Tanguay & Zolak Recap Friday 10/9

The boys were bitter to begin the show after staying up past midnight to watch a Red Sox loss in game 1 against the Angels. Tanguay says not to blame the umpires for the loss. Zolak questions Lester's "Ace" status after he picked up his 3rd straight playoff loss.

Former Red Sox and current analyst for MLB Network, Kevin Millar joined us to recap game 1 and look ahead to game 2. Here's the interview if you missed it http://www.cbssports.com/local/bost

The guys discussed the loss of RB Fred Taylor to an ankle injury and gave their solutions for the running game. Zo thinks Benjarvus Green-Ellis will see some action this week in Taylor's absence.

We let you, the listeners, control the show after 11am and you talked Sox and Pats until we wrapped it up with Nick Cattles' Fantasy Foreplay and our weekly NFL Picks. Here's what they looked like:

Tanguay & Zolak Recap Thursday 10/8

We were in postseason baseball mode today. Tanguay and Zolak broke down the Red Sox / Angels series from all angles. Gary thinks that Josh Beckett is the key to the series. Zo says Jon Lester will be a stud tonight.

Our baseball insider Jon Heyman joined us after spending last night at Yankee Stadium for Game 1. Jon told us that the Angels have a mental block against the Red Sox. He also said that Jason Varitek will be catching Josh Beckett Friday night. 

Dan Shaughnessy joined us from Anaheim and concurred with Heyman about Varitek catching Beckett. Dan tells us not to sleep on the Angels. They are a good team.

Gary and Scott can't believe that Terry Francona would cater to Beckett by having Varitek catch him. The listeners agreed and came out in full force against this move.

Coming up Friday: We break down Red Sox / Angels Game 1 and preview the Pats game in Denver this weekend!

Tanguay & Zolak Tuesday Recap 10/6

Today on the show, Tanguay and Zolak took a look at who the most important Red Sox player will be during the divisional series versus the Angels.  This discussion quickly led into an intriguing question from the boys; is JD Drew or David Ortiz more scary of an opposing hitter?

At noon, Angels color man Rex Hudler joined the show at lunch time to break down the enemy.  According to Hudler, Vladimir Guerrero has lost a step, this is Torii Hunter’s team and the bullpen isn’t as bad as outsiders may believe.  It was also agreed upon behind the scenes that Hudler is the Scott Zolak of the West Coast.

We wrapped things up over the final hour of the show with some Brett Favre talk, looking at the big game on Monday night.  We had callers from Green Bay to the Bay who provided some different angles.

Join us on Wednesday from 10a-2p, when we’re live from the CBS Scene.  On the show we’ll have Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s weekly press conferences  as well as ask you what your thoughts are on the first quarter of the Patriots season. We’ll talk to a Bruins player and head out to Denver to talk to a Bronco.
