Felger and Massarotti opened the day talking about the Boston Red Sox, the return of Clay Buchholz, and Jacoby Ellsbury’s foot injury. Clay Buchholz returns to the mound tonight for the first time since June 8th to face the Tampa Bay Rays. What can we expect to see from Buchholz down the stretch? Ellsbury’s agent, Scott Boras, says that Ellsbury will be back before the end of the regular season and healthy for the playoffs. How important is Ellsbury for the playoff run? Last night, NESN aired a documentary about the Boston Bruins called “Behind The B.” Mike and Tony give their thoughts on the show and play some of the audio from it.
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz continue to discuss the value of Jacoby Ellsbury. How does Ellsbury’s value compare to Dustin Pedroia? Billy Lanni steps in for Jermaine Wiggins for this week’s edition of 10 Questions. Before Billy Lanni came back to answer some questions from the callers, Mike and Tony continued to talk about the absence of Jacoby Ellsbury as the Sox approach the start of the playoffs.
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys talked about the evolution of the quarterback position in the NFL. Will mobile quarterbacks replace the pocket quarterbacks? Is the spread offense here to stay or is just a gimmick? In last night’s Washington Redskins game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Robert Griffin III fumbled the ball and took full responsibility for it in the post game. How come Brady couldn’t take responsibility for his fumble in Sunday’s game?
In the fourth and final hour, Felger and Mazz begin to take a look at Thursday night’s New England Patriots game against the New York Jets. With the injuries the Patriots are dealing with, should this game scare people? Mike and Tony continued to discuss the “Behind The B” documentary. How good are documentaries, like this, for the sports of Hockey? Finally, it’s the Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
