Matt Chatham and the guys discuss Bill Cowher's recent radio appearance where he said, "We didn’t lose the game because of any Spygate... I think if they’re guilty of anything, they’re guilty of arrogance, because they were told not to do something. But it was something that everybody does. The only thing they got caught [was] doing it with a camera. We had people that always tried to steal signals. Stealing someone’s signals was a part of the game, and everybody attempted to do that."
Every day at this time to give baseball the daily diamond Butler 937 WEEI. It's split squad action today for the Red Sox they'll play two. Open the same time 1 PM jokers that we don't calls the game is Red Sox all Famer right here on 937 WEEI he joins us. From Fort Myers Lou how are you. Very good you know somehow I got that little you guys produced some part. an opportune time. Listen its its say it's a tribute to and we love that we get this ready for all things baseball including your conversations but. desperate training you've done these games for a long time Joseph my guess is. You see you've seen some worse lineups in the on the Red Sox sent to Miami that they're all upset about against then a Marlins game of baseball find them for last week. I sure they only had one guy will probably be on the year luster started this city and our. There's no apparent engine training and they you know when you look at shot. With. Higher prices for premium games there's no guarantee that the Iranians. But definitely spring training work. that is what's lacking project Bradley made the trip up there. Arizona. All the more are some course key to their lineup at home. Pretty much regulars so little spot in the batting order so. Are you trying to. Please the home crowd and it appears and see what happens you know with the Yankees. Coming here on Thursday night our currency hit the fact you bring better players. But it comes with the territory. Joseph down there spring training when star toast he's popping up is is obviously Grady Sizemore. And Jackie Bradley junior and the question don't have is if if Grady Sizemore shows he's healthy and any resemblance of the player he once was does matter what Jackie doesn't agree to be the center fielder. initially questioned. I think it probably doesn't hurt quite as much moral matter. Or great ability he can stay healthy and he's playing against it date back to back dates to the first time. Yeah I hit yesterday. Alicia only got an infielder and got damaged or cute at first base which is almost is that arm of the year four point one. Cleveland so I think that's a very good sign terribly actor and well I went about. And those certainly is an editor you and that's. That is this that destructive act to hear it are completely and then based Major League pitching the you thought the fact that. Create such a simple swing. Would make it a little bit easier the most Gartner positioned. Joseph they talk up here has been what they do that left side of the infield as in a Bogart's shortstop will little Brooks at third another good offensive day. Couple days for will they're committed to that it is a chances Stephen Drew still walks through that door at shortstop for the Sox. Well I think it would then have to be an injury or are collapsed by one of the two I don't think that there are so. I was very talked about it here. And that these very difficult to even be sitting out there here there maps that he knows they're probably needed the most. I wonder if had you ever get in the mix. But I think right now they're very content that you don't look what happens. Does that mean it might not change tomorrow hopeless. all cars. played that well shortly send you aren't here you know typical play. There. That we exceed what swing the bat well. I will despite well. and one being marketed here pretty well. Joseph looks rosters barring injury could be set so a lot of the guys have been younger guys that could impact later on you there's a lot of good young arms we've seen Donner camp we've seen on TV already. Has anybody kind of taken that next step in your impressed you maybe more than others. I think the white that in impresses me as divisive friends we these power that it really strong. Will power. Really limited these days in in the minor late in the Red Sox system that is all of its all of our Fisher Al. Put we're gonna matter speaking but I think we're really answers power any. Very selective of where 81 not that here earlier but he's really impressed me. The guys that was so impressive last year was Zander the page with us in his maturity in the way handle himself behind the scenes and curious. You notice anything different with Zander Bogart's on the verge of being a Red Sox on out to shortstop opening day shortstop and a guy you project for the future. I think carrying out that the natural. Charisma but also law that calmness about him. Last year that he showed his rookie who wanted to the World Series and Charlotte that it can't. So I think it's. We just sitting and very nicely and each night it is gonna get there have been ordered or carried away here and he understands that it it would it would. Failures of the scene that what was the successes there. I think his upside is just. Item two and a half weeks away from Red Sox opening day UN in Baltimore march 31 you'll appreciate the time and enjoy the double header today down there at the Well we're all waiting for of Baltimore and you know we've got these they're cute kind and they'll help us on the road that you can't it do it at the plate. OK guys thanks. Now voicing the Red Sox stigma now. On the daily dime and you'll be there. We we got travel arrangements good we got this thing because it's kinda two and a half weeks away a year ignite Stephen I want to have drive their last minute. I know everyone's got their ducks in a row here and that never had its traffic travels never an issue here I'll take that never an issue never in a hotel. Two hours away from where you go for QB good two and a half weeks Red Sox opening day. Joseph Lou the call right here 93 point seven WEEI target jumped eighty here at the top welcome back.

