Inning Ended

Patience rewarded:

Marlon Byrd's rocky tenure in Philadelphia has come to an end. Byrd was traded from the Phillies to the Washington Nationals for fellow center fielder Endy Chavez on Saturday, ending a relationship that soured quickly over the last 18 months.

I just came home for a few minutes and saw this. The article referenced above looks at the trade from the Phils' point of view mainly. Nothing's up yet on the Nationals' MLB.com site, and neither the Post nor the Times has posted the story on its web site, either.

I don't have time for much of a comment, so I'll come back to this when I have time. For now, I'll note that this trade can only be positive for the Nats. Clearly, Chavez had played himself into an intractable position this spring; accordingly, anything the Nats could get for him was a bonus. Byrd, the return, is talented enough to turn it around. And he's got the drop on Escobar in the race to force Wilkerson back to left field. Of course, Ryan Church will have something to say about that.

In closing, for now at least, I'll just say that, while Inning-Endy quite a bit more-than-earned his fair share of ripping, he gets something of a clean shot in an organization that could apparently use his help. (Though I wonder what in the world is wrong with Jason Michaels?) I'm assuming he won't be called on to be an everyday player, and he can be something of an asset if used appropriately.

So, good luck, Endy. And I was kidding when I said I wanted you to be consumed by a ball of fire. Sort of . . .
