Physicals = Deal Near Completion

Baltimore Sun:
The long-awaited blockbuster trade that would send Erik Bedard to the Seattle Mariners for five players is finally nearing completion. According to a league source, Adam Jones, the young outfielder who is the centerpiece of the Mariners' offer, is in Baltimore today and the deal is now pending results of physicals.
BALTIMORE -- Multiple published reports indicate that the long-rumored Erik Bedard trade may reach completion as early as Monday afternoon. Both and The Baltimore Sun have reported that key players have undergone physical examinations and that the trade is complete pending results, sending Bedard to the Seattle Mariners.

Geoff Baker:
It took a while, but we've finally gotten it confirmed that Adam Jones is indeed in Baltimore taking his physical today. Would have liked to have this out to you last night, but unfortunately, we could not get anyone to verify it. Finally, we can.

What else is there to say at this point? I'm glad this is finally happening, but I wasted most of my excitement over a week ago. Once I see a press conference I'll be bouncing around again.

There are other reports out there saying essentially the same things. Also, just when I started to doubt the inclusion of George Sherrill, it seems pretty certain that he is indeed in the deal.

More later, hopefully.
