Thinking of this from the Mets perspective, they have a lot of $$$ wrapped up in Pedro. The only way I'd let him is if he signed something saying that if he got hurt in this tournament the Mets would be released from paying part of his salary.
Pedro doesn't have control problems. He's a 3-time Cy Young winner. He has health problems. If I were Mets ownership, this would concern me.
