It must have really thought through the groove yeah. Darwin Day. Two. I think he had about 850 feet home runs and I think that the that the birds first one was the that it was a changeup over the middle next Melissa left a little bit in wasn't yeah. They've. And yet the triple off the wall right sanctity that was going out to naught but it didn't catch it just about not have a copilot do so. I think he's there on the field well yet they are opposite field home run over the past keep phobia that I haven't that stupid. And we're gonna you know I definitely hit back backlash a funny thing too is that I don't know people realized I think you only have three home runs to the writer's second base is not right. You know without the far right the fifth at. We know you're only the second Red Sox player ever 20/20 season home runs and stolen bases. And the first ever to do it back to back two years in this. That's great combination of pirates may yet feel good about that gap in. To let's. In the. Look at what is it upon hitting when it can be contagious like it was starting in the news in the second inning. I really don't look like the shop was set up first and second nobody out in the first in the and then in the second inning all of a sudden things just started to go what is it about their hitting being contagious sometimes.

That's called the Bernie. That's called the burning man ever for a and but Joseph doesn't sometimes between innings the right that this that just to keep loses I think. But congratulations boo yeah that was agreed that a lot of fun to watch I think. Right we'll keep that last that we talked to be used times in 1980 Kiki.
