Tanguay and Zolak Thursday Recap 10/22

The red hot questions throughout the show today were why did the Pats-Denver game do better than the Sox-Angels game three of the ALDS and is this a Sox or Patriots town?  Tons of calls and instant feedbacks weighed in on those topics and it seemed like the Pats won out on this day.

Also on the show, the boys spoke with Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated and the MLB Network about the playoffs, A-Rod, the possible dwindling interest in baseball and Jason Bay.  Heyman wasn't buying that baseball's popularity is dying, but did say that A-Rod has turned his postseason fortunes around this year and has done so quickly.

Chris Mannix, also of Sports Illustrated, displayed his vast knowledge of not only basketball, but all sports, when he spoke about the popularity of the Sox-Pats as well as A-Rod and the Yanks.  Towards the end of the interview, Mannix told us that Rajon Rondo will be a restricted free agent and questioned if we'd trade Steve Nash for the Celtics Point Guard straight up?

Phil Castinetti of Sportsworld also came on and told us that, hands down, Tom Brady is the man for collectibles but that this town is still a Red Sox town.

Tune into Friday's show, when Tanguay and Zolak will talk to Boston Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers at 10:30am.  Also on the show, we break down Pats-Buccaneers, the trip to London, have our NFL picks, and Nick Cattles checks in with his Fantasy Foreplay.  All that and more, 10a-2pm on The Sports Hub.
