Because Pedro Martinez pitched almost exactly how I imagine Jamie Moyer would have, if the whiner was starting tonight... give or take three or four runs. But he's crying in the bullpen instead.
The old school righty was handed plenty of run support during his first five innings in a Philadelphia Phillies uniform. As of right now, his new team is up 12-3 over the Chicago Cubs in the top of the seventh.
Martinez allowed three runs on seven hits, walked one and struck out five in his debut... which is kind of rough, starting your big league season out with a 5.40 ERA with just 10 starts remaining.
