doug he panic for one reason one reason only. Not because in a normal situation to let that guy may be trying to work out of an early -- to -- -- -- he wanted to get behind at all because he does -- -- can't hit. Dario is better than anybody that they can't come back from a -- three run -- -- again. You put James Gordon -- would we keep sort of sort of -- and I -- what. You know you're in trouble. Yeah -- -- he's been there all season look at that lineup I don't think that it actually. Tampa Bay staff pitched pretty well tonight on a look at how the Red Sox scored their Ronnie did they always -- hammer the ball well it's not about to happen it's. Somebody -- -- came victory you know look if you're gonna hand over the plate like yep we put them -- -- announce he's. In doing that puts a body out and have and I love it done he's won big bruises for sure will he he's been whacked by about twenty pitches since the second since he started writing. Reach it would quickly flipped -- -- ready Israelis think about it right hand how many different that the hamstring to back. The thumb -- is just the entire body basically is he's in the trainers -- an ice after every single game and people around Pedroia. He's deal with a neck injury as well -- would the -- other elements that after that collision with drew last night that's what caused it yet while. As a good -- -- -- shortstop is the collision injury lessen the impact Steve's and rock for the Red Sox -- -- You rolled. To what is that the road to not. What is the roads the -- is -- -- the road the road to read shed. The Josh baker and Maria and I'm not that. -- that he. The you know it's great it's it's -- in jubilation. For arts. And you know you guys are -- look at them -- they had a tough road to all. They did they edit what they had to go through to get to where they get -- tonight. But you know I don't feel sort -- once -- bit. Guys that guys this quick. Yes did it feel like I'm getting the ball much and I can't spend any time of these conversations to the original conversation. You just had to carry ticket thing I'm going to the Colorado -- Or a player and player of the game would you do it dips and -- Didn't block twice and scored twice. He scored the go ahead yeah yeah I did you all right -- -- quite correct yeah. -- gonna make him play of the game. -- slow and whatnot I don't come irony game or will always that then I'm guilty it's awkward save player of the game -- -- -- he would do not. It was open. I hit the but the thing is that there weren't like look the Ellsbury when he hit the series ninth and it was 96 on -- and given it to the is that ever -- -- tonight he got in the in the ball public the bullpen sure there was there's one Hitler is worried about the -- always as well Perez Lowe was outstanding to us about you mentioned Breslow and blow out of the world that I was. He was paint the outside corner it is almost like the expanded about six inches to the outside of the gets a rating hitters hit it in favor of him because -- was so right there with a bad de -- a lot of good night behind the plate but the pinpoint control for -- I wasn't -- and what movement. Him or aren't even desirable that got Breslow he's Smart obviously you know you or maybe he's like wickets he's -- smack. Are you guys in this locker room stuff what -- -- -- I mean can -- -- yes yes and what not. That kind of cool it is -- we don't have we have the sound that we're doing a radio show I'm not of course post we're doing radioed up to me it is a little bit you get me away Mario -- Thank you thank you. He around the way it is good -- goodness im happy was -- in Florida. Do you eat my -- You know I'll give all credit he did a great start Mitch at that. Told -- this is the guy that calls after every game killing Farrell now yet. I mean you can but you can that are putting all that are. Out there and Napoli. Got a lot of ability -- at first base. He played a much first base gave his only one thing anyone with a brain is gonna see you when you -- like dad and that is why we went to F with something it when it's not broken. -- only had a horrible theory that the product in dessert you can argue that night game but blocked because. Lol what a wild pitches on one game one will work. When it went okay. What is my diet is that -- lose three out of four games that was pretty good pretty cooperative of them at -- but I have been opulent. I met at the at least -- -- -- outlook there is OK at the plate. On the on the -- all of our wild it. It doesn't matter it. Does -- matter to me or shouldn't matter to you they won three out of four it's over its first home games were so different than it was nineteen runs combined -- the first two games for the ready and try to pointing fingers at somebody when the Red Sox just won three out of four. I'm in a heartbeat away at it like to go -- a hypocrite and. What you know so here's to do that if you're happy when you