It seems like this is the rare win-win-win situation. The Mets unload a useless player and dump salary in a meaningless season, the Dodgers get a little more offense from the catcher, and Barajas gets to go home to L.A. Jesus Feliciano will take over Barajas’ roster spot which is much more useful for the Mets.
Barajas has done next to nothing for the Mets for most of this season. He has 17 hits since the end of May! Although he seems like a good guy, he’s wasting a roster spot at this point.
Josh Thole is doing a nice job and Henry Blanco is a capable backup that the pitchers like to throw to.
Take a look at Barajas’ stats for 2010 by month and it’s easy to see why he’s history.
