Pedro Martinez Moves Next Door

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

37 year old Pedro Jaime Martínez, who was born in Manoguayabo, Dominican Republic, is now a Major League Baseball starting pitcher with the Philadelphia Phillies.

You know it's official when Wikipedia is telling us.

According to sources, it is a one-year deal worth $1 million and includes $1.5 million in incentives. The Mets next face the Phillies in a 4 game series from August 21st - 24th in Citi Field, in case fans want to book tickets in advance to maybe see the chicken-hating monster.

Martinez will make a couple of starts in the minors before joining Philadelphia’s rotation. The Phillies watched Martinez pitch twice last week at their baseball academy in the Dominican Republic. They came away impressed and flew Martinez to Philadelphia late Monday night to take a physical. The Phillies will have a press conference on Wednesday announcing the signing.

Either way, Don Zimmer just went back into hiding.

Don is my cousin's cousin. Boy, I can't wait to hit off Pedro when the Phillies come to Washington.
