We discuss Derek Jeter, excuse me, the All-Star game controversy sparked by Cardinals Pitcher Adam Wainwright concerning Derek Jeter's first at-bat.
We tackle four topics all sparked by the Derek Jeter and Adam Wainright supposed 'grooved' pitch in the All-Star game.

[0:00:51] ... we're going to that. Now since Adam Wainwright glue that -- to Derek Jeter in the first inning we're gonna start right there do you have a problem. With the grooved a pitch in an all star game. Who won the last two. -- towards a quarter. Racing around worse beating -- this second and he's got a double. I feel like that it's sweet digs it out of the corner. I'll go first I had no issues I don't have any issues now I didn't have any issues that I don't care what if you would Derek Keys. Well as Derek Jeter said after the game he was asked about it they set -- got to hit it. Public view I have no problem -- -- -- Michael let them stand up there with a bad my hands you you come down Broadway avenue tickets if you do it on purpose thanks a lot. Well my only problem with that is that Derek Jeter didn't hit a home run outside all the data pointed -- you really do it. -- -- this and make it real dramatic but it was great I think people wanted to see it. The only mistake. Adam Wainwright made is just mentioning it and no I'm not in charge of big mistake he mentioned it to stick with that don't back away from. But I think. If you're at that game and you're watching -- TV you wanted to hear hear most wanted Derek Jeter to get hit and got the result that you were looking for. No problems. -- -- we are Michael this time. It ...
[0:05:52] ... career without that injury would you think you would have to -- Willis McGahee yes electric great call you're like god I like got a lot because. If we talked about this before and we we ...
[0:09:30] ... they did not -- knowledge the untimely in recent deaths of both Don Zimmer and Tony Gwynn. I I noticed where are our buddy Bob -- just tweeted out about it a few minutes ago as well. Most people ...
[0:10:52] ... game one of the World Series there's some sort of tribute to Don Zimmer and Tony Gwynn. And and others who Major League Baseball may have lost over the last years while -- -- you -- But yeah I ...

[0:01:21] ... -- beast yeah yeah and about it the day they articulate over Peyton Manning and some good arguments yeah. Well you know spirited angry if you happen to say one minute negative thing about Tom Brady or Bill Belichick did not -- them an old gold and how about that they got from patriot. Donna Jared Norton let you go -- ...
[0:02:01] ... -- Tom box down to the sideline. And she was wearing -- Louis Vuitton dress I got to -- was wearing his outfit from Arctic air -- a couple of I don't blame the control -- ...




We discuss further developments in the Sox efforts to lock up Jon Lester to a long term deal to remain in Boston.

[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 ...
[0:08:55] ... host in this town and part of the blog entry but comparing Wes Welker. And Jon Lester. In that case it was the player that started off in ridiculously. Three years 51 million. For Wes Welker was the starting ground this for now remember a guy who bet to win thirteen or two and twelve right. This was ...
