3-D NC begins at 805. I was curious to see help and -- in baseball broadcast was going to look and feel yesterday mr. Armey joins on the AT&T hotline. I gotta tell you jury ten seconds into your open but Don I said. -- is not going to be a problem it's seem like every other NASA were so low Grammy broadcast -- -- yeah. Welcome good John again and it felt good to be back yeah obviously didn't. You know I was I was nervous the date or I got up early yesterday at 6 o'clock in the morning -- don't normally do you know for 1 o'clock game. -- -- Well one I got there you know but to the ballpark but from my comfort zone and I don't know -- happy with the -- -- -- promote thought it was a pretty good game. Until the end and you know I'm -- level. Tell us how nervous you were -- dog and tell us from how it feels going forward do you think. That that the tough parts over now and you'll just be baseball for you -- and won't be any to start. -- you know we it is going to be I mean that's what that would -- the whole light years to come back into baseball now you know what what the public but it's going to be different buying you know I. Adobe people let us happy that I -- back to the people not that I'm happy that I back. But I made my decision and I bury my decision to go want to be myself well. -- during the game and in the and that's what I plan on doing it -- if that plays well great. If it doesn't. I'm sure the people would not sit in the people with the Red Sox look. We'll make proper adjustments but you know this is the way I've I've got to go about doing things. And I was nervous you know I've been a little bit nervous for a spring trying to -- and so my very first line. And let you know what I got the ball pocket with cigarette and select comfort zone and it back now with -- that agrees you formally you know there is help right. Who's not happy that your back are you hearing from a lot of -- Oh I don't I don't win beauty. You know I mean actually -- sorry but I don't believe that the -- that -- you know. Well I mean I I don't know why I'm sure that you let Iraq that are not you know. But I can control that and I can only control what would -- would look I'm trying to do. It would imparted it was a move all of my life and I'm trying to get my Italy and it will allow what they're alive they're. The united -- this this you know me being an example -- -- Will be a good example for everybody else so ID you know it just because it was just nice to get back in. This atmosphere that I've been in the 27 years and and actually forty years. Professional baseball and it is it is maybe -- -- backed -- is doing -- If you really address the situation with your son Jerry would mean you run -- -- -- that was actually the right moment ago this -- sort of -- and in. Deduce it was during discussion behind the scenes anybody -- and want you to to talk what's on the top I was just gonna be baseball from the start. Now going to be baseball because I you know I -- -- Kind of press conference back before -- left I did that for a reason so that when I get down here. I could just you know it's a question about baseball talk about baseball and not talk about my personal life -- know what. That's that's where I wanted to do when I had that little. -- conference back at Madison pride accomplishment and I didn't want to instructional -- now O'Neal. I do not wanna match around here on so at all I had to say about everything. And is it wouldn't be here -- anybody else look into Indianapolis of that so. That was my at my feeling and now we you know we we just discussion -- got -- -- Hollywood about the missile do again. And I assume that brilliantly -- -- Billiton and that's. Final question on that subject I suspect their reaction to yesterday's specifically it was pretty unanimously positive. Is that the as best you can tell Jerry. I hope so I got a lot of excellent phone call last night people who matter to me. The end they were very pleased you know what the way things have gone in very pleased. Way. You know I -- represented myself yesterday so. Well that makes you feel good and it is people like hear about it people like over very well. In. You know sold but from that point of view you know I know they'd be honest with. It's very well we you know we were glad to see you back but we were even more excited to see L Duncan and action digit -- dog. She seems like -- we just played just played her one -- little bits from this today she seems like she's already comfortable on the job. Yeah I just got to meet him a couple of days ago you know -- -- very polished you know like to keep them look. Very good background -- sports -- out of the Atlanta area. In she's in the side write it and and you know go live with there is -- And does seem to know what she was argue about dollars and you know I think it was say that she should be very happy with the way things. Develop or her very first hearing -- -- AME. Thought about being nervous I mean here's someone who's you know bought into the very first game in retrospect I mentioned I mean that you gotta be craters there that. But doing that -- the fact is she didn't seem to be and she got the questions in the you know I put she did a very very nice job. A jury would like