After an unscheduled day off from posting yesterday, here’s the top articles from today.
Pedro Martinez is no goat – Gerry Callahan, Dan Shaughnessy and Steve Buckley all wrote articles on Pedro Martinez’s start in tonight’s game six of the World Series.

I particularly liked Callahan’s proposal for the headline for the New York Post tomorrow should Pedro shut down the Yanks.

27 reasons to root against the Yankees – Jim Donaldson stretches as bit with some of these.
Also, be sure to head over to Patriots Daily to check out a midseason edition of Making The Grades, as well as a look at the 1994 Patriots in the 50th Anniversary Minute. (I have to confess, I had no idea that Bob Kratch was an All Pro selection that year.)
