Coste to Orioles?

According to a report on an MASN blog, the Phillies and Orioles “apparently have engaged in trade talks.”  The Orioles are interested in a catcher after they move Ramon Hernandez to the Reds.  The reports say Chris Coste is at the top of their list. Coste, who began the season in a 60/40 platoone with Carlos Ruiz, saw his playing time dwindle toward the end of last season. If Coste were to stay with the Philies he would find himself in a competition for the back-up role with the newly acquired Ronny Paulino.  Sources close to the team told me, they “would be shocked if Coste emerges victorious.”
