Cubs Trade Barrett to San Diego in Exchange for Garbage

Recommended Posts

Don't be so pissed. You got more in this trade than the yankees got for Randy Johnson lol... Though they probably would've been better off just taking the draft picks...

So you were expecting to get something of value for a run of the mill catcher who has shown a history of being a problem in the clubhouse? Hmm..

How the hell is he run of the mill? Typical uninformed information from you.

You're right. You cannot find a catcher with a .256 AVG, a .307 OBP, a .734 OPS, and 9 HRs anywhere. Or one who has never hit over 20 HRs in his career. Or one who has made 5 errors this year with 8 passed balls and a whopping 17 % of runners out this season.

Those are really diamonds in the rough. Needle in a haystack.

He's been one of the best catchers in the NL the last 3 years.

As usual Cashman dropps the ball by not go ing after barrett. The yankees could've given the cubs more than they got... thats for sure.

What planet are you on? If anything the Yankees could use a bit of an upgrade at backup catcher, and Barrett is not a backup.

Getting Barrett would've let Posada play 1st 3-4 days a week and got his bat in the lineup every game.

Like I said, Barrett is a starting catcher not a backup. This isn't MLB 2K7 mikey.

This was the player who was on the trade block for less than he was worth and didn't have a no trade clause. GOD FORBID cashman use that situation to improve the team lol.

OWNED. Not that InsaneMike has enough grip on reality to understand it.

BArrett will be the best catcher traded BY FAR this season and he was traded for next to nothing.

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.

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.

If you want to go by hundred year old baseball knowledge thats fine but it's not gonna tell you much about how well those players are playing.

Barrett's last 3 seasons were all very good. Something you keep ignoring.
