07:33 AM ET 02.19 | If it turns out that Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery changes the fortunes of righty Daniel Bard, he won't have far to look for a reminder. Somewhere in his backpack is the rib that Bard had removed during his surgery for TOS. It's boiled and bleached too. Bard knows that because he handled the duties himself. ... Bard had his TOS surgery last month and was given the rib that was removed in a plastic medical jar. It sat in a bathroom for around a month and that was long enough for Bard's wife, Adair, who didn't like looking at what Bard called "a spare rib that wasn't cooked basically." The smell of the rib was also a little more than she could take too. With the options of throwing it out or coming up with another plan, Bard went the route of preserving the rib.

Unless that rib was in his head, it probably won't help.

I heard he had the rib removed so that he's flexible enough to service himself.

If he's keeping things that have held back his career in his backpack, Booby V must be living in there.
