The Mets’ brass keep saying whatever they get from Pedro Martinez is a bonus.
I’m not so sure I agree with that. Even though they won’t go with five starters in the postseason, John Maine and Oliver Perez aren’t sure things. And, I always wonder about the 40-somethings. So far they’ve held up.
Given all that, I’m curious to see where Pedro will be this time next month. I certainly don’t expect vintage Pedro, but if he can give them six innings without difficulty, I would take it.
