Josh Barfield looking good

Postby Carey Saders » Wed Mar 08, 2006 1:25 pm

His numbers in ST so far are good:

9 AB, 4H, 2 2B, 1 3B, 5 R, 6 RBI, 1 SB

What catches my eye are the 2 doubles and the triple. Of course, the kid might not hit too many homers in Petco.

What do you see young Josh doing if he makes the team?

I'm curious in large part because Ellis is my 2B.

Whew, hard to predict what Josh will put up, if he starts and play a full season, i could see him batting 275 15-18 hr and 15-20 sb's, maybe 75 rbi's

these would be great numbers for a late round pick at 2b in any draft.
He has had some pop in the minors and runs a little bit. He is still very raw and could struggle this year adjusting to the pro's. I really doubt he reaches my projections listed above.

He's got to beat out Bellhorn for the job and he isn't looking to shabby either.

Except for the fact that he's Mark Bellhorn. ;-)

I hope Barfield starts. Bellhorn would be better suited as a utility guy coming off the bench, or maybe serving beer at Petco.

I'd love to see Barfield start at second. I feel like he got a bad rap after playing through injury in 2004. I still think he is a top prospect, and the numbers put out by diesel would be a high mark for 2006.

I'm not going to put too much stock in 9 ABs in spring training, though.

Update:

14 AB, 8 H, 8 R, 11 RBI, 4 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 11 RBI, 1 SO, 1 SB

By the way, I don't own Barfield. And I know it's just ST. Those are darn good numbers though.

Problem with Barifeld is you won't know when he's starting. Even with a killer spring, him and Bellhorn will split starting time...
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I think that if he has a great spring they have to start Barfield. Bellhorn would be a good utility player for the Pads and he isn't making so much money that they can't afford to have him coming off the bench.

Piece of advice, when it's comes to fantasy, it's best to act like March doesn't exist.
