Corey Koskie Decides to Retire: Says "frggisssimiffggianns" to His Fans

. Sunday, March 22, 2009


Don't call it a comeback - because it's not. Corey Koskie officially said goodbye to the Cubs yesterday, ending our chance of getting a hell of a steal and ending our infield issues in the same stroke. Last week, he got woozy after diving for a ball, demonstrating that he never really got over that concussion in 2006. It's a shame - before falling and suffering that concussion, he was a solid player - never really matching the potential of 1999-2003 (hovering around .400 OBP) afterward, but offering a solid option to both the Twins and the Brewers.

Koskie seemed to be an outside contender to make the Cubs, but his departure leaves the Cubs with even fewer options for a questionable infield. The solution? Take the time machine to 2012 and bring back Future Josh Vitters. Then we'll show the bastards.
