Barrett shipped to Padres with money for a back-up catcher and a minor league outfielder.
Probably an inevitable move by the Flubbies, with all the dugout drama connected to Barrett. I don't have enough information to rate it as good or bad for either team, but it certainly seems to make sense for both. The Padres have the second lowest BA in all of baseball (man the White Sox are sucking these days), while having the best ERA in all of baseball. Barrett is performing well below his career numbers, but is still (at a lower level of production) better than the guy starting in SD. It should be noted that Barrett is a FA after this year.
