Or has anyone else heard that the Angels have gained interest in Bedard? I can't imagine giving up too much for the guy. Santana has a high ceiling, Saunders is probably the best #5 in baseball, or at least one of the top 3. What could we give? Rivera? But even if we aquired him, Santana and/os Saunders would be in the deal. And plus, they'd want more than those two, likely with Willits, and or Rivera. Hmm...
Juan Rivera, Reggie Willits, Joe Saunders, and Ervin Santana for Erik Bedard. Hmmm...
SP1: John Lackey
SP2: Kelvim Escobar
SP3: Erik Bedard
SP4: Jon Garland
SP5: Jered Weaver
That's a helluva 1 thru 5. Without a doubt, the best in baseball. Injuries??? Mosely... perhaps Bootcheck filling in. Maybe bring Adenhart up like we did Saunders the past two seasons. It frees up our logjammed outfield. Could this deal get done? Even better question, would the rest of you like it?
