You know other than -- have a little bit off but. If you can't really say that the thing is that three months. Can't really complain much note that fifth inning get a big RBI in that inning and the only two runs of the game we scored there. How mindful argue that hey we're not gonna get many chances against David Price we got to get him now. Yeah I mean once and I've got that that they didn't get sick that we you know we really needed.
