Erik Bedard won't ask for a trade

Recently dropped from the rotation (Paul Clemens will make his first ML start tomorrow at Chicago), Erik Bedard said he would not ask for a trade, but "wouldn't be heartbroken" if it happened.

ESPN's Rumor Central said the Cardinals and Rangers could be interested if Bedard is shopped at a "highly discounted rate."

So the question is: What provides more value - the cash that would come from the Cardinals and/or Rangers, or the ability to let Bedard slog through three innings in relief?
