Re: Dodgers, Orioles discussing trade for Eric Bedard
Sorry, but I'm not trading Votto, Bruce, EE or mix in Hamilton..........I'm not trading 3 young big bats for one pitcher. I think that asking price is too high. I'd trade Hamilton and Bailey but not everyone else. In other words, I'd trade Bailey and one position player for either Bedard, Kazmir, or Peavy. Otherwise, no go. Part of the foundation of this team has to be built by guys we've developed and have cheaply for a few years to manage the salary cap since we're small market.
I'd still love to add one of those pitchers, but at the right price. Not going to be happy about some kind of Herschel Walker trade that completely mortgages our future.
I also agree that in 2009 we will have more financial flexibility to add free agents.
Who's on first?
