[0:03:32] ... information and you did your homework. But the bottom line is replaced Jon Lester with -- I'm saying my bad -- it from the exact aren't they left. -- -- And it only got like three ...
[0:04:25] ... ago. -- so quickly. In this is the problem people talk about Jon Lester. Love that I'm Sandra Beth callers but are you -- get today but I know a lot of good it was good that we've probably got here so answer as quickly. It's what quickly that group Lee has. A fantastic president. It's like just like Jon Lester lipped about the other day look at the career numbers letters and be surprised so. As a fantastic resonate just like Jon Lester. He he has won a World Series. It's like Jon Lester makes a lot of money. So what's the point. If your point is you don't wanna -- job last year. There -- gonna pay Cliff Lee how old closely. He's older than -- thirty. So you eat you can lock in the three to shorter term will cost it about women -- 35. If it does he think it is up 35 -- League east 3535. Only 36 and August okay and Iowa about 33 Bob that's out your window don't really stupid. -- really -- with Jon Lester and why does everyone wanna go into the contract yet under the contract is not going to be chances are you play the percentages. He would not have you won't be great at the age of 3536. On the which -- paying for is is let's say 31. The 343135. The numbers say you probably gonna get a good performance out of Jon Lester. For four years. And then he's asking for the extra year. I don't know after four now back then back in a sprint probably with the -- five. And you're there are not going beyond for example that a market. It's going to be in Adams right about that goes the market is going to be 67 has got a lot of money regardless. What you flight suit your replacement for Jon Lester is gonna cost you. A lot. And Cliff Lee is also only under contract for next year with a vesting option for the year after all the most you'd have them for is two years after this year. And he's going to be 36 next. It makes no sense to me and crap and get a better argument to be made in my opinion. If what he tried to say west -- -- it like Henry Owens Bledel thinks ready. But that's fine I I understand the youth movement that's going on here and Guerrero had six RBI yesterday let's get him up here -- play short. But I think Cliff Lee is a better argument than Henry -- at least you know. What Cliff Lee is now hearing Owens of is a good looking prospect. And he's have a great season at double you look at what ...
[0:07:29] ... knows. So that can't be you could say. That's a replacement for Jon Lester but that's a replacement for Jon Lester and of their answer that's your answer. Then you've got to go this is the unknown he could be great could flee yeah. You know -- could be the next Clayton Kershaw. Or it can be an -- Brian rose. Lindsay now and easy now click on it Darnell boy I don't know what are your boy Cliff Lee makes 25 this year 25 next year. Of vesting option is 27 and a half. Wanna -- Jon Lester and watch almost six years younger. Red Sox spent the wanna pay him that much I I don't picket the plan but ...
