OK, back to the Braves… Bub, great post (#124). And I agree on Wren. People always want to point to Lowe and KK and say he’s a terrible GM. I think he’s been fantastic. And this trade, and how little we had to give up (sorry, Leah), and how many low salary guys make up the lineup allowing us to spend strategically in “big” splashes, just proves the point more.
Watching MLB Network and Eric Byrnes has the nerve to question whether Heyward is a top 3 RF. I guess if he had a empty Francoeur 30 hr 100 he would be great. I guess on base, defense and baserunning skills don’t matter.
Eric Byrnes brings VERY little to the table. The other night I was watching MLB network with Eric Byrnes on and my wife came into the room, looked at the TV and all but shouted, “oh my god, what is up with that guy’s hair?” That’s really all I think about now when someone mentions Eric Byrnes.
#125 is pretty hilarious. It’s hard to believe an organization as silly as the Marlins has fielded two championships in the last 20 years. Of the many, many indictments on the current state of the game, that team is one. Their uniform is another all by itself.
