    ERIK BEDARD

    i live in the dc area, so last night as i'm flipping through the channel i came up upon the pittsburgh-naties game, i decided to pause and get a glimpse of one bryce harper. the kid's the middlebrooks of the NL. anywho, i get in as the second inning is about to start and coming up is ex-soxer adam laroche and pitching to him is another ex-soxer mr. erik bedard. well, this ought to be interesting. then THREE pitches into the AB, bedard does that very familiar grimace all sox fans came to know very well. turns out he had back spasms and the trainers and coaches sprinted out there to check on him like secret service agents upon seeing a ho. he did the familiar bend, talk and sure enough he came out walking gingerly just like old times and for his career.

    SERIOUSLY, y would anyone give this guy another starting assignment? pirates already have unreliable AJ burnett in their rotation, y compound things? bedard pitched a clean first inning. at best, he should become a lefty specialist or a rich hill/alan embree type with plaenty of other guys in the minors and staff ready to pick up the inevitable slack as he needs a day or a week or 2 every other appearance or 2. its one thing for a reliever to be this brittle, quite another for a starter. they won the game but had to really extend their bullpen.

    all i could think about was how theo blew over a rich harden AND others for the stable option of bedard. he is very symbolic of theo's last days in BAWSTON!

    How many "grimaces" has Rich Harden displayed this year?

    Harden posted a 5.57 ERA in 10 starts after the trade deadline last year pitching in a pitcher's park in a pitcher's division. Bedard posted a 4.03 ERA in eight starts pitching in a hitter's park in a hitter's division.

    ...Because Erik Bedard is good when healthy and he was cheap.

    Bedard was awful as well last year and did not help the team at all. Inremember you were lucky if you got five innings from this clown last year and he looked like he did not give a dam either. Teams keep signing turkies like Bedard and throw money at him for substandard performances and long stints on the DL.

    Middlebrooks is a very good prospect.  Bryce Harper is a phenomenon.  19 years old with a heckuva swing that just might stick with the Nationals his first time out.
