People wonder who is going to take the mantle of Team Leader. Well I have an answer for you...Mark Kotsay. Check this out.
A's manager Ken Macha credited Kotsay with firing up the squad for the final push when the A's fell behind a second time. After a great throw to the plate to nail Carl Everett to end the White Sox's four-run sixth, Oakland's center fielder let his teammates have it.We finally have that guy who will light a fire under this team.
"He came in and let everyone know how he felt about that inning,'' Macha said.
"It got pretty heated,'' said Chavez, who had two hits with men in scoring position and drove in three runs. "The game was ugly at that point, (Kotsay) just got mad. We scored three runs (after that), take that for what it's worth.''
Beautiful throw to home for the assist and beautiful tirade. Thank you Mark Kotsay.
And the man crush grows, I so need to buy a Kotsay jersey, next paycheck, I promise.
