Two weeks ago, I wrote a post titled “Alex Guerrero Is Right Where He Should Be,” intended to refute those who insisted that Guerrero should have been added to the team rather than Darwin Barney in the wake of Hanley Ramirez‘ injury, simply because he had a great Triple-A stat line. When Juan Uribe hurt himself shortly after, the calls only intensified.
My case against it,...
The last few days have been so much fun around Dodger-land — Roberto Hernandez! Kevin Correia, who might start tomorrow! – that it’s easy to forget that if they don’t win today’s series finale in Milwaukee, they’ll limp out of Wisconsin having been swept by a potential playoff opponent. (Colt Hynes, by the way, was DFA’d to make room for Correia on the 40-man roster...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed shortstop Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right rib cage muscle.
Ramirez felt tightness in his right side before Friday night's game, the start of a three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers. He walked in the first inning of that game before being removed in the bottom of the inning.
Ramirez had an MRI on Saturday...

The Los Angeles Dodgeres have recalled infielder Darwin Barney from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Barney, 28, had been seeing time at shortstop while with Albuquerque even though he had been used as a second baseman during his time with the Chicago Cubs.
While Barney is a superb defender he will not provide much at the plate hitting just .230/.265/.328 with two home runs and...

Now that the Dodgers have gone through the July trade deadline without doing anything (unless you count Darwin Barney), the waiver trading process looms on the horizon. There’s an important annual reminder to be made, and that’s the fact that you’re going to hear a lot about Dodger players going through the system. Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, and Matt Kemp will be put on...
The Cubs have been surprisingly active today, completing the Darwin Barney trade with the Dodgers, acquiring Felix Doubront from the Red Sox, and reportedly nearing a deal that would ship Emilio Bonifacio to… well, somewhere.
Martinez is a 20 year-old righty out of Venezuela who has now been named as the Barney return. In 2011 and 2012, he performed well enough...
I know that many of you are struggling with the question of whether life is worth living in the wake of yesterday’s Darwin Barney trade. Know that OVBlog is dealing with the same struggle. Hold fast, you patient ones. We will get through this together.

I once had an argument with Darwin Barney about whether or not he had any trade value. This is me, gloating that I was right — the Dodgers traded for the Cubs infielder on Monday. Then again, maybe Barney had a point. We’ll have to see what the player to be named later looks like. […]

The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Darwin Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. OUCH BABE! Remember when he was relevant? When he was possibly considered “a piece” in “the rebuild?” At least defensively, he was thought to be something, Now this is his fate.

I heard a rumor that the Dodgers might go after Darwin Barney over the weekend, but gave it literally almost no thought whatsoever, because I was on vacation, and screw it, it’s just Darwin Barney. Then David Vassegh mentioned earlier today that the interest might be real, and now, apparently, it is: Barney is reportedly a Dodger, per the Internet.
The particulars, first. Barney...

The Chicago Cubs have activated second baseman/center fielder Emilio Bonifacio from the disabled list and, to make room for him, designated second baseman Darwin Barney for assignment. Barney's DFA answers the question of what the Cubs will do with Arismendy Alcantara when Bonifacio returns.MLB.com's Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat announced the news Tuesday afternoon....
Survival of the fittest and all, and Darwin Barney has just been naturally selected off of the Cubs 40-man roster. So Emilio Bonificaio is activated and Barney gets DFA'd, with Alcantara and Bonifacio both in the starting lineup tonight. Barney will end his Cubs career with over 2000 PA's (holy ****..really?) and a place in the Hall of Cubs Punch Lines. I'm sure a stand...

The writing has been on the wall for a while now. Everyone in Chicago knew that Darwin Barney‘s days as the Chicago Cubs second baseman were numbered. Now, even those who are his biggest fans must know that Barney has no future with the Cubs. The picture has become quite clear after all that happened yesterday.

The Chicago Cubs and their fans will finally get a first-hand look at one of their highly-touted Minor League prospects as early as Wednesday. Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reported late Tuesday night that the Cubs have called up second baseman Arismendy Alcantara, one of the Cubs’ top prospects, to fill in for Darwin Barney for the next two days.Breaking: Arismendy Alcantara...
For the last four seasons the Chicago Cubs have had the luxury of sending out one of the best defensive second baseman every day. A man that has a career fielding percentage of .989.
The 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove award winner in a year in which he posted a defensive WAR of 3.7 and fielding percentage of .997. Yet this man should be traded if the Cubs are to improve for the future...
