Quirk, who spent 11 seasons with KC as a part-time catcher, will be Dale Sveum's bench coach.
I always liked Quirk. He's one of only two players in MLB history with the Quirk-y surname.
Quirk's best season with KC was probably 1988. Here's his stat line for that year:
84 games, 196 ABs, 22 Rs, 47 hits, 80 TB, 7 2Bs, 1 triple, 8 HRs, 25 RBIs, 28 BBs, 2 IBBs (even Quirk could get the occasional intentional), 41 SOs, 1 SB, 5 CS, .240 BA, .333 OBP, .408 SLG, .741 OPS.
I think Quirk may have earned three WS rings---one with KC and two others Oakland. Amazing. - TL
