-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- As did Justin Pritchard and in this way -- -- so congratulations to the Tigers the dawn. And do what they did in as their kitchen stuff museum itself. But I honestly thought that some crazy might happen out there today in you know we threw a couple of there and we pulled up the DiMarco otherwise yeah. You know go -- -- -- is. You know it's just this is frustrating when you when you're that close. And you feel like you got a taste of it that. Some takes it away from him. And take it on the chin and the thinking gone -- and -- -- Yeah nominee. I was great in that behind us the whole time you -- from the more from the crowd you know. Organization has but to see the Democrats like that -- there again next year because. You know you see how we play when they come out like and we can do some special things in. But we get -- team around together because it's a great teams great core players non. Cannot think does some really special is as you know we went up against -- got the guys this is really tough and and I you can. -- look at the way you look at it that and tonight we got the and we definitely -- the a great pitcher and I get. And I basis. This is frustrating man he circled us. -- I'll keep packing my bag and we get registered Jan. -- Yeah definitely encouraging them and you know you come in here you know it's emotion from office here once -- some games doesn't on the left and have left you -- line those. I was disappointed you know this is disappoint those -- -- different one in. And -- -- and that you're even in really. You know we didn't really compete like you know if you develop that. This year was this was his this is a great team who is you know we we struggled through the first off a little bit. As a whole over the second half men in the thus the -- -- second you know -- That's shows such as the other carriage and relative to come from where we were. And and to get here what we do to get here. And that a lot of fans out there -- a lot of people have seen it and and they definitely believe innocently enough so he just just came down a long game tonight where. Years ago it. And it it. Some -- choice for the team to come back intact I can go out there pitch and do what I can do. -- and -- the choice of the guys -- -- not make those calls. I think he's gonna go out there and give it your best and do and do what you can and Nam. And have that sort of this in the team back out there is a believer that that's a great team great chemistry and and it with a lot of special things this year and I think that we reversed in the situation next year and moving on and on the important.
