Tim Byrdak Entrance Song Winner Is…

Thunderstruck by AC/DC

The first one to submit that was Paul Serzan so he will be receiving an autographed ball courtesy of Tim Byrdak. Congrats Paul!

I had a brief exchange with Tim last night and he was thankful for the volume of interest in the contest. We had 496 entries in the five days it ran. Many of you also left some great comments and well wishes for Tim which he appreciates.

Now on to the job of getting all those tough NL lefties out.

I personally would like to thank the Mets as well for supporting the contest. The fine people over in the PR department (Shannon, Jay, Ethan, etc.) were the reason we were able to make this happen on short notice.

I would also like to thank all the blogs, forums, and message boards that got the word out.

    weak. that’s about as generic as it gets. oh well. i’ll thinkin’ about surfin bird every time the dude comes in anyway.

    Yeah, I’m thunderstruck as well. Because I keep wondering why he’s being used beyond his abilities, which is to say, why has he faced so many RH hitters already this year. By my count he’s faced 8 LH batters limiting them to a .250 BA, while he’s faced 8 RH hitters, allowing one walk and 3 hits to go with a .429 BA against by RH hitters. I know he’ll have to face some right handed hitters, there’s no way around that, what with opposing skippers pinch hitting for the LH batter he would’ve faced and the occasional need for him to get more than one out. But so far he’s faced as many righties as lefties and his career numbers say that’s not the way he needs to be used. Yet, early in ST either Warthen or Collins (I cannot remember specifically) stated that he would be used as a cross-over type, facing both lefties and righties. Why would they do that when his career splits are so absurd (.290 BA for RH and .203 for LH)?

    This is also J.J.Putz’s entrance song

  6. Stu B

    Met relievers should worry more about getting hitters out and less about entrance music.

    w00t, I suggested this song for him too. My wife and I also had this as OUR entrance song at our wedding!
