Sirius Drafts Cliff Floyd to Its Fantasy Baseball Team

Monday, February 14th, 2011

You might remember Cliff Floyd from such fantasy baseball seasons as 2005, when you scoffed at the buddy who drafted the then-Met only to luck into a career-high 34 homers and your league’s title.

This season, perhaps Floyd can point you toward some similar values.

That’s because the man who played for eight major-league teams over 17 seasons — most recently the Padres in 2009 — kicked off his career as a fantasy host on Monday.

Floyd will sit behind the mic three days a week on Sirius XM Fantasy Baseball, which airs 2-5 p.m. Eastern and also counts former Mets GM Steve Phillips as a host.

“We all know that winning is the name of the game in fantasy baseball,” Floyd said in the press release. “I’m looking forward to helping our listeners sort through pitcher/batter matchups, stats and all the other things that factor into wins and losses so all those fantasy GMs can dominate their leagues.”

Floyd debuted with the Expos in 1993 and also spent time with the Marlins, Red Sox, Cubs and Rays, in addition to the aforementioned Mets and Padres.
