On being involved in trade rumors for multiple teams:
"On one hand, it's kind of cool because everybody wants you. Every team out there is good. ... It's kind of really nice to be wanted. On the other hand, it's not so nice because you have to deal with the same exact question: Where do you think you're going to go? Have you heard anything? Blah, blah, blah."
Where does he think he'll wind up:
"If I had to guess, to be honest with you, I couldn't pick one city. I'd probably say it'd be Texas, Philly or St. Louis. Those are the top three that I've heard. ... I'd set up under [Philadelphia closer Ryan] Madson and [closer Neftali] Feliz in Texas, and in St. Louis I'd probably close. I don't know. Just have to wait and see and see what happens."
Which would he rather do? Set-up or be the closer?
"I would like to go to a team that has a chance to win it all. I feel like if they're going to get me, that we're going to win it all. Just with my attitude, my pitching style and what I bring to a team ... I think we'll win it all. [I'm OK with setting up] for this year. Next year, I want to close."
