Affeldt: 'I think Sabean did a good job bringing everybody back'
Jeremy Affeldt is glad to be back with his Giants teammates for three more years.
It. I think every offseason feeling that some time that this indefinitely with a lot shorter. But I think everybody's trading -- back there. This a little different disease. If our class. And it -- And no -- you go with the with the World Baseball Classic tennis service you know the march 8 ninth -- our our throwing game anyway. Somebody not prepare any differently just because. We're being game somewhere reliever. Try to get up to one inning two innings tops that thing you know by that he did that early in spring training. You know or throw one inning at that time so for me you know I think it -- if anything I gotta give me feel more prepared to throw. When it comes the adrenaline because obviously more fans and it means little bit more sort of be a little bit more competitive environment that it generally kick it and let. The overall. Trojans here we wouldn't see him. I think he. It yeah. I always say about his story hit -- homer. I you know that. But you base that will be a fun challenge you know obviously you know tonight I haven't really he has it. You know for me it's. -- my country it is evening I want you look at me in the -- that the that both players that. Yeah that's the issue and -- the guys you know but I played against you know. A lot of ex teammates I've played a lot of guys so you know I just all -- the same way it is the bathroom sort of threw pitches and I think they can hit. That's cute but it'll be fun to be -- is resting on. He is a wanna get out against me you know get a hit it's I think it's going to be downhill -- tonight. This team that pat I think your roster and that almost your team and come. Back. And I think it's comfort ability I think it's a situation where we all know each other well -- all. And suitcases Q where it's only spring training it's awkward for anybody who -- not turning it don't always get to know them. We don't even the guys that have been with a team like Ramon Ramirez on this tour is all these that the vertically -- -- instead of personalities. I think Sidney didn't -- -- superior right back through some of the guys that he brought in for the most part the guys that you know played with the it's Sosa's a comfortable environment we are I think -- visit forwards get together in places. -- -- And was huge for me I think I would welcome the challenge of going somewhere else -- I didn't wanna have to deal that -- it came that time you know for me out of rather him back here like it did because the fact that I know all these guys yet. Know that Matt Cain in and that's -- iron Buster Posey easily close friends you know baseball and in general I think. You know we know. Another kids. Who lives. In I think that that's the most part of this team in me to come back as we were one you're winning. A lot of guys might be because they want me try to do a contender we content and we understand how to how each other plays in the comfortable in. You know there's there's a lot of positives close to where I live in the offseason -- so that everything was positive for me. I didn't have -- -- -- so it wasn't a matter of me not want to come back it is a matter they'll play the trees and markets while we're free agents. You know the deal is done two days into the offseason for me and I it just was a matter of -- wanna go out there waiting to see. What the market was in if it was a fair value and I didn't I just C united and he's giving him fair value but. That's our privileges free agent and that's what I did but. It would it take a lot for me not to come back here I really enjoy it from the front office only down. You know it was our front office. Community relations. Coaching staff players clubhouse guys and it is I enjoy the Giants will fail it's.
