More concerning than the price of beer is Daniel Bard, who had an abysmal outing with the GCL Red Sox on Thursday. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston.com)

Alex Speier examines if the Red Sox have enough star power to win it all this season. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Chip Buck wonders why people have forgotten about a certain Red Sox prospect. (Chip Buck; Fire Brand of the AL)
