Marlon Byrd to the Seattle Mariners?

Veteran Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Marlon Byrd has a no-trade clause that could prevent him from being traded to four teams. The Seattle Mariners are one of those teams. So the idea that Byrd could find himself traded to the Pacific Northwest doesn’t make a whole lot of sense on the surface.  That’s just on the surface.
