On you win each. These Fort Wayne Loney and 480. This guy here's to you you've heard this guy Caron Butler. A call and heard or our ability. Sebastien mentality and I memorabilia member ability to force of nature in the film prior to Friday Night Lights put you miles. The acting like bogeys with Glenn flew in Christian once again you said that I did not give my opinion I get my normal market partly it was magical how you walked out as well on the radio misrepresented and it took off route a route that was I've actually united out I think about that was good thought they normally are right back out on Sports Radio WEEI. When you sit down to romp through the next podcast from second and it. These countries now listen that it would have let him know we do have something that presumptive. That was an amazing disarm and they get oh yeah yeah sometimes north prepping or even families do plan is that it via matchup for today's game. Okay he's doing he's doing tomorrow's game you know should baseball game tomorrow so he's working on them on that degree or pirates armed. They've got away what you what did you think of the game last night so you get to Joseph plumber answers coming off of trees. Often an injury yup and he gives us six solid innings is sitting on my aunt plus yeah this is good. What what did you think when they brought in amount and to start the so. You know I idea patient at some dip in the sixth and knows he wanted them to go at 95 to a hundred quote given the spring he had ought to be careful in the sixth. You know when I'm reading get up until later but he got to the sixth inning at a thought that should have been enough. I wasn't scream it from the rooftops white to bring this guy exit at their big hitter to hitter we had a look at them in churches are yeah beat it better Venator hitter and it was out. Everybody's just I just. He lost in the sixth in my mind that he was pitching comfortably 93 miles an hour recent 95 in the sixth inning. He got away. You know after the double that he gave he got away with. Two balls to match out of that should have been hit on the hike. I'm a mile an hour fastballs. Inner half. You know and up elevate a little bit belt high. Evita she got away with stuff Schwarzenegger sits there I mean even brought this up last. Well there's the answer the question is bomber it's coming back and he is decide the seventh. I was surprising. Yeah right I am and John Farrell in London at least based Davis here. Anybody out there. Little player here game. That's gonna drop down for a base hit. Faster that's what I earthquake that's an authentic says O'Brien wasn't as scared to say and question the manager. And act you know pounding all over it and it it started the inning before where he didn't shake hands as he was coming out so you've got to lefty opening up the seventh inning. You've got to lefty specialist now that only comes out to pitch against those lefties. Why was he was he playing with fate here. I know you never like to criticize John Farrell I know all put you went in really uncomfortable at. Are you and I wasn't crazy about and nobody said it was screened. Catered hitter at that point he's looking to get to the sixth given that did the spring that he had your good there. And I think it's weeded out in Olympic yeah forget who was Ian Browne personally Cuba consider before the game Johnson won 95200 or whatever wasn't like eleventh plans change. That's a good game and I thought I just felt like he struggled and it even in the sixth he was throwing ninety. He went from consistent be in 1993 and ninety and a lot of that's due to short spring that he had to get tired. Why would you management and wants it to nothing game that was students again that the I'll give you another one I not to get going here look. I'll give you know he's got Kimbrel warming up it is no longer a save situation it is a four off a four run game it's five to one. He's got about warming up and I can't even though crystal was questioning him it shortly became an 81 game and there was no reason to put him out there. But why would you have a warming up. And think about bringing a mop and a four inning game knowing that's not where he performs at his best when the other night. You shied away from bringing him and in the eighth inning when he could've been a factor in that game. This is what John does. With kimbo. He's and in this is I don't like it because I guarantee if they were asking is on today right. There are estimates of five to one it's a full run game the minute somebody gets on base ability Campbell up anyway. Sold. I'm gonna start a minute for a game. And it's like oh okay. All. And he afford one I want even you know. I wouldn't give up to two guys get on right or you know our baby after one guided you get a mop but still. Getting a mop and having him just toss it lightly is different and get them hot the come into a game ordered just given me an inning. Right he's given inning a five to one he has been successful nuns see situations but only up 521. That's his theory that if somebody gets on and get them up anyways so maazel pitcher. And I just swallow and yet they tell us that you go to a five to want to. Amid an in this lineup isn't a good one Fort Campbell what is Fernando bad pitch. He sees he doesn't think. He doesn't it keeps away from. Now worth less time zone today he's on those spring training usually when I did but I also saw a lot of these guys last year and they're all important roles I just don't understand the whole thing winds will exit ephemeral thing but I think now have a problem with the Kimbrel thing the other day it's too early in the season and I guess. You know all ended I know everybody's gonna say one awaited April is just as big as the win September. But there is a difference you don't wanna burn him out that early I'd get that I understand it you don't bring him in for a batter in the eighth inning. But then. Just a few days later we better start doing that at some point most of what you gonna