Sorry Bedard. Hopefully I can pick you up again when you get off your lazy non competitive butt and hit the field again
Are you for real? I don't understand where all this hate is coming from with this guy. It's frustrating to his fantasy owners, but how can people be bashing him so badly based on some reporters' speculation. I'd love to know more about how Bedard got labelled in such a way. Honestly, you guys who are ripping into Bedard based on some crap spouted on the always reliable (rolls eyes) "Yahoo Inside Dish" (which I don't even know how to access but was posted by someone named "macca" on Monday), really need to get a reality check. Bedard is a guy with a ton of promise, who has his whole career in front of him, who doesn't want to rush back. Just for the record, here's the only thing I personally have seen that even remotely justifies this kind of vitriol towards Erik Bedard..."The Orioles privately are frustrated with LHP Erik Bedard, who is recovering slowly from a strained left knee ligament. Bedard, who was expected to miss only two or three starts, could end up being out six weeks. Some baseball men question his passion for the game and desire to succeed. . . . "
All right, I admit I got a little carried away- which can happen
But I stand by my point that he's not exactly coming off like a pitcher with a strong competitive edge.
I read the same blurb you just posted as well as-
``It's progressively healing, but slowly,'' Bedard said, drawing out the final word for emphasis. ``No need to push it. I would rather wait.''
With the way he emphasized the word "slowly" it sounded to me like a pitcher not in a hurry to get back on the field. Very frustrating that Bedard was such a waiver wire gem and then without any warning he was on the DL for a stretch that just keeps getting longer and longer.
Personally I have every intention of re-stashing him when Rolen comes off the DL.
Didn't mean to get you all riled up Constanza- chill
