Tired, but ready to relax and then play ball
I had to come here to talk to the media. Otherwise, I would have gone to the beach, it’s such a gorgeous day out. I think today I’m going to take the time to be with the family, go to the beach later on, relax and come back full throttle.
That’s the plan — just kind of lay low and relax, just enjoy the day. And I said this when I woke up, “Wow, today’s going to be so chill; it’s going to be such a great day.” So I’m going to do what I like to do, maybe read a little bit.
You should see everybody around here has got a little smirk or a smile on their face, which is a great thing. It’s just great, because our overall sense is, “Man, it’s just good to be here right now.” To be able to get to this point, we are ecstatic that we are still talking baseball on Oct. 18!
So we are never going to lose sight of that.
I am just so happy that I can sit here and talk to you about, “Oh, we got a game next Saturday” or “Oh, this happened.” I’m just glad I’m not home in Orlando watching somebody else do it. I’m actually part of it right now.
So we are all very grateful to be in this position, and I think that’s where our focus is — just going along for the ride.
We are confident and we want to go all the way, so we are enjoying every moment as it comes, trying to be very present and not let all this breeze by us.
Everybody’s really, really taking the time to enjoy every second that we spend in October. And hopefully we can be the last team standing.
