Pedro Lied: Martinez Called Nelson
"Our Lucky Charm," Not Millar

"My friend is Nelson. His name is Nelson. He's 36 years old. He's from the Dominican Republic and very funny character, and very animated. Everybody's happy with him. He's our lucky charm now. Now a days. The guys are falling in love with him." -- Pedro to CBS4's Dan Roche, September 28, 2004

Marteamez Says Sox Were The Yankees' Daddy, Not Him:
"My Team Was Not Helping Me"

Youíre known for your calling-it-like-it-is personality. Have you ever said anything you regret?
Pedro: "I speak from my heart. Iím honest. I canít be any other way. But yes, there were actually two things Iíve said that Iíve come to regret. The first, when I called the Yankees my daddy. I was feeling it that night so I said it, but I was saying it more for my team, than for me. I was feeling like I could not beat them because my team was not helping me." -- Read the rest of Pedro's insane rants and lies in the NY Post's Tempo magazine

What ever happened to Nelson de la Rosa [Pedroís midget pal who became a sort of locker room personality with the Red Sox]?
"Nelson needs help. He is a special human being. I havenít seen him in a while."

But he says you broke his heart.
"He was angry that I signed with the Mets. He wanted me to stay with Boston."

So are you going to bring any lucky charms to New York?
"He was not my lucky charm. Iím not superstitious like some guys. It was Kevin Millar who thought this. I met Nelson through mutual friends and he asked to come to the game. I gave him tickets. And it so happened that we would win every time he came to games and people would go crazy for him, especially kids. Since we won some games, Millar started saying that he was the teamís lucky charm. But I am not superstitious. I only have certain routines that I practice."

Do you want to share them?
"I have two sets of underwear óa set that I wear for practice only, the other set I use to play." -- NY Post's Tempo magazine
