Tonight, the Mets return to action at Atlanta’s Turner Field, where Pedro Martinez — making his first start in a month — will take on the Braves, winners of 14 our their last 21. Whether or not Martinez can hold his own as a member of New York’s new 6 man (!) rotation remains to be seen, but the Boston Globe has more compelling matters for us to fixate upon. In a Cribs-esque frenzy, the Globe’s Real Estate secton has seen fit to showcase the former abodes of Pedro, Nomar Garciaparra and Johnny Damon, all 3 of which are on the market.
The Globe’s helpful caption for the above photo : “Before baseball fame, Martinez lived in a typical house in Manoguayabo, built with palm wood, dirt floors and a tin roof.”
