Brandon Inge downstairs and Brandon thanks for stopping by you've been with DH for six games they've won four. So we think you're the good luck charm how much have you enjoyed. The short time you've been with the athletics. -- You know get an opportunity to come play every day that's what we're looking for for a while now and this group of guys. -- -- that's fun and easy to -- join the team plays though. Tom Watson to the fifth but to me don't plan plays it's things that I left that. Pretty good -- have a good point about getting a chance to play. You had an opportunity go to a number of different laws because no doubt you're services were what it why did you pick the -- well. I'm very comfortable with Bob Melvin as a as a manager. Played underneath him and I 2002001. When he was with folklore so very comfortable with my love the way he he was around guys he can relate that one so. Yeah I mean that was gonna be easy to get fit and guys are just being over there based on my third against him times you can just tell the atmosphere. It's amazing win against him until the atmosphere with coaching staff does and another young ballclub but. They've played well against Detroit for many years now so I was looking forward to come home be a part of them. Like just a brand of let's get to today's game you guys are down for nothing -- that you -- back let's get your home run -- talk mr. -- it was it was clearly. The -- daughter but it also comes against guys get really good stuff. But he was struggling a little with the. It looks like Carlo last couple games over and really trying to search and get myself together and you know a missed a few balls my floor and thought I just got -- T Dixon try to make adjustments that you and I were talking about. Trying to nothing too much applause now let's let the -- that I have taken over that -- muscle a little bit more ladies dispute you know. Barely over the fence still counts and -- -- and Helio and I have found it through the walls. Other than some would have gone to the law and you know you you came within a bad call a first down and a perfect day. Yeah no doubt you were safe shot but your manager did a good job you -- -- game minute longer. But from your standpoint we know you can hit when you get a chance to play every day how much has that effect in the past when you've been over the Tigers. When you've not played as well because you've been either sick you've been injured but now all of a sudden you get that group with the ball club knowing you've got to be in -- to play every day. He had a chance to hit. Mean the biggest difference from -- for me anyway just as. My whole career my whole life I've played every inning every game nicest way I go about business I'd rather do that part time players there they're special I think what it's it's hard to do that you know sporadic at bats here and there. And I wasn't used to it in my heart really wasn't into it either to be a part time I wanna be in there every day so. Being able to get it back and then now every -- -- feel comfortable getting in more rhythm I guess you saw the guys and you know letting go from there so. -- what you do the next 48 hours you have not been with the gaze back in Oakland yet your new home you have an off -- -- are you gonna you go somewhere it is to pick up some closer what what are you going to be doing tomorrow compact. Apart from the closes but had a mind you look for a place live. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They'll use that -- just your take up scenery. Oh you'll love it it's it's a wonderful area to live so you'll enjoy it and a nice job today thanks and we're glad you with the athletic things we do.
