Sun Byrnes Away Delusions?

From Baseball Prospectus' The Week In Quotes:
"The sun was bad, but was it any worse than it's been the last 10,000 years? I'm gonna say no."
— A’s outfielder Eric Byrnes, on losing a ball in the sun, barely catching the next one hit his way, then watching two more fall in for doubles.
He may not have a firm grasp on the ball but he appears to have a firm grip on reality.

Aaaaahhhh reality.

Always dangerous in an outfielder.

Especially one as goofy as Byrnes.

Although I must say, having watched him up close a little, that he does seem to genuinely enjoy himself out there.
