Have fun with that Chicago....
What a terrible signing.
The Cubs hope Byrd can fill their center field void. Byrd is a disciple of hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo, who also will be starting his first season on the north side after coming over from the Rangers.
The 32-year-old Byrd had a career year in 2009, hitting .283 with 20 home runs and 89 RBIs. It was his first major league season with more than 500 at-bats; putting up career highs in games played (146), home runs, doubles (43) and RBIs.
