Better fantasy SS this year Barmes or Ramirez or Kinsler

Postby MushuCrew » Thu Apr 20, 2006 12:59 pm

Just want to guage the cafe members thoughts on Hanley Ramirez vs Clint Barmes from a fantasy standpoint this year. Let's add another option to this debate, Ian Kinsler who is eligible at SS in some leagues looked pretty solid before getting hurt.

I don't see how people are saying Ramirez it makes no sense

The kid has 32 HR's in 1700+ minor league ab's

I went with Barmes, but I personally haven't seen much of Ramirez yet, while Barmes has impressed me at times...

I personally like Barmes but just thought since Ramirez has been hot the past couple days that I'd bring up this debate on young SS. I guess we could add Peralta into the mix but obviously he'd win this debate hands down....

I voted for the Marlins lead-off hitter H-Ram. He will have 100 runs or more, 20 or more steals, and hit for a .300 or better AVG. I know it's only April, but let us compare Barmes current numbers to H-Ram's.

Barmes is 16/59, 12 R, 1 HR, 7 RBI, 1 SB, .271 AVG.

H-Ram is 22/60, 16 R, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 3 SB, .367 AVG.

It looks to me like H-Ram will edge Barmes in steals and average, while posting similar numbers in the other catagories. This is why I voted for H-Ram.

Ramirez for me, I personally think Barmes is kind of over rated. I mean Ramirez will smoke him in SB and Ramirez should hit for better avg then Barmes maybe hit slightly less HR than Barmes. I don't think Barmes can repeat what he did last year, just look at his numbers after he get back from his injury. :-t

Hanley will hit a brick wall you an count on that.Wait until pitchers start to figure the kid out and he also has very little power.
