David Ortiz once in awhile Lenny DiNardo was an area now and to some that's and I yeah libraries and he's here. He's a little Florida and moved over the years ago so did. You follow anything with the Sox this season a little bit yet as I used to work Chris Sale in Naples for about three years go to Naples and return in the offseason and he's on he's treated as a believable it's fantastic man and and he doesn't care about and things that. Plants and some some Xbox and and pitch and then it turns out he's such a simple. Did you guys did you pay any attention to the whole. Incidentally is back on the on the bus in the plane and I didn't get all the details finally got into a price a little bit you know you know David Price at all I don't you don't I don't know because in order regard you know from outside I know a pretty good but. You know it's funny man when when generation's gotta go by like that especially when you're somebody you know. For some we. Or reason as soon as you retire from the game and you get stuck on the media side. After a couple of years go by you almost lose your credibility of what you've done in the game yeah strange for a guy like act right because he was he's a hall of Famer and he's unbelievable and but. As don't the longer you're in that suit in your talking on TV you almost become. A non player anymore and guys don't really wanna hear he had to say and sometimes they cause a rift did you have any issue playing in Boston wins you know because it's all we ever hear especially from somebody like David prices. You know. Fans are way too into it in the media as we I mean did you have issues and no wind you know throw all those complaints are here I heard from David Wells and he played in. In Yankee Stadium forever and he's like managed differently awesome and restaurant people's read on here and I'm like. This is what I've lived four man you know like he liked it yeah I came from Pittsburgh we lost a hundred games every year and nine yet at element Goodyear. And I was happy to be in a place where I would sit up. In the weight room in Fenway Park and you watched people walk into the stadium and I felt like they were just for it and they're like there but it's either The Beatles reunite man I. They were desperate there ear off or win every night and I loved playing in that environment has it in major ringer if I'd love to go to the park and Jessica. Part of a Boston when someone tells you F you you suck America. You you respect you because you know they come to the ballpark. You know. Have to seize those who have their rabid fans are actually spent 121000. Dollars to watch you know I watched beat. And yet the very first element Fenway Park I come from Talking Heads on that perfect game and the only thing anybody knew about me was August and Adams perfect game that vaguely heard that a Mormon in the tent behind Pedro and I got to save up through three and got only save my career against the Mariners. I'm warming up in that you know the fans are so close on top right there and I just here Rollyo. It'll say this is arguing that that was the other. And Bronson Arroyo is with us and he adds he retired last this is last season in Cincinnati and if you think about Fenway is that you mean does that compare to anywhere else on a dozen people have asked me since I left there. You know it's really that much different Boston and that the two stores I always tell because it's hard to quantify what it's like here you know because everybody says all happily in Chicago shortly here there. I think listen after we won the World Series people walking every single day just cry and and they would never say congratulations you won the World Series they say document thank you for my grandfather my followed it didn't get to see it or. Whatever and the other thing was people launch of this. As amateurs reading you know the newspaper articles to tombstones McNamee just doesn't happen happen any other place Chicago's fantastic but it it feels more like a party aired here. It feels like it's almost literally ingrained into the people if you lose it's like ruining their week. And you know I love that about it. I'm you're doing charity event the some yeah Plano or did were actually playing with a with the Boston Pops which is just ridiculous and a bunch of my friend Jane Aronson American life by local guy and you know lightly it's a homeless union missiles book I've been helping maturity in Arizona the last couple years it's it's us against special needs kids in implement. In two schools the idea of teaching in the musical instrument from another student is just fantastic I was in the U and then they play with orchestra sometimes a play. The halftime of Ohio State football games and so I've put all the cement to basically raise money for that were playing with a symphony on Monday night the 27 of November and you get tickets at www. united sound dot org slash Boston.

Oh world renowned player or open up the show its honestly now did you select Monday night Monday the 27 after Thanksgiving Monday it will what are you doing for Thanksgiving east team understanding area who you wanna paint his house generally well I don't pay Florida Ibaka I saw Lester miles appear but.

