Bard has one pitch. It's a kickass 100+ mph heater... big deal. If he can't develop two other + pitches it's garbage. If he can do that... and I personally don't see that as likely.... then he'll be very good. If he can develop just one other pitch- slider, curve, good change-up... whatever... then he could be a dominant closer.
I'd be willing to bet the house on the latter happening.

Great bet, come back Trot, you've won a house.

I miss Trot THIS much.

Bard for closer, Papelbon for fodder.

The young Bill James rather famously wrote that he could not find any evidence that certain types of players could consistently hit better in the clutch – he still has not found that evidence. But unlike his younger self, he will not dismiss the idea of clutch hitting. He has been a consultant for the Red Sox for more than a decade, and he has watched David Ortiz deliver so many big hits in so many big moments, and he finds himself unwilling to deny that Big Papi does have an ability in those situations others don’t have.

I remember that, but what a good call on Bard!

I wish Trots hadn't dropped off the 'net. He has! I see him nowhere now.

Maybe one of these days I'll ask a poster from SOSH (his name escapes me) if he knows how he's doing. They were friends in real life too.
