  1. Eckersley has a habit of telling it the way it is. Some folks cannot handle that.

  2. I can handle hearing it like it is ,but repeatedly is annoying! He’s a whiner!

  3. Ellen Bruso says:

    Sorry David Price but I do think Eck understands how hard the game is.What I don’t understand is why does it seem like you are trying so hard to get out of Boston? Pressure too hard to handle?
