As the title says. Not that this looks to affect the Royals much, but Bedard is one of the best starters in baseball so his moving to the Mariners is big news for all concerned. Especially since I think this would signal an actual, honest-to-Buddha rebuilding program finally taking off in Baltimore.
Adam Jones, a consensus excellent OF prospect, is the centerpiece of the trade. I'll be hunting for updates as soon as we get more info.
