Re: C U B S ! ! !
I'm really confused by this trade. I'm a Sox fan, but I have nothing against Barrett. The Cubs are now left without a #1 catcher. Koyie Hill has been playing well, but he isn't a franchise backstop. Blanco is on the DL, and Bowen is a backup as well. The minor leaguer, Burke, was playing on their single-A team, and wasn't doing too well. In 62 games, he had the lowest average on the team (.211), and only had 1 homer, 21 RBI's, 73 K's, and was 3 for 4 in stolen bases - not a future star by any means. They must really have wanted Barrett gone, because the numbers just don't add up.
