And he doesn't have any fat new contract.


--- Well, I was referring to the $7 Million one year deal that Seattle gave him after he made $3.4 million in 2007 with the Orioles.
It's a little confusing to me because I'm not well versed in the ins and outs of player contracts, but the reports I've read say that he's not a free agent until after the 2009 season, but his contract was only through 2008 - so how does that work? Is he obligated to play for the Mariners through 2009 but his pay rate hasn't been set yet?

Nevertheless, $7 million up from $3.4 strikes me as being pretty phat.


Yeah, it's a raise, but just the normal course of a player's time under team control... He is indeed obligated to play for the Mariners through 2009, and you're right that his pay hasn't been set yet. He is arbitration eligible, so the two parties (player and team) could go to arbitration and argue about how much he should be paid with a third party determining which party makes the better case, or the two parties can agree on what his one year deal will be worth (that's what happened last year IIRC). Or he could always sign long-term but I have to think that's unlikely at this point.

I think he will take a bit hit in value especially with me. I kept him over Lincecum :,-( This move probably cost me money.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Thanks for the clarification BP, that's what I had thought.

I wouldn't spend more than $7 on Bedard next year. I'd rather spend the money on someone who won't be spectacular, but will pitch the whole year. Give me Dave Bush for $3 instead of Bedard for $15.

I dunno, I'd like to have him for the rate pogo is paying him($46 maybe? I'm not at my computer) in Hot Stove for the next 5 years. :-D

Looks like a torn labrum. Surgery next week. Out 6-9 months.

This is pretty much the worst case scenario coming to life. I hate you Mariners. I hate you Bavasi and Stottlemyre. :-[ Image
