No inspiration from Bard? Heels shuffle rotation

UNC has opted to go with junior right-hander Robert Woodard, a 46th-round draft pick, instead of the highly touted Daniel Bard, a 6-foot-4 junior flame-throwing righty who was taken in the first round by Boston. Coach Mike Fox said Woodard deserves to start because he did not get an opportunity in last weekend’s super regional, but there is clearly more to the decision than that. “He’ll go out and he won’t walk people,” Fox said. “So he’ll give us a chance in that regard, and that’s always a good start for us.” (The State)