I'm Dave knows what wrong we GMAC now. My only matter if you have yeah yeah how tall you. About 64 I embryo and a broken of the game was some other parts of which 152 at the site. Now I weigh about 182 problem and I pitched about 19195. Yeah well if LB is. Actually does it you don't music what are you gonna do are you gonna do anything for work rather than playing music or use the would you would you ever go on the Booth. Yet I don't know they've you know David Ross called me. And before the season was even over anybody after your name and had a ESPN that you wanted the playoffs and stuff but to be honestly it's like you know I've lived kind of a different life in the average ball player most guys. You know you like 161718. Years old when you figure out maybe you've got this talent that might go somewhere and and you start getting serious about eagle in the weight room but. A group with a followed and the keys it was early in the power of animals friends of realtors level as they put me in the wee Herman is like a six year old kid and so I've got these dvds and I mean eight years old man squad like 250 pounds is a 55 year old and 25 pound kid yeah and and at least into 35 and so I lived kind of like professional athlete from that time on where you were carbo loading your resting and you were taking supplements. And so I've been doing this flight 35 years and yes from me I just want a little bit of a break away from the game. Just to see what it feels like just being normal life and earnings conference now would you advise that her parents who really want their kid to be a professional athlete get him into the gym at six or seven years old yeah maker of star power lifting at an earlier well maybe not maybe not that that that that level but definitely to get the body movement a little bit no doubt about it it was a good relationship yeah that it wasn't like. Who is that that quarterback Tom brunt of it ya got there could be two to three absolutely well I mean I know people ask me all the time how did your life and differently and and usually these stereotypical Little League coaches who burn their kids out and they wanted me drug addicts and the difference was I think that the thing that I we see in the stores like odds is that. They can never do enough to make the father happy right it was like you with three Ford Edge right now in the fourth at the right my father was exact opposite it was you went over for today so what they gonna give us tomorrow and both organic system are right and just that little. One change of optimism. Made all the difference in the world you'd announcements of revenue to the major leagues him and I remember being a Saint Louis and then on the through my parents and what my father was like the culmination of everything you'd been doing down and in in Key West, Florida. Since 05 year old kid and just envisioning. Mean at this finish line you know I think that was kind of the difference for me is that I was I was literally looking at the finish line at a much younger age than most people. Weren't so that's why I say you know mob burned out of the game market that you know ten years by. I'm I don't know if wanna go in the Booth will be on some audience watched yeah all right well art and he's right guitar here guitarist and near and your voice Ian units and some for a rental Littleton for winning and though program triangle old school here what is and well we're doing a little bit of Springsteen and blended and Tom patties on. And owner. The affluent house over there were video diary at the now you know. Just button and help you know Springsteen we we don't please and that's revenue springs and I really you know lyrically. It's funny Napoli I probably hundreds of these songs in my head. And a lot of times Utley got the berries you or something like yeah you know the leveraged everything I have a lot of flaws in my head but I really have to. To dig into the music to iTunes once it sticks and I'm good yeah I have done in the Springsteen it want now old ones that passed and I'm I don't know I just think there's you know there's obviously since Anheuser resonate with a terrible you know I'm embarrassed to say that publicly because of the greatest artists to listen I listen I I hear my hero musically is is is is any better Pearl Jam and and I know on almost every other one of the records. But and he he looks up to Bruce and he I think patterns over two groups in a lot of way that's yeah absolutely I have accomplished went to Mexico City with Youkilis yeah in nova and fifteen in 2015 and organize that idea how long you'd be doing this you know I want to wrap around my brain when it was that I market bureaucracy of programs show and he's day. Bruce is devoted to close the seventies and the reason I can't so that we. Out of the back story hill gardeners is so high school buddies and when they all live in sacks and build together they used to do shirtless. Bruce share. We don't have to mention that your. Yeah it's on the eighth but on the Jumbotron Kevin Harvick yeah you got that I've.
