Wow and now you know this morning it wouldn't -- a lot better. If I happen some of the excitement to put in their milk -- you remember. Fifth set up. They'll squabble broke the ice cream machine so we -- -- because brought only general grip it and yet remember. Bill because it does he broke the didn't -- etiquette about that ice cream machine date. What to tell what you do legal Pataki when you go to out of Portland. You interact with these young guys. And I'm I'm -- You know mama called up and prepared to -- you know when. And I and I Pollard shot him and I and I and I think when it -- -- had -- kind of thing you know me. Yeah you know -- -- were just talking about I've talked about before I don't remember listen up with what you offensively -- scored any runs. A great little held a meeting and got on the pitchers that you guys got a ball in pro shot on every night so we can at least tie. And we just sort of chuckled that have put this team offensively is struggling what was it like for you when he went through stretches like that worst kind of all on usable and have a great night no -- at the offense maybe it was going to be either. Well it is that in -- your responsibility from time to pick up your teammate and and I mean I cannot stand you know I look forward looking forward. Or adult moment in my -- more desperate doing whatever they could go around and they couldn't. I took it personal and I wanted to go there and all such other -- end -- the other team Oakmont type can went quite good. Laxity. Get a -- type of bounce back and read a little bit and and and and Ali editing will move followed him to play later. That. You know Latin and it is. A reflection of what what we went through last year. We obviously over achieved and we took pride that everybody. Beating Detroit to a lot of people look like impossible. -- it did seem. Well I'll made it happen now what happens is that the extra -- w.'s -- cut. To actually achieve global thing. I think you're reflecting on both Baghdad a little tired and and if you played. In the big leagues and play ball you can help that that he me fired probably played had hired some of that that the pictures did not have enough time to recoup. From from bell along -- on the long haul last year and I'm going to play out. He has been on the issue where everybody looking up looking in what happens do you look -- great last year and it worked out well what happened local. Well he's -- helped really really well -- and and he actually went Vietnam mild knowing that he was hurting. Well yeah like when you work out really really hard and you not completely shape. And then you've got it in the next 48 dollars. It that they can be in that happening to the team albeit proposed that we did last year. I think it is protecting right now the -- -- you're going to vote for prop and and and you know bit -- stretches where they have to travel a lot. It's not everybody's helping. Not -- we had a lot of people -- it will be very much all year this year been different it. People you know questioning but going down. Well if you acknowledge that it won't do about baseball you know but not the effect of the long -- last year. So appraisal real quickly Clay Buchholz made his return pitched pretty good didn't throw a ton of pitches but you know he's he held in their played great. But what is the what what he talked about was his mechanics. Now did you see any thing that what calls and it changed the mechanics that looks like. When he talks -- can't talk about fixing your golf swing is it that. That intent and is it in how and what did you see that he corrected last night. Look you applying -- in -- we will really really fat and and and the mechanic actually. I'd be a mechanic that probably. Were pictured landing all the mound lack of landing a plane. You don't wanna believe that the plane dropped really hard because everything -- -- But you'll actually -- and landing. -- -- And and flying open and these -- -- and there. And mechanically yet it was bad but book is that they too doubtful right. When he feels like eve -- if you the if you're mine on the prepare and there I think that in -- really help them. You know having a good time to read movement and activity you don't regret -- mine I think help him out. Look I think that live rat honestly. Really help -- because. Even though they were speaking to a blowing -- we will declining. You know been on the possible people and evidently -- -- well -- they've been duped aimal. Helped him out I get -- very convenient to the golden same way he went that night or may be probably be more. To go. Pedro Martinez and has once again -- good humored joyfully today noon until two regency and outside of prudential. A page or understand that -- -- teach some tricks of the trade when it comes to your changeup to ruby and maybe some other guys with the Red Sox -- got to let me in on the inside a little bit on this. Did you ever have another pitcher in baseball while you're pitching that you trusted enough to help with little tips or tricks or because you were still pitching -- give away any of your secrets. What's it like now if you didn't do that to give away some of your hands to other players. You know I'll always open and and and I know who know the law. I'll always be eaten for it or not hobble quote in the video room looking out -- comparing all the pictures of me. Look at that great pictures speaking. Good game then and like -- pro life I will always be and they're good thing and it felt that indicated in Portland. It Serbia speaking game and and I had to compliment I have always -- -- -- my brain. And I said you know Latin guy. This is what it funny everything you're hearing now from me here. It is what you gonna hear if you -- down with a couple veterans. In the glove out every game that helped you keep your focus and learn. About the game because well we're booking speaking well we're talking sequences well we're talking. Mental approach will always spoken about the game and it keeps you in the game upload -- if welcome. The -- and -- the veteran like it would weakening demand in Portland and to me is very important that I relate. A little bit knowledge tidy I have. When you're playing a little bit me here on the boat guys will like to people. So many things aren't dead in the game. But the mothers do and and and starting rotation normally. You know -- support I'm not signing that day. And only -- in the game looking out of their teammates looking out of their quality -- amount and and look at polluting the make big immediate or. Where Michael league got that out there and I you let me well I'll pull it open to peach. Or social what I have. He is -- that everybody unique indictment that would they morning motive but it we pretend like had it but -- I want to -- and help and the more similar. That you can be you know. To me it make that a quality if community to from a living I known movies. Very similar but not the thing that you lost every element. Trying to improve. He worked the winner we've spent a lot of time over the -- about it that bit of not to ruby. It the biggest problem off the fame over the rover. A little longer and and and and trying not to play open. And also getting in shape pretty -- gain a low weight while -- will you know and they're very. -- recuperating. And it -- partner him the lead up to drop a little bit of weight then and and getting better shape and and now seen like he is putting -- -- You know I'll watch ruby -- beating you see that change if it is it is filthy and he's got the power arm as well but. Is there a third pitch in there you know I see a guy go through that a lot of be faced Detroit it seemed like -- -- to pitch pitcher. That's latter kind of does that have to come around in your opinion. I think he get the job the more. State who grow within breaking up I think it's horrible really good feet -- have then the unit he imam of the latter remark in. And and he won't will that change -- you know more that more than him but -- doubt. It because of the power rose by apple these pop -- look at tale is the remote -- That when you go on nine lead them all out battle. She can get him to be that the next beat value and you'll. And sloppy field the better than he built a breaking -- But he obviously gonna have to use open repeat it and it's gonna need to repeat it in out of our hands topic that invigorate.
