Byrd Having a Great Spring

What is the first thing you notice when you click on the link below?  Well.. the first thing I noticed was the picture of Ed Wade signing an autograph.  Who in their right mind wants an autograph from Ed Wade??!??  I think I would rather have an autograph from Tommy.  Who is Tommy?  You can meet Tommy here at Boston.com. 

With Ed Wade out of the way, Marlon Byrd is, in fact, having a great Spring.  Thats something else you could get excited about!  I wouldn’t get too excited right away, its not even April.  Also, check out some great spring training pictures here.

With three more hits and three RBIs on Monday, Byrd boosted his average to .417 (10-for-24) with four doubles. Shane Victorino, the Rule-5 selection from the Dodgers, appears to be losing ground. He is hitting .174 (4-for-23). "You’re going to see it all season long," Byrd said, his smile wider than ever and his confidence soaring. "The swing is there."
