It's being reported that pass rushing defensive end Jarvis Green had surgery on his knee, and will be out until at least December. There couldn't be worse timing for the injury, as the Pats are about to embark on a key stretch of games. In the next 5 weeks, they play 3 divisional contests (against the real teams in their division, not the Bills), and also play the 7-0 Colts and 7-0 Saints on the road.
Fellow D-lineman Ty Warren left the Buccaneers game early with an ankle problem and is "hopeful" to play Sunday. Losing Green for this stretch of games could prove to be very very painful.
Pedro Martinez, a.k.a. God's chosen vessel on Earth, the radiant one who shines his light on all of us, will get another chance to pitch on the biggest stage in baseball. The Phillies extended the World Series with their 8-6 win last night. Pedro will take the mound for them in Game 6.
It'll be cold in New York, mid 40's around game time. Pedro pitched decently in his Game 2 start, but wasn't able to go very deep into the game. The Phillies' offense was shut down by AJ Burnett.
Pedro will be up against Andy Pettitte, who'll be on 3 days rest. We just saw AJ Burnett on 3 days rest, and it wasn't too pretty. Maybe the 37 year old Pettitte will also struggle. Pedro will be going on full rest.
