    He will throw a certain number of pitches, have a higher proportion of strikes to balls, give up some hits, possibly walk some batters and strike others out, and the Indians may or may not score on him at some point.  He will get some IPs, and shake off a couple of signs.

    He will walk out to the mound and walk back to the dugout at the beginning and end of each half inning.  There.  I put myself out there.

    He will probably throw 60 to 80 pitches--I would hope that would be about 4 to 6 innings. If he only gets into the second it will give you guys something to complain about. If he goes more hopefully you will say--good outing. Give the guy a break no matter what he does.
    Hopefully he doesn't read any of this dung heap that appears on this thread opr most of the others.

      I'm kind of wondering who will get the bigger ovation at the start the game,Bedard or Masterson.
       A lot of Sox fans still like Masterson including me.I'd love to see him back in Boston at some point.But I'm hoping he doesn't do too good tonight.

    He's on a 75-80 pitch count.  About innings, 5ER, loss to Masterson who's having a great season.

    Funny!

    I bet the ball comes out of his hand well, too.

    Re: Your expectations for Erik Bedard tonight.

    I think Tito has already given us a forshadowing, mentioning his pitch count in his last outing.

    If things go smoothly he may get through the 6th inning.  If he throws 30-40 pitches in the first two innings ... he may not get to the 5th.

    But Tito says he's fit ... so he might just let him stay out longer ... like he does sometimes.

    At least he's not a neophite ....nerves shouldn't be a factor.

    6 solid innings would be nice, but I don't want to get ahead of myself. Especially if it looks like they are gonna keep him under 90 pitches (85?) who knows.

    finally, a realist. bedard is not going to make sox fans forget buchholz.
    hopefully, the sox score 8+ runs tonight and win with another walk-off.

    Yankees' Alex Rodriguez playing poker is only a big deal because he has proven to be a lightning rod

    Jim Rich

    Thursday, August 4th 2011, 4:00 AM

    Why is everybody always picking on Alex Rodriguez? Who cares if he plays high-stakes poker? 

    Should MLB be probing into what Alex Rodriguez does away from the field and the clubhouse? Absolutely. Who's to say he's not gambling in the clubhouse or on team charters. Nothing good can come of that
    No way. What he does away when he's not in uniform is nobody's business, unless he's breaking the law. If that's the case, let the cops handle it
    He's a lightning rod for controversy, so he brought this upon himself

    Maybe Alex Rodriguez played in a card game where poker pros and Hollywood big shots had fist fights over $500,000 debts while snorting cocaine off of their chip stacks.

    Maybe he didn't.

    Either way, who cares?

    Of the millions of people who play poker outside the regulated confines of American casinos, why does A-Rod always end up cast as the degenerate villain?

    The same thing happened in the fall of 2005 when the Daily News reported that the Yankees superstar was frequenting Big Apple card dens. The Bombers brass and MLB honchos huffed and puffed - "No one admonished him," one source said at the time, "but he was made aware that this could put him in an unflattering light or look bad in the media" - but they ultimately found no grounds for discipline.

    "There's nothing he's doing that violates the morals clause," one baseball lawyer said in November of 2005. "Mostly it's just stupid. Why put himself in a position like that? Why doesn't he go play in an apartment somewhere?"

    It seems A-Rod had taken that advice as he hasn't been spotted since in what's left of the New York City underground poker scene. Yet, here he is, getting heat now for playing in games held in his or an acquaintance's apartment.

    It's silly to suggest that A-Rod, with his $264 million in career earnings, is someone whom we should feel too much pity for, but all of this poker persecution does seem a bit selective.

    Over the past seven years, I have been in underground clubs with former Jet Jonathan Vilma, former Net Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy, now of the Pacers. Those sightings ended up reported in the Daily News, yet did not elicit calls for investigations or suspensions of any of the athletes involved. Nor should they have. But that begs this question: Why is Rodriguez's poker playing being viewed as seedy or criminal?

