Olney On Pedro, Holliday, Hairston, Manny

The Phillies are going to watch Pedro Martinez throw today, but he'll need more than an impressive workout to latch on with the NL East leaders, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney.

  • Pedro will have to accept that teams are going to want to pay him "like a 37-year-old pitcher who had a 5.61 ERA last season," not a future Hall of Famer.
  • Olney wonders whether Pedro's low ground ball rate might prevent him from succeeding at Citizens Bank Park.  
  • The A's aren't currently involved in trade talks regarding Matt Holliday or the recently-acquired Scott Hairston
  • One scout who watched Manny Ramirez this week said he looked "heavy-legged" and out of shape.
