"Two two balls two strikes came into the hands with that one. Well, the first few pitches to care teeny. He was trying to throw the ball inside. And he left it out over the plate even away. And now he's starting to get that release point back inside. And you've got to to count right here. John you pitch them. You got a pitch to throw one pit. I strikeout. Keep the ball down. Maybe get double play out of it as well. Here. It is grab all intellect. Feel the base hit right through the whole between third and short coming into score is Schwab are going to third and holding his Russell and security. He hit a. I think a perfectly hit double play ball. If it had been at somebody. But he hit it right into the whole where nobody was and the cubs have a run and still with the bases loaded and nobody out to one giants and maybe in the regular season. You do see a double play right there. Maybe with the shift. Bumgarner throwing the ball inside Cantina beanpole hitter. You may see Alan Hansen shading toward the whole where you may get a backhand double play ground ball in this case being spring training. And you don't have that information yet, you get the base hit out of goodness. And he bounces a foul back behind the plate strike one another right handed hitter. For the cubs. It's damage control. Now. Bases-loaded nobody out you're just trying to get. Get an out at this point the ball on the ground. Ideally.

The giants ebony to hits against him in six innings. Hansen takes outside and a high of fastball away. Cubs beat Milwaukee. Three nothing tonight. The brewers could've. Virtually tied the cubs first place with a win tonight. But the cubs held them off to now to game in the central for the cubs over Milwaukee, showing Hanson takes up in a way to two and one the cow. Cardinals beat the pirates eleven to five on the Toyota scoreboard. And a fastball is well off the outside Wall Street. So the cardinals remain three and a half out in the tightly bunched central division. Now, the three pitch swing and a foul back to the screen, and he put that on the outside corner in that gray area might have been called a strike meant maybe not who knows. But Hansen is a guy who's. He's a very aggressive hitter up there, especially if it's a fastball. Three into now. Type take any backs away. Evan longoria on deck. Brandon Crawford do up third in the inning three to nothing. The giants are transgender in this game. But the the offense has been missing all night. No wrench two heads. Here's a slack off the inside law for he walked in. I walk in the game. And we'll pause for station by. The.

This done before the start of, the regular season both sides are motivated, to get it done and when the deal is done assuming that they can work it out I would imagine it would make him the highest paid wide receiver in the game because you could dress up a deal to look any way you want in really come down. To the structure the deal and the guarantee Right but the big thing for the giants and for Odell Beckham mystic get that deal done to give him that long term security these sought after that the fellow wide receivers from his draft already have gun Adam Schefter on the six. PM sports, center, last night. Talking. About the Odell Beckham junior contract situation and I've I've read some some reports that people believe this is trending in the right.

To give Odell, a salary That's a total annual average salary less. Than that of Sammy Watkins I'm not just leaving I'm laughing in their. Faces and, then I'm leaving Sammy Watkins is nice player got a contract. From the Kansas City Chiefs last year Sammy Watkins had seventy catches for five hundred ninety three yards he has one account a. One thousand yard season, twenty had a really good year and thirteen games just over one thousand yards, nine, touchdowns nice player but it's Sammy Watkins I think, the Kansas. City Chiefs, overpaid him. And and yet you know to to bring him into the, conversation with, Odell Beckham junior. Who is in the conversation among those. Being the best wide receiver in the NFL that is ludicrous ludicrous and I get it it's a. Negotiation and you gotta start from somewhere and okay so the giants. Up their asking price. I mean I I get, it it's gotta start. From somewhere and you know you're probably gonna low ball the guy I. Mean I, understand but if if our motel Beckham junior Afam Odell Beckham. JR junior's age I'm sitting down I'm trying to get a deal done what would be the highest paid wide receiver in the.

Beckham junior and Sammy Watkins, are not in the, same stratosphere not, even is not even in the same. Conversation. If I'm talking about best wide receivers. In the, NFL, no-one's Mel yes. Sammy Watkins that's not even. A name you, pull out to sound really, really smart. And nothing, against him. Again nice player valuable player you know maybe helps out the, Kansas City, Chiefs this year. But I'm sorry Beckham junior's agent and.

