Key Ingredients: Lyle Overbay at the Bat

One person influential to the Brewers’ strong start was not even alive when the season began. When Eddie Overbay was born on April 17, his father, Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay, was hitting just .100 with a .480 OPS. However, since being reinstated from the paternity list, the elder Overbay has gone on a tear. The 37-year-old Washington native has compiled a six-game hit streak...

Re-Sign or Let Him Walk: Lyle Overbay

Lyle Overbay entered Spring Training as a member of the Boston Red Sox. He was cut by the team with about less than a week left in March, and was signed by the New York Yankees just a few hours later.

Yankees right in keeping Lyle Overbay

When the New York Yankees found themselves without slugger Mark Teixeira to play first base for the first two months of the season, they signed Lyle Overbay to fill in. The Boston Red Sox had just released Overbay at the end of Spring Training.

The end is near... or can Yankee super-clutch megahero Lyle Overbay play the outfield?

They've finished the trilogy of "Before Sunrise," the Ethan Hawk/Julie Delpy chick flick where the guy and girl decide they've got 12 hours to have a romance for the ages, so they go Stephen Hawking on each other, groping like geckos, while contemplating the meaning of Everything, including the difference between Eddie Money and Johnny Cash.And basically, that...

John completes the Lyle Overbay Homer Holler and, in doing so, for the first time ventures into the domain of 1980s alt-country music

During yesterday’s Hughesian victory over the untrimmed beards of Oakland, The Master revealed one long-awaited Homer Holler and fueled the growing Yankee “Adopt Lyle Overbay” campaign by adding a secondary component to the regular clobber-slobber.For starters, John ended speculation that Chris Stewart, an eternal backup catcher, would never receive his personalized Homer Holler...

Lyle Overbay is a pleasure to watch, and one of these days, we are really going to miss him

In March, when the Retrieval Empire cashed in its Raleigh Coupons and signed Lyle Overbay, the wheels in every blogsmith's mind began to rotate. We said to ourselves, "Let the hilarity ensue!"Lyle O-for-three... Lyle Overmatched... Lyle NoCanPlay... You don't get enough names like that. (We never imagined Chien-Ming Wang was on the way.) The best part was that...
