Eric Bedard scratched??

“His hip flared up again,” manager John McLaren said. “We were hoping the medication would kick in like it did in Baltimore, but he still feels it a little bit so we’re going to play it on the safe side.”

Uh oh?!? I hope the medication kicks in too.

Always has been a slow starter and will not got it rev up until May. A great buy low at the beginning of every year.

While I don't necessarily object that he's a buy-low, I don't think it's right to characterize this problem as him being a "slow starter" ever year. Last year, he put up horrible stats for my team in the first 4 weeks or so, but after 30 IP he had struck out 40 or so for an absurd K rate. I knew he was getting really unlucky with hit rate, so I stuck with him and it paid off.

There was no indication of a health problem last year, whereas this year there is a very clear medical issue that is affecting him. The hip is hugely important for all pitchers, but even more so for Bedard (his motion relies on a very dramatic rotation of the torso, since he's one of those guys who twists until the hitter is basically looking at their backs before unleashing).

I was very leery of Bedard going into the year. Dunno if he'll regain his health and rebound, but I stayed far away from him. If healthy, he can be great, but that looks like a big "if" right now...

Yup. confirmed on rotoworld. Earliest he can come back is next Thursday, I believe.

Ugh. As if my staff wasn't weak enough.
