Johnny velocity the series here we take away from these past three games. That we go out and execute whatever game situation calls or we've had good starting pitching the first two games this year's. Today when when Felix ran and throw along fourth inning our bullpen picked him up and picked us up. And wearable piece this game together but. I think in the end. We take each game. Individually and respond inside. That the game situation calls for and today more than any in this year's. Above and beyond what we've talked about you know with the consistency is strikes are. I've come away from a lot of games in which is closed out almost the -- he -- a six cents on the mound which -- to throw on which location. Almost a feel for what. The hitter at the time is looking for. You know premier strike -- was it was evidence of that today. And he's very calm he's. Regardless of the role that we've had him in this year we've we've seen the the consistency start to finish and he is saved our. Our tail end audio. When he slid into first base -- -- aggravated he's got a contusion that he's dealing with and it. Begins to affect some of the other areas that he's been managing for awhile we fully expect and be on the field. Tomorrow. But when he when he aggravates it begins to kind of shut some things down nominees -- doesn't feel the explosiveness so across federal government there. Jacoby. A couple of bats -- got jammed and that that's kind of banging on that bone inside the thumb so. We are hopeful and expect him to be on the field as well tomorrow so we'll check from both -- -- in morning. Voters are about -- it but it that the two month -- haven't we don't see me because ever have. Iran that what that might just account. -- It's a a very common in. From our perspective. Hopefully government continues. But it's. Not only is he didn't efficient but. He's in is he's in complete control. In the inning that is out there inning and third inning whatever might be on back to back days it's. It's a very. Calming inning. But it Felix. Yet there's an inability to finish off some letters it's not that he created issues with. Base on balls. You know he -- north of forty pitches an inning and to me that's when he got into some danger zone from a health standpoint and with a one run only at the where was felt like we are gullible and preserve -- John he talked about it. Yet just matter timing some things he's been working on early with with Kobe and Victor. And can pinpoint that two run base at the other night that has a lot and -- a little bit is not over swinging the bat and can some -- gets. -- -- apology for just second how impressive is -- not just what he's doing but at the number of innings he's pitched in the workload that he acted earlier is it fair to say is getting stronger as the year has progressed. Wouldn't say stronger because when you look at just. The radar gun on the on the border is just a measurement -- there hasn't been an increase or hasn't been a decrease in velocity. The one thing -- Probably improved that is just the consistency command and the and that goes to the the fewer number of pitches inside an inning that it throws and you can marvel what is tone for. For the stretch of -- Here. -- certainly I mean given. That that Vick went out the inning before. In other -- you know to Kobe's double swelling and I am and so we felt like it would affect his throws. And got a more precautionary. Republican senators. Are very good thing we know we're gonna get good starting position thrown out us. A top offense in the game. Anytime you know you look Miguel Cabrera or fielder or a -- -- that order him. It it'll be important for us containing guys ahead of them to hopefully do what we can keep them off base and go out and continue to pitch. And and that's where stores up. -- I would say measuring stick to a lot of sense similar questions -- and LA against the Dodgers this is another series it will prepare for tomorrow and continue our process and laden and continue to hopefully excuse the way we have.
