Barton will be 22 for most of 2008. He has great batting eye and average. He had great doubles power, which may turn into some more homeruns as he ages(even if he doesn't develop more he will still have a 850-900 OPS). He will takeover first at some point this year, and won't relinquish it until Billy Beane trades him for prospects.
