He does not believe it because it is not believable. Leave. That's absurd and they think they're doing the right thing, but to me. They're pissing on their own fans. I mean you're talking literally about a thousand people who could hear that if they were chanting it and they're fifty sixty feet away or more from Torii Hunter, it was it'd be loud enough for a thousand fans to hear. Nobody did anything nobody said anything by the way TORII. Hunter didn't tell anyone either. Wow, it's very laughable on its face. I know it's asking a lot from Sam Kennedy. Who is the King of the Panthers? At some point, you have to defend your own fans at some.

We know for a fact that don't mush setback. I believe it's A. Pretty well established the Tom. yawkey protected a pedophile in his clubhouse for years.

"Not streak totally spelled out. So that's the deal Tim, you know, the other thing is, you know, it's a way for us to remember our friend every year, you know, to think about him and, and that's, that's the other part of it. So it's a personal 'cause for me and, you know, I I'm my hope is that, you know, ten years from now, I'm not doing this. But yeah, this is something that's that's been very important to me for a long time since Tim time. Well, you do great work with it. You get a lot of help. I saw on your Twitter page some members the Red Sox. Going to be at the gal. Yeah. So we so the Red Sox every year of have supported and been. I mean givers and it's it's been it's been pretty pretty amazing. What Sam Kennedy of the Red Sox have done in supporting and giving money. We got signed stuff from Mookie Betts, and it's, it's, it's pretty cool. I just I appreciate, you know, the Yankees as well, Brian Cashman, donate his box every year. So you get sick seats in the GM's box, you know, with food and drink, and he comes in hangs out with you. And I mean you know, Bryant as well as anyone he is. That is a really cool auction item because Ryan is as down to earth guy as you'll run into I, I don't know that they're I don't know that if you could hang out in the general manager spot. With five of your friends, and, and another energy sit there and maybe have a beer and and, and a bunch of really good food and watch a baseball game. I don't I don't know that there's guys, you'd wanna hang out with more than cash. Yeah. He does a great job with that stuff every year. All right. We heard from Joel Madden earlier in the podcast with what are you suggesting that the ball is juice? You got the cubs in the Astros tonight doing the play by play on ESPN television. What was your taking what he said? Wasn't the polls. Geez. For. But I'll also tell you this, and this is where this is where the conversation needs to be nuance. And I don't know whether you agree or disagree with this, but the thing that people do in this discussion that I think is wrong, I understand why they do it. But this is what takes place BUSTER, is in a stab wishing that the ball is different. If in fact, it is stabbed. And by the way, they're, they're going to get their hands on. Baseball's and by the second half, they will have enough that and first half baseball's collected. And it'll show that the ball is slightly different in my opinion. Here's the flaw, everybody. Just always assumes intense. They always assume intent me feel that if it's a stab the balls different, they did it on purpose. And I don't know that that's necessarily. So I that's the part that I think is, is, you know, that where people need to be reasonable and that this conversation needs to be nuance even if they establish that the ball is different. It doesn't mean they'll be did it on purpose and I'll add this. I am of the opinion. I'm not a conspiracy guy. In fact, I'm anti conspiracy guy. And I think with every second that were on this earth I'm less of a conspiracy guy. And I'll tell you why people suck it keeping secrets and. Of social media and electron ick transactions, you're too many trails. So that, like if there was some grand conspiracy. Hey, let's make the ball different. I just thought it would leak we would find out it like it. We would find out if there was intention to change the ball. So that's my take on it that and again, that we could end up finding out that there was a tension to change the ball. But I emphasize this idea that if we find out the ball is different people always leap to the idea. Oh, did it on purpose? And no. You can't necessarily go there. That's not it that isn't necessarily. So you understand what I'm saying? I one hundred percent understand what you're saying, because I answer this sort of question all the time when you get the, the tweets that people will say you guys just want the Red Sox the Yankees to win..

