"Baseball games back in MLB 2021, especially if you get to October you need as many guys, you can kind of in that boat phone well and you need to run up against a team that is not going to be as particular when they're swinging at pitches. Meaning you need to face teams that are going going to be more aggressive because I found in watching these games that dead When you have hard throwers out of the bullpen, if you run up against the line up that it's going to take pictures and has no problem hitting with two strikes. Those are the teams that usually have success, waiting out and throwers in the bullpen. Yeah, absolutely. And that's one of the good things about the Red Sox offense, when they're going. Well, is that, you know, they can beat good teams. They can be good, pitching staffs. And you know, these are actually laborers. They're just even have, they're going to have to get back to pounding. The strike zone, kind of trusting the stuff. I've seen a lot of nibbling going on lately and Barnes just has to get back to where he was early. And when he was just kind of go after guys, and ladies looked kind of more like the old pre 2021 Matt Barnes where he's nibbling around and tracks, you know, he's got a great curveball. But God, you got a ninety-six ninety-seven, my yes, humans the basketball. Yeah, and it had to be aggressive especially if it drives me crazy. Try guys are nibbling at the bottom of the order and I've seen birth. Sounds like walking number nine, enter cuz he's throwing too many curveballs. When you have like a, you know, the the top of the order coming up, just don't do that. Don't slow their baths down, you know, just he involved in the meat of the order. Just just use your fast football. And I think that's with Barnes need to do is he just needs to get back to being aggressive and trusting that, that could fast-forward, he has, how does a pitching rotation lineup for this week with the Yankees? I haven't taken. Yeah, they're going to go the, it's listed to the TV only because they're going out. And, and of all the in the first in a doubleheader, what they hadn't for some reason, they haven't disclosed, which order they're going to be in yet. So it's going to be how kind of all the in some order against, you know, then they're going to go with pivetta in the Wednesday game in New York. Then you have sailed back out there Friday against Texas and Iran Saturday. So it shapes have to be a pretty good week for the Red Sox. Pitching wise at these guys can kind of do what they should do. I think it's going to be really exciting to age. Enter how pitch in Yankee Stadium and of all the it's just been an absolute Yankee killer track since since he joined the Red Sox. I mean he just every time he pitches against them pretty much a 01 run. So I think there is a good shape to at the very least split that double-headed on Tuesday, which is what they need to do. They don't need to sweep and they just need to split it and then hopefully when they came on on Wednesday get out of there and win two out of three months. Yeah. TBD against Gil and then TBD against Montgomery in The nightcap on Tuesday. And then Wednesday, Nick pivetta goes off keys are still TBD on that..

Talk to you again. It's been a long time. You were the first guests on my iteration of the Red Sox, beat podcast, and I do appreciate it way back. When a lot has changed for the Red Sox since we last spoke, most prominently the return of their race. Chris Sale on Saturday, in the 16 to, to romp the Red Sox offense, took a lot of the pressure off off Chris Sale. Number 41, making it pretty easy for him. But still sale looked very sharp five innings, six hits and I don't know about you. He allowed two runs in the five innings, but the most impactful. Something about Saturday, the eight strikeouts and no walks that to me, tells me that he had really good control and command of all of his pictures. Yeah. It was really encouraging him to come in and after not pitching in a major league game for two years and pitched with with that kind of control. And you know, everybody else was was kept, being was kind of being patient bit and wondering how he would be. When he when he first got back and say I was like man this isn't just I'm not just going to ease into this. This is kind of, this is Go Time, so he's been getting ready for this but you know, you know, his work ethic, nobody works harder, nobody's more determined. And you know, he just, he looks better to, he got into great shape, he put on a little pigs, believe it or not. I put on a little bit of weight, you know, during this will it stay here will stay. That's what I wonder where the guy with the physique and a metabolism like Chris Sale, you know, he puts Wait on and hopefully in the right places and in the right ways, but the idea is so that he has more endurance, more strength toward the end of the season. Now, fortunately for him, his Seasons, not going to be very long. This is really for him. Like, what twenty twenty was for most of Major League, Baseball, a Sprint. So it's a Sprint to the Finish. Is that really the mentality? He's taken. Yeah, I think so. I think home and, and look, this is huge for the Red Sox to have him back at completely changes. The complexion and a team, you know, you look at yesterday and water Rodriguez, right? Pictures are great game and now suddenly, he's the number two starter and he looks a whole lot better. And then, number two. Slapping. This is a one, Nathan eovaldi. Looks a lot better is a free than he does is a two and then you have Tanner how they're young exciting prospect.

