Time to make a move on Bedard

Now that Johan Santana is securely in Queens, N.Y., for the next seven seasons, it's time for another long-rumored, long-talked-about deal to go through.

That trade is the Erik Bedard move from Baltimore to Seattle.

This rumor hasn't had the shelf life of Santana's myriad destinations, but the actual trade, which would send Bedard to Seattle for Mariners top prospect Adam Jones and a handful of other players, has been in an on-again, off-again cycle more suited to a high school relationship.

Whatever the holdup is, the teams need to work through it and either get the deal done or squash it once and for all. And if temperamental Orioles owner Peter Angelos is behind this deal not going through, woe be unto all Orioles' fans, including The Times' Teddy Allen and Lee Hiller.
