Everyone is making a big deal about Pedro Martinez having started his first spring training game yesterday. Pedro pitched well but I thinkt the more important story will come out today. That is that more important than Pedro’s start is how he will feel the day after. Everyone knows that a not perfectly in tune Pedro is better than most pitchers anyway so to have him pitch his way into shape isn’t a big deal. What is a big deal is how his ailing toe reacts to having toed the rubber in real game action. we shall get an answer to that some time today.
