Byrd and HGH connection


Paul Byrd's dream postseason run with the Indians has run into some problems.

The Cleveland Indians pitcher bought thousands of dollars of human growth hormone and syringes, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Byrd, who is 2-0 with a 3.60 ERA in the postseason this year, spent $24,850 on products from the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center between August 2002 and January 2005. The center has been targeted for illegally distributing performance-enhancing drugs, the report said.

Byrd pitched for the Royals, Braves and Angels in those years, going a combined 37-29. He struck out a career-high 129 batters with the Royals in 2002.

The Indians' 15-game winner reportedly bought more than 1,000 vials of growth hormone between 2002 and 2005.

In his 11 seasons, Byrd is 97-81 with a 4.35 ERA. He has pitched for seven teams
