I'm on record as liking the move actually. As I said, given the circumstances, how can you be mad?

Is it time to go after Bard in a keeper? Papelbon hasn't been traded and now they have Wheeler and Jenks. Bard is likely the best of the bunch IMO but won't close. But, someday he will. :-)

This only changes Bard's 2012 value slightly, IMO. Before signing Jenks, Bard was pretty much guaranteed to be the closer in 2012, unless he struggled in 2011. Bard probably is still going to be the closer in 2012, unless he struggles in 2011.

Jenks was told he would have a chance to compete for the closer's job, he was not actually promised the closer's job. He and Bard will probably compete for the job, but Bard still should have the inside track, so long he keeps pitching like he did in 2010.
"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.
