This is the first time in my life I haven't really gauged (his chances of making the team). I don't know how many pitchers they're going to carry; I don't know who's a lock to make the team.

I started feeling better and better the whole way through.

If they had anything in that arena, it would be an honor to work for this organization.

Patrick's a little embarrassed by the signs. But it shows what his being at UK has meant to our community.

I have no idea what my chances are and I am just going to go out there and try and compete and get guys out.

I thought, let's do that, I don't have anything to lose. So I've prepared in that direction before. I wasn't trying to get back in, but once I made a decision, I gave it my best shot.

I definitely would not have had this long of a career without it.
