I'm delighted to welcome back to the IKO studio Stephanie -- he's the voice of KO eight in Denver he's been broadcasting from the studio the kind of -- are extra studio we have here in RKO. How long what do you think you've seen two games Stephon I said at the outset I want you to hear this first from me before you -- -- any crap from any of those guys. You guys get a good team are a lot of Iraqis -- detained. They are good team and you haven't seen this good team out 22 strikeouts in two games and a pitching staff that's nowhere near the Red Sox pitching staff nobody's they'd even trying to. Ticket to make that statement but when you walk 15 guys in two games -- you're not going to win and I don't care it's a scrimmage game last spring training game or here in the -- -- Are you set yourself up for at least challenge of not -- you know outright defeat. And in the Sox could've maybe there was the potential to break it open but I love -- club I mean I look at those guys and it's not just Tulowitzki and you know this hot rookie who seems to really be making his own statement you know mapped -- holiday what it. What began its last -- what out of five hits -- team -- -- in every ball was well hit and it was I'm not saying you know 450 foot line -- and but every ball policy it's -- he's not intimidated by a 97 mile and how fast -- Curt -- -- are anything else that guy can play the game you get a -- good plays that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They're gonna win four straight Johnson reds are against the -- -- you know it's interesting that we talked about that mood in all the like if you if you win Saturday's game you know it's going to become electrified out that you know you out but telling you anything you don't know and those Iraqi might -- -- about the noise that. I -- the -- yeah you're gonna you're gonna get -- -- -- -- -- gonna get a batch if the -- if the Red Sox should be the Iraqis I will personally like him personally deliver but or cities of rocky mount north well what every you use a lot of ranch but Katie Connor asks us. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well yeah I think all of us who watch -- -- those those are peaceful always spoke. We get decent gains -- be quite honest with -- -- policies that we haven't gotten those whose great agers see you know fighting which gains so -- want -- This they while -- is great in in the north -- -- in turn certainly. Boston's favorite two lowlands known Colorado sorts -- they achieve their goal and now our you know they have two see what happens coarse steel with a rock user exceptionally good human. Yeah and Daisuke will be asked out of for game three. Yeah base area you know he brought that are so last -- on the previous outings -- you know you know as you're obvious he would just two pitching in the all our week -- before. In nobody's used to do that well and -- the same things is why I'm mode and that is keep the ball around especially at all part in the fall quite there. In -- oh if that'll strikes both sides of the late in. Does that -- he's in control. What should we expect for the status for PR games for a five do it to any of those decisions depend upon the outcome of game three nick all will to you know we'll Tito just got to stay with. You know logical progression. -- media doesn't really you know do much it is different really people. Jon Lester which is commute very exciting he might think everybody active and what he's going through -- -- -- in the -- to be in. And you're very emotional start and so yeah -- game warden they should come back with. -- effected in but that the western started I think is what one once role I'll look forward to. Yes you knows it was through the with the answer in the in therapy and is compact really quickly from all the real world that there. If it's an interesting life experience and you know sometimes -- -- you know be in -- the benefit of being maybe India late 30s or early 40s. If you have a prospective this -- a young kid who have gone through all of that and that has to be as you say this will be an extraordinarily emotional moment from from a business point of view Francona is going to have to make sure that. The emotions that drive our of that to him himself standing on that mound as the World Series startup of the Boston Red Sox having overcome what -- has gone through. Doesn't doesn't distract him from is the objective. Yeah you know these these -- really always it to mean he. If he you know his first start the -- for start the major leagues he is against Cleveland's it's. It was six very very that first though oh in in -- -- questioned in the woods and the resources that he goodies you would have been out there so they they really think in in -- this he's been throwing -- world two weeks of the season you know he's really that some commandos all -- April 1993 -- left hander that's pretty. You know -- what we're talking and nick of -- well baseball -- for the Boston Globe in a fabulous column today which by the way we're gonna post up here on my parents forum I say required reading. When nick a -- writes about the guy Ives a -- to call trick Schilling. The professor. And based upon your insights nick in your column today my sense is that showing is really a dual purpose guy he's guy you can get innings out of credible performances an exceptional performances in the post season but he's an instructor is rallies that teacher. He's a professor with a wealth of experience and he got some young guys to benefit from that. Well I really believe that in in -- wrote waved back you know -- her if you don't which would no hitter against the Oakland reflections of sign them up for another year right in the area and I know a lot of emails saying goes crazy and any didn't do so well in the occurred in it was ideal for awhile back he's combined very strong. But you know it is no pitching there it is. Is that the market which really dried up. You know you'd have collected prose so I'll vote -- available and those guys are. Probably -- starters with opt for your patience so. There are such recognized this last year when they would they would -- -- -- masses there wasn't much out there and so what you have a eight. In equated to the only -- he's going after weapons again as. You know people think well you know legal up equipment because you know he's so great trip by and that's part of that the the other part is. Is impact on the team and I think actually. It's just talk to the other story pitchers he has great in them. You know he can spot oh saying that it's doing wrong almost like the second pitching coach he's been -- he's. You know -- suspect now he's transition from our trip to a and a pitcher in it's so well you know you shouldn't agreement. One more year of this -- I think I think is no greater. You know that is exactly the quota is going to go right to a new column today -- you say this is the biggest no brainer in the history rip and and you know from Reading your column -- give us you give us insights like this Jamaica's privy to these facts such as. Curt Schilling. In your Beckett his eyes obviously operating on a level which is it's unbelievable and yet. Schilling is the professor he's helped Beckett he helps -- he helps Matsuzaka. He helps everybody very attacked talked about a post game with some some comets and I just don't think you can. All room values that the respect that he that he brings he's just such a competitive guy -- while -- rod pitcher. About Wakefield and timlin because I think that some of those decisions also relate would they not to the comfort level the Sox might have about re signing period -- Yeah I agree you know wait till -- they're concerned about is social issues which they they amused not structural buddies 41 even though he's been Michael fault that your. And all that he you know the an MRI that books he's been through the war you know. And is responding to the hours that you in the news and reduced the -- really it's there so they respect and so this year -- the world of course they also know or that your. Index -- apart pretty strong you know -- in the year and you know not true they're going to. -- in one more year -- -- want to oh with you know young -- Arms -- long arms so. I get the feel that that that it would mean certainly it's a decision would Wakefield although. The option year wheat -- -- very expensive you know it's it's four million dollars which you know what I expense in baseball terms. Yeah you know I I I don't want to -- -- ago -- side of the drama that we're enjoying present tense you know two games up and three following back to back to back in. In Colorado. Let's talk a little bit if we can't nick about the the offseason to names are coming to my mind one present with the club Coco Crisp is he is does he have value as a you know trade bait in anyway. And I keep hearing the name -- Johan Santana which would be I think probably the biggest name as at least as far as pitches in free agency. Well cocoa I think -- because he's from the equipment instances you're old -- uses is not -- -- bodies. It comes in goes in I think that's one of the problems with them and instrument still faces and so I think there will be teams out there that World -- in the trade. -- -- certain -- there a straight face though war in the decide that. If you would be accepting role as fourth outfielder which you would be tremendous. Of course you may pocket you know sorties by one of the most out there entry -- you'll incident and a would be from this year. The only problem is you know. Knowing the Minnesota Twins like -- -- -- -- the people who elected you know what they want you know they want Salisbury and they want buchholz. Well Omar although that changes the equation sure so much from him is Americans -- but you know tremendous pitcher -- so watcher. We'll listen nick a final we know you had a couple long nights India probably. You know soon to be on the ground -- Denver and the like you great to join us these last couple days in the column that.
