Rumor Rewind: Eski Trade Still in the Works
A few months ago there was talk of Captain Concussion aka Alecko Eskandarian potentially being traded from Toronto FC before he even got to play for them. The chatter died pretty quickly as the news of the Beckham signing hit the same day, and the Eski trade was rubbished as a rumor by Red Bull.
But like Ronaldo, this one keeps popping up. Last time around it was a trade for a keeper when RBNY was sitting on Wattreus, Rimando, and Conway. Now I'm hearing some scuttlebutt that TFC is interested in trading the helmeted one for cracking defender Jeff Parke. That doesn't sound too far out of the realm of possibility as the back line seems to be the one place where Bruce's boys have a little (but not much) breathing room and Toronto has more strikers than a room full of disgruntled Teamsters with Edson Buddle, Conor Casey, and Abbe Ibrahim on the roster alongside Eskandarian.
As always with these things, we shall see.
