The magic number 100...

Sox vs. Mets, Game 2:
It's the 4th Inning and Pedro Martinez is already up to 75 pitches heading into the bottom of the inning. As Red Sox fans know well, Pedro has a nearly unbreakable limit of being able to throw no more than 100 pitches in a game.

The Sox got to Pedro early and thanks to a couple of goofs, one by himself and one by Lastings Milledge in left field, the Sox grabbed a nice big lead for Josh Beckett.

3 innings and that's it for Pedro. After giving up 8 runs he's out of the game already as the Mets go to their bullpen. Pedro had said he would have preferred to miss this start at Fenway and I guess we can see why. He is an emotional guy and is known for sometimes getting too keyed up for some opponents. It's almost like he psyches himself out, as we have seen numerous times when he was facing the MFY as a member of the Red Sox..

8-1 Sox, going into the 5th and this one has not turned out to be the pitching battle that I was anticipating, but that is ok. I can deal with a stress free game. Let's hope it stays that way...

Top of the 8th and it's 10-2, Sox. Stress free. I'm curious to see if they bring Pap out to close this one or if they save him and go with Timlin or Option C...
