Then PeteAbe added this:
Erik Bedard, the one-time ace of the Baltimore Orioles, is on the market after a disastrous two-year tenure with the Seattle Mariners in which he started only 30 games. But Bedard had a 3.24 ERA in those games. He had shoulder surgery in August.
Justin Duchscherer, a two-time All-Star for Oakland, missed all of 2009 recovering from elbow surgery that was compounded by depression.
Again, no accusations, but just similar to my thoughts. Except I thought the write-up here was better. I might be biased, though.
