Steve Buckley joins Sports Tonight to play a game of 'Over/Under'
But let's roll with Susan over under your Steve Buckley joins us in Boston Herald pop. When the Red Sox have new owners over on opening day. 26 feet I would think you'll run out. Together. Just. I set the -- but so few weeks ago that all signs point. -- -- Teams based on the way to a cutting it short I just on the it's gonna happen overnight this is not going to be Tom yawkey. He's not gonna be forty years but I could see 23 years -- -- out what's for years 2006 things that'll run its. Five years immunizing -- it's been good teammates have a little trouble the math but we're good to hospital Red Sox but that's okay he's not -- an automatic but this is it or would you like to see -- eventually whether -- here's a spot it's it's a great question of legacy and maverick participatory owner. Not -- -- faced a lot but participatory in the payroll and really excellent in this team down people's throats because that's what you have to do you have to do that to make money. To make money you know -- him. Mark Cuban who. What I thought I -- Standing Mark -- -- -- -- -- with that let me say this. I I'm big on local ownership I think it matters I think it really matters now I don't know what does it does the guy takes his solidarity Jerry hit it on Monday saying that that the carpetbaggers who we -- now won two world through to understand that and now but they've but they screwed the pooch. But they put they don't but they don't given anymore they don't understand area now they wanna get a lot of it's heavier at two years I don't know -- -- -- because there because that one mission was to win baseball games and they've lost they lost. They lost they're targeted to drive but -- always. To a critical list this team that I have with this stupid bricks in the monster seats right things that I -- But everybody guys if you if you -- it's it's like a stock it's dip that will come back. Did they've they've been too good for too long that suddenly lose their minds -- what they've done a Fenway Park. Look at the brand look at the payroll but at the World Series championships they've done a great job. In total the last couple years they've been -- -- rightly bat of losing doubt about that. Well here's the thing I know -- I don't know how they're gonna fix it. That's why I like I know you -- nets feel that they can turn around and get to they can get to the players really wants war. I don't know because it seemed initially. They had one mission beat the Yankees and win baseball games now they got race cars and left in terms of pit -- and got soccer they don't like but I. Well I think why can't they walk and chew bubble gum at the same thing you don't want to think about what -- John Kerry takes a few things Larry charge in Larry's trying to be a baseball man and a businessman and it's. How were you join our digital limo the government and national forest products. -- the -- and but at -- soccer team -- -- -- Olney he's spot as the revolution but above above the thing. Not the main thing is I think that it is in his hands wrists and play in the same building and play in the same stadium in the package that's always going to Asia to cut Palin has an excellent in this thing W your hands are everywhere in the business community what it's always a great owner but the point is he's got Larry on the show once or baseball so. The difference is the Celtics like Didier make basketball decisions and the Patriots like Bill Belichick -- -- all decisions on my short with potential future on his in the it's not that. Actually it was -- one of them all Pennsylvania one. I would hope I don't know him outside of yeah I would yeah they're human version just now I don't and I. Overall -- remember the how many games -- the Red Sox win this month the over under -- we said. At five and a half and don't forget -- this year average and I think India. On this one because they are going to do something that nobody thought possible that and at worst record September 2012. Then they had September 2011. The only difference being that the stakes are different last -- bad September it costs in the post season. This year is bad that September is gonna cost -- additionally in this case it's. Yeah I don't care about this topic for -- elected him to ask me but yeah. Yeah rehash I'm more concerned about -- -- terrible deficit went way it went well appointed twelve Bill Walton who did see what -- 2012. Thirteen and it feels good to finally start. I would want to believe I want to believe it's New Year's Day. But you know the big outdoor hockey game you know and that's what the plot from what -- told Hannibal the possibly that I they can just -- the money to next year. So it's not like they're gonna lose money long term and that worries me because the TV he'll force the NBA back I don't know this TV deal and -- the NHL. (%expletive) this is not the smartest group of proof rough is 444. Ten years ago I think they're -- -- -- down the fear that I have this one and taking under the fear I have is it to the NHL wild to them to make it come back. From losing an entire season I can't imagine there corporate structure their their their big sponsors. Wanting to go through this yet again because hockey is a wonderful sport even even even what it down as some people say it is and they. Harken back the days that but just that the original six but -- twelve teams. And is there enough talent to filled entirely it's still wonderful sport. They're gonna screw this up -- -- was another season I think they're gonna be irreparable damage and that's why I think it will be early than later.
