8:54am: The Erik Bedard trade has had many accompanying micro-rumors as it’s dragged along. The current micro-rumor, courtesy of Roch Kubatko of the Baltimore Sun, is that Bedard is expected to take his physical today. I think we’re all ready for an official announcement.
Jeff Zrebiec says the framework has been agreed upon, and it’s the players we’ve been discussing for the past few days. At any rate we should have an announcement by week’s end.
