Not that I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread, but come on. Bard is good, really good, and he can fill the slot, I just hope he’s ready. Please Red Sox, at least spend the cash you’re apparently not giving Paps and get a really solid ace starting pitcher. Actually, get two.
Oh, and while you’re at it, give Ortiz whatever the hell he wants, just let him retire in a Sox uniform. Letting people like that go at the end of their careers is just insulting. Look at what you did to poor Fisk.
This is going to be one hell of a hot stove season.