wind you just say happy when they win and it's you lose you beyond happy. Complete -- Okay that they don't lose that's the prom that I was Johnny -- I don't lose that that Red Sox to not lose I'm not even looking up. Jonny Gomes has not played first base at all this season the Red Sox I'm ready mature that's because it was a stupid idea -- the only hit. Not much has played first carp has played per monopoly yet strips and Dorsey not gonna happen because that's a dumb -- idea you know it's. Playing first base I don't they guy has a tough time playing the outfield and Watford look at where the ALCS you know there was you know a guy from Florida had a great idea. Let's put Jonny Gomes. At. First -- We might win -- games. Mike's work and they do need Napoli disturbing and they do it and where you might. And Karim no no no no I'm not saying that say they need him to death editing and they're gonna need -- -- -- Mike. Might say your work when you do for a living network in his late beer or I thought I was the only -- that works his -- are way up high writer yet. I don't at any point. For the past coming years. That guys like -- -- get my point yes you know this -- mention on the post game. Its lineup doesn't have a weakness. Of the bottom three guys like. Out of the rallies and I -- a little more solid Napoli are I think these guys. Are are having a bad game other guys picked them up doesn't -- does wind up. It -- the different hero every night you looked to be construed as is -- -- -- every night you don't have to just -- -- but -- -- Marcus. And that's right on -- -- let's look at the Red Sox and -- of the forty years. Forty I steals in a row -- I didn't throw. I'm happy finally ended. Nominee speed speed -- -- run that was a run and hit it just would have gotten us into. Right. -- look a lot trying out any kind besides Dave Roberts famous steal that this team is just speed speed the -- had the ball. Or they complain. You know what's great about this Mike -- that with the Red Sox tendency to be good at stealing the this year. They're beloved in Oakland and Detroit were everybody steals everything. -- -- -- But it is also it's not a vacation. The bench Arrington and all the fun out there that -- have to -- you guys. And play up experienced guys and everybody laughed at these three year at 39 million dollar contract what do they think now. These guys -- Walt -- the guys and date they all to each other up every game and we'll go all the way guys are good night thank you. You're right there -- more characters on this team John you right now that a Disney parade. Honest again this it is a very very lovable bunch yet is starting with who week. You know a factor -- a unity if he'd finally give up a home run and every Spitzer about argue our. It was first already give up in 99 UK are. Jones yes. I mean OK I guess we can forgive you. -- -- -- You know and in the -- you know it gets contract he comes back in his years like. After the Achilles that I don't think that's talked about it now -- the wrong side while you're gonna need him to produce one year deal please get the security of a two you'd want what are your team member how much. You almost forget he missed. Portion of the season to begin to he's has he reached did you reach base like. Eight times in a row in this in this series and obviously the best starting -- with a already hit yeah via that's right at the game at Fenway rate through what they walk him walk and stayed away from home. And it eventually. Led to a some Red Sox scoring and by the way. But he here and every single penny that he had his contract especially if you consider. What Mark Teixeira got paid this year and how -- how little he played. We're gonna get back to all the phone calls yeah I see all on hold and we're gonna get he won't I promise. On this program -- this quick break of the Red Sox review program would John Dell call writer and -- he had -- It's the pitch and play your best striker out of my changeup away to retire the side wrecked Brad -- on his -- The last -- trumbull Connecticut history and all four -- in his -- and we don't in the eighth inning the Red Sox -- the rays want. AE and a and an. Oh victory -- commuted to a we had text messages Ryder. Victor -- don't nickname is Maui while week as a Hawaiian reference. -- a lot nicknames Hawaiian punch. He's unbelievably great the back lion Hawaiian and which he's been called since his days with the Phillies. Texas says price looks like -- -- Josh. A Breslow or Josh Connecticut Breslow MVP. It that was in reference or tiger of -- player in the game and I'm sorry Rodney. Through his victory and that's why coach you went up and you know glorious group Tampa. I heard that the people in Tampa where they -- doing right now some of going to be noted dog as a light blue haired bats. The people in and around to -- they don't have that many actual stand guard him breakfast right now. And to go to