    Pedro an Astro?

    Maybe?

    8:25pm: John Perrotto of Baseball Prospectus says the Astros are close to an agreement with Pedro Martinez.

    6:34pm: According to MLB.com's Alyson Footer, the Astros scheduled a press conference for tomorrow morning at 8:45am CST. Footer says the Astros confirmed it's not about Ivan Rodriguez. Any guesses?

    I like that the Astros are spending short money to see what's left in the tank of guys like Pedro and Pudge. It may amount to nothing, but I respect the "why the hell not" approach they're taking.

    As a fan it certainly makes them more interesting that's for sure.

    I want nothing to do with Pedro. He is a pitching diva with very little left in his tank. From the reports I heard out of Boston he really was his own man and not a great team mate. For the money I would pay Pedro I would put Mario Soto on a private charter plane every couple of weeks to mentor our young pitchers.

    I find it odd that there has been so much speculation around a couple of WBC innings pitched by Pedro. The only way I would add him on the team would be after June 1st so that he doesn't flame out during the middle of the season.

    TUESDAY, 9:35pm: Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle talked to Astros GM Ed Wade, who said the team has had "zero discussions" on the Pedro front. Martinez is not close to signing with the Astros. De Jesus Ortiz was also able to determine in talking to owner Drayton McLane that he is not selling the team or firing, hiring, or signing anyone. The press conference also has nothing to do with steroids. MLB.com's Alyson Footer also confirmed that the Astros are not close to an agreement with Pedro.

    Meanwhile, Manny Ramirez spoke to Pedro and learned that the pitcher is down to two options (MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reporting). SI.com's Jon Heyman wrote Monday that the Mets and Dodgers seem to be the likely possibilities.

    Good, I hope Pedro does not sign with the Astros. That's exactly what they need to make them somewhat of a contender and I'm sure he'd come relatively cheap.

    Maybe on the roster, but not in the budget.
