Pedro is staying in Boston

I'm not disagreeing that he's probably not going to New York. I'm just saying it's crazy to believe there's no chance of it. With Steinbrenner, there's a chance of anything. Odds are, he stays in Boston, but there IS a chance he winds up in pinstripes (hopefully not though).

it'd be really funny if Pedro signed with the Yankees the year after the Red Sox win the WS. but it's not going to happen.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Yeah another old, overpaid, injury risk is just what the Yankees need! For the right price, I'd like to see Pedro stay in Boston. But, if he were to sign with the Yankees for big money, then I'd have a good laugh at that.

OK I can buy that...I suppose there's always a CHANCE he could go there...one of the things I get alot in my english discussion classes is, "You never know anything can't happen till it doesn't, you don't know anything can happen until it does"...With that in mind, all discussions of where Pedro or any free agent this offseason goes is moot because we won't know until they get there.

But that's just no fun. :-)

So Ill concede there's a chance he'll go to NY...I think it's MORE likely that he'll pitch in Japan next year than NY, but I guess that still leaves a small chance. :-b ;-D

The red sox will definately not pay pedro more than 12 mill a year. iirc, shilling is getting 12? The sox seem to be trying to stay on a smaller budget this year, 120 mill?, to avoid paying luxory tax and he simply is not worth that much. I would bet a lot of money that if he leaves boston, it will be to go somewhere warm. No way he goes to NY, chi, or other cold places where he will be stuck to the 100 pitch count every time. Somewhere warm I would be willing to bet his numbers would improve a lot. As a sox fan, it would be nice to resign him, but I really dont see it happening with the money he wants. This sox management wont overpay either (nomar) so I think he goes out west somewhere.

This is an interesting thought. Would the Dodgers be in the bidding for Pedro? How good does he become at Chavez? How badly does he hurt them with his bat? He looked pretty silly hitting against the Cardinals, but I guess that's what hitting instructors are for!

The guy has 1 year with an ERA over 3 in 7 years and he's "simply not worth that much". This place passes tough judgment.

And Sox management was going to overpay Nomar, just, Nomar wanted more. Last I heard they had offered him 15 million a year but he wanted 17. 15 is way more than they wanted to spend on him bu they offered anyway.

all this talk of Pedro having an off year ....

But, ...

But, ....


But, it was a "contract year" :-°
How in the hell could somebody have a bad year during a "contract year" ....

It just doesn't make any sense ...
I am so confused ... ;-7

Let the negotiations begin. Boston's offer:
The Red Sox have offered Martinez a two-year, $25.5 million contract with a $13 million option for 2007 and $2 million in potential performance bonuses, The Boston Globe reported. The package is similar to the one Curt Schilling signed last November.
