Erik Bedard to the Dodgers


Il BuonO

Recommended Posts

He was at 25 million in salary at the end of the 2012 season. He came back for a bit over 1 in 2013 and played one game in the majors in 2014 (no salary listed). You think what he is going to make on the MiL deal moves the needle for him financially?

This is a guy that had:

eight trips to the disabled list from 2003-2010 for, in order, Tommy John surgery, a strained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, a strained right oblique, left hip inflammation, left shoulder impingement, left shoulder inflammation, and left shoulder surgery
.

I have to think pitching isn't a pleasant sensation for him these days and he is still going out there trying to make a team.

If he makes the ML team it probably gets pushed to a mil or two with incentives, maybe innings. And for him, throwing a little over 5 per that's easy money. Especially for what he invests at this point in his career. He is who he is.

For someone that never looked to care for the game he sure has been willing to work at hanging on.

I would have bet he would have been one of those to just disappear.

I remember an interview with him saying (paraphrasing) that he was particular about limiting his innings and preventing injury so he could stay around and have an extended career (and a paycheck I presumed).
