Chris Gasper is talking with the face of NESN, Tom Caron. Caron was a very early adopter of these Red Sox, but even he did not expect the team to be performing this well. The two get into the future of Sox top prospect Jarren Durran and how soon he could hit Boston. Commissioner Caron makes an appearance, sharing his plan to save baseball. He has ideas on how to speed up the game and introduce more action and offense. Producer Ellen Fleming dips into the “sticky substance” controversy. Caron explains exactly what Spider Tack does for pitchers and why it should be outlawed, but believes MLB needs to find some approved substance for pitchers to use for grip.
