Bedard is good yes, and will add more value to the team this year, but over the next 5 or 6 years Jones would be much better. Lets face it, the M's just don't have the offense to really compete this year regardless of what the pitching staff looks like, and I assume Bedard will likely see what he can get via free agency when the time comes.
A good comparison for the '08 Mariners after the trade would be the '07 Blue Jays. I read this somewhere, though I don't remember where, but it makes a lot of sense to me. I'd say that rotation is comparable to the one the M's should be going with but they just did not have the offense even to really compete. And how does the Jays offense compare to Seattle's? Well I'd argue every position is a push except for the DH where Vidro doesn't even compare to Thomas.
In my eyes a young offensive talent like Jones would add much more to the team than Bedard will over the next few years.
