Pirates eyeing Pedro

January 17, 2009

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that the Pittsburg Pirates might reach out to 37 year-old Pedro Martinez.

BRADENTON, Fla. — The Pirates have had contact with Pedro Martinez, one of the most prominent names among free-agent pitchers, and would be interested if the price is right. But talks solely have been exploratory to this point.

Pedro is looking for a deal worth around $7 mil. but you never know, at this point if the Mets sign Ollie or a combination of Garland/Wolf or even Sheets, they might not look into him. He’s willing to come back but I think Omar is trying to move on from Pedro and will only re-sign him if we lose out on those pitchers, which is unlikely.  If that’s the case, with his dissapointing season, his injury, and his age, Pedro might not have anywhere else to go.
