I thought this was interesting from Sporting News on Overbay:

The only way he's still available in your league is if everyone fell asleep at the wheel.

Does everyone feel this way? Should he be picked up right away?

yea really, he's in my FA pool in one league, but I have Casey and Helton, and no thow away slots to try to trade one around. But noone has touched the guy while others like Uribe, Pena and Cameron got snached up at the first sign of good stats. hunh

I feel like i'm this guys pimp but heres some more interesting info on him - some are real old - but kinda fun to read
101 RBIs! OVERBAY SETS LEAGUE RECORD

Lyle Overbay was named The Pioneer Baseball League MVP for 1999. Hailing from Centralia, Washington, Lyle graduated from the University of Nevada. He played right field in college and led the Big West Conference in hits, runs, and RBIs.

While playing first base for the Missoula Osprey this season, wearing jersey #35, Lyle Overbay led the League in doubles (25), extra base hits (44), and runs batted in (101). With those 101 RBIs, Lyle set a new Pioneer League short-season record, surpassing the Medicine Hat Blue Jay's Jay Gibbons's 98 RBIs in 1998. According to Howe Sportsdata, Lyle also set the all-time, short-season Minor League record for RBIs. Congratuations Lyle!

Note: only 80 some games!

The Prospect Report -- Top 10 Prospects (2003)
4. Lyle Overbay, 1B
HT: 6-2 WT: 210 Bats: L Throws: L 2003 AGE: 26 on 1/28/03

The Skinny: Overbay kept on hitting in 2002, finishing second in the PCL in hits, RBIs and batting average, yet saw his career minor league average drop to .345 after four pro seasons. His 19 home runs was a career high, and he led his league in doubles for the second straight season. Overbay just hits everything, lacing line drives all over the park with a quick bat and excellent mechanics. Some scouts would like to see him sacrifice some average in return for greater power. He lost some patience in 2002, walking 25 fewer times than the year before. Defensively, he's acceptable.

2003 Outlook: With the trade of Erubiel Durazo, Overbay comes to camp as the favorite to nail down the starting first base job. He's drawn numerous comparisons to his likely backup, Mark Grace, but he'll need to improve his patience at the plate to become that type of offensive player, and he'll never match the veteran defensively.
