bon voyage

Alex Spiers hits all the right notes in his fare-the-well Pedro column:
To think I did all that,
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no. Oh no, not me.
I did it my way.
Frank Sinatra, "My Way"

Yes, he did it his way. After an extraordinary seven-year run that featured peerless genius on the mound and both brilliance and eccentricity off of it, Pedro Martinez' Red Sox career came to its conclusion yesterday. Though the possibility of Pedro's departure loomed over the entire season, the finality of his exit nevertheless sounded a cold, wintry chord.

Bill Simmons also has an article up.
