I feel real sorry for them. The most dominant pitcher in the majors for the next 4 seasons. Such a pity. :,-(

Interesting opinion but there's already a thread on this so your spam wasn't neccesary. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

being a red sox fan, I respect what Pedro has done for us. But I went through a time when pedro was just a burden and If the mets want him for 4 years they can take him. They wasted money

Most dominant pre 2004. He's clearly not the pitcher he once was. There's lots of pitchers I'd take over him for the next 4 years.

The 3rd and 4th year of Pedro's deal are the real killer. Too bad they don't have Kazmir.... :-D

Based on last season alone then yes there might be a couple of pitchers I would rather have for the next 4 years. This is also a pitcher coming of 6 of the most dominating seasons in the history of baseball. He wasn't just the best, he was head and shoulders above the rest. I guess if he is only a normal dominating pitcher the Mets will have been screwed over.

I agree with Tav on this one. Just look at his numbers for the last 4-5-6 years, they are pretty good. Will he strike out 250? No probably not. Will he win the Cy Young? Maybe, but I doubt it. But he's still a dominating pitcher.

Pedro has not been able to pitch much more than 100 pitches a game for the past 3 seasons. Essentially becoming a 6 inning pitcher. Add to that shoulder issues and you have a very risky and expensive contract on your hands. The sox made the smart play and let him go
