What's wrong with Pedro...?

Postby beltrans_boy » Thu Apr 15, 2004 7:40 pm

He's getting lit up tonight (2 runs, 3 walks, 2 innings so far, and he's getting hit hard to boot). His velocity is down, and he hasn't looked very impressive (save the Blue Jays game). Do the Orioles just have his number, or is Pedro due for a disappointing season?

I got him pretty cheap in a trade, but I'm still concerned. What are your thoughts?

He's not really getting hit hard, he's only allowed 2 hits.
As far as god is concerned, if he starts using an energy consuming kind of blower or electric blanket, I’ll kick his ass too.

I think this year will be the start of Pedro's decline. He'll put up nice numbers, but they will start to decline from year to year from now on.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

2 runs in 2 innings, i wouldnt fret. He should pick it up. Pitchers have their tough times. that isnt being lit up to me either. sit tight, he should be OK

When I say he's getting hit hard, I mean that even when he gets outs, they're long fly balls or sharply hit grounders. He's walking a lot of batters (some on 4 pitches). Maybe I'm just so used to Pedro being Mr. Automatic that it's kind of scaring me. So far this year, he's looked more like Pedro Astacio than Pedro Martinez.

Maybe I'm just overreacting.

He's struggling a bit with his control today but he'll get the win.

The guy is an absolute stud who will once again put up Top 5 pitcher stats.

My only concern with Pedro is his inability these days to throw anything more than 90 odd pitches an outing.

The problem is that his fastballs this year have generally been 86-88mph.
