What the Marlon Byrd suspension means for the Cleveland Indians

The MLB has suspended Marlon Byrd, again. This time though, he was hit with a full-season 162 game ban. This happens to be much larger than the 50 game suspension he received as a free agent in 2012. The news comes as a shock and disappointment to the Cleveland Indians organization. What makes this news hurt worse for Cleveland is the fact that Byrd had been producing consistently...

PEDs, Financial Incentives, and the Problems They Create

Yesterday, MLB announced that Marlon Byrd has been suspended 162 games for failing a second PED test, which will effectively end his big league career. As a guy who turns 39 in a few months, he was already nearing the end of his days as a productive player anyway, and with a chunk of the suspension carrying over to next season, it’s unlikely any team will offer him a contract this...

On the inequity of the 2015 NL Wild Card Game

By Dave Cameron The Wild Card races in the American and National Leagues could hardly be more different. Over in the AL, only four teams are playing at a level that would normally make them contenders, but the rules require that a fifth team qualify for the postseason, so one team from a remarkably mediocre group is going to get rewarded with a playoff spot even though they may...

However, the Phillies do need to continue their rebuilding process after trading Jimmy Rollins earlier this month, and outfielder Marlon Byrd would be the easiest player for them to move. The Phillies...
