Chris is in NY this week so he calls the boys to help preview Pats/Jets and gives his take on what will go down today at 1pm.
Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Luvollo joins the program to talk about Red Sox injuries and the MLB Replay process
Our number two Chris aligning with sports Sunday Sports Radio WEEI 6177797937. Then not all Red Sox some pretty much all Jon Lester threw the first hour lie detectors weighing in on the AT&T tax line on that will get to that just a moment. Out final round of the masters is going on a maturity people. Into getting into what is much science tiger. And without Phil as well he Mickelson showed up I think late Thursday night she flew in and Friday after energy is flied out. With Phil Mickelson. I he had a tough weekend are tough early going Richardson first round in a local guy Keegan Bradley struggled missed But there are some big games of the top the leaderboard some exciting. I young names of the Jordan's BT's twenty years old he's cash to win the masters I he'd be the youngest winner since 1979. LEB younger. Then the tiger was the first time you want it. And one of the things that really stood out to me is speaking with some people were down there this week to cover the toward talks and these young guys and it get back to tiger. The complete and water. Lack of off. Around around Tiger Woods to these guys are too young you think about twenty years old 21 years old with somebody like camera some would like walker. In somebody like Blix the Swedish guys and second right now and he's. He's like 28. You know some of these guys too young to really remember or at least have played with tiger against tiger. When he was hitting level like we never seen before the PGA tour earlier received since Jack. And they look at him now a Zagat shoot 77 on the weekends. Is that cats really contention anymore where is I mean Aaron I'm not old and your and all of you remember when. Final round tigers in the lead it was done forget about it I mean one year in the PGA YE Yang those big shots out late and ended up beating and yet that epic battle with Bob May. I nearly beat him in the PGA but it would for the most part just wasn't close he would get a lead and he was one of the best closers in the we'd seen in the sport. But it's just it's different now that's a different vibe. Around Tiger Woods and it's gone from seemingly a foregone conclusion that he would get to nineteen majors is seemingly foregone conclusion that he won't eat next year. Does play majors this year. Is give forty years old Jack won three. After he needs five Jack won three after forty to two of those were when he was forty and the masters in 986. Was kind of an out Larry's 46 years old. Tiger would be a hall of fame career from here on out five major championship all career to get in nineteen. I think it's interesting not only his fall from grace just as a player. In terms of winning majors the was in my opinion at least the best player on were last year he had five or six wins a torch to win major. But the bigger thing to me is just how some of these younger players perceive him do tiger as a contention it used to be regarded. The average stroke. The average round rather up a stroke in. In in the in the final round on Sundays when tiger was in contention real just kind of melted aged just. Folded around with a few exceptions mentioned Bob revealed in Nickels and it's good battles but. For the most part it was just tiger's world everybody else's playing for second they were on him Ernie Els just not Now is young guys just young enough to cocky enough and don't really remember that at least they didn't play through it. And they're saying how statute 75 on the weekends with what's not ID in the turn now but. I should be upon Sunday Bubba Watson very very likable guy. And I Jordan who were finding out a lot about trying to become the youngest masters winner a long time quick birds update we'll get back to the calls against 617779. 7937. Cordially NC DM IA's doing great to get the good news on him that was definitely a concern that you know DM IAA was. Out I got hit looked like in the that it from I thought it was illegal but not dirty if that makes sense I don't think there was intent to injure there. It was just one of those times you're trying to make a hockey play get the principal point contact up higher and you won it. So I thought it was an illegal hit not a dirty hit but by a help not the that you concussion translated to on the ice Thursday that part we don't know just yet. But Patrice Bergeron it sound like is fine I he missed the third period yesterday that would would have been a huge concern. I outside to go. There's not too many guys you point to and say this more important to the bees and Bergeron two way player in hockey this year. Obvious he's good according to coach Julianne and Chris Kelly looks like still day to day with that back injury so some. Relatively speaking. Minor bumps and Bruce is going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs but you know these guys especially Alec Bergeron if he could be on the ice on Thursday against the red he's going to be there. I HTT tech slide is 37937. It's like grab a few of these real quick a one Dexter says eight times over David Price let Lester walked. While you make Casey price a better pitcher at this stage of his career early younger I can cost more money. And now your bidding against everybody else you've got the cost control guy. Housing cost control we get the guided the under your control rather. The of the exclusive negotiating window with wants to stay here to guide it. As more in depth track record in the post season to sign him. And that point it's not a knock on price and gives great pitcher. But if you're looking at what you can do it even easier than that that will save you some money relative to what price can get on the open market signed last. I know detector can you imagine having Stanton in Boston did it forty plus homers easy architecture from western mass. Two