Leaving out there on the mound -- -- how you want to grow up and your market especially at the wearing -- You know -- topic that -- -- -- are being healthy propagate by -- percent at this point this year and let you know -- The way that I did trio. -- I don't think anybody would never -- their church was without feeling. You know Curt Schilling was on the air with -- says now while ago but but really made some comments to the contrary and said he wasn't in your body. But there comes a time where every Major League pitcher needs to understand that they've got a pitch to an amount of pain. And he certainly insinuated at the time that that you needed to go out there and do that. You know it's one thing for chump like me never been a big league mound to say anything but with someone like Curt Schilling Curt Schilling says that I think there's a group of people that that certainly listened. What's your response. Are we calling her out -- -- it was for her -- your little series that's are. -- grew older and watching church and you know he had something that matters greatly pitcher aren't -- I'm being relevant. Actually thrown ball wherever he wants and it didn't matter -- on his younger days and restore money are -- a or his last couple years surely use that 87 and they are married guy but he -- still you know if you wanted to -- our way over all right and buried do that in our rely on. On movement for the most part and destruction thing. -- -- -- -- My body was feeling out. You know up until about three weeks ago it was you know what enabled them -- a ball like -- like our nature. Could be productive and help -- team now and well it's yeah I mean it's two different universe stores or by our own opinion there and I'm on my. I'm pretty confident that. I'm needed the right decision not to not to rush back in and I just knowing. A bit and -- children and not -- She joined the saint chewing on the second to last original hole and I felt that that game against Anaheim you know I knew that. -- wasn't ready in a rush back from my prolong this. Deals that are doing out but you know I was trying to get try to back on the along so well and help our club because there are. You know a short -- line that's my job. Clay when you started throw in the bullpen and do -- talking about the progression of unity going whatever was 607080%. When you're on the mound for the rehab outing the other day did you feel like you can go all out a 100%. I mean not after all America brought in July it was my first arbitration years and I didn't need the last an hour early drop there and okay I'm trying to blow everybody away -- -- -- -- part of how they expect you know that he only got anything out of that. Stronger work on mechanics and and he have the same delivery. And the released foreigner thing and match bachelor. That's where my mind that you're not starter problem is the game -- stroke -- in the -- yeah order our -- -- my. Everything up and try to throw hard drive -- struck their -- by -- you know -- -- far it was a rehab start so I was real little local. -- -- would you go on Friday do you feel confident that you can approach closer to what that first Major League game would be. -- -- -- And I'm not -- struggled last two days of throwing off from my own. You know all of that I'm able to load the wet ball and no more freely and then Arab. You know since that they are hurt so. There are there to be a big difference between right now on Centre forward there. You got about a month ago before the regular season ends which is a limited amount of time do you think that there is enough time for you. To get back to being the pitcher you were at the beginning of the year to have enough time enough time to rehab and and work yourself back into that kind of shape. I mean I'm much -- they. Actually got there around -- out on -- want to obviously. The way it. The results were beginning of the history are a lot of page -- go right her numbers the -- as -- -- -- -- -- I'm told most of it -- never imagined having started seeing all staggered him regularly Toronto.

Everything goes right nominee ordered built around Kabul arms -- between now and and that first graduate spartans a -- going forward and Boris. Clay when you first how this syndrome he was coming off the Chicago series and and the in the may. And then you you came back and this with some twist in terms of type the type of injury. How much did that visit to doctor enters mean to you. For a lot of reasons. You know it was it was good sense. The guy -- He's more content on a lot of guys don't perform a lot of murders on on the on the big -- guys are so. Don't know learn here in what -- say hearing back you know it. He wouldn't put it would take it probably could it could turn into something bigger here and you know threatening them. Her and certainly is -- -- -- you do or don't do this before you go to the next captain and -- -- -- or. Like that's what is happening or you move -- and straight hitters McCain is so. A truck all of -- closely at our record isn't enough for the most -- events are all about. The last couple days been like with the with the Jimmy Fund tells radio telephone going on and all of the guys. So many people stop them by our radio show in and then the team show of support last night -- talked about that at all in the club -- who leading up to the last couple games.
