This just in,

Contrary to a report late last week, Pedro Martinez will pitch before the end of July.
He will throw later this week in the bullpen, then is likely to return to the rotation by late next week.

Also, Nomar Garciapara is expected to make some rehab games in Triple A possibly as early as next weekend and be back with the Sox 5-10 days after that.

Carl Everett will be back right after all star break.

Catcher Jason Varitek is due back around mid-August as well.

The OLD Yankees will not be able to keep up with them once they are healthy, and I believe that GM Dan Duquette will make a big trade soon as well.