Twelve he's or didn't do you really doing it and then that all of that what Bryant are often see in the one constant you. Baseball we look thin blue. On Sports Radio WV. Can you just instructed what to ask the team was ten and one with his starting in the post season. Well I mean there's an senior manager at Google I don't know loses stopping other. The whole war stat the other. Even so. You've been no time. I don't think Ken Rosenthal to get a Christmas cards ever again for Jonny Gomes Butler and 937. February the Jonny sat down to the feels like for an extended interview. Rain yesterday in the Boston Globe. PG couple quotes from this to get your reaction to that part of daily dime it. Spots like piece of this is not every quote he's quoted a lot in this stories merger to go He talks about his. Talks about his path to get to where Call before 2010. I played it 29 years old night in a hundred home runs that. Only one other guy in the big leagues had a hundred career home run to signed a multi year deal before the age of thirty. BJ Upton was the other guy. He was going year to year with arbitration. The other one. I was the only what eight years of service time position player who hadn't made eight million bucks reality domino brought the at the age of other guys and how much money he should have been making yeah. Here's the other quote I hoisted out of my reaction yet those is that. That that agent. It's easy to get a packet from the how that works of things ages that. He's telling him all about himself and I was this element is that the bottom and everything else. Not or agency look it up apple what but it gets more of an agent well he didn't always one as Rosenthal said it is well aware of that. How about this one then. There's no stat for winning player. It gets brushed under the rug they talk about a player's war. Hot money team war goals I've turned a team around twenty games four different times. Worst to first. I was on Tampa I was on Tampa team historically bad in 2007 I went to the World Series in 2008. The reds ended in the playoffs are many years when you're building a team. I'm last analysts because the lights go out you don't see the player grind out at bats run hard the first face every time. Or see a player respect the game and his teammates or through the way a player approaches the game. And the work ethic and a what I like is. Like this one I've gone from getting pinch hit for six times the first month and half. The becoming to pinch hitting guru guy at the end of the year a 78 and ninth last year abetting for. In the World Series. Here's the thing he has been in you know with budget everyday player maybe. No one's ours turned into a couple of times and in eleven years in the big leagues you know he's never made it to you to mind Nokia's best it was ever he's ever gotten to from the Boston Red Sox. The stick around the game as long as you have as far as at bats everything you have to be. Extremely confident in your ability and he has no question. At a we are belly backup catcher the his to Doug he's going deep knowledge that this is cocky Steiner team. In April it was twice a week or whatever laws once a week because you in order to survive you you have to believe you're that good Johnny does. You know and that's up in the playoffs. But he says that an intangible because a little full moderates such wanton soup because Johnny getting back in there again. Here you pack it obviously the World Series of three run homer but he is very confident. Armored guys and more talking about you could this be an issue. And if you don't win but he could. The year went last year there time to punish compliant but if you don't win it gives it its I don't wanna see here keep watch They've played in a World Series in America the most he played in a regular season but it could be you know I think he's very confident his ability. I think gold wanted to play more last year I read these concert nick for a today is a guy who sees the writing on the wall. That he's not gonna get a long term multi year deal the Boston Red Sox and his he's expressing. He's angst than that you Daniel lava. He's got to play. Final he's got to play via a lot tonight you probably won't you know it but the thing is these are realized it was that you what he can bring is. So that's pretty valuable not only you know pop off the bench it come off the bench bench quake hit some home runs but he knows you be good at bat on base. is a good clubhouse guy. So me at least I think of the I want state game long long time but. If he thinks those things those qualities. a three year deal with junior made no are very good deal for Johnny gold or. Last year was in this or it translate them finally be in the eight billion dollar player that he references right on right million dollar player. He's not getting the playing time this year to do that no and here's the other part of this he spring training the numbers are not most important but. Can make the argument price has been the most impressive hitter the Red Sox and spring training. Probably right in left field right they're getting mix don't trade him. He's now coming down the so for it's finally here is deal bioscience have brands waiting in the wings. I believe sees the writing on the wall that he's not gonna play a lot this year and is not gonna get eight million dollars from the right. And NB a because they can stick rise 32 years those can be 33 this year to the three or four years because he because of their presence he has on the team good power off the bench. He can survive in a play it's not just he wants to be air okay. But it might not be here somewhere else just stick around Camelot was very similar the last couple years what the Baltimore they want to bring amend it. For that presents a veteran to help some of these young kids to help them build something that he went to Toronto for the same reasons helped them build something. You know and and Jonny to be the same way. You know this year if you win it's not an issue for losing you guys are performing of the wanna be in that line. You know I don't think it'll be the make public. You know I don't think delivered becoming public up and it's really bothering this team he'll deal with internally privately. But he'll play in this game for a long is pushing to stay here. Hoping to be here. 61777979837.

