What is up with Lopez and Bedard?

These guys are playing out of their mind. Lopez shut down the Yanks like they were the Royals.

This is one of the most underpaid pitching staffs in baseball (would be solid if they got rid of the felon Ponson).

Any thoughts on if this is going to be sustained or if this is just their 2 games of fame?

Don't worry, it won't last too long. These guys are in no way overpaid and don't resemble a "solid" staff. Baltimore could use a legit #1 and #2 starter still. I wouldn't touch those guys you mentioned until they string together more than one or two good starts.

Lopez isn't bad, especially figures to be tough early though he could wear down. Bedard will be highly impressive at times, but his blowups will be nasty. A little too unproven for my taste...but I do like Lopez.

Buyer beware on all of them. Hitter's park, warm weather, the AL East and meciocrity at best are not a good mix. Lopez is the only one that might be OK for a bottom of the staff fantasy starter.

I'd be fairly comfortable with Lopez on my staff. The others are much riskier. I don't know what to make or expect of Bedard. Not saying he isn't worth a roster spot, but tread carefully.

I think I'll play matchups with Bedard, but I'd trust (used loosely) Rodrigo.

To imagine that my league mocked me when I took Rodrigo Lopez over David Wells as my 5th starter. Suckers. Rodrigo has always been rather solid, he should be good. Just don't expect a sub 2.00 ERA the entire season :-D
