    Sounds like some extra rest and a chance for Petey to spend a few extra days away over the All-Star break.

    Awwwwwwwwww, Weedle Petey can't handle being owned at Fenway. Ain't that a pity. At least Clemens never decided to take himself out after he'd had lack of success against Beantown.

    He loved the adoration that the crowd gave him, the video tribute. Perhaps had he lived up to the billing on that day, we wouldn't even be discussing this. Then again, I'd have been happy had he won that game, or at least lost 2-1. A nice pitcher's duel would've been a good thing.

    Gotta love how Pedro always manages to be "injured" for the All Star Game.

    I read somewhere that the injured hip is still giving him problems. If I were Willie, I'd do the same thing.

    I don't think he would get one if he really wasn't hurting.

    Betcha the hip becomes the excuse that he didn't show up for work vs. the Sox.

    Hey, it sounds a lot better than being overcome by emotion due to a scoreboard tribute.

    You guys really think he's getting cortisone shots and skipping a start because he needs an excuse for losing to the red sox, or because he doesnt want to pitch in the all star game? interesting.

    He may be hurting a little bit, but I don't think he would be sitting this one out if it wasn't all star time.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I'm really just being bitchy because he pitches for the Mets instead of the Red Sox now.

    Generally speaking, I don't think professional athletes resort to cortisone shots and injuries to explain away one bad performance, particularly one that really didn't bother Pedro all that much.

    "I’m not disappointed at all. I think I won the game on one side. Not even a win would give me the satisfaction I got from the fans... I won my game, the most important game to me.. Regardless of the result of the game, I'll always remember this as one of the best moments of my life... I'm not disappointed at all. The reception I got overmatched what I did out there. I'm extremely happy..."

    I think the guy is hurt.

    I also think the jury is still out if it was a good/bad move for the Red Sox not to re-sign him.

    I still maintain it was a good move long-term as I think Pedro would be having a much harder time pitching in the good old AL East than in the NL East.

    How the Red Sox chose to replace him is another issue though.

    Any word on Clement-Wells?

    The New York Daily News is reporting that the Mets will recall Jose Lima on Tuesday.
    Lima could join the Mets' over-worked bullpen or he might make a spot start for the team.

    Clement's pitching in the GCL today, Wells isn't ready to throw off a mound yet, and neither is Foulke.

    I often wonder if the Sox had Pedro last year if they would of repeated...

    I wonder if Pedro makes that start if the Mets are only up a game or two instead of having a double-digit lead.

    That said, with this large of a lead, I think the Mets are playing it smart with Pedro.

    Pedro should take a few weeks off at some point to gear up for October. Petey only has so many bullets in that arm.

    Re: Pedro Scratched From His Next Start

    Jose Lima was rocked for seven runs -- five earned -- in just three-plus innings of work against the Marlins on Friday.
    Lima time hasn't been too fun for Mets fans this season as the right-hander will likely fall to 0-4 with a 9.87 ERA in four starts with the big club this season. The club would be better off starting whoever throws the hardest at the five-dollar radar gun outside the stadium on gameday than ever giving Lima another outing. He'll probably head back to the minors after the game
