Rival teams frequently ask about Darwin Barney and it’s possible the Cubs will trade the second baseman.
Similarly to LaHair, I know the obvious response is that nobody would offer enough to make it worth trading a player as productive as Barney at his price, but say that they do? If someone wants to overpay, or even sprinkle in some extra prospects in a Dempster or Garza I'd do it in heartbeat. I doubt that anyeone expects him to continue his 3.2 WAR play, and if this could be the definition of selling high.
Our next options for 2nd would be Cardenas, Valbuena, Lake, and DeWitt could then each audition for 2nd once Baker's gone.
