Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia 'wouldn't have' had knee surgery after 2017 season

"Friday. We are joined now by WBZ TV's. Dan Roach who was down in spring training with the Boston Red Sox staffer new debt. Hey, josh. I'm very well. Thank you. So Dustin Pedroia in camp yesterday, but this morning he talked about regrets about undergoing the knife in two thousand seventeen. Yeah. You had a process called restoration cartilages surgery on his left knee. And really it's been an adventure for him because he's the only traditional Claire ever be major league baseball to have that type of surgery. So, you know, he told me several times, you know, the pivot that a second baseman makes the different things that he does he has no idea what's going to work and hold up and day to day and all that stuff. So he kind of said today that you know, if you had to do it all over again, he wouldn't do it said he has no regrets because he you know, he went through it. But at this point, he wouldn't do it. So interesting to hear from him as he tries to come back at the age of thirty five Zander Bogart's in camp today. Yeah. You know, what he's more interested in talking about everybody else, but himself he's a free agent after the season at twenty years old he's in his prime. He's one of the best shortstops in the game. To make a big payday, but didn't wanna talk about that. You know, we talked about the World Series winning not compare JD Martinez coming here last year the the bat that they needed and the person the individual that they needed to replace David Ortiz. He also said that his favorite player even before he's MVP. They have last year. And he said that Dustin Pedroia is one of the funniest guys you'd ever been around. And he's rooting for him. He said if he could fly eagles fly by himself on his own one day. So he was very relaxed again, the same thing the interesting thing here is just a final thought. Josh is that the the pitcher is a starting pitcher sale and poor solo and everything member how many innings they threw last year coming out of the bullpen, etc. They've been slowly coming along. So normally they would have their second bullpen today. That's pushed back at day till tomorrow won't make their debut until mid March though, the core outscore and the medical staff keeping an eye on those starting pitchers knows inning. Good to go and ready to go. Let me ask you about another pitcher Dave price. He announced he was changing his number from twenty four to ten which is all well and good. But you know, he's had a a moody relationship if you will with the press over the last several years have we seen any change in his demeanor. No, not really not necessarily. So, you know, I think he's still got that chip on a shoulder or anger towards the media. But everyone else she eats kind of good with now after winning a World Series, especially your teammates to begin with. But then the fans you you wanted to show his love to the fans I talked to pay Martinez today. And he said, wait he said, I'm predicting it right now watch David price is going to get the loudest or one of the loudest ovations on the home opening day at Fenway park. Because everything is good now. That's all he wanted to see price to win a World Series. Make it good now with the fans, and he should be fine. Well, last question rachi a lot of players are up for renewal at the end of this season. And yet as you mentioned a few minutes ago, they're they're not really interested in talking about it at this time is that because they're hoping to prove themselves on the field. Or is there something else that player? No. I think it's I think onomic the Red Sox have some issues as far as trying to get rid of some salary and things like that. So you know, JD Martinez has an opt-out after this year. Mookie Betts did a couple. Years. Jackie Bradley, jR after this year. Believe Bogart's we talked about I think they have a lot of work to do. And I think the kind of China let everything settle see what happens this year. And maybe at some point they'll talk extension with some of those guys and try to get them done before the end of the season, maybe even before the end of spring. But I just think it's it's I don't know maybe they're just cautious in how they go about business here with all these players and trying to get something done. All right, my friend. Thanks very much. We'll talk to you again on Monday afternoon. That's WBZ TV's. Dan roach. Joining us from Fort Myers, Florida where the SOX have gathered for the beginning of spring

