Don’t rule out Pedro Martinez just yet. While some Mets’ officials continue to claim that the marriage has ended, one person familiar with the discussions said Sunday that the Mets are among the teams that have begun to request financial requirements with the 37-year-old right-hander.I'd be more comfortable with Pedro over Livan Hernandez, Freddy Garcia or Jon Niese. If healthy, he'd be a fine fifth starter. The team would not be asking him to be the ace of the staff again, only the back end starter.
Heck, he can throw 10 miles an hour faster than Garcia.
