Felger & Mazz: August 26, 2013
Felger and Mazz opened up their show Monday afternoon by discussing the Red Sox after an impressive 4-2 road trip. With the Red Sox remaining in the driver’s seat in the AL East, has Mazz finally given in to admitting the Sox are a playoff team? Did John Farrell learn from his managing mistakes during the trip? And should Xander Bogaerts be playing third base everyday over Will Middlebrooks? The guys break it down.
In the second hour of Felger of Mazz, the guys dissect David Ortiz’s comments over the weekend on the Ryan Dempster drilling Alex Rodriguez with a pitch last weekend. They also reflect on the comments by Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez on their former team. The duo also look back at the blowout loss by the Patriots to the Lions. Is there reason to panic?
In the third hour of the program, Felger and Mazz take a closer look at the alarming quarterback situations in both New York and Buffalo. They listen back to Rex Ryan’s press conference over the weekend, and ask how much blame Ryan deserves for playing Mark Sanchez late in a preseason game last week. And has Ryan worn out his welcome in New York altogether? They also get back into the Patriots and Red Sox discussions.
In the fourth and final hour, they take a look back again at Ortiz’s comments about Dempster. Were they out of line? Will they cause any discord in the locker room? They also play the game, who is a bigger DB with Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett? Finally, they close things out with the Final Word with Marshall Hook.
