The Brewers and Mark Kotsay are close to a deal


Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Brewers are close to a deal with Mark Kotsay.  It’s a major league deal, so they presumably have a job for him.

Kotsay tanked as the White Sox’ DH last year, posting a .239/.303/.376 line.  He’ll be much more useful as a bench guy, pinch hitter, which is what he’ll do in Milwaukee.

I wish I had more to say about this, but it’s a transaction that speaks for itself.  Between Egypt, the Super Bowl and all the bad weather, the world has decided that there shall be no interesting baseball news happening.  Alas.
