Yet Another Rumor: This Time, It's Barrett

Via our favorite website:

My sources are telling me that the Blue Jays and Cubs could figure in a deal after the All-Star break. The Cubs are going to dump infielder Todd Walker and might also look at moving Michael Barrett -- whose omission from the NL All-Star team, even though it owes much to the justifiable presence of pitcher Carlos Zambrano as the Cubs representative, is one of the injustices of the All-Star rosters. Surprising, considering his knockdown of A.J. Pierzynski was universally cheered in most clubhouses. Barrett has his fans in the Blue Jays front office." Barrett has played over 100 games at third base back in his Expo days.  Considering the very weak free agent markets for third basemen and catchers, Barrett is an excellent pickup at an affordable price.  There's even the possibility that his hitting improves further if he's removed from the rigors of catching.  Some possible suitors include the Rockies, Dodgers, and Padres.

I know there was a diary a few days back about what Barrett would bring. No mention in the "article" (and I'm using that term VERY loosely) as to what we would get for him.

Any ideas?
