    D Bard's First Start Prediction Thread

    I'll start: mediocrity in game; hyperbole post-game.

    4 ER
    6 H
    3 BB
    4 K


    Your turn ...

    I predict 12 strikouts, 4 hits, one unearned run, and a 6-1 victory

    12 K's?  Is he going to strike out every batter he faces?  Exactly how many innings do you expect him to pitch?

    I hope he does way better than my prediction, but here it is:

    4 innings, 5 ER, 4 Walks, 90+ pitches

    Having said that, Drabek most likely will perform worse. I expect this to be a slugfest with the best bullpen winning the game....so Jays win.

    Come on, WALKS coupled with not being able to get past 5 is going to be story here.....He may strike out the side to start the game but there was a reason why he never cut it as a starter - in the MINORS!

    I'm afraid that he is going to get in pitch count trouble early on. Bard has great stuff , but control and command are not always up to par.

    In response to "Re: D Bard's First Start Prediction Thread": [QUOTE]12 K's?  Is he going to strike out every batter he faces?  Exactly how many innings do you expect him to pitch? Posted by andrewmitch[/QUOTE] Around 6 or 7 hopefully...his pitch count will be around 100, just like everyone else at this point...I think 7 or 8 Ks is more realistic, but who knows...give up the "couldn't start in the minors thing." That was 22 starts in Class A, eons ago...

    no, he failed as a starter at the minor league level - horribly - across 2 seaons....i can't see him making 100 pitches.......hopefully, he'll give us at least 80 though

    He was a starter during two minor league seasons?  Are you sure about this?

    I think he will be a lot like Doubront and get a high pitch count quickly:  5 IP, 2 runs, 3 walks, 5 k's.

    Ironically, these are the exact numbers that equal a "quality start" for CC in the play-offs.

    Bard throws some high-heat to Bautista. Clearly a brush back pitch, but Jose thinking it on purpose charges the mound. Pedey first to tackle Jose and Umps break it up.

    Ironically, these are the exact numbers that equal a "quality start" for the sawx staff in the playoffs the past few seasons.

    finally, we get to action over opinions! bard should close, he shouldn't.. noone knows. if he comes out and goes 7 strong shutout innings as i am predicting, who in their right mind will advocate for him being the closer esp wich aceves going 1-2-3 last night. its about performance. i would rather have a lights out guy ideally as a starter. most important. if he goes 1 inning and gets shelled, sure you may have to consider it esp if it happens 3 straight times! lets see how he does!
