According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, the nearly forgotten Daniel Bard might pitch again in a baseball game relatively soon. Bard—who has actually been out longer than Clay Buchholz—will likely pitch in some minor league game before those seasons end soon. Bard recently confided to Rob Bradford (also of WEEI.com) that he feels he could help Boston this year. Earlier this year, Bard was miserable in Portland—walking the equivalent of a small, third world country while posting a 6.39 ERA. Getting back a healthy Bard at even 75% of his 2010-2011 dominance would be a huge boost to this team.
