Is Erik Bedard this big of a jerk?

  1. What do most reporters do when he's antagonistic?

    Great article. And it shows you don't need much cooperation from your subject to write a great article.

    When Carlton started opening up to the press after he retired, we quickly understood why he kept his yap shut all those years. Wonder if Bedard has similar views.

    Obviously it becomes a quick Q and A session, since his A's are at best 3-4 words. He's not necessarily a bad guy or a whacko, he just sometimes gets intentionally uncooperative. And so you then go to his teammates for something. Apparently he's mad that a few years ago the media reported some unnamed teammates questioning the legitimacy of an injury, and ever since... . Again, not a bad guy per se, but definitely not someone you're buddy-buddy with. He's not long for Baltimore anyway.

    I know, I was waiting for that. You're justified, buck. Small town Dixie League Baseball skewed my view growing up, so to speak.

    I haven't heard one good word about the kid from any beat writer who has spoken to him.

    Nailed it.

    First thing I thought when I read it was he learned at Mussina's knee before the original "stupid question ... next" boy moved on to the Big Apple.