have to do you get a certainly days in Iraq but but it makes no sense is no reason not to be able to put an additional April when you open is in flux but it makes no sense that you were thinking about bringing an end. In any form run game in which doesn't perform well in those situations right. Guarantee I think I can get the three runs spread out to get the triple right after that read you get three runs scored if someone gets on right I'm gonna get a look anyways yeah. A muzzle brake and it was a big difference you bring on a solid drive helping guys out there in the bullpen the difference between its. Know about it right evidently are all of the bullpen today coming in giving him hiding you know and and automating nobody gets on base. Maybe don't forget about all right maybe nobody doubts. If you haven't talked about that went through because there's a closer yet we have fun. Helpful Kelly and give me all warm to the bullpen which can grow to. Not qua non save situation right through it tells me he's confident or maybe just want to throw. Jose right I don't think I've won this game. This witness history. Yeah I think he was just thrown anywhere I don't think he was coming in that five point. If you just wanna. So because authored so I don't know if you didn't get a call nobody said get warmed did how. But yes as you know I just play one on one of the ball. The other thing right. At some point you know you didn't use eminent four outs today okay in his in his. In this game there's no really no guarantee. You know the good use of all next three days or you might lose a couple of them you might win seventy to one so then you end up pitching to guide because isn't thrown four days and game. It's either all one way or the other or we gotta get a war. It is Evan used them. So it's in the a lot of these guys you can't run again it's another state last night he got four out save because of thousands but he got another save so it's a in baseball sometimes it's like you got a W there of four out save you gotta use Kimbrel an. Because you know it and he might look another opportunity for a couple of days there was a three to four daisy and throwing him in in game down 61 or game the erupt ninth through. Because he is in total three or four days marquis shut the only. And I think this is excuse would have been after the game if he brought him in and a four run game and he wouldn't have told anybody because he plays the CEO when he doesn't give you the information. But deep down inside he'd be sitting at saint I need to test Kimball right now outside of save situations because I'm in need him during the course of the season outside save situations and let's face it he doesn't adapt well. In non save situation that would be the only excuse. I could see from him use in case. And I would just just to Panama by the way he was he's the only game tomorrow who Louis okay throw that did try to help line at the show you want to get out. Now let me give you the best I. She. That it started back and talented guy I remember dry hopping in the back of the Jabrel eight panel. And you try story. Here Abbott don't want her here is that. Did he ever finish. Analysts say about all they do that did you ever go over those trapped fresh out of the white side. There's all sorts of opportunities but Lou will be doing the game tomorrow that's why the reason that you admired for and report on facility look out at this Dave Dombrowski did abreast of he's on my phone to not like it's ounces offices Leo there. Is offices with settlers or is there it is it is an elevator. There is an elevator and yet the case though he'll probably make you play one of those things don't. And because from get some exercise.

And then he don't that'll be excellent you'll be welcome annual they'll be Fenway Park won't be that anymore to be or wait part of sports for itself. The ball. Hello all I had to go all your next showed evidence of how rich they have a hundred bucks over the mandate basically united now has been. Admitted be screwed up is carries an easier you can now buy a hospital with a LB doctors that he can get sacked much sex as he wants in on it. You know. There's got yeah. Oh my god and write this guy sounds like he's really ready to take advantage of this that you you don't hear so. Now this does seem like big idol thank. It was an unfortunate. This situation the lady politics five million and I'll be good now this dude is gonna take them for every that lady kind of yelling you know on the video of the year old my yeah. Yeah that is going to be the next story in this. There's gonna be passengers. Were dealing with mental distress after witnessing now. In the left to united well David got somebody it was you know. I am still having nightmares. Over the vision of what I saw. Four billion dollars mental issue at least a first class act in that shoots are certainly well. Does not pile on those that want some agreement. Equity use under the and with Hosea Letterman let them you know don't wanna let them just like at a guy wants to rip Al Horford so let's give the time our his radiant core. And yet that the new. There's room and you use our current and what you had jumped dynamic. Lines so little analytic. I can't tell yet how much where it's at. All. Now Al Horford you know intimate contact player in it. It at 3031 million dollars. It's been looking into Linux. The night. You know in Portland against there. Not top here in Newton equal. Duckett mean handled. He's not senator Ted and while he's Johnson. Well let's not only now. Well and detained men pulled so far in the Arctic cat and local supplement. Are now what are we got a million. And I mean. Kevin Love and has pretty much that you saw a few years now you know I'll sock you didn't know what it would then make health worker if you get pulled out in yet. All at all. Yeah it. It's it's it's less about its resolve its installed. The addition to all about set the screens and again enroll in an effective and diet and opened it