I don't mind that Padres deal because at least it has a top prospect (Mejia) in it.

Morejon isn't rated badly either

I'd push for Mejia + Paddack. Don't know if San Diego would do that though, especially without the window.

Trammell plus India is what I'd want from Cincy. I think Trammell would be the "easiest" of those top 3 to get, if they trade any of them. Again they may not be willing without a window.

Barnhardt is a far superior defender.

Its about cost per dollar spent basically.  Do you allocate your dollars elsewhere within your budget?  Basically is the added offensive numbers worth the far superior long term price tag, primarily in any possible extension signed, you figure 8 mil or so arby next year and then who knows what after.  

Barnhardt is at 4 mil AAV.  So its really down to dollars and cents.  lol

Far superior defensively? JT is the best all around catcher for a reason.

1) Statcast the past four years has proven he's the fastest, as he led that category the past 4 seasons.

2) JT has the best pop time in the league because he has the 3rd strongest arm and the 3rd fastest exchange rate.

3) Those things allow JT to have one of the best caught stealing percentages in the league

4) JT has improved his power every year and he's been hitting the ball better every year.

5) JT's last 4 years Def rating according to fangraphs - 8.8 / 10.3 / 12.6 / 7.9 = 9.9 AVG meanwhile Barnhart 5.9 / 11 / 14.9 / 5.5 = 9.325 AVG

So yeah, not only is JT, FAR superior with the bat, he's actually faster, stronger arm, better pop time, better defensively and he's better at framing (he's average at it but Barnhart is awful at it)

Since I took you to school, here are my sources. The MLB article is by far the most interesting.

And last by not least, you don't get better and build for the future by trading away the best catcher in baseball and letting the team get value out of an OK 28 year old catcher who isn't getting better and won't be part of this team long-term.
