Bobby Valentine was one of Daniel Bard's toughest critics during spring training, even going as far as to indicate the former reliever didn't belong in the rotation. Now, it appears that the manager is finally coming around.
Valentine credited Bard with a terrific performance during the Red Sox 10-3 win in Chicago on Friday, even singing the praises of the adjustments he's made.
NESN's Jenny Dell caught up with the manager after the victory. Valentine discussed Bard and the offensive onslaught during Red Sox Extra Innings.
