Matthew Trueblood at BP:

There’s a reason Barnes has started over Grandal even against most right-handed opposing starters lately. The trend lines on the Dodgers’ catchers suggest that one is wearing down and one is mastering the art of framing...

Grandal isn’t adding two percent to the likelihood of pitches being called strikes; he’s probably not significantly above-average at all right now. On the other hand, Barnes might be adding four percent or more to the probabilities of getting strikes on takes.

Not playing today, so it looks like he won't join the 10 HR club.  But -- he now has played 20 games at 2B, so he will have the unusual position eligibility of C/2B for next season.  Not that you really need flexibility when one of the positions is Catcher, but I may slot him at 2B in the draft and buy a $1-2 catcher that I refuse to select in ultra (which always kills me when a catcher of mine gets injured).

Hit his seventh home run yesterday. Probably doesn't make the 10 HR club but is one the verge of double earnings in both formats.
