Neither appear to be the pitchers they were once projected to become. Both look more like 5th starters or spot starters at this point and their situations are similar. Both are competing for starting spots but there are a slew of players that could win the job they hope to get. Either way, both are likely to be on major league rosters.

Ultimately, I think both will be relegated to the bullpen.

I read something somewhere last night about Petit, but I forget what exactly it was and where it was from. It wasn't positive, though.

Yeah, these guys have taken big steps back. And I like Bard, to answer your next question.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Sinkbeil. Bard throws hard, but I like what Sinkbeil has been able to do more. But again, both are pretty green.

Bard has one of the best arms in the minors right now, but he is very far from a finished product. I still like him more than Petit or Baker though.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
