Center fielder Eric Byrnes doesn’t slide into a base, he jumps at it the way some people dive into their backyard swimming pool.

Yeah, I know. Byrnesie is not always the most graceful player on the field. But he’s all out, all the time, which is why I trust him, why I root for him, and why, at least in part, the D’Backs are doing well.
Now…if only he would get moved from 2 to 5 in the lineup, his RBI total would go up fast. Someone batting .322 with 6 homers, 14 doubles and a triple should have more than 18 RBI.
