    The Phillies announced that Pedro Martinez will make his 1st start of the 2009 MLB schedule against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night at Wrigley Field.  Martinez will oppose right-handed starter Jeff Samardzija – former standout wide receiver at the University of Notre Dame – in the 2nd game of a 3-game series between the defending World Series Champion Phillies and the struggling Cubs.  The 37-year old Martinez bumped the 46-year old Jamie Moyer from his spot in the Phillies starting rotation, while Samardzija is filling in for the injured carlos Zambrano.   Although Martinez did fan 11 guys in 6 innings of his latest rehab start, I’m thinking that he will be rusty – as will Samardzija – and it will be a high-scoring slugfest at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field…
