Issue #3: Pedro

Pedro Martinez cannot start Game 1 of the NLDS. He has been so awful lately, and is quite clearly still hurt, that the Mets cannot afford to take the huge chance that he will put them in a 1-0 hole. And even worse, should he start Game 1 and lose, if the Mets win 2 of the next 3, he'd have to pitch the deciding game.

It is my personal belief that he should not be on the Division Series roster. I don't think the Mets will do that. Because if they do, and still advance, what would have to happen for Pedro to be added for the NLCS or World Series (god willing)?

This is the first one of these issues that has me seriously concern. The starting pitching was already the team's biggest weakness, even with a healthy Pedro. Now with Trachsel and El Duque after Glavine, it's the worst starting trio in the NL playoffs.

Its going to be Tracks and Glavine following El Duqe, as he sets up to pitch game 1. The Mets had the best record in the NL with troubled starting pitching all year. Hopefully, the magic continues and someone comes up big.
