Ah, man, do I ever miss the oft-injured Erik Bedard in the black and the orange. Andy MacPhail has looked like a genius time-and-time again for the trade of our former southpaw ace, and he's been giving the gift of glib to the Seattle press.
Well, now, we have may a classic quote from the Canadian God of the mound...
PEORIA, Ariz. — It wouldn't be entirely accurate to say Erik Bedard hopes his injury woes are fully behind him.
That's exactly where the Mariners pitcher has felt the most pain this past week — in his behind. Bedard hadn't pitched in a Cactus League game since March 5 after his gluteus maximus muscle tightened up on him and made it difficult for the left-hander to throw.
