Orioles Should Trade Bedard, Now

Saturday, January 26, 2008

The Orioles have been trying to trade Erik Bedard for over a month now, and it appears that Bedard is feeling unwanted. Bedard has been shopped to the Cubs and Mariners aggressively over the past couple of weeks, and I think Bedard was hoping they would try to lock him long term rather than try and trade him. So what does this mean for the Orioles this season? Personally, I think this will cause tension in the Orioles clubhouse and may lead to poor performance from Bedard. If I was Andy McPhail, I would take the deal the Mariners are offering for Bedard because not only will they be getting several top prospects, but they might clear some tension in the clubhouse. We'll see what happens, but the Orioles should be looking to make a trade.

I think the Jays should go after Jason Bay. I think it would put more fans in the seats with a little Canadian Content. Maybe a Rios for Bay trade.

move Bay to the Indians. He fits in Cleveland more than any other team because he already has his best friend in baseball here, in Grady Sizemore. The Indians also have the prospects and a few veterans that we can give the Pirates. It's a no brainer.
