Five win in this year's al cs and whistling is a big part of it. A couple of years ago the yankees accuse the astros of cheating by relaying science two batters using a whistling sound major league. Baseball did a whole big investigation. And they heard whistling like any other ballgame but was no proof though the astros were guilty of using whistling sounds to alert their hitters to what was coming but it comes up again as houston pounded.

I don't know it's like a guy and taking a penalty shot. Steve and the you know the the bench whistling at the guy knowing knowing your go. Hi trapper on the goalie. Okay you go. Hi trapper now. That would be the ideal. We got our analytics. We got our analytics and so it's like statistic that means go. Hi trapper. you know that cheating. Is that cheating. You know if he had to announce that the referee what kind of a shot he was about to make and then somehow that's related a goaltender. He'd stop at nine times out of ten. I've like i get it steve. If these guys you know if houston comes up to bat steve and the barrel of the bat is six times bigger than than than another barrel you know that that the thing expands when the ball hits it so you can never never i some goofy like that. Something goofy steroids steve. You guys rounded hitting dinger's left and right. Okay i get it but easy on the stealing signs here you know has had so they watch their way into the world series and whistling. Now okay knock it off with houston cheating.

Fresh update on "red sox" discussed on Boston Sports Beat
"I think a lot of what happened in game 5 was all about framber Valdez and the job he did with his sinker, making virtually no mistakes for the entire game, keeping the ball out of the plate, throwing with terrific command, getting a lot of ground ball outs, it's not as if any of the other Houston starters looks capable of turning in that kind of performance, whether it's a key or Garcia or odor easy over these next two nights next two games if indeed there are two games. You have to feel a little bit better about the Red Sox offense bouncing back. They hit in Houston for game two. They certainly had in Fenway for game three. We've seen them be capable of bust out games. We've also frankly seen them be very frustrating in terms of their offensive production. It would sort of come and go over the course of the season, but ultimately over the duration of the year, this was one of the three or four best offensive teams in baseball and you have to figure after a couple of subpar games that some of that comes back for game 6. Switching gears, we're going to talk some football with Greg bedard, but first off, we.

Of course, the Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 62 in the wild card game on Tuesday night before a raucous crowd of 38,000 at Fenway Park to discuss it all. And yes, look ahead to the American League divisional series with the Tampa Bay Rays. I welcome back old friend Alex birth of 98 5, the sports hub, follow him on Twitter at real Alex barth all one word. Pretty entertaining game I'd say for Red Sox fans on Tuesday night beginning in the first inning with the two run Homer by Xander bogarts. Wouldn't you say Alex? Yeah, I enjoyed it. I think, you know, from a fan point of view, it was what you look for where there was just enough drama and nervousness to make you feel alive, but not quite enough to never became too scared to handle. And I mean, we'll get into it. You know, when he took of all the out there when core took of all the out there and I know he'd given up a couple of hits, but he's pitching well and you think, uh oh, this we've seen this before. This decision has come back to haunt managers and, you know, kind of scooted to the end of your seat a little bit, but besides that, I don't know that there was ever too much doubt on the Red Sox fans part. I think that Matt Vasquez and what's his name down there in New York, they had their moments of especially there in the first and not a rod, no. Their Yankees radio announcer. Oh, God. John Sterling. I don't know if you saw the clip. I didn't know the first inning. Oh, you haven't seen that? I need to go back and watch it. Do you want to start right here? I mean, I'll tell you.

"I really do, and I would give him a good shot against either Houston or Chicago too. So setting up the postseason picture for make sure league baseball the Red Sox and the Yankees kick it all off on Tuesday night in the American League, wild card game at Fenway Park, 8 o'clock, Wednesday night, 8 o'clock on TNT. It is the LA Dodgers and Saint Louis Cardinals in the wildcard playoff. And the winner of that series will face the San Francisco Giants. If it's the Dodgers and giants for best of 5 series baseball, is living a chart. Braves and the brewers braves the three seat against the brewers number two seed. I like the brewers to get to the World Series actually. And then those two teams, those two brackets would meet off in the national league championship series. The series I think is going to get overlooked as the one you just alluded to. The White Sox and the Astros, Astros finishing as the two seed in the American League, the White Sox, the three seed, and so it'll be interesting to see who advances from that goes to the American League championship series. But all eyes will be on Fenway Park on Tuesday night. Plans the Red Sox and Yankees square off the game is on ESPN nationally. And it's pretty much a made for ESPN game, don't you think? Yeah, so wait, before we wrap this up, can I ask you a question? Yeah. So I have this argument every year with my friends. Sure. Did the Red Sox, if the Red Sox lose? Did they make the playoffs? Does making the wild card game count as making the playoffs? Okay, technically, yes, in my mind, no. Thank you. Yes. There you go. If the Mariners had made it and lost, that playoff drought continues. Like this is it's like the no, it doesn't. And because I had this debate with fans of the reds about 3013 when they got just boat raced by the pirates in that one game playoff, Johnny cueto fell off the mount all of that garbage. That was a great game. But, you know, that is included as part of Cincinnati's postseason record. And I just think it's silly that a one game playoff like that. I think it's a one game playoff is what it is. Exactly. It's not, not the most postseason series. But I would agree. I think you're spot on. Yeah, well, I try to be Alex. Hey, I just want to confirm here that because I don't want to give people the wrong information.

