Blez: Do you like to consider yourself a home run hitter?
Barton: Not this year too much. I have some power, but I'm more of an average guy. I can hit some home runs, but I'm not too much of a power guy. The power will come though. I focus on hitting line drives and hitting the ball hard.
Blez: Did you know Haren and Calero pretty well?
Barton: Yeah, I knew Danny and Kiko pretty well from last year. I met them a few times and during spring training this year, we hung out a lot. I actually met Jason Kendall when I was in high school. He had a workout and his brother was a scout. And I hung out with him that one day. I was actually surprised he remembered me from that workout.
Blez: He remembered you from that one meeting?
Barton: Yeah from when I was a senior. So that was three years ago. He's a great guy.
Blez: That's pretty impressive. Favorite band?
Barton: Avenged Sevenfold. They're a group out of Huntington Beach. They're a heavy metal group.
Blez: Do you like Korn too? They're from HB.
Barton: Back in the day, I liked their music. My favorite song by Avenged Sevenfold is I Won't See You Tonight, Part 1.
Blez: Favorite book.
Barton: I don't have one, I really don't.
Blez: Have you read Moneyball?
Barton: I've read some of it. I haven't really gotten through the whole book. I don't read many books. I'm not really a reader.
Blez: What about magazines? Have a favorite?
Barton: It's got to be Maxim. That's a great magazine.
Blez: Favorite food?
Barton: It's got to be Mexican food. Definitely Mexican food.
Blez: Burritos or what?
Blez: Carne asada or what?
Barton: Definitely carne asada.
Blez: Favorite female actress and/or model?
Barton: I'd have to say Carmen Electra.
Blez: I guess she sort of covers the actress and model. Favorite video game?
Barton: MVP Baseball 2005.
Blez: You realize you're in it, right? It's only that it isn't your name.
Barton: Someone told me something like that. Really?
Blez: Yeah, I think Baseball America's Top 100 prospects comes up when you're at bat.
Barton: Well, if it's me, it's great. Hopefully he succeeds in the video games.
Blez: It doesn't really look like you though.
Barton: I couldn't imagine it would.
