BBTN video: Is Bard a starter or reliever?
The "Baseball Tonight" crew discusses Red Sox pitcher Daniel Bard's status in the starting rotation.
Karl Ravech and Curt Schilling discuss whether Bard needs to develop a changeup. Schilling thinks he'll eventually require it, but it will come in time.
"Third pitch, you develop that when you get your first and second pitch down and comfortable."
Schilling goes on to say that he thinks Bobby Valentine is "mismanaging this situation in horrible fashion" and should rely on pitching coach Bob McClure more.
