    Eric Bedard - It's been nice knowing you

    Eric Bedard pitched his last game with the Red Sox tonight. He serves no purpose on this team as we have seen with his constant nagging injuries and his inability to go more than 4 innings.

    84 pitches in 3 1/3 is just pathetic.  

    If by some lucky chance the Red Sox make the playoffs, he will not be on the roster.

    In 3 1/3 IP, Bedard threw 84 pitches. In 3 1/3 IP, Aceves threw 36 pitches.
    Unreal.

    It is beyond unreal it is stupid as has been most of the Red Sox decision making for the last couple of years.

    Aceves has great value out of the bullpen, especially given the rest of the pitching staff.  He is able to go 2-3 innings multiple times a week, not something most guys can do, thus saving the rest of the bullpen and allowing for starters to be yanked early, which has been all too common.

    If Aceves starts he pitches once every five days, this way he pitches every 2-3 days.  Tonight is the perfect example, he comes in early when Bedard struggles, gets it to the late innings and gets the win.  If he had started he likely wouldn't be available tomorrow or Thursday (if necessary), this way he is.

    Even if the Red Sox showed interest, Erik Bedard would be unlikely to return to Boston after Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy wrote:

    Hardly enough for “Big Game’’ Bedard. The lazy lefty (doesn’t run, doesn’t throw much) surrendered a two-run homer to Matt Wieters in the fourth and was mercifully yanked after a subsequent walk and single. Bedard’s pitching line: 3 1/3 innings, three runs, five hits, three walks, 84 pitches, 48 strikes. Just pitiful.

    Erik Bedard is a senstive guy and Dan Shaughnessy takes pleasure in pushing emotional buttons behind the security of his computer.

    Excuse me hill55, but Shaughnessy, like the other guys who cover the Sox, are usually in the locker room with the players before and after games. I think DS has been around long enough not to hide behind his computer after writing his columns...I can't see Bedard confronting him on his comments - since they just happen to be accurate.

    Hill55,
    My guess is that Bedard didn't read it, doesn't care, and never intended to stay in Boston anyways. He'd be a perfect fit in San Diego a pitchers park with a laid back fan base...

    End of the day he was brought here to do a specific task and has fallen short, pitched no better than a journeyman #5 since arriving. I know that you're an M's fan so I don't have to give you a run down on his MO...truth or fiction...his reputation precedes him....

    Re: Eric Bedard - It's been nice knowing you

    Bedard will be on the roster spot for the post season.  I rather to have him over Miller, Weiland and Wakefield.  He may not be on the roster spot for the first round, but more likely for the ACLS and WS cuz he could just pitch game #4 for whatever the number of pitches he throw, and then have Aceves take over for another three plus innings before bullpen clean it up.

    Heck no way that Beckett/Lester both will pitch more than three games a piece for ACLS or WS if Boston advance.

    Come on guys, who should be on the pitching staffs for the post season?  

    I have Beckett, Lackey, Lester, Aceves, Bard, Papelbon, Wheeler, Morales, Droubmont or Ambers, maybe Wakefield as a mop up guy and Bedard.

    Bedard is never going to be a factor of any kind in Boston.  I am pretty he won't anywhere else either.

    He's been better than Lackey.

     He hasn't lasted long enough to see whether he's better or worse than Lackey. 84 pitches in 3 1/3 innings is horrible, so it looks very possible. It seemed as if he went 3-2 on every batter. To be honest it was even worse than even Dice-k!
