BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2004 Make enough mid-season trades for pitching and inevitably one of them is going to end up a turkey. There was nothing in Lloyd's record that suggested he would give up 29 hits in 64 at-bats, so chalk his time in Kansas City up to DIPS theory gone wild. Still one of the more reliable relievers in the game at retiring his left-handed brethren, he'll make a good NRI somewhere.
2003 Having been gulled once into coming to play for the man in Canada, Lloyd doesnít like playing for Jeff Loria much, and he was none too pleased when he was traded to the Marlins in the Cliff Floyd deal. He should save some indignation for his agents, who failed to submit a list of teams he couldnít be traded to within the deadline, negating his limited no-trade clause. Heíll surface somewhere, hopefully with a team that Loria canít possibly wangle a partial share of.
2002 Lloyd returned from an incredibly difficult 2000 to finish second in the NL in appearances. A year further removed from both the physical and emotional trauma, he should improve on last seasonís mediocre numbers. Though the Expos can pencil in up to 70 workmanlike innings from Lloyd, they still would have been better served to spend the $9 million they gave him as a free agent on something they really needed, like an intelligent marketing plan, or a new mascot.
2001 Graeme Lloydís wife died in the spring. Later, he had to have shoulder surgery, but heís supposed to be pitching in 2001. Thereís not much to say but that we wish him the best in getting his career back on track. I donít care who heís facing next, whether itís my favorite team or yours. I hope he wins.
2000 Lloyd is the player lost in the Clemens deal whom the Yankees missed most. Without him, they used fodder like Tony Fossas and Greg McCarthy as spot lefties, finally getting lucky when Allen Watson put together 30 innings that didnít suck. Lloyd signed a three-year deal with the Expos, a strange signing in that the Expos arenít at a place where they need to throw money at a spot left-hander.
1999 There's not much you can say about Lloyd; he gets left-handed hitters out, controls the running game and resists the urge to kill the kids who clean uniforms in the clubhouse. His stats will vary wildly, because in 40 innings a year anything can happen. But he'll contribute to many more winning teams.
1998 Status quo. Lloyd is a good left-handed reliever, effective enough against right-handers that he can be used in more than a one-batter role. Heíll have the four years you see above over and over again. A good team usually had at least one of these guys.
1997 The Life of a Lefty Specialist: Lloyd was going merrily along in Milwaukee, adding years to his pension as a nondescript player on baseballís faceless wonders. Then in the middle of his worst slump of the season, he was traded to New York, had five horrible appearances in the middle of the Yankeesí meltdown and was at the center of a damaged goods controversy. Then he disappeared, throwing just four well-scattered innings in September.

Cut to October, and our tall Australian becomes a hero, pitching well in the Division Series and ALCS, then brilliantly in the World Series, shutting down the Bravesí left-handed power. Go figure. Lloyd is the new Rick Honeycutt. Heíll have a job as long as he wants one.
1996  The other half of the occasional all-Aussie battery the Brewers can throw out there, when Nilsson's up to catching duties. Big gangly pitcher with an intimidating overhand curve.
