What kinda year do you see him having? Right now I have Eric Byrnes as my back-up OF but he's not even starting today, it looks like he might share ABs with Charles Thomas. SHould I drop Byrnes for Floyd?

Floyd is an interesting question mark. Is he the future? Yes. But right now I think he scrapped for 5th in rotation and when Padilla returns from the DL, we could easily see Floyd sit down for the season. I currently have him until this happens with Padilla, who I also have bakin' cookies on my DL. I think Floyd is going to be great but we'll have to wait until Saturday to find out. He is debuting to a potent St. Louis lineup. But I think he's got the junk to go the distance. Take him if you like to win and win big off a gamble. ;-D But it could easily roll the other direction, and in a hurry. :-t

Hehe...I was thinking that too. I'm pretty sure he's talking about Gavin Floyd.

I don't remember exactly what Cliff Floyd's stats were last year (* I have a general idea - see bottom), but I do watch him a lot since I am a Mets fan. I feel he's a "hit or miss" type player. He has a heavy swing and he'll either hit a bomb or get out. He can't run either like he used to. If you need power, take Floyd. If you want speed and average, keep Byrnes.

If Byrnes is platooning though, take Floyd - he's going to stay in the starting lineup barring injury. Floyd should hit close to 25 HR's, 70-75 RBI and a .265 AVG.

Floyd is always solid when he plays, if you need an OF go grab him..just expect the inevitable injury

floyd could hit 30 our and steal 20 if he plays 150 games. big if, but when you consider the cost, i don't think it's outrageous to add him now.

he man was money back in the day. the problem is he's played like 60 games each of the past 2 years.

He has plenty of potential when healthy. DaQ, I'm sorry, but that isn't a great analysis of Floyd. He's not a hit or miss type player. When he's dialed in, he's a superb hitter. Believe it or not, he's one of the top lefty hitters vs. lefties in the game. He's hit .289 in his career vs. then...against .281 vs. righties.

He may have tried to hit for too much power last yera, but I doubt that continues. I think they're going to tell him to work on being a good hitter overall. His spring stats do reflect that, if that means anything...high average, little power.

The good Cliff Floyd is not an all or nothing player. It's one that cna hit close to .300. .283 lifetime clip, including a a consistent high .200s low .300s streak in his prime years. He may be past his prime, but given a full season, he can certainly hit .285-28 HR-15 SB...at least.

If he can stay healthy, he would be a top 20 or so OFer IMO. That's a big if though, given his recent history. I would get him and ride him as long as he is healthy.
