For some reason, I just can't get sold on Eric Bedard. I should be able to. His ERA has gone down each year he has been in the league and so has his WHIP. He has a good strikeout to walk ratio and he is slightly above .500 on his career (which is HOF material these days). Even when you look at his stats on a park adjusted basis, he still turns out okay.

Before he was shut down last year, people said he was on his way to the Cy Young, which is debatable. I just get a little nervous about a guy who hasn't been able to log 200 innings in a season and gets shut down with a lot of season to go (for an injury that many didn't think was that serious). Okay, he is in Baltimore, so that may account for being shut down early, nothing to play for.

Not sure why I am not completely sold on him, but would be nice to have a lefty more reliable than Chacin in the rotation.
