I like this quote:
"I'm ecstatic to be here," Morris said when formally introduced at the city's waterfront ballpark. "I appreciate the organization for having the interest in me. That really showed me a lot, even though [they] didn't know this was my first choice."That's a smooth way of putting it. It's like, "Yeah, you remember when I was making it seem like I really wanted to go to like the Red Sox or the Yankees? I was just pretending so that I could see how nicely you all would treat me. In other words, it was a test. And you passed."
