Phillies Should Pass on Pedro Martinez

For the simple reason that you don't know whether the guy who wowed in the NLCS against the Dodgers or several weeks' rest or the guy who looked well past his prime against the Yankees in the World Series will show up. For that reason, the Phillies should pass.

A .500 team with a chance to break through who's willing to take a risk might opt for Pedro.

But the Phillies need someone more predictable.

And better.

And it hurts to say that because of all of Pedro Martinez's accomplishments and because he's a lock to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Pedro recently said he'd like to return to Philadelphia.

The Phillies should say thank you.

And then no thank you.
