Ever been served with legal papers? It’s not fun. Kind of throws you off your game for a while. Erik Bedard didn’t have a great game last night against the Orioles. I wonder if this had anything to do with it:
Hours before taking the mound for the reeling Red Sox against the Orioles Tuesday night at Fenway Park, pitcher Erik Bedard was served with papers in a child support case, The Post has learned. Bedard was served with papers from Massachusetts Probate and Family Court at Fenway Park at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
OK, fine, so he started out well enough and it’s highly probably that Josh Reddick’s error on the Vlad Guerrero liner that led to Bedard’s 51-pitch third inning was every bit as rattling as the legal documents. But I’m sure they didn’t help.
