So with a couple days before negotiations are done; and after another excellent performance, the focus between now and Opening Day will likely be “Does Pedro get his extension?”. He says he isn’t talking once the season starts; but it appears he has backed off of his stance of “Extend me or bye-bye”. I have also softened my stance on the Pedro situation; as I mentioned in the message boards. Head over there and make your 2003 predictions.
Still wondering about the Castillo move. To be honest; I didn’t even realize Steve Woodward was on the squad until yesterday’s article in the Globe.
