It's easy to forget now, but Erik Bedard was one of only a few true bright spots on the 2007 Orioles, a lefty with filthy stuff who had struck out 221 batters, third most in the league. And MacPhail wanted to trade him - felt he had to, really - even though Bedard was exactly the sort of present star that owner Peter Angelos had long been reluctant to exchange for future assets.

They sat for hours, discussing the mutual acquaintances they've made over many years in the game, their philosophies on building a roster and what had become of the once-proud Orioles franchise.
