Should The Cubs Trade Darwin Barney To The Yankees?



Okay now hear me out before the rants begin. With the Yankees losing Cano and signing Ellsbury, Beltran, and McCaan, they now have a huge hole to file in the infield. Jeter may or may not be able to play everyday and this leaves possible openings at both short and second. They have a filler for short but have mentioned they are looking for a infielder and a starting pitcher. They are willing to part with Ichiro or Gardner. This makes me think what a perfect trade partner for the Cubs and Darwin Barney. Barney is a great fielder but can not hit to save his life. The Yankees can overlook his bat and utilize his glove, where the Cubs are being hurt by it. I do not know if I would trade for either Ichiro or Gardner and I do not know what the farm system of the Yankees has but this does open a door of someone who could really use Barney. I wish him all the luck and will always root for him I just think we need someone who can hit and I really think it is just a season away from Baez taking over second anyway. What are your thoughts?
