Marlon Byrd is officially a Cincinnati Red. The aging right - fielder gave Philadelphia a good season; however, many Philly Phans could have predicted this to happen once they sign Marlon to an atrocious deal. The two teams receive what they want. Philadelphia receives a young, talented pitcher, Ben Lively, a fourth round pick, while decreasing in age. Cincinnati receives a nice right - fielder or utility man who can platoon nicely in their outfield.
