Pittsburgh Pirates SS Clint Barmes, who suffered through his worst season offensively since 2006, is refocusing his efforts for 2013 to be known as a player who can provide more than just defense. "I can bring more to the team on the offensive side, so that is frustrating. But to hear that I did help with what I did defensively, I do believe that. I take a lot of pride in my defense, and it does make me feel a little better about what I did on a personal note. But I'm not satisfied. I'm going to continue to work to be more of a complete player and be solid on both sides," Barmes said.
