Barry to Tampa?

They've been hyping the shit out of this on espn.  They even interviewed the manager and some of the players on the Rays, all of whom said they were open to the idea.  Apparently the Rays are thinking about Barry.  I think Barry would be a great fit for them, especially as the back end of a 1-2 punch with Carlos Pena.  Their lineup's already pretty good, what with BJ Upton, Carlos Pena, Evan Longoria, Carl Crawford, etc.  He'd also be a good draw for the fans, of which Tampa seems to have none.  They could use more than 2 people in the stadium each game.  It'd also be good for Barry because he'd be able to DH, and spare his precious knees.  And I think they'd be fine with giving up a draft pick because of his status as a Class A FA, especially since they have #1 this year, as well as #1 last year, and several other top 3's in the past several years.  I think if they got him they'd have a lineup that ranks with or maybe even above the Sox and those damned, dirty Yankees.  Their rotation and bullpen still need work, but if their pitching staff could really step up, the Rays might finally be a competitive team.  But would the Rays fork up the dough?  And would Barry really want to play for a team with such a lame uniform?  And does anybody know any more about this?
