“You want to be in a place where you are wanted and needed,” Carrasco said. “The White Sox probably still wanted me, but didn’t need me. I love playing the game, but you’ve got to be smart, and there’s just not a lot of longevity in middle relief. It’s about closing and starting and setting up. I feel I can really help a team, and it will be an interesting learning experience seeing what teams think of me.”
… “There are other things I feel I can do, not just being a long man,” Carrasco said. “But I praise the White Sox for giving me an opportunity. One of the reasons I’m going to miss Chicago is the passion and knowledge of the White Sox fans,” said Carrasco, when asked if he had heard of fans’ disappointment over his departure. “It holds a special place in my heart that they wanted me back.”
