VETERAN OUTFIELDER Eric Byrnes has a simple
broadcasting philosophy: "To bring locker room talk minus the obscene
language onto television," he told the New York Post while moonlighting as
an ESPN and Fox postseason analyst. "Often, I think athletes are a little
too uptight and a little too scared to say something." Anxiety wasn't a
problem for Byrnes. His shaggy-surfer hair looked untouched by a stylist, and
his commentary (he declared "man love" for Derek Jeter) was edgy and
informative. When he retires, a promising TV career awaits.
