Follow along here with Dale and Keefe as they talk to Peter King and discuss Tom vs. Time. Listen live right here

Hour 1: 

10 a.m. : Brandon Phillips is a hero. Who will make the Red Sox playoff roster? Keefe thinks Phillips is the best option the Red Sox have at third base. 

10:10 a.m. : Dale is curious to see how seriously Cora takes this weekend series. Cora will keep resting players. 

10:15 a.m. : Roger Goodell has declared football is back on Twitter. The comments in response to the tweets "are very busy." Goodell probably doesn't even see what gets tweeted from his account.  

10:20 a.m. : Tom vs. Time was very short and Mut and Lou audio was in the documentary.  The first thing Dale wrote in his notes about it was "Why?" Why did Brady do this? Guerrero was in it for a second in "one rub-down moment." After watching Kaepernick's commercial, Dale now believes he can dunk a basketball. 

10:25 a.m. : Will the results from Brady be the same with this new work/life balance mindset? Keefe doesn't want Brady to announce his retirement before the season because the farewell tour would be too much. 

10:35 a.m. : Brandon Phillips has a stellar debut. Keefe wants him on the playoff roster. Players would be more upset with Nunez not being on the roster than Devers. 

10:40 a.m. : Confusion over whether or not Phillips is eligible for playoff roster. He is eligible. Dale got that wrong yesterday. 

10:45 a.m. : Peter King will join the show at 11:30. The NFL didn't know about Kaepernick's Nike ad ahead of time. 

10:50 a.m. : Swihart should be on the postseason roster. Caller thinks Keefe needs to pump the breaks on Phillips--it was just one game. Keefe doesn't want to take the fun out of Phillips, who is also a "savvy baserunner." 

Hour 2: 

11:05 a.m. : How will the Red Sox construct the playoff roster? The word of the day is promulgate, as Dale helped promulgate the myth that Phillips is not eligible for the playoff roster. 

11:10 a.m. : Dale hung up on a guy finally saying some nice things about Keefe. Keefe apparently had a good reputation in a Chinese restaurant in New Hampshire. Two Tigers broadcasters got into a physical altercation and had to be broken up. Are fist-fights back? 

11:15 a.m. : Could Keefe and Rossi fight Dale? Keefe is working out again because people have been bullying him online for being fat. The Chinese restaurant the caller was talking about is not actually a Chinese restaurant but is a biker bar. We would hear more about this in Keefe vs. Time. 

11:20 a.m. : Keefe saw Ozzy Osbourne in concert once. It's amazing that Ozzy is touring again because he wasn't even in shape when Keefe saw him years ago. 

11:30 a.m. : Peter King joins the show and says Goodell has been hiding out pretty well this offseason. King said he likes the Kaepernick Nike ad and the NFL will turn the other cheek and move on from it. Will kneeling be an issue this season? King thinks that's up to Trump. He also loved Tom vs. Time and Brady was "a little profane" in the epilogue. 

11:50 a.m. : Nike is worth more than the NFL. The NFL didn't know about the Kaepernick Nike ad ahead of time. The publicity value for Nike has been over $100 million the past few days. Kaepernick is not great at narration. 

Hour 3: 

12:15 p.m. : Dale is done underestimating how angry people are about players kneeling for the anthem. Keefe thinks games will still get monster ratings. There wasn't a whole lot there in Tom vs. Time. Again, why did he do it? If he really didn't care what people think why didn't he just answer the questions about Guerrero? 

12:20 p.m. : Is Rossi listening to the show today?

12:30 p.m. : Noon Thirty: A trip around the NFL with their picks for the season, which starts tonight. Rossi thinks the Dolphins will be competitive. Keefe has the Steelers in the NFC North. Dale thinks the Le'veon Bell situation will be an issue. 

12:50 p.m. : Keefe is listed last in the Patriots pregame show title. Brady admitted it will be difficult to play another few years. 

Hour 4:

1:05 p.m. : Will NBC show Malcolm Jenkins tonight during the national anthem tonight? Nike and NBC are both corporate partners of the NFL. The comments on Goodell's tweet are still pouring in. 

Malcolm Jenkins will likely do something during the anthem tonight. Will ratings be down during opening night this year compared to last year? 

1:15 p.m. : There will be the people who burn shoes but this will not hurt Nike in the long run. Dale is obsessed with the ups and downs of the Nike stock. 

1:20 p.m. : Keefe almost defends Kaepernick while fighting with a caller who said Kaepernick was almost cut. 

1:35 p.m. : Nike puts a lot of money into the NFL in jersey rights, player representation, etc. Keefe loves a good sandwich. 

1:45 p.m. : It is John Tomase's birthday. 

1:55 p.m. : What else ya got? Francesa has been getting calls about his new app.