"In four eliminate the Astros in five eliminated. The Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. They'd be two hundred win teams in the regular season never faced elimination game. Even with all the issues that at one point in time, you thought they had in the bullpen and that was alleviated by Alex Cora. Using the starters like porcelain sale as you saw closed the game out last night and native all the become a red sock hero with the way that he was used in this postseason and pitched very very effectively even in the extra inning game. What he was called upon after he pitched the first two games out of relief. It's just a remarkable performance and your hammer that point home, TASR fact of sale was not brilliant in the series Kimbrell was not brilliant to this. The series. JD Martinez was not brilliant in this series was brilliant in this series. I mean, look at the the big stars of the Boston Red Sox that if think about and he didn't really get one of those with to sensual series from either one of them are really for the most part of the postseason. But if you look in the World Series, you just didn't at all. And there they were celebrating last night in Los Angeles. Yeah. And you know, look we've seen David price ride. The guy was he in this postseason as opposed that in past previous policies, he stunk this one here. Unbelievable for the Red Sox. Unbelievable. And you got to tip your cap to him. He was spectacular. And and he's proud as a peacock about it. And he should be felt good for price. Yeah. Man. Really? Because he he had it rough dude he had real rough. I mean in the past, you know, but he he looked last night. Seven innings. I believe a seven innings of work three hits a Iran and five stri thrives Shrek outs to walnut walks up tremendous. I mean, you gotta tip your capital guy who really really redeemed himself. He did and was talking to himself himself up on the mound as well. As we saw over. The course of the game last night in Los Angeles. It was just a quintessential price performance. He doesn't throw the ball ninety five ninety six miles an hour anymore. We know that he's had issues with the Red Sox media. The Boston media up there and being touted one point in time. And he's put that in the rear view mirror. And it was great last night, regardless of whatever happens with the rest of his contract and the contract that they signed him to he's not worth it. But they signed it to him nonetheless. You win a World Series for the fourth time in the last fifteen years. The Boston Red Sox are World Series champs. And it's amazing everything that's transpired since their comeback four against the Yankees. How before that? Whatever could go wrong did go wrong. They come back from three games to down in that two thousand four AL CS first team in professional sports history to do that in baseball. And it's a remarkable remarkable comeback. They win the World Series that year, and they've just become aside from their failures past two postseasons, they become the preeminent winner baseball.

Red Sox beat Dodgers to win 4th World Series in 15 years, cap historic season

"The Red Sox clinched the World Series title in game five with a score of five one Red Sox. They took the lead early in the game. And just kept adding on runs, and they're watching it all was WBZ's. Adam Kaufman, he joins us live from Los Angeles. Adam what an incredible series. Yeah. I don't know how long we have. But I I could talk for a year. It was remarkable what you know, what the Red Sox were able to achieve throughout this series throughout the postseason the entire regular season to capital of the way, they did with with another just convincing almost I mean, basically wire-to-wire win here in L A in game five and David price the dominance that he displayed and exuded over the course of the last couple of weeks to flip the narrative of this guy can never win in the playoffs. He can never win as a playoff starter to pitch them into the World Series to help them win the pennant and that game five against Houston. And now not only after winning game two in this series. But just a couple of days ago, but to then win the clincher with seven innings of shutout baseball after allowing a leadoff home run. St. peers a platoon player who was acquired back in July as as someone that was just gonna come in. And hopefully help a little bit homered twice at seven RBI. Three home runs. His last two games. And just be a hero of folklore in Boston sports now World Series MVP. You can't say enough and leading up to tonight the game eighteen innings long. What can you say about that? And then the comeback the next game. It's just all around was really good television and radio and radio. Well, you know, what I mean, never never mind television or radio theater? It was just it was incredible to watch. Whether you were viewing or listening from afar or had the opportunity as we did to be in the stadium. It was in in other worldly experience, you know, you consider that eighteen inning game that went until about four A M eastern lasts seven hours and twenty minutes was the longest game in postseason baseball history. Never mind just the World Series and then to sixteen and a half hours later have to be back there for for first pitch a game four and to fall behind four nothing going into their final three innings, and then just flip the switch as they've done. So many times this year, you know, JD Martinez at a great remark about how he's never been on a team before that had just has the ability to get punched in the face and show up the next day, and we're fine. We're good. And they they did this could have been a whole different series had obviously the Red Sox lose the eighteen. Game. And then don't recover from the four nothing deficit in game. Four all of a sudden it's to to going into game five the ace on the other side Clayton Kershaw who the heck knows how that unfolds, but the Red Sox in many ways, it's it's sort of cliche to say, it's almost mystical to think it, but it it it almost felt like the Red Sox won game five second. They won game four at the dodgers. They were just aflaid and the Red Sox role. Right. And you could see that. Yeah. You could

