Pedro is a different pitcher this year then I ever saw in boston. It was great to see him dig deep into the tank today to pull off the win before the break. He has been on the shaky side of the "elite" pitchers the last few weeks, but I expect him to come to out strong the beginning of the second half, and willie will get him some rest where-ever he can.
Thats one thing I've got to note about Willie, he's been pretty big on getting players rest when they need it this year. Now if he can only work on some decent base management skills
One concern I do have, is how Pedro reacts if/when the mets fade from the playoff pitcher. As stated above, he seems to have a different attitude towards the game in NY then he ever did in Boston... but will he revert back to his old pedro ways come august & the mets are 12 back?
