In the National League average about three point seven runs a game you can also point -- problems in the field. Defensively two of the four least lowest ranked. Defense -- teams in the National League they each had their share of injuries as well. You know as Davey Johnson put it today it really doesn't just boiled down to only one thing. Debt load has has had a problem with his back premature year. We lost our for a month pitching. Guys involved and can get left handers. So fortunate the rotation is. Not really affected the first half for me in -- bench. Had some young players on the bench is -- what you get to play because she rips a line.

Your momentum. -- now not to be all gloom and doom here because like you said they've won three in a row in the feeling good about themselves after that sweep of the Phillies but.
