SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic - His favorite salsa music pumping from the stereo speakers, Pedro Martinez climbs on a stationary bicycle in the private gym in the home of his brother (and former major league pitcher) Ramon and begins pedaling. The three-time Cy Young winner and Mets ace has a four to five-hour afternoon workout ahead of him on this Thursday, a regimen he has been steadfastly following every weekday over the last three and a half months.

"This is vacation for all other players," Martinez says with a smile. "I've had a long winter."

Pedro was fun to watch in his heyday, but he's done. He hasn't been truly consistent since '03. He's better off saving his arm.

For his sake one can only hope.

Most times I can't stand Pedro, but this year I don't think he'll do well enough for me to even think about him. Though I may be wrong. But nonetheless the future of the Mets lies with John Maine, as we saw in the playoffs. I mean what is he only 25?

Don't forget about Oliver Perez, both him and maine could win 16 games each.
