Samardzija for me. Bard's being yo-yoed around in Boston, faces the AL East and has glaring control issues. Samardzija's main issue was his control and his K/BB ratio was stellar all spring and has been solid thus far in the season.

Has to me Samardzija. Who knows where Bard ends up. Could be the closer by June or still bouncing around like a rag doll.

I'd rather have Bard at this point. Either Bard figures it out as a starter or he becomes the Red Sox closer. He should have more value as the closer there, since he has a history of elite RP numbers. Samardzija could also end up being a closer if Marmol and Wood don't get it, but I think the chance is less likely.

The way I see it neither guy has a high chance to be a more than good SP by the end of the year (either innings limits or decline in performance due to the innings jump) when you have your playoffs. Not that neither have a chance (either could) but I wouldn't call it a high chance. So I'd rather have the higher upside of Bard right now than I would Samardzija. Though I wouldn't call either the "wrong" answer.

Bard also has Bailey to deal with possibly at the closer position...
