Airplane time to adjust to life after baseball a 32 year old retiree life design is pretty good Matt when did you know. But you're gonna hang up at the end of the season.

I just register or to get that time more like need to be more executed in our on Chelsea and I just knew that. Even for much so that it was. You know becoming. Locked up at my body in the position that it could be. To perform where you'd be trying to be as consistent as needed to be in. You know Caruso a guy gets credit as the season was going into it. But really. You know toward the industries and and etiquette is it was more meat exit mustered the courage. You know talking erratic body votes of everybody today eagle at doses.

What kind of night's sleep did you get the night before. You know what I actually it was not too bad I think there was just so much build up. A within the week before and that week that I Lewis. A pretty I was I was I was excited to be able to get resting trouble early in the forehead.

In a tough spot again -- see this organization. As it's it's now heading into the into the next year in the first year without you on the squad. I you know what I think I think there are right and elbit. You look at number like the salutes it's pretty. Pretty bad for a lot of the guys it is just. It never gonna go right for some reason. It is never right I think you do this situation that we were in 056 and seven. I think. This team. Won't have to go through what took those teams did you know but I think those genes work. Where where guys were were directly at the end of their career I don't believe that's where the guys that Kmart now think they've got a really good foundation. A lot of guys up the middle on the field and then rotation that pitched. They give you a lot of innings I don't think there's oral as you think. It's just got to get the pieces here in the air inlet together. Met when you play baseball they say you built from the middle out and that's what you went of those guys from the middle one of the pitchers. And you know doing your process I was looking cute in sixteen years and National Football League. In doing your processor never blinked you never think about your career and everything about all the things you do. In finally when it's over what do you reflect on in now he had that top opportunity to excel doing excel. What he's seen. Just just gradually that the game you know I. So there are so many times and I cannot believe or or through this shirts and that much longer and the seasonal Gordon this road road trip for the city. You know it and when he when he started when he see the end. He even get a chance like stand agree that we're. That man knows there's actually a lot of on the go through. One elders long nights and so long days. But it was it was on and that I enjoyed them some experience that I would never had. You know going true. Any other you know job I would been a part of them in the baseball brought so many people and in my life. That that I would have been able to experience. On really really let it be able app so. That is such a huge opportunity in. Hopefully that to demanded that much quicker. You know one of those people another fan favorite Timmy Lincecum had you heard from the freak at all since the announcement. Daughter and giving up my turn to reach out to them two got the right number of in the auto probably. Find a way to get a hold of that dust in the number you guys you want. What do you know what you're think he's doing and so many people are curious as to what he's got going on and it's so shrouded in mystery any idea what he can be up to. Or at least what you might be allowed to stay on there. I mean it could be up to do it gymnastics she be brought in the backyard. Golf. You know whole ride bikes I mean you don't ever go Timmy he's.
