THis team. Is contenders. This year.

We aren't. Just... no. Not happening. Maaaaybe we squeeze into the second wild card, but does that make us a contender? HECK no.

That being said the right move is to built forward for next year, and THAT involves letting Bard throw some innings this year.
I haven't heard Felger say anything to the effect of him thinking they are contenders this year.

Moving Bard to the bullpen doesn't skyrocket this team to the top of the AL East. What is does is have the potential to stop the freaking bleeding. That's what the team needs right now, and why the team needs him there.
