He was okay, but Greg Mcmichael is better. However, Byrd did event his first all-star game in 1999. Just FYI

The funny thing about him is that he never really got to be a big star,yet he is a veteran. But he never really pitched badly because if you look in the record books with the Mets he had a 2-0 record for the Mets in 1995.

Byrd is currently 7-2 for a Kansas City team that only has 16 wins. He accounts for 44% of their wins. That is nuts. But this follows Byrd's pattern. Start off great with your new team, and then fall apart. Byrd's biggest problem with the Mets was injuries, but he never pitched for the Mets like he's pitching now for the Royals.

He was the last guy thrown in on the first Burnitz trade and ended up being the best of the bunch. Hard to believe he was the hot ticket at the last trade deadline. I think he's the top free agent now. Hard to believe he was so good with KC this year. I can't really see him being that good again.

When the Phillies traded him, Byrd said something along the lines of, "There was the Mike Schmidt Era and the Steve Carlton Era. Today's the end of the Paul Byrd Era."

All I remember about Byrd from the 1996 team is that whenever Byrd came in the game, Jerry DiPoto came in three minutes later with runners on base.

It's been a decade since Paul Byrd was a Met. He now has an 80-70 lifetime record at age 34, and if he keeps chipping away for two or three more seasons at his normal pace, he'll make 100 wins for his career. I remember calculating once that only 7% of pitchers who have hurled in the majors reach that plateau. I sure wouldn't have thought Paul had a legit chance to join that company. He was by no means bad as a Met, he was just a modest middle reliever.

Paul is someone who I could have never predicted to have lasted into 2009 and still be effective.

Saw Paul pitch in Toronto in late August as a Red Sox and had a good outing in a win over the Jays. Gave up home runs to Alex Rios and Lyle Overbay, but the Red Sox had too much offensive firepower for them to lose that night.
