Well I don't know he's in line I haven't talked to Daisuke yet he's just getting to the ballpark. You know he's gonna see how he. Steals a day after and -- then take me an appraisal of how much more he might need but it that was a very good effort dead and -- reports were. Where. We're excellent. Aaron Cook at some balls that found holes in -- course gave up that that mammoth home run that that pretty much decided the game and he's had this sort of buzz is lacked lately that way. Well you know when you put so many balls and to play and actually last night was as high strikeout night so. He got the work days. Which. Almost doubled his season total. But the the you know -- ground balls hit seven ground balls that don't want them to be -- -- dead. You know when you messrs. fired you have those guys on base.

We're trying to get used today he and you know we we we've got to when we get we get these guys and then. You know it seems like every time their running the balls all the -- we've heard. We're -- institute a couple take sides possibly so we could steal some bases at least it's. It looks like a double in the game in the heart of cards but it. I think we're cables are plenty of runs and even with Weaver pitched against us that I did think we'll score enough to -- this game or any update on David. Just that he felt better yesterday and says it is as long as it he's keeps feeling better I guess he gets closer to -- -- -- on -- roster. Probably. You look at the lineup tonight yesterday -- had. Pedroia hit second in Ellsbury did you flip flop them today. Yes just China's you know. See what might look great and you know who is at -- seven David and in Carl. You know in the first five guys are going up there again. -- mix and match in the NC would works best together and to do it on the fly hopefully we'll we'll get a good feel for tonight. Weaver was hit hard in his last start but he's fifteen in three course where buck calls have been just about -- good distance may.
