Let's see what a guy who was an outstanding center fielder. Former Major League out the other he's an excellent analyst and writer for espn.com. Doug Glanville joining us I can't -- he would Doug thinks of my theory how are today Doug. I don't know how are you. Good now I'm serious about this not to take anything away from Boston I really think an issue for the cardinals in the World Series. Mike Metheny in the Doug and I'll watch status at all man that's like Mike Hargrove. Well that's like Tony La Russa with the -- in the late eighties he just seemed really tight mean at times the cardinals played that way you think there's anything to that Doug. Well both looked -- that about it you're gonna accept the tone that down. But you know he did seem tight if you look at how the cardinals played overall because they're cute about this team was record setting -- their ability to try to run. It's going to listen to the outside of the ultra you know they just they struggled and it. Execute like there are used to. -- don't follow the ought to ought to give them a lot of credit because. Is part of what the most qualified boundaries of the game he did player development he did use of pitching coach. You duplicate -- in the pitching coach capacities. That player development. He's done everything to get to this level and facilities so -- -- the -- to understand how to -- his players. Policy defeated the great job but not quite as long -- come Charlton at the start. Doug Glanville -- -- here in 957 game and he's your right Doug and certainly I didn't mean to take anything away from the Red Sox I think this series will be remembered primarily for a couple of things one. David Ortiz. How was he almost Barry Bonds ask his policy was in the series. By their -- that I was beyond next level of these -- of play issues. Playing good and they'll pay the file federal disrupting everything he just blew ten steps ahead. Obviously out of the swing going but that was -- confirmed. Coming out of the ALCS for the cardinals recognizing -- Ortiz Pedroia worked the top of their game that is -- Ortiz -- another level. But this became so dangerous so focused. Just that they did what they -- they walked all day -- classmates. Because that was not a -- of -- about the -- for the government. Russell red -- lot of it. And I think the other thing that people remember for better or worse the obstruction call coarse salt water under the bridge now cardinals actually won that game but what do you think when that happened last Saturday night -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know the fact -- it is really you know have opportunity at the ballpark to rule intent and I think that's. But I think their that they have to be careful with the state do visit the rule -- Note that doesn't have to be something that's potential you know he was of the way in the obstructed runner. I think it's slippery slope before Republicans start trying to judge what. First baseman the infield that was trying to do that case but no doubt that that was called the ruling default rule of have -- about hurting possible long term. Doug wasn't David Ortiz is brilliance I mean didn't have the effect almost of obscuring how well the Red Sox pitched in this series. Well it dead because you know he's so dangerous of the kind of focused on him but. But the Red Sox to provide during the season the Red Sox had probably both post Apollo offensively game but we just stayed back. But they also -- achieved out of the stadium -- the highest stolen base percentage of any team in baseball this year. So very possibly softened. Had all they were looking forward bat 12 punch you know political particularly luster to go to the next level that was really the difference maker of the had left -- Has always appear to be elected supporting cast member in the simply used a one day -- been quite patent consistent one. That this series you know the opposite way to right the truly based epic that released -- of the series in their favor. Doug Glanville don't enjoy minister -- 95 point seven the -- some we've debated for years you've done in the program is the role of chemistry in a winning organization. Does the -- for John Lackey symbolize exactly how that clubhouse changed. -- -- -- -- the pivot point bill question about it because if you do you as a quality picture of doing -- -- a lot of personal challenges with. You know he was missing in action but now. Do you that you that level -- -- -- that's restart where it also felt powerful and they'll try to that there was these -- recently at the wholesale. And we're talking about chemistry as you mentioned. He -- -- -- people make a lot of that you thought you know like install Coventry W I -- This is. So I thought about it as a blow it -- to play well and everybody respects your role at your job -- you know it's it's gonna end up pretty lost roughly if you got a -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Expert for another look at the better that deal right there can't buy it by doing a solid emea solid ninth right my back as a guy who was trumpeted chemistry he definitely key element -- thanks for that I had no. -- I would Bob. Giving respect obviously that would deferring to -- about it. There you -- -- tremendous. Doug how unique is that you know I was so happy for the people