Olney on M&M: Scouts concerned about Bard

Making his weekly appearance on Mut & Merloni Thursday afternoon, ESPN baseball analyst Buster Olney talked all things Red Sox, including pitcher Daniel Bard, whose spotty effectiveness has been a concern all season.

Bard pitched 5 1/3 innings and earned a win on Wednesday against the Orioles to improve his record to 4-5, but his ERA stands at 4.69 and he has more walks than strikeouts. Olney said that league scouts are concerned not only with Bard's fastball but his control as well.

"They're saying to me what really concerns them is how much he's missing his target by," Olney said. "They're watching that the target is down and in and the ball is high and away. He's missing his target by a couple of feet, and for them that's a concern. And the feeling is: How good can he be if he's missing by that much, and what is the reason behind that?"

Adrian Gonzalez made an appearance in right field in the series with the...

Bard: Cut on pitching hand not an issue

Speaking to WEEI.com at the Hard Rock Cafe during an event to celebrate the release of Fenway Park's 100th anniversary commemorative album, Daniel Bard said the cut on his pitching referenced by Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine after his team's 6-5 win in Baltimore Wednesday was a non-issue.

"It's not a big deal at all," said the Red Sox pitcher. "I've had it since high school."

The cut resides the area between Bard's right thumb and forefinger and is opened up by his nail, usually when executing various fastballs. Between starts he often uses Super Glue to toughen up the area.

"I've filed the nail down," Bard explained. "I've had it bleed where blood was dripping down, but it wasn't that bad [Wednesday]. We try and heal it between every start, but it tends to reopen. As long as I can limit it from ripping."

Valentine cited the the cut when conducting his postgame interview with NESN Wednesday...

Mashup: Steinbrenners to sell Yankees?

According to the New York Daily News, "rumors are flying in Major League Baseball and New York banking circles" that the Yankees could soon be put up for sale by the Steinbrenner family. The report indicates the family is considering its options following the April sale of the Dodgers for a record $2.175 billion.

Yankees president Randy Levine denied the report. "I can say to you there is absolutely, positively nothing to this," he said. "The Steinbrenners are not selling the team."

But the Daily News' sources paint a picture of a family that has not inherited George Steinbrenner's love of owning the team.

Said one source of general partner Hal Steinbrenner: "Hal hates the players, and he hates the media."

Valentine: Red Sox are championship caliber

After watching his team finish off a 5-3 road trip -- while going 11-9 during a stretch of 20 straight games -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine offered the highest praise for his club while conducting his postgame interview on NESN.

"We play like this the rest of the season," Valentine said after the Red Sox' 6-5 win over the Orioles Wednesday, "we're going to win the championship."

With their latest win, the Red Sox improve to .500, having won 10 of their last 13 games. Over that stretch Valentine's team leads the majors in runs scored and OPS. Over the 13 games, the Sox pitching staff is third in the major leagues in ERA (3.00), with its starters claiming the big league's second-best ERA (3.14).

"I’m ecstatic," Valentine told reporters after the win over the O's. "The credit goes the...
