Rob: Not too bad. Just wanted to ask, how’s camp been going so far?
Emaus: Enjoying it.
Rob: The whole second base competition, obviously its not getting too heated?
Emaus; No, it won’t be heated at all.
Rob: Yeah? You’ve been working with the other guys pretty well?
Emaus: Yeah, it’s your teammates.
Rob: So, how do you like your chances?
Emaus: I have no idea, to tell you the truth. I’m just out there working hard and what happens, happens. You know? I can only control what I can control.
Rob: Now, is this your first big league camp?
Emaus: This is my third.
Rob: How’s the differences between this and maybe the other ones back with the Blue Jays?
Emaus: Not too much difference, you know? Everybody gets their work in. All professionals. They are pretty similar.
Rob: Alright, then obviously you came over here through the rule five. How was that? What was it like when you were picked and what were your feelings?
Emaus: I was excited, man. Happy to come over to the organization and help out.
Rob: That about covers it. Thanks very much.
