Re: Diamondbacks Releasing Eric Byrnes
I was a big fan of getting Bynres when he was a FA. I think he fit well and was just coming into his own.
Unfortunately the injury bug hit as well as a major slump.
I'd LOVE to get him on the cheap - or trade Taveras, Lincoln, and some other bloated contracts for him!
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
