That's what I do in my weekly lineup league. Barmes gest the call if he is at home and/or has incredibly favorable matchups, otherwise its Vidro. So far Barmes is hitting a sweet .500 for me!! I was actually subbing Barmes for a slumping Renteria for a while there as well.
As to his trade value, in my league it is very low. No one will take him off my hands. I need SP and cannot make even a slightly legitimate deal. No one expects him to put up these numbers for long, but in the right scenario he can be a huge asset to your team.
