So SF, you wanna man up on your predictions?
Bard's numbers are better than Nieves over the course of the season, and career.
I don't even dislike Nieves, or either of them for that matter. I just don't care that much any which way. They are interchangeably mediocre-to-bad replacement-level players. Mr 42k "why do we keep rehashing this?" is the one who wails when Nieves doesn't start.
