"To me, I'm still in the baseball inner circles. I still talk to all the people. All the guys who I've talked to that have asked me before or have wondered what I was thinking about, they know who I am. They know what I know about baseball. If somebody thinks I'm right for the process, then I'll listen to it, and if they ask me to go through the process, I'd be inclined to consider that. But I'm not lobbying. I'm not using the media to say, 'Hey, baseball world, I'm ready.' I've never done that."
