UPDATE, 12-13-07 at 10:56am: Rosenthal says it’s a one-year, $4.5MM deal. Who can complain about that?
FROM 12-13-07 at 8:30am:
This one’s from out in left field – Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays are close to signing David Eckstein. Rosenthal expects the signing to push newly inked defensive specialist John McDonald to a backup role.
Perhaps the Jays can go for some kind of offense/defense platoon. If a groundballer like Jesse Litsch or Jeremy Accardo happens to be on the mound, the Jays could opt for defense.
