Pedro’s Gives Us Something To Believe In

Let this be the Pedro of old breaking himself in the way he knew best, by working on whatever it was he wanted and not caring about the results.  Let there be one more thunderclap in that golden right arm, one more ten strikeout performance on a hazy summer day, one more outing that makes me call my son into the room and say, “Son, THIS is what greatness looks like.”

Pedro Martinez made his final rehab start today, pitching for the Reading Phillies in front of almost 10,000 fans, and from the looks of it, he was brilliant.  Pedro breezed through five innings, allowing one run on two hits and striking out ten, before running into some trouble in the sixth.  Still, he finished up with six innings under his belt, three earned runs, five hits, and eleven strikeouts.

We might just get that last glimpse at the old Pedro after all.
