So now that it’s official and Pedro Martinez has signed a contract with the Phillies, I was eager to see just how quickly he might suit up and take the mound for the reigning champions. And although he is not shown as a probable starter during the 4-game series against the Marlins, I am keeping my fingers crossed that the schedule changes as I really want to see ‘The Fish’ get a hold of him.
I will admit that I am not a fan of Pedro Martinez. I would prefer his brother, Ramon, during his prime over ‘Pete’ any day. With that being said, Martinez did put together some incredible seasons a decade ago and if he can come close to regaining any of that form the Phillies have made a nice move that should help them out during the second half of the season as they work to defend their World Series championship.