words about prospects Daniel yep they can go hard the other way. I another one here says agree with you order percent top of the rotation guys talk about Lester innings a year post seasons died. Given the cash over five years five for one and should get it done. And out finally is Lester stats are comparable to average career he walked away from 244 million Lester has been better than Homer Bailey and look at the contract. That he just signed a few textures telling me the gets four clocked at. Well evening parade for a UConn for the championships I assume the men and women together out both of them winning the national title. Yes as tougher as Turkey's but happy for Kevin Ollie who now is the next. Hot coaching named to go from college to the end beauty after eight seasons. But undefeated in the NCAA tournament ally guys can say that are at six or 77797937. is in New Jersey he's up next When then. Just try to not cute bit Ali thank you and I can't believe that a low ball. Jon Lester like they don't agree that you like a side impact by one and whatever argument sake. We have been out of my. But you see a lot of contracts for your team that have gone got into the contract stratosphere and some of them have really worked out so well. But for a number like dapper Lester what he's so willing to stay. I agree I was surprised. When I saw what the number was at the end of spring training where the Red Sox know Lester broke off toxin seems like a a low ball contract terms of dollars in a low ball contract thirty years. definitely. god I G I mean lucky probably let out a little bit like that way radio reluctant I had. Yeah I mean yeah I'm with you thanks to the fall being a former yankees fans perspective. They're never shy about spending dollars. That Lester contract is makes sense and I've said this a few times. Because just getting back to this point I do think my gut still tells me they get a Don. Gut feeling they still get this contract done because I hate candidate it player just wants too much just wants to be a Boston too much. You back going to be here at the expense of taking deal it's foolish and a four year seventy to eighty million dollar contract before which. At ball way below market terms years below market terms the average annual There's no upside here it sounded like a Red Sox blown away with a give you four years but here's point six million a year. Which is probably more than you gonna get I guarantee each and every year on the open market that it could at least. I still think Lester would walk away from crystal he'd say no. But I could look at that is saying the Red Sox in good faith effort to try to. Do with last year what they've done with other guys which is over pay an average annual dollars but try to take that discounted terms of the number years seventy. I can't say that. I can't see it as they came under years came under dollars 6177797937. Bill isn't busted up next they've built. They would subject. who visual. You know what about. You guys keep in the world. Could together okay. guys they look at the guys renewed deal if everybody involved. Make him have the option to. Who boarded deals rivals ordered to the guys will. Make it work. So real simple. So three years of his make sure Israelis and three years seventy million. And then assuming he stays healthy another two years at how much. Ordered me at all. That would come out to volley at 5110. About then you know what would actions. YouTube. 120. It was cute guys so. Yeah It it it any guaranteed dollars sport. That that's just not gonna work for the players work for last. Well hope what works right now what made two big guy a two year deal seven million. With a guarantee. Appeared to remain nimble. The two more years of targeted what are enviable. Well let's get. That that that the five year 120 million dollar contract. Where. OK I guess that that's reasonable but I mean you if you're guaranteeing the money that it's not three years in the two years to five years. And yet we could what three years didn't work out three years it will be created numerous believe that you develop very animated. You know. Yeah I mean I like well. I guess I can't get what you in there you know again trial period so to speak at three year seventy million dollar. You know test blown the CP states LP and see if he still producing. The news saying guaranteed fifty million after that which is five for once money. Why would John again you'd think about it okay hometown discount know we heard the operator gets excited about it. to get past the idea of a hometown discount meeting complete insanity. Seventy million dollars even over a three years average dollars a lot of money. But it still. 50% of what can get out in the open market. You know why would I take seventy million guaranteed even for three years when I could just double that six years guaranteed at 140 million. You know six I can get that extra seventy million dollars over three more seasons just to go out in the open market. That would be a great team friendly kind of idea but Lester were being eyed Joseph and Wakefield once the way HL. What they've done so much for the in the you know 78 years. That burning up I don't know are already up at. I agree with UN and the injury concern for me is that they're now we are talking about Clay Buchholz we'd be having added I merely different conversation. But with Lester even a year it was bad in 2012. Still pitch to plus innings. Yeah I mean you don't get a picture wondering about that party and you don't hate you guys brought there get a going to be offered. And I are I think I really like the attitude that you just want the behavior I don't understand why the Internet situation black. We're not talking about giving the guy a 140. I'm not all that with the amount of money more book like the object audit. Well he had I think the Red Sox kind of Hewitt in the regard as well that's why I wasn't completely floored when he said OK if we here opera was the most that they had. I'll put out there by the time they broke