"I'll probably have more in the next day or two when I think more about this and move forward. I just really enjoyed my time there and want everyone, the fans included, to know just how special my time with the Orioles was. Some of those guys are my best friends and I'll keep in close contact with a lot of them. There were a lot of good staff members that have helped me a lot and I will always be thankful. When my career is over, I'll always look back on Baltimore, on the people I met and the knowledge I acquired."
