Pedro Plans to pitch

April 6, 2010

Pedro Martinez has announced his intent to pitch this season. Last season the 38 year old future hall of famer made a mid season appearance with the Phillies and went 5-1 with an ERA of 3.63.He will begin a throwing regiment this week and hopes to entice a contender to take a chance on him down the stretch. He wants to pitch on the East Coast and it would not surprise me if the Phillies reacquire him. There would also be a bunch of people that would like to see him back with the Red Sox. ( The back end of their rotation is sketchy at best) It would also be interesting to see him land in the Bronx. If the injury bug should bite the Yankees would be the only way I could see it happening as the Yankees on paper anyhow have the best rotation in the American League.

Wherever he lands he will surely bring alot of media attention with him and will fill some empty seats. Im putting my money on a return to Philadelphia,


Phils looking for some outfield help.

jonesnSeems the Philadelphia Phillies may have some interest in both Gary Sheffield and Andruw Jones. To Replace recently release Geoff Jenkins.

Sheffield was released yesterday by the Detroit Tigers and Jones is competing with Frank Catalanato for a spot on the 25 man roster with the Texas Rangers. From what I have been hearing it seems that Jones most likely will win that spot, however that doesn’t mean that couldn’t change if the Phillies want to make a deal for him.

I would think Sheffield is the better option for thePhillies offensively, however there still is the question on whether or not he will be able to preform in the field .  Here’s an Idea, Ruben Amaro Jr the Phillies new Gm should call up Brian Cashman and see what they have in trade for Melky Cabrera who recently lost his starting CF job to Rookie Brett Gardner.  Now I’m not saying I have heard anything like this but If it comes true just remember who called it first.
