Pedro Martinez still looks like he could throw a few innings

This picture’s Rob Bradford snapped of new Red Sox special assistant Pedro Martinez made me smile:


Most dominant pitcher I’ve ever seen in the foreground, guy unpacking equipment from a truck in the background. Baseball!

    “Most dominant pitcher I’ve ever seen…”

    Absolutely! It’s great to see him back.

    Pedro was the most dominant in my 25 years of watching as well. I was just as excited when the Expos traded for him (silly Dodgers) as I was upset when they traded Johnson for Langston.

    Made me smile too.

    That picture makes it look like they just unloaded him from the truck in the background.

    Dang. Sure is good to see that guy. He looks in shape, too. This is a far better start to Red Sox baseball than last season’s. It was all Bobby Valentine last season.

    Who’s your daddy? Great to see him back. He does look in shape

    Pedro. I love him. He was never a member of any team I followed closely (except when he pitched), yet he was / is / probably always will be my favorite pitcher of all time.

    I’m a Red Sox fan but the Pedro I saw in ’99 & ’00 was probably the most dominant pitcher of all time.
