Will It Be a 'Let's Go Mets!' Lovefest Again?

The Disingenuous Diva Gets a Reality Check

"...But when Pedro says he wanted nothing more than to return to Fenway and finish out his career with the Sox, a little context would be nice. PedroĖone of the proudest men ever to put on a uniformĖhated the fact that Schilling had supplanted him as the teamís ace. He hated it so much that he didnít travel to New York for Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees, when a bloodied Schilling took the mound and did what Pedro hadnít been able to do since 1999: beat the Yankees in the playoffs. He resented the fact that the Sox had juggled their World Series rotation so it was Schilling who got the Game 2 start at Fenway. (That way, Schilling wouldnít need to bat and risk running on his ankle.) Pedro had been a savior in Boston, and he wanted a chance to do the same thing in New York. 'Fenway Park changed almost 100 percent from the time I got there the first day to the time I left,' he told the New York Times earlier this week. 'Iím glad Iím in the middle of it again, changing what seemed to be a dead atmosphere at Shea Stadium.' Pedro loves to be The Man. For almost seven years, he was in Boston, and tonight, he will be again. But letís not allow the misty-eyed tributes to cloud a clear-eyed view of reality." -- 6.28.06, Seth Mnookin, Pedro 2006: Revisionist history, reunions, and reality

Chilly Reception for Pedro in Sox Clubhouse?

"I heard some of the same things [Sox players kept watching movie when Pedro came in to visit clubhouse] that you [WEEI's Dale Arnold] did and I'm not surprised certainly. I've always said there's this perception in the real world, for whatever reason, that the 25 guys on the Red Sox are all best friends and obviously they're not and there was certainly a rivalry between Schilling and Pedro if that's what you want to call it."-- 6.28.06, the Herald's Tony Massarotti on Boston Sports Radio WEEI

Heroes and Goats

"[Yankees manager Joe] Torre added he's 'curious' to see Pedro Martinez's welcome tonight. 'They beat up on Johnny Damon, so it wouldn't surprise me what they do,' he said of the Fenway fans. 'Johnny was sort of a cult hero over there, more than anyone else, and they didn't treat him too favorably.' " -- 6.28.06, New York Newsday

Pedro Would Be Working for Joe, If the Yanks Had Only Ponied Up the Dough

"Imagine that, Pedro Martinez in New York. How many Dominican flags do you think there would be? I don't even want to imagine... The Yankees and Pedro? I don't even want to think about it... it would be great for George, not for the Red Sox." -- 3.26.03, Pedro Martinez, then of the Boston Red Sox

He Certainly Wasn't Going to Stay with the Red Sox

"I'll make my $17.5 (million) next year and I'm outta here." -- 8.24.03, Pedro Martinez, then the highest paid player in the game

But He Was Happy The Team Picked Up His Option

"I sacrificed a lot of money by not being a free agent the next two years... I'll let you know what I deserve."-- 4.9.03, Pedro Martinez, after the Red Sox picked up his option early
