Post-Gazette: Pirates may be Interested in Michael Barrett

The Pirates could have interest in Padres catcher Michael Barrett, the Post-Gazette reports. The P-G also suggests the Pirates wouldn't give up a whole lot.

If that's the case, then I'm interested. Barrett has a well-earned reputation for being a big pain to work with - trading for him would surely silence all Neal Huntington's talk about changing the culture of the organization. But he's one year removed from hitting .307/.368/.517 for the Cubs, and we all know how much the Bucs could use an upgrade at catcher. The Padres are in need of outfielders and might ask for one in return. I don't know what a good match would be. Really, the Bucs should only be trading players of value for prospects.
