Paul Byrd To Sit Out First Half

According to Ken Rosenthal, free agent starter Paul Byrd will sit out the first half of the season and then possibly join a contender.  Byrd said he had "nice, competitive" offers to play all year but wants to spend more time with his family.

It’s uncertain whether Byrd will draw interest midseason, but I imagine he will.  Remember how many teams were eyeing Freddy Garcia last year?  The Braves, Rays, or Marlins woud be Byrd’s preference.
