Pedro Martinez a Phillie?
If true, it’s not surprising — not when the Phillies are sending the likes of Rodrigo Lopez to the mound. Assuming he’s healthy, Pedro can give the Phils 5-6 competitive innings every five days, and can probably win at least half of them (see: Jamie Moyer).
I shudder to think what a Pedro vs. Mets game might look like. You know he’d turn it up a notch.
Personally, I love watching Pedro, even as an aging, mediocre pitcher. Likely, he wouldn’t have made much of a difference to the Mets’ 2009 season, but he would have at least given me more reason to pay attention to the games in which he pitched. I’d pay to see a broken-down Pedro before I’d pay to see Tim Redding, for example.
