CSN Washington dot com. But as soon as they made this opportunity happen I figured you know what this is a great organization to be apart of that the names to young talent the core that they have. I figured it funerals going from Oakland to the nationals -- felt like feels the same thing young found a young family. And as soon as they said hey look we're we're interested we want to you know when they made the trade happened and I was more than happy to smile my family. We sat down and we analyze the whole thing and it came down to it was like we're happy this is this is there where we want to be in. No I get to come back home South Florida see my -- again to play against Marlins and be at home and but this is this is the most important here was to be a part of an organization. And to represent the Washington Nationals the National League guys think -- and that's going to be my hardest adjustment. I haven't had. From my highlights of my -- and it's not the prettiest highlights where it. I definitely wanna say that I will try to make an adjustment. I will try to do my best trying to put it down. And try to slow it down and running to first base Napoli and CIA I I like to be to guided loosens up mostly and and and you know I'm always. I'm always my doors are always open for whoever wants asking questions or. Young guys and he's you know a guy liners from like that I remember right. I had to go through some rough patches myself when I was coming up and my release and the big leagues in home. It's maturing obviously going up and I had a great. Great note coach Alex -- you know ballplayers Dallas Braden who took me under his wing and and led me to a right directions help me. Become the pitcher I am today and -- I give all the credit in the world people like that and you know again I'm more than happy to like passes torturing and keep you know -- not a fight could. But I like to listen I'm new in this organization I don't wanna step on anyone's toes so I like to stay back and watch and then you know which in time hopefully I can. Break him in and and help out as much of that Canas as a role models. I think it's an honor that the nationals that that I think you know players -- people were outstanding ball players. I think they're gonna do a great job in Oakland I think that this low in my opinion fair trade. Where it. You know it all said and done in Oakland was happy with their trading and I'm assuming the nationals are -- -- -- their trade but I'm definitely a type of guy that around. I don't want that you down I will do anything and everything I can't so make sure you've got exactly where you wanted and home. I I love those in the pressure situations I love the bring it on who were you know if it's also been on you need this game and -- -- on their human of these Bobby in the bullpen if I have to. I I love the whole situation worse. Let's go up there and compete and this is what the nationals brought on to the table and we we made this trade for you go out there and compete for us and I file I felt Nadal was a privilege and an honor to do CSN Washington dot com.
