Daniel Bard, Red Sox ‘Derailed’ As Blue Jays Snatch Victory from Usually-Reliable Jaws of Defeat

Ugh. Just when things were looking up for the Red Sox and the team looked like they were on their way to getting back on track, Daniel Bard's struggles continued and the Toronto Blue Jays stole a win on Wednesday.

The Red Sox were derailed in the eighth inning of the loss and for that, NESN Nation is awarding Daniel Bard our "Derailed" player of the game award.

NESN Nation's Fitzy is reeling a little bit after another loss and he can't figure out what's wrong with Bard right now. After all, this is a guy who's been lights-out for most of the season.

We thought we had things turned around and the Sox were rolling again, but now there's still some work to do as the Tampa Bay Rays come to town on Thursday in what could now be a make-or-break series with the Wild Card at stake.
