Take a moment, flash back to June 1, 2016 . Marlon Byrd was suspended. 0:51 On August 1, 2016 the Indians acquire Brandon Guyer from the Rays for prospects Nathan Lukes and Jhonleider Salinas. The Indians made the move in hopes that Guyer would help hit left handed pitching , since Lonnie Chisenhall can hit right handed pitching but struggles against lefties. Guyer is going to take the spot of Almonte since Almonte is unable to compete in the 2016 Playoffs due to this season’s suspension. Would Guyer be a member of the Cleveland Indians if Byrd had not been suspended?I think for the time being we can thank Marlon Byrd because without him we would not see Naquin as often as we do now and we might not have ever seen Guyer in an Indians uniform.Just some food for thought for Indians fans, feel free to give me your thoughts on Twitter @PaytonVince . Payton Vince Related Topics2016 MLB PlayoffsAbraham AlmonteBrandon GuyerCleveland IndiansLonnie ChisenhallMarlon ByrdMarlon Byrd SuspensionMichael BrantleyPEDsTyler NaquinTyler Naquin inside-the-park walk off homer Byrd was eventually hit with a 162 game suspension with this being his second time testing positive for PEDs . Some thought that this could be terrible news, because at the time the Cleveland Indians had Abraham Almonte serving an 80-game suspension already for PEDs and added another player, this time for a whole year with Byrd. The big question at the time was, who can we play in outfield now? If you have a moment to dwell on the past, we can do that. If Byrd would have played the whole season, played everyday, and WAS CONSISTENT he could have hit around 23 or 24 homers and had 90-95 RBIs , this is only estimation. The big key to this situation would be if he was consistent and at 39 years old that would have been difficult to do so, and remember that Byrd did not play everyday while he was apart of the team.If Marlon was not suspended what are the odds we would have seen Tyler Naquin in an Indians uniform as often as we have? On May 17 of this season when Michael Brantley came back, Naquin was designated for assignment to make room for Brantley. Naquin played June 2, the following day after Byrd was suspended, and has been with the Indians since then. If Byrd had never been suspended it is doubtful you would see Naquin play as often as he is now. If Byrd wasn’t suspended what are the odds we see moments like this from Naquin?

The Pace Invitational Powerlifting Meet was held at Pace High School on Saturday, Jan. 25.Head Port Isabel High lifting coach Joe Gonzalez spoke Wednesday of his team’s results. Only eight competitors made the trip, four girls and four guys, as some students who are expected to compete this season had conflicting obligations.Twenty five teams from schools throughout the lower Rio Grande Valley were on-hand, almost all from Class 6A, which includes the largest schools with the highest number of available athletes for a given sport. Port Isabel was one of only three 4A schools that showed up with a team.“The only other schools in our class were Rio Hondo and La Feria,” Coach Gonzalez said. “I told the kids, ‘Don’t compare yourselves to the 6A (lifters) – compare yourselves to the 4A schools.’ Against them we did pretty well.”“I didn’t take the whole team,” Gonzalez reported. “Some kids had other functions – I had some girls who had a mariachi competition, and some had a tennis tournament.”Below are the results for each team member who competed at the Pace meet:Girls: Eva Gomes, 17th in her weight class; total lift – 495 pounds. Franchesca Sandoval, 7th, TL-655 pounds. Vanessa Ybarra, 17th, 440 pounds. Jocelyn Padilla, 3rd, TL-740 pounds.Guys: Nelson Mejia, 165-pound division, 15th, TL-690 pounds. John Ray Martinez, 198 lb. div., 3rd, TL-1,225 pounds.; and Esai Camacho, 198 lb. div., 14th, TL-950 pounds. Juan Mireles, 220 lb. div., 16th, TL-985 pounds.The state is divided into regions and three Tarpon and Lady Tarpon lifters are included in the latest regional rankings for their individual weight classes. Jocelyn Padilla ranks 4th in her class, Vanessa Ybarra is ranked 10th, and John Ray Martinez ranks 3rd in the 198-pound division. All lifters are ranked only against lifters in the respective classes, according to school size.This Saturday Coach Gonzalez will take a larger team of lifters to a meet in Santa Rosa, where they will be competing only against teams from other Class 4A and 3A schools.“So we’ll have a bigger team and we should collect some medals this time.”Want the whole story?
