I would take a chance on Byrnes in a second. If he doesnt work out and you release him before the season, you don't pay him a nickel and if you release him during the season you only pay him pro-rated for the time he was on your roster.
Correct on that, but right now he has to clear waivers first. Any team picking up his waiver would have to negotiate a trade with the Dbacks first. He's not released yet.
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
