It's not tonight question you know I'm not going to be like well I guess I'm I've never had a chance to talk to about his -- like this is the perfect forum with the face of Major League Baseball. Putting your eyewear to decide. This time of the year -- -- pitchers are way ahead of the hitters so when are you facing live pitching hitting off the machine where where's your swing. Right now -- obviously six weeks away from the start of the year but it went well wishers when it now. Well Luke -- -- all my pitching and obviously a machine off thing. I can a kind of like to get that going earlier than Monica Monica. Mainly in the cage and then -- It -- spring training and then he -- pitching dialect there. I can get down in my eyes swollen and have let their opinion is that -- there. Just a little bit. How much do you buy into your video he says there in the best shape of their life went when you see certain guys in it it who does that does that really. Ring true our guys coming in in the best shape of their life or is it just that you're always in shape now twelve months here. Unlike maybe the way used to be where guys maybe came into spring training to get into shape. Yeah I think a lot of this is that's -- -- but yeah I mean you have most. In this. What your body recovered from the field and really get back to work actually went. No it's not not too strenuous on the body that your you're really young -- at this time and I mean it's understandable residents say that they action and that they have. What what do you work out between now and the time that the actual cactus league schedules stars what is that what is a typical day for you how many hours you on the fielder hitting what what is a typical day this time of the year. I'll probably. That is increasingly on after the ground early you know we'll get our. On the mental and whether it. On these fences. Let me lay it in and we'll do you know. We'll -- -- -- pitching from the pitcher and and just take a regular. Formula DP economic game and you know. That's simply crazy about it they get that straight. You know every psyched about the -- you mentioned it yet really briefly I don't know if you. I gotta get some of these guys would Jim Johnson specifically obvious he was at the Orioles and you've seen him. There's questions who obviously whether he can replace Graham Belfour. What did you see from Jim Johnson he faced them. Yeah I mean in the great competitors that -- any trial want to be out there -- among them I think you governor -- right now for well I mean obviously. Upload on the label for a you know it can be any great. Rates on her hand on our side that. And you jumped in the cage against Kazmir at all yet. I have no idea adventure. Sure in the next week that I would. What's his stuff looked like it is scenic is that obviously the key to him is get their fastball back up and it sounds like it is back is that if you throw the ball hard. Yeah. We faced them last year we -- or maybe question. You know -- -- get you know that's that's all well you're impacting you know he's working. -- pitches and that is.