"Talking to these guys. What did you find was your first impression about the negro leagues from having talked with them. What did you come away with. As far as an impression of the sport and of the game itself played by the african american players The first impression that i came away with was that these guys played essentially major league baseball without playing in the major leagues. They were making buyers. Many of these guys were better than major league baseball players but they were shut out from playing in the major and then my other biggest takeaway is probably the fact that there was no documentation or recognition of these guys of their careers and that that really Kind of stood out to me. What struck me is is that i didn't realize how big the negro leagues were. And maybe you can give us some insight about how big they were and how important it was to the african culture in other words the black people in this country. That blacks were playing the national pastime. Yeah it was. It was huge business. I mean it was one of the top businesses among blacks during The period of the negro leagues starting in nineteen twenty going to the early sixty. In addition to the the main negro themselves do where hundreds of regional and semi pro teams scattered around the country which were also big business is really just. It brought the whole community together. People dress up in their nicest clothes. Some of these games would attract fifteen twenty. Thirty thousand people The negro league east west all star games often attracted more people than major league. All star game so yeah it was. It was a huge deal for for the community at the time and also lends itself because during that period of time. Baseball always had great personalities. Great stories and as you've talked to these players that played in the negro leagues. What are some of your favorite stories that you've heard from them out There's so many spoken with probably two or three hundred guys Unfortunately many of the stories. I've heard are not. I don't wanna say favorite stories because they kind of have you know. sad seems to them or or negative aspects to where they were chased out of town or their bus broke down. And you know nobody helped them out but there are some pretty cool stories about guys You know this isn't one particular story but many of the guys have spoken with where sixteen seventeen years old and just hopped on a buff and next thing. I knew they were playing professional baseball. One of my buddies out here in los angeles. Nee dancy he was sitting in the stands when he was about thirteen or fourteen years old watching his older brother play on the memphis red sox and all of a sudden they just needed somebody to come in and fill in so he went from never having really played baseball before to playing on the memphis. Red sox and the negro league At the still in player for one game and several months later ended up going out on the road and playing with methods red sox a teenager and several years later he rejoined into the negro league. Play two years with the kansas city. Monarchs playing in one of the east west all star games where he was a starter and i think he was. Mvp of the game as well so pretty pretty crazy. How guy just became a professional baseball player from sitting in the stands to playing the game right then and there cam. Did you get an impression. And i've got this when talking over the years to a couple of the negro league players that they were enamored with the movie about bingo on traveling all star team of african american black players. Have you gotten any impression for many of them about how they felt the way the game and also the neighbor league baseball player was portrayed in the movie. You know. I don't bring that movie up All that much but a lot of guys look at that movie and they say you know like we were. We were serious team. The negro league was not a joke. yes. There was a little bit of clowning around on the indianapolis clowns baseball team. Which is kind of like what that movie was modeled after the indianapolis concert. Kind of the harlem globetrotters But they also played a very good high-quality baseball as well so guys look at that and say hey look this is a little bit of not an embarrassment but an exaggeration and it kind of dragged down the credibility of the league. I guess you could sex. What sense of personal satisfaction do you get and having done this for a long period of time and bringing to the forefront the history of negro league baseball on its players. i really enjoy When people reach out to me. Or i get to tell somebody about the negro league and they don't know anything about it and next thing. I know they're googling negro league they wanna meet a player