The numbers will tell you that Pedro Martinez did not have his best stuff tonight. 7 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 1 HB, 6 K. This is further proof that there are lies, damned lies and statistics. Pedro Martinez was on tonight. If not for pure dumb luck and a pure dumb left fielder, Pedro wouldn't have surrendered a single run. He was consistently between 90 and 95 with his fastball, and his curveball was just filthy. Pedro had something to prove tonight, and he proved it very nicely.
Wakefield (probably) goes Friday. Time to break out the brooms.

I had Simmons' comment on my mind last night. He must have been DYING during Pedro's last two hitters as they combined for like 25 pitches. Only could've been more tense had Vlad and Garrett Anderson been the two hitters instead of Eckstein and Choke Chone Figgins.
