Page 294, Mitchell Report shows Paul Byrd lies are perfectly fine--he's in "the clear"

Page 293 on PDF, 245 on Report: Fascinating--even if he had this pituitary thing, he was continually in a superior physical state vs. his competitors due to a drug.
  • One of his shipments went to a "New York hotel" between 8/2002 and 1/2005--Footnote #466 of report, via Fainuru Wada/Williams.
Did Byrd get his "New York Hotel" shipment around his 8/8/02 game at Yankee Stadium as a Kansas City Royal? If so it was a losing effort for him. Baseball-Reference.
  • (Page 294 on pdf): "Byrd also reportedly said "the Indians, my coaches, and MLB have known that I have had a pituitary gland issue for some time,
  • but Rob Manfred in the Commissioner's Office denied that Major League Baseball had given Byrd or any other player a therapeutic use exemption for human growth hormone HGH)."
(Footnote #469, MLB Denies Byrd story, NY Daily News article by McCarron and Quinn, 10/22/07)
  • UPDATE: Byrd's "New York Hotel" shipment turns out to be in 2004 while his then team, the Braves, was playing the Mets:
"On July 22, 2004, according to the records, $2,000 worth of somatropin and syringes was shipped to Byrd at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, where the Braves were playing a series against the Mets. The Braves were scheduled to stay at the Grand Hyatt during that trip, according to media information distributed by Major League Baseball."
