Erik Bedard

I was trolling around the internet this afternoon (slow day), and found this quote on mlbtraderumors.com

"The Orioles' #1 priority for the offseason is to sign ace Erik Bedard to a long-term contract extension.  But if the two parties aren't in the same ballpark, they could exact a king's ransom in a trade.  As I said before, Bedard could be a $20MM+ pitcher if he stays on course through the 2009 season."

I know this is just a pipe dream, but a rotation of Bedard, Francis, Cook, Ubaldo, and Morales in 2008 has me drooling.  Which got me to thinking, what player wouldn't we trade for Bedard?  That rotation looks so much better with Bedard pushing everyone down a notch.

Anyway, I'm curious to hear what people would be willing to trade for Bedard if the Orioles put him on the market.

My first offer is Atkins + Fuentes + Hirsh.  Would the Orioles do that?  Probably not without a budget-friendly contract for Atkins, and even then...

Anyway, it is fun to dream.
