What was your welcome-to-the-big-leagues moment?
I was with the Expos in 1999 in Pittsburgh. I'd been in a platoon at second base. That night I went 3 for 5 with five RBIs and two home runs. After the game manager Felipe Alou said to me, "You're the starting second baseman."
Your most embarrassing moment?
In '98 I was called up from the minors for a game in Florida. A bunch of buddies came from Puerto Rico to see me play. But before the game I got sent back down. I had to go down without ever seeing them.
Your favorite off-day activity?
Washing my cars.
If I were commissioner for a day, I'd ...
shorten the season to 150 games.
If I weren't playing baseball, I'd....
I never thought about doing anything but baseball.
