Know that in that situation and certainly we're concerned with the I was facing together but it. Greg you think in double play ball there which your approach in a situation. I you don't have as I was trying to get the guy out you know I was obviously pretty dangerous. -- we're doing. And you know especially in a two run game with him but that's gonna mention that I get that commitment to them and and -- about. And then you know worry about probably make it right about that. So you know what -- wasn't thinking about the double play that was a bonus you know duplicate on the ground coaches when you look at the problem warmup you probably -- right away -- you know. Yeah yeah you know that was that was the that I was getting ready for and you know and in a perfect world it probably goes through that inning you know what when you -- no problem -- I'm just happy you know if it was committed to do the job but you know certainly should be forgotten what it -- Lester was visited.

Yeah I know is a little bit of a surprise but at the same time it's always nice to be wanted in the and you like to think anytime you're involved in a trade you're going someplace where they won more than where you left and I had a brief stint here back to 20062007. I was certainly -- role player for -- contributing to this time around. You can be asked this question above the five minutes but it -- who has the higher SEC you were Levine was -- you don't have much to have a compared I think he may be so young that they changed the that is the scoring -- his might have been out of 24 minutes of the sixteenth you know it's been that we have that disclaimer though that's not -- -- -- -- man I'm sure it was a lot tougher. I'm flops he's not easy either bring man -- you. You said -- I didn't have that that about the history you've made that. Yes certain certainly pretty -- I mean obviously.
