David and Kim DeJesus on CTL
You guys get this big charity event but there's a huge trade goes down yesterday in baseball when you hear something like that. Do you look getting to locate the Marlins have completely lost their mind -- I think so is one of those things that. I saw it in the corner of some tab on you know is just on the Internet and -- like this can't be this can't be real you know but down. It's one of those things that in our hope -- players know going to Toronto gives them opportunity gone win there. And -- the city of Miami and I wish them the best it's on you know the stuff. You that you went through something similar like that with Greinke is here and all rumors from time to time what's that like when you. -- part of -- -- core group young guys you keep parent it's going to be our our time pretty soon you see that that big piece being traded. It's tough you know when you have that peace and you wanna keep them around for awhile and build up to him. But on you know it -- Zach was one of those guys that you know you can -- was special. And you know when he goes it's one of the things that you know you have to take a few years to get back guy back in. You know mom he's one of those guys that you know it's hard to come back from. -- -- -- in the NBA David mountain you know the NBA owned the New Orleans team and David Stern said known people who Lakers try to get Chris -- no you can't get you can't do battle. Bruin here it's ridiculous imbalance now. Jeffrey Loria has his three -- the money out of the city for a new stadium now he's thrown away have a of this franchise. -- -- -- must really -- -- -- -- you can make up right. Great question -- calm I think that it should've you know but. It's sort of things that he's the owner and the other owner on the other side you know they wanted to make a deal and the Blue Jays feel that they've got some good guys back in return and it's you know. -- we'll see how it goes killing you guys decided to come back here. He goes through the whole process he talks to the agent. And then you guys say OK it's Cubs this is your hole you grew up here now what was that like to go through that process from. It was really surreal I mean we bought our house a month before he signs so we had no idea so you're gonna live here and he would just go play wherever exactly. So it was just kind of bike. It it was to get a return on their highlights so the phone rings and it's feel we're Jad. And you like they hugged -- what I got a phone call the Cubs well. Yeah I was it was being the team a couple teams and you know I got you know talk to my agent. There are like gay you know that concerns and I'm like whoa like he can be home the only player -- -- -- -- tell -- that and she's like. Super excited you know it's so we had a kinda have to like. Think it over we could just feel like yes humidity like both sides it was the best opportunity for us but it ultimately came down to you know we wanted to be around here and monitor. Have our family friends around and you know we wanted to be a part of you know the Cubs rebuilding. For what's what's that like when I mean you gotta feel really fortunate we look at a marlins' situation where mark early for instance thinks he's in the playing in Florida for the next. Three years after this year and then he's -- Toronto. You know another another country. And he studies in the -- in Florida you know be getting comfortable on those state attack without him estate taxes all bad I mean you got to feel great that we -- on the road she's at home home. Yeah and -- we -- were fortunate enough to have our live right here parents so. You know her parents can take care of us -- month old so it's it's really knows a great opportunity and -- we feel we're blessed. Tell us about the charity event this is somehow he got said the Family Foundation good. I talked you raise your very passionate about giving back to the community -- to have you. You have comments stuff when something you're passionate about we're so excited though about our first big event it's going to be. Thursday before Cubs convention sort of kick off comes command center and we're having a -- south. But all comes Claire who -- lives are going to be walking a runway and all the latest trends from. The Michigan avenue 900 shots himself three author and are again and Chicago Q in size. And Clayton can play against. Please relate to an end in -- yeah I think you're better than that. But you know hanging out so it's going to be -- summer -- have a great DJ down here is on Dancing With The Stars so we're really go out of every players participating you know I sent the emails out. So little slowly but surely getting their responses you know Barney you know Kerry Wood. You know Anthony Rizzo they're all you know ready to come so who's -- sides. Who's gonna where what is that your college that your call yeah a lot of pick it out and don't let them make -- we want our -- -- uncomfortable like he's this real dressy stuff is it casual what is it like. I think it's gonna be three different types you know like a yeah -- hands. He would real issue if they can score a lot of the back pocket and never know they might have -- like that and he's been after I thought I don't get theology at the end but we better aren't that -- we're gonna back him fail they're too young to. I -- and I. Who's your best who's the best dressed teammate. I think Alfonzo. He's only there -- things I. I don't think he's definitely out there and elder statesman that knows how to you know that was pretty good that he had them there always -- came I looked nice and he had that funny -- you Wear that crazy out of yeah the blue type C do a reality cannot hit -- assume -- would you like to see him back on the team and tell us. When he left whose locker room wasn't then who would you say is that guy was our leader you know in first was Kerry Wood when he left and went to Dempster. And then neck and and it just went up into the year yeah you kind of not one of those guys you know and I -- that you know. Take the young guys under my belt but you know it's one -- when. You lose a guy like like Kerry in Dempster you know it's one of those things that we didn't really note. How to go you know I didn't have that got to lean on for -- for those situations that we needed it and in the clubhouse so what does that leadership vacuum -- What what what suffers when your leisure -- DiMarco no one really knows how to you respond you know I mean you kind of have to like. You we were all going bringing everything to dale and that's not -- job skills job is to just be the manager. And he relies on us to manage a clubhouse. Like baseball lives is that show on TV who got NBA live with that is that legit assembled a filly like Pomona. The -- -- -- Under and figuring. How ironic not at all like I thought it was. You know all I I say. It now. It's not like data so ridiculous it's a big guns I know I'm not finding out running and why -- on actually on and on that are on it but I -- about talent now known. No realities could actually gives like normal baseball lives have a bad image just sucked the correct. Yeah pretty funny they just so that got it's true I say I don't know like that style buzz as entertaining us. Absolutely. And you start working out ready. How many get you out there with me Elena go okay your workout of but -- yeah -- -- I don't think technically I do yeah. And yes I took two weeks off. Did nothing and then -- started up and now on my you know third week to lift in and just trying to get strong in the next month start human. Incorporating. Based on two more it's.
