Pedro Not Considering Retirement

THURSDAY: Martinez cleared the air today, saying he hasn't considered retirement and (barring a major injury) he wants to pitch two or three more years.

TUESDAY: Mets starter Pedro Martinez explained his thinking to Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News.  Pedro is feeling good and should be back with the Mets this month.  However, he is not under contract past 2008 and retirement is an option.  Martinez's father has brain cancer, and he wants to be there for him.

Mets starters are fifth in the NL with a 3.89 ERA.  Johan Santana and John Maine make a great 1-2 punch, and Oliver Perez is doing fine.  A healthy Pedro should give the Mets one of the league's better rotations.  They're currently just a game back of the Marlins.
