Felger & Mazz: March 11, 2013
Felger and Massarotti kicked off the week discussing the New England Patriots, Wes Welker’s future with the team, and NFL free agency. NFL free agents can begin to sign contracts tomorrow at 4pm. Does Welker’s time in New England come to an end tomorrow? Do the Baltimore Ravens have to bring back wide receiver Aquan Boldin? How many teams could have interest in Wes Welker?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz talked about the Boston Red Sox, David Ortiz’ sore heels, and new manager John Farrell. Ortiz has been shut down for 5-7 days with sore left heel. Are the Red Sox using a heel injury to cover up for a sore Achilles? How much will Ortiz actually play this season? How much of a Larry Lucchino guy is John Farrell? Is Farrell going to help or hurt the Red Sox public relations problem? The guys also talked some Boston Celtics and Mazz’ boy Jeff Green. Yesterday, the Celtics lost 91-79 to the Thunder in Oklahoma City. Will Green ever step up and be the offensive leader of the Celtics?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys continued discussing NFL Free Agency. Will Welker sign elsewhere tomorrow? Aquan Boldin has been traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a 6th round pick. How much more of a favorite does this move make the 49ers next year? If Boldin is worth a 6th rounder, what is Welker’s value? In Red Sox news, will Jackie Bradley be on the big league roster for Opening Day?
In the 4th and final hour, Felger and Mazz got back in NFL Free Agency. What will happen at 4pm tomorrow? Was New England’s trade for Randy Moss a bigger steal than what the 49ers gave up for Boldin? Also, it’s the Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
