Sad news reading the extra bases blog. This from Pete Abraham:
Meanwhile, in Reading Thursday afternoon, Daniel Bard had a rough ninth inning for Double A Portland.
He inherited a 7-3 lead and walked the first batter. A wild pitch moved that runner to second. Bard got a strikeout before throwing another wild pitch. He was then taken out of the game after a four-pitch walk.
In all, Bard threw 15 pitches, four of them strikes.
In two outings for Portland since Bard was optioned there, he has walked three, thrown three wild pitches, and thrown strikes on 13 of 33 pitches.
If you go back to his last outing with the Red Sox, Bard has walked five of the last 10 batters he has faced.
Geez, overreact much?
It's not an overreaction when Bard has been terrible at all levels (MLB, AAA, AA) for well over a year with seemingly no end in sight.
I think it's silly to write off any uninjured player that under 30.
Sure, he could be another Craig Hansen, but I think it's too early to say he's done.
Four B's is his usual observant self...he will make a decision when Bard is 30! LMAO...because we all know minor leaguers suddenly turn the corner and play awesome at 29
I am a wait and see kind of guy...
If you and Pumpsie need to to spend your time trying to prove you're the smartest guys in the room, knock yourself out.
