About Last Night.

Well, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that if you don’t get any runs you’re not going to win. Nothing gets by be. You have to write it off as one of those things.

No game today, which gives Pedro Martinez an extra day of rest. It couldn’t hurt.

Frankly, I’m a little bit worried about Martinez. It’s just not there for him with his fastball. He says he doesn’t care about velocity, but if I can outrun the pitches to the plate there’s a problem.

Should the playoffs start tomorrow, would Martinez be in the rotation? Performance and his physical questions say no. His experience and the hope to lightning in a bottle says yes.
