I got a text from a very close friend that said. Paul White was on XM radio and reported that the Sox will be signing Pedro Martinez and Brandon Lyon by the end of the week.

Can anyone else confirm this report. I'm stuck at work

I like Pedro as a 50-100 ip starter. Nothing more.

If Pedro is reasonable money I would have no problem with it. The Sox are a big payroll team that shed some payroll, they are in the position to roll the dice with someone like Pedro or an Andruw Jones

Pedro's health is about as stable as Freddy Garcia's.

Pedro will take Contreras' place on the DL. The Sox probably look at Pedro/Jose being 1 SP with Marquez/Richard/Poreda being 1 SP as well. I like the thought.

I just hope if we do sign Pedro, he has at least one good year left in his arm.

What was the deal with Lyon in AZ..

Lyon had 26 saves last year but with a 4.70 ERA. 07 was his best year, posting a 2.68 ERA in 74 innings.

not saying either pedro or lyon are great at this point, but there ought to be veteran competition for those spots.

this seems kind of dubious since the most logical thing for him to do would be to throw in front of scouts to show his arm is ok.

Lyon would make our bullpen nasty. I'd take him in a second.

Pedro, eh. If it is an incentive type deal, cool. If we don't sign him, no biggie to me.
