In today’s Herald, Sean McAdams points out that the Sox were approached by Pedro Martinez’ handlers to check our interest in Pedro II: The Adventure Continues. The response, as you might imagine, was less than enthusiastic.

With a five-man rotation set, Smoltz aiming for a June 1 return, and prized young arms such as Clay Buchholz and Michael Bowden providing depth, the Sox said they had no room for Martinez.

Hell, I’d vote for a re-Pete, if for no other reason than the possibility that he might knock another old man to the ground or drop some science about drilling Babe Ruth in the ass. Although that might be the liquor talking.
