MARLON BYRD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers' Justin Turner a different hitter since working with Marlon Byrd

Justin Turner may owe his renaissance as a hitter to Marlon Byrd. While the two were with the Mets in 2013, the veteran Byrd passed along a bit of advice to the young Turner about getting in front of the ball at the plate:“The old saying is ‘stay back stay back stay back.’ Well, he was talking about doing the opposite,” said Turner. “Not backing the ball up, going out and...

Justin Turner, Marlon Byrd, and an Education in Hitting

Justin Turner isn’t Babe Ruth — mostly because only Babe Ruth is Babe Ruth. Of late, however, Turner’s numbers have been Ruthian in nature. Consider: since the beginning of 2014, only two hitters in all of baseball have been better than Turner, pound for pound. Two hitters! All this after the Mets released him. Turns […]

DraftKings: The Mookie Monster and Big Byrd

A full slate of games today has me thinking of sunny days and that everything is going to a-okay. Don't let Oscar tell you otherwise, he's a grouch that'll just slam the lid in your face. Stroll on over to Justin El-Morneau's World and take a shot against Clayton Kershaw. Normally, I would be raving non-stop about how great Kershaw is, and how I am going to start him. But, there...

Report: Phillies, Reds were close on Marlon Byrd deal

It’s been a quiet offseason in Philadelphia, which might be a good thing when you consider some of the ill-advised moves that Ruben Amaro has made in the past. 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 and Reds were reportedly...

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. When Byrd signed his current deal back in November...

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...
