Mets traded Marlon Byrd on Marlon Byrd t-shirt night

Well, this is going to be a little awkward.

Tonight is “Marlon Byrd t-shirt night” at Citi Field, except the Mets just traded Byrd and John Buck to the Pirates.

If the Mets change the “6″ to a “43″ on the back of all the shirts they could pretend it’s “Paul Byrd t-shirt night” and honor the retired right-hander who threw 68 innings for them in 1995/1996. Hey, just trying to troubleshoot here.

        Oh God, will you give it a rest? What do you want Alderson to do, schedule the deal for a day that’s more consistent for the marketing department?

        Man, listen, if I wanted facts, I’d write to my Federal Government and local romance novel of the month clubs.

        Sheesh!

    Oh how I wish that somebody was there to take a picture of the marketing and promotion guys faces when the trade was announced.

    Almost as bad when Terry Francona gave Scott Rolen a Sunday afternoon off. Problem was it was Scott Rolen t-shirt day, and back then the Phillies didn’t draw, and most kids were there for the giveaway.

      I believe the Phillies also traded away Pence last year, a week before a Hunter Pence bobble head giveaway.
