Does Leo have Bedard in the Maz'Zone' ?

Postby Daddymike59 » Sun Apr 16, 2006 11:11 am

Orioles 3, Angels 2
DAVID GINSBURG, Apr 15, 2006
Working with pitching coach Leo Mazzone is paying hefty dividends for Erik Bedard, who used pinpoint control and an overpowering fastball to beat Bartolo Colon and the Los Angeles Angels. Bedard pitched eight strong innings to earn his third win, and the Baltimore Orioles turned a three-run fifth into a 3-2 victory Saturday

3-0 is hard to argue with

Didnt he start like this last season. Id see if he can carry it more than three starts before labeling him as a work of Mazzone

Agreed , check last years first 6/7 weeks stats. He was great before injury. I believe pitching coaches get way to much credit. Many time they happen to be in right spot at right time when pitcher matures, thus getting way to much credit.

I think all that means is, "sell high".

Look at who he's played. Waiting until he faces the Jays, Sox and Yankees.

Bedard's a good young pitcher but durability is big concern. I wouldn't expect him to dominate against the Yanks, Red Sox and the Jays all season. TB is not too shabby when they have a full lineup also.

if i get an offer i'd sell high on him, but i'm not gonna go out and shop him. if i remember he had a pretty bad injury last year, so i can see why he didnt come back to pre-injury form.

Yeah, look at who he's played. TB twice, and LAA... both trash...

Are you serious? Sure he will have his rough outings vs. the Yanks, and Sox... but he will also get his starts in vs. lesser teams then TB, and LAA.

Bedard is a real talent. That with Leo on his side is a good formula for a great season.

How are the Angels trash? There offense is overrated, I'll say that, but a 90 win team isn't trash. They must be doing something right at least.

I do think Bedard will have a good season overall hough.

I'd sell high on Bedard, he's just had too many problems staying healthy for a full season.

As for his last game, the strike zone was just huge in that game, everything was a strike and the Angels are a mediocre lineup so I'd say not to expect that out of him every week. I still like him to put up decent numbers until the first injury of the year.
