Blue Jays interested in Wigginton?

From Bob Elliott:

The Jays like Wigginton, of the Houston Astros, but as a third baseman. Bartlett is not expected to be available from the American League champion Tampa Bay Rays.

The "but as a third baseman" comment comes on the heels of a quote talking about Furcal as an option at shortstop.

It's interesting that the Blue Jays would be interested in Wigginton, as they have Scott Rolen at third base under control until 2010 with $22 million owed to him. Of course, that's why they could be motivated to move him. But who wants a soon-to-be 34-year old third baseman held together with Bubble Tape and garden hose?