Red Sox, Alex Cora and Dodger Stadium discussed on Overnight Talk

"Stadium. The Red Sox are now one away from winning the World Series with an incredible late in the game comeback tonight winning game four nine six Red Sox. Adam Kaufman is at Dodger Stadium. He joins us live. Adam what is the mood like there? I I bet it's off the charts. Well, I guess. The mood's not so good. But among the Red Sox fans, and there were thousands of them here. It's funny for game three the atmosphere, and it was an exciting game on both sides. But you could tell it was it was really really heavy dodgers fans, and you'd expect that as the home team. But I mean it felt like ninety five percent to five percent. It was it was really lopsided. You could hear just raucous. Let's go Red Sox chance or let's go Boston chance in this game. Especially late during the comeback. And the Red Sox scored nine runs over the final three games. And even every standing ovations dodgers fans filing out to the point where toward the end of the game almost felt like a Red Sox home game because the the dodgers had just not quit. But we're at a point where they just they couldn't muster anything. They tried in the ninth inning with a couple of runs, but the fans had pretty much at that point. But it was just it was so exciting such a thrilling game. The Red Sox go from dead and lifeless to now being one win away from their fourth championship in a span of fifteen years David price in a surprise. Announced by Alex Cora after the game will be on the mound for game five for for you back east later on today. And we're all looking forward to it. They must. They must have been very tired. After the game the night before. I just can't imagine how they're feeling especially going into tomorrow night or actually tonight now. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of the guys talked about that the fact that you know, you play a not even World Series a postseason record seven hour twenty minute game and have to come right back to the park and play. I think it was sixteen and a half hours later was was the first pitch for game four earlier today here at Dodger Stadium men's so, you know, a lot of the guys after the win come back. They didn't take batting practice before the game. Because Alex cora's said, we're just too tired. We can't do it. And they're not gonna do BP prior to game five either. But guys after the game were saying that you just kinda have to find a way it's a little cliche, but you take whatever take a red bull. And and let's go was what JD Martinez said you have to find a way to discover that energy. It's the World Series. It's it's everything's on the line. And he said he's never been around. And remember, this is this maybe one of the teams MVP's, maybe the American League MVP when all shakes out. We'll see you said he's never been on team before that has. That knack for getting punched in the face and just showing up the next day like everything's, okay. And it doesn't matter and everything's fine. So it really was something to behold watch- watching this game unfold.

Dave Roberts, Cody Bellinger and MVP discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"World Series last night Red Sox went up to all on the dodgers at Fenway park. But don't blame. Dave Roberts in the NFL. Pete Carroll makes seven and a half million dollars. That's double what is general manager makes Sean Payton the saints makes nine million dollars a year. That's triple what is GM makes. But with the dodgers, the general manager Andrew Friedman make seven million dollars a year and the manager Dave Roberts makes one million. So stop blaming him. He wasn't allowed to play his best players last night. Because the guys up stairs run baseball. Everybody wants to did Dave Roberts. Just get dumb. Didn't even all the great moves against Milwaukee. No. He just got dumb and a week know the difference between that game last night is the Red Sox played all their best players and their stars were allowed to be stars. And Mookie Betts star three hits JD Martinez star huge RBI to RBI single. David price star sixth grade innings. Dave Roberts went to his office and said, I can't wait to we're a home run hitting team. I'm gonna pay. Oh, no. You can't play your home run hitters. Well, what do you mean? We were second in baseball and home runs. We led the National League in home runs. But the analytics overruled at upstairs and said, Cody bellinger's not gonna play I want you to think about that. Cody. Ballot ger was the National League championship series MVP. And he is not started for the first two games because he bats left handed. David price is a left hander and the numbers and the projector and the nerds and the analytics and the. Dave Roberts wasn't allowed to play. His stars. Can you imagine telling Mike dantonio the rockets you can't start James harden and play him? Can I play them later? Yeah. Couple minutes late in the game. Why? Well, analytic say, he'll stroke. Can you imagine? Ballot. Check being told by general manager can't play gronk what about in the no no analytic say you cannot play. Gronk. He doesn't match up folks. The dodgers three leading home run hitters. None started their nationally championship series. MVP? Didn't get a start there. Three leading home run hitters got three at bats whole game combined. Come on you want blame? Listen, don't blame the bagel if you're overweight and don't blame traffic if you're late to work leave earlier, eat better. It's ridiculous to keep beating up on these managers. I to me in October stars Trump analytics I want Mantelet ex and David Ortiz and a-rod after the game. We're saying basically, you didn't play Bellinger. What did you expect? Act a neuter their MVP. You can see it in his face the body language. He's got family. He's France Texan.

