Many Thanks Marlon Byrd!

The Cubs finally have a big-game player!
Too bad Marlon Byrd wasn’t around for the playoff runs in ’07 & ’08.
By the looks of it, he wouldn’t have faltered against Arizona or Los Angeles.

Terrific at-bat against cross-town rival Matt Thornton!
Instead of being overly aggressive, Byrd draws a patient walk.
Then comes around to score a huge insurance run for the NL!

Byrd’s ninth inning spin & throw was the play of the game.
He read the situation perfectly, made a spot-on throw and saved the game.
It’s one of the best plays from a Cub all year!

Hendry took much heat for signing Byrd to a starting position…
and not just from Cubs fans, but from all around baseball.
Byrd, however, has been worth every penny, and then some!
