This Should Be Fun to Watch

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

The Phillies stole the baseball headlines today by inking veteran free agent pitcher Pedro Martinez to a contract for the rest of the season worth $1 million, with $1.5 million in incentives.

Whether or not Martinez throws well for the Phillies from his first start to the end of the season remains to be seen, but it will be fun to watch his progress (and hear his thoughts) along the way.

Martinez starts his Phillies career on the 15 day DL, but that is more of a procedural move to get him some "rehab" starts in the minor league system.

I have grown to be a fan of this move and am anxious to see the Martinez Experiment develop into a possible success.
