For a while, it looked like Terry Collin’s weird lineup choice going into the evening would actually work when Marlon Byrd ripped a three-run home run in the bottom of third. Perhaps unsurprisingly, however, the Mets would fail to score again the rest of the night and could not stage a comeback after Jay Bruce hit a go-ahead home run off Shaun Marcum in the sixth. To be fair to...
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...
Marlon Byrd with a walk-off, two-run single and the Mets win it, improving to 4-2 on the year. Our Byrd came through, but let’s hear from the fans from another type of bird.

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...
If you don’t know about the Mets’ much maligned and scrutinized outfield, then you are no Mets’ fan or you fell off the face of the earth-or both.
In the quest to piece together a solid, yet unspectacular outfield, the Mets are getting good springs from Collin Cowgill and now as of late Marlon Byrd. After hitting a three-run home run against the Venezuelan national team yesterday...
When your team has an outfield situation as desperate as the Mets’ is (Andrew Brown is going to compete for a starting job after having trouble staying on Colorado’s major league roster in 2012), any new is good news. Yesterday, that good news came in the form of 11-year veteran Marlon Byrd signing a Minor League contract.
#Mets have signed Marlon Byrd to a minor league contract...
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...
CHICAGO—The Cubs are looking to move CF Marlon Byrd according to the Chicago Sun Times. Byrd, 34 is in the final year of his contract and could be traded to interested teams such as the Nationals for pitching. The transaction could happen as early as before Opening Day.
