Pedro Martinez won't pitch in 2010, still open for 2011

Jul 21, 2010, 6:12 PM EDT

Mike Silverman of the Boston Herald reports that Pedro Martinez has ruled out pitching in 2010. The reason: “Martinez, who will turn 39 in October, decided that he was enjoying the
time off with his family this summer too much to embark on a comeback
for the second season in a row.” However, he said that he’s “wide open” to pitching in 2011.

I guess he anticipates getting tired of spending time with his family come February.  Hey, I’ve got a family and I love them, but I can see where he’s coming from.

Left unanswered in all of this is what team in their right mind is going to take a chance on a Pedro Martinez with over a year’s worth of rust on him in 2011, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.

    The only way a team could hope to come out ahead in a deal with Pedro is to sign him for league minimum with lots of performance incentives. This guy was a has been 5 years ago, but most of these guys don’t know when to walk away from the game.