"Here are the numbers on Gerrit Cole at Fenway Park this year. One and two, 6, 19 ERA. He has allowed 5 home runs at Fenway this year, and he has a 1.63 whip. Those are not good. No, and I think that's got to be really encouraging. That's got to be really encouraging if you're the Red Sox. And if you go back, he made one start in each year 1718 and 19 that first start, he allowed 5 runs in 5 innings. That next start two and 6, the 2019 start he was actually good. He allowed no runs through 5 innings but he did allow 6 hits. So not his favorite ballpark to pitch in. No. And in pitching so mental, right? And I think when you know you have no margin for error like this in this one game playoff, that's the kind of thing that can sneak into somebody's head. And I don't, look, I haven't watched every start Garret Cole has ever made. But I've watched him in some big games when I watch him. He's a very good pitcher. He does one of the best. He does seem like a guy that if things start going wrong, it can snowball for mentally. He doesn't seem like the most mentally tough. You know, he doesn't have that killer instinct that you sometimes see for maces. So if that, if Ben was in his head and the Red Sox get to him early, they could potentially make it a long day for him. Or short day, depending on how you look at it. Yeah, I mean, I just think it's pretty fascinating that Aaron Boone decided to go with Garrett Cole, but I mean, again, in all fairness to these managers, they had to make some decision based on the next couple of days. Without knowing how Sunday was going to unfold, right? I mean, they had to have their best picture ready in a one game playoff. And whether or not he's done well at Fenway Park, you ask Aaron Boone, that probably immaterial at this point. We just expect our best players to rise to the top and that's what they're going to expect out of Garrett Cole. And I think when you look at the Yankees pitching staff too, I mean, yeah, he hasn't been great at Fenway Park, but who else are you going to trust? Most of the guys have an ERA around four, four and a half. Who are you going to go to in that game, even with the splits at Fenway Park, do you feel better about? I still think he's their best option. All things considered. I don't need to come out and say, oh, they're idiots for pitching them, but it is something you have to consider. If you're the Yankees, and you're up by one run, you're going to tell me you're going to trust a rolled as Chapman, right?.

"You have to pass certain milestones before you are permitted back on the roster. Correct? Yeah, and it's different for vaccinated and unvaccinated players. So Nick pavetta came back for Sunday start, and he hadn't been out for the full ten days, but he had been vaccinated. So if you're unvaccinated, if you are vaccinated, you are a non symptomatic, you can come back earlier. Chris sale, they haven't said anything, but typically when they don't say anything that means they're unvaccinated. So he will have to wait at least the full ten days and then he'll still have to go through testing and symptom testing and all that. So I can't really speak too much to the concussion protocols to be honest. But it is sort of a convoluted situation. Well, I mean, I guess the reason I bring that up is, you know, when you're dealing with an actual old fashioned injury, there are things you can do to maybe get yourself through that injury, maybe shorten the amount of time that you are in rehab and get back sooner, right? I mean, a lot of players have done that in the past. And that's no shock. But with this, there are certainly there's the seriousness of the virus itself. There's the pandemic. And there's really the concern, I think, in a city like Boston and in an organization like the Red Sox that has hit been hit particularly hard by COVID-19. They don't want to mess around and they don't want to take any shortcuts. That's I guess the point I was making. No, yeah. I mean, it makes sense. And it's not, I mean, a normal injury, it's really between the training staff, the player and the team on when they're coming back and when you have something like COVID-19 there are federal regulations there, obviously rules that you have to pass. So yeah, I mean, that's definitely a different situation. Speaking with Matt Collins, the editor of over the monster dot com, brought to you by SB nation.

