Dennis and Callahan we were the only -- Felt -- good -- the chancellor or certainly your goals aren't we now live from the life hopefully everybody else to do what we saw back to go to work. Which time tennis but not many of those guys great we realized here's some kind of I'm rooting for individuals that I and I really liked the way they seem incredibly has come together you know with -- 60% 70% different guys it seems to be the new way of doing things these days. We're pretty much heard about it. Gerry Callahan. Sort of kind of possible -- last five weeks ago. Very fair right. Bring along. Sports Radio WB. Spent a lot of time thinking about this yesterday and last night and I'm trying to come up -- What hasn't. Lining up perfectly. For the Boston restaurant good question and the answer to that question is not much no not much is not letting it -- ask the question yesterday what. With that weakness you know where's the hole right -- right. And I we had we didn't answer no we are really come up and answer yeah -- kind of -- like we usually do on to the rest of the day. And then I couldn't do it either I have not heard anyone come up with something that in this and other -- favorites what concerns you or what worries you what keeps you up yet. Yeah just in terms of spending this day between you know this moment it's 60358. And whenever this thing ends tonight and open. What is -- after the Red Sox properly not much they easily wrapped up raids in four games Tuesday. They can relax and prepare at home at Fenway sleep in their own beds. Barrel has complete flexibility or is starting rotation do whatever he wants to do. The a's and tigers square off in a death match in Oakland tonight. Chances are the starters and relievers could be taxed in that game you know it's a high leverage situation in -- you did -- The winner. -- cross country to -- the Red Sox Saturday. I guess the only little tiny tiny little bump in the road it's it's a pebble on the road. Until this game and tonight the Red Sox won't know concentrate advance scouting report what to do to that's that's that's -- there's. Even an injury that has you concerned me when you look at usually the notebook news in the newspapers and this stuff for what the questions in the Crisco is about an injury Reggie come or long ones drop element I hit it exactly yeah. Give us an update yet we get that we get that sound of Belichick is this all just -- got to get out of that hole Q today once again he's asked about how close grunt is -- always look at practice. And we'll get to -- but. Off the top you have -- -- I think at least -- -- he got four days' rest at that time it is time he looked really good Jerry Lewis hall he's really in the clubhouse after the game. Today. And and gloat assume -- take a bow. Usually we get the the trolls -- Larry comes on this piece I -- them and ask him you know oil -- -- Any bodies in his basement you know millions of anyone. Imprisoned is based company's easy it is evil they're winning -- get the sense of fans. Some blow scroll but it's great but I mean he's you know half the level but you know what I mean is that he'll embrace him what's the first thought it would it would get -- the first of people that we sailor asked why I had Bobby. Valentine and -- gets blamed for that and we will hear from Bobby ultimately ultimately from way it's such a lie there is a warrior you know basic. Sheer glass half. Yet -- kind of guy yeah. -- what keeps him up. You know there's enough. There's nothing about this -- -- muscles of the vagaries of baseball baseball flick you know. It's like in the movies -- -- well moving hangover two when they say you know where can be Bangkok chasm. You know just as nebulous thing Bangkok hasn't. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- No Joseph Joseph Maddon wanted to make one thing clear that Tampa Bay Rays played to their potential. Prosecuting I mean again -- we like -- right we'd like yeah like -- we played to our potential. Like 179. With runners on base that mean you you didn't plate did it will Mayer split it was apparent -- -- I would -- -- Bruce paid the price -- the David and excuse that is we played to our potential in other words we suck what. This little trade that could do we we we only have a sixty million dollar payroll you know our. A clean up hitters achieving -- -- we supposed to do against the mighty Red Sox. To have that surround Augusta G. What you look for that I'll tell you the Red Sox out score the race 25 to twelve. Soft bed at 300 with runners in scoring position. Tampa Bay about it with runners in scoring prescriptions from the Sox stole six bases to the rays won and I think the yum. Eight -- the rays did not draw a single walk -- first time since. 