Does Leo have Bedard in the Maz'Zone' ?

Bedard's durability is not a concern so much as the fact that he is a mentally weak baby. He essentially took himself out of action last year, causing the Os and many others to question his toughness. I would put too much faith in a guy who has a reputation for being soft.

I think there's a lot more evidence for his durability problems when for his "toughness", not to mention the fact that the two might be part of the same package.

This is a guy who NEVER in any professional season, was able to top 145 IP. He's been hurt basically every year.

I personally do not think Bedard will be able to keep this up all season long. While Leo could have helped Bedard improve, I don't think it will end up being that significantly. I am hoping Bedard has a couple more good starts, then I am gonna sell him high. :-°

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I've got him on two of my three teams so I'm hoping he could pull it together for a full year. Having said that though, I'm definitely considering him to be a sell-high candidate if he sarts getting enough attention.
I hear a lot about his potential but I've also heard a lot of questions about his mental makeup which makes me doubt that he could stay consistent.

Just one of many reasons to have unloaded him when he 4-0...

The Jays and Yanks are two more reasons !+)

They did knock around the O's again today, but they never used to play great against the Braves in interleague.

i still think bedard can be useful to your fantasy teams. hes not dominating, but he should keep his era under 4 for the season and put up respectable numbers in the other cats.
