Third base coach Jeff Cox took care of a weighty issue and became richer for it. The White Sox’s third base coach said reliever Octavio Dotel called him “fat” during the seventh inning of the Sox’s game at Kansas City on May 31.
“Put your money where your mouth is,” Cox said he told Dotel.
After that game, Cox weighed 217 pounds, and Dotel bet him that he couldn’t drop his weight to 200 by the Sox’s return trip to Kansas City. Cox weighed 197 pounds Thursday and collected $500 from Dotel.
“I put myself to the grindstone, and then it was nip and tuck,” said Cox, who said he strolled 20 laps around the baseball field on a daily basis. “I’m keeping it off,” he said.