or player and their cities coming out to their school to talk. I really just enjoy Seeing people learn And educate themselves about this essentially forgotten part of history in baseball history. One of the things that i sense in talking to the negro baseball players that i've interviewed is that i'd never once have. I heard any anger about their exclusion for major league baseball. I guess be a an acceptance of. That's the way it was at that particular point. You've talked to money more than i have. What sense do you get about how they feel about that period of time you know. It really varies based on the player many players are just grateful that they were able to participate in the negro league play professional baseball for several years but many of the players also went on and after their negro league days went on and played in the minor leagues for dozens of years or three or four years or maybe even half a season and then they got cut so there are. There are many guys that i've spoken with. That played in. The negro league went onto the minors and then played in triple a for three or four years and it just never able to make that break into the majors. A lot of those guys are are a little bit bitter at that fact knowing that there were guys that weren't as as them that made it up even if it was just a few days and they just never did. We only have a little bit over a minute. Left one has been the reaction. What reaction have you gotten over the. Hbo's real sports story on you. I've had a lot of people. Send me facebook. Linked in messages tweets all sorts of stuff. i've had a few relatives of player contact me which is actually led to a few new players being tracked down that i've gotten in touch with. We're actually work. I'm working on getting attention for one of the former players dot whose son reached out to me after the initial real sports episode aired. So i think that's the biggest Thing that's happened so far but yeah just a lot of good outreach. people. I'm asking about the degray league getting different players around the country to come in and talk at schools and organizations Overall just like a lot more awareness to the streets players and and to what's going on with the living players cam. I wanna thank you. Not only for what you're doing but bringing into to the forefront so people can understand and can appreciate this particular part of not only baseball history sports history as well. I know there's going to be a movie that's gonna come out. I can hardly wait to see it.

"I mean could throw a million miles an hour, but how often did the throw end up up the third-base line and strength, you know, this is Jamie j. His real strength was run prevention. He could cover as much ground in center field as any outfielder center fielder I've ever seen. It's been way and that includes Fred Lynn. That includes any black one, and a mookie, whoever the Red Sox have had in that, I've never seen a player cover as much territory, as J D J. And when he left look, he wasn't going to, you know, put the lights off. On fire with his Bat, but he, I wondered how the Red Sox were going to replace him defensively and they haven't missed a beat exactly. And, you know, I think a lot of that is just how good Renfro spending a field. And we know right field and finalize, maybe as a center fielder, exactly may be equally as important in sent as the center field. But yeah, because his defense is so good. I think it's Justified, allow to allow, Alex Cora to play them against right-handed pitching because he's number still, aren't that good? He said and 2:40 with a 677 o p s against right-handed pitching. So that's a well below-average, LPS against right-handed pitching and they keep playing them every day and I understand they think he's their best option and he helped me, I still think you can make the argument that he should probably not be playing as often as long as against right-handed pitching but they found a nice little left. Right situation in the lineup where he protects Devers, if they want to bring in a left, a left-hander to face never as well. You know, wage, Be bad, a rule. Guess what? You're going to Face Hunter renfroe next and he's one of the best of the game against lefties. So I understand it more than I thought I would. I think there's something to be said for the consistency in the Outfield and the consistency defensively to put the same line about it every night. I think that's a bigger factor in Alex, Cora's run prevention, philosophy in, in the Outfield than it is down, right? Left match up at the plate. I really do. Yeah, I spent let me just make this quick Point especially when you have a picture and staff that gives up a a lot of fly balls and be still lights up here.

