"Iím frustrated, Iím not going to get any sleep. I thought I had great stuff tonight. I just overthrew a little bit in the first inning, just couldnít get the outs. Against Greinke, you donít want to be down, 5-0. It just deflates the team. Real frustrated with myself. Iím glad I came back and threw some innings and helped the bullpen out, but Iím not really here to eat innings. Thatís not my job." -- Former Royal Paul Byrd, embarrassing any leftover members from The Byrd's Nest with his start
