Mariners' bid for pitcher Erik Bedard hits snag

SEATTLE - The Seattle Mariners' efforts to obtain Baltimore's ace left-hander Erik Bedard, seemingly on track over the weekend for a blockbuster trade centered on Seattle outfielder Adam Jones, have hit a snag.

Jones was reported Monday afternoon to still be in Venezuela, rather than heading to Baltimore for a physical exam originally scheduled for Monday or Tuesday, but then canceled.

Webber set to return to Golden State

OAKLAND, Calif. - More than 13 years after Chris Webber demanded to leave the Golden State Warriors, the free-agent forward is all set to return.

Webber sent an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday night confirming he will rejoin the Warriors and coach Don Nelson, who won a power struggle with the former No. 1 draft pick in their messy first stint with the franchise.

The five-time All-Star is expected to be with the Warriors when they visit Houston today, though it's uncertain whether he'll play.
