Colodar - The Red Sox made a decision to keep Darnell McDonald temporarily instead of Marlon Byrd because of defense, running, and a history of being effective in platoons. All of this is temporary because Ross should be back on 6/19. They are not going to keep Byrd around when Nava is switch hitting, has better offensive numbers, and is making MLB minimum. Podsednik / McDonald can fill in in CF until Ross is back, and some combination of Ross, Sweeney, and Pods can cover until Ellsbury is back. The one thing going right for the Red Sox this year is that they have developed or come up with quality OF pieces. They actually are going to be squeezed and forced to keep Kalish in the minors (where he is tearing things up on rehab). Even Gonzalez has looked OK defensively in right (not saying his bat is OK).
Byrd would be a nice fit here if we give up on Nady and want to play Moore full time in Syracuse.