"Four low Duggar takes the walk on base for the first time he also. Has a sacrifice fly in this game well done by Stephen Duggar bases loaded no outs For Alan Hansen Taylor Williams who pitched in yesterday's game threw a. Scoreless inning retired the side. In order needed just ten pitches much different story today for gang throws hard as having a pretty, good year three five one ERA in forty appearances coming in a lot of strikeouts But he has given back to back singles. And now a walked, to load them up with. Nobody out for Alan Hansen Hansen one for three with a single in his game from his stronger side the left side the pitch is fouled tippy swung tipped. A fastball right into the. Mid opinion strike one and for Taylor Williams there was no nuance whatsoever they're huge huges reared back, and threw ninety seven right out over the heart of the play At least this time. He got it by Alan Hansen I'm not sure if he tries it again the same result Would happen here's the oh one, Hanson swings and misses didn't try it again slider. Down and end strike to Burke's Hernandez has come. Out on deck and then the pitcher spot would be do up Johnson used pants and Slater, off the bench already so they only have chased d'arno. And Nick Hundley left to as position players, on the bench These days at least for now playing if player short Oh into the. Pitch to Hanson he swings Squibb's one third, base side it's gonna kick foul almost a.

"Giant-slaying Powrie why? Balder right On going it felt. Fourteenth of. The year welcome back this is Brennan belt at. The, San Francisco Giants now back to the giants postgame, show with. Mardi, Larry six eighty well if you're just getting home or getting out of dinner show or whatever you were doing, tonight or friends houses say what happened in? The, giants, game tonight well fifty six thousand three hundred ten here at the Coliseum giants were down to their last strike down three to two in the top. Of the ninth inning Blake Trianon on the, hill. For the Oakland Athletics they're all star closer and it look like a third. Strike? Slip past Alan Hansen and went to the backstop a wild pitch. He got the first and believe it or not hundred Pence at, a shot down the right field line. That deflected off the first baseman glove and if you know the Coliseum went directly towards. The bench in the bullpen down the right field line everybody's scattered including Mark Milan-San who picked up a chair to get it out of. The way, and, as he did. That Scotty was coming by the. Right fielder. And he sort of collided with a chair a. Little, bit went and got the ball through to the, plate and. Hansen, another mad dash for him around the basis from first base came in and scored the tying run giants had, some chances to do damage after that but? They, couldn't, get the big hit and that has been the story of the first hundred games of this twenty eighteen season so the as eventually get three hits. In a row off Will Smith with two, out. Nobody on three hits in a row and Chapman Pender Jonathan Luke ROY Ended it with a clean shot to. Right center field to end, the game for the as and they walk it off and win it. Four to three in a as Josh said and everyone said very entertaining exciting game but a little bit of a gut wrenching loss for the. Giants if coming back at fighting back and I think it was a microcosm of the whole season of, running trying to get up hill the whole year that sometimes you make progress and you feel. You're you're getting up the hill you get up the hill and then all of a sudden you slipped back and I feel this game was just a microcosm a little picture of what. The two thousand eighteen season has been so far so can the giants pulled together. And go on a run and get ten or twelve or fifteen, solid games like they did in June. Again they're going to have to do it at some point and that's why tonight I. Think was critical game even though doesn't matter in the big scheme of things there's still plenty of games to go it's one as joint. Said, you'd, like, to Build, on that'd be able to to do. Something better with some Mnaya, tomorrow Johnny Cueto And that is the story from the. Calcium tonight Raff. There Josh's referendum damn Ardy? I'm right here yeah what did you think tonight I haven't talked all. Night since, the pre-game, think boy is incredible Crawford I mean you know. He wasn't, doing offensively but defensively look like MVP I, mean he was a, double plays to an innings and you know to The catching those. Those pop, flies we just looked like know he could, do anything out, there Yeah isn't it amazing you know we we say when when, the ball is put on the ground when it's hit on. The ground, that hit, towards him, you just put it in the book and he's so smooth I mean? I mean, he'd like what was it that double play to make it a three to, one I mean, he just grabbed it and he just tossed it like it, was nothing like you know me I'm sure. The ball was like hit really hard to, him but, they didn't even seem like it now and what makes a great player and Josh you. Know this as well is when the money is, on the line when it's the ninth inning and that's when you've got to make the play and it's like a pitcher what makes Murata. Sort, of fun is that he gets into situations where he comes in with runners on. Base now Corey Garin did this last year and. He was awful at giving, up inherited runners that was one of the problems he had this Miranda is just the opposite but he gets you into a situation where you think he's, gonna walk somebody..

