It's. We run. And you had. And without a lot about it and what everything wanna this was. I would I would run out of time so important. Maybe they can do that shelters and I think. Ready to spend the next one in my life. I like cities definitely. I think that the I only stayed too long and I think it's a good time for him to go and we're gonna talk more about him and I wanted to let you know coming up. About quarter past the hour about 915. Or talk about one of the most annoying game. Mavs Fed's going on with young teenage kids and parents out there grandparents. You are gonna wanna get involved in this conversation 915. This is the is gone so far. Big that the papers or even writing about it when I saw this morning I never I can't happily of this because over the weekend we had such an issue of this at my house. So this is acting racquet you can't just be sure that you stay with us 915 as we care about them. Let's start of other popular bit more. Because obviously you have a rather large weekend coming up here at Fenway Park. Rian Gordon needs is that a proper title. Yeah as blog if you you know I was I'm glad I was listening to actual. Cal or that 915 segment because I hurt. That in most annoying and I don't like. The Donna hardly at that will see how it goes hornets had just been glued. Obviously here's what you can indeed probably read about this story adapter 35 years so be it on the other side eight Gina bought it. Yeah I do work for the club now so it's it's been kind of cool to see things from the inside. Awesome I mean I guess that's not storybook inn and it's not down to the wire for the pennant or for the division and there's nothing on the line in these games which. In a way makes it a little bit easier doesn't it to celebrate them. Absolutely and in the impact. I know that. You know the folks who are claiming he says celebration here are barely. Chairman Kenneth. I know she was so concerned about that keeping a balance between. I'm celebrating gave inning giving him that send up we wanna give a bit also being mindful of fact that hey you know there's some ball games to be won here but. The fact that we not only clinch a spot in the playoffs but now. Clinch the division title in admittedly guys the most bizarre fashion and possibly be. Into The Who witnessed the curriculum and like the other he walked off. We pay out walk off Grand Slam home run it's it's not really go where you script it. The European gets report card I can log I I think you made a very strict point and that is. That our our share your sentiment that I'm. It's great to see David go off the golf. On top of his game. In on his terms so we've seen too many athletes are in particular all over stay. You know we're we're their skills eroded through it to the point where almost embarrassing. Arc to watch certain that certainly hasn't been the case with David in. In your part for everyone who says you know gosh we Rasheed come back for another year how and he stopped when he's still getting it done. To this level. Trust me if they saw what it takes to get David Barrett played game on on a daily basis for physical therapy. He grows are you know bird that Achilles tendon in Asia is still extremely troublesome in his leg here. Can't doctored and direct and indirect talks medical staff that have done an amazing job. Keep an Ortiz as how the SE has been this entire year. I I hate it would we see them go out of their detected in the fans are detected. This is a great celebration. He's a hero to the end we hope till the end of October by the way hit. Time will tell right but I I like to see them go out this way. They are in any noted that it is a beautiful thing that particularly after two laps I expenditures. That David has the chance to look go back out are on the October stage. One final time because if anyone knows it Red Sox fans know what but what if David does. When the brightest lights go on I mean what he did in the 2013 pollsters were. We're historic you know eleven and it could succeed at bats are you kidding me. It and that it but to walk off hits against the Yankees which. Which to me. You know that those two hits came in the course of one calendar days if you remember new game or ended biker 1:30 in the morning get a big game five ended at oak. The same calendar day at 11 o'clock at night. Book ended by two Ortiz walk off hits it it to me that gay altered the course or wrecked our history and and he's been the connective thread. Our search all three World Series and in Kiev the chance to hear it if the Red Sox scored a run the table in October when they get. Our he would join Harry Hooper and see only Red Sox players in history to play for or World Series winner. How I would not all the area Oprah that's why you're the historian and I know people asked earlier. People as early about regional Ortiz memories for me you go back to 04 in those two hits you talk about and it was after those were. I forget the exact quote you my remember Gordon wood but poppy said. You know at some point I can't do this all by myself or I'm going to need some help. In what was interesting about that is to me it wasn't that he was you know bragging or any. It showed you adult level that. He was at that time dragon that team until many finally got going come the World Series he wants to win it by himself. Here in in you know there's also the great scene in and that I don't know you. It's so it's ought to have a net. Oh I think I'm going into the Ted Williams Tunnel data about these driving here with a loss to Canada parent Texas is where is that Harry Hooper bridge. Overtime you do lose things but baseball then wasn't what it is now Myron are you absolutely blah right. Right