Oakland A's Days has often marvelled at Wash's beautiful perspective on baseball. His old-school basebally-ness, emphasizing the importance of defense and hard work is so great. "Catch, step, throw. Catch, step, throw." That mantra is so Wash. We love the way he always calls Mark Ellis "Mark Ellis" and that he loves that guy so much. And after Chavy gave him one of his gold gloves he said "I've got a Gold Glove at my house. I didn't win it, but I sure got it. . . . There's no crying in baseball, but I wanted to cry." And in May, he put the A's struggles in perspective, talking about how the A's came to the yard everyday, stayed positive and played as a team. So we guess we shouldn't be surprised that Wash would drop some amazing wisdom after he lost his home in New Orleans. Here is a link.
