Eric Byrnes wants to be a Chicago Cub and the Cubs should give him the chance. On a XM radio interview, Chad Tracy said his good friend and former Dback teammate Eric Byrnes wants to be a Chicago Cub. He went on to say the Cubs are his first choice and he is very jealous of Tracy because he signed a minor league deal with the Cubs. He even asked him to put in a good word for him to the front office.
The Cubs need to sign Eric Byrnes, period! If he wants to play here then sign him to a minor league deal with a invite to Spring Training. Have him battle it out with Fuld, Colvin, and Snyder for the 5th outfielder spot. It is a Win-Win situation! Byrnes is a good defensive player, has a decent bat, and is a gamer. For those reasons alone they should sign him!
