Former Red Sox ace Curt Schilling makes his weekly appearance with Kirk, Callahan and Wednesday's co-host Mike Giardi to talk Sox and politics.
The incredible season of David Ortiz continued with his 36th homerun on Tuesday night, which gets Kirk, Gerry and auditioning Mike Giardi talking Sox and Ortiz legacy.
Kirk Minihane heads to the Brangelina split for his top story on Wednesday's 'Headlines'
The first segment of the 7am hour Wednesday as Minihane is getting frustrated with the early parts of the show, which sends him off ranting about the Red Sox and what a lack of passion the topic brings.
The 6am hour upload from Wednesday's show as Mike Giardi is back on the Dino Casting Couch for a full four hours. The first hour features lots of Patriots QB talk as it appears Jimmy G is being pushed by Belichick to play through pain in Week 3.

“The only person who wins more than Bill Belichick is Kirk Minihane” –Gerry Callahan

The show today began with Kirk’s victory lap for single-handedly destroying Bart Hubbuch and causing Bart to delete his Twitter account and disconnect his cell phone. The show closed with a Hubbuch eulogy fit for the Queen of England.

After Hubbuch tweeted this yesterday:


Twitter attacked him, he deleted his account and became the latest addition to Kirk’s Testicle Alley.

Just imagine the sheer terror that guy must have felt when he heard, “This is Kirk Minihane.”

If you haven’t listened to Kirk’s podcast with Hubbuch, do that and you’ll understand better what a complete dumpster fire of a human being Bart is.

Mike Giardi was on the Dino Casting Couch and the guys discussed Garoppolo’s chances of playing in the near future.

All three guys agree we should pump the brakes on thinking the Patriots will rush him back.

And Giardi was a little pissy because he feels threatened by all the other guest hosts who are way better at this than he is.

Fueled by the incompetence of the producers, Kirk danced for Gerry and threw a solid tantrum about how no one cares about the Red Sox and “baseball is dead as disco” because it’s a Patriots world. This started a discussion about whether or not Ortiz is on steroids. And if John Henry lures Ortiz back and he doesn’t retire next year he does not have to return his retirement tour gifts.

Curt Schilling made his weekly appearance and doesn’t think Ortiz will return next season because the pain in his feet is a huge problem and the winter gets more challenging as you get older.

Schilling will be Periscoping the Trump-Clinton presidential debate on Monday, so watch that if you dare.

Gerry Callahan has never eaten a mango.

Line of the day: Kirk: “Roberto Clemente, did he have a good year before he retired?”

Call of the day: Mike in the car, began his call with “What?”

Producer contribution of the day: Ken Laird, “A mango is sweet. Papayas not so much.”

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that — poof — he is gone.

Bart Hubbuch, Troller in Chief. Angry, Patriots-hating New York media weasel. Wannabe nemesis to New Englanders everywhere who tried so desperately to make a name for himself by being the turd in our punch bowl, has deleted his Twitter account and skulked back into the shadows.

How and why ol’ Bart is gone from our midst are good questions. The “how” is a cautionary tale like something out of Greek myth. Hubris got the better of him. He posted some nonsensical horsecrap about how if the Patriots were to start Jacoby Brissett Thursday night, he’d be the first black quarterback to ever start a game for them and called it “a totally not-shocking fact.” In other words, pulling the old “I’m not calling your organization racist, but I’m totally calling your organization racist” stunt.

Like Icarus, Hubbuch flew too close to the red-hot sun that is the Patriots Twittersphere on this one. New England unleashed a furious hellfire on him, called him out for his senseless attention-whoring and made his cyberlife so miserable he took the coward’s way out by deleting his account. Which itself is a totally not-shocking fact.

The “why” is anybody’s guess. It’s possible his employers at the New York Post started questioning the wisdom of having a writer whose social media account exists solely to try to inflame readers in another market. Perhaps he just finally had a Come to Jesus moment and started questioning the error of his ways. Maybe he learned the hard way what so many anti-Patriots zealots and Deflategate Truthers before him discovered: Messing with Patriots fans takes a ferocious iron will. And not many are up to the task.

So see you, Bart Hubbuch. And good riddance. I’d say it’s been fun, but that would be a lie. And lies have always been your department.

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick

— As the shooting of another unarmed black man by a police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, stirred up racial tensions across the country, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he has received death threats for his national anthem protests.

Kaepernick said he considered he possibility that he might be targeted when he decided to start kneeling during the anthem.

“To me, if something like that were going to happen, you’ve proved my point,” he told reporters Tuesday. “It would be loud and clear for everyone why it happened. That would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now. Granted, I don’t want that to happen. But that’s the realization of what could happen.”

Kaepernick said he heard racial slurs among the insults hurled his way prior to the 49ers’ game this past Sunday against the Panthers in Charlotte, North Carolina — where there were riots Tuesday night following a police shooting of a black man in that city.

“There’s a lot of racism in this country disguised as patriotism and people want to take everything back to the flag but that’s not what we’re talking about,” Kaepernick said. “We’re talking about racial discrimination, inequalities and injustices that happen across the nation.”

In Tulsa, officers responded to call about a stalled vehicle Friday night. Video of the incident shows Terence Crutcher — who police say was not cooperating with their requests — walking away from officers with his hands up, and he is tasered and fatally shot when he gets to his vehicle and puts his hands on the driver’s side.

“His car was broken down, he was looking for help and he got murdered,” Kaepernick said. “That’s a perfect example of what this is about. I think it will be very telling what happens with the officers that killed him because everybody’s eyes will be on this.”

Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis weighed in on the situation as well, tweeting: It’s time 4 all people 2 value all life! This is disgusting as a country -to let anybody get away with this. It must stop. #TerenceCrutcher

Lewis, who was indicted on double murder charges after the fatal stabbing of two men in January 2000 but eventually pleaded guilty to lesser charges, added: All deserve life, dignity. -We’re not going to sit back and watch these tragedies go on! We need real changes! #TerenceCrutcher

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I’m a football coach. I’m not a doctor. The medical staff is the medical staff. I coach the team. The medical people handle the injuries. They don’t call plays. I don’t do surgery. We have a great deal there.” — Patriots coach Bill Belichick, responding to questions about the health of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo

STAT OF THE DAY: 8 — Home runs for David Ortiz against the Orioles this season, after his three-run shot in the Red Sox’ 5-2 victory Tuesday in Baltimore
