It's it's gonna close and other all right. When you say close to have a time table that you'd like to see it happen I know of management might have won what about -- as a player -- do you think you'll be mentally ready to get into this. Elected back before are also very whether that's gonna happen or not I'm not serve I don't know you know. I think that's a that's a good Eagles ultimate argument you make camp how different is this dodger lineup there's no question he's the most awesome. Offensive producer in the National League there's there's no way to get around it's how different are the Dodgers without make him. President and his attitude development in the you know three. Played -- get the best player in this league and -- affects everybody. We've done really well of of playing good baseball has been -- -- a lot of guys. I've done really well -- but sooner or later. Syria and Israel there and it -- to go back. Don't miss their two hole hitter as well 12211 with you in the lineup it was working he was what do you like about this dodger situation would fit when the season started. All do their thing you know comfortable hitting to we'll just you know my only goes beyond this you know just do -- -- on the on this in the met up there and you're renowned ballpark. Doing again you know and everything works a lot better interviews on first base and get on second base is -- -- -- and third you know so just got to simplify everything and not try to do too much and just going to be who I am a little bit more. -- had an incredible start of the season best team in baseball. The -- started to catch you guys just a little bit more how much do you guys look at the standings and look behind you see where teams are right now because that. The Giants are coming and the Diamondbacks aren't that far behind. I'm not very much so it -- you know we were about ourselves and we were about playing good baseball and a good team I've ever been on him. Don't you don't know about you don't think about the other teams you know you go out there and play and -- viewer about pitching well everybody don't get him on January about you know journey around to get big hits so. We don't worry about them a whole lot we know it's -- close -- -- -- and we got a good start you know and you know it's going to be a closer is just in all of us this kind of -- -- an analyst and notes in is that much better than military they're gonna pull away notes in his -- amateurs -- -- -- far -- so we -- some clothes and we're ready for -- you know kind of expected it. And the -- case is always opening guy getting Clayton Kershaw going on the -- goes on the bump tonight while he what do you what is it like to play behind him is that one of those were you guys can relax a little more than. I mean this guy is as good as it gets as far as left handers on the you know. He's good you know he's very good and it's and it's a real luxury to have smell like ten to two out there and if you lose double game zero. Yeah I like him out there realistically come out there so his. His policies. Is Smart he knows he gets it you know as those guys is kind of gets it and but -- is very you know did you come zone. Then the -- works quick and you know we always. Because until has physicals and you know it just looks closely held them.

So you get those -- routes and I know that now there's there's a transition going with them and they've got young guys coming up but also they have some questions off the field where they're gonna be if they're gonna. -- get a new stadium or not but. That won't give stance and -- -- -- as an eighties background.
