  • It's a pleasure to be joined on the show once again by Fernando Tattoos Junior in Fernando, When you were all with me over the summer and we got to the end of the interview, you told me I'm just getting started.

  • The man you weren't kidding.

  • You got the new deal that maps out your future.

  • You know where you're gonna be.

  • You know, you and your family are good.

  • How long does it take after you agree to that and sign it for it to feel like it's really This is my life.

  • I'm set.

  • Uh, we're gonna say, man, I'm still shocked.

  • You know, e I feel like it's still haven't hit me or settled down.

  • But, you know, I'm just happy.

  • Happy?

  • No, my family is happy to and just just grateful all the way around.

  • Happy is a good place to be.

  • And the thing I love about this is that they didn't have to come to you this early, right?

  • I mean, they didn't have to it all, And you didn't have to give up your late twenties when you could have really gone for who knows how much money.

  • But I think it speaks to a rare relationship between player and organization, where you guys truly do have the same goals in mind.

  • How did you guys create what you've got?

  • That's right.

  • That's right.

  • You said that they have to come to me and didn't have to, you know, sell my, my, my my years or people want to put it.

  • But you know, there's a special relationship over here and a big factor of that issue.

  • Know how they see me a za player And you know what?

  • I feel like what what I could do for add to this organization.

  • And it's just a special bonding all the way around and just the fact that I can stay on one team and, you know, fulfill my career.

  • I feel like that z over expectation over any contract.

  • When I watch you play, I don't feel like the word pressure ever applies.

  • I think you play with a joy and and that smile that I see right now and that's a beautiful thing.

  • However, with numbers like these man, it's, I think, whoever you are, it's easy to feel like I have to be something to live up to.

  • This how do you avoid that?

  • That I think that would be a mistake.

  • But how do you avoid putting that pressure on yourself?

  • We're going to say, I just you know, every time I get to the field, I'm just the same kid, You know?

  • I said, There's all over again.

  • But that's the truth.

  • The truth.

  • You know, every time I get to the ballpark, I'm using the same kid that has played the game.

  • You got to enjoy it because you just doing what you love.

  • And, you know, I feel like that's just a true blessing for a human being can can do for a living.

  • What he loved Your dad played in an era that overlap with a guy who I grew up rooting for in Baltimore.

  • Cal Ripken played there forever.

  • A better example for you would be Tony Gwynn, a lifelong guy for one place.

  • How appealing Fernando was the idea that you could spend theoretically your entire time right there where you are.

  • It is like I mentioned it is just something really special, you know, really special for me and to the organization.

  • But, uh, just just match, you know, every single contract that you can imagine.

  • And, uh, you know, something that I have looked looked for since I was a kid, And I have dreamed dream about it.

  • God is happening.

  • I read this was a family decision.