World Series expert picks: Will Red Sox or Dodgers win it all?

"Teams after I saw every one of them playing person Red Sox Astros, Yankees, Indians brewers dodgers and that order. I absolutely think the Boston Red Sox have a better club that the dodgers. And I think they'll win this in six or seven I agree on the six and seven. I don't see us going to sweep like so many people do and part of it is there's not a lot of experience on both sides against you know, the top tier pitching Manny Machado in. Brian dozer have seen Chris sale at ninety seven ninety two and done some damage against them. And the same thing goes with Clayton Kershaw JD Martinez being in the, you know, the front of the order in owning Kershaw relatively in in eleven at bats. Do you sense that the key to the series is the field period? And who could feel out the other team quicker? Well, I think that's part of it. But in a short series in for me in any any series. It's about the pitching in. I am concerned about Chris sale. I'm not as concerned anymore. As much as I was about Kershaw. He's got the Kershaw. Although he's more of a craftsman. Now, you've got three lefties going for the dodgers you got to in the rotation going for the Red Sox. I'll take my chances with the right handed hitting Boston Red Sox against those three lefties. I think that could be a big big advantage when you are looking at a JD Martinez in the middle of the order, Mookie Betts, Bogaerts Nunez, those guys that hit from the right side. I think they're going to do some damage in Fenway. I think it's gonna be a different game in LA. You know, I I worry about them pitching to die like, Cody Bellinger. For example. I think he had to keep the ball up on him. He's an uppercut swinger. You put the ball down. You may never see it again. I think these are pretty quick pitchers at I think the way they pitched the opposition is going. Is going to determine who winces, and that's not a genius comment. Are they it's all about the pitching, no doubt? And I think the way that the the Red Sox has set it up where they have Chris sale going game one David price game two, and then the unknown so ripper Selo and Nathanael have all the will be coming out of the pen in the first game or two depending on what goes on in. Do you sense it they're they're protecting themselves from a a short start from occur sailing game one? Right. I think that's exactly what they're doing. I don't think I would even though they did it all year long. I don't think I would pick up these back to back. I think they are doing it. Look, I think Alex Cora was the manager of the year. He and bo-, you know, bowl mill with the athletics. I don't say anything that guy does. But sale, you know, just coming back from the hospital probably lost a couple pounds said he couldn't afford to lose place at the game of his life. Can he do twice in a row? I think that can that's why I think the Red Sox are a little bit better team at this point of the year much better during the season. But you know, you gotta give credit for the dodgers. They scrapped themselves back into this. They one and I give him credit. I just don't think I think they're going to get get up managed. I think Alex Cora and the Red Sox front office is gonna do the job. A former staffer the Astros and Mariners currently with clubhouse corner dot com is kind enough to join us here. Cambio tonight. Drew harvard. Kevin Franson, we are previewing Dame one of the World Series tomorrow night at Fenway Red Sox dodgers Clayton Kershaw. Chris sale. We've been talking about the pitching birdie. I do want to get more into the offense on both of these teams. We're talking about a dodger team who set their franchise record two hundred and thirty four home runs this year. And then he had the Red Sox knocked around. The Astros was twenty nine runs in five games. Jackie Bradley, jR, driving and nine in the AFC. Yes. So tell me about the offense for both of these teams. And really who do you think has the biggest advantage? But I still think it's the Red Sox the wildcard for me could be mad Kemp he won't be starting at D H. They have to of course, and us mad count in their order in the middle of the order behind Machado and in front of Brian dosier. They're using dosier as well. It's mad Kemp that kind of scares me on the Red Sox. He's the great unknown. He can hit the gaps. He can hit the ball over the played as well rested. He had a terrific first-half tailed off in the second half. He's the guy that when you put put all the chips down now Matt Kemp may pick him up. So he's a guy that scares me in the line. David freezes quietly under the radar. They have some weapons. No question. We all know what Justin Turner can do we've seen. What Chris Taylor can do. This is a very very good club. You've got a pitch to bell. And you're like I said they've got to keep the ball up. The bed is is make them swing at it. Get away from the uppercut swing. Yes. Of course is dangerous. But on the other side of the ball, Mookie Betts. You know, Mookie Betts when I saw him first off in the