It took what seemed like an eternity, but Pedro Martinez is finally back!
He is slated to start on Monday unless he feels sluggish tomorrow after todays bullpen session.
Pedro said "If my arm doesn’t fall off, I will pitch on Monday." he also said "I miss my teammates, I can’t stand to be one more day without my team."
He had a very impressive bullpen session that featured an assortment of curve-balls, change-ups, and a fastball that was clocked in the low 90’s on the radar gun.
Wilie Randolph, Rick Peterson and Omar Minaya were all very pleased with the results, and after a short meeting, the decision was made to start Pedro on Monday.
There was one more thing that Pedro said during his interview. He said that if his change-up was as good as it was today, he can get anybody in the game out!
I don’t know about you guys, but this Mets fan is absolutely stoked!!
