Schilling Tells It Like It Was with I-Me-My-Martinez
"He left the game the first start of the season in the middle of the game (referring to Martinez' departure on Opening Day in Baltimore). What does that say about the respect he has for his teammates? He wasn't there for Game 6 of (the American League Championship Series). I don't remember what his explanation was... It's obvious: The barometer he uses for respect is money."
-- Curt Schilling, Herald
"He came to the park when he wanted and did what we wanted. That was different to me. It took a lot of getting used to... I never said he got preferential treatment; I said Pedro was on his own program and did his own thing. That's how (the Red Sox) handled him. We went on despite it. I had to be walked along to handle it. There were multiple times this season when I wondered where he was." -- Curt Schilling, ProJo
