<p> Watching Paul Byrd put together a 2-0 post-season record with a 3.60 ERA for the Indians this month, we all remember the All-Star season he put in for the Phillies in 1999. With 15 high-ERA wins in 2007, Byrd looked poised to get a raise in the free agent market this off-season. </p>

<p>In 2003, Tommy John surgery put Byrd's career on pause, but he came back to pitch for the Braves, Angels, and the Tribe. However, his comeback apparently included a visit to the pharmacy in Florida, as <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs2007/news/story?id=3072845">reports have surfaced</a> that he purchased nearly $25,000 in HGH between 2002 and 2005 (Royals-Angels). </p>

<p>If the Indians beat the Red Sox in game 7 tonight, I'm sure we'll hear plenty about this in the World Series coverage. Niles was unavailable for comment. </p>
