David Eckstein – is another one of those gritty players who often make great coaches. He is winner both on and off the field. Eckstein was one of the unsung heroes through the Angels 2002 World Championship run and he also was part of the 2004 AL West Title winning team. He also seemed to provide a spark for the team and I feel he would do the same as a coach.
Unlike Molina and Erstad, Eckstein has no college or professional coaching experience, however what he lacks in that area he makes up for with his playing and life experiences. Would Eckstein be interesting in coaching remains to be seen? If he was interested he would be a great addition to the Angels staff.
