Bedard won’t pitch vs. O’s today

Just when things got rolling here for baseball this week, with the Orioles out of the gate 3-1 and looking impressive, the season’s first disappointment is here:

If you have tickets for the game today or were heading down to the ballpark to see Erik Bedard pitch, you’re out of luck. Bedard has been scratched for Felix Hernandez.

That’s always one of the fun “special events” that you can’t pre-announce, when a traded starting pitcher makes his first appearance back at home.

I remember Mike Mussina’s first start here as a Yankee. And Mike Flanagan’s first start as a Blue Jay. And Wayne Garland’s first start as a member of the Tribe.

Bummer for anyone heading down today who was juiced about booing Bedard, who had a golden arm but a dour attitude about most things regarding the city and the franchise. He was, by almost every account, a turd except for the six or seven innings he took the ball for the O’s. (Of course, I’m sure the ownership here and the empty ballpark and the losing didn’t help Bedard’s opinion of being an Oriole.)

As a fan, I’m happier these day pulling for Adam Jones and George Sherrill. But it’s a shame Bedard now won’t pitch at Camden Yards in 2008.

That is, unless both teams meet here in the playoffs.

If Kevin Millar says it, I believe it!

Don’t look now, but the Orioles are in the first place!

Hope to see you at the Charm City Classic later this afternoon at the Towson Center!
