I can only imagine that the Blue Jays will trade Corey Koskie or Shea Hillenbrand because Overbay and Glaus will clearly be starters. Is there a possibility of Overbay or Glaus playing in the outfield ?

Neither player is that mobile, so I doubt it.


than i guess there will be more trades to come

You'd have to think so. There just isn't room for all of those corner infielders.

Personally I think it's going to look like this.

1. Adams
2. Overbay
3. Vernon
4. Glaus
5. Hillenbrand/Koskie
6. Hill
7. Johnson/Catalanatto
8. Rios
9. Zaun

Hinske will be a platoon player.

Interesting Jeff Blair article here, it looks as if Hillenbrand is officially off the block. Any other trades will likely include Koskie, Hinske or Catalanatto, but Hillenbrand is here to stay.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/ ... TopStories

I also read this on RotoWorld:

At manager John Gibbons' urging, Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi has all but taken Shea Hillenbrand off the trade block, according to The Globe and Mail.
The Jays' fascination with Hillenbrand continues. He has far more trade value than Eric Hinske or Corey Koskie and isn't very much better than either. With Troy Glaus playing third base and Lyle Overbay at first, the Jays don't even need two of the three. However, there's some thought that they could trade Frank Catalanotto and try Hillenbrand in left field.


I don't really agree with trading Cat away, as he was basically our best hitter last year.

It looks like this trade had been in the works for a long time:

Toronto Star wrote:"Yeah, I heard I'd probably be going to Arizona ... maybe even a month ago," Hudson, as upbeat as ever, said last night from his home in Darlington, S.C. "I never got upset. You can't get mad. You got to roll with it. This is a business now.

Blair as also updated his blog, it looks like Wells is in favour of the Hudson deal:

An article in the star said that Ricciardi was thinking of playin Hinske in the Outfield


Of course, now, there'll necessarily be other moves to follow, given that the Jays are overloaded at the infield corners — Glaus and Corey Koskie at third base; Shea Hillenbrand, Eric Hinske and the recently-acquired Lyle Overbay at first.

Any or all of the five could also serve as designated-hitter, but could any possibly provide for a power upgrade at one of the outfield corners?

"I think Hinske probably could," Ricciardi said. "Some days I consider that; sometimes I don't. We'll be doing a couple of things."

"I think Hinske probably could," Ricciardi said. "Some days I consider that; sometimes I don't. We'll be doing a couple of things."

Offensively, I think he would be better than Rios next year in RF, but defensively he's not even in the same league as Rios.

I doubt he'll play there full time next year if he stays with the team, but he may get some time there if this team remains the same.