Arizona fall league. He was playing second base. He was far enough of the best athlete in the air that year. This guy makes things happen. Then he's followed by Benintendi. And granted he's a left-handed hitter. But he can smack the ball, and how do you pitch to JD? So I think these are very well balanced teams. But I think pitching and Fenway is going to be a little bit too much for the dodgers. And I think they're going to lose at Fenway, maybe two games. And then we'll see what happens from there. Yeah. I think it's huge. If you know, especially the the Red Sox hold serve then they can play around a little bit not play around. But having Mookie come in and not really be afraid of like he's going to cost us. Oh, no. Because when he was there this year and even in the past that you could play. Yes. So much range. We all know that. No question about it holiday. Would you like to pick up a Nathan? The scrapping. You know? How would you like to have a number three starter name Nathan Valdez control the ball a hundred miles an hour who the dodgers had at one point. And now he may win a game against you. I mean, there's so many corks to this when you can get a guy like a ball deep during the season as your number three starter. You know, I just love it. I love it for both teams Verney who's your who's the guy you worry about more at the back end. Is it kenley or kimbrel kimbrel against this team? By the way, one for thirty one guys that are on the in the lineup for the dodgers won for thirty one against him. Well, I would never ever say a bad word about kenley Jansen. Is on his game right now. He scares me. But the Red Sox may put these away before its time believe me, and if they can then kenley Jansen if they can't then kenley Jansen is to be reckoned with the guy is still great. I feel sorry for what he's dealing with. And I think he's gritty gutsy, but you know, kimbrough's no slouch either both. These bullpens are really really strong. These are these are two good teams. I don't think they're the best two teams. I think these are two good teams. What's your thoughts on Manny Machado? And just the way he's been pretty demoss postseason. I am old school my friends. It made me sick to my stomach to see what he did it at first base. Tasers secular. It makes me sick to my stomach to see him going into second day slake that and I think the thing that made me the sickest is when you say hustling is not my Cup of tea on a scout, my friends and the first thing that we fill in. There's three things can this guy play is he better than what we have. And number three. Can you play for us? And for me on my form. No he cannot play for us. There are teams that would love to have him though. Run to him. That's fine. You put that guy in the mid west or in some cities, you put them in San Francisco and watching my hustle watch. What happens for me? It's a way over the top. I didn't like it. I don't like it. And I think it's going to hurt him. I I. I think the one team that everyone talked about is the Phillies in him going to I'm calling because out here. He he killed. Yeah. Try this or New York or any other big market that he's projected to go. What do you think is agents said the reaction of his agent when he read those comments, please. You just saw it. You saw him hustle. You saw last game. He played hustling kept his mouth shut. But you know, what damage is done. He is not the type of guy that I think is gonna win you the pennant. I like us a scrapper much more. Yeah. You can knock the fence down. But you know, it's not all about him. You give me a Justin Turner any day of the week. I'll take that Bernie. I think I'm sorry. Go ahead. Why don't you finish your thought? Go ahead. I think in general this dodgers team is a little bit over the over the top for me. I think pointing to your muscles rounding, you know, your home run your home run trots a bit over the top for me. I was just curious on how fast that switch is flipped when you see a guy like minimum Chato acting this way because we see a pro sports, Bernie talent will usually Trump everything else. Yes it well. And that's why I said there are teams that are going to run to them they wanna badly and again for the clubs that I was with with the Houston Astros with the Seattle Mariners. I don't think we would have taken that type of demonstrative behavior. But the game has changed and you either love it or or get out of it and don't pay any attention. I happen to love it. But I don't have to like what I see from some players believe me ninety nine percent of these guys are much different. They're wonderful guys. And all it takes one guy to show off like that. And give other people a bad name. I didn't like it. I guess that clear. Hey, we got you a prediction with the Red Sox in either six or seven but tomorrow night who is your guy is it sale is occurs show. Or is it somebody else? No Kershaw gets game one. I think Kershaw is pitching very well. I worry about sale I worry about about the hospital the stomach. I don't know if he's less weight. I haven't seen him.

