Now for the Brewers the Brewers bullpen catcher and a genuine good guy Marcus handle Marcus played on. Her Guerrero or you're did you have your pushed you today you know it by the way are you here are you out in Arizona. Are or your third reward okay so you guys have pitchers catchers everybody reporting on Friday we start the workouts on Saturday. Our question for us as the bullpen goes because. He really knows what the Brewers have right now specifically in the bullpen which caught a lot of these guys that are still here. Give me your thoughts on what the Brewers have right now on the bullpen. Well up yet. I'll be out so what's it like question marks which there are are much bigger keys to this year is going to be that helpful Jim Anderson and former. We don't they did when their LP. That's just gonna give this big barrier down there and people couldn't. I've got you back up Broxton yet will Smith and chuck person and your heart so. There's places barrier that sire quietly over signed Perez so another guy who's got a track record in the a big league. Established guy so. You know it's always seem like they're Balkan kind of gets slick. Neglected oh opener. And all the years you know being in the bowl yeah. Going into spring training like you can't always get a map this you know Baum and then you know he's still record Dan Kolb becomes a closer Reseda. John Baxter for become closer dirt Turbo became a poser rare of Solomon or. 08 you know also are you guys just seem to step up our equipment situations that they're doing well all over do so with this group of guys. You look at Zach Duke was able to do when he was put those situations in the yard repeal the White Sox all just there haven't been here. We'd like competition so competition committee is all the lot of success. Now you were sick now mad bull pen last year watching everything kind of collapses you know it is it went down I mean as a guy that. It because people understand you're the bullpen catcher that's what you do it's kind of like being a coach. And you're out there working well those guys you really don't get a chance to field other than the fact that. You know you throw batting practice every now and then hang out these guys on a daily basis what was it like watching that collapse from beyond the outfield fence. Oh difficult there's nothing you can group. Restart talker guys try to be positive with the guys. You know or in the year you know whatever you did just. Then you gotta win. No matter what you try to fit into the year it was very difficult to see everything slip. And slip and slip so you know there. Guy in my position in the coaching staff to do what you can on the Q are encouraging these guys and what mattered or furcal goes to sit back into the open support. Now you've got the baseball camp and everything down and were seen in in I know you live in the area I know you stay here and you appeared as much as anybody. There's this almost cautionary optimism out of Brewers fans this year because people are saying what what do they do what were awarded the upgrade weren't weren't word we get better. So it is a guy that's a part of that team going into this season how do you answer that. Or thinks of them Duke in the offseason that world moves made but Predators a couple of moves made during the season noted get Broxton. You got Chara who vote getter for all ciller's they're there in extra there interchangeable. On par of people globe winner. Read you win games with his glove are also is back so I think that's gonna give looks. A lot of help you know in the days maybe go overseas to break jerked to a stated sir you brought it all America lose anything for Oriole those kind of games that you control of merit so they've got some great help. I got a first baseman. Bettered your first baseman. Michael and other old historic give us so well more stability over there. It does hurt your used. The loose Gaidar told which are open and the situation that you got some upside of these young pitchers. And with that I know. The end of the year awards very disappointing but it can look at those five months or Alou or first place and so it's kind of weird things good look at things like they are right now. Eric premieres at third base your overall start short. They're given scooters more at bats and open Ryan brought it will be fine and all those kind of stinks. If that happens then though the team that was in first place for five months. So you know I know he won like rip. You apart people do or go to du Luxembourg it's pretty good team we have a lot. So when you look at you've got 56 all stars that are on this team and a guy last year that we had a shot at winning an MVP and that was in Johnson Lou Croix. So I guess my question to you then would be where does the optimism why is it just a matter of you hope that each guy plays and to their potential that's it it's that simple. Well I mean I got to hope or to a Reynard to track are these guys have put up numbers. And I just think and the new year we for whatever reason. Years ago tailspin elect Barack. And there's creep up all Rolen again you know we're doing what some injuries at all you still thought it was kind of middle lineup you don't bet. On the injury. We know we know now that Luke had that hamstring injuries stuff like that so. It's look at the last month or production offensively. You know for a team that's built for Miller Park. And we never put up big numbers you look at it and Matt Clark clerical team in home runs LaMont to ever. You know when you have ovals big boy so he received that yeah you know there's guys can do it these guys are on bunch all calmer and older mature on the short collecting yourself to go out there. Umbrella rated Eagles. When this division and in particular stepped through. Talk LaMarcus handle the bullpen catcher for the Milwaukee Brewers when last year we were down there there was so much being made about the comfort in the clubhouse about a lot of these guys feeling good. This year is there a pressure coming into this year because of the collapse last year or you expected to beat. Just as good if not better than it was last year because you have had a guy like you know Ricky he's departed he's gone now. You know you've got a couple players like you would mention that aren't here anymore could Doug you don't have K rod here not as of right now anyway. He's another guy that a lot of guys like it is it gonna be different. Our newspapers and they'll do I think the guys. Locker room well I'll assume they have a great. Group of guys are great chemistry but. I do think with the way the season ended last sugar beard different purpose to start out this season. And I don't know could be added pressure or. Apparently can't get to the rights. I certainly hope that it will be countless freedom like hearing that sister back to playing ball all soak Obama hope. That is secure its. But I could feel like you guys you know like it's yards compared weird statistic right and over not putting pressure so. You guys were in first place from 150 games and then everything fell apart. Which team is closer to the real deal is that the team that we watched struggle cursed the team that we watch say in the month of manages lit the world on fire. Prepared it honestly I think we're a team that was somewhat more in between. Tom I don't know we're totally that team that went nineteen and four. Brodeur not thirteen for nineteen. Are just too much talent on there and hum I think. Beginning you know what your score became that Rasheed and so poorly earlier. Big sort of attention the commodity it's early lecture which we did. And we just to maintain their but I do think last year were team that was dirty look earlier this season was go where I mean a we were kind of walk a little higher than what we were. Like in the middle there I mean our I mean. We were thirteen now at 94 we're definitely a peculiar or nineteenth on board should minutes inertial all Al Bonser last month structure. And now they come out with theme nights by the way I don't know if you saw this today were may thirtieth this Star Wars night.
