Where Are They Now: Mantei and Kotsay Find New Homes
Dave Dombrowski continues his quest to build the Detroit Marlins by adding the iceman Matt Mantei to the Tigers. Mantei was a fan favorite but in reality was highly overrated and injury prone. Thankfully, the Diamondbacks didn’t realize that and gave us Brad Penny for him back in 1999.
Not joining the Tigers is Mark Kotsay who may be on the verge of leaving Oakland for Atlanta. The media keeps laughing at the Fish for trading everyone away, but doesn’t seem to care when Oakland does the same (Billy Beane is a genius! Yeah right).
P.S. — If you have a better name to describe the Marlin-ized Detroit Tigers, please email us.
