Cubs Trade Barrett to San Diego in Exchange for Garbage

Recommended Posts

Michael Barrett's last four seasons:

2004: .287/.337/.489

2005: .276/.345/.479

2006: .307/.358/.517

2007: .256/.307/.427

Barrett has had a down year thus far, but he had multiple hits last night and he is still one of the 5 best offensive catchers in baseball. He was the fourth most dangerous hitter on the Cubs' team and they traded him away for absolute ****.

He's good and should have garnered more in return. I think the recent arguments with some of the staff sealed his fate and GM's new the price tag was at it's lowest.

Top 5 offensively is a bit of a stretch. Victor Martinez, Posada, Mauer, Russell Martin, McCann, Bengie Molina, Johjima, Varitek, Ramon Hernandez, Pudge are all probably better.

Barret is about on a Pierzynsky level.

He's a better hitter than Molina Varitek, Hernandez and Pudge at this point..

Just not statistically....injuries this season aside.

Yes. Statistically. The fact that he's been a slump doesn't change that.

Which of those players does he have better stats than other than Hernandez who was injured?

Pudge 7Hr-39 RBI's-.292 avg.

Molina 6-34 - .294

Varitek 7-31 - .265

Barrett 9-29 - .255

Barrett has had a mid 800's OPS the last 3 years and thats what he'll probably end up with. None of those other players will do that. Also trying to use HR, AVG and RBI's to try to find the better player will give you useless information.[/quote]

Yeah why they ever labled them the Triple Crown categories is beyond me.

Listen Mike...Barrett had a "mid" 800 OPS once....last season in 375 AB's So it's jaded.

Must everything be argued to death? Right now...today... he is the lowest of the group in Triple Crown categories AND.... get this.... OPS.

You said he was a better power hitter than any of those guys on the list. Apparently you were mistaken. Admit it. Move on.

Add Molina's 58 HR's the last 4 seasons and again there is no disparity. Barrett is a nice player....top5 offensively as a catcher?...NO. Better than the middle tier guys we are discussing? NO.

He is also now no longer playing in Wrigley.