"Real quick. This whole thing with a rose nominees. She is a UFC fighter. The straw champ is traumatized by Conor McGregor bus attack in Brooklyn. And her coach says that she quote doesn't leave her house, and quote, she's super upset and basically left and walked back to the hotel and. Apparently, she's you know. Lost it over this whole thing. She can't. Apparently function can't leave her house. What's up with that? I mean is this crazy way you have to admit, I find it hard to believe really like, so I get it. It was just horrible attack and everything I could see it bothering you for maybe a week or two, but I really don't understand how like months and months have gone by. And you still can't leave your house over at Rowsley considering that weekend. She's fought the fight and still defended her belt against one of the better champions. They are that there wasn't that division. So do you not believe the story? I mean, I think he's lying, but it just seems a little odd that she could just that you could still be gonna jam going and doing different things that is not something that just happened on the street that you know, some random attack happened there. It's Trump doesn't do it agree. I find it odd that you can't do anything else outside up. But now it's Easter on everyone has their. Your gear like laughing at it. Like, you can't even. Laugh at the girl. But I mean, what are we doing here? She fought that weekend. It's been months, and I. You know? It wasn't. I don't want to downgrade anything of something something's bothering somebody. Who am I I'm not standing there in their shoes? But. I mean when you read off the headline, and you read that you make it sound like, you know, Conor McGregor. You know were seeking her out on the Boston like threw it at her her life. You know, there was a lot of people on that bus. He wasn't going after her the whole don't leave. The house thing is just unbelievable. It's a lot. It's a lot for me. It's a lot too much. And she beat that girl. Like mafia said that's two nights later who we all thought might beater that second time. So what is the product think Amir Khan and Paki? Our would be a good fight. You're interested in seeing that because Eddie earned says that kale Brooke and Connor both options to fight back. Yeah. I've not each other. I'd like to see contact. Yeah. I wouldn't mind. Do you think the kid could beat the oh, man? I would never watch it. But I mean, I pack y'all Pfizer just useless. Now. Use mean his last fight. He looked damn good. And his hands were heavy again.

"Swing and a foul back, and it's two in one A long conversation with JD, Martinez during batting practice today He is These obviously developed in one of the best hitters in the game and what he's done over the last couple of seasons is pretty ridiculous terms of. Offensive production but when you talk about a, rare bird you know certain guys out there like. Joey Votto JD Martinez kind of kind of falls into that. Grouping of their approach to the game in, the hitting is it's it's different than other players Swing foul tip at the plate and it's to on Martinez And what they what they're looking to accomplish It's it's it's defined differently, than the majority of plays where you. Know it's, easy. To throw around the process you, know distinct. But these guys like JD Martinez Joey Votto they are so immersed in. The process that there really isn't anything else. And there isn't emotions of op and low it's just this constant, come out work every day Here's the. To pitch hold goes pitch down a way throw from the knees by Rommel's in the.

