The Arizona Diamondbacks have given UCLA alum Eric Byrnes a three-year, $30 million extension.
Congrats to Byrnes on the big contract, and to Arizona for locking Byrnes up, even if the baseball analyst in me thinks this might be a bit much (but only a bit -- Byrnes is good).
Byrnes is having a great season, hitting .303 with 17 homers and 64 RBI.
Byrnes played at UCLA from 1995-1998.
Arizona is currently in first place, two games ahead of San Diego, four games ahead of the Dodgers, and five games ahead of Colorado.
