You know one of those games split on the net. I felt good until -- -- going confident enough that's a good little lineup those guys are very crafty it'd be gain on a hit and who's trying to make them put won't play. It's a mental improvement you know. First inning I had to. Get all the Dallas and try to communal. 2000 wrong counseling in light until in this kind of like king on the right now like mentally where I just don't know. Kind of like spiral out of control and knows -- -- you know he calmed down and took a minute -- time and -- relax go out there and -- on the strike zone. Don't think about the outcome on this net to score a parent and you're doing your job. And that's exactly what happened was. And developed a close and he had confidence in these team that confidence in the and we're going out there continue to pound the strike zone. -- I do I'd I'd think to dallas'. He has the same kind of like. Approach mentally to the game where yeah he knows how to tolerate he kind of figured it out himself and kind of tunnel below. His anger had taken on the ball and you know and admit. And that's -- work on developing trying to do the same thing is to have. Operating round showing my emotions are like totally it and try to put in the baseball -- baseball do the talking and mountain and the defense came in daytime and a little bunch of plays that we came out there and got ground ball outs. Everybody moving today those exciting and I guess you know you're one of those days where. You gotta get out of Lleyton isn't -- -- It's it could be that could deal solo of the time into the hands.

Condit have his -- -- -- And their ridiculous he's in now and let down on all spring training as -- and I was an experiment. Where we all went together -- started trying to -- and -- we can do learn some -- pitches trying to -- on location mechanics. Everything deposit they don't look for me it was more like fundamental approach. To get ready for the season. And my currently visiting team this game was kind of minimize damage. Try to keep our team as long as they can in the game. You. You gotta finish strong. And showed you out there as soon as I note you've got to always finish strong. And on the bullpen -- good they look sharp. But I. I think warning that rely on them a lot this year and we're excited. Where they're gonna go out there and try to get this -- 123. And Sasha and you know for us.
