Mets to Hall: Vote for Pedro

Martinez struck out eight Braves in 6-2/3 innings to anchor the 4-3 win and keep their hold on first place long enough to generate a season-highlights video this Christmas.

“This is probably one of the biggest things that’s happened in my career, because of how far I’ve come from the first day and all the doubts about my body type,” Martinez said afterward, obviously referring to his child-bearing hips.
