Pedro's value should go up a decent amount...obviously the better park will help, but also he might be on a mission to prove that he actually was worth the money. That being said, I don't think I'm going to draft him, out of my disrespect for the guy. B-)

Less W's, lower ERA, same durability questions. If the Mets over-use him to make up for a weak BP, then his value goes down due to an increased probability of injury. If not, it probably does not make much of a difference.

The Mets aren't going to pitch him every fourth day or let him throw 125+ pitches a night because of their bullpen. The bullpen doesn't affect how you use the starting rotation, it's the other way around.

Pedro will post a better ERA, WHIP and K totals. His Wins might drop but then again we don't know what the Mets lineup is going to look like next year so we'll just have to see.

It works both ways as they certainly could try to squeeze 110 pitches or an extra few outs out of him because Felix Heredia looms in the 7th. We shall see what Randolph does.

Boston 2004 - 16 Wins, 227 K's, 3.90 ERA, 1.17 WHIP

Mets 2005 - __ Wins, ___ K's, ____ ERA, ____ WHIP

How could he possibly have anything close to the same run support? It would require a complete revamping of the Mets lame offense. Arguably it can't get much worse than last year, but their LF can't stay jhealthy, neither can their SS. Their CF is a 230 hitting K machine...Hidalgo has yet to be replaced...Piazza is near washed up. We shall see who they bring in, but to come anywhere near Boston's offense would be a very long reach.

I don't know how Randolph will manage his pitchers. Hopefully he is smarter than that and if he's not hopefully Peterson intervenes.

Heredia looms only as a specialist. I'm pretty sure they don't plan to use Heredia like they did Stanton. I'm sure there is a BP signing or two to be made and they have Strickland back to setup and Yates/Moreno/Dejean to handle the bulk of the relief.

The Mets should have a fairly decent bullpen next year. And with Leiter gone and no need to use Seo/Ginter as much it should be less taxed.

I think he will put up better #'s for the most part. Certainly more k's without the dh, probably a lower era no dh and a pitchers ball park. Wins could be less. And of course the big unknown: his health

I would not be aggressive in my selection of him
