Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer, Chaim Bloom, wasn’t in Houston with the team for Tuesday’s MLB Trade Deadline, he was back in Boston. Bloom had some excuses as to why he couldn’t get to Houston and Felger was not having it with Bloom’s excuses.
Felger: But one little sidebar there. The thing that bugged me when he said I couldn’t get to Houston, the flight times, like I don’t if he was being serious or not. But just as a quick personal aside. People who don’t know how to travel bug me. It’s like, grow up, man. You can’t figure out how to get to Houston? You know, what you need your dad to call up and get you some plane reservations, Chaim? Like, go to Google flights and type in Boston to Houston, and start fiddling around with it and find the flight. I’ll find you a flight. You need me to find you a flight? I’ll find you a flight in 5 minutes. You need me in Houston tonight? I’ll be in Houston tonight. There’s no direct flights to Houston? I’ll figure it out. I’ll fly somewhere else and drive. I’ll connect. But I’ll figure it out.
Oh, but what about the show? I’ll bring my box and I’ll do it from the road if I have to do it from the road. Well, what about the, I’ll figure out the connection. I’ll figure it out. I’ll. I’ll get from point A to point B and do my job. I’ll be able to figure it out. You don’t hear me say I couldn’t figure out the flights. I couldn’t figure out the flights. Oh, God, I can’t stand that. You need your daddy to make the reservation?
Murray: There’s always a way.
Felger: There’s always a way, Murray. There is always…there is ALWAYS a way to get from point A to point B and still do what you need to do. Especially now, because you can do it all remotely. Okay, so like I’m speaking from experience and current experience, like, you can do it. You can grow up, figure it out, get from point A to point B and do your job. I don’t want to hear that you couldn’t get there. Like that to me is like, are you a freakin child? All right. Anyway.
