Mystery Claim on Blue Jays' Alex Rios?



Interesting.....Buster Olney is reporting some mystery team has made a claim on Blue Jays' RF Alex Rios: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4384253

Any chance this is a Cubs move? I doubt it, given costs (he's got 6 years left on his 7 year contract, I think, which was nearly 70 million when he signed it).  Olney guesses that San Francisco is involved, and notes (astonishingly) that 20 months ago there was serious discussion of a Rios for Lincecum deal.

On the other hand, I think Rios would be pretty spectacular manning RF (and could probably play CF too).  His numbers haven't been awe inspiring this season, although he's still been pretty decent....plus, he'll get a boost (I'd imagine) getting out of the AL East....

 

Any thoughts?
