Yeah I'm stuck with you is this this is bad judgment or non story. I think it's both of those things Lewis I don't mean to cop out but clearly I'm surprised the Red Sox signed off on the way they didn't -- in my view. And why I just say you know Stan said his sound bite you just heard that makes it a little bit harder to swallow because it sounds like you can't stand up and -- and all that stuff. And I down there no matter how harmless and his team signed up on it you know drinking. It's just doesn't look good it looks like a lapse in judgment and all the stuff this pitching staff has gone through this year Beckett golf etc. They didn't need this Garrett. I got a -- and I I think there's these restoring. I think it's a horrible move I think it tells us that the Red Sox haven't changed one iota. I have a number of problems in his first of all the fact that he's trying to hide behind a chair. Okay if you wanna do something charitable write a check in stay home secondly the traders should be fired. Are you kidding me the trainer out -- this the trainer. As opposed to a doctor you go to the trainer. Ask him after being an intensive care for four days if you can go to a party. And what are talking about it sprained ankle here we're talking about internal bleeding. We're talking about not having the ability to get up and walked from the couch to your doctor's office the third thing that nobody is talking about it to me this is the story. I don't care that he's pitched well for three games I don't care that the Red Sox went seven out of nine I understand that you need to look at the bigger picture. With this guy was pictured a double play -- Trenton. And he went against Roger Clemens who was coming back for the Red Sox I remember rob Bradford went down there. And all of us at the story was and Roger Clements or was Clay Buchholz everybody's and look at this -- the Red Sox -- at this point time Clay Buchholz is supposed to be an all star. He's supposed to be the ace of this staff and he's not. That's the problem and he's not because of the fact that he does synthetic. He's never going to be a -- should be it's never gonna take full advantage of the talent that he has -- that alarmed because he doesn't have the head that's the store. Now hold on I wanna I wanna ask you VE got out of -- hospital said he felt good the last two or three days you make it sound like. This guy I was on the on his -- not the first few days you know what the hell was going on. But he's well enough to leave them the hospital with possible let this guy leave and it in the situation you're kind of describing here how does that explain that they haven't missed pitching staff hasn't changed them. He just -- all of the jump and it got to go to this event was what he's done -- drinking all night long. Well well the problem is when you come out of the hospital and you're on the fifteen day disabled list carry out your stomach and your esophagus was the leading. That's not good that's not like a twisted ankle at that point in time if you're totally committed to your crap you know what you do and with the trainers should have told them as. You stayed home I want to go to bed early so once we get to rest I want to start eating right and you need to change your lifestyle. So you can pitch. I mean obviously he's got a lifestyle issue here. I mean all of a sudden you don't get a stoppage right is because what you ate up rebuilt. I mean there's an issue here. I mean there's a problem with the lifestyle whether it's swallowing tobacco whether it's taking too much aspirin and Ibuprofen and not eating enough. Obviously his diet is a mess that's problem number one and you know as well as I do if you're gonna be one of the best of this guy has the ability to be one of the best. You have to have a one nutrition but you have to have a 81 workout program and I think the guy has neither but -- don't a lot of people that another stick and you'll do you look at me. Mean even Clemens even with Clemens before he allegedly got on the Jews. You played with a you know that I was so that that was a workhorse he was in the gym every day he -- right he treated his body properly the reason all these guys are the best of what they do is because they treat their body like -- temple several want never to date yet. Rex well that's all three got some of the best. That's all the luck to get -- -- is really -- a lot of them chew tobacco and they'll get a suffered China's I don't know how this thing happened but no questioning lifestyles now we did and isn't and these are talking about that it is an intensive care. I need you to have never been -- -- -- -- eternal argument. It's not like he's in the wheelchair right now yeah we got -- the -- -- -- happily -- a yeah I'll get a three guys for God's sakes they let him. Derrick doing hose you down I don't choose the got a hose you down then that really I mean he said he's never going to be a great pitcher he was a seventeen game winner a couple of years ago. He's still very young can't close the book on this guy at this was probably a dumb thing. The potential still -- -- going get tough on him which quickly. Okay okay fight but if we're not gonna give up on him he better not give up on himself when is the guy put together a complete season was a seventeen game winner but he started in June right that year. -- it is you put together wire to wire a complete season. Knowing exactly ideas on how much do. Now if not I mean let's project had a stress fracture in his back is -- saw the Giants I'm not ready to sit there is they had this pitching staff this is what it is and and his diet has one of the reasons why that he can't be healthy last year and with a stress fracture. It's sometimes stuff happens I'll bet. I don't know I mean -- let's look. There are certainly don't have any idea what have we all say about this -- Smith and also they -- Owens ran right Gary -- -- -- this situation. Like it it is not you know all we want and we talked about us. This series he's he's not I'm not at -- -- -- he was in intensive care are you kidding me. He was he couldn't walk to his doctor's office that's not a story. -- on the blue in the and a trainer -- on the joke that I can't believe all the guys I know on his death -- I can't believe the hospital actually let this guy lead on the in the light of balloting. You could drive right now a pass out at training pop I think possibly lied about his condition. -- yeah all the blow it. -- presented -- I find Daniel and Shannon of that that's great. -- I got it to charity event okay that's fine write a check. All right you read guys care charity event because of that well paying this guy he's never going to be the -- he should be. Mark my word -- don't like you guys know as well as bad as I do. What was it three or four years ago he was up losing too much today season Beckett settled down and back -- that you got to cut this stuff out everybody right now.