So well in the interest -- we know this Rex is in our lives of their lives and multiyear deal. Re not love with the jets you're damn right the bill -- sat down with Bill Belichick for CBS this weekend. And at this conversation about your when he won a gold wanna be remembered as an end the conversation go back to CBS panel. And the first thing Boomer Esiason says -- yeah I believe that Bill Belichick is the greatest coach of all time but. He does have -- on his resume and -- use that as -- blemish on his record. Not today bill -- who did that interview. Tucked in 937 the fan in Pittsburg and it's a Pittsburgh guy coached against Bill Belichick and he is fan base steeler fans call all the time and say. Telecheck should be taken down not because of spy game will be -- our. Doesn't seem to say that today when he goes on 937 Pittsburgh. We didn't lose the game because of that spot and it causes them having any additional things in the -- obviously about that list of -- -- -- -- computer because there were told not to do something that. It would stop and everybody there was you know -- -- got caught doing it with a camera. You know we have people -- or try to steal signals you know steal someone's circles close -- a -- game and everybody attempted to do that. And so part of it and we had respect him that we were using to do it is not an element anymore because. The communications that take place. On the field -- quarterback linebacker. Such an element again it does things that really what happened we lost that game they outplayed us and that. You know has not to do still signal to achieve anything else stated they were purple vote that day. That is bill cower in Pittsburg than a 937 the fan the -- the problem with being guilty of arrogance. But we'll Belichick hope all right. Run home run I look an answer from capitol now I -- power just -- Frost I sort of higher state I think all of patriots and it being understood how and I article went to this takings by gates overblown of course would agree with our -- other coaches. Along the way. Will you Spike -- as an excuse bill cower who lost some big gains against ballot check in the spike in era. Says now we lose this by -- again just we got outplayed the majesty look -- in listening -- that in Pittsburgh on. Collier never good coach anyway and -- at all you Eric Fleming is claiming it is great right now about it and -- -- affiliate nobody calls because he would they'll go to -- time -- -- -- an interview. -- Bible -- Bible is the best coach all the time in the league as a Douglas by gays and yes still it's like you know once it's so much better than. -- -- -- -- Steel City IC what does it would have entered in -- -- Steel City is that's the beer right Arnold Palmer is at the dates. I don't know what you wanna violent now not a senator Ted sales to swear up. The missile not a depressed people in the the state of Pennsylvania right now after in their old guy just say hey you like that answer and -- that was great. Those guys respect one another I think the guys at the highest level in this league respect for other and they understand how -- Of an effect that would add and to towers point it was more juiced. The way to handle it because it's right everywhere was doing it and how to minimal -- irons into Bristol iron -- ago or so you know it did but the risk wasn't worth the reward is what you'll get in -- small. And there was a warning you know the pay for its targets such old news so tired. Especially for Broncos people who bring about -- of this began to find in 98 for salary cap violations to what to do tomorrow and I heard. Polly talking about yesterday you know hot and -- makes good points spot the patriots are guilty by new and it paid the penalty they obviously misinterpreted the rule they. They -- They knew the rule and it pushed the Campbell right that there's no doubt my uncle bill -- I I'm calling bill and when Bob Kraft says -- -- but Bill Belichick tell a lot craft and will talked to -- the ball on 1 o'clock. When Bill Belichick says the Bob Kraft that out on a scale of zero to 100 it help us one he's he's asked to rank it. Well then you're telling me -- and -- think you're stupid is it only helped to one of a hundred -- what do kept doing. Obviously it -- choice image interpretation to. Always felt the rule that when the when it went out was ski use it during the game -- -- really entered game means for the future kind of match some