2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Continuing NL league. I need a backup shortstop. My starter is Tulowitzki and I have no other shortstop on my team (though I have Rutledge, who will qualify when Tulowitzki gets injured). Brandon Hicks, Cliff Barmes or Ehire Adrienza?
(GaryJohnson from The Beach)
This is exactly what I love about a Scoresheet chat. Death is not an option, right? The answer is clearly Clint Barmes to me, though, as his 4.85 range rating swamps the other two players, and his bat is only moribund, not comatose. Or is it the other way around? Also, looking at the soft factors, Barmes is a “bigger” name, and as such, he’ll be harder to get rid of. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)As we near the end of the Clint Barmes era in Pit, will Jordy Mercer get first crack or will he be leapfrogged by Hanson, Santos, Ngoepe, etc.?
(Statorama from WI)
Hi Statorama. With the disclaimer that I am nowhere near this situation, my guess from just looking at their ages and levels of experience would be for Mercer or Santos to get first crack. The others seem too far away. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Pirates gain by picking up Burnett at $13 million? If he's solid, they can deal him for something better than they gave up , but that's a significant investment on a high-risk outcome. Of course, this is the team that gave Clint Barmes over $5 million a year to fill their SS void...losing season No. 20 is coming up.
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
The Pirates get a groundballer who averaged 195 innings a year in New York while striking out 7.9 per nine, somebody with postseason experience who is by most accounts a solid citizen in the clubhouse - for whatever the faction of shit-stirring sensationalists in the NY media might have written. He's got issues with regards to walk and home run rates and declining velocity, but it's hardly out of the question that he can adjust to the reality of his surroundings and his current level of stuff. With a good season, the Bucs can trade him for something more useful to their long-term needs. It's really not that difficult to understand. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a really deep league (20 team dynasty) how valuable is Jed Lowrie this year?
(Brendan from Chicago)
If Lowrie starts--and I think he may--he should be very valuable. Many of you probably know that I wasn't a big Lowrie fan in the past, for multiple reasons. The defense just isn't good, and he looked very lost at the plate, which led to strikeouts and poor plate appearances. Last year though, his wrist appeared healthy and he looked like he knew what he was doing at the plate, which resulted in far fewer strikeouts and more quality ABs. In a fantasy format, especially one where defense has no bearing, Lowrie is capable of being one of the better SS options available, even though he won't be stealing bases for you. That's with a mixed format in mind, so in a 20 team league, he's even more important. 20 teams means someone needs to do something like play Clint Barmes. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Rockies plan to do with Jose Lopez and Ty Wiggington? Are they mearly backup insurance or are they looking at them as everyday players?
(goreski from Coppell TX)
Wigginton seems like he is replacing Jason Giambi, trading in some power for a little more positional versatility. Lopez seems to be insurance in case someone doesn't work out at either third base or second base. He's basically their new Clint Barmes, in terms of both cost and role. (Marc Normandin)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can the Rockies do to upgrade the top of their rotation and 2B?
(Wilfredo from Santa Fe)
I don't think the top of their rotation is a problem, and even if it was, you can't do anything about it this year. Second base...dumpster-dive. There are dozens of $400,000 solutions out there, many of them better than Clint Barmes. They probably have to worry a bit more about defense than other teams, given the staff, which makes it even easier to find a passable solution. (Joe Sheehan)