about -- baseball team what concerns you. Well what I like about it is the approach they're taking you know coming into the C may have turned the page. Got it focuses it is it is 2014. -- low -- look from 2013. You know working extremely hard I've I've been here about five days now -- -- quiet and about three practices prior to that. The blog yesterday and what I'm seeing it -- much the same sort a year ago. The end you know everybody's on board. I think I think a lot of the players ought quality game to Florida. To say hey look you know we're defending world champions now we've got to -- -- another one and that's the kind of approach I think that they're taking about it a very good camp. -- Farrell and very pleased with the way the players have responded. You because you don't know you know I'm winning this thing you know you just don't know how guys are merely. If react you know us is going to be OK you know all the walking apart again and it about the cases and other approaching. The end you know I think that they are they're doing at the right way it did feel very civil. The last spring training. Sergeant what are the what are what is -- do if Sizemore stays healthy Jerry produces. All through spring training tough situation he said Bradley junior backed down and you keep Sizemore. I didn't handle that situation. The I think you probably people both you know it Sizemore did what he. Actually to make his return successfully to the big -- he's currently I'm the guy coming up. You know two years the inactivity because of injury. And I don't -- you can expect him to be an everyday life. -- you can get you know a couple three games a week out of -- I think you know that level that he produced currently the Cleveland Indians that you've got. You know a real -- network. I don't look at the competition to be honest with you I think they're both sides. Will be able to find a place on this team but it -- got a long way to -- got a lot of they ask you. In game before unique Serbs felt completely healthy and ready to produce Major League level. He's off to a very good start which is the kind. It and you know I think that they have been out there better ball well with both those guys on the left because I guess they'll make it so that you are on the guy every single break. You know what he's been out for two years with injuries. Do you think they should have brought -- they should still attempt to bring back Stephen Drew Brenda. I don't think. And so now I think there I think it's fine with what they got to watch both who pulled out very closely I've been talking to but you'll be working with the daily. I thought the barrel completely absent. Some minor issues it would still work non. Defensively. Particularly -- right. Did it working very. Diligently with it is that first step you know if I don't get ready for a pitch to get -- -- quick first step. -- federal rules. And I think that that the work with the kind of putting -- been down here -- commitment pretty solid that are so. You know news it was pretty good in an. And I I think that surely it will in the the question is well little -- it will bounce back. And become the guy that you know we -- -- -- would be like better today. From his view is really worked in the -- and I mean he put on. He would really really strong and and he you know he didn't put on a lot of weight put on a lot of muscle and so that's a good sign that he was prepared to back you know such young -- As most on players welcome that consult the got kind of a workout routine in the offseason and he certainly did so you know he's prepared themselves. He set himself up success. And hopefully they serve the broadcasters that you -- so critical. When you start the seat and outlook it's but -- what your situation like no because. Thank you incompetence they should be able to you know sustain that that that blue plate up courses he's that the a couple of bats. All of a sudden the -- working on illegal again and I do that so that's important for. A Jerry Dempster told us last year was the most fun year he had ever had baseball -- -- -- that's an outgrowth of winning the World Series. But he went on the say specifically. This was the first time in his entire career that he was part of a club halted did not have a single able. In that clubhouse is that rare in Major League Baseball to your way of thinking. Yeah I think it's very rarely saw that dictates certain guys yeah. You keep other guys in check and they have that combination you know I clicked with -- -- -- -- like he he's. You know all who you know wolf I'm not afraid to step up somebody and saying hey that's the way we -- on here. In that they have the kind of respect that other players listen to do so but it also stuck in the op with barrel you know he set their own. It's going to be done this way it is when we do things here. And and you know we're not going to be putting up with what we're -- now that's not to say there's not fired against in this city and when you play. -- Agree laughter cellphone. Journal it. If you can hear us up nice job yesterday. Good to have you back congratulations it was a seamless transition and it's good to see you back in the broadcast Booth put on -- -- -- right Jeremy on the AT&T --
