I was going on down there that it depends how many guys.
You know I think so in a way they are just -- -- -- How the fans come together and when they when they see them play I really think they they are helping us out a little bit.
-- had a good get a good first half last year and though all the talk around Pittsburgh -- -- you read the post gazette everybody's just afraid of this time not this year it seems like you've got off of complete fundamental team there.
Always do and I you learn from the experiences and then that's the biggest thing for us we've learned from the past and and hello we focus more on what we do right and now we're we're we have some experience on that team and you know it debt fears this fund -- we're doing now and I don't mean things.
The suing for us -- you you you you led the league in hits last year.
And that that was -- trivia answer that I would have missed as an -- -- for one thing what what do you think of this park tomorrow night.

For people who -- -- -- -- college you've already played as many games as you did -- in your tire you know final season is because this stuff.
Via you know that's the thing and then we we had we as players -- for the fires we have to understand that.

The way you go about things but.
The game itself doesn't change and that's the way.
I've been involved with some teams sadly that have had very long losing streaks and you just get into -- -- -- -- sometimes.
If you could never go back twenty years to have a winning season I wonder how much of I wonder how what the level of concern is that you'll just start they -- wrong about things as athletes sometimes there.
Yeah that can happen but you know we think about it.
I haven't been here for twenty years and so I've not been here for four and for me it is something that you learned is an experience that you -- and then you know you want to do better and units -- let's -- you -- -- to do better and you don't.
By -- dwell on the past because that really gets you nowhere and so.
