ESPN.com - The Baltimore Sun and Seattle Post-Intelligencer are reporting that Mariners outfielder Adam Jones, the key prospect the Orioles are expected to receive for Bedard, is in Baltimore to take a physical.

The Sun, citing an unnamed source, reported Monday that the trade of Erik Bedard from Baltimore to Seattle is pending only completion of physicals. The newspaper reported that if Jones passes his physical, a trade could be announced as soon as Monday.

If the Mariners do aquire Bedard then their getting a pitching star, this guy was amazing with the Orioles last season, and in my opinion he's only going to get better. But the Orioles do get a couple of good propects especially in Jones, this guy has tons of potential.

Side Note: I live like 10 minutes from where Bedard was born and lives in the off-season.

I'm going to be furious if the Orioles don't make good on this trade. I think he may be the only decent guy they have pitching for them. I understand that they're doing huge purge on their players, but Roberts and Bedard shouldn't go anywhere for a long time.

This is huge for the Mariners. Who do they have in the rotation right now?

It looks like I'm going to be pretty angry soon. The players are in Baltimore and everything is just a matter of the players passing a physical.

AP - Erik Bedard was acquired by the Mariners from the Orioles on Friday in a long-delayed trade for five prospects, according to an Associated Press report.

Baltimore received Adam Jones, who probably will start in center field in opening day. The Orioles also obtained reliever George Sherrill and pitchers Chris Tillman, Tony Butler and Kam Mickolio.

Well it's finally done, it took some time but the Mariners acquired one of the best pitchers in the American League. He's probably going to be their ace now.

The Orioles have decided to re-build so their trading all their stars for prospects.

Brian Roberts is next.

The only reason the Orioles are rebuilding is because Angelos doesn't want to pay those huge salaries.

The M's rotation now consists of Felix Hernandez, Erik Bedard, Miguel Batista, Carlos Silva, and Jarrod Washburn. What was the M's biggest weakness last year has become now one of their biggest assets.

Bedard is really going to help them. I can see the Mariners making the playoffs next year. But I'm not going to make any predictions yet.