"The farm system right now rated as one of the lower farm systems and if you were hoping that two thousand eighteen would be the type of. Year that a farm system like the Red Sox. Could improve well you're a little bit you're you're hoping the two. Thousand eighteen had a reset button because. It's been a terrible year for the farm system you just take a look at all the. Prospects and either injury suspension poor performance it has been a very poor year from the guys. That you were hoping to take big steps forward Michael Chavis the top prospect in the system third baseman first basement type of course he just returned earlier this month from his. PD suspension he did hit home runs. And back to back games couple of days ago but He's hitting about? Two twenty two since he came back, from suspension Brian Madda who. Pitched in the futures game for, the, Red Sox he's a pitcher nineteen year old down in Salem he? Was scratched from start yesterday in high and they said it wasn't injury related they just wanted to give them a little bit more? Time of course some? People thought maybe he was involved in a potential trade then he got Tanner how who's on, that team Tristan CASAs who was the first round pick this year for the Red Sox he ended up hurting his thumb early in his. Career, I think playing with. Lull, and Jay groome of course out of the year he was the guy that most people looked at coming into. The season is okay maybe he's a guy that theoretically could be a factor maybe. Later in the season in Summerell or could be a major piece in a trade so look at the. Farm system it's been a really poor year, as far, as the guys. Down on, the farm so do they have enough to be able. To make a major acquisition and the other factor of course is are they, will To spend. Enough now Dave Dombrowski. And Sam Kennedy have talked over the, course of the week saying that there really are no restrictions I. Think the last number that I saw as far as. Where the Red Sox payroll was was about, two hundred and thirty three million. And the top limit for that luxury tax is two hundred thirty seven million and. If the Red Sox go over it then they have to pay a much harsher penalty they see their draft pick next year their first round. Pick gets bumped back ten spaces, and it really becomes a deterrent and a lot of teams have not been willing. To go over that limit as far as the the luxury tax the? Red Sox I don't think have ever, been over it Of course they came into this season with the highest payroll in the big leagues Yankees I think about one. Hundred sixty seven million they've got loads of space the dodgers read? And down from the two hundred and forty two hundred fifty million number that, they've, been at the last couple of years now the Red Sox say that they have enough space. To be able to make a, move acquire a player and bring in somebody who you know may not be cheap maybe a player that is. Going to push you over that high luxury tax threshold the question is do you believe that to be the case and maybe to the Red Sox convinced themselves that they have enough here that they don't need to. Acquire somebody I mean after all the team, is what now thirty eight games over five hundred. Sixty nine and thirty one after losing. Yesterday so did they need to make a play, to bring somebody in and then. You look at the nitty gritty of the roster and you say okay I. Think they do if they really want, to be that, team to be feared in October the issue Last, couple of years of course the Red Sox had a, good team on paper. But had some small flaws and of course some bad luck you think Eduardo Nunez. The spiritual leader, of last year's team he goes down in the first inning of the first game and that really seemed to take the wind out of the Red Sox?.

"They going to do now so this I farted this story, out at Starbucks, this morning but I mean, it probably wasn't well worded but I mean it which is in by the way Tiger Woods in the lead, at the open right now but. We'll get. To that later So you got to figure out and we know that they were looking at bullpen this is a priority this, is there has been the priority I think it's still yeah but. The whole idea was well we can see what Tyler thornburg as we can see what this. Guy is we can. See what that guy is, you're running out of time and you still sitting here with the only certainty leading into Craig? Kimbrel is Matt Barnes and Barnes? Has been really really good lately, on. The way Sam Kennedy put it to me not to you is why why are. You on the station. We had the story I go okay They want they want to see how Stephen Wright looks how drew Pomeranz? Looks starting pitching market yes for that subset and and you know some. Guys might move after. August first so so you're not screwed it's not a final product. If you don't make a trade or or, the final trade before, July thirty first but now, the question is with Iran out do the Red Sox. Need to go out and get a starting pitcher in addition to a reliever or do you simply. Add a starting. Pitcher and then, hope that one. Of Pomeranz Iraq or right can effectively move into the bullpen and give you the boost you need I like. The idea this is, my, crystal ball of what I would, trade for both but if if you had to choose one go for the. Starter then when Iran gets back put. Them in the pen because he has strikeout stuff we've seen him come back from the knee. Injury before and you. Didn't have confidence in the, leg it's the same like you said the knee injury we don't know how will be what? Will look like when he is? Ready to return use them three. Innings Winnings relief that you're David price type a, guy at a starting Okay which star, are you, going to get. Because if you can talk about reliever I say go get Zach Britton price is. Probably going. To. Be the probably gonna? Lose out on the. JP, Jake Peavy okay. Which started you on I throw Matt Harvey yeah I like her I name I've. Been, thrown out too because it's kind of a mid range name now? Do you want you one. Second when when you throw them out Harvey's name the bizarre thing if you get, a lot of reaction on Twitter and a. Lot of it is. Is he would he couldn't function in Boston you couldn't watch your are you Are you kidding me for two months going into a free agent year he, isn't going to be on his best behavior. On a winning team. Come on Dumb I mean rob it's not like he, took great, care from self coming out of. The fifteen World Series I mean he wasn't he, wasn't in a free agent year.

