Bedard To Join Jays In 2010?
Blue Jays play-by-play guy Jamie Campbell has a blog, and he's got an interesting rumor up today. Campbell speaks of a "prominent member of the Orioles organization" telling him to expect Erik Bedard in a Blue Jays uniform for the 2010 season.
Campbell points out Bedard's Canadian roots and the Orioles' inability to sign him long-term as factors. He sees a possible rotation of Roy Halladay, A.J. Burnett, Bedard, and two youngsters in 2010.
Campbell notes that Burnett can opt out of his contract after the 2008 season. He'd be walking away from three years and $36MM. If he stays relatively healthy and keeps his ERA in the low 4s, you can bet he'll top 3/36.
