To Dave in Spain: (Future pitching questions). Interesting idea on extending Pedro. The assumption, of course, is his health. Pedro has said he’s done after his contract, so the ball will be in his court. If he wants to, he’s back. … On Santana, if he’s on the market the Mets will back a pitch for him.
