And new England's nonprofits on 79 troop once he wrote nine -- 37 is the number the bid on the opportunity for you and your three pals. Sit up and Benz luxury suite and watch -- reds game joining us on the AT&T -- Wakefield -- Waco are you this up early frivolous and are you know. I'm great. -- don't find pay at nine and twelve and you know how it works on talk radio you know how it works in the stands as a player you had preached patience even at nine and twelve because that's what players enough to managers do is it more difficult to be patient or preach patience now the shift their army outside. Looking into this team that is at best off to a sputtering start. Yeah I can continue to be patient especially when it's -- according appear to be happening M September you might have to. -- depending what the world a bit but. I'm not worried about this game their very good they're they've gone to a couple hiccups here and there -- -- -- Oh no I think you're all on the -- the great bullpen has been fantastic job the starting pitcher and has been good at times laughter. There's maybe get the whole package together at one time. Would you agree Tim that the Yankees have found and -- it too early for that -- three you know now he's 27 and all in the last. Two seasons. Yeah I hear he's pretty good -- the real thing they're getting what they paid for for sure. The guy you waited until now argued I thought he would throw a lot harder but. You know the benefits as his ball moon he drove to different what are you got a great change. You've got a lot night. If you agree that the the logical move here is Daniel Nava going down that. Jackie Bradley defense has earned him a spot here and you need victory and you need -- so. The guy the odd man out is Nava. Unfortunately that's probably going to be -- -- so -- not a -- sent out you would want would be. Backup.

I hate tennis culture and I think I know the answer this question are you rooting for a guy to stay in the bigs and not get sent down who can provide some offense. Or are you much more assured when you turn around and standing on the mound. And -- -- in left and Jackie Bradley juniors in center and victory goes in right if you like defense behind. I'm a little bit ball you know put that I'm on the firm believer that it can be sent in more games on. And anything and he got -- -- and probably go under and out so well and you know what helped them last year was. Taking ground ball that Thursday and being you know more brutal -- all all -- so. That they do and -- -- it it it you know one other thing we're. You know. He probably need the board I don't know. A lot of the seat being on the team but before we actually go to our -- -- -- has had four starts -- he areas almost eight in his velocity is down is this a performance -- there's -- more do you when you're watching him pitch he pitched with a you don't.
