Once again, David Price threw a stinker against the Yankees, and this time it prevented the Sox from clinching the AL East and snapped the 11 game winning streak. Glenn, Lou and Christian talk about last night's game and what kind of problem the Sox may have in Price can't come up big in important games.

The guys discussed some leftover thoughts from the debate and talked about a recent blog post regarding the contestants on Dino's Casting Couch.
“I think this gig is a little overrated” –Gary Tanguay, 6:09 am
(Just to be completely clear: Gary Tanguay is not now, nor has he ever been, a pedophile. And to say otherwise is not funny.)
Before quitting in an absolute outrage (we’ll get to that), former Casting Couch front-runner, Gary “Bumbelina” Tanguay, showed up ready to talk about the debate, which he couldn’t stay awake for so he “taped it” and watched it Tuesday night instead of the Red Sox game.
His analysis? “It was the same as all the others.”
Gary also still doesn’t listen to the show unless he’s on it and even then it’s questionable. To be fair, he’s been busy watching “Broadchurch” and driving to different bus stops. He can’t be expected to sit around for four hours and listen to the whole show like some people who write blogs about it…
Gary’s sources tell him Brady is well-endowed and describe his penis as a “baby arm,” “hose reel” and “driftwood.” Who else is going to give you that information?
And he figured out the secret to why Gerry and Kirk are great talk show hosts: everything bothers them.
One of the things that bothers Gary is being called a pedophile (which is not funny). After Kirk and Gerry called him that AS A JOKE he SMASHED HIS HEADPHONES, stormed out of the studio and QUIT. This is a man who once punted a ukulele into a ceiling so you can be sure this is not an act.
Is this the last we’ll see of Gary Tanguay? Only time will tell. Randi Tanguay has nothing to worry about now because he’s way too sensitive for me to go out with him.
Line of the day: Not a line, but when a caller compared Gary to Joe Paterno, Kirk was laughing so hard you could hear him crying.
Caller of the day: John in Eastie,who pissed Gary off saying Gary doesn’t love his kids because he doesn’t coach their teams. This is when Gary started going berserkand ended up walking out of the studio.
Producer contribution of the day: Ken played Sandusky sound during the Tanguay/pedophile fiasco and sent Gary over the edge.

Gary stormed out of the studio for the second time in three months after he was labeled a bad father and a pedophile. His future at the station remains highly in doubt.

The New York Post spoke with Eric Mangini — which is to say, the spiritually broken, Eric Mangini-shaped, hollowed-out shell of a man that walks the Earth in disgrace after stabbing Bill Belichick in the back — and the result is a lengthy piece about his life of shame and regret in the nine years since he set off Spygate:
Bill Belichick read at Eric and Julie Mangini’s wedding. Mangini’s son Luke’s middle name is William, named after Belichick.
Mangini followed Belichick from Cleveland, where he was a ball boy, to the Jets to the Patriots. The two have not had a real conversation in 10 years.
Leaving the Patriots for the Jets head-coaching job against Belichick’s wishes damaged the relationship. Spygate ended it.
“Spygate is a big regret,” Mangini said. “It wasn’t supposed to go down the way it went down. … It wasn’t worth it to me personally. It wasn’t worth it to the relationship.”
The relationship died. Belichick’s legacy was tainted. Mangini was seen as a traitor.
“I cared about him,” Mangini said. “I didn’t want to hurt him. I didn’t want to hurt the Patriots. They were a huge part of my life, too, and the Kraft family. The Krafts were always great to me. It wasn’t like I was thinking I really want to get these guys.”
This is one of those instructive, moral tales that teach us there truly is nothing new under the sun. That every aspect of the human condition has been covered in some way by the great artists of the past because people have not changed at all down through the ages.
Eric Mangini’s story was perfectly captured in Dante’s 14th century poem “Inferno,” in which the protagonists travel into Hell, which is comprised of nine concentric circles. The worse your sins, the deeper into the circles you are sent. They range from misdemeanor crimes in the outermost circles like “Limbo” for virtuous pagans who did not accept Christ and “Lust” for the unrepentant horny, to the felonies in the inner circles, such as “Violence” in the seventh circle and “Fraud” in the eighth.
And the ninth? The very innermost circle? That is reserved for “Treachery.” It is a lake of ice called Cocytus frozen into which are all the betrayers. The mutineers. Those who turned on the ones who trusted them. The greatest gift God gives is love. And there is no greater sin than to commit treason upon that love.
Bill Belichick loved Eric Mangini. He gave him his career, did a reading at his wedding and gave his name to his son. And in return, he was betrayed. And now Mangina is frozen in his mentor’s own personal Coctyus, under the ice for all eternity to contemplate the egregiousness of his sins.
The damage to Belichick’s reputation caused by Mangini will never be repaired, no matter how many more Super Bowls he wins. But, as the classics taught us a long time ago, the damage to the one doing the back stabbing is far, far worse.

AROUND THE WEB:
— More details are emerging about Jose Fernandez’s fatal boat trip in Miami over the weekend, and apparently some of his teammates warned the pitcher not to go.
Center fielder Marcell Ozuna said he and a couple of teammates were invited to join Fernandez but declined the offer, and they tried to discourage the 24-year-old from going on the midnight ride.
“It was a bad decision for him,” Ozuna told reporters. “He heard everybody say, ‘No, go back to your house and take it easy.’ Then you wake up and see the news.”
Also killed in the accident were 27-year-old Emilio Jesus Macias and 25-year-old Eduardo Rivero. A friend of Rivero’s posted on social media texts he exchanged just before the boat left the dock.
Will Bernal texted his friend to be careful and “keep Jose cool.” Rivero texted: Trust me, it’s not my time yet.
The Marlins announced that a funeral procession will start at 2:16 p.m. Wednesday at their ballpark, followed by a public viewing at a Miami church.
— Meanwhile, in St. Louis on Tuesday night, Cardinals Aledmys Diaz, Fernandez’s childhood friend, returned from spending time with Fernandez’s family and hit his first career grand slam.
Diaz had attended a private ceremony for Fernandez on Monday in Florida, where he made a promise to Fernandez’s family.
“I told them that every single time I put on the uniform, I would be thinking of him,” Diaz said. “And that I would give 100 percent because that’s how he played the game.”
ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): In 2005, the Red Sox became the first team in 55 years to have four players score 100 runs.
