Default C U B S ! ! !

maybe some of you cares or maybe some don't care, but i'm just pissed right now that the cubs traded barrett for a back up catcher and a minor leaguer.........itz bad enough they're not really hitting and ramirez is out with an injury while d. lee might be out with the suspension, and they gonna trade barrett for a couple of nobody's...............i understand they probably wanna get rid of him cause he's got some problems with other players, but i hope this is a plan to get another good catcher within the next couple days or weeks..........

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.

i'm glad there's a sox fan somewhere who didn't say **** about me posting about the cubs...........hehehehehe..........you're right tho, this don't make sense.........but, after listening to the score today, it seems like the cubs really wanted barrett out cause aside from getting a backup catcher and a minor leaguer, the cubs even throw in some money along with barrett, that tells you right there that they want him out.........i have a good feeling that hendry will try to pull a trade to get a good catcher cause i know he realized that he's stuck with basically 2 backup/minor league catcher and thatz not even including blanco, who also suck....................so, i hope they surprise and say that they got jason kendall .........hehehe.........cant wait for this weekends crosstown showdown.........
