Don't Forget about Pedro... [J. Mark English]

As y'all Yankee fans get set for the Rocket to come to the rescue, lets not forget about my New York Metropolitans. Word on the street is that the team's ace, Pedro Martinez, is ahead of schedule and could just be weeks away from his first start. Will ESPN give his minor league starts the same coverage Clemens is getting? If they have any sense of fairness they will.

Imagine though, the Mets, a .650 ball club will be getting a HOF pitcher back into their rotation who for the past eight years has been just as good as Roger Clemens. If Clemens is expected to be a savior, then imagine what Martinez can do for a team that is already playing like one of the best teams in baseball.
