Byrd Awaits Calls, Says He's Ready To Pitch

According to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com, Paul Byrd wants to pitch and believes he can succeed, but says teams haven't been interested in him so far.  Since the draft has passed, the Red Sox will not receive a supplemental pick for Byrd, a Type B free agent.  Byrd sounds confident in his ability:

"I still feel like I can really, really help somebody out," he said.

He had a 4.60 ERA last year for the Indians and Red Sox. Tom Glavine, another free agent veteran, hasn't attracted much reported interest either, as teams have called on minor leaguers such as Antonio Bastardo, Vin Mazzaro and Aaron Poreda.
