June 25, 2006

What was yourwelcome-to-the-big-leagues-moment?
I pinch-ran [for Texas] in Oakland and the [P.A. guy] announced it was my majorleague debut. The fans booed. Bobby Jones was our first base coach. He said,"What the [expletive] did you do to these people?"

Your mostembarrassing moment?
As a rookie I had to get dressed in this really tight dress when we were goingto Seattle. The guys on the team had [TV cameras] waiting for me when I got offthe plane.

Your favoriteoff-day activity?
Hanging out with my wife, Cristina, and my [baby] son, Mateo. Just hang out.Anytime I can relax with them is a good day.

get rid of the fact that the All-Star Game decides home field advantage in theWorld Series. That's a pretty silly rule.
