I'm glad they are the -- I -- that all of them open or does is. You know I have a lot of things like -- like after our first it is -- yes. Also written me a lot about it -- before. Yeah the city so. You lay it won't win but I mean -- -- any guidance. But it only thrown out because it gets it and -- -- Austria so. Yeah I wouldn't call but I'll let you know. Another important thing about my list it is well so. I -- you wonder how you how you worked on your game in the offseason and coming into the year. We look at you as kind of the guy who was going to be a platoon player and you turn yourself into much more much more than that is there anything you can. I go back to specifically that they got you to this point. I'm. I think the so of course I would not doubt intense -- value. -- Learn -- better idea about. It what my role better than what they overload indeed it Sharon and communications and greatly because at that that would help aid -- nowhere is -- -- -- that role in not feel like. Just don't know what you're gonna. Yet children delivered yet know what they expect it you know let a little Lendl about the player. I think that it that any player especially need selected period routine get rid of it play. It's. We relax. How much of that do you think is is the advances you've made as a ball player how much of that is John Farrell's managing style. Gosh that is probably -- both like -- hated enemy. It's nearly got. Hired he didn't call to let you know I don't know I'm not into doubt and the build out of socialism did it also started not -- is that it's -- the communication. It was the countries have players that bird. The media is to stop it I knew that. -- they're trying to keep her job and if that -- -- -- help -- as far as trying to work about yet but sit in that baseball -- -- -- well both those things. It would be a good spot. Everybody knows you hit a Grand Slam in your first at -- at at Fenway not a lot of people know that. You saw that that pitch because an interviewer suggest to you. That you just look at that first one because you never you only get 11 pitch in the majors you've ever and without interviewer to remember -- I don't know if you know that -- You know we have now I can I do every job -- would encourage me do that but it. John bland brilliant it's -- it strikes it would play I would. Let the body about it until I was trying to get back -- out there that the fact that it. Curve ball companies. Is a good it was nonsense just yet pepper to back you want to get that. Committed battery itself you don't -- like Aaron didn't even thank you media area like Apple's. But when it also expel I would if it doesn't hit. Plain. Old we don't think it happened what sort of get -- Red Sox outfielder Daniel nobilo this year around salt and holly joins us via the AT&T hotline. How good the Red Sox this year. Under as part of that of people forget in I think -- That's scary is that you know it's not like it's just one guy in the lineup it offensively do inside it's just one pitcher in the rotation -- We've got a great you know top to bottom offensively we have a lot of guys distributing. They get prepared to -- the opposite numbers we have this year than. Feel it's your life -- it was pretty much. It's against the spartans but as you patrol I would Spiller out. So it's a trickle also yet but back in you get him back there attrition. I will look at how well we've looked responsible user. They talk about the communication. How it's easier to come into the are coming to work in know what you're gonna do and what's expected -- you. How how -- how does that help you mean I think we. Look at his fans and we salads is great play based on a few playing great if you're not know can't be ready for your opportunity. How to use that to your advantage knowing. You know the night before for example that you're going to be in there. Or how well does that compare the other side when you're not sure you're gonna play so come that he'll read Labor Day. When -- go the night before you know you're all going to eat is it a pitcher's arms but it is not as they. You can check it -- you are -- right out the lyrics well against field. There's but the preparation that you're locked in everything you do your dad says it's great play that night. Compared to -- in the field and just don't know it's a lot of stuff there's a little uneasiness started that I got to sound. Country Google wanted allows you to get that -- -- -- -- you want to be in your routine knowing. About this but hey. It's well -- they had yet to think about. There -- enough -- they think about it stepped up boxing. Guys nine I was in. A little -- once they lots of -- on he -- game. He had a game plan for Felix Hernandez tonight. But that it had little bit. You have the -- you know you get a get a mistake in its sheer force. Wouldn't let targeted you know we all know it but who knows what he's doing -- -- -- so it's a good challenge are -- we'll let you pop -- At first been busy keeps itself -- it -- you got out right now. We get locked -- We know he's a great pitcher that what's the toughest thing about. Face and something that you would only know from from facing them in the box that that we could never. Distinguish on TV. Yes. He got a couple years ago it -- What a power pitcher he really attacked his fastball and now Ronald. Now he's become a pitcher who are at Biloxi but in the lobby group as you can control both sides let -- that need to -- that. That's runs away from the left he. From really well it can also. It the other corner the inside corner and bought this year bill that. And then it was velocity. Of the capital so -- doesn't really make Sheila. I got open. Units in the Middle East as you you can't cover all sides of the plate and -- -- that challenge but that's right but it didn't let in based vestiges. And go out there at the essence here -- -- four games in Seattle starts tonight for the Red Sox part of this ten game road trip to one and two so far. As as part of this ten game trip Daniel not a kind of to take a few minutes we appreciate it man good luck. Arianna thanks -- Daniel Nava and the other Sox.
