    Pedro works out with Cubs

    Pedro Martinez Worked Out For Rays, Cubs

    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [June 11 at 8:03pm CST]
    8:03pm: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that "a source close to Pedro Martinez indicated" that the Cubs have watched him throw as well. According to Cafardo, the source indicated that "both teams have begun to at least explore how much money it would take" to add Martinez to their rosters.

    Carfardo adds that Martinez was throwing his fastball at around 94 mph.

    This must mean the Cubs aren't looking at Peavy?

    I would LOVE to see Pedro as our closer, we don't need anymore starting pitching. That being said, I doubt we can even afford him with this stupid ownership thing still going on.

    They still can't afford Peavy.

    I'd love to have Pedro in the bullpen.

    Maybe they use Pedro as a starter and then Wells can be used as trade bait.

    Re: Pedro works out with Cubs

    A couple years ago I was at 2 of Pedro's 3 losses on the year. Yes I can even jinx baseball teams.

    Anyhow, he would get so much out of his little frame. You can see why the injuries have taken their toll. Seems you need a big frame like Nolan Ryan or Clemens to really throw gas for a long time. Yes, Roger may have gotten help. Just found it curious that small framed guys just don't have the longevity.

    The Cubs starting pitching has the best ERA in MLB...if they are going to be spending money, they should be looking for a bat.
