Pirates look likely for Barmes

Ken Rosenthal says that the Pirates are in the lead for the services of Clint Barmes, with the Giants and Brewers also competing on who gets his slick glove for the next two seasons.

Should this go down, it raises the possibility that the Astros will defer the option of playing shortstop, and just mount a Derek Jeter Fathead on a four-sided piece of cardboard and stick it between 2nd and 3rd base.
