While listening to the Cubs game today and hearing about Koyie Hill's stud day at the park, I couldn't help but be reminded of the legend that was Scott Servais. Despite his career .245 batting average, Scott Servais showed all the necessary traits of a quality team leader, guts, spunk, and git. But the thing most impressive was how he called a game. Afterall, who else could have helped Kevin Tapani win 19 games in 1998?
Right now, Scott Servais is currently the Director of Player Development for the Texas Rangers and you can bet that he will lead those troops to the top of the AL West sometime in the next 10 years.
Plus, he's from La Crosse, Wisconsin....which just reinforces his awesomeness.
