If the season becomes lost, trade Betancourt?

With the sad state of affairs of most teams bullpens (we're not the only ones), it would seem that one of our most valuable assets that people are overlooking is Betancourt. He appears to have rebounded nicely from his disasterous 2008 season and has a good history of performance before that.

The reason I ask is because Betancourt has a 5.4 million dollar club option next year. I just can't imagine the Indians exercising that option on a middle reliever that will be 35 years old.

With his current 3.35 million dollar contract for the year, the Indians could easily agree to pay the remainder of his contract (ala Blake) and make him even more valuable.
