8.17: NY/OAK Postgame- Bob Geren
A's Manager Bob Geren was a happy skipper after his A's shut out the New York Yankees on Monday night.
I showed -- the Yankees tonight. Pretty good job there by. Obviously Brett Tomko in the bullpen you know super job Bailey's been terrific all year. -- did -- nice job Breslow is another multi innings that's. Three of its last four is had to had to do that does a great job for us. Was 78 pitches at about -- looking for in terms of a pitch count Tom go to I was looking for seven iron there. -- last start was three innings 55 so we know we're gonna take from another fifteen to twenty. Range and you know we had a chance to get through five and the further he went. Obviously less outs had to get operable so. I was right about or wanted to do with him and he got through five so super job for him he earned the win against the Yankees did you. It's going to be a big confidence booster for his next start because he hadn't started prior this since may of 2008. He's been around those guys for a lot of teams available please. He's in a very experienced so to him this is just kind of -- another opportunity after being in the minor -- for awhile so came in with a great attitude like. It's gonna go forward you do get him once again Raj Davis the catalyst to something here and talk about the decision -- hadn't steal third there. Well I've given it more more flexibility as he's earned it and you know he's making good decisions on his -- and I like. How we do you know the I was actually pretty quick to the plate but. Kind of moved to Seattle after he looked in and he didn't look back again so he gets momentum. And stealing -- Mormon are stealing second to encourage users your speed. Stealing there is little -- little more. Difficult learn what -- learned -- some of the better basis it's actually easier but. Takes a while to learn that. -- too low and answers are Jericho.
