It is no secret the Philadelphia Phillies have now officially signed Pedro Martinez to a one year, $1 million deal plus incentives.
What is making the Phillies look almost laughable is the had to put him on the 15-day disabled list with a mild right shoulder strain.
According to the SNY ticker, there has been no indication when or where he will begin his rehab assignments.
Ay! Pobrecito! Not our problem, for the moment anyway.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Is this legit? Could the Phillies just be holding him for a little later?
I doubt it. They need the help with their crippled pitching staff. The crippling continues. Does this mean they pursue Roy Halladay?
I will go on record to say I will scream bloody murder if that were to happen. I would be fed up. I just do not think the Phillies have enough to get him. The Toronto Blue Jays are pretty much holding him for ransom.
Oh and something to laugh about. It seems the diva in Pedro showed up to Philly. He was late for his own press conference.