really can't but do you think do you think and we just heard work talk about he would do the whole deal all over again. Do you think airline. What do you think they're really buying into. No because they went unanswered and they had that's bought the film and a sizeable money it's about acquired a player that's just how much money he cost so I don't think it regretted. At all I think they really buying into what he brings to the table. And it in the proper way that is. You better hold onto Isiah Thomas because what he's doing is he's allowing you. To have a undersized planner the able to put up thirty a night what is notably in the thing that's he's he's not a superstar in his sleep the day so. Be because of that. He's gonna have some bad games. When he has a bad game you. What he has waiting to disappears and doesn't show lop it turns into a B don't see the little things. You know I'm just not legit it that is wrong now it's legit not everybody is great I mean I say it's been pretty consistent usage you know at some I mean really good games but even got like Avery Bradley Jae Crowder. It's like when these guys don't play well they don't shoot well whatever it is you see any morning JD Mora. At a Avery people look at it play well you say that about Al Horford and it's a touch. It and I don't put quit we need to play well you don't know basketball. Third players that's in on me that's a RRR a guy does that and again all the voters those games disappears and Indy is important that this team. Invaded on the offensive rebounding side is nobody does he's on a permit all time but defensively grab a rebound. Offensively at times with a shot help but that's secondary scorn that's all he's got games like everybody else you know what he does he should be able to say dead. Do you think that they initially wanted him to be. The center of that offer but the sediment basins do you think they wanted him. To have the off and go through him Mel made him realize that organize it that he does go through him in many Blondie and it'll doesn't it doesn't mean he's looked really does is it didn't expect Eliza yeah it's a pick several and it's it's a passing game. And that's what he brings to anybody can charm can't find another guy that can beckoned pass and set screens and and that has a decent shot I mean I mean that is that's all you're asking him to do. To really be a glorified role player is what it feels like to me you like glorified role player. Okay it picks. Up at picks screens dirty work. We're talking about getting Italy or talk about eat every now and when somebody else it's double covered as you make they eight foot jumper argue having spin move how many countermoves do you have when your honor when your underneath that underneath about it. I think they knew what he was that we all sat here and watched him last year in the playoffs and we're not overly impressed because he's not one of those guys when you watch him. That impresses you he does is they like to say all the little things but here's where I grew glow they're gonna be gates here in the playoffs coming up the next couple weeks. In which people are gonna call when the the Celtics lose because Isaiah Thomas only scores 22. Or eighteen areas tough shooting night. And people are gonna sit there screaming about Al Horford. Al Horford will go out and do exactly what he does every other night and that he has moved the basketball keep the offense and a fall. Get the ball back to Isaiah Thomas but because Isaiah Thomas ends up going. Five for eighteen or five for 24 or something. Idiotic figure like that. People are gonna point the finger at Al Horford or don't want to lose OK for his nights when I say it's yet doesn't happen. For Al Horford beating out who gives you it's 44 point oh yeah well that's what you look at themselves and I don't and he's right. I'm not sure that happens with his game I think it's a rarity. I really did he kind of so it could have if he's gonna still do what he does witches. Do all the although we do all the little things he's Isaiah today we Sosa now I had covered up novice that next man up is Avery Bradley. I so now you're not decent guys it is he's double covered right he's and he's cold. So we gotta give the ball somebody else does or not after taking more shots today got to get David Bradley now you're you're next man not. I I would Lou if if if that's not working out OK with rob the system you run run it through him when Eagles COLT ar what he's double covered now it's up to you. Now you need to shift gears and you need to become a scorer he's innocent you'll not a facilitator anymore score yeah that's not gonna happen. I think it's going to be and where that tornado went ahead troubled that a good guy you're hoping Avery Bradley has a hot hand you better. Catalytic at the high G Crowder has a hot hand doctors are still you're not changing anything years. You can get you mitigate the you you know you gonna get that night from from Kelly. Have a not one of these countries as well we I would what you want to say it had to deal marks the spot might get a couple of yeah it's you or Kelly don't pay a game differently defensively we know that relevant. Carl Levin is night and we're talking about guys seventeen points or be valuable. Put consistently I think it's got to be Avery Bradley the be guided out there average in 1617 points in the post season DB 24 once in awhile. And then I look at out. Is he is saying okay we know twelve shots playoff Dmitry 1213 consistently each and every night at 612. Involved. It is no reason why in these type of player that is shown that he can Google do DB 189. You know on an ID eighteen and eight Islam better than the single digit eight. And five rebounds that we see sometimes for him I think opening up before Bradley is the key and Bradley is the key meetings reporters. You know we're talking about it during the break. It's amazing the stat that really winds up with your best teams. It's three point shooting percentage and what do