Pedro to Start Game 3 for Phillies

The Phillies have announced that Pedro Martinez (former Mets great), will start game 3 of the division series on Saturday night in Colorado against the Rockies.

That is a puzzling decision on the part of the Phillies:
  • J.A Happ although a rookie, posted a 12-4 record with a 2.93 ERA.
  • Joe Blanton was 12-8 with a 4.05 ERA.
  • Pedro was 5-1 with a 3.63 ERA but only pitched 44 innings in 9 starts all year.  He missed a start due to a strained neck.  You never know, but I don't like his chances in Coors Field in Denver.
This is a real snub, especially to the veteran Joe Blanton, who pitched 195 innings in 31 starts.
