Yup, the five o'clock hour was unmitigated praise of the Red Sox, Farrell and the players. Their Ellsbury commentary (in that hour) was restrained to comparing him to Hunter Pence & his recently signed contract and speculation that if the per year value is higher than Pence's then Ellsbury will be allowed to walk away.
During a commercial, I flipped over to Salk & Holley who were arguing with a caller who thinks David Ortiz is lazy and then five minutes of them both dismissing that...instead of laughing at the caller and moving right along. Second flip over was their interview with Farrell (which was pretty good) and then recapping the replay of the interview. Their analysis was not compelling radio - it wasn't ballwashing, but it wasn't interesting either.
The Baseball Reporter(s???) was much of the same. Some ripping of Farrell over the Stephen Drew stuff one night, but changing it the next, but giving him credit for not being arrogant and being normal about changing his mind, whatever reason. It was really odd
