Pedro’s Been Worth the Money

Pedro Martinez pitched six and two-thirds innings of three-run ball Tuesday night against the Nationals, leaving with a 4-3 lead.

When it rains, it pours. That’s definitely the case for the 2009 Mets. I joked with a friend who’s a big Mets fan recently that all they needed was Johan and Frankie to go down to complete the injury circle. Now all I have to say is there’s still about five weeks left for K-Rod…Read More
