One woman -- Swing and it's a behind Indiana deep left field this is and everything. Since that 983. Run home run for Daniel mama. Three hits in the game to three hits in the inning to a three nothing Red Sox Willie. The -- I -- I -- I was just I think with. Just in the clubhouse we got settled everyone just wants to win this is -- it's contagious and so it's getting Weathers three era as a runner and sac fly. Just yet does that we know we have them -- that we have something that I was on my mind Stafford to be home run. You know obviously I was home I was excited just because you know it gives her a little more cushion back. Yes something you know -- he rehearses your reaction just news comes out. Those unbelievable. It was a relief because I just struck out two guys have so and there was no outside picked me up -- that's what a good team it does. You heard the call you heard the an Alabi hurt his team it will little Brooks yesterday what -- senate fans home happy 31. The final Sox are five and two off today back and it Baltimore second of three tomorrow and joining us on the eighteenth the -- day after his team's offensive hero. Sox say Al Philadelphia the first baseman everything Daniel lob on the -- Maloney show hey Daniel Mike and little are you. -- good Denny get a day off here days to sort of sit back and enjoy what happened last night take it all went. Yeah I know it's it was a fun underfunded you're part of it and how that topic kind of and we'd have an off day. I cannot be IRA but you know blog either like it to pick it up into. I said -- well and then he suffered -- the expect. It's expected -- that Ryan does the flight home from Toronto and John -- told you that you going to be in the in this starting out rotation there in left field because I've talked about before as a bench player knowing the night before how important that is but for you. How does that change your whole approach that night going into that day knowing your plan. Are I think got a lot because. You know I mentioned when you know answer. What's going -- -- that you kind of coming apart and not really certain about what your role given day it's going to be and so when you know had to fight he can. Prepared mentally for the guy you don't -- but I also you are able -- -- -- so. Terms of physical ready to do what you do to be ready for this Bible goes yeah that's allowed -- -- -- that you can you it's a little. In Africa and he's really important -- urgency that. We surprise an Italian you're gonna play I mean not that to point the numbers for last year from that right side maybe not as good. On the left side when they told -- on Sunday heading into Monday was that a surprise to -- I that they would then. -- completely surprised but at the same time that I -- you know aware of you know where it -- have been you know. I can have been out from the told me I mean it goes back when you ask for a closet is -- I wasn't. All it is -- up about. It's -- Rebecca last year because you had some impressive numbers ten into the month of July. Yeah I think -- little wrist injury before going on -- disabled list -- they -- people forget about what you did those first few months. How long was that wrist bothering you know how to affected due that month. You know it may be a little more challenging. And certain to put -- bit -- -- excited keep I'd barrel in the zone allowed swing and it's just as. Part of being a part of big body had to deal goes -- and so. At the same time the united Iditarod -- you combine those who think -- -- -- and that's just you know what translated throughout -- season but. You know I'm glad to -- you know all that but behind me now so that you know this year and you know hopefully. They can't figure out why I looked up for the last month and just keep. You know. He called in terms of how you can run up front I -- whatever -- -- but it's at least -- court housing but a a last year. Or -- this year. Without. You know the game -- had last yesterday you know I don't think it was a real -- and maybe it affected us from the right side of the look at your splits on the left side he can tell -- your. Natural side what have been some of the things how difficult is it. For you to get that swing from the right side feelings comfortable left. I think about it. It doesn't tell you and go to this spring training without and so that I knew the situation opponent this year but I -- the got a you ready just in it and you need right side and stuff -- what. Well great cauldron and Victor are opening coaches and with them that -- stop that they do this from the left side the China near that right side. And one of the intimacy of that principle means so that allows you know relaxed and it gets sucked since it's where it should be all would be more consistent. In terms of the clubhouse with that will little Brooks on -- show when he said it feels different than last year we have had. When you guys Daniel in the media they keep its the same thing over over again it's different it's different explain to loss. How it's different is is there. Just one situation one thing that makes it feel that much different at 2012. What made it. I agree with the work what you got hurt or who looked as well it definitely it definitely different -- up I don't know how to describe it but. It's. I think if I would have put in order to get what you got all the way. And not -- -- the guys last -- -- auto wind -- to chip recruit a different group bring a personality different personalities you know. To create different -- and the Juli how about this year's. It with the score but it's a sport that is everyone's going to work comparable I think as. That's a -- a lot of fun to be part of it there were a bit of such guys who you know. Grind it out this one get the job done whatever way we can't such aren't very good and he didn't score and economic. A Bobble on second this talk a little finger to its pomp and it doesn't matter who you are in the final -- -- There are let down the line that streak and everywhere and doing all the little things right not -- -- -- -- what. Notes on and worked so all the way down the field coaching staff and players who barked out that we just. I think we want to start it's different but we you know really tried you know and keep going that -- sentences the new year -- it really -- great. -- John Ferrell and his coaching staff too I just. I felt like last year there was so lacked communication lack of trust in that aspect of the game and yesterday. -- in the dug out there before the game and it just it was a different feeling of Butterfield do you guys have messed around with him and Ferrell seems to be outgoing and -- the bull low. How much is that coaching staff change in looking -- some of those new coaches now that you've had in this year. You know I I was fortunate that toy as my -- about -- -- play into that part of a lot of guys -- accumulation myself that question you know you brought. I then got that