Trade of the Day: 2/7/12

Here comes the Padres' compensation for Cubs' GM Jed Hoyer..."At 5'11", 195 pounds, from Sikeston High School, the San Diego Padres select...Blake DeWitt!"
This trade could serve as adequate repayment for Hoyer's departure and also fill a bench role for the Padres, with the recently DFA'd DeWitt serving as a backup at all the infield positions and as an emergency outfielder. I like to think my hypothetical trades actually happen, so after the Bartlett-Niemann trade proposed Friday, DeWitt ends up as the 13th and final position player needed for a predicted opening roster, listed below:

  1. Chase Headley 3B
  2. Orlando Hudson 2B
  3. Cameron Maybin CF
  4. Carlos Quentin LF
  5. Yonder Alonso 1B
  6. Nick Hundley C
  7. Will Venable RF
  8. Elliot Johnson SS (defensive specialist?...UZR of over 21 in over 337 innings in '11...)
Bench: John Baker, DeWitt, Jesus Guzman, Chris Denorfia, and Mark Kotsay
