The Red Sox get Byrd for a player to be named OR cash.
Byrd is 7-10, 4.53/1.30 this season for Cleveland. With Wakefield going on the DL, Byrd helps them keep a full rotation they can rely on. Really a pretty good, low-risk pickup for Boston. I'm not rooting for them, but this is the sort of thing a good team does, and with Longoria going down, they have a really good shot at overtaking Tampa Bay.