But he can throw a smooth, one O one, a very smooth one O one. He is a tremendous picture. Yeah. You like that Florida state Notre-Dame game. I thought of you, Alex. I don't know why I did. I didn't like it because, well, first of all, who likes Notre-Dame? And second of all, I was so excited for McKenzie Milton to make his comeback. Great story, right? I think great quarterback. I think a guy who if he doesn't suffer that injury is probably in the league right now. But he doesn't get the start. They put him in late in the game and then they blow it for him. It just didn't sit right with me. I wanted them to win that game for him so bad. Hopefully he becomes the startup. Look, at the other kid, Jordan something, I forget his last name. He wasn't awful. He threw a couple of picks, but some of them I think two of those were on the receiver more nim. He made some nifty plays, but I just, I want to watch McKenzie milling again, man. He was so good and it's just so unfortunate what happened to him. I think the doctor, they showed a quote from the doctor last night about his surgery like nothing like that had ever been done before. They weren't sure they were going to save his leg.

"Promo code NFL 100 back with Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub, Alex, let's move on to the offense. I think Kyle schwarber is starting to warm up, huh? Yeah, no, he can hit. He can hit. You know, I know I was on here the other week and I was kind of critical of that trade. It was nothing against college work. He's a good player. I think that was just you don't like college forever. No, I'm joking. Well, I like my team having an actual first basement, but no, he's not going to crap out of the ball right now and they need it because JD Martinez is kind of gone cold and then obviously not having beaux arts in the lineup there go two of your three biggest bats and Rafi's still hitting which is great, but you need a little more than that. So he's been a big part, I think, of why they've been able to go on this little run here has been his spark. Well, and as a leadoff batter, he is giving something a little bit different to the different look anyway to the top of the order. He has reached base safely in 19 of his 20 games with the Red Sox and he slashing three 19 four 49 and 5 69 as OPS is over a thousand and a 1019. He's 23 of 72 with four bombs, 8 RBIs. And most significantly, the reason he's at the top of the order, 17 walks. Yeah. Yeah, 17 walks in 20 games. I heard somebody say the other day, it's eucharis esque. It is. You know, normally those power guys don't do that because you're sort of have to take chances and rip it the ball if you're trying to hit home runs like that. That's what we've been told. He seems to just have this uncanny balance for it. And it's really cool to see. I don't know how he does. I'd love to ask him. I don't know how he does it. I don't know what his trick is. He may not want to leak that secret out. He because it's clearly an advantage, but he's like.

"Hey everybody, it's drags and this week on Red Sox beat. I welcome back good friend and old colleague, Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub, you can of course follow him on Twitter at real Alex barth today. We are going to be talking about the resilient Red Sox. They have overcome quite a lot in the past 7 days since we last spoke Alex the COVID pandemic that is really hit them hard. The injured list, they've had no fewer than 11 players in the last ten days placed on COVID. IL. And what's to me, most significant about that, of those players, 5 have been pictures, still, they managed to go on a four game winning streak. The day after Xander Bogart's their best player arguably was pulled off the field in the second inning by Alex Quora. Look, say what you will about the Red Sox slumping after the all star break and for a good portion of August. But this team and the last week has shown me something. Yeah, they have. And when I was on with you, whatever was last week, right? We were talking about what do they need to do to win the division? I said, just they got to at least split with Tampa and then they got to win every series from there on out. They split with Tampa. They won their first series. So they're doing what they need to do right now and all things considered everything they're going through. It's pretty darn impressive. They had something called a cut or Crawford on the mound. Yes, they did win the game, but you know he gave enough innings where they didn't have to drain the bullpen. They still won the series that in itself felt like sort of a win for them. Just given the situation they're in right now. So it does feel like they're turning the corner. Whatever August was it was. That was a mess. The Red Sox, I actually looked this up. I kind of stumbled on this by accident. The Red Sox in years two zero X one. So 20 blank one. Always collapsed late in season. 2001, they were like, 20% was right around 60% through July, August and September. It was barely found is when I will remind you, that's when Joe Kerrigan took over and was giving hitting advice to people like Troy O'Leary..

