I owned Bedard the last two years so I had a bit of a mancrush on him going into this season but, fortunately he was drafted too soon for my tastes this year. A Tim Brown article from March of this year really made me question his work ethic and I had a strong feeling that he might milk his injuries and just sit on his fat new contract, here's the excerpt that made me figure that I wouldn't draft him next year unless he happens to fall to the late rounds:
.....the request was to describe his responsibility pitching from the top of the rotation when the expectations are so high.
“I have no idea,” he said. “I don’t have any.”
No idea? Or no responsibility?
“No responsibility,” he said.
Even in a fantasy baseball sense, I don't really want guys on my squad who feel they have "no responsibility" to their team and fans (and of course, us fantasy baseball players)http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=t ... o&type=lgn
