3News' Dave Chudowsky: I remember last year's "Beyond the Dugout" with you. It was really good stuff. Do you think you could live up to what you gave us last year?
Carlos Carrasco: I think so, yes.
Chudowsky: If you could be an animal, what would it be?
Carrasco: The lion.
Carrasco: Because he doesn't have any predator or something like that, nothing can mess with the lion.
Chudowsky: And lions aren't scared of anything. Are you scared of anything?
Chudowsky: Nothing? Nothing out there?
Carrasco: Nothing out there… Maybe yes, I'm scared of my wife (laughs).
Chudowsky: CUT! Take two. That might get you in trouble.
Carrasco: Yeah, I’m pretty sure she doesn’t want to see this.
Chudowsky: Are you into emojis like Francisco likes the smiley face?
Carrasco: I always do cookie.
Chudowsky: That makes sense. Current favorite nickname on the team? I know you give the nicknames out there, but is there one you like best?
Carrasco: Uh well, Lindor. It's good. "Mr. Smiles." I think it’s one of the best. I never see him mad. He always smiles, even on the field.
Chudowsky: Is there a batter that you hate to face the most?
Carrasco: There is a lot, but Jose Altuve is one of them. Sometimes, every time when I pitch, I say, "OK. Man, I'm just gonna go with my best pitch, if you hit it…you hit it." If not, he's gonna be out, but sometime I am thinking too much the way to pitch.
Chudowsky: Let's get sentimental for a moment here and close on this. Favorite memory and moment with the Indians so far?
Carrasco: The All-Star game because I received all this support from the fans, the community of Cleveland. A special moment that was in Cleveland. There was a lot of people in there!