sleep at 9 AM. This text area of misery known as positive baseball Sosa -- -- -- reflect six point 77797937. Josh and wave his design. The road to redemption. Sure oh -- good morning gentlemen how are we how we judge -- very well a big market I wanted to call and just. Yeah and it voter meant though the -- that bat. He had nine he beat down on that count me in the seventh inning where he -- telmex Powell worked the count full. He draws a walk yeah. All right -- now he's on first base yes L. -- very basic he had the where we're on the speed take her -- -- -- third in that position -- he did. Was run on third and yet our color. -- bitching about scoring on a wild -- is looking at if you want to root for a baseball team a potent scorer -- -- you're rooting for the wrong team you know what I mean I mean to -- Any and -- game like this it's baseball Josh people score on wild pitch limit on third especially when. You know it's out bats weren't exactly booming that I plus it was terrorism but he's right it is a big -- gap that by the young men and is a good DC and you know -- -- adage that keep around to play our enables him more than. No -- I think bit. Now that he he had that two walks which ended up being two runs on the board you know -- got a little bit more confident now. Moving ahead -- make the red the Red Sox lineup even that more potent have an at bat that can come in and hit lefties because you know the pitchers struggle to hit the left hand pitching all year. I I don't forward. Yeah but I'm not sure if you see at a -- still I still think he's Dixon drew quite a bit -- you know his defense he will because they they considered to be very very steady and capable shortstop and he has he's a pro over the years at shores -- Bradford on TV -- current government Jones. But there's -- thing to hold on Josh you know here's what it is about Ferrell and these all these guys. Is that he has a compliment of players that he can weave in and out of the situation as the situation calls for or rises. And it all works out very well why because these are guys who understand their roles were professionals about it who treat each role is a very important function on this team. There has to think it exactly the right way but you have to think -- Witten issue Beers or assure him. They're lined up -- Bears at twelve red sized guy have you ever -- appears yes as you get so draw. What -- you shoot a beer -- -- is so -- Mitchell wants all the alcohol gets in these blitzes and the same time. And when you -- I've won in New Year's -- I shot some of those little -- cans but tandem of Thomas broke -- -- believe -- like Roger wins but diesels do enough I don't wanna. You gotta love what Brett loaded and also you know peavy had a tough time at the plate in this series. But in the top of the ninth inning with a runner up would -- on third base he did exactly what he needed to do you popped up on to right field to get that run across the. Yeah well that's why I mean that's -- it's a team helping each other up -- hit by the way he had some key hits and in the in the Fenway series of -- first two games series when he hit off the wall late in the game. Two games who you know that was key to so thanks Justin calls -- Dan and behave -- Holiday you know a big guys to do. ALCS and I went to make a note about the type -- game he watched -- night. Until could be Gaudio yet but not only that -- -- the type game we played it was a pitcher's -- that game would fit into the kind of game we're gonna have to win. Going forward. You diseases that both teams you might face -- says have good pitchers -- right and I hope I have we seen this or sixteen win and so many different ways this year or you are everywhere wouldn't -- what do you wanna see from because he neck stand. I would like to see the Oakland -- okay why I am I'm I'm Barry. Well the only true. I think they that we -- -- can't deviate but if you look at it with Tigers. The tiger I mean -- stacked obviously yeah at the pitcher out there. Yeah well and they're hitting can be very formidable two I don't know -- they won this but it down relative down year for Prince Fielder. And Cabrera is not a 100% right now he's not blasting the ball like -- -- played on one leg yeah every you know or is aussies on to play a series not have it really much to do with the outcome. You know our fans and Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta today and right. Moon -- face and -- back after his steroid doses and yep broke the with a more high face. Agree that would -- the tiger game I thought Cabrera can appeal to our ball club and over to -- -- he's right these guys in the -- now. Yeah well I think. That's the only reason you with a Triple Crown again was to use -- in the cesium all kinds of problems there. Will absolutely. I want to cut 11 about being here I got the listing all week and actually toward the end of the regular season. You're called on and about