you have here San Antonio we have Cleveland and you have Golden State and you tell me. That the threes are not important and you gotta post up and you gotta do this outlaw all forget about it. You win by opening up the floor and hitting threes and moving the ball all the way San Antonio does the legal whose pay cut to free up those shooters. That's what Boston's trying to do. But they have to hit the shots of Boston by the wizard good three point shooting team this year but all these other teams do to Isiah Thomas right now. Is the trap again on that often pick overall that's all they don't want to comes off that pit bull trap. And that's where Horford I would agree with. That's were Horford becomes the recipient of that return pass from Isaiah where maybe you can do something right yet. I don't think you can expect him. To sit here other than hits wrestling. He's a three point shooter that's what corporate brings to the table he gives you a sliding lessons they got what does one think that as an adult I don't wanna bigger than just the site. I don't I want in his Cleveland. I'd I don't wanna I think he can take it I think he tells it and take it to the basket got a huge threes you should know I don't want to ask you don't let alone any issues there are so they don't wanna posting. I wanted to be open floor tickets in the past he's a big guy that plays like a small right take it to the basket fine. It is the first of all if I just it's three if you get the street if you get the defender to come out on the perimeter and and pick up on you what he's gonna play for the shot. Most cases he has the athletic ability to spin to dribble and to get off that guy right and take it to the hole. If that guy doesn't come out there. He's got to take that reporter right. That's his game but everybody keeps on saying always got to be his brute that's gonna get great for you know presence down on the block. That's not his game that's not what he does not the elbow. Answers you have to push them. You know that I at Charlotte and give it to him yeah you'll take that shot there was that when a post up he's not Kevin McHale we all understand it. But you know he spreads the floor out I just think that god forbid if you ask for illegal there'd actually be involved in the offense more shooting. You changed. If you're not. But he takes bigs out of the perimeter and if they don't come out with a he burns of with a three point shot that set shot he takes that weird you know when let me get a Mike McCarthy Mike. A guy only went with the biggest weakness topics. It freaked out when sect. I don't think it I don't think it's been as bad since the all star break if you look at it it's not. Really that bad. You know Cleveland's got probably revolve bombing of post season it's one of the week off I think that in a second and clear second score that's the biggest fourth quarter guided us the victory. 820 equate 81 genes beat out after their. They're twenty record three women out rebound their. And if you look at the back. It's mind coming back out or Kirk ever let readout for games at the bigger and harder it right. And I mean I do you look at the bat at that. About analytic or bird. It is doubtful after every loop that the problem all year you people on the market economics that all year. And I mean you look pain or 88 feet and. Now you wonder now you you weren't they knew exactly what he was he was fourteen he scored to give you six or seven assessed he's not gonna turn the ball over. He's gonna move your offense I mean I. And Lou I think you're missing the point that say about taking the ball inside you stretch out your offense and they do take people off the dribble. I don't want standstill basketball we you're dropping your bigs down on the block that teams all of it back in 1987. That's the difference. Take the ball to the hole but set up on the perimeter and take people began spreading up the court. Which is what Horford does he opens up lanes for everybody. That's what he does well but there's still a three point shooting team. They yeah they're the best out of us the best teams in the league all of an appearance Antonio Cleveland goes they'd be very good at doing very Celtics are good three point shooting team. They have changed from what they were a year ago that is probably the thing they have really improved on the most. They Ari good three point shooting I OK we're to think their record three point percentage. Probably. Mean twelve to fifteen somebody like an exact they also being a wise at a very good from that point you TW fourteenth the movie approval rules they take the third most threes of any team I understand Houston takes forty game. Okay Cleveland 634 they take 33 I know a lot of it has to do with the number six or don't O'Donnell running into a study done OK yes yes I. Yeah yeah yeah that's awesome you take the third most recently. It your fourteenth in field goal percentage and a three point percentage and so. You take more than anyone or did the other than other than Houston. And yet you still fourteenth in percentage you don't in not hitting. You Merrill the pack yet they were actually Lou you wanna look back a month ago I think they were six 73 I don't have it there they want to tell you they're now now they've had a bad month industries but that's what they are. If you're looking at the make up of the team that's what they are I think clearly I would've switched to hockey here because you've got a Mac avoid. Coming right out of the U. And starting in a playoff game tonight. Sharma Decker and who played for the Bruins pricing in one channel seven on on Sunday night's. Talking hockey he came out of you know understands what it's all about. He came out of the we played in the US national team and then you play that same season. For the Pittsburgh Penguins that he came up late in the season and guess what he played a lot. In the playoffs he might have a good idea as to what Mac Voight is facing here tonight in Ottawa he joins us coming up next.
