I dont see enough love for this kid. Everywhere I look theres a Brian Roberts thread, but what about Barmes? Another big game for him with 2 HR, 5 Rbi and brought his average up to .400. I know Roberts has been stellar thus far, but lets hear some love for Barmes.

Check the home road splits. He's a product of coors just like every other rockies hitter. That's why he doesn't get as much respect round here.

Don't worry, he'll get his respect elsewhere...like from the rookie of the year voters and from the allstar voters (or coaches voting) and from being the nl's best shortstop this season...

The Coors factor is huge but to be fair the kid is still hitting .333 on the road and is absolutely monstering left handed pitching.

This argument is stale bread.

I don't think it's fair to say that he's just a product of Coors. His road splits aren't that bad... Not nearly the same as most other Colorado hitters. Actually, he did pretty well on that last road trip.

Granted the Coors effect helps him no question, but his BA has been very good on the road as well. Colorado's offense just hasnt been able to do much all year. But so what if he plays at Coors. He's still awesome.

Well, there's alot love here for Barmes. His road average (.333) is higher than Vlad (.321), Beltran (.329), and Arod (.231) and that's saying something for his hitting ability. That's for a middle infielder that was on most folk's waiver wire.

Barmes looks real when ever I have seen him hit. Solid contact most times with good speed. I love the knee-jerk Coors' affect responses. Maybe that's why he was availible to me off the wire.

I wonder who will fade first and fall furthest, he or Roberts?

I'm gonna have to say Barmes will fall faster. Roberts is in a very good Line-up.
