Someone tell Jim Hendry his team sucks

Bobby Valentine raised an interesting point on the telecast tonight (I hated typing that): Why aren’t the Cubs shopping Marlon Byrd?

The Sprayberry High grad, adept at all three OF positions, would be a better fit for the Bravos than Ludwick or Willingham. Byrd, 33, missed some time this season after being hit in the face but has shown no ill effects since his return. He had four hits today, raising his BA to .314 with a .799 OPS.

Byrd, owed $5 million next year, will be a free agent after 2012.

  1. I would take Byrd as the best 2nd teir option. What are his splits, do you know?

  2. He’s got roughly the same BA — just north of .280 — against lefties and righties, with a little more power versus southpaws.

  3. Byrd’s gotten better with time. I’d take him in a heartbeat.
