Dan Bard "the future closer" of the Boston Red Sox choked up once again. This is a prospect that Theo just could not depart from in the Roy Halladay trade on July 30 Th. It turns out that this is just another black mark against Mr Theo Epstein.
It is said that you get what you pay for and I think the Yale graduate is figuring this out a little too late.
Theo this off season you will have a to do list and goes as follows...Do not sign geriatric pitchers and back up outfielders with diseases that are unknown. Secondly sign a short stop, I heard defense wins games. Last but, not least put a starting rotation together and sign an outfield that hits higher than a 250 batting average.
Boston should look to next year and find a way to put a charity cup out in front of Fen way Park within hopes that the Re Sox ownership along with their pride and joy Theo, can get some quality players.