    In New York, as well as California - two of the three states where Rodriguez has been alleged to have played - it is not illegal to participate in underground or home games. In Florida, where it is alleged that the Yankees slugger had hosted a game at his Miami pad, it is against the law to own, operate or manage a game where pots exceed $10. In theory, this is where A-Rod could find himself in some trouble. The Florida Attorney General's office would not comment specifically on reports of Rodriguez's game.

    It would seem unlikely that someone hosting a poker game at their home, regardless of the reportedly astronomical stakes involved, would garner much attention from authorities. The majority of laws concerning poker in most states are either unclear or not heavily enforced. As sources in the NYPD vice squad have told me, the only time law enforcement cares about poker games is when there are other illegal activities such as narcotics use, bookmaking or organized crime.

    MLB sources have said that the FBI is also investigating the high-stakes games in which A-Rod has allegedly played. The feds' interest, however, likely stems from a pending lawsuit involving crooked hedge-fund manager Brad Ruderman, who allegedly hosted the Beverly Hills games. A-Rod is not the target of the suit.

    So what to make of this latest handwringing over whether there is something wrong with A-Rod's poker habits?

    There are probably many people - some maybe even inside the Yankees organization - who would love to see Alex Rodriguez take a huge fall for this. But unless there is something more nefarious lurking beneath the surface here, Rodriguez, hate him or love him, is just a guy who likes to play poker.

    If that's a crime, then we better start building more prisons.

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/6831651/new-york-yankees-bet-alex-rodriguez-worth-field-trouble-were-right

    Well Blab, er I mean Babe you might try reading the above link entitled "A-Rod is Yankees $305 million migraine"

    Now maybe its just me, but if I invest $305 million in an investment for a human resource (the way a businessperson looks at it, and make no mistake; baseball is about business first) I might be a little put off by my investment playing in an illegal card game with illegal drugs and a highly charged violent atmosphere. This isn't exactly A-Rod being fed popcorn by a movie star. This has all that makings of a real disaster about to happen. Since A-Rod does not possess the judgment to discern that this is not something he should do, Selig, being sort of an adult and all, warned him to stay out of these situations.

    A-Rod has been in the USA long enough to understand English (unlike Sammy Sosa when confronted by the congress) so he most likely got Selig's point. But, this is A-Rod we are talking about. Since he considers himself an elite athlete, the common rules do not apply. Back in the 60's Bowie Kuhn (then commissioner) negated many of Charles O. Finley's (owner of the Kansas City/Oakland Athletics/A's) citing the "for the good of Baseball" rule. It made sense then, and it makes sense now.

    Suspend A-Rod for 10 games and make him an example for all that prima donnas in professional sports.

    By the way, for the answer to the question, I do not expect much from Bedard tonight being his second rehab start. 4 innings, 5 earned runs, 82 pitches. He will get better as we go along.

    I am not denying that Arod is an idiot, but playing poker is not illegal.

    And if Arod was on the red flops you guys would all be defending him right now.

    Actually, the incident happened in Los Angeles (more accurately Beverly Hills). In California there are legal "Poker Clubs" and Indian Casinos, but playing cards outside of these venues is strictly illegal. So, palying poker, as he was, is against the law where he was playing it. The cocaine thing might have been illegal also.

    Hate to say it and I hope I'm wrong, but Bedard will probably need a few more days to recover 100%

    That said:

    80-85 pitches, 4.2 IP, BB, 2 SO, 6 H, 3 ER

    But he'll probably finish the season with the sox around 3-1, 3.80 ERA

    Oh, yeah.  That too.  And the catcher will have it go into his mitt, and he will then throw it back, and Bedard will catch all of those, too.

    Actually, you couldn't be more wrong. In New York, as well as California, it is not illegal to participate in underground or home games.

    And if he's not doing the cocaine, he's not doing anything illegal.
