Felger & Mazz: August 27, 2013
Felger and Mazz opened the show Tuesday, live from the Ace Ticket Studio on Brookline Ave. by welcoming in Jermaine Wiggins for his weekly segment with the duo. In the first hour, the guys looked back at the Lions-Patriots matchup on Thursday night. Did Wiggy find any positives to take out of a dreadful performance? Has the lackluster play of Adrian Wilson make him a candidate to be cut later this week? The guys also discuss a Jon Heyman report, suggesting the possibility that the Red Sox would want to re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury after this season.
In the second hour of Felger and Mazz, Jermaine Wiggins joins the guys for another hour to discuss the status of Tim Tebow with the Patriots. With another round of cuts coming at the end of this week, will the Patriots keep the struggling Tebow as a third quarterback, or send him packing? The guys also do their usual 10 question with Wiggy, and close out the hour taking questions from the Audio Road Show App.
In the third hour of Felger and Mazz, the guys dive into some baseball talk around the league. Specifically, after another serious arm injury yesterday to the Mets’ young ace, Matt Harvey, Felger wonders why young pitchers are continuing to suffer debilitating arm injuries at a high rate in this day and age of pitch counts and advanced technology. They also dissect the Red Sox lineup, wondering what it will take to get Xander Bogaerts into the lineup?
In the fourth and final hour, the guys turn their attention back to the Red Sox. Clay Buchholz struggled mightily in his first rehab start from his neck injury over the weekend. Is it possible the team could use Buchholz out of the bullpen in the stretch drive? And would that be a good idea? They also get into the Stephen Drew/Bogaerts discussion a little more and wrap things up with The Final Word with Adam Kaufman.
