I concur. Byrd was a catalyst to a lot of scoring rallies and clutch hits by the Pirates. Pittsburgh may miss him next year. On the other hand I heard the Phillies overpaid for him... $8M a year (I believe)? Too much for him. Hopefully this is another move by a big market, trying to throw mud on the wall and hope it sticks, that doesn't pan out.
