Pedro rehabs

Pedro Martinez pitched three perfect innings in his second rehabilitation start Tuesday before allowing three runs in the fourth. Martinez, who has been working his way back from right shoulder surgery in October, threw 60 pitches for the New York Mets' Rookie-level Gulf Coast League team and then another 20 fastballs in the bullpen. On Aug. 8, the three-time Cy Young winner struggled through three innings and was pulled before reaching his target pitch count, allowing five runs and six hits in a Class A start.

All baseball fans have to be excited to see one of the best pitchers back on the mound for the Mets pennant chase. I have to admit, it's is refreshing to see Mets and rehab used in the same sentence that didn't involve Doc Gooden and 60 day stint at the Betty Ford Clinic.
