“It’s a matter of us swinging the bats better,” said Kotsay, who didn’t start Saturday against Cleveland right-hander Jake Westbrook and is in a 2-for-23 slump.
“Obviously, they’re going to go with who is swinging the hot bat. I had some tough outs, but for the most part I suck right now. When I get the opportunity to get back in the lineup, you want to be able to get some hits and help this club win.”
This brings memories of the Mackowiak CF experiment. Mackowiak was saying ‘I suck out there’ but Ozzie kept playing him in CF.
