When Erik Bedard started to warm up in last night’s game I and the group who was watching the game wondered if, since he’s slated for the Houston rotation, he was merely getting some throwing in or something. Of course he came into the game and pitched a three-inning save.

But Bedard himself was somewhat worried about not being able to actually pitch last night. And noted it in colorful terms, quoted by the Houston Chronicle:

“I knew that if I would warm up in the game I was going in. … I didn’t want to get dry-humped and stuff,” Bedard said.

Totally, Erik. No one would have wanted that.
