Pedro Says Adios to WBC

Manny Acta has confirmed that Pedro Martinez will not be participating in the World Baseball Classic, as reported by

Pedro Martinez is not expected to pitch in the World Baseball Classic, manager Many (sic) Acta confirmed Thursday. "I don't think physically he's up to the challenge," Acta said. "It would be too much to ask."

For Mets fans, this is both good and bad news. The good news is that Pedro can now focus his attention and energy on spring training, and on getting physically ready for the upcoming season. With a starting rotation full of question marks, none is as potentially detrimental to the Mets as an unhealthy Pedro. The bad news of course is that Pedro is now within strinking distance of the season and still unable to pitch competitively.