19271. Team market -- to go to more -- yet here. Meant that I output it's in their so it is in -- -- 46. Someone is they announced that says some in -- you don't out of the top you're not denying I read that's not the foot last time. Was game five of the 2011. ALC a call Rangers Rangers walked eight times the tigers walked not a member of that Leo but again Joe's -- -- pump his own -- tires but well self to do you think they played to their potential they wanted ID. -- -- -- They put their potential that would be but the semi five point and that's what you saw that's what I guess if you wanted to you could say. You know graduating your face in the big boys here this yours it's not gonna be Tampa Oakland's better. Detroit better it's going to be tougher series of questions I guess look at this vehicle for you right now a new commitment and bring our club trying to when he does attract -- I said that yesterday and and you looked at me elect. Number Tampa of their four phases stages of post season is by Far East record. In Maine I was wrong about the toughest would be. The regular season winning 97 winning the division winning best record and home meanest toughest thing you have the duke in the second toughest to -- -- cius. And the third would be the world's leaders in the fourth would be there's only -- years against the -- -- Rugs. But the good thing is the potential Joseph -- children are happy that's the other thing that's -- we put up to our potential and my children up matters are I mean really care for his happy with. I care if the -- away it's Red Sox wind picking from Russia and it works that is so condescending. Then maybe more important things like making sure that your children. When they -- their happy you know so there's different ways to look at this whole thing. I mean media members should smacked in the face like please don't insult to request -- to question do you think anyone doesn't care -- they -- have secondly. How do you make sure your kids happy. Todd how do you do well there's a fine line between discipline and granting every single wish they have -- is an issue war your kids or have. Did do that minute and all the answers I tried as hard as I can you'll smack them. No I don't little -- I don't do that now what you got you can CC. People spoiled kids that's not right it's not to making sure their penalty but some people think that's what do you placate them. We have watched TV. Probable soda and candy you know did what they're happy event. And that's it's not real absence brief happy misses in the public subsidy opera lifetime of opium and able supposed. To temporarily how I. -- diabetic -- Back. I guess you want them to. He has successful. You want to be well adjusted one of the motivated do you make sure they're happy -- noise it's only possible to Russia I know it is possible to make sure -- -- then of course there's a million -- -- -- moral question jail to help you mean that the penis that. You trying to answer he would he tried enlightened deal which could be that the child psychologist. Yeah the option do you what what is the key to making your -- -- what would you say great -- you say that's what much better than what what that would that would put the hook in his mouth and it's secure what do you think Joseph would be the key to making kids happy he could not not answer that would be much better in the -- which probably it was in the seventh inning -- is how do you think. It would bring him right here there. Was some Monday in baseball question. Do picture. Question Ali is the K Elliott says super Joseph -- Did you your kids happy when it's probably -- why did -- -- kids. Avarice and -- that is that it isn't -- -- make sure I'll kick people out of jail. And he brought the kid -- Into the organization it was like assistant strength coach and a team our game everything. In the podium and he tried at training K tried -- the -- right right I mean you missed practice noted Eric. He died doing what he let us -- -- -- activists. Today and obviously we failed funding weakness in this for its element we fail we just there's no glaring weakness there's no glee that sounds so home. How when and -- doesn't it I would just the only thing I would say they give -- credit for making just -- game four is. A big spot. Ferrell kinda -- old game -- did not do a great job I wonder if it had been Longoria underneath yet fixed it it. He -- After the fact within the game when he was on he made some bad decisions. Maybe that's a Beacon Hill Prince Fielder comes to the plate right to also first bowl walk him pitch to him. -- be more inclined to walk if he went wow yeah he defended with salt and now we defended the decision two pitch to Longoria and he's obviously -- all the stats and all the mattress and you know here's why we yeah we we it's too long ago. Longoria up to that point what was the one car. So it's not like you'll Longoria and an -- driven through ball little ball park which is you know -- 600 during the series we handled it very well. As we had trouble martial arts support again I go back to the putting clay with -- back in the corner where he's -- he's fortunate troll bridge. On the plate -- haven't been able to get a got to change. You know that that's that's what -- actually doing great and I think that you know the rate -- one gain entry. But the game of baseball one that right because all the things that came out of a debate on all sides which. Which way you want should've -- decisions -- gone one way or the other and that's the beauty of the game. Baseball Gandhi and that's based that's that's it that's what happened your two things in my mind can have a baseball gets some words it's the vagaries of baseball -- But -- fall in line drugs are caught up Bonser -- the bag at first base like you did last night and the other thing news. The pressure on the pressure yeah we we sought to get to Tampa but clearly yeah we saw. It get the Pittsburgh you could see tonight someone's got to buckle under the impression LE RD did. -- in the in in game six. -- Oakland is home which helps. And I do think Oakland while in the week that the numbers unbelievable that one of eleven and clinching game this. Potential clinching games under Billy -- and in five of them had a lead and blew it. But their home and they