Rantings and ravings from an admitted fan (as in fanatic!) of the Boston Red Sox. Updated only occasionally, but with my take on recent developments in Red Sox Nation. Updated more frequently during the end of the regular season and playoffs (hopefully).

Overreaction about Pedro

So Pedro Martinez was frustrated Friday night after losing to the Yankees again, and he popped off to reporters. He said something like the Yankees 'owned' him, and he wished they would just disappear. That turned into a media circus, with some of the Yankee players saying "You could kill me before I'd say something like that," and other such nonsense.

Can we all just calm down?

Pedro was down. He's had a tough run of luck against the Yankees, including the frustration of Game 7 of the ALCS last year, and he's allowed to shoot his mouth off after a frustrating loss. Pedro has always been a little quirky, and this little episode is no different. So he's a freak, big deal. He's still one of the best pitchers in the game, even though he's not as dominant as he once was.
