Update: Barrett is expected to be in the Padres' lineup on Wednesday against the Orioles, according to MLB.com.
Recommendation: He is flying to San Diego from Texas, where the Cubs are playing the Rangers. The fact that the Padres plan to insert Barrett into the lineup right away is a good sign in his quest to wrestle playing time from incumbent starter Josh Bard.
He'll go 0-5 an end up the backup catcher the rest of the season. How do I know this? He's on my team and I have the bubonic plauge touch this year. Almost every player I touch gets hurt or well underperforms the experts expectations as long as I have them.
i may be your good luck charm because i have relatively good luck when my players get traded even though this looks to be a bad situation for barrett. I hope he goes 5 for 5. lets try and be posative here
