2015 Reds, 1990 Score style: Marlon Byrd

Byrd is the word

The Reds recruited Marlon Byrd to fill the void in left field this year, replacing the overpaid Ryan Ludwick. Byrd’s performance, while certainly better than the unemployed Ludwick, has fallen short of expectations. After driving in at least 85 runs the past two seasons, he has driven in less than half that so far this year. He seems to be heating up lately—Marlon has gone yard 19 times—but he is still only batting .246. His WAR thus far is only 1.1.
