Marlon Byrd

A day after acquiring outfielder Austin Kearns, the Nationals signed fromer Orioles CF Luis Matos and waived CF Marlon Byrd.

The Matos/Byrd transactions appears to be a wash despite Byrd having done nothing to retain a job he has had ample opportunites to seize.  C'mon, Marlon Anderson beats him to playing time.

Not that Luis Matos did anything this season to deserve a job over a player with similar production.

The Nats have RF jam with Kearns and Guillen.  The signing of CF Luis Matos signals another move.
