Phenom, all good points. It was really the only thing I could think of that was any kind of a rational reason.
Then again, maybe he's been told his days are numbered anyway (one can only hope) and is just half-assing it the rest of the way.
Or maybe he's just a terrible sports radio talk show host.
I'd have to think that with football season just around the corner, Gresh and Zo are safe for the rest of the year... let's face it, the NFL is the only sport those turds can discuss with some insight.
I checked in this morning to listen to the clueless duo's take on the Red Sox. I almost felt sorry for them since, with the Sox' latest surge, they were forced to talk baseball. They had no place to go. Gresh mentioned that the Sox record this year is almost identical to their record last year, at this time, but that the Sox traditionally go into decline this time of year, while the Yankees always pick up the pace in late June. (No mention, of course, of the fact that the Sox play most of their games on the road for the next 6 weeks, including 2 west coast trips.) Gresh obviously had the Sox stats page from the Globe or Herald in front of him and noted that, "Hey! John Lackey is 8-3! But his ERA is HOOoooRR-uhh-BLE." Gresh then added that "There's NOOO way his W-L record should be so good with that ERA." He also opined that DiceK was 5-2 with a HOOoooRR-uhh-BLE ERA, which was not good. This kind of "in-depth" analysis went on and on until I turned them off (and immediately felt better, much like the proverbial guy that banged his head against the wall, because it felt so good when he stopped.)
As an aside, I went to a family wedding over the weekend, and over-heard my 8 year old nephew, Jack, discussing the Red Sox with his 6 year old cousin, Ally. Jack informed Ally, that "A long time ago, when I was little, the Red Sox won the World Series with Manny, who now plays for the Dodgers." Ally couldn't recall that long ago, but she did offer the view that the Red Sox are doing just fine because they have more guys helping out and don't depend on just one guy.
Jack and Ally know more about baseball than Gresh and Zo. 98.5 should give them the 10-2 slot for the summer until the NFL season starts.
