    Pedro looked amazing today

    Other then that bases loaded jam he got out of he looked amazing. He was sitting in mid to the upper 80s, usually around 86-88. He threw a cutter, a sinker, a NASTY curve and his great change up. He said he didn't have full command but he still looked amazing. His AB that he struck out Miguel Cabrera was a work out art. Like he said, just call him Picasso.

    Pedro was good, pretty remarkable how he goes into his first ST game almost 1/2 of the way through the spring and looked like he was in complete control.

    I'm very hopeful that we can get a 2005-esque season out of him, that seems a very optimistic though.

    I love how the first time through the order he did not throw a single breaking ball. First time through it was just fastballs and changeups, fastballs and changeups. Second time through he started buckeling knees and struck out 3 batters out of the 5 he faced 2nd time through with the curveball.

    The first one he through Cabrera the 2nd time through was sick. Cabrera's knees buckled, he took it for a strike and just laughed as he smiled at Pedro. The guy is an artist. So much fun to watch him pitch.

    If Pedro gets back to form then him and John combined could win us 35 games

    Your sentence structure never ceases to amaze me.

    But I agree, Pedro is the key to the whole rotation, I think we could have four 15 game winners this year. It probably won't happen but it is a possibility if everyone stays healthy.

    it's not possible. SDJets says our rotation is spotty at best.

    Santana was just amazing. From his bat to his glove to his pitching.

    My lord, this man is the best pitcher in baseball without question. Did you see how he got out of terrible jams? The defense made some misplays and he bailed them out with his terrific pitching. His FB was awesome, spotting it to both sides of the plate at 90-93 (A Met fan watching it from Os Broadcast said it was 93-96) and his changeup was amazing especially to the righties.

    Pedro in March isn't what you have to worry about.

    So you aren't worried about Beckett's back at all?

    Santana was dominant early and late, had a little blip in the radar in the middle, but worked his way out of it. Very nice outing.

    Santana was filthy tonight. I'm really confident in 1-4; whatever we get out of El Duque/Pelfrey is gravy.

    Any chance we can get 70+ wins from our 1-4 starters?

    Just sayin. We got 52 from El Duque, Maine, Perez & Glavine combined last year. I don't think it's out of question but I definitely think 60 willl happen with Pedro, Johan, Maine & Perez.

    70+ is Pushing it.

    The optimist in me can see 20 from Santana, 15 from Maine and Perez and 12 from Pedro (I don't expect 32 starts out of him) which would be 62 wins, which wouldn't be too shabby.

    Maine is going to surprise a lot of people this year. His improvement with his changeup has been terrific and like Ronnie said during his last start, he's starting to mature on the mound and he's starting to get "NASTY" on the mound.