first charity called -- -- big part of what. Other a huge part of it that caught but he also stole a lot content and they are believed and guides not that kind of mentality. It's what all the coaches in here it's a very positive you know since. I'm not thinking about what last year was -- wasn't -- we have this experience very positive club out. And -- -- guys go out there and computers can make the sake played it right out to a two things -- -- this mistake it's okay. Rather be president uptight about it but it's great atmosphere where you wanna go out -- -- hard you you have. Coaches and that the you that you really so has your back and so it's brought together that's emerged about you know you guys that we got it and put it. The other and it's a lot of by the department said you know that guy or haven't aren't -- tie -- won't start not good as our league in goals so it is good. Play of both sides. He came up and obviously your first at bat in your first game -- ways one that is gonna remember for a long time but it wasn't. Daniel just that first game your first five games that month the June you went eight hits. Jackie Bradley had a great spring training at a pretty good start new York and he scuffled -- little bit. It's almost like the scatter report is out on him my guesses in back in June 2010. The scatter report came on you when you got to start making adjustments what. What is he got to go through now. In the next couple weeks is pitchers start to see him and see that tape can you compare. Out what it's like to go through that early on your career. Yeah I know that I think first dog Jackie is a player you guys -- -- Phenomenal players -- he will be a phenomenal player for a long time and I think it's unfair -- You know god Taylor had a great training -- -- -- -- game -- played and what about and so. He got a lot of ball hard and -- haven't. Haven't fallen thought also not read all the all of it in your average predicting -- 200 those big difference I think. As he did but in terms of the yeah you know we in the -- that they'd be you know kind of reporting policy but it's a lot quicker I don't see -- guy that barely out. Huge star reporter. So much I think it's just. That they spot hasn't intricate games are at Pitt it's unfortunate that you. -- -- will continue it's 400 which obviously pretty. Pretty lucky in all then lissouba. But I -- he didn't -- player. Hill gets things going I don't think anyone in -- clubhouse is worried about that he doesn't get I get too low that's a huge huge key is -- Ain't no level. And I don't know I think that. There are lines nor nor are our side Eric I got and thinking about you know what's going on and you're. They're great are currently plays in -- so -- a couple -- I think you'll go to make a potential as they come to -- What the impact of the first two guys -- the first couple outings and we will Lester and book has done you saw in spring tram in. It's our 2010 a balk calls -- -- -- we all know what they've done last year was a tough year for Lester but. Getting out of the gate and knowing that you get these two guys the top of the rotation when it's on ball. -- yeah you're right -- that. I mean they've done a great job in I think that you guys know that is pure luck if you locked in we got injured Tina. You know they have a presence on the mound there and work really well how she lost her you know Chet lemon. It a lot of on the B -- each sentence with a -- can delegate slots and working to Cilic he's got a pounding the zone. They're attacking in their their -- to make -- that -- really well and you know really I think any pitcher and player they want about pop thought about -- well -- something that we all knew that they were going to do it's just -- But just a matter are the -- and that's something that I did I think at one expects them. He continue to look I don't think -- here's a story you know hoping that it -- gonna happen if we don't do it can happen no matter are going out you know starting opposite. This is really good and I think that those guys to set the tone for a while. Any offense through guard patrol -- -- knows what he's doing very it's such a few years and -- you know luckily accident. So. Without that we haven't Alfonseca were all are excited to hear out of alcohol either. And they've always had faith in guys coming out of that bullpen -- years you've been here in Boston but it. It's got to be a really good feeling looking down there now this year with the power arms to you guys that bring an out there this is nothing better than knowing got to leave in the seventh inning and knowing. And having the utmost confidence that this game is probably over given the arms that we have. I'll admit I think that is a perfect example as -- what the first game of the -- normally. Then went -- or what five or six the product code G Millar easily handling any you know you could it extend the game. Pretty easily you know you -- how are. You know a wide variety of guys didn't used to but that's it was -- where. There yesterday if we got a lead no matter who lives. You know we knew that we had failed. Entering the common story and that's something that's just. You know that you eat a little more and and you know we don't have to get -- -- that -- want it to -- and you're in your hands. Get shot on this there's a report that. You don't swear you know you Scola curse words at all is it that -- -- -- it is that one of those not tall tales Daniel lovers at Q when was the last time you did swear. I don't know I don't know I don't know how they got. Italian I go home and mark on the board and -- Black. But you don't ride -- mean -- If you're Ben Zobrist on the result pitched last night it rung up in the ninth inning and it's like that you don't you know it's worth the embark. You know I didn't I didn't see that play when you miss but I was just check until the last couple of controversial call in I don't know really what happened but it is more personal patriotic I think that we try not to hit it goes back. Well I believe -- but I battled like he should. Think he -- them being tried represented that meeting and I. I two months and I'll -- not easy being an Oprah sports or punch out a lot of blow up on -- -- but you know it. It is you have a great you have a bad game not trying to let. I look really determined but my attitude can be on the given day it got so I don't try not it -- but it has the back bluntly it might say. It -- along along ally itself. Yeah yet but -- 99 and a lot out of a out. -- about it. Wearing it but it's definitely not first pinnacle of Ireland now -- -- as well that won't believe this but I. Him Larry we just one and World Series. -- not Daniel my status Gary -- at Terry Francona beat Clement is well that's not being a -- Uh oh you don't hear it. That's really did. They'll enjoy enjoy the rest your off -- appreciate it a few minutes and -- we'll see -- Fenway -- on this week. You're welcome to population having got.