"The route that they were going to go this time. But what has happened to answer your question is it actually has worked out that they wage. The best version of these guys. Martinez-perez Garrett, Richards, Nick pivetta, those sort of guide, Nathan, eovaldi going guy. They haven't got the best version as we sit here is Eduardo Rodriguez, but I'm not overly concerned about him. So I think that's where it begins and ends. And, you know, they built a pretty interesting team around them and then you have the foundation, guys, the bogarted em in Martinez, which is utterly important. But you know, I I want you to go back to, you know, people ask about, you know, we have fans in the stands now and we have an interest in the office team. Remember back in 2013, you went along for that ride with us. Yep. And in people forget that, it took a long time for people to buy into that team because the Bruins were, you were on the Bruins, beat the Bruins were red-hot, right? Everyone was about the Bruins and the Cup Final. Yep, nearly Cup finals. And then believe it or not song. You had the Aaron Hernandez trial which sucked the air out of everything at the time and the Red Sox get off to this could start. But before, like it was praying. I think authors the people bought in. I think, what this is done is that as we sit here as they finally allows fans in the stands, people came back and said, okay, you know, we can get a walk around this team and by the way, the other teams are going against, we're not really overly scared about. So I mean, all I know it covered a lot in that question, but, you know, is a lot to come down to do that. You know, you know what, you know what best podcasts are Rob. Let me guess. I mean, Phil you again. Okay. Thank you. My opinion. Best podcasts are when you can eavesdrop in on a conversation. So if somebody goes off on a tangent 456 minutes, yeah, the conversation, right? It's not an interview not should never be interviewed by birth. Play. Here's a quick aside. Yeah. Plus over your left shoulder. Yeah. Right. The two copies still in existence chasing signed off. So I do have a question about this. All right. And I look at this, what went into the artwork on the cob, I hated the artwork. I hated. I'm not a fan of this because it's clearly. It's a, it's a real image. That's a place Soriano. Whoever that is leaping in the air lesson tracks. I mean, I think I knew you back then, right? 2003, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So I was a little.

"Once you made the decision that you couldn't afford a roll a dice, bookkeeping you thought you were going to lose them for free agency and then you see some of them. Where was he made for? You know, he traded Brandon Workman and he Hembree at the deadline last year and both those guys have done absolutely nothing since they left and he got Nick pivetta off Connor C bolt is a prospect. The righty Prospect of preventa has been probably their their best pitcher so far this year. Biggest surprise? I mean it's about, yeah, tremendous surprise because this game it under Jeep for years in Philadelphia and he was the quintessential guy, maybe just needed a change of scenery and he's really brought into the Red Sox brought brought into their pitching philosophy and you know it looks like a great trade in the funny thing is now they have work went back and their minor league system after the the Cubs released him. So now now maybe even get work revash, he traded off. You know, basically this trade was was a huge home run. No matter what happens from here and some of the movie, you know, you got Garrett Richards, this offseason. He had a rocky start. His first floor start, he's been dead. On ever since they see why they made that move. Kiki Hernandez. Sign him as a free agent. You kind of see what the energy. He brings on a daily basis. Hunter Renfrow, offensive and inconsistent employers with 50 fences right there. I mean, he's yeah. Well, he, he was filling huge shoes defensively for jbj and, you know, I had a chance here in Cincinnati to see some of the national wage action jbj. Just came through Cincinnati over the weekend and he can still track the ball better than any center fielder I've ever seen. So Renfro to be able to come into those shoes in Boston and, and play the way he has defensively. He's just been a huge boost. Yeah. And, you know, tracks right field or Fenway is different to offer. You need a, you know somebody who's a center fielder caliber to cover all that ground. He's done a great job, not just with the range but his arm is just impressive. I didn't know he had that good of an arm. So you know, that was another thing. That's you paid, 3 million dollars for this guy. So he's he stood Pine Bloom did some bargain shopping and you know it's it's paid dividends already even marching Perez the Box rotation you know a lot of people thought they were going to pick up his six point. I think was a 6.75 million dollar option at the end of the year, they declined that option then re-signed him for for milk. Got about a 3 and 1/2 years right now. So he's just made some shrewd moves here and he's just kind of you know this isn't as he put it in the offseason, this isn't a go-for-broke here for the Red Sox. This is a year to sort of rebuild the foundation adds depth both to the minor league system. A little bit. If you can try to compete at the major league level at the same time and they've done that. Do I think this team is going to win the World Series? You know, I don't think so but they're going to be competitive which is all you can really ask for especially after last year the bats have to stay hottie. And, I mean, as good as they have been and, you know, they're right at the top of the Major Leagues with. I believe after Sunday's actions, 65, or Runs how about this stat? And, you know, I love the work that the Red Sox PR does in compiling these. And this props out to Justin long big, Justin long way off the Red Sox are out, homering their opponents, 63 to 34 + 29. That's the largest difference in MLB..

