"It's always been in the back of my mind, but you've got to look at it from a player's standpoint, you really have no control over it. So if a team wants you, they are going to go after you. If you want to go the team, it's going to be fun. So it's just one of those ironic things, I am back here at home for the team I grew up watching. … I remember coming to the games, walking on Eutaw Street, going to the left-field bleachers and trying to catch home runs. So it's pretty surreal that I'm playing for this ballclub."
