The extent of trade discussions between the [Mariners and Red Sox] is not known, but several Mariners pitchers are drawing significant interest from multiple clubs. Right-hander Doug Fister, in particular, is a target of virtually every team seeking rotation help, sources said.If my memory serves me correctly, I believe Bedard never wanted anything to do with the bight lights of NYC, but if he can handle this city he would certainly be an upgrade.. In 15 starts this season the left-hander is 4-6 with a 3.00 ERA. In 90 innings pitched he's allowed 30 earned runs on just 74 hits, wakled 26 and struck out 85.
However, Boston's primary focus could be left-hander Erik Bedard, who has not pitched since June 27 because of a strained left knee but will come off the disabled list Friday night to pitch against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Sox are “all over” Bedard, one source said, and both the Sox and New York Yankees are expected to scout Bedard on Friday night.
