Corey Koskie = Reed Johnson

By bullpenbrian at 03.01.2009 Leave a comment.

Let’s hope Corey Koskie is this year’s version of Reed Johnson.

He’ll get plenty of playing time with Lou setting aside more off days for his starters, and most importantly, Koskie provides a solid defensive back-up to Aramis at third.

Earlier this week Gordon Edes of Yahoo! Sports chronicled Koskie’s difficult recovery from post concussion syndrome.

The guy’s never suited up in a Cubs’ uni and I’m already pulling for him to make the team.

Not to mention, Koskie seems to be a high-character guy…a guy who’s willing at 35-years-old to begin the season at Triple-A if the Cubs don’t find him fit enough to play by Opening Day.

And as I mentioned yesterday, the more good people you have it’s all the better.

Give Hendry credit for pulling the trigger on this deal…Koskie’s skill set is exactly what the Cubs need to spell Ramirez when Mr. RBI takes a breather.

Reed Johnson was a huge pick-up last March, and something tells me Koskie will be no different.
