New York Mets ace Pedro Martinez will not take part in the WBC, because of an injured toe. The Dominican team manager, Manny Acta said: "I met with Pedro to talk about this; he did everything he could, and he was ready to join the team later in the competition, but his injury delayed his preparations." Acta also noted that Pedro is upset that he will not be able to "don the national colors." Martinez aims to be ready for Opening Day.
