Is Barney actually as good as he looks a lot of the time?

I think he really is good. If he can only keep his bat in the .275 range or so I'd be insistent we keep him.

Samardzija has made some really good pitches and made some terrible mental mistakes. At 65 after three.

He says in regard to pitching vs position player trading or aquisition:
"In certain deals, I think it is," Epstein said before Wednesday's game against Miami. "I think you can express a preference for pitching, but if you're dealing with a club that has better position player prospects and you feel the position players in a certain system are a safer bet or offer higher upside, I don't think it's right to pigeonhole yourself to one situation

Barney seems pretty safe. Interest is from Detroit and from what I hear they are offering a mid level prospect.

Don't see Barney being traded for a mid level prospect. Could be a throw in with Demp or Garza for better prospects. Barney is better than average D and cheap.
