We've had some talks about learning and advising and being available when you can. There's a fairness on both sides — how much can you give, can you be involved as much as you need to be. Some of those issues needed to be looked at. In general, the concept of transitioning is a healthy thing. We've talked about different advisory positions and ways to transition. Nothing has been set.Cal Ripken Jr. says talks with Orioles are ongoing.
