Welcome back Mike -- the bulldogs the blue jays are home to the Red Sox this weekend in the very tight. AL east elite in an at least June 1 three games first the last that's got to be a first Olympic. Since even with all the out the five teams. In those divisions which has been true for awhile dispersed for the last 3 games apart both eastern division not a first it's super. So it's like starting over almost. For those teams here with two months already gone in the season Bulldog how do you feel about -- set. -- -- Yeah I I feel you know excited BM you know it as as -- porous -- -- start of the season as the Red -- -- there are still in the -- I think -- great -- with all the -- -- and trials in the middle of it and that's good for us I think could be your support them so lac. You don't -- it. -- -- I like I like your -- with you know with -- body about Baltimore. I don't -- an alliance by -- know it could I guess but I decided I'd be surprised that they did. My my friend and I put our friend and I actually put. A little friendly wager on. But my side of it is the Baltimore we'll finish last and we did this last week. So -- hasn't gone well for him. Since we made that -- -- that agreement swept up and I don't think you lost maybe that. Six of seven is that those archaic astute when injury. -- is this better -- I don't know I -- I hear you loud and clear key guys got me okay. Yes we do indeed we we we after the initial question here was about dumb you don't two months into the season and really it's still loved still anybody's anybody's game. Well of course the law as they just let you guys talk about it is the top of division I baseball we're very well aware about what but yankees and typically does the out. Obviously the Red Sox -- rays but you know we continuity we should get about what can we haven't really hit our stride we we warned several games several -- being put you know we're back and support them. Are we over the salon called but if you look at it right now on June the first would like to position or and we like what the future -- force. As a first base coach Torre. Tell us what. Basically you're your job consists of we received on the field you know what what is the first base coach do. You know teams and outside games. I'll get back coach -- -- -- really loud get five guys around that round a base for basic. Actually no I tried that tried did -- take it to a whole different level I know what some -- helping things that I god just said to me when I was a player first base and I just want to give them a general understanding of what set up ahead of them such as that -- remove the catcher pop times. A different setup differently I think infielders and also there's just a little -- need to watch during the course began to pick up on a ten year habit. The kid didn't give us an edge on the basis our motto here is you never be under prepared. And trying get ninety feet really advanced ninety feet nine hit that runner from first second base and get them -- -- short course virtual earned the so bottom line is just about paid attention you know more on what's going on and in front of me in real money not the bass tracker. How much time would you say you spend looking at. May be in advance of a series beginning. The opposing pitchers moves to first base. -- a great question you know well for example I just spent probably -- -- hour 45 minutes. Looking overall the -- Red Sox pitchers lose and so we have some great video people that I give me some great footage of Eric contrasts with. Over laid them on one another telling guys are going to be trying over before they're gonna be -- -- -- -- Other tricks we have the not a College Baseball teams do it now -- to take over the time and effort from the Gartner study -- -- say it football and Freddie and in -- -- on means getting into the field early in and watching that video and be prepared. Is that something you go over with. Everybody that's gonna be on the bases are just the guys who might be inclined. Be looking to swiped a bag -- Well yeah that's really good question I'm pretty impressed by -- I would say there. We have a free you know pre series meetings that I go over very generally you know we have peace dealer -- some address -- that everybody. We have a lot of criteria a lot of different guidelines there to help guys -- can't steal some bases and the second part of the meeting as a base stealing the ability to -- the guys that are ruled out surely you know. The green go guys will recall that saw me -- them. One on one won't go over some video some of the more dynamic stuff that they can pay attention to give just a little bit Mormon Church. The response I wanted to. Blurred out the sarcastic response -- to blurt out so good these questions are is full story we are in America -- I won't do that I will not that it's horrible I love Toronto and I'm glad that we have this connection with the. Oh no let it up Bible say that you know it's I feel like two years maybe the first base -- undervalued. And -- -- -- -- it and I'm trying to bring a whole new top process our base runners were trying to change the dynamics of how they can go there and through it and they cannot go. Could -- that -- although there are working that would actually goes auto that I appreciate that. -- what's your background with your manager if there is one beyond this Toronto job of course he has buffalo ties to. Do you -- fairly high what would we worked for the creative menus during their time there and into in buffalo and so John and our work friend -- the players are prior to -- -- looking good for the Cleveland Indians in the minor league we. You know we got to know one another and then it just -- by a look at that we -- work together for so many years mark Powell put together a good group of people and -- look for Johnny is my -- -- was here but. And a guy a great leader. Great presence. A guy that -- everybody who want to do their jobs and there's nothing better than not you know when you're micromanagement. Like the weight of the world that. Though watching every minute of the day it -- -- to work to work -- -- -- creates an outstanding all the coaches all players do their job and expressed themselves I'm still. He was -- with us in spring training and I I like -- the sort of the new math of baseball and I guess Ferrell is very good reviews in this way. For next player and I