No now we don't we yes we did we single shot Evan That's what it was six one seven. Seven seven nine seven, ninety three seven, we're talking, about baseball. And really nothing else we haven't. Talked about anything else at all but what my point was so you came back here we talked about JD Martinez. In I was trying to educate you on Friday night he, made a. Very very. Nice catch Alex spirited outstanding story you should go check it out. You probably know. On the defensive on how, they view JD Martinez. As, defender by JD Martinez charities on? The car, Dale Arnold on the, call JD Martinez he did in Dale wasn't lying it was it was his best catch as a member of the Red. Sox he's well positioned he can make the play just. Doesn't have ranged right isn't that kind of the, summer I mean he's a big. Guy but he. He's movie seem to get good jumps and he has a. Pretty good arm and he has an accurate on he has a ton of outfield it says last. Year but when you talk about the. Two. Nights ago JD. Martinez? Runs, into a. Wall everybody knows, this Evan but since avenue sitting. Here I will tell him he runs into a wall. He stays in the game but it was one, of these he caught the ball. Full steam boom Plants himself from, the walk, in cussin' no, we don't think so? But yesterday he was not in the. Lineup and Alex Cora general soreness general soreness by soon as JD Martinez not in the lineup you like oh my goodness. What am I gonna we'll find out general swell having this there is a reason, why. You're here and that is, to make sure that we get about ten thirty. In the morning we get, to see JD Martinez is going. To be in the lineup or, not So but JD Martinez The thought of him not being in the lineup is should should makes me shake Evan drellich in the. Red Sox fan core is he the? Most, valuable red sock No is always a fun game I know, well look if I if. I had an MVP vote I'm giving it to. Mookie Betts over JD Martinez and I know by, argument and, you take out? One guy you take out of this take out of this off this roster right now the one guy who take out of the roster you, say you know? What you have? A much much more? Difficult time or. More difficult. Time of, winning the whole thing without, this guy than. Any other guy who, was is, it Mucci, is it JD is it Chris.

"Opt out so we can opt out after next season so listen to this he actually was talking about the contract and about Boston The guy you want to talk to right there Maybe Long, long-term Absolutely What has to be discussed. Later but, yeah I, mean I like my time there. Now it's been fun so. Far so, honestly why? Not Yeah I like the front. Office I, like you, know the the. Managers I like. Everything you know everything the way its. Run I think, it's Trending in a really. Good way and What am I saying see would my stay here seems to like saying everything that the people are, bitching that Kyrie Irving, apparently won't, say even though career says think thing I love the front office Boilerplate so, here's the thing I, don't know, if you saw the visual Did you see the video did you notice who is? Standing right beside him. Off to the left that would be Scott Did you see the look on his face like It's. Like, Scrooge mcduck and Mr. burns wrapped into one. Yeah he knows. JD Martinez is going to kill. It is gonna he's gonna make so much money it's like everything working out perfectly for him. Because he even even when you see these stats so what I think your favorite Twitter account and. Was a Boston sports info or something like that they put something out there that said they gave, all of JD Martinez his stats from last year two thousand seventeen. All star break to now and it's unbelievable numbers, it's how good he is being and no wonder Scott Boris is just sitting there hovering and just like taking it all in because. Everybody. Knows that Scott Boras is gonna get done okay so if you're the Red Sox and you know that once, he gets to free agency and he, opts out he's going to be worth a killing especially when you. Watch what Bryce Harper gets in. This. Off season I'm not saying. You do it now everybody's watching Bryce. Opera Mookie Betts is watching Bryce Harper JD? Martinez Bryce Harper. Which what. You, do. Is in this off season before he gets to that last year that. Opt, out year that's when you sit down with. Him and you. But you've got to be willing. To know that you've got to be willing to go to that that it's gonna be in. Free agency puts you prevent other teams from getting into the mix I isn't everybody sold on this. Guy I know I know it's ninety eight games or whatever but you're right there's a track record, of the last two his biggest problem is he was a late. Bloomer he figured it out yeah figured out how, to get the artificial it took him a while and so there's a a shorter resume than there is with some of these other. Guys. But to me I sold yeah he's so so he so psychotic too it's so funny like you when you, hear guys talking about like other players, and like Tom Brady he's just so focused he does eat sleep. Drink football that's all he does. He's got the finger from Louis. Thank you yeah yeah f you to But in, that and you have. Another one low he's, he's you. Thought I was calling. Lou three d. blue so so. What was. The, bushy. None LB five He's on the phone Manton would be would, be like if. He were out I love help he's the best no but you, know he's he actually it's funny because you talked about the difference, in appearance perception versus reality you have Bryce Harper, the, way he looks the way his mannerisms and. You got j. d. like watch JD. Martinez after any. Game whether he plays good or whether he plays bad look what he's. Wearing little. Look at. His demeanor. Look at the. Way he answers it it is perfect the guy is just really kind of figured it out and he's authentic, he is he is he is he doesn't. Care it doesn't care about anything other than just, hitting, the, frigging baseball and he he's fit in here to. Boston. Even though there's no real? Outward. Personality beyond Yeah. And it seems. To it seems to work I think the Red Sox have got to really consider this India season and they, might not have a choice would you mean I don't think we'll see what how choice they can let it go another year and then he's..

