Cook: 'I came into camp just trying to make the team'
A's reliever Ryan Cook has nothing but good things to say about Bob Melvin and being called up to play for the Oakland Athletics this season.
I consider and it's been a long ride. An excellent -- and it's I came in camp. He's trying to make the team. And then to have everything kind of fall in place like this is -- the -- -- -- I definitely didn't see coming. Small forward. A bit. You can really gel nicely with the clubhouse what would look at some of the when you first came in spring training that. It's getting any differently with the guys. Along in the club -- -- them -- Anyway. And so I didn't have a problem fitting in with anybody. I think the first person I guess I meant what I walked in the clubhouse -- spring training was Brian Fuentes and and introduce themselves and as Tito -- -- mind that's not having your name when you mean. Looks from that point on I just kind of sat down and -- and the next thing and news and everyone was the same as it was an Arizona. So. It's been awesome but we just looked about talking about. If you as a person -- What you've been -- -- you no. Throw the whole motivation from -- and now. Yeah I mean I have nothing but good things saying. Everyone's so far in this organization I mean. The opportunities opportunities that I've been given. Far exceeded my expectations coming into camp like this. You know the trust factor that's there is just through the roof and the communication. Is this ideal it's everything I ever could dream. You know away. UConn. Helmet bounced back what I did have a bump in the road or. The congratulatory. Responses as well when I do have a good one and everything. I just really fit and I feel like you -- involvement and with the organization as well. We demonstrated how much to help the other guys that come over into the hole. -- -- do everything you know probably -- when you get traded from situations. Right. No it's it was his personal. You know having Jared Cowen. And even Brandon Allen and Jordan ever so. To look kind of fall back on us. I don't wanna -- security blankets but security like it's you know what I mean. Like I said once I came in in the clubhouse I felt that home run away at an -- field. Any animosity with anybody I felt like all great guys and we're going in you know my expectations right Lisa have those security -- -- all. A little bit just looking forward. The second wild card without -- this year. Complicated dynamic team like buyers and sellers. -- -- feeling about it about -- the change -- -- abandoned it in general. -- I think he gives. Me no more teams shots. I think right now word as of late we've been playing really good baseball and you know I think we got pretty good chemistry going in the clubhouse and we're gonna make. -- we can that are on and all that stuff and as far as -- changes the dynamics -- some. That's not really my side of the business.