"He had he was super s t and regained his timing and all of a sudden was catching stuff out in front and driving it in the air again. He said he didn't change his swing. He just got his timing back and I think that the same was kind of true Devers where he'll yep. There's been a bit of a progression and now you're seeing his hands work some of the magic that they normally do where there's a pitch down in a way and he's able to still kind of scoop it up in flick it off of the wall and Burn Center. So I think that in all likelihood is fine. I think it's a little bit premature to say that you know, Alex Cora's absence is what has him is what has led to his life starts of the Season, you know, there's there are other voices around Devers who have a long history with them and can get a lot out of him. For instance Carlos fabulous who was his minor league manager and who he's very close time is around and someone who can get on who can get on Dever and in I just think for me it was the layoffs and regaining the timing and I think you're starting to see that came around a little bit. So I would say withhold judgment there about whether or not this is chicken and egg with the with Cora endeavors. By the last one for the at least as of now still married Alex fear since he found his wedding ring the thought that they're going to be a couple more trade in one more trade. It's some point I would think that means and especially Alex and 50 Ms. Is heading towards a 300 winning percentage for the year. We're going to see some kids where we're going to be the guys come up in a shortened season and and try to at least get their feet wet and then just a moment. I'm going to introduce from spring training interviews. I did with DJ Chatham and Jared Duran cuz I want them to get a sense of who somebody's kids are so I'm warning you in advance when I sign off with you I'll be staying here we go. Here's the interview coming up next. So who do you think is coming up at some point? And who are you most excited to see? I don't think Duran is going to be coming up this year for the simple reason that he is he was drafted in 2018, which means that which means that he doesn't have to be added to the main roster for purposes of protecting him for the Rule 5 from the Rule draft until after 20 21 and the Red Sox value those forty men spots a lot. So I think that I also think that he's been dead amazing down in Pawtucket. Probably the most exciting single player down there, but I think that you know, it's a kind of they they don't know exactly what they can take care of Pawtucket is a development environment. He was someone who was going to open this year probably in double-a and the fact that he's hitting well right now in in that setting doesn't, you know doesn't negate that so I want to bump up a guy the major leagues and start his you know, big-league service clock and take about 40 minutes lot when he probably has more development time in front of him opening next year in AAA. I think that birth It makes sense to add the guys who have already been added to the 40-man roster and give them their first exposure to the big leagues. So I would I think that there's a pretty good likelihood that we'll be seeing the likes of Bobby dalbec and CJ Chatham is another one who who certainly makes sense at some point Tanner Houck will have to be added the 40-man roster after this season. So he's another one who would make sense as an addition. But you know the reality is that the Red Sox also want to see what they can get from guys who they're bringing into their Organization for the first time so as much as the Home Depot guys have a certain familiarity and there's an expectation of seeing them before too long. It might be, you know, it might be guys who are from out of the outside of the organization. You're seeing the Robert stock Dylan covers of the world making their way up and down in order to get some some opportunities. Nick pivetta is certainly someone who will be seeing what in the Red Sox rotation at some point moving forward so dead. It's it's a little bit difficult to say exactly which direction they're going to go in. I mean, I think that they're most important audition is probably with pictures of this point. So, I would say that you know, how is the most familiar name that we're likely that were likely to see before too long. But yeah again, I think that all back in. Back in Chatham given that they're already dead forty man roster. It makes sense to give them their first exposure to the big leagues at some point this year. You know, what you changed my mind. I'm going to do the Segway to chat him and Hulk that those are the interviews will Bush instead you absolutely changed my mind on that. So we are on the Fly reprogramming the podcast courtesy of death Masterson