Fuggedaboutem! Pedro Was Never Staying.
And D-Lowe Wanted Too Much Dough.

"The Red Sox made a decision last year to part ways with Pedro Martinez and Derek Lowe, who signed with new teams for a combined eight years and $89 million. In their place, the Sox signed Clement, Wells and Miller to deals totaling six years and $35 million. Of course, signings like Lowe and Martinez are long-term commitments, and those deals, too, could prove foolish by 2008. But given that the Red Sox ultimately offered Martinez three years and $40 million before losing him to the New York Mets, here is the question that remains unanswered: If the Sox were willing to give Martinez as many as three years by the time December arrived, why didn't they offer that to him in March 2004 in hopes of preventing him from going to free agency altogether?" -- Tony Massarotti, Boston Herald (...and NOT part of the cartel)
