    Trading LaRue?

    MLBtraderumours.com has the following:

    Michael Barrett On The Block?
    Here's an interesting tidbit buried in a Giants notes column: the Cubs "reportedly are open to the idea of trading catcher Michael Barrett for pitching help." I can't imagine they'll part with Barrett cheaply, but does that mean they are willing to go with Henry Blanco and, say, Geovany Soto behind the plate?

    One thing is for sure: there isn't much available on the free-agent market. I suppose that if Barrett brought a decent return, a Mike Piazza-Blanco offense-defense platoon might make some sense for the Cubs; beyond that, the options are a bunch of guys who will cost more than Barrett (last year of a $12M/3y deal) and produce less.
    Anyone think LaRue, who isn't much more expensive than Barrett, might have any suitors?

    Defintly and in this volatile market I would shop Javy also but let the dust settle and shop these 2 players in late December early January. Do not expect to get a bounty back, but a reasonable return maybe there to be had.

    Look at the deal Blanco just signed with the Baby Bears.

    I'd keep Jason LaRue.
