(Opening image Jose Reyes, image credit cbc.  Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug) As the July 31st MLB trade deadline approaches, the significant buyers and sellers begin to sort themselves out: some gearing up for a hopeful run at October, others attempting to salvage a disappointing campaign with an infusion of promising prospects.

Barmes Makes Adjustment, Improves at the Plate

The common (and mostly correct) assessment of what Clint Barmes brings to the Pirates is that he’s a player who provides a capable defensive option at shortstop but brings little to the table with his bat. One just needs to look to his 0 for 3 performance on Sunday against Houston to see that. Clint Barmes’ recent adjustments to his swing have paid off in hits and helped the...

Pirates SS Clint Barmes keeping it simple in 2013

Clint Barmes knows his glove kept him in the Pittsburgh Pirates' lineup a year ago. The veteran shortstop hopes his bat chips in this season. Barmes says he spent the winter focusing on keeping things simple at the plate. He admits he tried to do too much too soon in 2012, when he hit a miserable .170 during April and May. Manager Clint Hurdle stuck with Barmes, however, because...

Clint Barmes is on my list.

I do not appreciate Barmes' contribution to the game today. FYI, tweets like this are welcome: #SocksUp! JONNY! @braveslove — Michelle(@uscfox) February 24, 2013 Tweets like this are not: @braveslove he has given up quite a few homers the past year. — Robert Baker (@baseballfan30) February 24, 2013 1.

How long do you stick with Clint Barmes?

Through 40 games, Clint Barmes is hitting .171/.200/.285. Last night, he drew a walk and doubled his season walk total. It's true that he was mostly signed to play defense, but it's hard to say that his defense has been anything better than about average at shortstop this year. Still, he's started more games than any Pirate other than Neil Walker this year. So how long...

Clint Barmes is Mr. Popular

Clint Barmes might be the new “Most Interesting Man in the World.” According to many analysts at the GM Meetings, Barmes’ agent was out in full force Wednesday. Perhaps surprisingly, Barmes is drawing a lot of interest from multiple teams. While Barmes isn’t the sexiest name on the shortstop market, he might actually be one of the better bargains at the position this off...