off negotiations. But I'd be and neighbor of 400. Yell now and a and a big. Average annual value a Ford seventy for is an opera that you know the players get a that's an opera that it's designed to be turned out. Yeah independent though they looked like but based on the yacht I don't know it. All the the PR stunt getting negative PR because I think I had tickets ridiculous they have any Lester did lie to me if he blocks away at the end of the day. And and the Red Sox look back and in the end flick back and say. And they could of they could negotiate they could out of spring training but the only opera percent beat the teams the only one's gonna look bad that's an. Aerial my opinion darker integrated you know integrated I'm sorry you know it made it. It's the same age and it did Dustin Pedroia has I can't think of his name off my head to similar Pedroia as we negotiated down discounts the This situation it is thought here we cannot I mean update completely done park are now completely. It sounds like till the end of the season got to do have an exclusive negotiating window. Went thanks for the college and they've exclusive negotiating window with Lester. After the season is over and that it's free agency. But you know in my mind even if the Red Sox were come back with a big number in the fall. But it even gets to. Reagents even gets to the point were other teams are our ticketing contracts are offers a Lester you're probably spending more than what you have spent. It just get the deal done now. You just avoid any possibility any any chance did you rate in the another team another suitor and unlike David Ortiz we can't you know we had a debate about Ortiz is going to be even a market that is. And I thought maybe lot of people but absolutely now. That's fine with Lester there's no debate right. I mean when I can debate the fact that it thirty year old going on 31 year old lefty it's starting pitcher with a great post season track records that market. We know that that's the case there's going to be money thrown at this. So you have the opportunity. To not only negotiate exclusively with him up or you even touch or even Free agency. It to get an offer on the table to sign this guy if they're not able losing the player beat. I signing into a deal that maybe goes outside their comfort zone because now they worry about free agency not to worry about other offers them. You could have made a better fate in my mind decide than these reported figures in at these numbers are right you know he's not taking. It's an it's designed to be refused to keep brought out their deceit it's a hit proper. I don't think organ necessarily buy that I think that this mark baseball banner that. That they and as long as you're in line with keeping Lester some cables don't want that at any high price and that's fine that's your opinion I disagree by. It any band that wants Jon Lester back is valued at his team. It and understand just what the market is looking for the seventy's at It's an insult. Text messages committed 37937. AT&T like. Texas is Red Sox have too many pitches in the system they had the upper hand. Now that it's does its thing is too many pitchers in this is have a lot of starting pitching depth they have a lot of potential. As allowed by hope and is better than Jon Lester obese Kerr shot why not. But you know what you have in Jon Lester. You don't know what you have yet Henry and that goes to my point of if you're gonna have some of these cost control pre arbitration arbitration guys up. Lester got the money to do. He could have a a lot of money coming off the books over the next read of where years. Yet a pitcher John Lackey threw for 500000 dollars on next season. In NA and it not a salary cap sport but it sport I care about a 189 million dollar luxury tax threshold for the at least they're from last. I that to take three years the market's already at five to six. years as Lester won't get 140 on the open market I disagree I think he will. I the Texas is give Lester one of these two deals. Or for a hundred or seven and 12611. if the offer candidate for for a hundred then I would say you know the Sox made an effort. They made shots try to sign him and take battled down discounted terms of the year when it for par seventy it. and a few text is going back to a couple calls as a wide world Lester take three year deal and a trial period. We can get five years guaranteed and I completely agree this is an interesting text here get this one before the break. I you know I'm not entirely sure why everyone has the phrase 110 for five I should get it done because he had no idea. What will get it done in theory. Yet that would be a hometown discount. 111 for five years an option six and eight I have no way of knowing. Whether that would get it done so he's looking at 5110. I just keep coming back that number because I look at. What the market would probably and keep going back to guys like Cole Hamels you know reasonable comparable to last year's regular season numbers I see six. In 144. EC 23 and change per year so take roughly that average annual value. 43 in his case it's going to take a year back it five years old hometown discount. But he's not leaving and and the billions of dollars That's why I come back to that number I'll get it done I have no idea what I'd be willing to go to say. 150 over 520 million a year probably. Start pushing diablo or we'll talk. You see what the number but a number I have in mind. And a lot of people have in mind they think 22 million a year twenty to 22 million a year years and college day. Five years a 10210 million dollars 6177797937. The point though I had no idea we don't know. What gets I can tell you this though. Ward seven he doesn't get it on told you that before knowing. That that was the for the Jon Lester turned out we get back to your calls coming up next we'll talk war. A Red Sox get to the Bruins as well and what touch and the Celtics before the end of the show as well get to 4 o'clock Chris Blondie with Sports Radio. WE yeah.