do have some. Kind of young underdog scrappy guys are the underdog you know not all of them but some of them are younger young scrappy underdogs who don't know any better I don't know what happened -- here to 2000 they don't hear about five or six or a Jeter in the lip and that's absolutely centigrade. Who do you worry about that right but but you'll see some guys we know some guys will not be -- handled this immense pressure of another. A clinching game. And the question -- which guys I mean Detroit guys are Oakland guys Berlin or cynical probably right that it's more likely Oakland guys who feel the pressure even other home. Detroit's won a World Series but. Red Sox could have that mean we think they handled the pressure quite well with Germany people on the Red Sox that would fall of that cut category he's unhappy Bogart's finds himself a spot or middle middle finds himself a spot. Here's -- talk about that subject. And it's not it's not a game and seasons online you know this whole season no way battle -- -- places seeing it comes on one game. You know and investing minds so you can't treat -- like -- -- notes you know it's a little bit different there's there's more to it. So we Verlander the great Verlander says this is not just another game. Adam Wainwright I think set after the game last night he has never been so nervous in his life I mean this is that this is a death match and lose you go home. We -- adventure -- a Boston. It's also a high leverage situation is awesome it's the best that sports has offered you know elimination game pressure on. Cameron can look I'm on like football you can look at -- -- I'm males and see if there. These are shaken -- you could literally see if they're they're shaken and nervous. Forecast in Detroit have been there more grass and toward one. Oakland hasn't won but you know due to look at the new name Brandon Moss is he thanked him. You know among Oakland we're supposed to -- is like a looser team you know watching that much to -- -- -- universal but don't they seem like a looser yeah. I took the idol I don't sense that they gonna melt and I just I mean I don't get early games they -- 9696. To I mean that's almost 97. And 97 where we were treating and around here like on the most missed and it is and they want more last year clearly but six games for that too spunky underdogs pretty impressive gathering to big advantage in the big thing that jumps -- obviously so local wins tonight but -- event so I can select say how does it work so -- -- on the plane. They fly back yep they have. Drink heavily right -- big celebrate the military's -- Friday they're gonna get in here what time hung over -- -- will be. The song up right rides are going to be you know what that's like screwed the whole next hole today is screwed your hung over -- honestly your pitching situation is well. You know you know assume it's a nine inning game -- and everything's okay -- pitching is -- also because you know pretzel Portugal and no matter what -- alone is larger game one starter okay in the Red Sox are fully lined up ms. Farrell said yesterday gonna start in almost confirming to start Lester in game one -- -- can go any way they were absolutely the rest of the series which is what they've been able to do since the playoffs. Huge. The Red -- that much buried baseball team to -- obviously. They won 96 games. But this advantage enormous they are -- are we nuts it's taking advantage are we not seeing the home field advantage winning 97 vs ninety -- so that was one more -- wins one more Sox or get on a plane flight somewhere and they don't even know where the goal at that moment. That is true that is a huge advantage and if you if you like trying to motivate bikini team next year in the regular season down the stretch -- what happened -- exactly you would have to be. -- have to have the plane like revved up ready ago what plants like LA did LA Lewis. Satan on the plane like like those Israeli fighter pilots yes you know Israeli fighter pilots there's one in the plane 24 miles a day. Just to save election and Americans -- good you have to go to the prep all in their their helmets on there you know there goggles are on. They're ready to go -- the you know they get nuked by Iran. These guys are going to be in the air like ten seconds Smart that's the way the duchess were ready and Lewis right. What -- their Red Sox fly out to Oakland this for the case would be. Tomorrow first thing. If fall for your way around yes it would then we're probably than I guess so and men may not go through the regular 89 and the more Republican planet so that they would be over. Detroit. Women on circle around there are hovering holding pattern over Detroit and if Detroit wins -- and -- that's an Oakland wins keep going west I don't have a different say I -- coincidentally that's with the dot com chip I was products and our three guys who -- like that's me you would -- yeah. -- -- This only so much room on the heat on and to come gulfstream where a guy you know who Alex outcomes of salt can hole -- -- Is edit in particular shows portable produces. Well it's true emotional about a law is on the fund walk don't walk what about rob and Alex's. Assistants that have federal. It took the president the vice president and give -- -- player out -- without losing entire dot cruel and wonder why don't they have they have like people right next -- of them of course holes that puts the executives from the dot com the website to point -- -- that that I got appeals to grapes.