"You watch him and you watch how feeble he has looked the two platinum sombreros i mean how you go for seven with five strikeouts in a game after you just recently struck out five times in a game and look as bad as he did that is mind boggling to me mind bogg missing fastballs gary sanchez hitting the ball hard at times just in a little bit of a funk and of course both players come out of it last night against david price who left the game due to some numbness in his left hand or some weird feeling his left hand there but the yanks get to him and he's always disappointing anyway but gary sanchez the offense come alive tanaka was not as good as you had hoped he almost blew that big lead but he did not give it the grand slam jd martinez which brought the red sox closer but eventually the yanks would pull away anyway in that one and i thought it was a must have game for the eggs i could not afford after the way they got embarrassed in the first game of that series after the way they look they lost three out of four to baltimore and the way that they have started the season with all the expectations and the way they looked they needed to win that game last night and they did they will try again tonight to win the series year against the red sox early on the season the first of many between these two teams and now with the bad blood it makes it even more of a watch your intrigued to see what's going on you get sonny gray on the mound tonight for the yanks to see what he can do after a decent start last time out against the orioles and sony gray and rick poor solo in game three of that all important series yankees coming in at six and six red sox at nine in two so that'll be fun to watch and see if there's any more you know extracurricular stuff going on between those two teams but it's any time those teams play it special especially with the expectations that they both had come in to the year this year now with the brawl now there's legit bad blood not only between the players but between the.

"I think it was just a it came out of some i think frustration on my end that i felt like i had done a disservice to any of the guys that i it with over the years that we focus so much on the mechanical stuff for some years because it really it was what helped me get to the big leagues you know after seven years in independent ball i six i guess we made some swing changes much like jd martinez talks about helped him really kind of breakthrough and become the player that he is today and it takes a you know a lot of a lot of courage and and selfawareness to do what he did and i think other guys have done it to you look at josh donaldson jose bautista chris taylor there's a bunch of them and again those guys were all really good hitters before they became great hitters so i was in the cage you know last winter and one of the one of the guys that had hit with us you know a young kid i know that had been with us for a long time with bobby and i was you know working so much on mechanics that you know we went to do flips and i flip them a couple of balls he like capital i'm telling in math and i said patrick what you're doing what what do you mean where your thoughts oh and i was like we'll make an adjustment and so we got mad at him at first and then i got mad at myself right after because i felt like i was leaving some information that it helped me get to the point where i was where i was able to make those swing changes i was leaving that out for a lot of guys so i figured it was time to get it all on paper so we won't be a hitter i hate to do a selfless plug but it's available at.

"Mookie betts who stunk last year i think compared to the expectations that were put on his shoulders and like two seventy it's not the worst in the world but he goes one for seventy got caught stealing beefed up andrew benintendi is hitless and while hanley ramirez had a couple of hits last night he striking out a lot and three is the worst part of the new and hopefully improved boston red sox offense jd martinez who had no home runs in spring training it was a rough rough watch could make contact and foul off the ball other on thursday or friday night he is hitless in six at bats he has struck out three times i guess he's gotten to walks but you brought in jd martinez this offseason thinking that this would be the influx of offense necessary for the boston red sox at the very least score i dunno more than four runs a game because like when you're scoring four runs and you've got chris sale or you've got david price pitching the way they've pitched open at the year but you could use a little more run support jd martinez i didn't think very highly of the signing when it happened i know that he's had some really good seasons especially last year with arizona and going back to his time in detroit after the astros cut him i mean he really did turn his career around but i'm not expecting really a whole lot at jd martinez and the start that were off to maybe i should be maybe i should have an expected a little bit less again we're two games in to the red sox season i'm being very over reactionary right now phil like it's easy to do two games into the season i just feel like the team feels a whole lot like they did last year there are some good things chris sale looks fantastic nine strikeouts six innings pitched ninety two pitches three walks here's the thing about chris sale that's so good not that he can just wing it and not that he has all that velocity it's not even that he's a great pitcher that he's quick god can can we get more pitchers to get to the plate to get to home plate the way that chris sale does so that i don't have to watch three and a.
