Nothing better than not happening yet happen in there and go -- zone at all broad area actually that's what's working out so that Richard double trouble. Was to attack was that -- -- you know that 2014. Is it when you look back is is that this. You know that the is that the best team we've played for the most unique team and how do you rank that over the years. I think you know immediately rerouted back together storage start flying again and you start remembering war that. No normal life circumstances planets and yeah. In which. It is just a reminder of what. What a unique group spoke well it's one group of guys Dave McCarty have in pitches all night laughing. You know and he would show on here on the bench. And -- up with the as a player at the list. And you're -- -- but that are truly a team a little had some great scenes. Well -- Have that chemistry along with the success with that makes them exceptional. Hey tech demo nobody Ellis Burks it that he was what are we -- -- third base coach -- first phase of what was his position. He he wasn't playing in only our fields knows -- you just don't play.

I'm not happened I haven't personally seen them. Sit down and wrote about lunch list. Other abilities now three years in overtime and that's special stuff for their opinions their votes try and work quick and they can work. And is -- you know when you look at these guys and is is it surprising that they're struggling a little bit after last year or is such as baseball. I mean that there really is you're talking about a nine this stretch of banks and struggled. Just before that now he had no one likes war tribes share -- next thing you know their words their one game perhaps came out of first and now you and later there at the bottom of the seller. Now on the court within nine days it's. A little bit different -- you know it's that that didn't didn't really. A lot of it is just pushed through the Internet and a combination sometimes -- a little less on the offensive production side and went on to it than. I was given them too much runs early. The consistency of holes at the lion to allow them to do what they've done the last three days. Yeah well unintended go right. I mean it's a grind of the day when they came back. Their retirement you know like you -- -- again. There's no great opportunities when a ball game. Yeah that John Lackey he's me and thank god for him right now you know.
