Nice Job Eric Byrnes

Postby MightyMets » Thu Jul 06, 2006 2:41 am

long time reader..first time poster but this guy has been ridiculous recently for WW fodder especially in 12 team leagues. Above average in all 5 categories and showing no signs of slowing up. Granted in no way is he a "BJ RYAN" but he definetly deserves props.
maybe a 300/80/25/80/25 year which is very hard to find.

i think this is more of a "cheer" (wouldnt you agree?) i think this should be in the cheering/venting section....


that said eric byrnes is VERY streaky and is tough to own in h2h leagues. in roto, hes a nice "platoon" player you can mess around with during streaks

ok im new to what belongs where

my question is do any of you think a 30 yr old in his 3rd-4th real year of playing can blossom into the stats i put up above? Arizona much nice ballpark than Oakland and he's in that period where hitters become studs just started a little late. So does anyone think he is a top 25 OF which those numbers would make him?

the problem is he goes on a crazy hot streak and when he cools down, its quick and those who pick him too late up are wondering why he isnt performing. also, because he isnt very good against righties, he platoons with davannon and sits a lot of games. i guess if you have a spot, you can spot start him against lefties.

He absolutely destroys lefties. He has been hitting pretty well against righties this year, too. .271-9-24 in 170 ABs.

He also showed this ability with Oakland in 2003 and 2004. He stole 17 bases with the A's. (That must be some Billy Beane-era record.) Last year, he was swapped all around the league.

I'd say .290-80-25-70-20 is not outlandish.

In the past, Byrnes has been streaky.....although this year he has been very much consistant. He has been playing everyday as of late, and been hitting all pitching and playing great CF. WE rememner his all star year in Oakland, and he has the tools to be an excellent day in-day out option. I own him in a 12 team dynasty league, and he has made me smile..........
