1999 Upper Deck SP Edition Mark Kotsay

Mark Kotsay spent 17 seasons in the majors. He was a former 1st Round pick of the Marlins in 1996, and as top draft picks go I guess you could call his career underwhelming. He was never selected to an All-Star game, and only had a handful of seasons with a OPS+ above 100, but he was a consistent performer who had some pop, had a cannon for an arm and always had some impressive BB/K ratios. And teams must have valued him since he was traded five times and would play for seven different organization; the trade I most remember was when he was flipped in 2003 from the Padres to Oakland for C Ramon Hernandez and OF Terrance Long.

He was just hired by the Padres to be their hitting coach, and I have a funny feeling that he is going to do a really good job.
