    Gosh, after last night’s performance you actually think Bedard might not have mass appeal?  I never have seen a half-inning like that.  Ever.

    A top 75 prospect and a guy with 56 X-base hits in 399 PA, for Bedard and a glaringly wild relief prospect. I guess real talent evaluations are made by taking into account more than just one start.

      Yes Bedard is an Ace!! really just the media here in Seattle
      has an occasion to slam him for some reason. Not his fault he is a little
      brittle. Jack Z got a very very good return on him most likely better then we traded
      to get Erik here. I think the media needs to lay off him. He now has a real chance
      for a ring. maybe more then 1

    Wrong again on Bedard, John! Of course a team was going to gamble on Bedard even though he wasn’t good on Friday. He was so good in the first half it’s worth a shot. It’s not like they had to give up the next Nomar Garciaparra or anything like that, just a couple of prospects (and actually the best prospect came from LA who took three marginal guys from the Sox for T. Robinson). ”It’s hard to see a contender making a big roll of the dice with Bedard at this point. If he’s going to be dealt, it will probably come after the trade deadline, when clubs must put players through waivers to complete a deal. That makes trades slightly more difficult. Most clubs don’t block waivers.”

    ouch.  Maybe you should have titled this “If I were a GM, I wouldn’t take Bedard”.  Most other reports coming out about Bedard were about the Red Sox’s continued interest in him.  So did you have different information, or did you just make this up?

    he’s John Hickey, baseball beat writer for the last 20 years. He thinks he knows everything.
