A's manager: Team won't cry over spilled coffee

Posted at 10:37 AM on October 6, 2006 by Bill Wareham

Those of you who watched Game 2 of the Twins-A's series may have been privy to a dust-up in the A's dugout after Milton Bradley knocked a cup of coffee on teammate Esteban Loaiza. (The Pioneer Press has a more detailed account here.)

So how could Future Tense host Jon Gordon pass up an opportunity to bring the incident up when he crossed paths with A's manager Ken Macha in a Starbucks of all places. Here's Jon's report:
7:40 am, Ken Macha gets two venti coffee drinks in Starbucks in Alameda. Wonder who the other one was for? I told him not to let Milton Bradley spill the drinks on the starting pitcher today. He said when that happened during Game 2 the ensuing minor incident fired the A's up and got them a few runs, so he refused to make a pledge not to let more spillage happen.

Jon will be covering Game 3 for us today. He'll have a report on All Things Considered if it ends early enough, and tomorrow morning on MPR News stations.
