According to a source on ESPN.com, Pedro Martinez and the Florida Marlins are reportedly in the early stages of negotiating a contract to bring Pedro to the young Marlins rotation.
To me this would be a fantastic signing for the Marlins who have a very young and talented rotation which could benefit greatly from having a future Hall of Famer join them. The 37-year old Martinez would bring his incredible resume with a career 214-99 record, 2.91 ERA, 3,117 strikeouts and an impressive three Cy Young awards. He would not only bring a world of experience to the club, but specifically playoff experience which would be crucial to an organization that I believe will win the NL East this upcoming season.
I have always been a huge fan of Pedro and would love to see him on a team like the Marlins who are so young and so talented with a great chance to make a lot of noise in 2009.
