Seems to be figuring it out...think he'll be a good bet for 20/20 next year with a decent average.

He's supposed to have more power though. I think the power is lacking because he had such a rough start and was just trying to make contact. It's obviously worked for his average. I bet he'll stay at .300 this year, give or take .010.

The Phillies and others have been touting Marlon Byrd for sometime now. It is no surprise that he's finally put it together.

I wish he would attempt more steals.

Byrd has been given the green light to steal now that he is the leadoff hitter and he's had two in the last week so I'm sure that he will be getting some consistently from here on out.
