What was yourwelcome-to-the-big-leagues moment?
The last exhibition game [this year]. We played the Rangers in Arlington. Iwalked from the clubhouse through the dugout and to the field. I looked up ateverything, and I was like, Wow.
Your mostembarrassing moment?
When I threw one through [first baseman Mike] Jacobs's legs and two runsscored. The runner was going to be safe even if I made a good throw. [Thecoaches] said, "Know when there's a play, and when there's not."
Hanging out with my [infant], Jackson. It's awesome. He mainly sleeps andeats.
One thing aboutbeing a ballplayer the public doesn't know about?
I watch a lot of TV. A lot of TV. I watch MTV, VH1, the E! Channel. All thosecheesy shows.
