Ex-Angel Paul Byrd Considers Retirement
Tim Brown reports that former Angel starter Paul Byrd is considering retirement:
An email checking in with Paul Byrd on Friday brought the following response – “Still thinking possible retirement or maybe a mid-season joining of a team with a need” – and maybe he was joking, or experiencing the trepidation that comes with a silent telephone, or is simply done, at 38 and potentially fighting health issues. My measured response – “Huh? Seriously? Retire? I’m surprised.” – brought no answer. About three weeks ago Byrd declined an arbitration offer from the Red Sox, so maybe he is serious.
