In an interview with Martin Fennely of the Tampa Tribune, Jeff Garciaseems to realize that his approach to getting a new contract this summer, might not have been the most logical one.
I would have never have talked about if I hadn’t been asked by the media. All of a sudden, I’m asked about it and I gave honest answers. The last thing I ever wanted to sound like was that greedy professional athlete. When you start to talk about contract issues with what’s going on in the world … I don’t regret answering a question, but I think I took it to another level, because I started to let my feelings show. It needed to be behind closed doors. That’s not for everyone to hear about, know about – or judge.”
