Dale, Michael and Jerry Thornton discuss David Ortiz's self-penned piece which took on such topics as steroids, the media, his contract and more. And we get into a back and forth about the fan perception of him in Boston, and why he can be so polarizing at times, even with the on-field track record he has.

[0:00:06] ... gives athletes an opportunity. To take their message to the masks. Today David Ortiz did that. In a piece entitled the dirt. And David Ortiz underneath his and his name says editor at large. So particular times editor at large and does it matter to me that ...
[0:02:21] ... I could take a pill to make me right as well as David Ortiz wrote that I would take that they'll. Is that because that thing was well done it was brilliantly. It like. Why the anger it it was like an answer to a question that nobody asked. You also get ready for the season you didn't expect this whatever 8000 word angry street out of Ortiz defend in his honor that. And with that it seems like it's a moot point to. It's not a moot point though. It's not a moot point because when you talk about David Ortiz did what David Ortiz of Boston. Most people say clutch. Big time ambassador. Unbelievable. Appear Red Sox hall of Famer. And probably in baseball with regard ...
[0:04:07] ... whatever happens this I don't mind I liked I I like angry David Ortiz it's weird to me that he was angry as the years. Because he is you know you read it rarefied air when it comes to popularity. I mean a cavity as I know he isn't. Think about this now in this town. And I always said this about children. After the Red Sox won the World Series series in the bloody sock it to Curt Schilling will never have to buy them a mile Revere in this town again and they turned on in this town. David Ortiz for a guy who has brought as much two losses as he has as much as any athlete not named Brady in ...

Dale and Michael talk Bruins after they managed to snatch defeat from the claws of victory and blow a late game lead to the Anaheim Ducks. With the playoffs still in question, the Bruins need more efforts like that, and more luck.

[0:00:15] ... you haven't seen on Twitter there's a whole Twitter capture thing with Corey Perry interfering with. With that Tuukka Rask and all that stuff float was upset about it too harassed upset about it but that they missed call. And Corey Perry ties the game on the gold where he interfered with a Rask in the crease. And then you get to overtime. You ...
[0:02:30] ... the players they think that that some of the players have underperformed. Zdeno Chara and Tuukka Rask probably get a fair chunk of the blame. Because you expect so much out of them. That anything less than what to expect as a disappointment. Absolutely Peter surely gets blamed Claude Julien gets blame. I I'd say the only guy who seems to be ten foot tall and bulletproof at the moment is Patrice Bergeron. He might be the only guy. Who you know it's kind of blameless at this point postured act doesn't get much blame ...

We discuss Shane Victorino's call-out of another local radio show, and debate the merits of Victorino's claims.

[0:04:29] ... he has been pretty forthright in the past about wanting to get Cole Hamels on the state. Kind of grew up in the baseball world with Cole Hamels plate with them teammate friend all let's stop and Cole Hamels of very good pitcher in the Majorly. And what what chain Victor Reno said two way Philadelphia reporter and I'm paraphrasing here was basically. You know you hope that your prospects eventually become a guy like Cole Hamels. So if you've got the opportunity to acquire a guy like Cole Hamels and give up prospects you do it every time. And at least one media outlet in this town took that to mean that he was taking shots at McKee that's. Simply because Betts was a threat to his playing position on the team and I don't think he is that's is the center fielder. Chain victory know the right field that rusty cast steel might be the threat to his playing position here but I don't think it's smoky vets. Or that he was taking shots at the five pitchers in the current rotation. Basically saying I'd rather have Cole Hamels here than one of them. I probably would rather have Cole Hamels here at them. One or two of them killed so I mean he's always I rather have Cole Hamels and say Blake why hard auto don't talk about pitchers in the rotation. Of the of the five pitchers in the rotation at this point as he was dogged by anybody in the clubhouse right but he else won him. He back and they call it today about that and said you know hey I'll I I'd go to war with those five guys anytime right because you know. If you want Cole Hamels in it means one of the five guys in the rotation now would have to be gone. And my point is yeah I'd rather have Cole Hamels then. Couple weeks maybe all this is I'm not rather Cole Hamels that any of the five in there. This is what. Victor you know and say and I wouldn't Cole Hamels than any of the five not because if he bit his career hasn't been outstanding but. Based on what I think you'll do going forward and my questions about what to do in the American League to accurately the American League east but anyway it's a call him. Shane Victorino said. Quote all I said was hey we get Cole Hamels and is giving up two or three guys I'm all for it. I never said anybody's name. And by the way he's ...
[0:11:43] ... who you know can perform at the Major League level. Talking about Cole Hamels so he's he's actually correct that he never talked about this guy or that night we inferred it. Because one of the things we have read out of Philadelphia is that the the Phillies if they were interested in trading Cole Hamels would want a guy like will keep them disaster or sore right I mean. He didn't say that infect maturing but he ...
[0:13:37] ... is kind of animal that we deal with no one of that Sean Payton was in the same thing the other day at the owners' meetings. When it came to that speculation that they're trying to trade drew breeze right right is that there's not one iota of truth to it. Drew Brees has a lot of good football left in him he's left in me the clean liver that he gave takes care of his body is superb athlete we have no. Interest in trading Drew Brees but if somebody says that. Now are you think it's true I gotta go in Diego with Philip Rivers the exact same scenario playing out now but he also would bring that back to Shane Victorino. What are you doing. I mean it's there's. You're here you're actually throwing sand into the wind when he got to do oh it's not gonna change this is the reality. Of but I do think that that what happened wise there was a Philadelphia Inquirer story. That said in a chain victory know so I give up prospects to get a guy like Cole Hamels and there was another separate tweet your story somewhere out there somewhere that set. Well the Phillies are interest that in bats and and lakes why heart and it then became washing Victor Reno wants to trade bets and why are to get Cole Hamels. That's how it it it kind of got present it he's just trying to get rid of a guy who's who's gonna ...
[0:16:52] ... all set now McKee that's him should he. You'd trade me for Cole Hamels when that's not what he said at all but that's now it's how being portrayed in some places. What would you do would you trade smoky transfer Cole Hamels. You see I say mean stuff. No it I would yeah I've I've I probably would not. I it. I I understand in theory what. What victory and it was talking about with. A proven Major League player bring you know what your getting Thacker you know Cole Hamels is a Major League player will keep that's sure looks like he's going to be. And it's founded I mean what what ...
