I hate to say I told you so but...

Oh who am I kidding...I love saying I told you so!!! :-D

I stated after Pedro's first start that something was wrong. His velocity is waaaay down and so is his accuracy and movement.

My Prediction:

He'll be on the DL before the end of the month. If you own him sell now! You'll be lucky to get 3-4 more starts out of him before the all-star break. Be afraid, be very afraid.

some guys might wanna say hes declining (and he is somewhat), but i think this is more of an 'adjustment period' for him... hes just gotta realize that he just cant throw it past any hitter like he once could... i think he will slowly morph into more of a "get-the-early-out" pitcher
and yeah, damn it, its the all new "The Curse of the Orioles"- they lit him up last year too !+)

His fast ball barely hit 88 by the 4th inning. They were showing on baseball tonight how he was throwing 84 mph fastballs. You do NOT survive major leagues with 84 mph fastballs.

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

84??? Wow.. he was always between 88-91 in his first two starts.

I bet he is injured somehow.

It was in the 40s at game time tonight and felt colder. This has happened with Pedro before. Unfortunately he does not pitch well in cold weather. But please keep up the talk about selling him low.
