Rangers asked for O's Bedard in Tex trade talks

When the Orioles pursued a trade for Texas Rangers slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira, the Severna Park native who is reportedly headed to the Atlanta Braves, they were told it would take ace pitcher Erik Bedard and nothing less, according to two team sources. The Rangers' asking price had dropped from last year, when they asked for Miguel Tejada and Bedard for Teixeira. However, the Orioles, who have Bedard under contractual control for two more years after this season, still felt the 28-year-old pitcher was too steep a price for Teixeira, who appears primed to test free agency after next season. There also remains a hesitance to trade enigmatic starter Daniel Cabrera, especially when his struggles have lowered his trade value. -- Baltimore Sun

1st time I had heard this...sorry if it was posted before.  Bedard would have been awesome if the Rangers could have persuaded the Orioles to part with him.
