THANKS, THEO:

Pedro all torn up (ADAM RUBIN, 10/01/06, NY DAILY NEWS)

Pedro Martinez pointed to his right shoulder and made an ominous confession to Omar Minaya.

"I have feelings in there that I felt in 2001," Martinez told the GM after Wednesday’s sobering start in Atlanta, alluding to pain with the Red Sox that led to the diagnosis of a slight rotator cuff tear.

That shoulder has now given way. And now, not only will Pedro Martinez be out for this postseason, he will miss at least the first half of 2007, too.

How has such a small guy pitched that hard for that long?
