Pedro_hamstring_040108We posted earlier today about the news of Piazza’s retirement.

But that’s not the only retirement news in the air.

Pedro Martinez told the NY Daily News today that this may be his last season in baseball. Pedro’s dad is very ill and he wants to spend more time at home.

"It's taking a toll on me and my family, my dad's situation," Martinez said, referring to a form of brain cancer afflicting his 78-year-old father, Pablo. "I haven't been there for them. I just realized that between last year and this year I haven't been there for my family, my parents.

"That'll probably drag me away from the game a little sooner than people expect.

"After this season, I'm going to go back home and think about it and I'm going to decide."

Low injury risk in cockfighting.... might not be a bad move for him...
