I would hate to see the Cards or Cubs get him, I'd trade for him just to see them suffer.
DeRosa eyed by Cardinals
Mark DeRosa | Indians | Interested: Cardinals?
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak is looking for a third baseman and gave every indication on Monday that he would welcome Mark DeRosa.
The Cardinals need a third baseman because Troy Glaus has shoulder ligament damage and is not expected to return until mid-July or early August.
Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reported that Mozeliak is looking for a right-handed bat who can play third base until Glaus returns, at which point he would move somewhere elsewhere in the field.
The Indians have had DeRosa basically on the block for a couple weeks now, because his value to them isn't anywhere near what it was before Jhonny Peralta moved to third base.
In return for DeRosa, MLB.com says the Indians would want Major League-ready pitching. The Cardinals could potentially make right-handed starter Mitchell Boggs available in a trade, but what the Cards really have to offer is right-handed relievers, such as P.J. Walters or Chris Perez.
Indians may be closer to sell-off
The Indians may be closer to a mid-season sell off.
According to John Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com, the latest sign came Sunday, when they placed center fielder Grady Sizemore on the disabled list with inflammation in his left elbow.
Morosi writes that unless the Indians demonstrate quickly that they can win without Sizemore, it will be harder for general manager Mark Shapiro to justify keeping the team together.
If Shapiro determines that his team isn't going to make a run, then the Indians' prospective free agents will be available on the trade market: the much-talked-about Mark DeRosa, veteran utility infielder Jamey Carroll, and recently-effective starter Carl Pavano.
