You know like that and I was I was -- that lifted him out of the bullpen. To face Bradley. Are nine hole hitter in Heathrow right it won't fast enough to that and I think what -- so. That kind of gave me an idea of all what I wanna do locate these guys in professional Bradley I would respect that. In my mind Amare and so on to housing in the happened to the united whether I did that was a lot of pitchers I see what they -- toward guys off from and and I I start making in my mind.
