Phillies Talking to Pedro

Just as Ruben Amaro says that he's not going to do anything major, ESPN is reporting that he has acknowledged talking to Pedro Martinez's agent about a possible comeback.

We explored this possibility a few months ago and don't like it.  Pedro was topping out at 86MPH in Game 6 of the World Series last year with normal rest, after only a few months of pitching.  What is to make us think he will be any more reliable being a year older?

If I told you the Phillies would let go of both of their starters from Games 1 and 2 of the Series this off-season, and then only bring one of them back, would you want/expect it to be Pedro?  THIS is the reason why you don't trade Lee for B-level prospects.
