    Re: Can Bard be the Sox' Pineda?

    It is very exciting.  Bard's conversion to starter has become the lynch pin of the 2012 season.  If he can't come through, the Sox might be scrambling hard for a semblance of a  rotation.  If he can be Pineda-esque, whew, thats about as solid a top 4 as there is in the AL.  And they can find one I am sure from the scrap heap/farm crew to hold down the 5 until Dice's return.  

    It is a big question mark, but a very exciting one.  If the gamble pays off, Ben C. looks good for holding his cards this off-season.  If not, he looks bad.

    Don't ever let a troll curb or reduce your optimism. Your feelings are legitimate / passionate / and hopeful because you are a fan / fanatic.

    In response to "Re: Can Bard be the Sox' Pineda?": Only where applicable...he's just an example of someone who's had success making the conversion from reliever to starter. Only an idiot would cite one example of a failure or a success and assume Bard will be either...

    I understand but he is one guy.  I think generally starters have an easier  transition to become relievers and not the other way around.  We'll see what happens.

    I know I will be blasted by the trolls for being optimistic but I actually feel really good about the rotation. The three headed monster of Beckett, Lester and Buch I feel will have really good years...I think they will all be pitching with a chip on their shoulder..especially Beckett and Lester with how last year ended and how they were fingered as the reason. All accounts say Buch is healthy and I think he is ready to make that jump to an ace. Bard is a wild card but he can be a very good wild card. I like our chances with him as our #4. Aceves in the #5 hole is also promising...how many #5 guys have what Aceves can bring to the table. Throw in Doubront, Tazawa and a mid season Dice K looking for a contract and I like the depth and that is assuming that Cooke, Padilla, Silva do nothing but mop up or pitch in Pawtucket this year. I am excited about the rotation...anxious about the bullpen though...Alex Wilson could be called on if things get bad in the pen and if he can step up I think the Sox could have a special year

    I agree Pesky.  Bard is a great unknown.  But, of course, he has great stuff and if the experiment works, hot dam, that is as solid a ro, one through four, as you are going to find in the A.L. ... well, maybe outside Tampa.  In any case, it will be fascinating.  Those who think that the Sox are desparate for pitching have to assume that the Bard experiment will not work.  Those that think the Sox rotation looks solid assume bard will work.  Good stuff.  Gonna be an interesting camp for sure.

    OK, Brandon Morrow and Derek Lowe are 2 more guys. You cited only one guy yourself, Joba Chamberlain, who is not very bright, and you made it sound like because Joba the cement head couldn't do it, there's no way Bard can...

    I said GENERALLY.  Also there is no evidence that Bard has any more intellect than Joba, so your response is just dumb. 

    Bard won't be a good starter and will go back to the pen, just you wait and see Homer.

    "Generally" is a great "go to word" when someone doesn't have any facts to back up a statement. Anyway, nice mini tantrum, and now I have no doubt that Bard "will not be a good starter" after your convincing argument....thanks for the incite Nostradamas

    The 3 starters you named didn't win the case for you.  Generally is a good term to use instead of naming every reliever who failed as a starter.  As for my convincing you, no problem.  Anytime.

    He's a good pitcher out of the pen and will go back there, it doesn't matter anyway as they are a 3rd or 4th place team this year.

    Haha, OK buddy, thanks for deep insight. I didn't plan on watching the Sox this year anyway, as I was planning on finishing my novel, titled, "Yankee fans who are still bitter over the way the 2004 season ended."
