ESPN The Magazine's Amy K. Nelson talks with Jonathan Coachman on First Take about new Red Sox acquisition Erik Bedard.
“He is one of the athletes that I’ve interviewed in the past that probably has a disdain for the media more than any other," Nelson explains. "And that’s in some ways even including Barry Bonds. The reason for this is Bedard says he has very little patience for what he says are stupid questions. He can be actually downright rude to the media sometimes.
"Going to Boston in a pennant race where there are huge expectations for this team. That is a really big topic, whether or not Bedard is going to be able to handle this. That’s the more pressing question," says Nelson.
