Boom, Barmey Outta Here
I'm guessing this was a low and outside slider that Barmes bit on to strike out. It's kind of sad to see him go: great fielder, good teammate apparently, could hit some dongs, and was actually sort of clutch during the first half of last year. On the other hand, his strike outs were a liability, his average sucked, and was probably going to be let go anyway, so at least we got something for him. The contingency of players that were on the '07 WS team is dwindling pretty quickly. I also don't like the implications of this trade on the DLR situation. Looking like he's gone, which is not good.