"Rapper along, Devon drelic you all the way up into the Red Sox pre-game media stars about twenty minutes in talking all. Baseball all, baseball civil war in blood. Distribution Why can't I mean that song I don't know what? Does. That low by cracker low okay What's the where's the poll at by the way hold. On On We put up, Evan put up a poll Twitter. Account it looks like it's seventy. Thirty the poll is whose absence from the Red Sox would be more. Impactful Mookie, Betts JD Martinez Mookie wins seventy. Thirty I said JD Martinez Avin clearly is a smarter human being that I am new that, yes there you go trade. Deadline we haven't got to this at. All you had a story from Sam Kennedy talking about. That they would be willing to go over the luxury tax which reminded me of some sound that we had from our own radio station from June twenty. Eighth do we have that you have the financial flexibility as, well because I know you're well aware of what your payroll is next. Threshold is that something that you're willing to go over or is that something you gotta make sure that guy's definitely the difference if we do or you just don't want to go over? Period, no I don't think it's that we definitely don't want to go over. It I don't think that that's the. Case I think we're in a situation where you analyze everything that takes place are ownerships been fantastic with giving us the payroll we have, now and there's no question that we do Do whatever we can to try. To win you can see some. Of the most we've made so it's not that we don't want to. Go over, I prefer not to because there. Are penalties attached it's not the the worst in our situation in the sense that the penalty, for going over that threshold. Is a drop in ten draft choices. For the next year you prefer not to do that. And of course you prefer not to pay tax but we're also in a position we're going to be drafted near the end of the first round and. Sometimes you can take the same player draft and where we'd, be drafting ten picks later that you would get it twenty eight twenty. Nine or thirty so map reparable you never like to pay penalties but it's also one that would not hold us up from doing thanks rob subtly trying all right so this this is? Talk, as I as I mentioned by Dave Dombrowski and then reiterated by Sam. Kennedy Evan drellich they're not afraid of. Going over the luxury tax so that leads you to what are they going to do what the trade deadline now avenue would agree with, me so petty all I've also so Kyle? Was petty what's going on what's you cranky that story. Got a little play you're your Why are you getting defensive. I just all I did, was placed on our own. Station which is what we should do if. We have the. Side we should? Play rob? Rob, he just wants to pop up. Our brand Right exactly what a good site editor if that was a news. Is rob seems to be say it's not new that's exactly what we. Did we put. It up on our side I can pull it up Dave Dombrowski said. That they were. Not reluctant to go. Over the luxury tax. We put it up on? The excellent excellent website w. e. dot com nothing gets robbed, going more than like behind the. Scenes talks about headlines and, all right here we go. I love it back Hadrian us get back So there's been now we're getting starting to. Get a trickle of of rumors and and we've had a couple of deals. Made Calvin Harare the first he'll. Made the c Pierce deal good deal for the Red Sox, who along the. Indus along the lines of. It why don't unions last year right. You give them credit for. These deals until whoever the guy they traded for him does something then we. Say it was a good deal you would agree that they needed this. And they got it and it's a good deal for what this team needs I'm still. Bitter about the. Way the water Nunez. Trade made me look That's okay that's all right You're you're entitled to, be better when you're, on but so what so what are?.

"And those are the guys that can get you stuff they gave. Him up in Pomeranz is deal they gave up the best prospect in. Baseball to. Get Chris sale. They, needed to have top prospects in order to get all those guys I'm not I, don't know I don't think that the Red. Sox right. Now need a Up. Top level player I think they need some, you know appropriate maybe a right handed starter in. Second baseman but I don't don't get me wrong on that, I think if they just want. To get a bullpen arm they could probably, still do it it might not be the top bullpen are. But they could get somebody back there with what they have I just thought, to, the comments we were reading from Sam Kennedy it saying hey we're not. Afraid to bring in a guy who has a big contract and my whole point. Is how many big contracts are, going to be dealt for nothing like for what they have you're probably not. Going to get a guy who's making fifteen twenty million bucks I'm looking at SPF nation does a a ranking under minor league. Ball, dot com of the current of the minor. League, systems yeah they've got the Red Sox. Ranked at twenty fifth just below the cups seems. A little they've got the. Twenty-fifth now in two thousand, seventeen they had them twenty four, so? They're down a notch two thousand sixteen they were sixth right Two thousand fifteen they. Were second yawn Mocatta and Andrew, Benintendi and some of these other guys that. Are that are still Denver's, go on, down. The line is still at Anderson Espinosa and, I know he's been a bus and he got. Hurt but the point is viewed very highly when he was, traded away for drew Pomeranz so. When when Dombrowski God near the farm system, was absolutely stacked and I don't think you can freak out. That he traded all these guys away considering it's the starting pitcher in the, all-star, game for the last two years you got from a bunch of prospects. The closer who's also in the all star game again for these guys maybe you. Thought they could have gotten more, for who they gave up for Pomeranz but even he was pretty good last. Year so Bleacher report their rankings at the beginning of the season the Red Sox twenty-second yeah I mean there's thirty teams in. Baseball, so that's one of the worst farm systems. I, don't think that's the end of the. World some people look at that and they freak. Out they all look what. He's done this is what, he does everywhere. But look how ya Some of. The, starters are between, Denver's Benintendi even Betts Bogaerts it's not like you're looking at a really old team, combined with a bad minor league system I'm.