"Back with Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub, Alex, let's talk about the top two pictures in the Red Sox rotation. They really do have a one two punch now with the return of Chris sale and Nathan of Aldi. He is, you know, of all the obviously has been the ace before sale returned. All season long. And you can even say with Tanner house pitching the way he did on Sunday, you got a good one, two, three. Yeah. Yeah, I'd agree with that. And I think I'm still holding out hope for water Rodriguez too. I'm really a big fan of his, and I think he can turn around a little bit. But yeah, the starting rotation is starting to stabilize and that that's going to go a long way, but the question now, they're pitching better, but how deep can they get into games? Because we're seeing like you look at yesterday, right? I think he threw after a point. 5 and a 30, 5 and a third. So just the way this bullpen is performing right now, and Chris sales and exception to this because you got to make sure he stays healthy and if he can only throw 5 innings, you can only throw 5 minutes. That's just a reality of it. But yeah, you kind of look now all right. Things are getting better in the short term, but you need to start getting 6, 7 innings out of some of these guys. I know it's late in the season. I know nobody threw a ton last year because of the shortened season. But even just for the next week or two, and there's some really big games coming up, which I'm sure we'll get into. Yes. You need to try to shield that bullpen a little bit. You need to try to bury that bull pen a little bit. You need these guys going into the 7th inning to just kind of limit the damage that bull pen can do. But yeah, no, they're pitching better, and that's certainly encouraging, but now I'm looking at and sometimes it's the way you do it. Sometimes when a guy's slumping, you pull them out before you probably realistically should 'cause it's hey, you had 5 good innings. We're gonna give you those 5 good innings we're gonna let you sit on that. Think about that for the next 5 days. And you don't leave them in there long enough to blow up. I actually think that's a good approach to pictures who are struggling. And it seems like that's what the Red Sox did right now, but now it's time to take those rains off. Now it's time to let these guys get deeper into games because the bullpen just doesn't have it. Beginning August 7th, Nathan of valdi, that would be four starts and Chris sales three starts..

"The most doesn't have enough that and right, I don't I don't know that there's enough that he can do but, you know, You mentioned this was going to be a defining stretch. It was almost exciting because it felt like the way Cora had the team going in it. Not just the way that he was playing. It was a specific feeling of the way. Alex Cora had them going that this was the kind of stretch that they were going to grab the opportunity and put this thing away. Right. You know right back to that Series against the Yankees out of the All-Star break data chance to bury the Yankees that weekend off, he's probably don't get Rizzo, they probably don't get Gallo. If they get swept that weekend, instead they opened the door part of me in a bizarre type of fashion wonders if home bloomed thinks that their hot start for the season did them a disservice because he had a charge from Red Sox ownership from Sam Kennedy from everybody at the top of the organization don't blow up what you what you are building in the farm system. We have too many prospects that we believe are going to be legit and we don't want you trading those chips away like David Dombrowski would just to make money. One more run at a World Series. We want to have something sustainable over the course of many, many years. And, you know, that is the model that they chose to build with Hime Bloom. That's odd. That was his charge when he was hired a couple of years ago and I don't think that's going to change. And that's why you didn't see him go out and make a big push at the MLB deadline. But isn't there a happy medium isn't there somewhere between David? And Brian said, he would tell you they did tax. They would, they would tell you that they tried to do that. You know, going out and getting getting Kyle, schwarber's. The problem with Kyle schwarber, we should address this right now before we get too far along Jen. McCaffrey reported it in the athletic on Monday. Some of the other people have it out there as well. Kyle schwarber had a setback on Sunday. He came up with a sore left groin, to go along with his tight, right hamstring. So that's kind of a double whammy wage. Considered quote unquote. A minor setback. We'll see. Just how minor it is. And when we could expect to see Kyle schwarber who hasn't played since July 2nd, when can we expect him to return? You know that tempered a little bit, the news, the good news of crisil who was expected to make the start this Saturday at Fenway against Baltimore. So here's my thing with shorter and the deadline, right? I think even if you want to kind of hold together and you think you have something built, you don't know. You just don't know. Xander, Bogaerts has an opt-out in his contract. Coming up, JD Martinez is on the wrong side of 30000, you're going to have to pay Rafael Devers soon. You don't know, I mean, Chris Sale. This could be it. He may have one year left in his arms 32, Alex, I mean, and he's throwing and by all indications, he's throwing his dog L, as he ever has physically, we'll see how that translates into games but I would expect him to come back. Pretty doggone strong from this. I Tommy, right? It's more, I think he'll come back, strong initial. More of a durability thing. You know, my.

