YearComment
2010 Eyre missed much of 2009 with a calf injury, and his low ERA and FRA (2.17) belied weak peripherals. His strikeout rate took a nosedive and his walk rate surged, both of which suggest that he is running out of gas at 37 years old. He needed surgery to remove loose bodies in his elbow after the year ended, and he has hinted that he may retire if the Phillies don't come calling one last time. His surface numbers might attract several other suitors. One of the better personalities in the game, for a modest stipend he's certainly worth employing in a secondary situational role.
2009 Frustrated by what they were seeing from their alternatives, and aware of how much they were counting on Romero, Gillick moved to add a token veteran to stock second lefty role. Their Eyre elicited, the Phillies liked what they saw from him having Cubby groin woes behind him so much, they gave him a $2 million extension to keep him in their employ for '09.
2008 Eyre has always had some trouble with control, but not to the extent that he did last season when he walked 5.2 men unintentionally per nine innings, his highest figure in years. Given Eyre's BABIP marks over the last two seasons, that increased walk rate may be indicative of a pitcher who is afraid to work in the strike zone for fear that he'll get creamed. Eyre did improve some in the second half of last season, but by that point he'd been demoted to mop-up work, and his very appearance in the ballgame was a signal for the Wrigley faithful to drink up, head for the exits, and beat the crowd to the Cubby Bear.
2007 In four years, Eyre`s platoon split has gone from strong against lefties (making him a nifty LOOGY) to strongly bass-ackwards. The conventional wisdom for hitters is that they`re done when they can`t recognize the curve ball anymore, which makes sense (their eyes are going), and tends to show up in their platoon splits. It`s tough to find an analogous mechanism for pitchers to decide what kind of significance to attach to Eyre`s disappearing split, but however valuable he`s been these last couple of years, PECOTA`s expecting Eyre to revert to the pedestrian form he displayed before earning his big contract.
2006 Eyre was second in the majors in Adjusted Runs Prevented and also second in inherited runners stranded, so his was truly one of the best relief seasons of 2005. This was largely because he seems to be figuring out how to get righties out. Right-handed OPS against Eyre by year: 2002: 831, 2003: 804, 2004: 759, 2005: 609. He`s not a LOOGY anymore. He`s a former starting pitcher, so we probably shouldn`t be too surprised. Still, the contract the Cubs gave him, worth as much as $11 million over three years, is quite a bit of scratch to bet on a player with just one outstanding season in his career.
2005 A LOOGY well suited for the role, Eyre has held lefties to a .219/.281/.327 line the last three years; righties have teed off at a .293/.380/.423 clip. Eyre and Brower were sixth and first in the NL in appearances, a function of Felipe Alou's always heavy reliever usage and both pitchers' lopsided, get-him-out-of-there-fast profiles than any innate ability.
2004 Eyre has turned out to be an excellent situational lefty. He's neutralized Ieft-handed hitters (.224/.297/.302 over the past three years), and at least keeps his head above water against righties when he has to face them. We have mixed feelings about the two-year, $2.45 million contract he signed with the Giants this off-season. On one hand, relief pitchers are so notoriously flaky, injury-prone, and replaceable that it's easy for a multi-year deal to go bad-witness Jason Christiansen's three-year, $6.8 million contract. On the other hand, unlike Christiansen's deal, Eyre's is for a small enough sum that the risk is pretty low.
2003 Another of Brian Sabeanís mini-coups in 2002. After suffering through Aaron Fultzís ineffectiveness for the first half of the year, the Giants were desperate for another lefty out of the pen to go with Chad Zerbe. For the cost of a waiver wire claim, Sabean nabbed a good one in Eyre, who gave them solid work down the stretch and during the postseason. Signed by the Giants to a one-year deal, he has a key role in the pen at least until Christiansen returns, and possibly beyond that.
2002 Not even Buck Martinez needs four left-handers in the bullpen, so Eyre spent last summer sampling Finger Lakes wines and blowing away Triple-A hitters. This year, following Lance Painterís release, Eyre will relocate to the north shore of Lake Ontario. However, his outlook remains the sameóa slinger with good stuff and a wild streak that makes rent-to-own furniture a good idea.
2001 Scott Eyre was traded to the Blue Jays in November to give the Sox some roster space. What the Blue Jays plan to do with him is a mystery. Heís their fourth left-handed reliever behind Pedro Borbon, Dan Plesac, and Lance Painter. All three of those guys are situational types, while Eyre throws hard and could be handy in long relief. Heís looking at another fun summer mailing postcards from some very familiar cities around the International League.
2000 Eyre has good velocity for a left-hander, but his control has never been good enough for him to be a one-out specialist. If the Sox don't pick up a veteran, he has a shot to be the second left-hander behind Jesus Pena. He would be valuable if used in long relief.
1998 Acquired from Texas for Esteban Beltre, Eyre lost the í95 season to a bad elbow. After coming back, it hadnít robbed him of too much velocity. He was named Pitcher of the Year in the Southern League, and is almost certain to be in the Soxí rotation in í98.
1997 After missing most of í95 to injury, Eyre is somebody the Sox are watching carefully. Despite pitching in Birmingham, a great pitcherís park, he didnít put up outstanding numbers. He had an AFL assignment and was lit up.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your #1 target as the Phillies' LOOGY, free agent or otherwise?
(Bill Baer from Philly)
Dennys Reyes. Oh wait, nevermind. Scott Eyre still retired? How about the JC Romero from 2007? I think Joe Beimel would be a good fit. I'd also take a flier on Ron Mahay. Realistically, I'd be more comfortable forgoing the idea of a LOOGY and just building a solid overall bullpen. And as iffy as Romero looked last year, he still finished 2nd to Boone Logan in my 2010 LOOGY Awards, which measured the numbers lefty batters produced against a lefty specialist, relative to how those same batters performed against all other lefty pitchers. Maybe bring him back at a bargain price. (Eric Seidman)
2009-11-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, do you think Manuel should have left Madson in for the ninth last night? Even if Lidge doesn't give up a run in the top of the ninth, the pitchers' spot is due up first in the bottom of the inning, so at most Lidge was going to pitch one inning. After that, the Phillies would had to have relied on Chad Durbin, Scott Eyre and company.
(philsfan from NYC)
Absolutely. He had no reason to take Madson out, and going to Lidge--whose "comeback" is fictional--actively damaged the Phillies' chances.

It would have been comical to see Phil Coke and Chad Durbin pitching in a tied World Series game. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, Will. We met at your birthday pizza feed in NYC. I owe you an email pursuant to lots of things we talked about there, but first, a Cubs trade question: Do you hear anything about the Cubs wanting to do any roster tweaking at the deadline?
(Dave from Delaware)
I think I remember you. Lots of fuzzy memories. Cubs are hoping to deal from strength -- Scott Eyre is one of those "Plan B" names out there for some pens -- and Felix Pie is drawing some interest. Nothing big, but a tweak? Wouldn't surprise me. (Will Carroll)
