Daniel Bard a Starter?

Daniel Bard was asked yesterday if he views himself as a starter or a reliever? Being a reliever, you’d think that would be his response but it wasn’t. Here is what Bard said…

“I see myself as a pitcher.”

Bard went on to say that he would like to try starting some day.

“I kind of would like to try it. It’s something I would like to do. It would kind of challenge myself. You’ve never proven yourself, but I know I can do the reliever thing for myself, just as a personal challenge, [starting] would be cool.”

The last time Bard started was back in college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. With the acquisitions of Bobby Jenks and Dan Wheeler this could be real possibility but Bard is best fit to be the heir apparent to Jonathan Papelbon.

Do you think the Sox should test out Bard in the starting rotation? Vote in the poll or leave a comment…
