BARRET TRADED

Postby sportsfan1433 » Wed Jun 20, 2007 10:41 am

Controversial Chicago Cubs catcher Michael Barrett was traded to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

In return the Cubs will receive Padres backup catcher Rob Bowen and minor league outfielder Kyler Burke, who was San Diego's first-round compensation pick in last year's first-year player draft, Olney reports. The Padres will get cash considerations from the Cubs.

I like to see Barrett gone as shoddy as his defense has been this year. I wish we would have gotten a little more in return....The last thing we need is another outfielder and another catcher, and why did we have to pick up part of his contract? Oh well...I guess it was better to get something instead of losing him to Free Agency for nothing.

I really hope that this trade is a precurser to a bigger/better trade.

I'm glad Barrett got traded. He was getting into too many fights with Cubs pitchers and besides, Koyie Hill has been doing amazing lately and we just got Jason Kendall.
