I think the rain over the past five days has made me bitter. I’ve taken a break from building my ark to crank out this short little snippet that should make you happy.

Nothing drives me crazy more than a fan that calls into a sports talk radio show and asks why the Orioles traded Erik Bedard.

…Ever heard of Adam Jones, George Sherrill, Chris Tillman. That’s why.

Erik Bedard has been tearing it up this year for Seattle. He crushed the Birds earlier this year. But, last night the Mariners announced that Erik will be placed on the 15-day DL with shoulder inflammation.

Bedard was 5-2 in 11 starts with a 2.47 ERA.

In typical Erik fashion he comes up with an injury, at least it wasn’t while he was running the bases.
