    Simply not enough room and he will eventually need TJS. We did not tender him a contract, last I heard was that we were interested in bringing him back on a minor league deal.

    Does anyone see Daniel Bard having a big offseason/Spring Training and making a comeback into the bullpen?

    I still believe in him. Relievers have fragile minds and it's clear Bard's problem last year was mental. Maybe coming into this season strictly as a reliever will get him right again. He certainly has the stuff, filthy FB/SL combo.

    I like Bard's chances considering that we have two potential closers in Hanrahan and Bailey, two more potential setup guys in Tazawa and Uehara, and Aceves for the time being who has closer experience. There is no bullpen in the MLB that Bard we be under less pressure in IMO.

    The key arm is Bard to come in quiet rallies. we got none of that from 2012.

    I don't quite agree. Bard altered his mechanics and approach slightly to try to be able to get deep into games as a start. The mental part took over from there; he got into a rut and couldn't get back out. Farrell commented on the physical differences in his pitching shortly after coming back and Bard himself talked about it last year as well.

    I agree with the idea that his issues are correctable and that a mental adjustment will be a big part of that.

    Right-hander Scott Atchison expects to sign a minor league deal with a team other than the Red Sox this week, writes MLB.com's Evan Drellich. Atchison told Drellich the team he's closing in on will give him a good chance to make the Major League bullpen. Atchison was diagnosed with a partial UCL tear last August but has had "great results" in letting it heal with rest and rehab.
    Looks like he won't be back.

    Complex case, might take some time if ever. Hope he makes it back for us. the team over the next 5-6 years just wouldn't be the same w/o him on it.

    Maybe at least we will hear no more about how easy it is to move from the pen to the rotation - and back.

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    Bard should be fine if he decides to throw strikes in 2013

    Yes, I was only pointing out that his issues were not only mental as was previously claimed.
