Marlon Byrd, OF
MMO Player of the Week!
The Mets had a dismal week out there over the last seven days, having played only four games due to multiple rain outs. Unfortunately, all but one game ended with a check in the Loss Column. It might have been an even worse week for the Amazins’ if not for our player of the week, Marlon Byrd!
Byrd left the yard twice over the course of the...
The Mets are currently playing around where a lot of fans and baseball people expected them to be playing this time of the year.
They sit fourth in the NL East, ahead of only the Marlins – who could have one of the worst teams in the last ten years – 12.5 games out of first place, ten games out of wildcard contention.
It’s still only the first half of the season and you never...
Byrd’s the word these days for the Mets, as their veteran offseason signing continues to produce at a level far beyond what anyone expected.
Last night, Marlon Byrd struck again and this time he hit not one, but two home runs in the Mets 10-1 rout of the Washington Nationals.
Better still was the fact that Byrd predicted he’d hit two homers before the game during batting practice...
Marlon Byrd maintained his mastery of Dan Haren with a pair of home runs, and the New York Mets broke a four-game losing streak by pounding the Washington Nationals 10-1 on Wednesday night.

It hasn’t happened often this season, but tonight the Mets received strong pitching from Dillon Gee and top-to-bottom hitting to rout the Washington Nationals, 10-1. It was just the third time this year the Mets scored in double-figures.
GEE: Another strong start. (AP)
ON THE MOUND: Gee was again superb to beg the question: Why should he be moved from the rotation to make room...
Most of the attention concerning the Met outfield the past few weeks has gone to Jordany Valdespin, both for his character and his play on the field. However, there has been one player who has very quietly got on a roll, and may be able to plug a hole in the still-fluctuating outfield: Marlon Byrd.
Byrd captured the attention of Mets fans and earned himself a spot on the roster with...
Let’s face it: We all know that this Mets’ outfield is not ideal whatsoever. If this team is going to go anywhere above 4th place in the NL East, somebody in the outfield needs to step up and be a reliable, everyday player. Many people believe that Colin Cowgill is primed for a breakout season, and I agree with these claims to a certain extent. However, if there is anyone on...
Old friend Marlon Byrd just got nailed big time. According to the MLB's Twitter Feed, the recently released outfielder just got suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. He tested positive for tamoxifen, which is an estrogen blocker and is used to mitigate steroid side-effects (accoring to ESPN's TJ Quinn)
So it's not positive...
