Erik Bedard Is Really Good

I wish we could all just stop talking about this and move on. But we can't. And neither can Ken Rosenthal.

The Mariners' quest to land Orioles lefty Erik Bedard is on hold -- and possibly off -- due to the involvement of O's owner Peter Angelos, according to major-league sources.

The reasons for Angelos' hesitation are unclear. However, Angelos' first choice is to sign Bedard to a contract extension, according to one source. The owner was under the impression that Bedard was unwilling to consider such a deal, the source says, but recently learned that the pitcher would entertain an offer if the Orioles were willing to extend him at least five years.

We've been talking about Erik Bedard since the beginning of December.

This is so stupid.
