There had been talk of starting Lester, given the off day today, but Bard improved dramatically in his second start, whereas Lester had his first bad outing in his third start and could probably use a day off.
Valentine just said that Bard will start on Sunday against the Yankees. #RedSox
The Yankees, by the way, are not exactly running away with the division at 6-6. Curtis Granderson has had some clutch moments, and Derek Jeter has had a strong start, but overall they look less scary than Texas at this point. Jim Corrigan 4/19/2012 10:03:00 PM Tweet