"You know again the hasn't been great he. Had his five starts they've all been you. Know credible starts but he sees he's. Feeling for it there's no question, Bumgarner is. Feeling for it, whether it's more off speed stuff being. A little bit more behind an account not quite as dominating as he had been earlier, that is what, he's going through right, now all right let's take let's say Bubba from North Carolina Bubba. You're on kmby are six eighty go. Ahead Hey how's, it going mardi glad to finally. Get. To talk. To you I'm a. Big fan I just I just pretty frustrated, with when you see like how how hard, like Alan Hansen's out there hustling and all the the breaks that the giants really got today and then. You look at, Will Smith just kinda give it up and it's the same thing last Sunday and then Lastly I wanted to show this. Prediction, out there now. Brennan Crawford's going to get another gold glove this year he was hustling yeah he's amazing tonight I mean the two pop ups again as we, talk about the game and I'm glad that to take. The phone, calls eight eight can be are we go through things that happened in the game and again if you're out here just. To see it in, live action watching Crawford go down into the bullpen area in left field and as John said it was sort of like a wide receiver and the other thing, you have to give Crawford a. Lot of, credit because he has to understand in. This, park how much? Fell territory there is and again John listened to. John a lot tonight As John said that Crawford here's a kid and he grew up of course in the foothold foothill high school area. In Pleasanton but he, knows the Coliseum a little bit but he went very very far for that pop up and then the one the center field that Hanson had no chance on, Duggar had no chance on and. Crawford went, out to get that so pretty exciting I like that a lot but that's that's sort of what we we see when Crawford is here Bubba what. Else you got That's it I'm hoping to see a. Little bit more from Duggar this year and. I think that there's just a little bit of magic to this team right now. I've got, a got a pretty good feeling I mean with with? Pants coming, through the way he has and just the hustle I mean how improbable is that for a. Game to be over I mean to. Strike, out and, still make. It the first and the, tents come, through with that hit they've got a. Lot of fighting them yeah you know. It's funny you said, that because, obviously, you know Josh tweeted out that we were gonna do the post game. Show coming up, I retweeted, and said you know we're we're gonna come through and and talk about a lot. Of, this thing and of course you know Twitter, is something, where it's, more negative than positive and a, lot of, the responses well giants can hit giants should be trading everybody. You know and again a very negative kind of connotation but frankly I realized they didn't get the hits when. They needed tonight and that's, been the story of the season is getting that to out hit with, a. Runner in scoring position Changes the game and they've struggled for that all year. Long but you watch these games and you. Watch a game like this and you watch the way they play and they don't. Necessarily beat, themselves in the field although there were a couple of? Plays in, the field tonight that maybe should have been made that weren't but you can't say after watching. Them battle an as team and battle. That, bullpen and, have the. Giants bullpen come in that, that this, team can't compete I mean they can. It's just the question of do they. Never hit or do, you go, through, part of the season struggling for hits and all of a sudden you. Start to hit, at one, time you get a couple of players back so I don't feel tonight honestly I. Don't, feel it was a negative game tonight I, think a, lot happened, when you play one hundred games, you get, to see who you are as a team and I think. As a team this the giants were pretty pretty credible tonight now some things stand out one Bumgarner performance tonight You know, maybe it was over the break did he..

"Pickoff thrown and I think he knew he could, go to third and kinda slowing up he got the third not realizing that the ball. Was still rolling, down by the visiting bullpen over on the sidewalk Man the last couple of days we have just been electrified the base running about enhancing, that ties the game yeah the, giants with Alan Hansen. Coming along you got yourself some speed which is always going to, be in that made me not what it used to be a major league baseball but speed. Always in professional, sports even major league baseball it kills and when you have it, and when, it's used correctly it gets the opposition to. Do crazy, stuff like what have you by did for the cubs so Alan Hansen what he's been able to provide his speed as. In his athleticism his place some of that foul money for the giants I. Mean that's been the, theme of this season along with the reemergence of the giants bullpen and also getting the starters Back healthy but that that run was huge because the giants who as we've seen here. Over the last? Few games leading up to. Where we are now the all star break the Josh is not hitting very well of what we've gotten. Used, to about a month ago here in. The first half of the season that was a two one win a final in eleven innings first game against the cubs at AT and, t. park on Monday July ninth, so that was a. Huge blunder by bye as and a huge bit of athleticism by, Ellen Hansen so that's number two on our list Alan Hansen scoring from first on a pickoff. Throw a three, base error by the cubs on July ninth so that brings us, to number, one numero Uno the top dog on our. Top ten, list of giants highlights from the first half of this twenty eighteen season what is it you'll.

