MLB "Didn't Grant Permission" To Byrd

The New York Daily News reports that MLB senior vice president Rob Manfred has made it clear that MLB never granted Indian's starter Paul Byrd permission to use HGH. "If he's saying that to create the impression that he was authorized or had permission, we have never granted a (therapeutic use exemption) for human growth hormone, ever(Rotoworld)".

If this is the case, it looks like Paul Byrd is gonna have quite a bit of trouble with the MLB and will have to face a few interviews. At first thought, I believed that Byrd really did have a tumor in one of his glands. Especially since he doesn't reach 90 mph on his fastball, you can't really blame him for using it to "cheat".
