Mark Kotsay signed up with the San Diego Padres for $1.25 million. That is almost a half million more than the $800,000 the Brewers were paying him last year. I’m not sure the Padres got a good deal here. Kotsay had a number of errors, and while he did have a few big hits for the Crew he was relatively mediocre for the most part.
ANNNND…. I know this bit of news will not be good news to the inordinate amount of fans this guy has, but the Brewers will not offer a contract to Craig Counsell. Too bad it was one year too late.
