Felger & Mazz: May 31, 2013
Felger and Massarotti kicked off and Agenda Free Friday previewing the start of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins. How are things going to go down in this series? What are the key elements to look for when this series starts? In last nights Boston Red Sox 9-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, Jacoby Ellsbury set a Sox record for 5 stolen bases in one game. Is the stolen base an overrated stat? Marc “The Beetle” Bertrand let the guys know how things went down last night during the Boston Strong Benefit Concert. What were some of the best performances of the night?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz continued to discuss Jacoby Ellsbury’s 5 stolen bases in the Red Sox 9-2 win over the Phillies last night. Does Ellsbury need to start playing with a bit of an edge? It was reported during the show that Ellsbury has been scratched from tonight’s lineup with groin stiffness. The Miami Heat took a 3-2 series lead over the Indiana Pacers with a 90-79 win last night. People respect LeBron’s ability, but why do people hate him as a person? This morning on Toucher and Rich, Bruins radio play-by-play announcer Dave Goucher did play-by-play of the Felger and Massarotti television broadcast. Finally, Felger continues to debate whether he could hit off of a Women’s College Softball pitcher. Could he?
Chris Gasper of the Boston Globe joined Felger and Massarotti and the guys are discussing Doc Rivers’ future with the Boston Celtics. If Doc’s under contract and the organization won’t allow him to talk to other teams, what’s Doc’s angle here? Why hasn’t Doc confirmed his return to Boston yet? Gasper and the guys got back to previewing the start of the Bruins-Penguins series. What is Gasper looking for in this series?
In the fourth and final hour, Felger and Mazz continue to look forward to tomorrow night’s start of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Bruins and Penguins. What are the guys expecting to see this round? How will Jarome Iginla’s choice to play with the Penguins over the Bruins affect the series? Finally, Squeaky Mazz and Mad Mike faceoff in an argument about John Tortorella and the benching of Brad Richards, in Friday’s edition of The Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
