McGair: It's time to give Bard a definite path

Through all the video and bullpen sessions along with everything else geared toward the task of Reconstruction: The Daniel Bard Story, there’s one loose end left.
What exactly is Bard’s mound assignment moving forward – starter or reliever?

PAWTUCKET – Daniel Bard got his wish Monday night. Unfortunately for the pitcher, the switch to the bullpen did little inspire confidence that he’s ready to turn the corner.
Working one inning, Bard allowed one run on one hit with a walk and two strikeouts as the PawSox saw a ninth-inning rally come up just short in an 11-8 loss to the Gwinnett Braves. Bard ended up tossing 22 pitches, 11 for strikes.

PROVIDENCE – Head coach Dan Belisle couldn't have been more matter-of-fact after Woonsocket High suffered an 8-5 loss to West Warwick High in a R.I. Division II Tournament losers' bracket final at Rhode Island College on Monday night.
“I'm really proud of my kids,” he said following a contest best described as wild and, well, weird. “They showed a lot of fight, they showed grit, and they swung the bats well. It just didn't go our way.”
