Here’s One Of The Most Scathing Reviews Of A Baseball Player You’ll Ever Hear

Before joining Seattle’s ESPN affiliate in 2009, radio host Mike Salk was a member of Boston’s sports media. So when the Red Sox recently completed a trade with the Mariners for injury-plagued pitcher Erik Bedard, it made sense that he would do a Boston radio spot to explain to Red Sox fans what they were getting.

What did we take away from Salk’s evaluation of Bedard? Well…

- He doesn’t like baseball very much.

- He intentionally tanked a recent start for the Mariners.

- He will do terribly in high-pressure situations, like, say, an ALCS game in Yankee stadium.

- He’s a hermit.

- He has bad body language.

- Boston sports media people won’t like him.

- Boston fans won’t like him.

- Dude, seriously, the body language: it’s even worse than John Lackey’s.

- This will not end well.

Here’s the full audio of Salk’s glowing review of Erik Bedard, courtesy of WEEI’s Mut & Merloni show.

    Being an Orioles fan in Baltimore I remember well how Bedard acted when he was here, and Salk is absolutely correct on all counts. In fact, knowing what is pretty well known about Bedard by anyone who’s seen his act, I’m a little surprised the Red Sox wanted him. But I guess if they can win with J.D. Drew they can win with Eric Bedard.
