i think thats just a rumor, astros.com is reporting that ed wade has had zero conversations with pedro or his agent so i dont think its got any truth to it... but who knows, they said that about Pudge about a month ago...

Yeah looks like late last night they de-bunked it

Rotoworld:

The Astros said they have had no contact with free agent Pedro Martinez and they will not announce his signing during Wednesday's press conference.

"We have had zero conversations with Pedro," GM Ed Wade said. "I have absolutely no idea where that is coming from." It's coming from Baseball Prospectus, which may have blown it big time by running with this story.

lol

10:56am: John Perrotto, the Baseball Prospectus writer who first ran the Pedro-to-the-Astros story, has issued a mea culpa:

Let’s get this straight right off the top: I was wrong, way wrong about Pedro Martinez being on the verge of signing as a free agent with the Astros.


ill run a retraction I guess as well ;-D
