Foxsports.com. And MLB on fox for instance Rosenthal joins us on the AT&T hotline good morning Jeff how are you. Good morning I wonder if you took offense -- David prices attack on nerds just off the top of my -- year. Well I wrote about it here today yes I know I would say that more accurate way to put it would be that I took my -- my sentence at least yes I. It really a great. And anybody can be attended by -- comment by. Considering that in -- in here. Is all -- both -- supposedly in my honor I was surprised acutely still. It in the well let's just all -- -- what's the bow tie this weekend we'll skip that the way. Well actually -- we don't know if this is the contest for the playoffs and and to date. Where people vote basically the charities that over present during the ALCS and World Series so I don't know exactly would -- I am wearing it. Woolsey. In the -- that are operated out of. I was so glad that he of the you do mister chair because before that I thought you remember in the nation of Islam -- -- -- that took it. That's what it certainly have to remind people -- could not get. And -- that -- more often get a wouldn't trinity Christian leader. Your. Hey what do you like that what do you like tonight -- let's get this on the record Oakland Detroit give us your pick. It's really hard to edit an early and there. Gained the week it's last in late -- the last month or so. He looks like he's backed himself now. -- -- home they've got a -- in the mountains re not in really good but. I will we ran last night and I'm the only throwing under and right. Let me ask you for the Red Sox fan's perspective or the Red Sox perspective who should they hope wins who's the better matchup for the Red Sox. That's a big question some people say it will be open because the direction that don't handle a pitching as well as. More less strong pitching but. He actually matters -- OK a lot. The Red -- in their last series record that search friendly network fox sports what that was as strong performance. If you want from your team and I console impressed with the way they play that can really all year but can there at all to order a layup they looked stress is never. I looked. And on my church corner of that are -- on the way. And in my view the target favored either way. But before meaning teams left -- candidacy after tonight if you had to pick one team to win the World Series and I'm guessing you don't the Red Sox. I don't know -- go that -- this let's see help and actually played out and the cardinals and Dodgers are both strong and threats in different ways. This -- internationally and got. You've got two teams that. Are built quite differently have quite different -- about them but. Or probably even that haven't been in large part due to the emergence of walk. -- -- -- As hot -- he is then. I would like to the doctrine be -- -- and five but now I'm not sure and when we really -- and see how the cardinals figure out. Whether they can how to handle personal and Greinke but they've got the near equivalent weapons in read write and talk. You know if Oakland or Detroit whoever advances. They can they almost Elwood to I'd steroid guy in on him when you think about it Cologne. And overall -- didn't get suspended this time the Perreault the did last year that the world champs did not welcome the Jews are back they said no thank you we're okay we're gonna without you we don't need you. Was not a -- consideration on either Detroit or Oakland -- I guess to be tougher for Oakland as we get bounced the style although he was implicated but. Detroit welcome brought them back and there are they're not here right now on the brink of the ALCS without him. What better question would be open at Texas Tech sentinel and crews. In situations crawl -- this year. Now. What is different about -- and crews. There and a prayer is that those two guys were pillars on thirteen main street of their club. Popular in the club out Nokia Q claw have been created addiction. I traded issue. And night I would never more so. He hadn't established disdain credibility. With his own -- outs. Came. Character and don't look -- that those -- do you do to go to the Q well liked respected figures so. -- open there back and frankly I think the problem. They have no problem with it because they serve. -- he would admit to what they he would. But this medicine and now. They're at the end of the matter and so they're back so. Yet it is that we're gonna immoral about this and that's something it liked to it attitude about. Be aware that Euro came to be a halt to it anymore. Wow not -- and Red Sox -- goes oh we. Kept my stating the obvious what I say the network would prefer the Sox in the tigers and then the Sox in the Dodgers is that the dream match up. I think you are correct yeah you know the only thing else today. And that the network in terms of how they think to kick it lies because I don't see quite the same then we always know the numbers what they're thinking. But Oakland on television. Is not bad either because the crowd is crazy. You get the West Coast to some degree. In. I can imagine that will be bad a little I don't know that bought in Detroit is that president Boston Oakland I do know that bought the Los Angeles it. -- -- Did you call it. Do you call your line of thinking -- back in March and April as you were examining the retooling the reconstruction of the Red Sox team. That brought in drew and Napoli in victory in one Gomes and you'll Horrow what what did you think about what bends approach was in trying to fix what was broken. I can remember what I saw and what I thought was that to plug the hole but none of the guys that they got was a good. And it turned out that virtually all of them performed at a higher level here. Maybe -- that extreme end of their performance. Are forward and call it and beyond that of course the -- has been so good but let's put down the line. Who are meeting right between the -- it. I would think victory -- is completely you know they thought they had the year last year -- he was the biggest risk. He looked like he -- decline in here late actually and well on all sides of the ball they're cute guy that. -- screw you of course but. Pretty good brought out concussions often OKMR. About