the trade so they don't like it here and all the things you know like. I don't -- got frustrated all the rebels say the guy -- true yeah. And I pitched great tonight and thank you to answer the call you know this is -- is good the radio station is very very exuberant about it is obviously because we are the Red Sox station. Have been for years always will be as this is a very very good thing for all of us here but it's also a legitimate fan involvement. Episode this year with a recession because. As people will watch this team the guys like Victor Reno. And who -- You fall in love with the the personality of this team and it it does have its own distinct personality. And there are no capable guys on this team that's the most important thing. About what they're doing and how it feels no note no question about it up and down the roster you look at who is usually root for guys you care about it there's so many news stories he used mentioned to a you know so many new stories on this team and familiar one good stories yep -- too old and Jeremy. -- Until that it doesn't get any better in this you know that's as well Graham. Because you know after we go through last season and sit through the loyalists that moron. Didn't get any better -- team come back and the dark Specter really showed what it played against so. I couldn't be more -- the Falcons and I am I you know are maybe who you gonna play next early don't yeah I you don't need. It builds to a very nice first of all I think Oakland and Detroit are both very formidable. -- excellent baseball teams. Who have gotten you know a lot of winning -- last couple seasons themselves in their own way. One of them with some star star -- team I mean a pitching staff from Detroit -- brutal unity with the young guys. Sonny gray to Red Sox cast offs and all the guys like Redick. Coco Crisp and they were -- Christmas season 42 home runs this year -- resembled that of his vocal with 22 Saturday at a big squandered a big. That bases loaded. Nobody out they can't score -- -- created a gym and -- and bounced back -- about a million but this is very very fun baseball this year's been great and I'm really looking forward what happens next start on Thursday with the the the -- in the Tigers and by the way. I love the Pirates. And if they've I want them to beat the Dodgers I want that to be next so be Pirates Red Sox as I predicted right divisional deal -- I care about wife is being right now I would mind. You either one and yeah I know that at Dodgers and all those story lines -- it was a million element it's a really fun colorful. Playoffs. Episode it's about to begin as we go to the ALCS starting Saturday. And all the action right here on the W realized it was an outward joy without sugar beat two weekends ago you know. You know and I admit in Europe that rumble seat again crumbles he was saying Joseph without you making noise -- -- -- the -- -- get one at -- I'm not. -- real quick. If I don't want to see even through every -- -- in the let the again this year -- I really think now it's gonna happen right now I I look at how. Happened because. And we will -- watch Earl. The girl's credit be loyal to players. And that same way that and yeah it and I think that a lot of the reason why these kind -- will do anything form but. How important was ticket broker a reason that things are going predicting that take those. Well he yeah he's one of the reasons I give bloggers credit endless patience Rivers -- you're -- you're sitting there telling -- that no one else could have drawn a walk in nets. Are extremely important are out it was great and you know what it is is a normal yet but he bar and it takes whatever that because you know what it's the newness of it all and it's also referenced dale. He gets killed because of his last name. Drew -- tiger David heroic but drizzle -- -- once he's -- he's had an excellent season I can understand yet and I can understand the move to go to -- against the tough lefty and I agree with that but. Pilots and it drew has had a very good seat he's had a good season and may be better than most people expected in spots and he's got an eight triples on nine I think Carey like them for that. But he has been streaky and yet particularly streaky against left in to -- no question but and -- with the glove he's been so steady with -- yes he has Nixon Flagstaff. Arizona for God's sake. Another arm you know I did through Flagstaff Arizona -- and I have been through Winslow Arizona to. You know I can't -- that one and then all of a sudden I'm here college. Did you know affect what's Iowa state of the corner in Winslow Arizona had seven women on my mind. I -- -- -- I was just trying to break the record the Eagles had a what are you got nick. Our wanna play. You guys have -- so. I was out diligent about all the sports talk them on the side of that Donald W yeah I out right away at the leg in. Yeah and down Christmas ball.
