Talk about the mood of the of the club most of rain the last couple of days because. Last week here in Philadelphia make this big trade to get a great player Carlos Beltran you guys beat them two out of three. And then out of nowhere you lose five games in a row and you lose your -- tiger lead in the division which was four games out of Saturday morning was there a little angst when you guys were dressing today. Knowing you had to get at least one against these guys before they left town. I mean you know it's been a little bit it's been pretty tough field past couple of -- some. He -- don't wanna go five game losing trip like that playing at the same time. We have a great who were guys in the in the in the clubhouse and the ally in the mood you know day in day out so I think they get kind of came in their usual self today and -- -- about this. He's the guy to lighten the mood every day. You're not smile it's you're -- You're smiling. Or you're smiling when you what was your mood like this morning losing five in a row come -- -- go to. The game you know you'd you wings on nine to do last Sunday's you know. We come here do we get to that loss today we did move you know the guy's gonna fly. To win the game you know she lobbed in the golfing kid -- -- more with I think is one of the -- then then they're home stand. First time audience time all you guys revenue score six or more runs at home I'm not sure if you do that but you set. Dubious Major League history and never scored seven Oklahoma this deep into the year now today your 53 game your -- do what you get age. And the line up was shifted today. Tell me about they they shift in the line up to -- you and and Carlos Beltran they moved you up to three. Drop Carlos Beltran down the court deal like that hitting coach we'll continue to do it. You guys -- of the game budget you're seeing outlaw how that -- you know we gonna keep doing it in. Looking good we're gonna keep doing that I you know I start the game. I'm happily that don't know much unless there was what position the line when every you know as of another when we might do my guy in there. I had a chance to interview Carlos Beltran for the first time yesterday -- chronicle live I was blown away by his intelligence the guy is a smart guy. Speaks very well and I know it's kind of taken you under your wing it. Spain a teammate right away telling you to go the other way more you wind up hitting a home run. In Cincinnati going the other way what do -- tell you about your swing right now and I he's roles guys you know be ironically what they're detoured and He is a smart guy great leader you know. You need to bet -- -- -- doesn't listen to live the Q do you do do you know you want no one of the Portland he's you know He got follow you him. He double odd day at the stadium. Everywhere and -- Glad you did beings not doing it you're making his state of the Jamaican as they wouldn't fit to go due to go to right field looked right is the market fell apart the field. -- you got the power to go opposite field you don't need to pull -- such a complete hitter. It was what a week ago today grant the Giants made that the trade. To get Carlos Beltran and there were rumors about everybody you know would it -- Zach Wheeler would it be Gary Brown would it be Brandon belt. Where you'll want and are you one of those guys that gets on the Internet knows that MLB trade rumors dot com to find out if your movement -- you you block all that stuff but just go. Life and love about it yet not at all you know I kind of hurt and stuff and we always gotta wonder what was gonna happen because Jerry Brown. So you know some some guys on the unknown organization up play with a -- at times. So there are good friends of mine. I'm so I was such I don't know because there's a little bit to see if you know who's gonna leave Els won and who's gonna leave and have not talked a little bit for us. Where's that little talk more than it was either you guys to get hear from again but yeah. The saint Thomas does have girls come in you know enough. Diseases so professionally knowing that something that I got a call from the very first time He got into the -- Gaza -- -- was visibly see my you can learn from. It's not about Gary -- I was actually down to San Jose Muni about a week ago a couple of days before the deadline is to check him out Casey was rated it. And I was not a real big guy he's not he's not a good call center fielder. But he's incredibly nasty nose on a run -- He hits for a high average what kind of a Major League player we were going to get guys -- ball right now so we got a ways to go but you've jumped up very quickly what kind of a big league. Playable what Gary Brown be giving credit you know He does all the little things right and I think that's elements were good baseball player you know again he's fast. Create plays good defense He hits for average. He does all the fundamentals right now I think that somebody is so that's the moves and help