On the inequity of the 2015 NL Wild Card Game

Traded or not, Marlon Byrd is a good comeback story

I mentioned a couple weeks ago how it is almost a guarantee that Marlon Byrd will be traded. With the Winter Meetings just two days away, it could happen very soon. Before he goes, I think it is important to look back at a player with a pretty remarkable comeback story.
