Report: Mets Close to Acquiring Bedard

Monday, December 3, 2007

According to major league sources, the Mets are very close to acquiring Erik Bedard in exchange for Phillip Humber, Aaron Heilman, Ryan Church, and a player to be named later. This seems a little low knowing the Orioles in trade discussions, so I expect that they may be in talks. It is possible they offered Kevin Mulvey in the deal too, that could probably get it done, but I will look into it.

UPDATE: The report that suggested Erik Bedard is on his way to the Mets is "false," according to one executive with the Mets. However, talks are ongoing.

MLB Rumors on Reuters!: Check out this article posted on Reuters a couple nights ago. They took my story on David Riske, reporting the story that he was close to signing.

A young ace under contract for two years? For our lesser pitching prospect, an admittedly good set-up man, and a doubles-hitting outfielder? SIGN ME UP!!!!
