Erik Bedard himself, who told Marc Brassard of Le Droit, a French-language newspaper in Ontario, that he has indeed agreed to terms with the Mariners.

Since the Ontarian Newspaper is in French, Kirsten Jackson of the Seattle Times provided a loose translation of the French written article. 

If he successfully passes a physical exam today in Arizona, Erik Bedard will be back with the Mariners of Seattle in 2010.

The left-handed pitcher of Navan has confirmed that he accepted a contract of one year for $1.5 million with the club that acquired his services from Baltimore in exchange for five players.

From Bedard:
"I am truly happy. It was my first choice to return to Seattle," he confided yesterday when he was en route to Peoria, Arizona. "I think the team will be really good this season. I very much like the direction the team is going.''

I just hope this doesn't turn into another futile year with a remarkable pitcher who is befuddled with injury problems.