wonder about the the personality. Of your team has won one other thing about -- -- he seems very serious. A lot of a lot of the time but you know -- is so he comes off at least is obviously is very young and -- a lot of energy that is as much as you've been around baseball would you. Characterize the the personality of this year's -- Well I. Bulgaria beat and energetic and you know John is -- very seriously -- watching locker get the most out of his players but behind the scenes. He's also got to communicate in in in gonna get to -- the players and we're still trying to develop a little bit of a face here so to -- in -- worst sort trying to. Get the right piece didn't work well we're really really close we feel like we can we can you know make some noise in the division and were right there but. You know -- it's hard to say what type of personality that he compliment just a -- they're saying they wouldn't give a 100% a little we have on every given night. Trying to take advantage of every situation possible square London when -- ball -- Scarlet torrent of although he's currently at first base coach -- the Toronto Blue Jays longtime buys in buffalo baseball Kramer by the way if you want it. -- you mentioned you know the tough division. You know lost in in in new York and and Tampa lately. Baltimore had a great start as well. Com it's all about look at a team. You guys have to and I remember asking a similar question to your manager. And that's retaining training conversation might get a mention do you think your guys. Believe they could be the best team in the division considering the reputations of a couple of other of the heavy hitters yeah. You know great question without a doubt I know from pocket these guys and in dealing with Simon. Being around him every single day they have a passion to go out there when he. We're not overlooking all. All the heavy lifting that we have to do between now and that time. We respect our opposition. But I know for a fact that so we feel like the pieces -- replacing lead -- competing this day by day. And you know Leo well first of each month we can look up and just say look we're right in effect this thing. And now we can make one strong push to get over the top I think we're going to be able to get that job done I know that the guys believe it. It's nothing that we talked about. You know external -- I think internally we believe very strongly that we're right where we should be. And we can get on Iran as we get some of our summer guys go on. We feel like we can make great push and in output -- so the position to say it's obvious at first the morale clock and not make some special -- and. I mean we shouldn't focus much on the division title and that be great but there's an extra wildcard this year to -- next got to be in the podium. Yeah I -- I know everybody puts a lot into that. And we utility HIV yet one more team in there you you'd better chance in you know you look at the east last year would have been. Palestinian about the two or three of the five teams in the sort of would have made it so. He would say the east is going to be very -- we know the entire American League is very competitive we don't want to cart. For the horse but you know there's going to be one knock out game between two. Between two wildcard in and we can get there would be great but that's really not our goal our goal thought there and I'd be one of the three top team to win the division. By the way do you like that move baseball made. I do I really do I think it's such. Such a long season and you hate to have somebody come up one game short and you know it. Now what's gonna happen you're gonna say that there should be -- 600 of the call it's inevitable that it's gonna keep the law without labor. I feel like the knock out game that's gonna put pressure on the division winners to blog -- in the division -- can remember last year. Boston are our New York is that they were in. You know Boston and Tampa Bay were kind of jockey in and that just really didn't matter how -- position that was all kind of laid out for New York they're gonna play -- Are -- to be a little bit different trickled down and into the wild card area and so. To win the division it's gonna -- keep the other knock out game and I like I do a lot. I like yeah I'm I'm for that be the year before when the Yankees were. Playing Tampa and it both teams were -- playing each other and it was like a walk through. Those -- I wanna avoid that so. Ryan I think you know -- gear up toward the last couple weeks of the season you weren't playing here -- based on experience and you know we gonna be playing for the last 45 is just doesn't make sense I think everything should gear up for a are playing their best baseball. In this either. Real quick is Ernie talk I'm amongst the players today in the coaches about Vladimir Guerrero. Well I think when he first sign -- legal excited that the views in the mix and he is wonderful. You know quote from a coach just important we know the group that we have a great. A great. Potential and bloody coming here. Which is a matter of him getting help -- we hear great reports is swinging the bat very very well. We know it is is exceptional leadership quality so. No no it's up to him. Whether he played well enough -- bodies will not -- he's gonna let us know what it's the right time of the year that's a possibility. We could certainly use that type guy in the in this sort and they are in the side and -- Two home runs last night I guess is going to Las Vegas that are detailed recognize. Thought it yeah I feel that you guys are a little bit you're it has -- haven't studied in the video to the path to start trying to interfere at all but no bias. Are sort out who exceptional -- they've got to probably great plan. And they're gonna figure out what's best for him and that's what we need. Thanks this story to questions for us. How are the they -- gonna make it well trickster who knows your wife is a big savers and. Oh my god do not see this is like one of the all time saver and fancy meeting you -- -- I'm from LA like anyone -- and she. She forgot about it this. She told me if I ever go due to a Toronto game. While at the sabres are not playing out here to Air Canada Centre that she's out so I got a hold -- like you're going to see the big game where security gains at the problem like to do -- analysts that they were being so.
