And what do we know about Zach Stewart who came from the white sacks in the U -- straight. -- -- going to be on the mound you know like I've just seen some video and you know is good sinker eight pitches to contact he holds runners well as good athlete on the mound. And that we'll see how he does against the LA Angels. While the Angels are swept last weekend pitching match up back. That we saw last week with -- Weaver and buckles and Weaver was pretty effective within 87 mile an hour fastball. Yeah 87 that denying the not throwing only once did but to know he has such a deceptive. Delivery with the ball gets on players'. A little differently than other pitchers and it takes a little getting used to hopefully -- home just last week will. Be more accustomed to what they're seeing this week and what his buckles have to adjust after they hit in my last week on lower a lot of seeing ideas yeah he needs to get doubles ball's going matters -- that second baseman and that. It's the same ways to pitching. We see the lineup does not include Cody Ross is this that they -- -- being -- it is the to the you know the night -- the country and you know with the right hander out they're left in -- tomorrow we have a travel day. Coming up on Sunday were we to operated to and Oakland's schedule left handers so we just try to keep as fresh as possible. And have -- and way in the cleanup spot tonight. Well somebody has to hit there and you know Ryan it's always to the task. And you get in place you starting shortstop is that they restaurant realist or something you wanna see with the Hussein. Little of both -- -- we know that -- a good player and -- -- wanna keep Jones just sitting here in im watching and you know Mike you get an off to a every now that he's playing really well that day even he he gets tired at times will David Ortiz -- -- on the trip and -- That's yet to be -- -- it and that is he feeling a little better since the shaft I hope so but I haven't Danica that report yet. How about your bullpen now Bobby -- going a little bit short to. Since the last injury is it. Certainly enough to get by without a day off. Yeah I think we have enough to get by with Alfredo out there now and you know there there -- rested arms and you know -- might even rest a few more of them. And will close if it gets down to that localities the service tonight Billy's not available color or if I use him earlier of course them. We have other options is that because of -- pitch yesterday. Yeah well Bailey pitch yesterday and basically for a five. -- Mercedes best question of the day Bobby yet time realist art -- is here here and answer. And you're one of thirteen.
