It might want to you can't Majorly to the very young age you know what rock fields going through right now how hard is it. To make that jump the way you do it the way he's done what's the hardest thing for him to adjusted. But I don't know about that just. Didn't play a lot. I that if element for us it's of these guys have a different situation him enough minutes and you have minutes and came up. These guys played when they when they came up you know Ripley regularly. I had miserable sector that's even to issuers like analysts like. Get about it if it's abroad gain organs and left the summit that I'll play you know but these guys have been playing well since they came up. Playoffs going to be a whole different story hopefully make it. That's going to be different with. You can't reach the a lot of pressure that's no you know you gotta win so it. Try to make less mistakes as possible and I mean he should you are twenty to anyone because of age you gotta. You got to applaud their performance of team.

But you know what was your approach collect that debt that not your. Our rookie here in time if you're a young kid in years in that on that big stage in a clinching game what was your approach. A terrible my arm to irrigated ought to go ahead on the bubble have a gulf war. Soil and when he was a good really tell us that watched the game was pretty close Arnold through winning the rules in my one on a somewhere that but. A disputed get on base you know sitting down and order. The focus of that line about Coca tells me on and and and and PDF and those guys the pick up again which was on base. Communicated via hold the football game wants those cuts puts things on this but you know when their track record in playoffs.

He's quick view army's seven Somalia this year as he sees you quick on the mile. Yes the balls full strikes strikes strikes strikes likes Billy walks guys. Me as an opponent against him he was a bit tough to tough pitcher to face a few days ago that in. He got to face him it was an easy task to do.
