I was curious what people thought about the Josh Barfield and Asdrubal Cabrera situation in Cleveland. Barfield was dealt for Kouzmanoff and seen as the longtime and cheap fixture at 2B with a ton of potential. He answered those expectations with a very lackluster performance in 2007. Cabrera, a steal from the Mariners, stepped up and suplanted Barfield for the starting 2B job and even grew in the batter order to hit 2nd. I am curious what the Indians are going to do. Obviously, they don't want to have another Brandon Phillips, who they basically gave away, escape their grasp and become a 30/30 guy in Cincinnati, because that is Barfield's potential. But it seems like a waste to have him sit the bench in Cleveland with his trade value still being high.
Potential Suitors for Barfield:
Colorado = Needs to fill a spot vacated by Matsui
Royals = Grundz needs an heir and I'm not sure Callaspo is it
A's = I believe Ellis is a being FA
Giants = Durham is about to crumble to dust
Nationals = He'd be an upgrade over Belliard
