Erik Bedard, 2007 Topps Allen and Ginter #112
After the game, Bedard gave an honest, blunt explanation of his decision, as he typically does:
"I've had three shoulder surgeries. I'm not going over 110 (pitches). I'd rather pitch a couple more years than face another batter."
I can see his point, but I wonder how many loudmouths whose livelihood does not depend on the integrity of their left shoulder will hammer him for thinking that way...and especially for having the nerve to admit it.
