You know, it you tolerate it, it's the Over The Monster Podcast.

No guest this week, so we get right down to business. Marc Normandin and Matt Kory hit the highlights and the low-lights of recent Red Soxery, including but not limited to:

1. The struggles of Adrian Gonzalez - we talk about the troubling lack of walks, and the disappearance of Gonzalez's power and what we think the reasons behind those might be.
2. The extreme struggles of Daniel Bard - What's the deal with Bard, and is the organization's prescription for him (sending him to Triple-A) the correct call?
3. The Red Sox 2012 draft haul - the Red Sox draft has been dismissed as mediocre, but we politely disagree, or at least disagree relatively speaking.
4. The future of Daisuke Matsuzaka - a quick discussion at the end of the podcast looks at where Dice-K might end up next season and what he's pitching for now.

It's a quick 50 minute shot of Red Sox information with just a hint of kookiness, all here, all for you, all on this, the 55th Over The Monster Podcast!
