Interesting Kotch quotes

If someone has posted this elsewhere, feel free to delete it. I just stumbled across it and thought it would be worth reading for people interested.

I dont expect the guy to act bummed, hes going to a nice organization and he'll be a man about it.

But the way th LA TImes(ya, i know) paint it, it kind of sounds like Kotchman is happy he's leaving

Some quick blurbs:

Asked whether he felt jolted by Tuesday's trade, considering the ties he has to an organization that drafted him in the first round in 2000 and has employed his father, Tom, as a minor league manager and scout for about 30 years, Kotchman barely flinched. "No, not at all," he said. "I don't have any ties here."

He said he looked forward to playing for Braves Manager Bobby Cox. "You see how he handles players, how he pulls for his guys," he said. "You have to believe it's a blessing for me to start a new chapter in Atlanta."

The article also starts off by saying that Kotch may have had some resentment towards Scoscia for always having been benched against lefties. Interesting...
