You know what I was thinking the other day? I just can't get enough of Eric Byrnes' wacky on-air personality. Well, apparently Fox was thinking the same thing. They've decided to place Byrnes in a Kayak in McCovery Cove with all the other yahoos during the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby:
Arizona Diamondback outfielder and MLB on FOX contributor Eric Byrnes may not have been selected to the National League All-Star roster this year but the Bay Area native is still heading to AT&T Park and may have the best seat in the house for all the festivities.I'll be honest that while I don't like Eric Byrnes' on-field play because he dives at any ball within ten yards of him whether it's easily catchable or he has no shot at it, I do like his baseball "analyst" personality. He really lightens up the atmosphere around Kevin Kennedy and that other tramp. That being said, I could think of nothing funnier than a home run flying over the right field wall and plunking Eric Byrnes right in his misshapen head. And I applaud Fox for creating that opportunity.
Byrnes joins FOX's All-Star Game broadcast team and will be stationed in a kayak in McCovey Cove during the game broadcast as he talks to fans and gives viewers the sights and sounds from outside one of baseball's most picturesque stadiums.
