Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

It's our -- hall of fame baseball writer Peter Gammons on the eighteenth tee decks like the -- -- -- Temple is so we got back from people who can't. They're upset with. Standing war I mean. But -- that it is -- very offended -- and so. You know my life is you know do I think you're not. If you guys I love -- my -- I don't think it. On reenacting. Upshot is that greater idea I didn't think it would -- look great hockey. And but there are those who do. Did you did you happen here Jack Edwards comments. No I didn't -- there are six or seven probably just play one short before you cause its comic number three talking about you Peter Jack Edwards. Just absolutely. Not -- spectrum he has. No validity he has no credibility. He you know if if the guy were at the -- all the time they'd reconsider his opinion. So -- goes on to say that you don't have any credibility because you don't stand. In front of John -- relish and say that was something ought to slap shot you look -- asinine coach I don't know that you had to be in the arena or at the ballpark or at the stadium to have a comment about a particular sporting event. No I think my -- sort of the art posters. Aren't as many times experience asking a question like. On what issues political or something in being sworn that -- mean and that's. I. I don't believe -- wise -- the -- is so. Altercation as a pure. Cure but at that they -- -- It is it is capsule is not ludicrous and every fan has an opinion they don't all go to every game they they don't put any practices. Does this go back a long way for you Pete do you in. A jacket was have a history. Now we've always been friends so that's. Our own end here and -- I guess I don't. I appreciate it being buried -- out of fort. Brett the sport they -- sea port actually obviously has always what -- -- hockey and soccer and you're Schwartz he's been devoted to. It's funny -- upbeat because that these for soccer mentality the media covers soccer. Treats it like it's there's and you cannot and you must let it speak -- of it and I always make the comparison says I'm an -- baseball guys. Who if someone says that -- baseball boring and get offended football guys battle likens -- to violent whatever. People cover football don't care if you don't like it but soccer guys and against the summit in hockey guys. Demand that you woman respect love and respect -- sport. And this is a great example. There are are are really the harder it is. Always like to. I can see each one of those -- always fighting uphill. -- he had -- -- -- football. Usually baseball college basketball. Golf auto racing the other group that the big majors -- in this country. And I understand. I can understand why so what altered by the friendship Bradley whose brother was. US team lost a coalition support this amnesty it will soccer and they match. Which is offline but he's not that -- that he loves it ought to talk about. What Jerry's point as an actor -- and in this particular case dead on accurate it almost sounds like Jack is taking personal take a listen to this. That's out of luck suckers shall walk at all not that sort of broad side out there from -- this -- -- -- that's why are all your miners for all. They're here can have whatever opinion you -- -- can be as long as you want hockey is not a miners. Hockey is is in fact the greatest sport world. We're going after Jack said that appeared to be sharpen your front door the next -- not undergo a face a face like he wanted you to do with Arturo of these guys that happened. Now now okay to make sure. It would -- a reduction in the Monday I'm opening children were probably as I -- article move toward though. Let -- awakened and -- -- all comes from Concord. It's all like hockey players play in all the -- should be every bit. And I mean it's. If they -- need is greatest -- I certainly enjoy a lot it's there are the knee. Watching. Watching them probably wore riskier -- was great is one thing in watching that. -- Cold War mentality. Is another. One who actually sort of -- like -- -- -- very funny system that's here like WW. Maybe it -- let's go baseball question how much of the Yankees closed the gap in this off season. I -- they're very good job -- on merit and they're gonna have to still as some people probably -- -- another -- to -- the same time I mean. -- It's really hard to know exactly how go to rockets were beaten me a lot lot of guys out there. And execution -- he has weight loss can get -- through 220 innings. Then particularly pretty good and I think the lineup is -- of the outfield people with -- Ellsbury. And Gartner. It in the big in the big yard. Excuse that we go -- I -- that -- I really believe Adam and knowing that Mark Teixeira. It's just about completely healthy again I think that that helps a lot against a lot and for the world bank and. I was -- thing about Lester is comments last thing you never hear players say -- ever right before free agency how much money you think he's going to. Take from the tape please give it is -- -- a hundred million dollar contract for the 175. Years a free agent. I think -- I think -- -- but that danger -- is trying to predict that kind of contract. Win. The conflicts in the boats that supply -- countries that -- one to 35 in which is a lot different from crucial or some aka. This ball. Short paper is that sort going to be -- Chilavert forties. But the same time westerners. It tenacity in this leadership. Because that. Techno and getting. I think it's you know I -- venture is that like it. Let things settle we'll get emotional sit outward. -- agents await -- last year would -- -- Against -- what so it. A lot of hysteria about right now I -- -- was -- like John -- not play. Well hold negotiate he didn't have a script. You read from people ask -- about the agency. Which spoke from the heart not from what he was told cherry and I appreciate. Peter thanks for the time we'll look forward to running and few in Fort Myers about three weeks from now won't be long okay well at all over. Here and I'm not. There are all over or maybe don't go out there and -- -- that you do that pocket Myers park right there haven't been -- -- on the AT&T. Them.
