No wonder you liked Bedard.
Best media Bedard exchange ever:
Bedard: Okay, I'm only answering three questions.
Media member: Why only three?
Bedard: That's one.
Means is off to a good start this year but I'd like to see him put together a stretch of 6 innings+ games. Right now he's got two 7 inning starts that sandwich a 4.2 and a 5.0 inning start. He didn't have his best stuff in either start but he was able to battle, I will give him credit there. I'm not saying he needs to go 7 innings of shutout ball each time out but I think he's gotta get past the 5th each time out if we want to look at him as an ace. IMO he's able to give you a gem each time out, but he's also able to give you a 4 or 5 inning start with an escalated pitch count.
PFF Brown 76.5 vs AV 74.6. There is the age difference but he also had to pass protect a ton more due to the Steelers pass happy offense and running issues.
For 1 or 2 years your getting a pretty comparable player.
No, I’ve probably said crazier.
I didn’t say it wouldn’t improve, I said I doubt it will, and i said that even if it gets back to his career 89 WRC, it won’t compensate for his defense.
That’s what I said.
And that’s not crazy.
