Bob Raissman | NY Daily News- Will Pedro Martinez be joining his TBS colleagues in Chicago? Before the Mets turned Jake Arrieta into a mere pitching mortal, Martinez was ready to throw in the towel on the Cubbies. “I don’t see the Cubs overcoming two losses in New York,” Martinez said. This, no doubt, will not make Martinez a popular man if he makes the scene Tuesday night with Dusty Baker, Gary Sheffield and Casey Stern, on the set inside Wrigley Field.
I would also assume that this means Lester will be pitching on short rest for Game 4 which lines him up against Stephen Matz and Harvey vs Arrieta, also on short rest, in Game 5. While this series certainly isn't over by any means...the Cubs certainly are on their toes. Game 3 is an absolute MUST WIN for them.)
