'Jan Brady' Martinez Still Can't Let Go of Curt Obsession;
Disingenuous Delusionist Throws Tito, Theo, Lucchino, and Schill Under the Bus on Way Out of Town

"Schilling is 38, I'm only 33. The fact that I had an off-year doesn't mean that I can be below Schilling. Still, with an off-year, I'm way over Schilling as a pitcher and I've pitched pretty much like Schilling the last few years... Schilling's not taking anything away from me... And they should have thought about the rest of the stuff and not just Curt Schilling and his personal catcher. And all Theo argued was ``Schilling got this, Schilling got that.'' Everything we were going to negotiate was based on what they did with Schilling... Schilling doesn't even work with us. Schilling cannot run with me."
-- The Disingenuous Diva Lying Again to His Longtime Boston Agent Michael Silverman

Martinez to Mets Fans: "St. Louis was my first choice." On Piazza: "We can move him to first or somewhere. I would like every good player that is out there to be on my team. I want 'Tek. 'Tek is a good player, a good catcher." On Francona: "He was manipulated from upstairs." On Theo: "Theo got really arrogant on Fernando and I didn't appreciate it." On Nomie: "It wasn't like Nomar (Garciaparra), that wasn't happy playing the game. It wasn't like that. I played the game and I enjoyed it and I competed."

Edgah's Better: The ER Signing Conference Today at 2:00pm EST

Meter Throws Cab Under Bus

12.15.04: "I was down at Fenway yesterday afternoon talking to my moles... guy you trust, not part of front office smear campaign :-)... the OC was a high maintenance guy and was not well liked in the clubhouse. Here's the worst part, he was not good to the 'little people' (Nelson?) No. The clubhouse attendents, guys who work around the park, he did not show them respect."-- Weston's own John Meterparel, co-host of the Dennis & Callahan Show, 6:00am - 10:00am on Sports Radio 850 WEEI -- that's AM on your radio dial
