I'm assuming Hillenbrand gets dealt in the next few months. A replacement for Rios may also still be traded for.
Wouldn't it be better to trade Coskie ? I think Hillenbrand is a better player and more valuable
Hillenbrand has more trade value (with a good season last year), and would be a more attractive option to most teams as he also has a lower price tag.
I also believe Koskie's season last year was only an aberration, he never really got a chance to fit in. His defense is also far superior to Hillenbrand's.
It really wouldn't make much difference to me either way Ricciardi goes, but I'd rather give Koskie another shot on this team. Maybe Hillenbrand could get us a decent rightfielder.
