    Gibbons- with a talented team like this sometimes the best managing is just getting out of the way

    AA's criteria for manager: connect with players, connect with management. Gibbons was the right fit. Lots of people can manage, Gibby was right fit for organisation

    Marlins trade started with inquiring about Josh Johnson. Marlins started asking for some good young talent, and AA just wanted to make sure he was getting enough back. Never tries to "make a splash", just always trying to make team better.

    This, Davidi nailed it "In three minutes, John Gibbons shows more personality than John Farrell did cumulatively in two years"

    AA- Beeston knew AA was going after Johnson; when AA approached him with full deal, Beeston didn't flinch, told him to go for it

    AA- Decisions he has regretted most as GM are ones where he didn't trust gut, made decision based on optics, media reactions etc. Best decisions are ones where he thinks "we might get killed for this, but it's the right decision". Though for a second about what reception to hiring Gibby might be, but he is going with gut. Has more conviction in this hiring than any decision.

    AA- Likes trade market because you can't miss out like you can with a FA. Not done for the offseason.

    AA- Won't say what needs he is going to continue to target. Always areas to improve. Will continue to improve the team.
