Bedard

Yeah I think so too. Unlike many guys on here, (I don't think I am as nice), I DO NOT want to see Bedard win 18-20 games and dominate people.

To tell you the truth, nothing against him personally, but I was liking the trade more every single day he was on the DL.

From the Bedard thread in the MLB forum...

I watched the game tonight and he looked pretty good. His changeup is coming around. It is actually a plus pitch.

Back when I heard Leo on XM before ST, he said Erik was already as good as anybody he'd seen (which is saying something) and that was with him still working on the change. He said that, once he got that pitch figured out too, look out...
Last night on Baseball Tonight, Kurkjian said that a scout told him that Bedard had Sandy Koufax stuff. Last year Joe Torre said pretty much the same thing. He said he thought he was facing Koufax the night Bedard dominated the Yanks.

The M's got more than just a good pitcher...

How well Jones, TIllman etc perform is independent of what Bedard does. Plus, and I've heard ATL Prez John Schuerholtz say this, you want the guys you trade away to do well because it makes it that much easier to make the next deal (people respect what you are offering).

I'm just a fan of good baseball in general. I like seeing pitchers who just dominate. Now, I'd prefer to see those guys pitch for the O's, but I do love me a dominant pitching performance (as long as it's not against the Orioles).

IMO, if it took Bedard being on the DL to make you like the trade more, you're missing the point of the trade, which was not to get rid of Bedard, but to stock the team with young talent. The performance of the players that we got in return should be making you like the trade, not Bedard's woes. Again, this is my opinion, and you're really free to like or dislike the trade based on whatever merits you want to do so on.

I agree. Trades can have 2 winners or no winners.
