Phillies Breakfast Links, July 10, 2009: Pedro Martinez signing imminent?, More Roy Halladay, Return of Raul.

Pedro Martinez says his agent is negotiating with Philadelphia Phillies - ESPN
Righty scheduled to throw second session later today in Dominican Republic, according to Jayson Stark. Link with horrendous autoplay video goodness.

Bob Ford: Phillies don't need Martinez
I think Ford is missing the point: Yes, Pedro Martinez may very well be no better than the likes of Drew Carpenter or Carlos Carrasco. But if the scouting reports are to be believed, there's at least the possibility that Pedro is healthy and can contribute meaningfully.

Roy Halladay offers will be considered, Phillies "favorites"

Right now, the team most aggressively searching for a front-line starting pitcher is the Philadelphia Phillies, who no doubt would covet Halladay for their particular park for his ability to generate ground balls and missed swings -- he has a ground ball/fly ball ratio of 1.30, to go along 98 strikeouts in 116 innings this season. The question about the Phillies -- as it is with most teams these days, when the value of young players has never been higher -- is whether they would be willing to give up what the Jays would require in trade.

Again, autoplay video horrendousness.

Rich Hofmann: Will Phillies gamble on Pedro Martinez?
Seems to think the signing is inevitable, unless the workout today goes horribly, or the physical is jacked up.

Ibanez is near return to Phils
Let's say Jimmy Rollins has returned to his 2006-ish level of production, and we dump Raul Ibanez into that lineup. It could be downright scary.
