Free agency is inevitable for everybody. If you play long enough, you're going to reach free agency. I don't think that's something we can concern ourselves with the first week of spring training. I know there are guys who would love to be here long term. I know there are guys - you know, it's the business - you want to see free agency and see what that market offers, what your value is, and I completely understand that. Until then, I think our focus, everybody's focus, is now. I don't think anybody has a sense of urgency as, "We need to win now, or else." We need to win now because there's no other point and no other time. Sports are for the now instead of thinking down the road. It's all about the now to me.

Oh, easily. I've never been a guy that travels with too many people. If I'm going somewhere ? if I'm out of town, going to parties, I'll probably take one or two of my good friends to go. It's just never been me. I've always heard the saying, "The loudest one in the room is always the weakest." I think that's a very true statement. So I don't speak. I don't try to be loud. I don't try to be the big one in the room. But on the field, I try to let my actions speak.

I'll explain something to you if you ask me, but for the most part, I just let my actions control and dictate how you view me.

Uhhh, yeah you do Adam. You're doing it right now. If you didn't speak, you wouldn't be sitting there compounding a stupid tweet with a sit-down interview. Simple question: How do you profit by being candid with people who are perfectly content being fed recycled pap?