himself out. And stuff. Hey buddy, as always great job information. I'm so glad that you and your boys and everybody their computer household or surviving if not thriving keep up your wonderful work for the globe and everything else that you're doing so great to catch. Yep. I really appreciate you my friend. It's terrific to hear from you Josh and best to you and your life and you know, hope that guys find you know, find find pleasure in in catching the vase in watching our broadcast of a pretty amazing baseball out there while keeping another eye on less inspired baseball out here. Well, I appreciate you buddy. And without further Ado here. It's been our reworked double interview. We're going to do Chatham and Hulk first piece of business is how often is your last name butchered pretty much every time for people that don't I don't know me for the record. Let's hear it, it's Hulk. Thank you. Okay, I get huke Hawk. I mean, I'm sure I've gotten a few other random ones here and there but but yeah, it's most of the time I would say it's pronounced wrong. Okay, so not for nothing. This is just me and I hardly know you but hawk sounds cool. Did you ever wish it was Hawk instead of Health birth? Never really thought about that like Tony Hawk, you know. Oh, yeah, I mean like definitely like people like whenever I was younger, they're like, oh Tony like Tanner Hawk. I was like, no it's how but yeah. I remember really thought of it. What what's the derivation of it was to the lineage? What's your problem? I'm not sure my dad was adopted. Oh, so I don't know that side of the family my mom's last name or was bailing before how so I'm not really sure the the family tree of that as well. But yeah, you haven't done like 23andMe yet or wage. I thought about doing it in the past. I just never got around to doing it. I thought it'd be cool definitely but it's one of those things maybe in the future. I'll definitely do it and see what I am sure you are right now obviously is a Hotshot pitching Prospect and I guess the question is what age did you realize that was your thing? And what did you leave behind to go Full Throttle on this page? Oh, I mean my earliest memories are from baseball. My mom's favorite story to tell is weird playing t-ball in the town next month and I came running down field crying and it was because all the other kids were playing in the dirt eating the grass like just.

"Luck, you know, we are all set to grab them. But darn those thoughts came in and stole our Thunder. Hey, since you mentioned work when I got to kind of work backwards here and talk about the one trade that has been made at the time of the taping of the podcast the Phillies and the Reds game. Make a deal and four workmen, you know it all kind of comes full circle, right? Because the Phillies tried thirteen years ago to draft. I mean goes off to the University of Texas and said the Red Sox end up with them off. He went through World Series at great. So now he's a Philly and it's kind of weird and hilarious and or sad that, you know, you're trying to tell Phillies fan. Oh my god, the guy you're getting you start rattling off the stats the 123 opponents batting average, you know, you can't touch this guy and then you see him give up seven hits in his personal eleven attack Iraq, you know a lot of it on Sunday Night Baseball so it's like well, okay, so maybe not Workman. Sorry about that and then all of a sudden he temporary for president is the early returns in that trade cuz he comes in their office and wiped out everybody in Atlanta. And you know, want to remind people while the last act for Heath Hembree is the Boston Red Sox and he couldn't get anybody out. I mean that exact same from the Phillies game. Okay Mount Harper took me but he couldn't I mean so what a weird couple of guys to go Philly and do what they've done almost in Reverse. But when we look back on this train a couple of years from now even five years from now Alex, I guess if you want to extrapolate going out Nick pivetta coming in. I mean at the Cornerstone peace or hoping that this is a change of scenery guy. I guess the question here is will work commitment work will Henry work in Philly, but moreover what prevented going to be for the rest. Yeah, great questions all and made more complicated especially in the case of workmen by the fact that this is the ultimate season of short samples right where you know, there isn't that much of a chance to overcome those first five persons because there's only so much left of the regular season. I think that Workman is one of the is one of the most kind of tough-minded pictures that I've been ever seen so I would think that he has a pretty good chance of finding his way back those who have you know, there have been a number of times when when his Red Sox Epitaph was written