Good news for Walker?

Todd Walker, who will hold his third annual baseball camp at Shreveport's MVP Baseball on Saturday morning, may have gotten his first good news of the offseason Tuesday.

The San Diego Padres decided to trade second baseman Josh Barfield to the Cleveland Indians to fill a gaping hole at third base. In return San Diego gets Indians prospect Kevin Kouzmanoff and a pitcher.

The trade of Barfield opens a potential landing spot for Walker, who enters the offseason as a true free agent for the first time since the 2003 season. His solid finish in San Diego -- and the Padres lack of prospect depth in the middle infield -- seem to be a nice combination and a possibility of Walker's 2007 home and perhaps beyond.