Villani doesn't understand the Red Sox' approach to the negotiations with Jon Lester for an extension. Sure, you have to start somewhere, but their offer was so off base, it was almost insulting. He wonders if the Red Sox truly want Lester in the future and if they don't, WHY!?!
The Red Sox will have the proverbial log jam in the outfield when Shane Victorino returns - what should they do? Send Jackie Bradley back down, make a trade or something else...Butch and Buck discuss.
Transcript - will not be 100% accurate
Patriots and jets this afternoon 1 o'clock MetLife stadium. This is NFL Sunday Sports Radio WEEI joining us on the line right now from MetLife. Is our colleague from WEEI dot com Chris -- -- morning press. Morning gentlemen I got -- during the morning. I was half joking with Matt during the the break I said it's come to this. I saw one to wait a minute ago saying Rob Gronkowski was not on the first bus at at that he's expected to be on the second bus I saw another tweet a moment ago. Saying Drew Rosenhaus has just shown up on the field. Here at MetLife stadium -- I guess were doing everything we can do to surround this gronkowski story. Remember that scene in anchorman or in Iran and watch. It I. -- what this where were all sitting standing where we're looking at the field go recover outcome ultimately delicate and -- -- Until we see you know obviously there's no way of knowing him right up until. You -- -- up to in the -- argument for the game there's no way to know for sure but. -- all -- at this point everything went the tactic he's going to be out there or they're not gonna have a sizeable impact on the stand is another matter altogether but but it might believe right now Columbia. What's the what's the facts when he's back who's down I'm just curious rolled the old world will not keep someone now is does that get rid of the fullback. Or what what what sort of I'm curious what to approach will be now with him on the roster. It's a great question. I think what you're looking at now is it -- from really from number standpoint I have to think that. You'll -- feel OK okay wolf what our current count you out there but at the expense of let him go market as -- and obviously vehicle or its management reports. -- -- Austin Collie that that that's. Alex -- article port but in terms of being infamy and exchanges when it comes to that I didn't spot. I have to think the guy that year an increase in the rap music is going to be ball again I know you know -- awful lot but I think. You appeared to looking at a -- purely I don't perspective. I think Mulligan going to be guys could be significant decrease or possibly acted. Exactly yeah exactly I I think it. I looked either I I have -- out forecasted that seven you know I mean we know I've already I think they want to eat more you know there. Justin -- you know because again we don't know. What -- impact where -- album we talked about it but we shall forfeit its -- time to ramp up Kadima action. It shall be in place. You know that your Whitewater -- -- -- -- Exactly you know you -- -- between 90%. Out -- and I wouldn't be surprised to. And -- grind out a way to use him go couple weeks to go get an idea that. We currently meet between Kurds now -- garlic mode and an -- Some significant game action as a result because again I just it's too much at that point to expect -- house to play under a. Just from the roster facts about bring about a situation on here with the Dan Connolly having had a thing this week who seems like he's -- -- pass tests and will be out there. What is fill in Marcus cannon was listed now with a shoulder. Does that -- domino effect -- knows -- V tech will always be officer of the of the of the ranch behind everyone but those -- more than the carrier crisp barker. Is payments situation -- and offer was he out their practice of. He can't -- without they're practicing it was limited later in the week this was summing it kind of came up later in the week on Wednesday I know he was out there for four goal but. I know can't situation -- we're -- but yeah I mean -- -- -- -- situation fuel load -- -- elect Obama -- really a partner -- a tremendous job the last couple years. In situation like this -- -- street -- President next may not that it wouldn't be surprised to Parker and -- talked about those connected -- -- -- going to be doctored and it couldn't the the mothers of need. But but yeah I mean dirt dirt field at. Guard here and that combined with the fact that they're going up against a really good defense their front seven I think that the clothes to match approximately. We were making the point earlier in the hour that that in effect this is Rex Ryan Super Bowl is net. Yeah yeah yeah only good in a lot of ways that look it is -- I think Rex I -- -- treated over the number of occasions that would show that I I think Rex. McConnell have to let things play out but you know -- just put it -- -- auto so familiar with the current defense I think a big anything offensively and I mean any significance or seventeen points. They're the European most came with that front seven because it's back but I really believe you know next in the rest