Everybody wants Clint Barmes

At least that's what  Chris Cwik hears. In the last three years Barmes has generated more than 20 runs above replacement on defense. It's true that most of that has been erased by his offense, as he has produced 35 runs below replacement at the plate. This is all offset by the fact that he mans a premium position and runs well. Fangraphs believes that his value was $8.8 million in 2008, $7.7 million in 2009, $2.5 million in 2010, and $14.1 million in 2011. He's probably due for a major pay day, and the Giants are reportedly after Barmes. Do remember though, that the Giants are going to owe Lincecum north of $20 million next year

Given Jamey Carroll's two year, $6.5 million deal, it will probably take on the order of $8 million plus over two years to sign Barmes. Good deal? Bad deal? No deal? What do you think?
