Pedro just isn't the same pitcher he once was, I mean the guy is afraid to throw a fastball. Pedro and Schilling are both past their prime whereas Prior and Wood are just reaching theirs. Of the 4 pitchers Prior is easily the best of the bunch. Ranking the other 3 is difficult, I would go with Wood then Schilling then Pedro. So all you Boston fans don't get too excited, these guys are old. Pedro and Schillling will soon go the way of Maddux and Glavine and by soon I mean this year.
The contract extension given to Schilling will be an albatross for that franchise until Schilling and Pedro pick out their retirement villas.
You should like either a Redsox hater
, or a Cub homer
Pedro isn't the same? He only posted his 4th best era+ in his career at 212. Yeah, bring out the walker and cane. Prior had a nice 175+, and Wood was at 133+. Neither was as dominent as Pedro last year. Pedro is only 32. That's not old. Looking at whips
and Pedro never faced a pitcher.
Yes indeed, it seems the aging, worn out Pedro, took the kids to school. Prior isn't easily the best of bunch. Pedro is still king.
