I don't think he'll be a consistantly-producing catcher long-term, but I think he will be a perfectly capable fantasy catcher for the rest of the year.
I drafted Barrett as my backup C in my keeper league just in case LoDuca didn't work out. I ended up trading LoDuca - for more reasons than just Barrett - partly because I felt that Barrett was capable of handling the spot on my roster just as well as LoDuca was. So far, I have not regretted the trade one bit, and I don't believe I will regret it later in the season, either.
Long-term, I plan on keeping Barrett and then trading him away early next season for a draft pick. I'm sure someone will be interested in him, but if not, I will stick him as the backup again. Who knows? Maybe he'll produce again next year. At 28, he still has a couple of good years left...
You should be banned from using the "STL" name. We never say we like a baby bear, MAN WHATS WRONG WITH YOU???