"Birth. Together as they go pro, does Kyle schwarber. Make the play Bobby dalbec made in the eighth inning, Sunday night at Tampa Bay? I do not think he does. I mean, Beck, is that a struggle at the plate? That is well documented and we know all know that he is pretty much hit or miss all or nothing at the plate. If you're talking Bobby dalbec but the play made it first base package on the chopper, the spinning cue ball, shot down to Rafi, Devers at third base and scooped that out of the dirt was very special playoff thought under pressure. Yeah. I mean, we don't know how long to get from for defensively. You know, he's a guy that came up as a catcher. Obviously, was there a little bit as a rookie it with the Cubs and since then, it's like ninety 9.5% of the time he's played left field so from you know, it's going to be maybe at times an adventure, but the point is to get his back in the lineup, we've seen with the Red Sox, first baseman have done all kinds of leave the season. Like you said, dalbec has been, you know, authors, And a couple hot weeks here, and they're pretty much in the slump All Year, Danny Santana and marwin Gonzalez. The guys, they try it out there have been uh, you know, abysmal as well. We've seen Frankie Cordero, come up and have a little success here and there and the last couple of weeks, but the Red Sox needed to fill, you know, they can't have a dead spot in their line-up every night. And so they they definitely feel that they come August 15th or wage war was back. I will no longer be an issue. Yeah, I'm just curious to see how Alex Cora who I think has always been very underrated for the way he manipulates his line up and and Thursday. It's the puzzle pieces in to make it a productive off, certainly a productive offense of line up and suddenly he I don't think he gets enough credit for his knowledge of the game and where to position people and put guys, in position on the field to do the best job, they can defensively and that and that really helps their pictures down. Yeah, we saw that in 2018, you know, when they were at their best, you know, on a daily basis it was you know, either holster Nunez a second either Pearson Moreland at first, you know, a lot of them are very solid defensively. You know, you look at a guy like Mitch Moreland, who is a gold glove candidate all the time. Steve Pearce was solid over there. He mix and match. And and you know the laundry for the Red Sox gave TJ Hernandez. So they could put in a defensive spot for me is going to be one of the best defenders on the field. So I think they're happy with that at times. Like I said, we don't know what's going to happen at first base before, but it's it's a risk. They're willing to take off the robe was roblez made his debut Sunday night at Tampa Bay. He's the right-hander they got at the deadline from twins for right-hander, Alex, sure. Who went to MIT backed off soda, minor-league picture, and then they also got left, handed picture, Austin, Davis from the Pirates. What do you think those two guys can contribute? I think, you know, if you're looking at from a Red Sox perspective, they're looking for interesting arms that weren't going to cost you much. I'm sure they had talks with the Cubs about Craig, Kimbrel. But you saw, what they had to give up Nick Madrigal, who was just on a second, baseman already was sitting like 3:20 and, you know, eighty five major league games and he's out for the rest of this year. But there's a guy who's under control forever as track record in Major League success. I mean, trying to think the Red Sox would have to give up, you know, for a guy like camera, it's a price. They weren't willing to pay so and Alex sheriff is a guy who's had success this year with a kind of a fringe Prospect and then Michael Chavis who obviously was just a change of scenery candidate. At this point of the struggles in the last two years, the Red Sox didn't give up anything that they thought would meaningfully fit into their plans for the next few years. And and exchange got, you know, two arms that are not the same thing, flashes arms out in the trade market. The two guys that they think. Okay, we can do something with the stuff or we can put them in position to succeed. You know. Robles has been around for a while. I think he has like six or seven Big League Seasons with a few different teams birth. Some success in Anaheim and is on, you know, is a rental guy in Davis, who is controlled for a few more years. They needed a lefty because, you know, they felt like with Josh Taylor and dogs and they didn't have enough left-handed depth, not the flashiest moves, obviously schwarber was the big move, but those are the types of guys that their rentals, they don't cost you much, you bring them into the bullpen see what they could do. It's just another of, you know the the the real cost is they lost Brandon Workman, who was pitching morals. So you know it's not it's not a big risk but there's potential payoffs went, you know, you get the red socks off other team like getting these guys in their Labs. Say okay, we have the video on this guy, we think that if we, you know, increase his change after usage, drop his arm and a little bit, then he'll become a stud for us in the bullpen, every team that smarter than the rest in that regard. And so, you know, we'll see if the Red Sox could do with these two, what's really important for us? I think too high and Bloom and Red Sox ownership, Sam Kennedy, and John Henry at all. That they didn't have to disrupt what they were trying to do with the farm system. That is rebuild it, right? I mean, build up the stock, don't dip into it just to make some rental moves here at the trade deadline in 2021 and make sure everything the key pieces are in place right to move forward and they accomplish that and they're still in great position to make some type of run off last two months, and then, you know, let the cards fall where they may and October. But but the important part of this is that they didn't disrupt the true. You know, Blue Chip prospects in their system that they're building a right? And although Ramirez who was the twenty year old picture that they gave up for schwarberg? He's a guy that had kind of risen up Prospect rankings this year but he if you look at it was not one of the top five or six pitching prospects in the system and that that's important, you know? And so I think, you know, you can give up a twenty-year-old that low, a was three or four steps before coming in the majors feel dead, A better about that than, you know, giving up a tent or house. Obviously, you're giving up a, you know, even a Brian model who's injured, either one of those moves. I think we both know.

