You should really change your exclamation point in the thread title to a question mark.

from MVN.com...
Pedro Martinez, SP [NYM]
Injury: Shoulder
Expected Return: Early/Mid-August
Analysis: If and when Pedro makes another miraculous return from another major injury, he will likely do so with historical panache: he needs just two strikeouts to reach 3,000 for his career. My instinct is to say that it’s easy to forget, but in reality, it isn’t — the 1999 season of Pedro Martinez was the finest I’ve ever seen by a starting pitcher. As a refresher, he went 23-4 with a 2.07 ERA, 313 strikeouts compared to only 37 walks, earning the pitching doppelganger to a Triple Crown. Eat your heart out, Brandon Webb.

As hinted, he has the distinction of being able to effectively pitch back from injury. After his last rotator cuff injury in 2001, he rebounded to go 20-4 with a 2.26 ERA. Last year was a trying one for Pedro, as he suffered from injuries to his hip, both calves, and ultimately, his shoulder. Before any of these, he was 5-1 with a 2.50 ERA.

To help expedite his return to the mound, Pedro has added 10 pounds of muscle to his historically wiry frame. Throughout the process, he has been ahead of schedule, tossing simulated games and bullpen sessions without any setbacks. His simulated game on Friday is scheduled to be his last, and after that, he’ll throw a few games in the minors. In other words, the suspense shouldn’t be too long for strikeout #3000.

Interesting tidbit was posted on Yahoo today regarding Pedro:

Jul 20 Martinez was supposed to shut down his rehab program, starting on July 3, for a week to 10 days, a mental-health respite coinciding with baseball's All-Star break. But he is still on a hiatus, leading to questions about when and if he'll ever be ready to rejoin the Mets following last October's rotator cuff surgery, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Recommendation: "It's his body. He's going to give us feedback when he's ready," Mets GM Omar Minaya said Thursday, while assuring that Martinez would return this season. "You've got to remember the next phase of this, once the clock starts you have 30 days (to complete his minor-league rehab starts)." Pedro has been throwing lightly during his sabbatical and will throw a simulated game where he arrives in Port St. Lucie, though no one knows exactly when that will be. The plan is still for Martinez to return in August, but as we approach the latter part of July, unless he starts his rehab shortly, even that time frame may be optimistic.

I hope they're just being pessimistic otherwise this could really bite! :~(

Unfortunately, Omar Minaya greatly downplayed Pedro's return on the Mets' telecast this evening. He basically said that anything we get out of Pedro in 2007 is great, but that they are focusing on having him back for 2008...

A stark contrast to the optimism espoused all season long as to how well PMart was progressing...

wow, very contrasting reports...

Minaya and randolph seem to be more cautious when discussing issues of this type....not pessimistic, but cautios. Probably to not give the sense that the Met expectations are not to have him come back and be the savior of the team.
