This shows has become unlistenable with Murray’s terrible voices and fart jokes. Hopefully they fire him so I can listen to this show again.
I was listening to Beatle and Zo and they were talking about how much they hated Beth Mowins on Monday Night Football. They both started howling and for about 2 minutes talked about how much they were looking forward to Murray doing an impression of her. That's what the show has become.This shows has become unlistenable with Murray’s terrible voices and fart jokes. Hopefully they fire him so I can listen to this show again.
I've cut way back listening to these "hot take" clowns, but like you caught their adjusted win total for fake wins. I guess the manufactured bullshit sells, but Felger who's reasonably aware, is very tuned in to being an annoying asshole get him market share, so there's little reason to believe he will stop the numbing hot take/contrarian model. I have limited tolerance for the contrived bullshit, I'd rather listen to the gasbag Francesa. While he's got some biases (and he plays off them) they're mostly natural and his takes are generally legit and the guy knows his shit. For example he admitted Friday he was starting to weaken to the arguments on Brady as the all-time GOAT. Its about as close to him admitting he might be wrong, but at least he's mostly genuine.I turned it on for about 3 minutes yesterday and they were claiming the Sox actually only have 99 wins because the last two games they won the other team just sucked worse than they did so they are “Fake wins” and don’t count. Also any Red Sox fan who thinks 100 wins is cool or noteworthy is pathetic. That was enough for me.
I know it is just schtick, but I don’t get why anyone listens. They are miserable and hate everything about Boston sports, and it is like they see it as a personal weakness if fans actually enjoy watching their teams play well without needing every season to end in a championship.
I have not listened to that show in a couple weeks now and it's refreshing.It really is pathetic how predictable they are and how they will grasp at anything they can to refuse to give the Patriots any credit. Winning by 31 points against a first place undefeated team, a win the team really needed after losing the last two, and EVERYONE knew how the show was going to start. The game was meaningless. Miami SUCKS. Sony Michel, despite his day, sucks and the Pats were idiots to draft him in the first round. Miami, like Houston simply gave the ball to the Pats and there was nothing whatsoever you can take from this game as meaningful (despite saying the opposite before the game). Its beyond how over the top negative they are now. It is that it is so easy to know exactly what they are going to say before the show starts, and the fact that they then go ahead and say exactly that. Why even bother listening at this point?
I'll raise you the Red Sox "fake wins" stat that he was using. I heard him reference it on the weekend, but mentioned that they talked about it during the week.There is no worse radio than Murray's "Tom Brady hates Gisele and runs to the stadium early to get away from his nagging wife" take....that he runs with for like 4 minutes at a time
It’s really not a 12 man staff at that point. They already had burned 5 pitchers, CC is starting tonight, Tanaka pitched two nights before and will be needed on Thursday if the series goes that far. So what are they to do? Bring in one of their best relievers? Imagine the backlash if they brought in Robertson, Chapman, Betances or hell, even Happ, and that guy took a ball off the wrist and was lost for tonight and possibly after.Mr. Allented: Because I think it's a joke that one person on a 12 man staff can't pitch a fucking inning in a 5 games series with TWO days off inserted. Not exclusive to the Yanks by any means. Everyone in their bullpen is perfect, has nothing to work on, experiment with. You can rest assured there is always someone that wants to hit in that situation.
Didn't they shit on the Red Sox celebrating Mookie's cycle because it came on a loss? I guess a player can only enjoy hitting for the cycle if the last hit is a walkoff in a WS game 7. What a bunch of sour fucking losers.I almost never listen to WEEI, living in CT where I am mercifully spared from its signal, but I'm up in Boston on some business so I thought I'd tune in and enjoy a little gloating or something after a record victory, but what do I hear? They're shitting all over Holt for enjoying himself last night. Jesus, if you can't enjoy a random scrub like Brock Holt doing something that's never been done before in the context of a historic demolition of your hated rival, why can you enjoy?
Switched over to XM Radio after about 4 minutes.
Garbage radio. I tuned in for less than 60 seconds today. Assholes.
I mean, baseball is only 130 years old, what's the big deal in doing something that had never been accomplished before in the hsitory of the game?Heard Mazz say that if he were the Yankees, he would drill Brock Holt in the kneecap next season for celebrating the cycle too much.