and where he kind of found a way to be really valuable in different ways, depending on what his stuff was. He just he he is too stubborn not to figure out a way to be able to maximize his abilities and his pitch makes Still Remains that of a guy who can who should be able to to help make the Phillies full-time better than it's been but you never know. I mean transitions are hard no matter who you are and yep. It's you know, you don't know exactly what's going to happen. When you ask us to change organizations for the first time. You know, I think that the same is true of Henry he can certainly be an upgrade yet or not. He will be over the course of short season at this short sample of the rest season. We'll see pivetta is a great question because he's been a riddle that a lot of that is kind of puzzling a lot of people throughout baseball for quite some time. He's someone who's stuff grades out, you know on it just like if you had if you were just to design pitches in a vacuum right in like look at what he has a guy with a four-seamer and curveball and slider and changeup. Like he's this is a guy who's stuff should make him a really good starter like, you know, maybe like maybe a mid-rotation store or some people think that the pure stuff is better than that, but obviously he's underperformed that by a law by a huge margin 5.5 era over the course of his career nineteen and thirty record even wage Struck out a number of guys in his time the Phillies in his time with the Phillies. So it's a pretty interesting gamble by the Red Sox on poveda to figure out whether or not they can tap into talent and I said Philly knew exactly what they wanted from an analytics standpoint Philly new the same stuff that the Red Sox are going to try to convince pivetta to do now that he's in the new organization to it. So it'll be awfully interesting to see whether or not the Red Sox are able to do that. But they did a nice job hedging their bets by getting a legitimate Prospect and Connor sebald who does a couple evaluators. I talked to Thursday is like a a solid bet to be a back-end starter. And you know, it's funny. I'm remembering the preventive just a little bit from my time with the med Palace because you know, we would see him. How we grew up in Canada, idolizing Roy Halladay and you know kind of wanted to be holiday and Phillies rookie seminar HELOC heard next to where holiday used to always be and you know, they got friendly with each other and this guy, you know was really had the arrow points of North and was going to just become the next holiday and then you look up and in 2017 is he already took off so too and it was kind of handling himself and I hate to tell stories out of school. I wasn't there but the kind of guy that was swaggering around like he actually had an era of 2.06 months and not 6.02. So change of scenery guy yet. But I guess I'm hoping for the Red Sox think this is a guy who's kind of done some deep Dives and some deep thinking about how his conduct business and maybe be humbled a little bit. So I'm hoping it all goes great one one more for you real quick before I let you lose. I do want to talk a little bit about birth. He'd ever because since we're talking a little armchair psychology right now the EZ play it seems like it's just to say, oh he must miss out for it so much and we're hearing that over and over and over. You know, the two anthems e r j d Martinez mrs. His video and Rafael Devers. Mrs. Alex Cora, so I know Devers is chasing a lot more. I know the numbers are down and opiates like 6:40. I mean, that's just not you know, that's what I would have expected that of aru's and said that efforts right? So how much validity is there to he misses the security blanket off line is without the blanket here with Cora being gone, or is it just not a great year yet for Devers plain and simple the same guy that did in the home or until it's 25th game a year ago. I don't wouldn't say that this mirror is what happened in 2019 because in 2019, he was actually super disciplined in the first month of Season even though he wasn't hitting for any power. He was doing a really good job of pitch recognition is just hitting everything on the ground. Then he started hitting things in the air and they went really far. I think that in the last in the last few days, you've seen Devers start to really hit quite well and to me I think that there are a number of guys throughout baseball who have seen to me like they've been a couple of weeks behind in terms of their timing at the plate like they've just been late on pitches that they normally catch out in front of Alex Verdugo talked about this a little bit where he was hitting everything into the ground for the first his first eight games of the season and all of a sudden, you know, he found his timing.

