I Know It Was Vintage Oswalt, Guys, But…
Eric Byrnes was 2-4 but he didn’t score any runs today. (I really don’t like him batting leadoff; can’t we have Jackson or Drew do that?) Can you guys do something about Byrnesie’s "runs scored" total? Please, D’Backs? Very Soon, please? Like tomorrow and Monday? He’s on the verge of some A,A’05 category busters here, and I would love to see him get them in the next two days.
Byrnesie needs 1 more R, 2 more hits, and 4 more RBI to surpass his A,A’05 totals in those categories. It would be so great if he could start the last two months of the season with those categories crunched. He’s already surpassed the totals for HRs, XBHs, 2Bs, SBs and TBs.
My birthday is July 31, but you don’t have to wait. I would welcome anything you can do Sunday to help Byrnesie continue burying A,A’05. He’s 2-6 lifetime v Roger Clemens and the two are both doubles. If he gets any more two-baggers off the Rocket, (or any other hits for that matter), it would be great if some of you guys drove him home, or were on base if he goes yard.
Oh, and Byrnesie, if there’s a situation tomorrow where Rocket decides he doesn’t want to deal with you, just let him give you first base. You only need 6 BBs to crunch that category and it would be nice if you took care of that by the middle of August.
