Written by Jason Singer on . Posted in Posts, Sports

The New York Mets didn’t play yesterday, but they sure felt like winners at the end of the night. In Class-A St. Lucie, Mets ace Pedro Martinez (pictured) completed his best rehab outing since undergoing rotator cuff surgery last October. Pedro tossed five innings and allowed zero earned runs, striking out four while walking only one. Sure [&hellip
