He is as cheap as chips, and still a solid player. However, plugging him in at left, third and even second is taking AB's away from younger, and potentially better players. Defensively he is becoming sub-par at second, let alone playing him out of position. Ship him for an upper echelon BP arm under team control. Ultimately, I think it would do us more good short and long term. This kind of thing is what teams like the Padres are made for.