of front I really like what verbally particularly when Acosta stopped rather think that's going to be huge I think it's. That the patriots need to find out a -- where the spread them out. Or you use utilize -- you know some courses and brought back epic -- -- -- aggressive defense. You're gonna have to figure out a way to beat this stretch run deep that it's the second best run defense in the league -- really going to be the story I noted. The first on the patriots played comedian rush for a hundred urged that it took I got out of there with a win speaker to forgo the retro -- as a group they -- trigger a way to get to that number today. Switching gears Ludacris studio aside and over that leaves or is usually one out there for him not being out on the field like this week especially as good as he's played this first month. The thing that sort of jumped off to my attention was that it was the -- And for France adopt the don't realize import why I think he was available from Tampa was sort of the injury history had a he was on our our for a hip he was our for hamstring and and you going the last year comes the patriots. Please pretty good initially. But then re injures the hip misses time Rangers hamstring both issues that have put a monarch. I guess my curiosity is now I think -- that's why you're looking at a one year contract sort of prove yourself see -- you after sixteen not just did you play good for a month. My curiosity in this though is. We're seeing here up do you -- I know we know hit it looked like kept lecture that's what he grabbed in the game. We have information about sort of the past stuff was this that same hip flexor or his hips were of that air quotes could be in a part of -- that -- actually an injured in past years. It's my understanding at this point it was the same injury unit that you had problems with over the last few years it and that it was that same part of -- up. How much I know I I understand your point that you know that kind of one of those things where it could be any number thing around -- but I think right now we get it is it's that same situation that you dealt with local accurate I also think it. Someone brought it to me on -- this week I think it's an excellent point. You don't know if you wanna give him that kind of money because of the credit situation -- in all these two words that you know will will spring to mind when it comes to. The putrid quarterbacks -- big deal of -- that we bought. You know you you you you keep yourself in Portugal recorder or are you have to -- the guy in the and you go to get hurt there and I think that's one of the reasons that they're going to be caught. I wouldn't be surprised that if you get the -- that policy. The political collective deal that Sebastian -- side his right. In that a lot of it is built in you know that their their play time incentives built in there that it has to meet if you want to make money because of the injury stricken. You know met reporters are well taken in the you know one of the reasons because you -- doing well look at this point. He's become a two week. But you look at that injury history didn't look at the fact that -- sprang up outwards through -- -- we're not something that's clearly -- that auto traffic on port. I think that's certainly going to affect. Is free agent status over the next season. Over the last several seasons in the second meeting of the season between the patriots in the -- The patriots -- kind of had their way with New York are you expecting much of the same again here today. I think there's going to be a closer game than in years past when we've seen those second games I think. Those second being outcome at least in my experience most of those things you've become -- dispute where did you have to get that it stood at oracle momentum thing -- get worse and worse and worse -- -- I'm not gonna say the -- are going to -- worse over the course dispute but I think approval. And the jet fuel pretty good about where they are now I still think ruling and has more than enough on both sides of the ball to win this commitment to trigger to -- the -- clearly consistently. I just think that even with all of the defense to question the -- -- I don't think the -- Other than you know ball -- -- you know the little bit of an ability to run the most actually get to going to be at the front. I think when you get into a situation where you reaching out the ball I think -- -- better but he's not there yet I think New England resisting by by a touchdown Burke Beebe and -- but I don't think it's going to be accountable lot that we seem. In the second game of this series which in Alaska -- I'm looking at the end jets' schedule after they have the patriots here this afternoon. There at Cincinnati next Sunday in a 4 o'clock game and then their home against the saints on November 3 before they hit the bye week in week ten. I mean this three game schedule if they wanna go all went three in this stretch their clocked. They're done like dinner and you almost wonder if Rex would survive under those circumstances. They are they in the grip and that's one of the reasons that the -- kind of got to let that