Bedard and the invented media controversy
Now maybe this is me being cranky because I finally saw a doc about this sickness and the options were bad and worse, but I don’t care at all if Bedard gives good quote or not as long as he pitches well and doesn’t commit any crimes that involve hurting other people. Ibanez and Bloomquist are well-paid to be the public face of the franchise and provide quality post-game interview content.
This is the same kind of baloney that gets peddled about Ichiro not being a leader because he’s quiet, not demonstrative, always uses an interpreter when he does interviews, and frequently gives interesting and thoughtful comments that defy easy dissection for quotability.
None of this matters.
