I can't criticize Bard. Considering the history of this team with injuries. I don't have to run down the list of players who've been on the DL more than they've been on the active roster.
Josh Bard has...limitations but he's still playing. I mean, he is what he is.
...and that reaching and stretching, alone, would have put some current and former Nats on the 15-day DL.
