Byrd Available?

For those of you that watched Wang's quest for a perfect game this afternoon, you heard Ken Rosenthal report that the Yankees recently asked us about Paul Byrd. Obviously, we won't have any interest until we decide Lee and Westbrook are completely healthy, but I do wonder if a July trade might be discussed (as long as Sowers can start striking out some hitters). I can't imagine us wanting someone like Kyle Farnsworth, and I doubt they'd want to give up Scott Proctor, but I wonder if a three team deal is a possibility. Byrd could go the Yankees, Melky could go to Team X, and Team X could send us a setup man.

Having six starters is great, but I'd rather have a dominant bullpen for August and beyond. I think we would have no problem making it through the last two months with our top four and Carmona backed up by Miller and Slocum.

So does anybody have any ideas? Can you think of a team who would give up a reliever for Melky? Houston (Lidge/Qualls/Wheeler)? Texas (Otsuka)? Someone else?
