Seals acquire Moro from Calgary for Cosme

Coanabo Cosme, we hardly knew 'ya. The first player signed for the 2010 season has been shipped back to the Calgary Vipers in return for 2008 GBL Rookie of the Year Colin Moro.

Moro fills a hole in the Seals outfield and he'll play alongside centre fielder Chris VanRossum this season. Moro finished third in hitting in the GBL last year with a .376 average and he sported an impressive .469 on-base percentage. The Calgary native also knocked in 65 runs in 74 games played. Moro will fit nicely into the top of Bret Boone's batting order and he gives the manager some lineup flexibility since he can also play some first base.

The move creates an opening in the Seals middle infield, so perhaps Wilver Perez will slide back into his usual position at second. No word yet on who might play shortstop for the Seals this season (Bret LeVier, are you interested?).
