Just salary -- you know we wanted to stay in big time and get back to. San Francisco but it just. Just didn't happen the balls were just out of reach source -- double plays from. Yeah I'm proud of the team might troll now a little while ago they've they've come a long ways with this team. And then they played their hearts out enough. -- -- -- body that fans called for you and I can't. The fans called for you this while the Giants were out on the field and then the Giants paid their respects can you describe that. I was myself one. These fans have been great they've packed this place just about you know the last. I politics and and we appreciate their support I do. And the players and I have fought through my career here they've been does absolutely. Great. And Bobby did. What I -- how aware were you of the giants' players all saluting here at the I saw him I gave them. Thumbs up to -- they played good tough them very good pitching and you know we had to run there in the eighth inning it was right at renteria from anywhere else we're first and third team. And real good shape to get back him up and down. We just couldn't have now. -- that was my -- on a nice gesture by them the Giants I'd Love Boat chief he's on the best guys some baseball and if we couldn't win I'm glad he did. I am treating you said that you weren't even really focusing on the fact that this could be your last game. Now that the game is over how -- you feeling. Like I said we want to win this game and it.
