Meaning you. He would probably tell you -- -- he expected us to play better last year did you. Yeah of course I think when. And enjoy any team you expect certain things and you know I don't think that we were able to get to. The team I did the I don't think we were able to. Have powerful lineup then I don't think we -- able to. Have a leadership in place I think a lot of things. Didn't really fall in place last year but I think. If we can. Come this season and take what we had the last month of the season the leadership that we had last month. The team identity that we had in. Continue today even though there was an offseason in between. I think we should be part where we need to be. One of the big areas of weakness last year was bullpen eighth inning in particular. This team lose thirteen lead in the eighth inning. With that in mind how big of an addition as Mike Adams. What do you think -- a huge addition his. One of the best in that role and for a long time. You know knowing him it Durban some of the guys that think. I think -- it is our honorable thing gifts you know decided who's going to be -- it is going to be. It's going to be doing this year.
