Marlon Byrd's Not Walking Through That Door

The Red Sox designated Marlon Byrd for assignment after last night's game. The move clears a roster spot for Daisuke Matsuzaka, who comes back off the DL today to face the Nationals.

Byrd will likely refuse a Pawtucket move and hook on with another MLB club. Last night, Byrd pinch-hit in his final Red Sox appearance, popping out to first.