"Throw five six shutout innings every day but you can keep your team in the ball game by putting the ball in play now trying to strike everybody out suarez is figuring out how to pitch and he's figuring out on a pitch quickly he said this after the game over here right now it was a good sign that he pitched okay and he did not have his best stuff definitely helps gives me confidence for sure you know i didn't really have myself and the four walks by keeping that that lineup with just one run definitely says a lot six five o says more in cope's we all know that the giants of winning with pitching and defense but adding speed element is something delightful to see do you remember that play we're we're giving a lot of mad duffy love this remember that play in the two thousand fourteen lcs against the cardinals a passed ball or what might have been a wild pitch by by yati molina and matt duffy scores from second that duffy wasn't even that fast alan hansen gives you this kind of electricity on a pickoff play you better if you're going to try to pick the guy off it better be clean because he might not just go first a second first third the guy came all the way around in scored hell this is the guy who like three weeks ago memory up off of his knee the next day a pinch hit triple eleven seconds home to third base alan hansen is electric joe panic it's going to come back and execute because this kid alan hansen got his batting average up right now he's been swinging the bat pretty well his defense has not been atrocious at one point in yesterday's game he was sitting two eighty four one for four last night he's down to two seventy six but what he does for you on the field you can't coach that stuff and there's nothing there's nothing you can do to replace that element of speed because what it does is it puts a little bit of fear in that pitchers had to pay attention to this guy at first and if i'm going to pick him off it better be clean or this guy can end up end up at third base or as you saw last night coming all the way around to score a run so which one do we just do that we heard from from andy schwartz another one here from bruce bochy because pablo sandoval taco joked about this earlier this this motto for the giants has been all about the motto for this season pardon get distracted looking up in christian yelich hitting balls off the wall the motto for this season as has been really about like i didn't expect gorky surname this was going to help us i didn't expect derek rodriguez to be the guy you've got a bunch of these guys who who last sort of brought in to try to get help from austin slater's been pretty good for you but pablo sandoval the guy who's making eighteen million from the red sox with the giants get to pay minimum wage who who city at other opportunities to go elsewhere and felt like you know i just gotta get back to my roots i gotta go back to where i know i'm going to be happy where i know i'm going to be comfortable he agreed to take on a smaller role of bench role he's literally been able to play just about every position for the giants this year and for the last two days he's been all the offense bruce bocce are not just pablo sandoval but how new patient pablo he's approach with two strikes a waiting for his pitches don't get me wrong south doesn't still swing it slop the three run homer that he hit up into the arcade the other day that was a pitch up at his head and then the two run single hit the other way he gulf that one out of there the right handers batter's box to get a base not even they rbi single last night a low and away pitch that he dug out pablo one of the best bad ball hitters in baseball and one of my best san francisco giants certainly of the last week it's nice to have a guy up there is comfortable to strikes game before he came through with those big to strike hits and he's good ability get the bat on the.

