Anyone know when we'll find out?
All circumstantial evidence, in my opinion, points to Byrnes being a PTBNL. Swapping Dunn for Byrnes couldn't be more poetic in the eyes of Marty and the alleged Blue Collar fanbase. A RHB who can be plugged in CF every day would also get Dusty's approval - can be platooned with C-Patt. I'll not be too thrilled, but I'm guessing Byrnes is one of the two PTBNLs.
These are this years numbers on some of the names bandied about as potential return (at least the names I remember). Nothing really exciting there.Code:YEAR NAME PA EqA OBP SLG VORP RAR RAP 7. 2008 Chad Tracy 194 .256 .320 .439 3.9 5 -5 8. 2008 Chris Young 515 .240 .296 .416 2.8 5.3 -13.4 13. 2008 Chris Burke 164 .207 .302 .234 -8.7 -3.4 -10.9 14. 2008 Eric Byrnes 224 .214 .272 .369 -9.7 -3.5 -15

a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

Btw, I was only kidding about Byrnes and taking him... However, it wouldn't be that bad to have him roaming center, especially if it means we can still have M. Bradley or Burrell... Maybe even 1 or 2 years of Abreu... I could live with an outfield of Bradley/Byrnes/Bruce next season... "The Killer B's"
