    Pedro Martinez for 2nd half of season?

    Yay or Nay?


    I wouldn't be opposed to it if we could pick him up on the semi-cheap. Potential bullpen help? Thoughts?

    Nay. He wouldnt pitch in the bullpen, and we arent going to pay him what he will want.

    I doubt he's got more than 5 innings in him either.

    You'd have to pay him some serious $$$ and he'd be replacing the most expensive starter, Harang.

    Not gonna happen.

    The idea is intriguing, but our bullpen is already taxed enough, and Pedro, on his best days at this point, won't go more than 6 innings.

    I would guess Travis Wood would be more effective if the Reds are going to give up on Harang. Plus Pedro's probably headed for philadelphia.

    I got a feeling that the Dodgers will land Pedro this year.

    Pedro hasn't been the same since his 2006 season.

    Pedro's 5 innings are better than Harang's 5 innings