boss with what they've been through but. As far as the atmosphere at Fenway how as a guy who played their how unique is that that mr. compared to the rest of baseball. Well at this stuff police standalone demand that the fans -- -- -- -- run -- -- -- back in the on deck circle of really god like you know pick particular -- -- -- itself. It's it's close quarters they're all all about Boston. Big time supporters and it will you know good -- for the love -- -- several -- It's -- -- going into the World Series. The -- when I picked I picked the cardinal. As apostles like all the turbulence like the other team I picked up a lot of teams took a lot of it is but. My tweet Twitter Twitter account everybody blown about the they -- like to know about haven't felt it -- -- lots of -- -- are second to know when it comes to their passion for the achievement. You know especially here for the of the folks who would then turned into the Boston Arafat so there's no doubt that they have -- fire and -- of their time boost this year the superior. If you're a Boston fan and you like to share with -- how you feel about as predictions aren't there -- Doug Glanville. Doug -- a great -- hopefully next more followers there are absolutely. -- talked about the fact that they through the season where that sort of offensive team -- Figured pitchers out in in in to grind out runs lots of different ways isn't that really what happened in how they dealt with Michael -- the second time around. -- don't look dugout and have no ability to adjust quickly showed their experience you know that's. That's to their credit because they solved next time around it's okay we've talked about fastball. To block collect together have with a fastball. He was locating a little better than the previous start that they were there ready and had nobody did have a base pa system known we have some veteran guys. I really think well you know it's it would manager of the year absorb because of his ability. To take his qualifications and so many different ways to develop their team. To go from where they came from a hostage this year so. You know I I believe well and that mix is going to be good for a long time to -- going to be the first successful manager. Sustainably and Boston's other very happy -- for a lot of years. -- since you mentioned the great hall of Famer Ozzie Smith we have a hall of fame -- here mark -- the what are you thinking David Ortiz obviously still. Got to some of his career left you think David Ortiz is on a hall of fame track in your opinion. Well he's not pace and I think he did you know a couple more years. And you know it will be one of those things that. Because -- portion sort by it but other it's out of there definitely. But told against designated hitters I think that's sort of to work against -- particular Edgar Martinez agrees there for the Mariners. It's tough to get over the -- but it you know fees you know continuing obviously building are being number one until many different categories as the DH. I believe that we give him a leg up. Don't you think the crazy success the Sox of that and so -- you got to factor that -- before that I -- -- time when all the Red Sox can never win now they've they've they've won what -- twelve into one World Series games with David Ortiz that -- be a factor as well shouldn't it. Well no doubt the media because he's gonna go about it as a great champions you know it up perhaps the huge difference and you and blogger and -- you kind of forget the scope of that the two web. Those three ring and to just. Put this team to talk about the distinct so dangerous significance protections against. But I get off to last year. I know you know it's obvious cheerleading is Hezbollah is also fired people up that he was. So you can't get any better than how he performed in the world certainly. -- -- portal -- -- we're -- orchestra orchestra arrived in a deal that any situation that that speaks volumes how how -- he's played. -- -- he treated the cardinal pitching staff like a dugout phone -- Doctor different I should just. -- probably good values really get flat line I think it was. He just modernizing the game let me get a zobel wireless so yeah. Do you Doug Glanville ESPN is our guest here on the rise guys on a 57 game -- bad to give the cardinals they're do you. They at least to me look like a team that has been put together to now can they might even -- a little ahead of schedule to contend for years do you see it that way. Do I do and you know what what think you have to look at the cardinals date they must be considered one of the best organizations and sports Soviet. Because their development and the way they select their personnel and the way they consistently. Compete and win. You know this is something that's not mistaken they they they'll -- collapse and the development. There's probably guys we have spoken to like culpable and gotten this because of this across. Getting picked off but he does also future guys opted to they have somebody guys coming up. That are going to be impact players right away so. You know this is just one year and now the distrust towards -- I had problems with these guys are going to be in contention every year. Doug Glanville thank you so much happy Halloween sir we appreciate your time very much. Totally out of Ali thanks.
