"I don’t understand their reason," Cervelli said, his eyes red and his voice choked. “I think maybe you have to ask [Brian] Cashman or somebody else. Maybe the other guy is better than I am right now….I’m disappointed with this, but that’s never going to change anything…If they want me to prove I can catch in the big leagues, I’ll go and prove it. I’ll show them I’m a big-league catcher. That’s it.’
Cisco…I am so sad about what happened today. I’m so sorry that this has happened. I don’t want this. I want you to stay, even if it’s for my own stupid, sentimental reasons. I’m going to miss your smiling face, your post game interviews (That’s Cervelli!), and your passion and energy so much.
I know you have what it takes to be a big-league catcher. And I hope that it will be with us.
I hope to see ya soon, Cisco Kid.♥