"Lineup bruce bocce set it after the game to look gorgeous fernandez and alan hansen can't be the only guys getting hits for us there was some impressed i mean the way this balls get knocked out of the ballpark here i could not believe the home run hit by that carbon in absolute shot centerfield i was impressed earlier in the season when you had andrew mccutchen flip balls up over the rightfield wall and then second baseman chedda jerko comes in and pops went out and they got this right fielder harrison baiter one of the fastest guys in all of baseball the cardinals are seemed to be trifled with if they can figure out their starting pitching woes they've got this kid nncholas they got another kid tonight sort of an anonymous died going and john gant not very giants faced him though the ones that have a hitting three sixty four against him as a team some of the main guys have faced in belt crawford gorkhas maceachin panic and pence also posey all have at least one at bat against him andrew mccutchen leads the group he's two for three lifetime against his kid john so another outing it's kind of been the story for the giants this you're facing pitchers they have not seen getting dominated by luke weaver did it last night we saw happen down in miami a couple of times we saw it in san diego that kid joey lucchetta newark who then did beat the giants it kinda ran his mouth off about the giants saying i never liked those guys anyway i was in as fan whatever it wasn't he had to say so these no name pitchers who not to say that they're not good pitchers but these no name guys the giants don't have a book on they've been giving the giants a lot of problems this year so something's gotta break something has got to give the giants shade something up i would expect to see maybe a different lineup right out there tonight i wanna see some austin slater and i want to see him in there not just against left handed pitching this kid was ripping the ball down in in sacramento and there's no indicate that this was done as part of a split that he was only facing lefthanded pitching i find that hard to believe that you would bring a guy to the major she was ripping the ball 'success family as he was down in triple a after after not seeing any lefthanded pitching but burst poaching not totally worried about johnny cueto i'm not overly concerned he topped out at ninety two yesterday but i think this is is to be expected he'd made a couple of starts he had it's sixty nine pitches was his hi mark last week when he made his his final rehab appearance down in sacramento so you take the good with the bad here you try to say hey he went out he didn't feel any pain and cueto even said after the game he felt like he was he was pushing it a little bit or trying to be too cute with it he said i didn't feel like i was pitching i felt like i was trying to place the ball in the strike zone as you know that is not pitching that's being careful when you do that oftentimes you give up home runs he missed with the few pitches you gotta find that feeling also it's always a totally different thing moving back to the major league mound from being in the bullpen from being in a different mountain aaa as long as the guest healthy i think the plan for this is if the giants can make a playoff push he would be the number two starter on this team and if you're a pit bumgarner and cueto against any other one two punch and baseball even if we're talking max scherzer stephen strasburg gio gonzalez whoever i'll take my chances with those two guys come postseason tom cubs did not want to go back in two thousand sixteen to see johnny cueto in game five unfortunately the bullpen could not hold onto it so i've okay with johnny cueto i think we were all hoping he was gonna come back in just spin a gem last night but what these are starts at happened in a season you fall down four nothing in the first kind of compiled it and poetry kinda tried to find a silver lining here said hey after he gave up that home run to matt carpenter he'd retired he'd gone to and a third innings of scoreless ball after that before he.

"To strike approach now i was actually gonna do a piece on this i noticed that the the fielders changed physician i guess it was who was it okay so pablo sandoval and out and alan hansen and i forget who was at the plate but somebody must have had a to strike approach because they switched and put alan hansen at stop and put pablo sandoval over in right field and they did it with two strikes so i think that there are things that people can do and then you take the shipped off which strikes that's i've seen that happen to we'll probably see something like that soon i mean we're getting around pretty fast getting back to pitching in the bullpen of course is starting to come alive now we've seen different changes in short men you know do you think will smith and watson are going to be your answers now until milansan takes that role yeah i mean one of the things i really liked best out of a closer late any reliever no baserunners lots of strike outs philosophy it just just keep those bases clean and keep with them so in some ways i rather like moronta but then he has that walk rate and that makes me nervous so i do think that a tandem situation might really work for them i mean they've got a guys will really really excellent against the the hands they're handing us so watson unless a bunch of really talk right are coming up maybe you can mix and match there but they're a bunch of really good relievers in the bullpen so i'm not as raider about you know surely who's got the big c closer role i i think this is a group that can get them to the finish line and i guess kind of as maybe one of our last questions here to kind of obviously you're based here in the bay area and you do follow the local teams at decent more probably than you can look nationally but i know you keep a very wide nationally who are some of your favorite guys right now just in in baseball at the pro level guys that you've really enjoyed watching you know that we were just talking about to strike approach and no mamas ro in texas is a i think almost like a yo young juan gonzalez just really have a lot of power but also is gonna make a lot of contact and without to strike approach is going to have huge rbi total i there's so many i guess walker bueller he's coming right back soon the pitcher down in la i think he's just got excellent stuff relationship curve ball that's really hard to hit just i don't know there's so many players i mean one of the two that i really love talking to the most of the veterans zach ranking enjoyed auto are almost like front office analysts that also play baseball i happen to do it very well so i really enjoyed talking to them about the way the game is played but you know i think that's baseball right now is really exciting young players and i don't think that necessarily i need to spend my time wondering what's wrong with baseball to help everyone see what's right with pets almost so exciting about it and we look forward to you continuing to do so you can find all of those work at the athletic that's the athletic dot com you know thank you so much for joining us today on the hill with bill vita yeah thanks for having me on thanks so much we appreciate your time nice stuff right there i mean some good quality stuff as we go into more analytics of the game alex we talk about it all the time we talk about pitching analytics of all the shifts in how pitchers half to pitch to the shift or where to work and you know back in my day you didn't have too many shifts you had more or less i throw in throw away and the game baseball's definitely be an education to me as an older player and as you as a younger personal learning about the game and good stuff right there you can always learn something new every day and i think baseball is learning more and more every day as it continues to get more knowledge to be had and it's improving there's no doubt about it sorry we're gonna take it back and we'll be right.

