We let Timo go so maybe we need another bench player to play the outfield. This guy would fit if he would take a bench player's salary and he's a free agent. I like this guy a lot, and has no regard for his body in the outfield. Plus, playing for the A's, it would be nice to use their magic against them if we got him.

Byrnes platooning with Anderson in CF next year would be a dream come true. Seriously, that would be a really great acquisition that makes a lot of sense.

Couldn't agree more. I wonder why B-more just let him walk?

I don't know about a dream come true, but Mackowiak and Byrnes would provide some really good insurance for Anderson in case he doesn't hit coming out of ST.

Technically it's not a platoon since both bat right-handed. :wink:

Eric Byrnes? The same Eric Byrnes who publically called our fans "the worst in baseball" on a ESPN News Rant. I don't want him here, regardless of how much he can help, without publically apologizing. I know many of you couldn't care if he helps our club, but I'll never forgive him for that.

Yeah, I hate the guy and his constant sliding into first base.

He has no place on the white sox.

Thank you...he said we were the rudest fans he has ever seen, hell with him. I used to like him too, he could hustle, but he really put his foot in his mouth with that comment. He just didn't say "Sox fans" and move on, he went into detail why!

I thought that was hilarious coming from a player on a team where the fans think their in Europe watching a soccer game.

"Come on, I mean honestly babe, who brings a trumpet and drums to a baseball game?"

Also he will get a full time job somewhere between Boston, Florida, and maybe a return trip to Colorado.

but AJ is good.

Eric Byrnes is a poor man's Aaron Rowand. And he's coming off a terrible year where he hit .226 with 10 HR with 3 teams. He's hit lefties pretty well over his career, but overall... No thanks, I'll take my chances with the farm.

Agreed, we don't need another CF compareable to that of one in our farm system.

he is definitely a white sox type of player and would fit great in the clubhouse. put him in left field and move pod to center.... wow that would be just like we had rowand still out there. i wish there was some way we could suggest this to kenny. i would like to see what brian anderson could do for us, but you know what.... we know what byrnes can do and hes a great player. during that last baltimore series, buerhle and other sox players said that byrnes is a whitesox type player and they would love to have him.... what do you guys think?

I say, if you can get him, get him. We're going for another title, ya know!
