ESPN.com has a great article today on Erik Bedard and his difficult relationship with the media. I've just recently realized how good Bedard is, since I haven't been watching the Orioles almost at all since May. I think you'd have to say that he's clearly the best pitcher the Os have had since Mike Mussina.
Which makes me feel kind of bad that I haven't been following the team at all. Between Bedard, Markakis, Cabrera, and others, the Orioles have one of the more likable teams in the majors. I feel like I should be watching the games, reading articles, basically following the team at least a little bit. Am I a bad fan because I'm not following a likable team just because they're losing?
