Phil has yet to fill out a bio.
Hey Phil, thanks for reading my piece (though next time it might be easier if you comment on the article). Anyways, in response to your comment, that hasn't been determined yet. Bobby V. has said they are going to try and stretch Bard out like a starter over spring training, but have not yet determined what his role will be in 2012. Also, nowhere has anyone said Aceves is starting. Boston is still in on Matt Garza, Hiroki Kuroda and Roy Oswalt. So, they plan on entering Spring Training with at least four starters (Lester, Beckett, Buchholz, and one of those three listed before) and if they haven't acquired five, then maybe we'll see if Aceves or Bard starts.
