Fields homered in his first MLB at-bat in 2006 and followed that up with a 23-homer 2007, netting him seventh place in that year's Rookie of the Year voting. But when the Sox couldn't find a taker for Joe Crede in March of 2008, Fields was sent back to Triple-A, where he struggled.

And when Crede was injured later in the season, the Sox opted to go with Juan Uribe at third base instead of Fields. He only saw 35 plate appearances in the season that was supposed to be the year in which he established himself as a solid major leaguer.

Fields did play quite a bit in 2009, but he struggled, only hitting seven home runs in 268 plate appearances. One of those seven was a grand slam in Mark Buehrle's perfect game, and he did catch the final out of that contest. But Fields' fate was sealed by that point, and he wound up bouncing from Kansas City to Pittsburgh and now to Los Angeles.

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

Sources have confirmed that kids really do say the darndest things. 

In a spring training game Sunday afternoon, 6-year-old Brody Chernoff, son of Indians general manager Mike Chernoff, spilled the beans on his dad's prospective moves. Goated by announcer Todd Hamilton, Brody said that his dad was trying to keep Lindor in Cleveland for seven more years.

On one hand, Brody's honesty rivals a young Abraham Lincoln. Not even Adrian Wojnarowski could cultivate a source so honest and to the point. On the other, his dad probably is a little shocked that contract offer leaks are coming from his own family. 

Either way, though, hearing that Lindor may be in Cleveland for a while is bad news for the White Sox. The 23-year-old stud shortstop has hit over .300 in his first two big-league seasons. So definitely not someone you want to have in your division for years to come. Oh, plus he's absolutely nasty with the leather. 

Cubs fans know all about Lindor's talents, too. The shortstop hit .296 in his first World Series and was almost a key reason the Indians captured the crown. Almost!

Watch the hilarious exchange in the video above.
