But he's clutch we set in Boston did we did you tell -- Coke -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's that he moved past that got to get a Ehrlich is the only get stronger as he goes on yes yes suggested as king captains -- and out. I just whereas -- starts just the Berlin re you know with a one point 23 yeah I Norris. Students are out of you know asked around in the in the seventh and eighth inning I think it was eight dollars and what is it a 108 pitches to start into the seventh the eighth and the retired. Five for the next six guys -- strikeouts no pitch slower than 98. Well after I -- laden right. That's it. -- -- -- It all the magic. Arm tally is just that you know I. I'm really not described the magic word. But legal argument you draw. More times than not. And what happened. -- Billy -- still tastes like in his office annoyed. Does not assaulted a smooth one because I watched like we saw money ball in his pickup truck and drive does away with some music in the background and yet Tom Petty fireball. But it's all for naught if they don't be Verlander you know yeah magical -- you told let go onto win everything. Does the movie company re released the film yet where you know what they re do it because this run would be much more press from the one that was featured in the in the movie where that in the middle and just labels -- They won twenty point -- trade -- analysts in the movie. It -- and -- they glorified. In regular season run and that's OK that was a great run. They won nothing in the post season and Tomei and the more we in this case that an unbelievable regular season and maybe maybe maybe. Post seasons well it's going to be to Denver.

The vanishing twins look to produce good label alone if it's. The -- and ethical and he did that. We'll get into that mobile really at to have Josh Hamilton all yeah I told you Josh Hamilton -- that the production last week was two years and twenty million and that's dropping like a year and six and a half what what we know for sure -- -- the Texas Rangers right replied that's not right that's pretty much done because Nolan Ryan. -- credited to your head of the curve on this and thought that this would be awful for Hammel then this would not be a good thing you should not quit during the season don't quick -- until now.

You know those issues. Our our. Are created that that that call.

A bit but everyone pitches there we went -- and it's -- ten and ten of skull. A -- Hamilton had cryptically -- blamed his post all star break slop on a personal issue that involved -- being disobedient toward god yeah number that yes. So I guess. That that was this was this the this debate. It was chewing tobacco.
