[0:00:33] ... all the chance. -- that last week here WEEI talking about the Jon Lester contract negotiations. And to me the news of those negotiations -- more shocking thing I saw the Red Sox over the weekend mark Lou 937 WE the other those stories. The year ago and I can't be right that that that just can't be right and when -- that ball Ken Rosenthal fox sports. Reporter over the weekend that Jon Lester turned down a four year deal worth 7080 million dollars. Adding quite how that -- that -- four years and eighty two pieces starting point. It was rob Bradford report at WEEI dot com. That said it was actually four years in just over seventy million dollars but what seventeen million dollars a year. That Jon Lester turned out for the Boston Red Sox weren't. -- your gut reaction on my was that -- just cannot be right if they're serious about.

But -- the Bruins have dominated five on five play in the in the NHL this entire year. The red wings hung with them five on five better than anybody.

We tackle four topics relating to the struggle of repeating in sports.

[0:01:58] ... baseball's not necessarily the tablet game where. The best team wins the World Series I think does the most brutal struggle. Is a 162 games it takes to get there and as the hottest team that wins. -- I mean nobody is pull the wool over anyone's eyes in this city. When last year at this time right now even though they were off to a better start than they are now. There were very few people outside of that Red Sox clubhouse. That thought this was a World Series teams so. You know what they did last year was extremely special and I guess basically the same -- a -- coming off of a World Series. Season where I think the biggest obstacle is the offseason for you it's shorter. It's filled with parties are still on the rubber chicken circuit is harder to get back into the routine. Jonny Gomes told me the weirdest thing he ever experienced -- after winning a World Series is that every other year and his wife his last game was a loss. They finally get to let it go. Clean ...
[0:03:30] ... tax. Of of trying to come back in and repeat as a World Series champion mean cycle has broken down like some of the things that are difficult to do. When you're a player does that ...
[0:05:19] ... won their division for people have to here's an -- on -- World Series title. They should've rattled off three or four of them themselves with all the great teams they had their. And you could look at it one way to say well they were really really good -- it made the playoffs every year but. You know I think most base -- players at table. And it choke it off because you never won the big one except just wants. You know -- I thought about this I don't know why -- restaurant thing about the Atlanta Braves. But if you go back and you look at all of their World Series losses. There are really many of them where you say -- Lines were clearly the better team they should've won it and it's amazing. That you can. The kid wins so many games when so many division titles and they get to the post season and look at and say well yeah you lost and which lost a lot of times and I get to the World Series. They lost they lost the Yankees the last and they -- the World Series loss to the Yankees correct that the left and they went six. No and it is yet 992000 -- right around there so. The loss of the Yankees a couple of times. In the Yankees -- they were better in the Yankees in Europe to exit from the first one or better. I admit there -- one of those teams that won a bunch of games. And and had a lot of division titles. But they weren't quite. World Series title material. Factory. A lot of every. Every professional sport has its challenges why it's difficult to repeat based 462 games for ...
[0:10:43] ... and I hope to make a sequel this one. All is lost. Robert Redford hanging out there on a boat all by himself said about three words he's -- -- Yankee guy. Like. It was a ...