about it right now -- is looking good but I think the patriots also point they'll. They have a really good opportunity this week and next week to start really creating some separation. -- that when it comes to the rest of the vision because if you sweep the jets. Two games up on them in and you have a situation with the ball and you're able to beat the ultra. You can put a little bit more separation between yourself and let -- you're good to Lamy seemed so you're starting to see. That the the playoff picture -- come -- a little bit sharper open or not he rented -- Halloween yet but it over the next -- Two weeks I think he could have a real opportunity to start setting themselves up lately for the bank to be -- Yeah I think I'll mom stern -- -- -- east division standings are so Chris and I think you're right especially in Miami still and head to head twice I mean in the absence of the jets closing this -- it becomes a two horse race in Miami still got some tough games in front of them but. Yeah I might be your rear view mirror situation I think we're on the same page assists for his wrecks and he sort of -- defying the team out I don't know -- player for his job I'm not I'm not not so sure there I just think their soul. Be raft of good offensive. Dangerous players on the outside of the ball. Dave reinvent themselves of defense a program like they used to be prior and I think they're gonna release themselves and to cap situation with the Sanchez. Which might help him you know give and -- and other -- -- peace or to build around geno I think it might have something there even the is even evidence of the united sever name Nader or something like that. I think you can make his case and it isn't going to be with the with the with the women it's doing -- my view. But just based on what they've built there that there might be worth another long look because are going to be such a good defensive unit. Yet that that included within the lookout port rare look at that -- -- -- -- the run defense is that -- that is where Pollock and go to bought the operator burger on first down with such first don't you will be. In that. Ability to containing teams on first down set the book burners beat first second third out blitz situations we although Rex float that well with so really there. That -- to really be true tested its game is going to be. Putrid offensively at first they can consistently get foreign our -- to -- a global -- for a short yardage on first down. -- -- -- the jets are what forced. Just become a playback over fuel a little bit it now look at it takes the fight to them a little bit but yeah I think it from going forward is -- -- looking -- you're looking at -- -- I I think being beat Gordon get themselves a couple of offered the option. You know they're primarily in the passing game inaudible Stephen Hill that in an earlier and still the correct word answer into the committed to be reported to crumble and notably because the total -- It's -- suspension for UD but I think the current peaceful situation Oregon struggled all but the Buehrle optical and to consult my options that are against. But you settler group talked about earlier I think its defenses in their new recruits spot -- Santonio Holmes it to me just looks like a bad investment guys and a lot of money and Rick and they haven't gotten much from that spot in the and in the out of that I look at Steven -- you -- one option to me is these are -- developmental players so. I think they don't have a lot to work with on outside of the ball and because they prepared their cap situation with some of the the cut downs last offseason another big snipe with with the galaxy and Chisholm ABS -- -- the good -- on -- Wilson. It -- updated to -- one thing to be able copycat situation that wouldn't want to ask you this letter. That happens -- that -- stupid -- -- salary cap room -- to be able to maneuver elect it's and other things so. They're able to clear a lot of space -- make a lot of move. They're so we think that even if the country -- Richard you know country it is separate forgot. But -- security needs are gonna get a relatively deep and epic. It know what they have to do is you'll wreck in music tropical build on that. It really kind of put some offensive pieces around or around you know stripped. In the same way I think it was kind of stupid for Jimmer stated Tug on Superman's cape with Peyton Manning prior to tonight's matchup in Indianapolis. I always wonder why the jets. Continually. Take little shots at Tom Brady the week before they're gonna play Tom Brady and they didn't get -- You I don't get that either I don't know much about it Rex -- -- the one thing that struck me this week if there was nothing from any veterans. You know I know the -- select anything but you or Marty didn't see anything in the guys who go around for -- truly in you know start chirping with the younger guys. And Dutch shell loosen up again I was sixteen -- or throw them out there in front yes exactly I mean that those guys who. Really don't have a history in this robbery in a Willie Cologne that something predictable from Stewart -- last year so I wonder how much of it is.
