Don't sleep on Barmes... Target him in later rounds

Postby lbbaseball14 » Mon Mar 06, 2006 12:02 am

10 HR 75 runs 50 rbi's 10 sb and a 285 avg could be used as a baseline prediction and you can grab him fairly late in most drafts. Keep him in mind especially if you play in a league like mine that has SS 2B and MI spots.

Great point on targeting Barmes. I forget about him constantly, and if you don't want to spend a draft pick on the top 6 SSs, there's some real bargins to be had late.

in the drafts you guys have seen, where has barmes gone in relation to renteria? i see edgar having a pretty monstrous rebound year (10 hr 90 runs 90 rbi 20 sb .290+). espn's adp has them separated by no more than 2 rounds, and at this cost, i'd tend to favor renteria.

yeah, yes...

What do you consider late? These are some spots he's been drafted recently:

111-10th
123-11th
125-11th
129-11th
142-12th
197-17th
199-17th

that's 146.6 ave.

Renteria 130.4
Crosby 159.7
Guillen 181.2
Eckstein 226.0
O.Cabrera 233.0

I like Eckstien as a deep sleeper. He went:

181-16th
224-19th
230-20th
269-23rd

And wasn't drafted in three other drafts.

Sporting news projects him at:

Eckstein 88-6-60-13-.293
Barnes 96-17-82-10-.284

Not too far apart yet Barnes 10th-12th versus Eckstien 20+

Eckstein ;-D

I think that the difference you noted between Eck and Barmes is pretty big...

yeah, if you can get renteria in the 11th instead of barmes in the 12th...i'd really push for renteria.

now, if you miss out on renteria, and barmes is still there in the 15th or 16th, then by all means, go for it.

yeah, yes...

In the drafts I've seen renteria is going slightly ahead of Barmes. I've also seen 1 where Barmes was taken 3 rounds before Renteria

I've done 3 drafts so far, and in only 1 of them did Renteria get drafted before Barmes... The first 2 saw Barmes getting drafted in the 6th and 8th rounds wtf??? With Rent getting drafted the 7th round and 10th rounds respectively... The 3rd draft Rent was picked at 91 overall, with Barmes going at 144th at the end of the 12th
