Paul Byrd coming to Boston.

Found this one out by following the livechat on MLBTR.com. 

Byrd has averaged just under 6 IP per start, or for those scoring at home, more than Clay Buchholz. Byrd could be available to start probably Thursday or Friday. Would it be that strange to see him start opposite Roy Halladay instead of Buch on Friday night?

From a baseball perspective, this makes sense. Byrd is a better option for right now than Buch. The Sox will send the Clevelands a PTBNL or cash later this year.
