As you all probably know, Daric Barton played in today's MLB Futures game, going 0-1 with a strikeout. Well in honor of such a wonderful at bat, Jayson Stark wrote a pretty good piece on Barton tonight. In case you haven't read it, here's a link to the article.
The only part I don't really like is when he says..."If [Barton doesn't pan out], you'll all be officially permitted to ask: What the heck were the A's thinking when they made that trade?" since it appears Dan Haren to be a darn good pitcher in his own right.
