The Boston Red Sox have finally added a starter to their team something which they have needed for quite some time after they managed to trade. They have acquired the oft injured left hander Erik Bedard from the Seattle Mariners in a deal which involved three teams prior to the deadline on Sunday. The Red Sox was originally trying for Rich Harden but that deal fell apart later on Saturday night they also got Josh Fields the right hander and the 2008 first round draft pick. Football odds

The manager for Boston Terry Francona said “He was real tough on us,”"He’s a guy who has shown he can pitch in the American League East. First half of the year before he tweaked that knee he was pretty solid,” Francona said. “His stuff was good. We’re excited.”

Francona did mention that he would first speak to Bedrand prior to lining up his rotation for the coming week. Football spreads

Francona said “I know that (general manager) Theo (Epstein) talked to him and he sounded like he was excited. We’ll kind of build him back up,” “He just came off the DL Friday. We’ll build him back up and get him in there.”

The right hander Juan Rodriguez and the catcher Federowicz as well as Stephen Fife go over to the Los Angeles Dodgers who have dealt of Trayvon Robinson to the Red sox. Then The Red Sox sent Robinson as well as OF Chih Hsien to Seattle. Football lines

Boston leads in the AL East but needs a starter in order to help shore up the rotation with Daisuke Matsuzaka out for the season as well as Clay Buchholz who is on the disabled list.

Epstein said on Sunday night “Clearly, we have some concern for Clay,” “It’s been a couple of months now, which is longer than we expected it to be. We’re still awaiting some more feedback and another opinion. I think we have a feel for what might be going on, but Clay is seeing another expert (Robert Watkins) to get his opinion and then we’re all going to put our heads together this week.” “I’ll refrain from answering in too much detail until we have a chance to talk to Clay and we have a chance to talk things through … we think we’re in the process of getting to the bottom of it, and we’re all going to put our heads together early this week and talk about it with Clay before we discuss it publicly.”