things up. And that's three misinterpret or plus if your. Or philosophy is to do 100 little things in the all the little things Q will we eventually do summit on -- in the were legal same. All the little magical possibly get from the way you prepare for the do things you do throughout the course the week you think it actually pinpoint any one of those hundred no -- -- the one help to win. You know again it immutable facts are we spot means nothing it's doing -- he's right -- is just a real lame excuse for the people want everybody. Everybody. -- is different and I. Individually or baseball or don't care they pay their penalty and I most people in Peyton Manning Peyton Manning called the best coach. -- history the NFL yesterday and he knows what's gone and bill cower. I've got good stuff on Pittsburgh radio today speaking to Pittsburg rabbit has a waiting in Pittsburg talk about spy -- for a long time your ten I Brad. Brad Brad. You just. I spoke on budget. -- that are. Moment that burial and and everybody's pretty much took pictures book legacy it was because percent of the -- -- Bill Belichick is the pages shoes. Do some 2002. The predators record of seventy in 37 and up responded that it got better. -- radiation point forward. And were at more C championship game and. -- Internet and a better winning percentage after spy game yet we talked about settled yesterday to. At all -- pattern. And you know two point advantage but it. Their revenues -- plenty of numbers out there I mean the minute it came out to you know bill Belichick's team with sixteen and -- PA went to a suitable eighteen and known you'd say well that's why in the fourth quarter there was still more points going up that's scoreboard at times as -- but if you do leak. I'm gonna make sure everybody knows I can still win this is ridiculous. What he said about the people in Pittsburgh. And we brought up at the and we talked about yesterday -- and it if you don't get it here. In -- but because everybody appreciates and understands what Bill Belichick is. If you don't like Bill Belichick -- -- that opinion and ever change. If you don't like them he says Pittsburgh fans obviously don't like them they'll look at it and question his accomplishments. And -- we're talking about winning and the suitable post albeit we know what's ridiculous. But others who don't like command will we hear it. All the time and we -- we get calls throughout the football season -- bring it up what is he won since what is number 81 cents. It's it's in a clinic in 1918 champ and the Yankees but it pisses you off feel like I just win another one and sort of put that thing behind as well. As he needs now and guys are right there I don't remember a single piece of you know cause affected overcame -- -- some like hey we've got this call or they were gonna use that are. It's sold into decimal the effect of this would have had. It's just a little reckless and I think you're dressed in culture -- to move on and other people made more with the need to focus some people need excuses for why they failed. And did you -- you're by yourself with counseling putts. I think the payroll of iron city -- and -- -- thing you know you make awaiting a Marshall -- bringing up John Harbaugh. It will bring it up for a tour sites and we'll bring up after puff piece pregame. You know in the stands Saint Louis is probably the worst of the offenders because they feel like they were so much better I think that's a thread that you've heard probably half a dozen quotes a -- -- the number -- the most famous poet. There's a real internal belief that. We were supposed to win that. There's no way and we still believe what they saw -- -- -- -- -- that years later we didn't you know it's kind of like -- joking thing now that people play and respect card they'll respect us. There is a legitimate 23 year were arm. You know -- we want that next one religious ran through the schedule woman dated again for the third. Where. We didn't believe that we were that good after the -- particular union -- we really didn't have a point upon a -- -- camp all of them that the story was amazing and blobby blog people we are -- -- love display. It took a lot of sort of beating people over the head realized while this is a dynasty this is a really good organization like a lot of good players. And part of that was his belief in that first game it. Which just happen in the -- build in this little seed this little X.
