Cubs claim Bard; RSL Poll: Who's to blame for Daniel Bard?

The Chicago Cubs announced Wednesday that they have claimed pitcher Daniel Bard off waivers from the Red Sox. Boston's former top-100 prospect was designated for assignment on Sunday.

Bard was a dominant late-inning reliever in 2010, but didn't respond well when the team attempted to convert him into a starter in 2012.

Red Sox Life covered the "Curious Case of Daniel Bard" earlier this week.

Now, with the news coming out of Chicago that the Cubs have claimed him off waivers, RSL asks: Who is to blame for all that went wrong?
