Yankees Have Not Acquired Marlon Byrd By Jeff Todd | July 31, 2014 at 12:51pm CDT 12:57pm: Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that nothing is close, via Twitter. 12: 51pm: The Yankees have agreed to acquire Marlon Byrd from the Phillies, tweets Jim Bowden of ESPN.com.
got older by the day ends.
he’s replacing Ichiro so technically, got younger.
Comment of the day right here… haha.
Yeah but it’s still an upgrade. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera were their oldest players last year. I think they had pretty good seasons. And the Mets are asking a lot for the oldest SP in baseball in Colon. I’d also say there’s no argument that the oldest DH and oldest active closer (teammates) are 2 of the best in baseball still as well.
Age is completely irrelevant outside of multi-year/long contracts imo. Production outways it every time. Byrd’s option only vests with 600 or more PA in 2015, so that’d mean he was healthy all year. Not bad .
actually in right field they just got younger
How old can the Yanks get?
lol go for it
According to WFAN they didn’t have to give up much at all. Apparently a lowly rated infielder. Not Ref.
Ruben is awake!
Not sure about that..Cashman walked into his kitchen and took Byrd and stuffed a $twenty in the cookie jar…Ruben will notice it in the morning. August 1st.
only good part about this deal is no impact prospects are going to philly
Hey, at least they’re trying to improve, whereas the Red Sox lost about 4 wins today..
Like it matters this season.
Is this real bowden may have gotten it from fake sherman
There was a fake Sherman too? I knew about the fake Rosenthal.
Maybe there’s a fake Bowden too? That would explain most of his articles.
You win post of the day sir
.270 Avg 20 HRs 60 RBI 2 WAR
I’ll take that! He’s an upgrade in RF
The Yankees need to make 1 more move, a Starting Pitcher.
Jim Bowden is wrong 99.99 percent of time. This trade won’t happen. Huff’s dog had it first!
The last time Byrd was in the AL East worked out marvelously. The youth movement should work out great for the Yanks.
Thank goodness, now the Royals can’t make this move!
Yeah this was from a fake Sherman ha
Amaro has been telling teams all day that he wants their top three prospects in exchange for Byrd or any other player on his roster. If the Yankees got him for basically nothing, I smell collusion and something doesn’t appear right.
I think the top 3 discussions were only on hamels, the only guy with any real prospective trade value
Yankees promised Amaro a job after he gets canned in the offseason….that would be my guess haha
Pretty sure that was based on a fake tweet…
No other insider has reported it. Not sure i believe this.
Sherman just reported the Yankees aren’t close.
Dam, I was hoping Seattle would overpay for Byrd.
No trade. I’m sure this post will get removed soon
Ruben gets fleeced again!!!
He’s got to go
Fake Twitter account strikes again!!!!
Hopefully Ruben is included in the trade to New York
It’s a hoax I’m hearing.
Byrd is a great guy in the clubhouse. NYY will love him. Also solid player
just when you thought the phillies did something
I have a strong feeling it is a hoax, because if Philly traded him for next to nothing, Philly need a new GM, because the current one doesn’t have a clue what he is doing. He has told other teams like Seattle that it would take Walker, plus for Byrd and the Yankees grabbing him for a no name filler doesn’t make sense.
I wouldn’t give up much of anything for Byrd.
What they Rumored to give up wasn’t much of anything to begin with. Unfortunately all fake.
lol….gotta love Bowden basically retweeting the deal because he got it from fake Joel Sherman.
Great hoax– I love it!!
Brue Back is reporting Zack Wheeler for Asdrubal Cabrera
so they didn’t get him>?
Jim Bowden stealing a scoop from a fake Twitter account then trying to cover it up might be the story of the day.
