Bedard to Seattle…finally

February 08, 2008 | Drew Forrester

You can read the blog below (Singing a new song) to learn how I feel about how the whole thing shook down, but it’s now official and Erik Bedard is an erstwhile member of the Mid Atlantics.

I’m not sure how we’ll all feel about this trade on February 8, 2011, but I can tell you that on February 8, 2008 it makes total sense to move Bedard on and continue the team’s re-tooling by bringing in five players from the Mariners.

The local 9 are going to lose a lot this season.

But, unlike the previous 10 seasons, at least this year they’ll be losing with a plan.

There’s something to be said for that.

Let’s just hope they don’t borrow the manual from their neighbors across the way and “change their mind” on how to get the baseball franchise back on track.

I think (hope like hell) they’re on to something now.
