Red Sox - Signed Bard

Boston Red Sox - Signed C Josh Bard to a 1-year contract worth $2.6 million.

This contract is non-guaranteed, the Red Sox mainly trying to have as many options at catcher as they can, depending on what happens with Jason Varitek.  2008 was essentially a wasted season for Bard as he was recovering from offseason wrist surgery and spent large chunks of the season on DL with a bad ankle sprain (awkward homeplate collision with Pujols), and problems in both the right elbow and triceps.  He’ll need to show he’s healthy to have a better offseason next year.

Bard is a bard.
Not really a pun, is it? More of a... statement.

I bet this Bard has quite a tale.

Red Sox: 100 million human cloning machine.
Hopefully they don't clone Varitek next.

If they can clone the 27-year-old version of Varitek, I'm pretty sure I could live with that.

Well, the clone would have to start out as zero, so just wait 27 years.

Unless the mutations kill or cripple him.