We're doing we're going to try get into some of what's going. Well, we always try to find some ray of sunshine.

Just getting to a conversation with Alex spear again. None of the great audio component that you normally are used to the you know, it sounds like they're right in the studio kind of thing. That's just not a deal in 2020. So apologizing in advance for what is a rocky audio mix here, but we got where got. I think you'll enjoy the when we get to our spring training at recorded interviews with a couple of these prospects that I'm talking about. It'll sound like I'm actually at the Ballpark For The First Time in Forever cuz Again full disclosure that was way back home. And training when you could actually walk up to somebody shake their hand and you know, whatever else you want to talk about. You could could be a lot closer than six feet and if ever been at the the ballpark and seen it on a chat or something like that or just seeing a post game press conference if you're in the clubhouse at Fenway and you're not six inches from people forget about six feet, but this will be kind of a throwback to when way back when we were able to to experience that kind of thing. So stay tuned for a couple of chats back to back with Red Sox prospects the Alex speier coming up right away the interview that is one more thing to tell you about before we roll and I swear it's not bad stats about Devers. It's not about will Bogart's be traded again. We're trying to get you. Oh, shall we say up right now? And it's a hell of Segway because this is the Roman read right now erectile dysfunction is not easy. Normally we brush it off or blame ourselves. We say I lost my mojo or whatever with Roman.

All right, Alex. Standing by God. I'm trying to think of what I can tell you this not like Michael Chavis has struck out a million times. It's actually as I record this only nine times in his last 14 at bad. So I guess that's not everything off you guys are totally up to speed on the fact that if you ride was pitching of Chris Sale was healthy, maybe things will be a little different but there's just no depth as you know, the whole winning attitude has gone and now a lot of birth 10 is about to leave as well with Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree already in Philly. Maybe there's more to come. Let's get to Alex speier on that. I'm rambling at this point and she'll hear when I get going with Alex there is certain age or rambling to come but that's what we do here on Red Sox beat the great Alex speier indeed joins us and if it sounds like there is a bad connection here and has the age of Pac-Man and we never get in front of each other and do a real bike ask anymore. I got to help myself. I'm the one on the terrible line. Alex is on a landline and we kind of have to do that. My wife is driving. I'm sitting in the passenger seat first things first valid. I got to tell you your call was so perfectly timed. I mentioned to Stacey you're going to be calling in and she got this look of horror on her face not because of who you are dead. But because we're listening to SiriusXM and Phil Collins is on and the drum solo was just about to come on, you know, you know what I'm talking about, right? Yeah, so you the phone number? And literally it was like everybody or the car is really happy now. So thank you for your impeccable timing. Number one. That's that's my story. I got a year about why this song play in your calling in to me something about a wedding ring gone missing. What what happens? Yes. Yes the terror I was was seized with Terror as life all of a sudden they noted my my wedding ring was gone. And this was shortly after having having been out swimming today. So I was concerned that it might be at the bottom of at the bottom of a body water somewhere, but I was relieved to find out that it was merely a very twenty-twenty. It was merely a a 2020 paper of sorts where I had recently bought it up at 10 that my kids have been hanging out in our backyard because no one has anywhere to go and in the ring had during had slid off into the tent that wage. And fold it up. And so the the great crisis has been averted and I have learned better than to ever think. I'll leave my house again wedding ring case for twenty twenty years. Well, I'm just so glad you found this thing and I promise we'll get the baseball here in a second. So we right around this time last year. I remember me telling you that they say and I were going to Greece during the All-Star break or actually I guess it's coming out of that trip to London at the Red Sox made and the very first thing I did when we jumped into swimming pool when where we got to the hotel was watching my wedding ring go right to the bottom of a ten-foot pole. So I'm with you I I really am. So hey one more aside because you mentioned that the need to kind of force yourself to travel out of your house. I mean right down to be shuffling off the Buffalo. Literally, I mean.