"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..

According is the number two thing that everybody's talking about. Twenty Twenty Sucks Just to biblical proportions. I'M NOT GONNA. Wear you out with that. You're here to get away from it and I'm here to provide so. We're GONNA. Try to get to in this episode. A little bit of prediction in terms of when we might see some baseball when we might see the red sox out there at fenway wasn't a great week or weekend for the socks either. We're GONNA talk to Chris Smith momentarily from mass live. He's going to break down the red sox kind of caving towards what a lot of teams are doing right now. Which is saying look? We're you know we're losing money, so you're gonNA, lose money. We're going to start having some salaries here releasing minor leaguers and As always I hope he has. Total red. SOX Honk I give the red sox of the doubt all the time, because I think that that they the giants the phillies. Maybe there's very few teams. It seemed to do almost everything right. All the time and the Red Sox are usually right at the head of that list. I just don't think they. They had a very good Friday. With News Dump that showed that they're gonNA start cutting salaries and. The structure of how they did it. We'll get into that with Chris and a little bit, but I want to try to keep it somewhat. I don't WanNa say positive because again. Nothing super positive right now, but just. As of June first the latest that you need to know the players proposal finally came back. They want one hundred fourteen game season would start at the end of June would go to the end of October. That's probably not going to happen for a variety of reasons, but at least it seems like there's some some talk now some back and forth and. Expanded Playoffs for a couple years I dig that that's fine. They're talking about a salary advance of one hundred million split among the players during Spring Training two point Oh. Still talking about enhancing the season with microphones on the players and other broadcast enhancements. All of that would be fantastic and. Holding some other events like off season all, Star Games. Plural home run derbies. I mean there's so many cool ways you can be generating goodwill and additional money, so they need to find a way right I mean. The nuclear option is not an option that they gotta understand. How if you don't play, it might take years if not decades for some fans to forget all of this squabbling, the millionaires versus billionaires. And other sports are starting to come back or at least show that they know what they're doing in terms of coming back, so it's time to..
"red sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"So, if you're a subscriber to the athletic. and. We had Steve Buckley on from the athletic last week. you'll know this is just really fun. Content top to bottom, and there was a two part survey that our friend Chad Jennings did and we won't have time to walk all the way through it. In fact, it's going to be just a tiny little sliver of what he was able to do, but he threw out things to red sox fans that I think are good talking points, even if there wasn't a pandemic right now, things like what is the next number? Red Sox should retire. Even if Dwight Evans had been elected to the hall of fame this winter and he's only four votes away on the modern era ballot. This question would have probably answered itself and Dwight. Evans would have his number twenty four up there, but he threw it out. Which one you want to see, you WANNA see twenty-one for Roger Clemens WanNa. See Twenty three. Twenty four is an Evans Ramirez Combo twenty-five for. Aero. These are great questions, and there are no wrong answers obviously but. He, he really doesn't is job here. kind of taking you through it even to the point of your favorite red sox uniform, and he also wrote a thing recently about possible tweaks to the red sox uniform, which we'll get into in just a moment, but just to take you through that one for example seventy five percent of you guys. said. You liked the home whites, the best about fifteen percent of you said you liked the home reds. The road grays which I think are just gorgeous got less than ten percent of the vote. In fact, the Road Blues got more votes than the Road Grace I. I mean I. Guess That's what makes America great is. We can agree to disagree on stuff, but. The the road grays are so great to me the the experience of getting a fenway on a game day. He asked about that. You know whether it's too much traffic and people on the trains, and and obviously in this day and age at now becomes an even bigger deal. You're just really asking.

For the red SOx changed in the last fifteen years or so, and you go back to two thousand and four, obviously when I, it spiked for very good reasons and talking about what you expect in the future. Who are going to be the guys who are the guys at the? Red Sox should really look at is free agents in the upcoming season Mookie Betts I would think the obvious choice. Right and I think better than sixty percent of people said Yeah Gimme. Mookie but there were I. Think about one out of eight one out of nine that said go give me a catcher jt real mutual DJ..
