Koskie on the move?

Postby go_jays_go » Wed Oct 05, 2005 6:19 pm

News
When asked about third baseman Corey Koskie's future with the Blue Jays, general manager J.P. Ricciardi told the Toronto Star, "I don't know, If Aaron Hill is on our club he's going to have to play every day. I don't think it would do him any good to be a reserve. It will play itself out." The Twins were apparently upset when they lost Koskie and have exchanged offers with the Blue Jays since. The Jays might be willing to pay the difference in what the Twins had offered last winter and then throw in a mid-level prospect to get Morneau to fill their first base void.

Views
The Jays have been rumored to be shopping current first baseman Erik Hinske and are still struggling to find an ample replacement for the departed slugger Carlos Delgado at first base. They are a team that will be active this offseason due to a significant increase in available funds, but this move is simply an unsubstantiated rumor at this point.


Morneau a Jay? That would be nice.

It's just rumours at this point, so I don't really see it happening.

Why exactly would Minny trade Morneau for Koskie and a "mid-level" prospect?

Probably wouldn't happen. I'm just saying it would be nice. Don't shoot the messenger. ;-)

I'd read it in the Star earlier that day, it just doesn't seem very plausible.
