thats pretty silly. byrnes has been moved around so much and you can throw 2005 out the door. he was traded twice within 2 weeks. no one would be comfortable in that situation. AND his career avg, obp, and ops are all very similar to torii's. and personally, i think he has better potential for sb's. arizona's a young aggressive rising team. i like his lineup around him.
if torii goes to texas i think his value takes a hit unless they sign another hitter or two. they wouldnt have any protection behind him (asusming they hit m young 3rd and torii 4th).
both players are very similar, i just have a preference for byrnes i guess.
Jason Kubel is considered protection? You put Torii in that bandbox and he goes .280-30-100 easy. Quentin will be a better player in his prime than Byrnes and the Backs gave the money to Eric. 1st bad move they made in a while. Career year for both, but Byrnes can't carry Torii's jock.
