Remember how before last season, the Mariners traded Adam Jones, George Sherrill, a hot prospect named Chris Tillman, and the rights to all future Bavasi children to the Baltimore Orioles for Erik Bedard? The trade sucked at the time and continued to suck through last season, as Ichiro rightly noted in the imaginary Mariner Player Hater of the Year speech. And even though Bedard's having a great season, the trade's continued suckage was brought home, literally, last night in the M's game vs. the Orioles. Final score: Adam Jones 1, Mariners 0.
Oh, and for good measure, Sherrill got the save last night--his eleventh of the season--with yet another scoreless inning.
