I appreciate Fred mentioning that Adam Jones is going to be co-hosting next week. Gives me the weekend to cue up 5 days worth of podcasts to listen to in the morning.
Yeah he's usually pretty good about giving the audience advanced warning when there's gonna be a fill-in, just surprised it isn't Joe Murray. Not that that'd be much better... definitely gonna be listening to something else next week

DeBrusk's story this morning was pretty great about accidentally ordering UberEats to the wrong city. He's so chill for a professional athlete, I'm glad they've been able to bring him back for a couple of years now.

Despite posting about it here, I tuned in today, forgetting Jones was on. First few minutes just now was Rich talking Bruins with a beat writer. Good stuff. Then Jones jumps in “But the division kinda stinks...”. Click, off. What a complete tool that guy is.

I heard that too and I couldn't believe he said that. Washington and Philly are top teams that have played well despite not having their #1 centers for most of the season. Pittsburgh is still really talented. The Islanders and Rangers are talented teams not playing great and Buffalo/NJ are the bottom feeders yet tough to play against. Jones' argument of Tampa, Toronto, and Montreal not being there so it stinks is way off-base. Montreal finished 5th, 4th, and 6th in the division the last 3 years. Swapping out Ottawa, Detroit, and Montreal for NY Rangers, NY Islanders, and NJ Devils at the bottom of the division makes this division much tougher than the Atlantic was last year. Swapping out Tampa, Toronto, and Florida at the top of the division with Washington, Philly, and Pittsburgh also makes the division tougher as well.

I totally believe he said it, because Jones is a tool who has nothing to offer besides being the negative, hot takez guy. He's a predictable, exhausting bore. In this case, it took him 3 minutes to destroy what I was finding to be an interesting segment.

It's a shame that they keep using him as the T&R replacement host. He sucks so damn much.

To your initial point though, I enjoy when they have Ty on to talk Bruins. He’s a good listen.

If the Patriots are good or they somehow find their future QB, it will absolutely crust Freddy T and is ongoing Patriots narrative.
Yeah, he has went out of his way to absolute BURY the prospects of Jimmy G and Mac Jones to fill his Pats hate narrative.

What's up with the beef Fred has for Sean Grande? Fred was defending Mike Gorman for when he was out this past weekend and Grande filled in. Fred was saying something to the effect that Grande was coming off like a shill to get noticed by NBCSports Boston so that he could be considered a replacement for Gorman. Wallach was REAL quiet while Rich also gave no Fs and chuckled away. Is there a back story I'm not hearing?

Not liking the drunken recaps is definitely a me problem, but beyond that - I REALLY didn't need to hear an entire segment of Bird this morning as part of one.

Possibly because that's the gig Wallach wants?

Hmm I don't think there's any back story. Fred said as much. He's close with Gorman and perceived Grande as taking a veiled shot at Gorman. I checked the Twitter post that Fred was talking about and didn't see it the same way.

I do think it's funny that Fred openly shits on the radio gigs.

I urge anyone who enjoys the bits on this show to listen to the drunken Bruins recap, top of hour 3 today. It evolves into beautiful absurdity, including “Goblin talk with Mike and the Mad Dog”. Fred’s Mike is pretty good.
