Whiffing wonders - flipping a Marlon Byrd

Anyone who has read my stuff for a while understands that I am not fond of strikeouts. I have often jousted against the notion that an out is an out is an out. I respectfully disagree. Strikeouts give the batter no opportunity to have anything other than an out where a batted ball will give the batter a 30% chance to get on base. One of the few scenarios where a strikeout is better...

Phillies Rumors: Marlon Byrd asking price 'too high'

Vesting Options Killing Phillies Trade Prospects

Outfielder Marlon Byrd has been perhaps the Phillies’ finest offensive contributor not named Chase Utley in 2014. Leading the Phillies in homers and slugging, Byrd, at age 36, has remained healthy for the entire season and is putting up numbers comparable to those he had in his turn-back-the-clock 2013 all while being signed at a reasonable contract. Byrd should be an easy flip...

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.

WATCH: Marlon Byrd breaks his bat on a swing and miss

Marlon Byrd had one of the oddest scenarios occur that you will ever see on Sunday as his Phillies took on the Mets. Byrd came to the plate in the 6th inning of a 2-2 tie ballgame and swung and missed on a pitch from Jonathan Niese, and during the swing he somehow broke his bat. The bat literally made no contact with the ball, but somehow broke into two pieces. We are very confused...

Philadelphia Phillies: Breaking down the outfield

The Philadelphia Phillies outfield could definitely improve after last season, and health will be a big factor in that.  Domonic Brown will continue to start in left field after finally having his breakout season last year, missing only 23 games.  Marlon Byrd mans right field after returning to Philadelphia this offseason, but he’s 36 and may not match his career year from last...
