The Case For Erik and the CY Young; The Rundown

Erik Bedard is a on roll, and with his success as of late, he's no doubt a contender for the Cy Young Award this season. Although he'll never win the award for most talkative or for community service, he's doing something special this season for the Birds.

If you get a moment, read the piece, "Here and Now", by Jeff Zrebiec in the Baltimore Sun today on Erik Bedard.

Right now, if I were the Orioles, I'd be working on a way to lock him up now before his asking price becomes absolutely astronomical and other teams come into play.

Bedard is currently leading the league in strikeouts, and has won eight straight.

It mystifies me that he is not getting the national attention he deserves, and playing for the Baltimore Orioles (along with their decade of losing) is the reason.

We have a gem here, it seems to be, and let's hope the Orioles do right by Bedard and most especially the fans.

Bill Ordine in an excellent post on the O, by the Way blog on the Baltimore Sun website illustrates why Bedard should be re-signed; meanwhile, also brings up the Orioles' history of signing pitchers long-term, which has been anything but stellar.

However, Peter Schmuck who wanted Bedard traded is now changing his tune...
