Pedro Back to Dodgers?

Jon Heyman over at SI.com has an interesting column on this topic.  I also caught his interview on Colin Cowherd’s show this morning on ESPN Radio and the logic makes sense: the Dodgers need a fifth starter and at least one veteran mentor for the young staff.  I don’t know about you, but I’m a little nervous that all isn’t going well with the Randy Wolf negotiations…why hasn’t Ned locked this guy down yet?

Plus, it would be a nice homecoming with Pedro coming homw to finish his career at Dodger Stadium.

This all assuming that the guy has enough gas in the tank to be effective.  When agents make comments like “He feels the best he’s ever felt” I get a little nervous.  Still the World Baseball Classic will be a great exhibition for Pedro and who knows, maybe we’ll see him pitch here in LA in the semis or the finals.

What do you think?  Should Ned sign Pedro Martinez?  The longer the negotiations take with Wolf and Looper, the more I’m leaning towards yes (with a one year deal, of course).
