Felger & Mazz: October 24, 2013
Felger and Massarotti are broadcasting from the Ace Ticket Studio at Kenmore and discussing last night’s Boston Red Sox 8-1 Game 1 World Series win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Can the Cardinals recover after last night’s choke job? The guys discussed the performance of Sox pitcher Jon Lester last night. Lester went 7.2 inning, allowing no runs, and striking out eight. How important is it to have, backup catcher, David Ross working with Lester? A Cardinals minor-league pitcher accused Jon Lester applying a substance to the ball. Was Lester doctoring the ball last night?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz discuss the overturned call at second base last night in the Sox win over the Cardinals. What does last night’s overturned call mean to the future of instant replay in baseball? Even though Jonny Gomes is struggling at the plate, should he still be in the starting lineup? Will Daniel Nava get playing time when the Series moves to St. Louis?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys discussed Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott’s hit on Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson. As a result of the hit, Scott has been suspended indefinitely and Erikkson is out indefinitely. Mike and Tony were joined by Bruins President Cam Neely to discuss Scott’s hit on Eriksson. To wrap up the hour, Felger and Mazz got back into the sloppy play of the Cardinals played last night. Are the Cardinals just a good National League team?
In the fourth and final hour, Felger and Mazz continue to pick though last night’s Sox Game 1 World Series win over the Cardinals. Tonight John Lackey will be going against the Cardinals Michael Wacha in Game 2 at Fenway. What affect will last night’s overturned call have on instant replay in baseball going forward? Finally, it’s the Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
