Bye, Bye, Byrdie

It’s official, Marlon Byrd has been traded to the Boston Red Sox.  In return the Chicago Cubs will receive 25 year old right-handed pitcher Michael Bowden and the ever famous, player to be named later.  The Cubs will pay most of Byrd’s remaining salary, which is $6.5MM.  Bowden, who played High School baseball at Waubonsie Valley in Aurora was drafted 47th overall in 2005.  We don’t yet know what this means for the Cubs going forward.  Is it Brett Jackson time right now, or will we have to wait for him to patrol CF in Wrigley a little bit longer.  As more becomes known we will let you know.

Thanks for Reading,
Mark
