Bye, bye Byrdie

The offensive struggles of Marlon Byrd are well documented, but are the Phillies sacrificing too much defensively by sending him to Scranton? He started slow last season, but he really looks like he doesn't have a clue up there. Bowa called his swing "robotic," which leaves you speed, and he only has two steals this season.
What happened to the power he showed in Reading? Until he gets something back, I'd rather see Ledee, who's swinging a hot bat.

i concur, but i also think that he's still hitting better than glanville and michaels, so i'm not sure he should have gone down over them, plus cocko had an awful year last year and never went down. are tehy already saying byrd is not a superstar?
