If you're upset that Eric Byrnes is here, that he is an Arizona Diamondback, don't blame him. Blame yourself. And Jeff Moorad. You - the casual baseball fan - you're the one back in 2007 who swore that you'd never go to a game again if the D-backs didn't resign him... Besides he got off to a great start, put up big numbers. Believe me, I heard from hundreds of you back in 2007. Admit it...you thought the somersaults were cool, didn't you casual-baseball-fan?

Dave Burns on KTAR.com. Thare's another quote worth repeating: "One Diamondback official - who shall remain nameless - had this look on his face the day the deal was announced. The kind of look a dad might have when his ex-wife buys their daughter a pony for her birthday. A look that said, "not my idea, I knew he was a career .261 hitter""