what they expected. So. I didn't think they're gonna get enough performance out of these guys -- baseball performance. But they had and it worked out incredibly well. On field performance aside again back to march and April. Did you roll your eyes when you heard this monster about good guys and clubhouse chemistry and sort of opening the windows letting the fresh air in that room. Only to an extent that rolled my eyes and those things in my view are important more important than -- metric people often given credit for but. -- that they -- -- people are correct is if you don't get the performance and that matters so. They not perform at this level and it's a quality team. Then all of that and tangible book goes away. What -- impressive outfit and what you can picture. He's the self policing that goes on within that club. -- -- Guy played -- right way. And that's it for instance the guy that -- short -- or prevent -- and take an extra base the other players are their and it looked out. And that's a great clock can you that they have it in that it had all season. And one of the things that. In watching them I really admire an eight -- little guys have not -- It to charity into the team. That the way you expect it doesn't seem to meet me outside Patton and my gosh asking me. Is one of the more likable it is it just like couple of art and likable and lectures he was unlike. If you had to predict. Years. Total money in team for Ellsbury which where you don't. -- Seattle. Six or seven times. -- you want. While so Crawford contract basically -- you know what candy -- can still as a writer he's not a TVQ because that's what answer that definitively -- you think it depends I concede either way if he keeps playing this well -- go higher. Give us the same way you say -- we know he's gone and that makes all the sense in the world what you just said but. Can you give us the same estimates and numbers for a canal. -- -- Seven or -- or yankees should be. Most days there so what's at the end of the 860. Dig at you get the sense that the Yankees have a gun to their head basically. Now. And actually and that's what it would probably -- going to be it in the the overall number is going to start -- -- Q how low -- seven partly or mobile number will be. And -- like. -- Yeah I was no way that's the bigger contract and I didn't get -- although he would. I never like that plan and that kind of commitment to me that we ought to work out but. I will say this if you want to send it right there I. Know it's extremely durable it under rated about it -- all time. And beyond that should use that his -- it's second where he is one of the most -- defenders -- -- receipt. And you can move into third and we'll be primary and eventually Iraq not on third base in -- dividends crippled whatever it. So. I can see. That. Logic in that justification arguing coming out after the yankees' most likely it is that they don't do it somebody else well. Well which is -- this question Ken Rosenthal went to general managers one does ownership look at all the deals out there and -- -- a long one multi million dollar deal that has worked out well. Weather's a router to share or CC -- -- hole -- Hamilton. And say what it's it that the the probability rate of this being good for us in the second half of this contract is next to zero when they start. Beat some sense in their own heads here. Well over the past of course total take is one bright -- -- against that and people who signed the deal when the angels signed cool animal then when the Yankees an era. They know that the back and much back in the collegiate performance. What they're hoping that the front and get this incredible talents and incredible. Return. From a World Series title in the center. Now obviously. These deals on -- that's Smart in -- the Yankees I would go. Six times thirty. Rather than 826. Funeral today present the red as higher dollar shorter shorter. Term whether that can Hafner and Albert no will be satisfied that that you know the situation and because of all the money coming and speaking for me right now because in the national television deal. You have. A greater number of king's ability to do this kind of thing never happens or not I don't know but the possibility that. Do you think. The following spot passed through the minds of somebody named Steinbrenner Levine were Cashman and that is you know what given all our problems given all our holes. You smaller age given nothing in the pipeline we're going to be mediocre with or without can -- -- vitamins spend all that money when we know we're not gonna win the World Series anytime soon the -- thought crossed their mind. I am sure partner -- but. At the same time they -- the New York Yankees. They are the operators yes network they are Tina routinely every year problems of their fans we're going to build championship caliber club. Without you know -- got 1415. It becomes that much more difficult and they know that well -- In -- pure baseball cents if you going do this correctly. Yet you probably let him go he pilot contracts. Expire or are there other players and historically and being to rebuild a different way. I just don't -- your -- -- operating like that where is David Price. That's the question to -- going somewhere most likely. At this has probably here for years. The couple -- Akron. Didn't. He didn't mind -- player that help -- everybody's going to be involved summit. And a couple there at all about. I have a hard time thinking that the trees with tree came within the division -- to see him. In an unbalanced schedule for five times a year. That's the one thing I have a harder time seeing -- it reflects made the best offer. And basically you know their parts of rights Schroeder to do it but -- -- it and doing that it that it just goes both ways. But stated -- about -- -- just for the shaken discussed I'm not saying it would. And -- not looking at Vanderbilt right in the division and minus six years that would it is a good thing. Gamble wrap it up by telling you the good news the rain gets out of here Friday Saturday and Sunday in the sixties and match up partly sunny so you'll be outside you'll be okay. Ten Rosenthal with Dennis and Callahan good talk and he can catch you down the road.