and players at that point were they doing things for the city I mean again you have to kind of go back to the idea that. You know he's done things for this city and I think he's meant something the city more than just being enormously port right back. And I I don't know where I want guys I would I would dare I couldn't hear you act cleared by. It's modern technology. Why don't shift gears for a second Gordon because. Something went on a baseball last night that I know your fully aware of being in a baseball lover that is just an unbelievable our age and I'm fascinated to see with the commissioner does on this. St. Louis Cardinals obviously in a pennant racer playoff chase the one game behind the San Francisco Giants. There are hiding in the ninth inning guy hit the ball to the wall. Guy come in from first rounds third they send me beats the throw cardinals win stay in the playoff chase. Clearly they're reviewed shows that it should've been a ground rule double it didn't bounce off the wall and bounced off an advertisement a ball the wall. But the umpires refused to come back on the field from the locker room to even consider. Whether retrieved doable. And they potentially could have screwed the San Francisco Giants out of toilet spot when that decision follows is allowed to stand. Britain dead that is it that is an epic log in and I don't know all the specifics of why the umpires. I certainly wouldn't come back optic big big now that the challenge wasn't made it it timely action. But you hate to see that obviously wouldn't win a game. Has. Those kind of Islam. On implications. That it greeted back whether he plays in October not. I suppose. They could play the game under protest now put the game under wraps but even that is separate back. So they may just have to live within minutes it took it to an embarrassment no question. It's not a gray area I mean the video is absolutely crystal clear it's not like he did really crazy or not. It's crystal clear did not hit the wall and hit the sign behind the wall. And it's unbelievable that this happens when a that you cluster cardinals or something. I am planning to defend a replay but if you're gonna use re playing in this fashion and make a situation worse by not using it. Then it makes me question whether it's even worth it. Yeah I mean to end and are from your years citing an art and obviously rare circumstance but. Renewed spirit note transport so. It'll be interesting to see the commissioner's office response that this but I I suspect. They're just gonna let the outcomes stand in intra day we Lewis. Corners last a blessing for me is good is the weekend's gonna be a big part in the celebration it's going to be. Go to the playoffs are you one of these guys it is trying to figure out the best path for the Red Sox or does it matter whether they get Toronto or Texas or Cleveland did you just did once just a playoff system files. Yeah I mean that certainly. You do try the you don't think about the map search and think about. Yeah will go and do whatever we can chew nailed down home field advantage through the entire playoffs and and right now our. That's not looking great were behind taxes. But that's why I said these games mean something. Two loss as well now. You could say well it's these games mean so much why did John girl sits already restarted yet sir well. Looks to me like they have a little bit of a celebration Wednesday night's I don't know it's a prepared to play. Yesterday anyway but. Beat out there that may. The important thing after it was to win the division. I can get him as a wild card risk having it all and in one game tightened their. That's. You know it it takes one hot pitcher to add your serve at least this way. Are you given. Five game task to advance since. And I. You know I love the way direct talks are playing right now I I think German Andrea. After Wednesday's. Where were we. What should division certain that scenery is he was another club he wouldn't wanna be great support our sort out its first. We're playing very well in in every facet of the game and and are likely that it would with port so it in price that there is their front of their rotation and buckles. Has had quite buckles who would've thought that he'd be pitching meaningful games. At this time a year given the way this season like copper but. He said number two hours and do you mean you sit at a price I think right now. Art or you know I mean price cut got knocked around. By the Yankees this week but let's not forget he's 818 straight decisions before that so he's been pitching pretty well and and and clay. Clay is still kind of a wild card I mean we've seen good clay at work and good clay it's very very good but we're not secede bet clay. So. I still have a lot of confidence that paper prices they're step up big. But he he he made a great comedy guys remember it at its introductory press conference that he was asked. A pot detected yet won any games in the postseason in his career he said. I think are probably been saving all my playoff wins were bought Google and then let let's see if he could make that. A reality at this October. Gordon needs thanks so much for employed. You welcome it and it's going to be a party this weekend and I think. You're gonna CO a lot of great Red Sox players past and present that show up to barter Ortiz says they're better. You know recognizes philanthropy tonight it is price the pot yeah. In New England I heard you guys references that great speech you made after the marathon and then. So I may choose to honor him as a player so it should be a lot of fun apparently this week. That it will. Thanks very much Gordon it's 859 on the WRKO boston.com morning show.
