Pirates Interested in Pedro

Reports are that the Pirates are interested in acquiring free agent 37 year old pitcher Pedro Martinez, though they are understandably quesy at the $7M pricetag that Pedro’s agent has affixed to his oft-injured star.  Its not an unfamiliar gambit for the Pirates to bring in an aging star.  Hope to sell a few tickets, if he flops (like Derek Bell) they’re not out a ton of money.  If he succeeds (like Kenny Lofton) they can trade him to a contender in July.  Stay tuned.
