Well it looks like the Rangers may have found a corner outfielder worth keeping. Marlon Byrd is on a career-tear, batting .486 in 10 games in June, including clutch hits in each of the last two Rangers game (one amazing come back, followed by an almost amazing come back).
IF he can stay healthy and consistent at even just 3/4ths his current pace, the Rangers should consider extending his contract for another year or two before he becomes a free agent again and finds greener (as in green dollars) pastures (ala GMJ). Now’s not the time to make that call – it’s just been 15 games – but at this point we Rangers fans have to get excited about whatever we can whenever we can.
