Three Reasons Why Pedro Martinez is Way Cooler than You'll Ever Be
Just caught a Peter Gammons interview with Pedro. Below are the highlights, paraphrased.
3. When asked about last year's American League Championship series in which he hit Karim Garcia with a pitch, Pedro put it in perspective, saying, "Who is he? Pedro Martinez is a 10-year veteran of professional baseball. Who is Karim Garcia?"
2. When asked about the scuffle between him and Don Zimmer, the former Yankees bench coach, Pedro said "Why would anyone think I wanted to hurt a man as old as my Daddy?"
1. When asked about new teammate Curt Schilling, Pedro said that Schilling is good--"He's another Pedro Martinez." And that one is a direct quote, my friends.
