Will the Red Sox Ever Learn

...that Pedro Martinez is a seven inning pitcher? I have wanted to post this many times. Schilling can still pitch 8-9 innings, but Pedro is usually dominant for the first six inning and the seventh seems to be decided on his pitch count. But the days of pitching the eigth inning against an offense like the Yankees is over. Francona needs to cut Mr. Martinez off, and Mr. Martinez needs to realize that he is an outstanding pitcher - but winning the world series is more important than going eight of nine innings. Especially when you have Embree, Timlin, Williamson, and Foulke to choose from in the bullpen.