them go to the system very fast -- discipline helped me be successful last year. On pleases you can expect a very -- and fundamentally sound person somebody who hustles is going to be a very good ballplayer when there. You jumped up very quickly as. Did not have any AAA and went right to the big -- you struggled a little bit then got hurt to -- back to AAA. Did that help you at all to see that level of pitching or is it. Something you can bypass like Randy Crawford never played at AAA now he's playing there hitting guy go right -- double -- the big -- and it -- AAA. You know your -- different. You gotta you -- bunch of guys who maybe sometimes there's stuff in his hands the what you see it doesn't double or maybe you're even the majors and but they can pitch very well and I think that's something they probably need to see because that's what lets them you're gonna get -- well. You -- in triple -- very long we are there no -- get AAA. What -- double play and make let's leave here earlier little. Living proof you don't need AAA had -- not just went there dizzying do my rehab rehab but there yeah. This is is that almost this and here in the big -- -- uncle lesbian around the league you know. Going they're playing very you know he's not indifferent. Between three Blair had big it is you know. I gotta say see out of uniform you look you look magnificent my friend that then yeah I heard guys -- on the radio the Pablo gained his weight back hitting. You haven't you haven't gained a pop back and now. And I still my same way you know -- working that -- -- in the off season. I'm gonna keep doing you know came into my way in their building season so it you -- -- -- you lost what 38 pounds. Is that correct 4242. He's got right down to the house brain you should be proud you lost a lot of weight so you at the same way. Right now the one dejected as Scottsdale back in February gag gag -- double positive for pounds and -- last night stay at that that the way I wanna be in the you know during the season. 245 to two footed to Gaza well wanna be dumb to afford to put forth. So I'm pumped up to grand their home bathroom infield the ball you know -- the game sort of moving good that is the way I wanna be -- last year. Because of the extra weight He did not have the the the bats Davis hit just wouldn't fired. The way I saw you two years ago we didn't have the foot speed. At third base is that something you notice how does losing forty pounds make you the pop a sign of -- -- two years ago. Not satisfied only at the united you don't get on the senate these -- not on I don't looking on the way out of them put him on the off season you know. I didn't know that way. I guess I get a problem -- my hips I'm you know give these years here you know send this in time. I wasn't too close and I can hear like these and I will -- to move my knee did not react to exactly Angels didn't. They all star game we we spoke -- chronicle live live right after the ballgame and you were beaming He had a great -- -- but. -- all the work you put it up climbing up camelback it's what your ass off to lose all that way. It was emotional for you would like to go to Arizona and contribute an all star victory that. To be an all star know how far you came in like six months problem you -- this is. One of those Rincon through you know when you what I was what you now. Run them around town I just went on the outside game and he's gonna beat you know NBV doesn't -- -- -- One of the Rincon through anomaly like not to be MVP one day. And you had your baby girl with yet you're two year old your your pride joy. Down you don't mind me away unionize rather easy you know -- -- Kim Clarke has delivered more. And she's she still unsound got -- for one more week yeah I got a home well more Louisiana status who Bristol Atlanta whom He had to -- for -- through October I had I think you had better when your babies here yeah Cabrera got to look at and I think the corner infield of the Giants for the next fifteen years. You would first do -- there. But everybody's talking about let's hope Pablo the first let's move Hewitt left a movie all around I don't want any of that to happen what are you wanna play. Did you wanna stay at first base if they do -- it a lefty cool with that -- would you prefer to stay at first. You know I'm one of those guys I don't care where they put me as long as I could get on the field. You know let's say I'm definitely better first place I would be in the outfield so I guess in the long going to be better for -- -- -- at first -- the don't know coming out build on solid out there will be a bit about that -- -- -- catch -- -- that's those long like you get out there I'm happy. The baby giraffe. -- -- -- -- -- -- And -- -- goal that came up with baby -- will be able to -- -- -- to -- to catch the ball and riding the kind of looked like a baby it was not I'll bring up right. -- I want it's no longer in the -- -- blue -- had just been born you know political wobbly.
