First, I would like to thank GOD for putting me in this position. I want to thank the Washington Nationals for giving me the opportunity to be a Major League manager. It was a great learning experience, I have no regrets.
As I move forward, I wish the Nationals all the best. I was very fortunate to work with and meet a lot of wonderful people while here.
I'd like to extend a special thank you to the fans for being so patient and supportive over the last two and a half years.
Last but not least, to the media, thank you for being fair and respectful toward my family and I.
