Favorite food: Mexican. Chilaquiles. It's a breakfast thing. We fry the tortilla and put a red sauce on top and cheese, a little bit of onions and that's what you eat with Frijoles, which are beans in Spanish. I love that plate. It's really good. We make it at home, it's real simple.
Favorite movie: Dumb and Dumber.
Hidden talent: Mariachi singing. Ever since I was two or three, I would listen to my dad sing. I think I got it from him. It's fun signing. It relaxes me and takes me to another level.
[Gonzalez sang last year at the team talent show in Spring Training and teammates and reporters have been prodding him about singing before a game.]
It could happen. I'm actually looking forward to that. It's a probability.
If I wasn't a baseball player, I'd be: A cowboy. No, let's take that back. [Laughs.]. I like horseback riding, that's my thing. Like, rodeo. I would probably be doing that.
Favorite offseason place: I like Vegas. There's a lot to do, for kids, older people, and I just like to go out there and have fun. I also really like going to Mexico, because I have family down there and I love to be in the ranch and the farms and stuff. That's my kind of stuff, too.
Prized possession: My jewelry would be the first thing I would grab [in a fire]. There's a necklace that's really important and touching to me, my grandma gave it to me. It's good memories.
