Just got off the plane a short time ago after visiting my father and family near Cleveland. Watched the Browns get slaughtered by the Steelers, just as I remembered it.
Pedro Martinez is pitching well, which if he continues, will take a load off the ballclub. However, they are still short in the rotation. John Maine makes another plea for the fourth starter job on Wednesday in the playoffs.
Him or Oliver Perez. I like Perez in the pen, but I’ve been having second thoughts because Maine can’t get through the sixth anymore.
The odds on Perez imploding are maybe 50/50. They are longer for Maine to pitch six solid since the break.
