Incredibly impressed by his. Improvement in his defense from the first day that he got on the field. In Boston to the last day here in Cleveland he. He improved every day. His backhand became. A factor -- we wanted to hit to his backhand he learned to. Make the play coming in much better and you know his his -- speaks words itself -- One spell players that are off speed pitches that he was getting himself out and he made adjustments -- see either taken them quarter you know waiting amendment hitting them wars swinging in fouling them off. And then getting the fastball and doing major damage and so his his improvement. Was has excellent chances like. Are you see guys -- elbow patches or anyway to protect the hands of the -- or so essentially what Joseph yours over. If you know I guess it's such a small thing that he can make a lot of money on it but. That's what should be protected that. Outer part that exposed part of your -- both wrists. We have a little bones which are closest to the plate. Or the disabling injuries I mean the elbow really isn't. You know seldom is that the disabling injury it hurts when you get hit there for sure but.

Has done so well as a starter he's out there tonight three and one last time out to just one run in six innings and he just keeps getting better. Well let's hope that's the case you know his fastball. Is. Has maintained its velocity is is much as any of our starting pitchers and throughout the game. The end his changeup and his curve ball had improved. The more he's pitched so. Hopefully have control the strike zone will be aggressive and it then that fastball. Will be eluding the heads of the -- of the Cleveland Indians. And look at Clay Buchholz last night he's really become mr. reliable and yet. Too bad he can't pitch every day is what do fans don't meet today but. I think he he can stabilize it as that I know that he really helped out the bullpen last night. You know we get other guys contributing the same way in the starting staff I think will be able Lou. Allow our offense to have relaxed at bats and even at bats with leads -- and we'll get a rural. We thank Gaylord Perry's going in the indians' hall of fame did you ever have a chance to swing it is strip all that that's so it's going and its opponent. I guess I was -- -- made his insanity authors. A brief time he's so wonderful guy a was it was great team made in. You know he he he had this to -- also at the puff ball in his first one and remembering Cleveland with. -- puts so much resin and has -- he'd throw a fastball in it. Would he would smoke from the -- and residue as the book about it. Dealers headed a whole bag of tricks. Our Mercedes-Benz question of the day body on a lighter note getting away from injuries. Tell us about your experience trying to get out of Jacobs Field or Progressive Field last night.

The only door that I can get back into was the boiler room because the gates were all locked in the parking lot so. I -- my -- up a few flights of stairs and fell on the door that was open so you get out in the concourses. Rode around the from the third decked out of the first day and then found out that they couldn't get leave. The bull market is there were no hope no X it's available severe it slightly.
