The A's offense has been on fire lately. Chavez is hitting jacks left and right. And most importantly, to this subject Byrnes over the last 5 games is:

It's people who pass judgemnt on topics like this that always seem to miss the boat. And as someone else posted in another thread, Byrnes bats close to .400 this year against lefties, and he is facing 3 LHP this weekend.
