Is -- to pressure got to the team. There's no doubt that. I think he could you could sense over the last few months more planned in the -- the world. And you're expected that one time we when you're in first place going -- September. You can't be our plan -- this now we have nothing to lose attitude we do we had everything to lose. And that pressure. Takes that as a free us away from him when you're expected to perform. The White Sox had a roster filled with post season veterans but also many rookies and pennant race novices were sniffing the playoffs the very first time. It showed in the results. He saw. It you know just. I've seen that had been there in Detroit catching -- it seemed that was trying so hard to get there with a lot of new faces and a lot of machine to do it just didn't quite work out but some. The learning experience for every one of us personally that it is invaluable and they'll be a bigger hunger will -- -- -- desire going into this year and getting in that situation here and the build of a more of a piece and I'm more of not been there I know what's gonna take to get this thing done. Tears you -- on the questions about your health do you think he'd be sitting here today. Having the season you had and now a two year contract going forward in London -- I can honestly tell you that some. Didn't and that's. I'm so thankful so blessed to be sitting here today but I I swear to you one. That happened I had the first surgery. Of that kind. Experience who you covered ground breaking stuff. Nobody really knew what's expects. And then trying to come back there and in the -- latter part of 2011. I'm just not feeling anywhere close to them. Felt in previous years. I really thought that -- -- would be it for me in and out and grind it out. When you saw the contract signed by cranky Edwin Jackson at an -- Sanchez where there's some regrets there. You could've gotten more money there is that I can say this service is on aside there was not that moment because I knew. Do I do those numbers going -- and my guess I don't like out. You know I didn't like oh the White Sox inning but I do feel like that for me personally. I can't seem wise there's unfinished business here and and down. You know I was excited that we can get so something that works for both sides it was a you know a fair number didn't feel like that that you sides. When. Both sides give a little bit I think it -- healthy all worked so well.
