Not surprisingly, Jamie Moyer was the one bumped from the rotation to make room for diva Pedro Martinez’s return Wednesday at Chicago from the disabled list. Moyer will move to the bullpen when pitches.

MARTINEZ: Diva gets ball tomorrow.

That was the inevitable decision when the Phillies said rookie J.A. Happ (8-2, 2.74) would stay in the rotation.

As bad as the Mets’ starting rotation has been, I’m glad they opted to pass on re-signing Martinez, whose time had come and gone in New York.

Do you think the Phillies will disrupt their chemistry by shuffling the rotation to accommodate Martinez?

I believe that’s entirely possible.

  1. Disrupt their chemistry by switching the #5 starters? I really don’t think so.

  2. I don’t think so john. Moyer, despite his 10 wins, has been pretty awful. Moving him to the pen could actually help them, since he is OK in short stints.
    The question is how effective will pedro be?
    The K’s in the minors were nice, but that was AA and lower competition.
    And his peripherals were not that great.