"Shuffle because he just doesn't stand out as much he's not as flashy but he might be the better choice at the moment but you also mentioned another guy alan hansen who has played left field he's trying that out play the infield i don't know if he's a guy that you could stick in left field a lot but he's definitely going to get his fair share of chances i think he would get exposed out there what was with all the infield hits tonight for the diamond backs my god it was so frustrating to watch that enfield in arizona that hard in edzard hazard ground would you ask anybody on the giants cody to bunt ever again and the pitching staff the one guy could lay a bunch you'd rather have three you're right about that you're not lying about that i don't know listen i don't want to nitpick that this was a this was a fantastic win tonight care about infield hits or the lack of bunting maybe we'll have that conversation down the road at some other time but two one win of the diamondbacks just huge stein again like i said that the giants find themselves leftfielder and also slick closer and will smith what would you throw out there in left field cody i didn't even hear that from you yet i mean i probably would go right now with slater road the hot hand right what you gotta do and slater right now i think has proved it proved it last year where i think he looked really solid he got hurt so i think he's got to be the guy right now sort of how you're dealing with gorky where just your guy right now yeah and he's earned that spot in until proven otherwise until the guy has a real long slump are really slump those are your guys yeah you're looking for consistency i think going forward and guys who can keep doing it you just roll with that hot hand let's go to aruba now noland talk about the giants hey ruben how's it going guys i'm doing all right man how you doing i'm just kind kinda scared at the end knowing how are got ten at the end but tense i think our main thing is as long as we get the it seems like we are set up guys everything is good but going into that last inning we've been having most of our problems but at the beginning of the year they said our problems with not having power and all that but we've been scoring really good this year well the the problem is it's it's on the road that's what the problem for the giants is it's on the road and how do they handle themselves against big series big series against divisional opponents in the next five games at one in arizona tonight by the next five games to in arizona too in colorado how do they hand themselves can we see this consistency on the road from the giants going forward because that that right there that's their high to their jekyll is there seventeen to twenty six on the road compared to twenty six and fourteen at home now like i said the schedule does favor them going into the allstar break because when they come back home on the fifth they got four against louis at the tough team cubs a tough as well and the top so it's not like you're getting a cakewalk when you come back home but to beat at and t the giants to seem to take advantage of that situation right but i mean if we can at least five hundred or even more that'd be a a really big momentum boosts are going into the allstar break in doubt you know we know we've still got longoria coming back and i was getting excited with mccutchen going pretty good you know have the what five home runs and what was it like five or seven games or something but seem but he's still you know you're still doing good trying to see a little bit more power from him but you know he's he really been helping us like he had the most let's play the parents in the whole being didn't have one home run you know here's what really this this year in his defense is really good but awesome happy tonight devils topping off the couch good yeah you should be jumping off the couch rawson slater like i said i thought it was a statement game by him tonight and will smith in the.

"Environment they ran which is kinda like a video game until they opened the roof i really didn't pick i was watching baseball attendances certainly not even spring training quality which is a shame for baseball and their franchise but it's a major league game it's a major league game to them and they're they're young aggressive and you know i think we got a dose of reality and what we have to navigate that serious giants with brian saving as you talked about twenty four quality starts and not only that it's just the innings you're not getting in so it seems like the the bullpen is is burned out it doesn't seem like there's anything to do with until you get you know guys like some margin cueto get those quality guys back well i don't know the bullpen berko because we we we try to rotate time off for not pitching guys on certain days after they have had a start you know going to the world but it it's safe to say that you know we're we're up there i think we're tied for twelfth probably which isn't where you wanna be in relief appearances you're not going to support that way we really survived really over time with our innings from our starting pitchers in you know the veterans usually anchor that situation right now around out some guys that you know have been around the block to offer and that's going to be you know hit or miss sometimes is there anything to suggest that alan hansen can keep doing what what he's doing he's been phenomenal and i don't know when you look at it i'm sure you look at it differently than when i look at look at his approach in his swings and how those swings look but man he he's been awesome i i'm just curious what are the odds he can continue doing what he's doing well as a right now she's kind of new to the saying which means he's new to everybody else and how they're going to approach him absolutely not afraid and a big moment and being the switch kinda unique has really good some big hits for us and perhaps might be versatile which were were willing to experiment with but he's he's been.
