The Red Sox are “all over” Erik Bedard

Man, they should really get off of him. He gets hurt so damn easily!

Of course, Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi may be speaking figuratively here, suggesting that the Sox are eager to make a deal for the Mariners’ lefty. The Mariners are certainly preparing for such a thing, as Rosenthal and Morosi report that M’s scouts have been checking out Sox prospects recently.

Bedard is certainly a risk. He hasn’t pitched in over a month thanks to an injury, shockingly enough.  But if he can pitch for the next two months, he could be a great pickup. He has a 3.00 ERA and 85/26 K/BB ratio in 15 starts. And he’s way cheaper than Ubaldo Jimenez.
