Paul Byrd Is Traded!Woooo..
I love Paul Byrd.. He's a great guy.. But this is the move that needed to be made.. Much like Dellucci, but we won't cry about that right now.
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Indians have dealt Paul Byrd to Boston in exchange for a Player to Be Named Later or Cash.
Not sure who is paying the salary. If the Red Sox want to give up a better prospect in exchange for the Indians paying the rest of his salary, then I'm not sure Mark Shapiro or the Dolan's will care. If not I wouldn't expect the player to be anything special. Either way, they needed to clear a spot up and let the young guys go at. Aaron Laffey is ready.
Will Dellucci go next? I hope so, we'll see in a few weeks when Vic, Hafner and Barfield are all due back.
