Pedro Still Plans To Play In ’09

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post a "longtime friend" of Pedro Martinez says the righthander "fully expects" to play in 2009. Pedro is apparently sticking to his $5MM asking price and incentive-based deals do not appeal to him. His agent says he's already attracted interest from a number of teams and he's expecting more calls when holes appear in rotations around the league. 

Puma spoke with one executive who thinks $5MM is a fair asking price and is surprised Pedro is still available. Puma's sources say the Mets "never got into serious talks" with the pitcher and are unlikely to become involved now.
