So the last one of these Bard games wasn't all that great. Entering right before a rain delay, Bard's rhythm was broken, allowing the Cardinals to go all-out on him for seven runs in under three innings. But it's all about the rain delay, right? He'll be fine, right? This experiment will be a huge success, right?!
Perhaps this isn't the crowd to look to for reassurance.
Either way, he'll have his hands full with a pretty strong Toronto lineup tonight:
|BOSTON RED SOX||TORONTO BLUE JAYS|
|Nick Punto - SS||Kelly Johnson - 2B|
|Jacoby Ellsbury - CF||Yunel Escobar - SS|
|Dustin Pedroia - 2B||Jose Bautista - RF|
|David Ortiz - DH||Eric Thames - LF|
|Cody Ross - LF||Edwin Encarnacion - 3B|
|Ryan Sweeney - RF||Colby Rasmus - CF|
|Mike Aviles - SS||Travis Snider - DH|
|Kelly Shoppach - C||David Cooper - 1B|
|Nate Spears - 1B||Jeff Mathis - C|
The game is on NESN and WEEI, so you can actually, y'know, see what happens instead of taking others' words for it.
